I’m Not New to This, I’m True to This


Recently, I posted an ad for one of my Spiritual Spritzers on my professional Facebook page. A stranger (older Caucasian man) commented saying, “Great business model - buy a bunch of spray bottles, fill them with some sort of cheap good smelling (or at least not bad smelling) stuff, slap a New Agey name [...]

Nature’s Natural Ventilator


If you’ve listened to the news, you know that at this time there are not nearly enough ventilators available for all those who need them. In the meantime, there are other options for those who are not yet in dire need. The first thing I would highly recommend is to acquire some eucalyptus oil. You [...]

Nature is Our Best Defense


On Monday, March 2nd, a day or so after it was reported that a case of the Coronavirus was found in the United States, I just happened to be going to shop at the Park Slope Food Coop to purchase a few items.  I wanted to pick up very little in terms of groceries, [...]

Pearls are porous, and as such, their most valuable asset, their nacre (outer coating), [...]

Honoring Toni Morrison

A Sacred Time


It’s the holy season, the season of Lights. In every culture Light is symbolic of the Divine Light, that Light that is within us all that reflects our highest nature. On this first day of the Winter Solstice, I would like to remind you of the spiritual power that is available to us at this [...]

Lynette With the Big Heart


In the mid 1970s, I was introduced to one of the most talented people  I have ever met, Lynette Epps. I don't think there's anything that Lyn can't do, from jewelry to construction, and everything in-between.  At that time Lynette was an airline stewardess aka flight attendant for TWA - Trans World Airlines. I [...]
