My yoga journey began a few years ago at the House of Yoga in Berkley. My first teacher was a wise woman named Jane, who lured me in to her Sunday morning “Gentle Yoga” class. I have to admit I was a little bit intimidated by yoga, but this class sounded interesting and I was […]
Remember when summers seemed to last an eternity? I’m not sure exactly when that changed – maybe it has been a gradual shift over time. Now, if I don’t make an effort to get outside and experience the change of seasons it would be easy to forget that its happening. Nature is a great teacher […]
Natural foods are very near and dear to my heart. I’m not a master gardener by any stretch of the imagination, but I so want to be. I can just imagine a yard full of fruit trees and a lovely weed free garden and gorgeous perennials, bulbs and flowering trees that bloom in a wonderful sequence from early spring to late fall. But the reality is not quite there yet.
It’s wonderful to have a birthday in June. I always thought that it was excellent planning on my mom’s part since I received gifts every 6 months. My little brother, born in December, didn’t have it quite so good since his birthday always merged into holiday celebrations.
It’s wonderful to look around and see all the ‘green’ everywhere along with the bright yellow forsythia bushes and the intoxicating fragrance of lilacs. This is such a beautiful time of new beginnings. I like to think that Mother’s Day honors Mother Nature right along with our own mothers.
As a kid, I remember watching the Keep America Beautiful PSA, the now-famous commercial in which a Native American looks out over a scene of terrible pollution. When he turns his head back to face the camera, a single tear falls down his cheek.
I believe that the best place to start inspiring change is within yourself. Books can be truly inspirational. Although I don’t get a chance to read as much as I would like to, I am fortunate to live near a library with an extensive audio book collection.
Life can get pretty serious sometimes. The struggles and challenges we all carry are difficult enough. Add to that the world of grief and strife around us – locally or globally – and it is no surprised that we are stressed and overwhelmed. Our own attitude is all that we may be able to control […]
Here it is—a brand new year filled with amazing new possibilities. It’s a good time to learn and grow from the past and open up to all the potential that this amazing new year has to offer.
I am so truly blessed to be on this incredible journey of building a healthy living magazine in Wayne County.
