Lustables: Baby Head Wheatgrass Grower

Don’t throw the baby out with the bad batch of wheat grass.  Yes, wheatgrass is awesome. It will return your grey hair back to its rightful hue; supercharge your system with vitamins, minerals and enzymes. It’s a bit grassy on the palette, but who cares, given that it’s a solar […]

Air Jardin

My thumb is more blue than green when it comes to plant care and that is why I love the idea of those ethereal air plants that hang from lovely vessels and only require a weekly dunking (just like my kids), and to be fertilized at least once a month. […]

Jesus Is an Environmentalist

What I know about Jesus is based solely on what I’ve heard and what I’ve read. My opinions on the man come from hearsay along with some good books, so to speak, that paint a fairly clear picture of his times and culture, if not of Him Himself. Unfortunately, when […]

Feeling Squashed? 3 Tasty Recipes to Use Up the Abundance

Mosaics are an ancient art form, yet look utterly at home in today’s artisan, eco home, bringing color, texture and depth indoors or out. More grounded and less ethereal than stained glass, more substantial than paintings or fabric, mosaic pieces have an incomparable presence. I came across Berkeley, Calif., artist […]

It seems an unspoken rule that all modern businesses never have enough conference rooms free. So here’s an idea – go sit outside. During my Archaeology degree here in England, when the weather was good enough (a rare occurence), our lecturers would hold seminars on the lawns outside the department, […]

Encircled in Autumn Color

We go to my brother’s Hidden Hills, Calif. manse for almost all holidays, mostly because he has a large, comfortable spread which he embellishes from one end to the other with ghosts and gobblins, Easter bunnies or prancing reindeer. But I put my moccasin-covered foot down when it comes to […]

Alice Glass’s Moving New Single Helps Abuse Victims

I’ve always been a Crystal Castles fan, so I was thrilled to hear that Alice Glass had released a new single. (About a year ago, Glass announced she left Castles.) Then, I heard about the subject matter and intent of Glass’s single and I was, honestly, beyond the moon. When […]
