Bicycle Yoga: Peddling into the Dark

Over sand? And in the PITCHBLACKDARK of night where I nearly ran into a wild animal right in front of me on the side of the road? It... Read More

Getting the Message


Maybe it’s just a dopamine reaction from the absurd amount of post-Valentines chocolate I’ve consumed, but this weekend I’m getting the peaced-out result of my yoga practice. It started Friday when I found myself practicing stillness, not by choice, but because I was stuck in Presidents Day Weekend exodus traffic on 85N en route to Buckhead. Few things are more... Read More

Farm Bus: Gardeners on a Roll


From Durham, NC, a bus-load of idealistic farmers dream of teaching the nation to grow. Grow vegetables, that is.

Believe Nothing

 “Believe nothing.
No matter 
where you read it, or who said it, even if I have said it, unless it agrees with you own reason and your own common sense."

               - Buddha

“The same molecules
that make up the food
we consume become
the molecules of our
minds and bodies.
So, unless you grow
your own food, you
should choose a
farmer as carefully as
 you choose your 
doctor or pastor.”

  _ Tim Willey, Farmer
             Madera CA
 “If man made it… don’t eat





        - Jack LaLanne

  “If we are
 always arriving and
 departing, it is also
 true that we are 
 eternally anchored. 
 One's destination is 
 never a place but 
 rather a new way of 
 looking at things."

           - Henry Miller
  “The rest of the
 world lives to eat…
 I eat to live.”
- Socrates
“Teachers open the door, 

you must enter by 


         - Chinese proverb
