My LIttle Radish

Little thoughts of the coming growing season ... a sketch of a radish I did on my old old drawing tablet a while back.

Eat Your Fortune?

This was new to me ...

If you don't eat all your fortune cookie, then your fortune won't come true.

I overheard this while eating at an oriental restaurant the other day. One patron was urging another to eat all the cookie. This might be fine except that I never eat the cookie, never! It is an allergy thing.

What if I really wanted that wish? It would be fine if the wish was undesirable. Then, by not eating it, the fortune would be null and void. It is a bit amusing to think of it, but then think how fear driven it is.

So, I am not a subscriber to that. I'll "set my fortune free" and let it go to the compost, and trust in the Sweet Sacred Invisible to bring me my fortune.

David Winston, founder of Herbalist & Alchemist, is truly a wizard. I have attended his classes, stood in ceremonial circle with him, and have taken his products, with excellent results.

One of the most remarkable healings I have had with his products was when I took his formula, David Winston's Women's Transition Formula™ right after surgery, in experiencing surgical menopause. My doctor had wanted to start me on estrogen replacement, and I had decided that that was not an option for me. I started on his formula right after surgery, and made the transition smoothly. I kept up taking it for about a year, and then transitioned to a simpler program, with the help of herbalist Greg Patch, who had gotten me started on David's formula in the first place.

David's website has many resources, in addition to his formulas. He has information on the uses of all of the herbs in his formulas, as well as a  library of CDs of many of the classes he teaches, with class notes. I highly recommend him - he is a great resource.

winter serenity

Amidst small city affairs, a green refuge ...

we can find serenity if we take the time to return to Center, and with a grateful heart, witness the everyday beauty that is all around us.
