Beauty and Being Hive Friendly

leaf, loves

beauty and beesI was placing a flat of freshly planted succulent cuttings on the greenhouse bench when this color caught me. I dashed for my Canon. Enthralled by the scintillating shades in this epiphylim bloom I was ready to click the button when a bee agreed and buzzed in for pollen. Bees are beauty builders. Bees feed us and sometimes bust up a picnic.

True: To make one pound of honey bees need to visit at least 1 million flowers and fly approximately 50,000 miles. The nectar collected is then evaporated by the wings of 50,000 to 70,000 worker bees that make up a hive at peak season. When the honey is ready only 18% of the original water remains; any more and it would ferment. Let that thought enter your awareness the next time you reach for a spoonful of honey and be in sweet awe.

True: Divine genius is illumined light years beyond our human imagination. bees, honey, garden When you plant, be brilliant and, plant bee friendly. Source plants from organic producers. Big box garden stores are selling “bee friendly” plants that have systemic pesticides, neonicotinoids, that are higly toxic and likely the cause of colony collapse. We are in this together. 

Without bees it’ll be bye bye beauty. color therapy Look closely soften your focus and you will experience all the colors of the chakras generously and wonderously radiating from this one bloom. From the red root to the violet crown and white light. Look long enough and you may even feel a shift in your own energy field. Feel blessed. You are a blessing.

A Visitor With a Timely Gift

Maybe you remember the old juicers that were a hassle to clean, wasted  nutrition in the form of discarded pulp and required pounds of produce for a few glasses of carrot juice. I bless my Vitamix everyday with gratitude.

We had a guest recently. He has the body-wide circulatory destructive disease diabetes. 34 million Americans have it and 57 million American have prediabetes. That shock inspired my research which led to cinnamon. Adding 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon daily over 40 days lowered fasting blood sugar up to 29%, decreased LDL 27% and up to a 30% reduction in triglycerides.

Mornings are spicier.

blue dog for my blog

Today I decided to begin a new blog. I’ve been writing over at for a couple of years. That’s my business blog. This is my personal blog. A space to move through time, place and crazy.

George Rodrigue’s career as an artist began with lush landscapes of his native Louisiana bayou. Anyone could have painted those. With a sudden shift and bouyant brushstroke the blue dog with an outlet for a nose appeared and became his beloved signature subject for the rest of his life.

Reflecting on my own future signature now.
