Stone House, Wine, the Forest, and the Sea

Common Sense and Beauty – Jane Goodall

I've been thinking much about how I want to go forward with my life. I have some pretty good ideas about what next - but not always the energy to carry through as consistently as I'd like. Jane Goodall has always been an inspiration to me - I think this video will be good for me to ...

It was . . . so real

After all the haze and horror of the 80s, the 90s was a time of hope, even among the rubble. Music, art, creativity, yoga and spirituality merged and emerged from the grayness and dust of the city, of the darkest places.

Born on a Thursday #58 – Fire, Rain, Bicycles

Fire. So much smoke. Rain. Finally. I almost cried when we went back for one more thing. Mountainaire was eerily still with low-lying smoke. I said, "It is strangely beautiful." Tom replied, "It would be beautiful if it weren't so devastating."
