This is the story of our adventures -- every day and extraordinary; our dreams -- tiny and grand; our gardens -- ornamental and sustaining; this is the story of our journey.  We are a family of four living a mindful, simple life here in Los Angeles County.  We are green, conscious, and forward thinking.  We keep an eye on the past because some of the best things have already been done and bear repeating.  Walk and talk with us, have a glass of wine, taste a peach or a tomato, blow some bubbles and watch them drift up over the canyon ridge.  Enjoy!

My Village Green Pic of the Day -- June 26 -- Or, I am more than just a booby

My younger daughter greets me excitedly every day when I get home from work, "Mommy's home! Mommy's home! BOOBY BOOBY BOOBY!""

Yes, all moms know that motherhood takes a lot of our roles and puts them on the backshelf or in the drawer, hopefully with a lavender sachet to keep them fresh. We become not even a sum of our parts. In my case, for part of my day, with Greggie, I am but one part. My right breast. But I am more than my right breast, more than all my parts, more than just Alex and Greggie's mommy. Mothers lose touch with their "me" and sometimes forget they are a person. And also sometimes forget they are somebody's wife or lover. Getting back in touch with our "me's" is important for the mamas, and the daddies!

So here is my June 26 collection of POD's == all blasts from the past, portraits of Marlyn, with a nod to HNT given the amount of skin involved.
