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!

Well Grounded

Tonight we had dinner at the Mexican restaurant in town ( Alex sat beside me and at one point she leaned in and hugged me. I said to her, "You know, you could just stay this big forever. Four is awfully nice." She said, very seriously, "No, Mother. I have to get bigger. I need to get bigger so that when I sit in a chair my feet can touch the ground. Like this..." sliding her butt down to put her feet firmly on the floor. Okay, baby, you can get bigger.
