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!

Social Responsibility

Perhaps today, our nation's day of financial reckoning and atonement, has imbued in Alex a sense of communal responsibility.  This afternoon she told me, "When I grow up I'm going to do my chores.  I will get up in the morning and go potty and get dressed.  Then I will cook and clean the dishes.  Then I will hang the  clothes to dry and go work in the garden."

Do you think I can expect this to start in the next couple weeks?
