Online Musings: A Belief in Spooky Healing

Einstein called it “spooky action at a distance.” Last year quantum scientists were finally able to prove with certainty that subatomic particles — the stuff of which the entire universe, including you and I, are made — can affect each other at a distance.

Online Musings: Belief-Based Healing

Can the mind completely cure the body? The human brain is said to have more synapses than the Milky Way has stars, so that’s a miraculous amount of intelligence the brain is channeling from birth to death. Anything is possible.

Musings: SOS — Save Our Soil!

If you want to learn more about nature, bring a child into your life. My 18-month-old granddaughter, Bella, loves nothing more than walking outside, exploring sticks, stones and plants, and sifting dirt through her fingers.

Weekly Musings: Oceans of Love

With the use of plastics expected to double in the next 20 years, the World Economic Forum concludes that by 2050, pound for pound, there will be more plastic than fish in the world’s oceans.

Weekly Musings: Ageless Medicine

One of the perks of being a magazine publisher is receiving advance review copies from book publishers.

Weekly Musings: Every Little Bit Helps

Last week at the Natural Living Expo I bought some alpaca felted dryer balls from Plain View Alpaca Farm. It’s winter and my clothes have taken on a life of their own from the static electricity in my dryer.

Weekly Musings: Expo Afterglow

I believe this is the first year I actually enjoyed the Natural Living Expo!

Ageless American icon Bob Dylan noted in a recent interview, “Young people can be passionate. Older people gotta be more wise.” I’m discovering that one of the healthiest things I can do as I age is to slow down.
