Reading is actually fun!

For all of you skeptics out there-anytime is a good time to read! Take today for instance, it has been in the triple digits for the last 2-3 days so outside time is limited to mornings and evenings unless you're a lizard! Perfect for finding a good book and stretching out on the sectional (or swinging in one of those hanging chairs-I've got to get me one of those!) with a cold glass of iced tea. I've started reading a great book by Dr. Don Colbert, The Seven Pillars of Health. It is fantastic! He has written many series of health books on general and specific topics. Check his books out on Amazon.com! You can search him out right here on my site if you scroll down midways. He is a very intelligent man and has a lot of good stuff to tell you that will keep you and your family in great health! Before I go, I want to leave you with a little jewel of a thought: "In order to do something, you must be something." Goethe

One Thing

My next book is near completion (Think Your Way To Success)and pre-orders will be available in the near future! I will be listing workshop events, seminars, and speaking engagement dates as they come closer starting next month. Meanwhile, keep this in mind: It only takes one person to do one thing to make a positive difference in the world. What is your 'one thing' going to be today?

Wildfires

With temperatures in the 90's and 100's, it is even more important to be careful of flammable materials, campfires, cigarettes, matches, and electrical appliances. Fires are sprouting up frequently all over the nation. Today in Santa Clarita, I could smell the smoke from one not too far away. Brush is dry and quick to catch on fire, so please everyone, make good and careful choices. Save lives!

Home Again

It was nice to get back home after crossing the hot Mojave desert yesterday, but I really missed the smell of the pine trees and warm mountain dirt this morning as I sipped my hot tea. Looking out to the sea of houses in our neighborhood and listening to the rumble of cars and trucks as people made their way to work left me with a feeling of sadness. I enjoyed gazing at the tall, old pines and the snow-topped mountains sitting around the edge of the lake. The temperature was a satisfying 68-80 degrees during the day and a light breeze in the afternoons. Being able to see nature at it's best wasn't too shabby either (a coyote wandering the meadow stream, chipmunks and squirrels all about, an occasional bunny, and of course the two bear sightings-one crossing the street between our cabin and the cabin next door, and then one wandering through a neighborhood and sitting down to wait as we watched him from 12' away)!! I've made up my mind to do what I've wanted to do for years--move to the mountains. Not to Lake Tahoe (too far from friends and family), but to a neighboring group of mountain communities only 30-45 minutes away from where we are now! I'm going to make some day trips up there over the next month and find out more about the area. I'll keep you all informed. Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy some of the pictures from the trip!
