Oh yeah, happy holiday weekend. Thanks to all of you who have actually worked (if they let you) for a living. Thanks to all those in the past who fought for a 40 hour work week – and don’t you wish we’d kept fighting for a 30 hour week so more of us would haveContinue reading “Weekend Fun: A Month of Activities”
I enjoy walking a labyrinth – there’s only one way to go and they’re flat. Okay, and then there’s the focus. Walk with my head down, be in the present, and ignore the distractions. Here are a few of my favorites in Sonoma County. The most interesting one is located off the Kortum trail justContinue reading “Labyrinth Walks – One Path”
My 100 Favorite Walkers #1 John Francis I read his book Planetwalker a couple of years ago. John Francis walked everywhere.

All over the world people are exploring abandoned, ignored or under-construction sites. Using teams, they infiltrate supposedly secure corporate and state sites. Mr. Garrett is an ethnographer, who wantedContinue reading “Explore Everything – Maybe”

On a perfect October day last weekend, Shone Farm had an open house. We visited several years ago and have been waiting to visit again.
And end up in your food. A couple of years ago I wrote a post It’s 10PM, Do You Know Where Your Trash Is?, after being distressed by the amount of plastics piled in Santa Rosa Creek. Included in the post are some references for more information and some ways to help. This blog postContinue reading “Plastic Seas Start in Your Creek”
