Why search for a pot of gold? All you need is beneath your nose!

Too often we spend our lives searching for something that isn't there. During the search, we miss what is already there. Living in the present moment is the pot of gold we are all looking for.
Happy St. Patty's Day!!!

Naturehood's recipe we're all looking for. When children eat this healthy and scrumptious dessert, they eat their lessons, literally.

Fan mail from a poet.

When my book first came out, this amazing girl sent me the nicest note, I just found it tonight. So much has happened since... a touching moment.

So grateful that Naturehood has been planted into this neighborhood gem with an assortment of colors for every mood~

When you walk into Lula Mae in Pasadena, it feels as though you've entered a secret garden. The store is sprouting bouquets of inspiring gifts from every corner-- it's hard to pick just one.

I walk the path of the ancient ones. Nature is my church.

Naturehood is in all three locations of Louisville's oldest Independent Bookstore.

Playing Mantis in NYC

Among towering brownstones on Moore St. is a giant, fire hydrant of a shop that stops you in your tracks and makes you feel like you're 7 inches tall... I entered a treehouse in the middle of NYC with branches bearing all kinds of fruit, I was just waiting to hear an owl hoot :-) 
It's here that Naturehood has found a new home, in this forest of wooden toys, fairies and gnomes.

Your future lies beneath your hat

Age 18 and the Present Moment.
 Right-sized: A new term a dear friend taught me the other day during a tea party. In other words, being in the right mind size. Not seeing yourself too tall or too short. Automatically, of course my mind took me along Alice in Wonderland's winding path. Her "Drink me" concoctions she carried throughout the adventure... could that have been a metaphor to Lewis Carroll's amazing story?
My whole life, finding the right sized hat has been challenging.
Going through some old pictures this eve, I realized how many lives I seemed to have lived up to this point, wearing hats that didn't quite fit.
My beliefs, spirituality and oneness with God has given me a true purpose. In my teens, material and ego ruled me, and in some ways made me too tall. My hat was so snug that it caused a life full of headaches... My early 20's, I was too short, with a hat so big it covered my face, blinding me from seeing my true dharma. I can honestly say that at this moment, today,  I have found peace through it all, and hope to keep upgrading to a new hat as time goes on, making sure the hat fits.

This month's custom reincarnature portrait winner~

There is no wonder that Why Not? continues to have lines out the door after 51 years... 
It's a diverse island of its own.
