New Year 2015

“New Years Day.  A fresh start.  A new chapter in life waiting to be written.  New questions to be asked, embraced, and loved.  Answers to be discovered and then lived in this transformative year of delight and discovery.  Today carve out a quiet interlude for yourself in which to dream, pen in hand.  Only dreams give birth to change.”

~Sarah Ban Breathnach,  Author of Simple Pleasures: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy.

Christmas 2014

“I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys.”

~Charles Dickens

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!


“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… it’s about learning to dance in the rain.”

~Vivian Greene

The rain has come to drought-parched California.  So many are so grateful; so many are  dealing with the aftermath of flooding.  Lest we get too far ahead of ourselves, the statistical evidence is that it would take three years of this kind of weather to end the drought.

Although we are inundated by the rain, it is vital that we continue our water-wise practices.


“The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible and achieves the impossible.”

~Winston Churchill


“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”

~Ralph Waldo Emerson
