Vrrmm, vrmm, the aggressive purr of the Porsche engine made Julia smile. She held the steering wheel firmly, relaxed, yet ready to go as soon as the light turned green. It was still chilly at the world-famous racetrack, but the sun in the fresh morning sky was steadily rising. It made Julia even more eager for the race to begin; its warmth washed over her boosting her confidence. The light changed, she planted her foot on the gas and took off! The first turn came in seconds, she was a bit wide on it, but…


Chir, Chir, Chir, the distinct singing of the Robins signaled the start of a new day. Annie smiled at their sound as she stood at the end of the garden, near the meditation platform. She listened to the flock for a few minutes, a precursor to her morning meditation. As she got comfortable on the cushion, on cue, the chorus ended their song and flew off, most likely searching for the twigs, grasses, and mud needed to finish nest building; eggs would be laid soon. …


Reboot your mood with Serotonin Boosting foods

“The sun is shining. The sky is clear. Our water vats are full and the waters around us are starting to look clearer. So why do I feel so sad,” thought LJ. He looked out at the horizon and wondered if all the effort to build and live on the ark was worth it. It was 2022, he and Annie had been living on the Ark of Seeds, for two years responsible for the 930,000 seeds that represented earth’s entire biodiversity. Their lives changed unalterably when the planet was consumed by 500 days…


The Missal on the Thistle

Boom, boom, boom, the steady pounding of the crashing surf against the jagged cliffs, a vibrant sun reflecting off ocean swells, and a cerulean sky were an homage to the glorious wildness of the California coastline.

Annie and LJ were driving picturesque Highway 1 to Castroville to visit Victor and Lynda on their farm.

She looked through the window, “I see the surfers riding the big waves. What a perfect day to be out there. I am so glad we are going to the farm. I have been in the mood for artichokes for a…


The Protection Posse in your garden

As the moon rose, the caterpillar began working on the tomato leaves. She was only a few hours old, and her genetic makeup required she eat and get fat fast to become a moth and stay alive long enough to mate and lay eggs. She munched steadily. Suddenly her antenna picked up a vibration, a change in the air. She froze, but it was too late; Assassin stung! After finishing her off, the Assassin bug moved to another section of the plant. …


“Finished!” Lisa happily added the last period to the last sentence of her next book. After the huge sales of her recent bestseller, Surviving the Chase, she felt confident about this one. “I’m going to celebrate by making an amazing meal for the family.”

She went to the garden to pick veggies, including an eggplant she had been watching. It was huge, so it would be the basis for a delicious Roasted Eggplant Panzanella with Capers, Olives, and Pine Nuts recipe. As she got closer to the garden, her eyes got bigger and bigger. The eggplant, along with her peppers…


As the sun slipped below the horizon, twilight began its ascent, bringing another beautiful day in the bay to a close. The mother deer, keeping her twin fawns within eyesight, stepped lightly through the brush beneath the old oaks, often pausing to sniff the air for the scent of a coyote. Early evening was when she felt safest to travel to the salt lick. Neighbors left the block on a well-traveled deer path far away from area flower and veggie gardens. This deer had “marked” the salt block area, so she felt comfortable bringing her family to it. …


The top six energy boosting and weight loss seeds

Azul, the neighborhood bluebird, circled the sunflowers, but the emerging blooms were still tight buds, and it would be a while before she had access to their delectable seeds. In frustration, she flew into the kitchen window, repeatedly banging her wings. Annie threw a tea towel at the window to shoo her away. It worked; the cerulean bird flew off.

LJ walked into the kitchen, “was that Azul banging on the window, again?”

“Yes, I watched her circling the sunflowers; she knows one of her favorite seeds is growing and is…


The internal and external health benefits of Aloe Vera

The first rays of morning sun moved across the ceiling of Annie and LJ’s bedroom. The sunshine glowing through the skylight usually felt friendly, helping both wake up to the promise of a new day. Recently though, Annie was already awake, having spent another restless night tossing and turning.

“I have got to start getting more sleep,” she thought. After completing her morning meditation, she took her glass of water from the nightstand and walked into the bathroom. Peering at her skin in the mirror, she noticed the circles under her…


Getting Back to Normal with an Adrenal Friendly Plan and Diet

“Annie, I just got a text message. We can get our vaccines if we go right now. I hope the car starts; we haven’t driven it in so long,” joked LJ.

Minutes later, they arrived at the medical center. Signs directed them to the vaccine line, where there were about a half dozen cars ahead. They registered, got their shots, and drove home.

Annie pulled off her band-aid and tossed it, “Well, that was easy. It looks like our second shots are in two weeks?”

“Yes. I have meant…
