I believe in simplicity. I believe in feelings and family, friendship and fidelity, forgiveness and fortitude. I believe in miracles, meditation, motherhood and make believe and that music is the only real magic this world has ever seen. I believe in concocting and consuming colorful cocktails and fussing over and feasting on fabulous food. I believe in living out loud. I believe in laughing until your face hurts and loving until your heart breaks. I believe in behaving boldly and when warranted, badly, taking bubble baths and being barefoot. I believe in poetry, puppies and playing in the park. I believe in seeking without ceasing that which sings to my soul and strengthens my spirit. I believe in dancing in the rain and digging in the dirt. I believe in honest expression and the golden rule. I believe in Nature and naps and that naïveté is sometimes necessary. I believe in goodness and gratitude, grit and grace. I believe in unity and the power of the universe. I believe in being authentically awesome. I believe in being better today than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow. I believe in challenges and change and growing pains. I believe in the inherent worth of every creature, being and life force on this planet. I believe in honoring the individual journeys and paths of people whether I understand them or not. I believe in letting people live their truth and trusting that it’s right for them. I believe in lifting up and letting go. I believe that death is just as sacred an experience as birth and that it is never, ever an end.

Mostly, I just believe that I’m never going to stop learning what it is I believe.

Glass Gem Corn, to be precise. We’ve got the story of how these brilliant kernels (and other designer crops) came to be.  Blue tomatoes! Pinberries! Terrestrial wasabi!

Anonymous benefactor leaves car on paralysed Australian mother’s front lawn
An anonymous benefactor has given some freedom back to an Oak Flats mother left paralysed after the birth of her third child. 
Jessie Bruton is teaching herself to walk again after losing feeling in her legs because of nerve damage while she was pregnant with Klay, now six months. 
It’s a slow, painful process but her spirits were lifted recently when she returned home from a family outing to find a Nissan Pathfinder with a big red bow on her front lawn. 
The car, which had been fitted with hand controls, will fit the 27-year-old’s walking frame and wheelchair as well as prams and equipment for her three young boys.

Nature is my greatest teacher. My baby is out in the world flying on her own & these babies aren’t far behind her. All must grow, all must fly.
