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!

For Kat

There are people you meet on your journey who touch your soul, become part of your being.  Then the ribbon flows on and you leave those parts, stop pressing those places, make new spaces.  The friends aren't gone, they are just  And sometimes it's so hard to get beyond  But then, once in a while, you let go of the immediate and think across the miles and the years and you want to say, "HELLO FRIEND!  Here I am!  I miss you!  How are you?????  Look at me now!"  And often when you're a mama, it's not so much "look at me" as "look what I made!"  So, for my sweet old (as in, we've known each other a while!) friend, here are my crazy, wild lovelies.  Or the last couple months of them anyway.

Ready for the hot tub.

Sleeping angels.

A girl and her car.

Gregorie Ann.

Alex John.

Bubble in bubbles.

And another. 
In the tipi.

Funky chicks.

Light Bright.

1st Grade Smarties.

Kindergarten Sweets.

Through the forest another comes laughing.

And ready for cake.

Or ice cream.

Sisterly love.

Gregorie's idea of the tooth fairy.




CO2 experiment.

Alex's poem.

Make lemonade!

It's all good!
Flowers for you!
