This past month, I have had a chance to consider the females in my past and present life who have been an inspiration and role models. My Mom, of course, made a huge impact on my life as a woman who had her own daycare business. And, of course, she was a great Mom. There […]

Blame it on Harry Potter

My summer reading often combines oddly matched topics that yield some intriguing cross-over of concepts. Working my way through a scientific tome, Bruce Lipton’s “The Biology of Belief,” I find that evidence-based research now shows that the “energy” medicines have been validated. According to Lipton, DNA is activated or suppressed by the input sensed through […]

Mo Price spoke to the Mission Hills Garden Club in June about Australian native plants that thrive in our Mediterranean climate.

August – the “Reset Button” of the Year

Living in an urban area I have gotten used to the sounds of the city. Late night sirens and passing traffic are all part of my daily noise. When my friend Pat invited me to spend a weekend with her and another friend at her mountain retreat I was delighted, a sojourn into the world […]

Picnic Adventures

The word picnic always conjures up fun and adventure for me. In my childhood, our family summered at Lake Tahoe and we enjoyed yearly family reunions on the granite sands of Nevada State Beach.

Confessions of a Restaurant Addict

I used to live in the suburbs, not far from SDSU, where there were few decent restaurants to choose from whenever I felt like going out to eat. There were the usual well known chains, a good deli and a very good seafood place. But that was about it. So unless it was an occasion […]

What if?

In case you hadn’t noticed, our world is changing. In the past several months, I have noticed and experienced a growing effort by many individuals to be actively involved in moving the world to a new place.
