So Shiny by mary elizabeth

The weather is so nice here in Fort Bragg right now I can’t stand it.  It’s sunny and bright and not windy – just lovely.  It’s been like this for, like, twenty four hours and already I can’t remember what a pain it was to defrost my car window for about a million mornings in [...]

The Coveted Golden Spoon by mary elizabeth

 Last Friday, Living Light participated in the Fort Bragg Food Bank’s first annual soup and chili cook off.  And guess what?  We won!!  Our Corn and Sweet Potato Chowder beat all others – quite the vegan victory, if you ask me.  We were up against some local heavy hitters, too.  I’m so proud of Joe [...]

Inside, Outside by mary elizabeth

Dr. Dwayne W. Dyer says, “The state of your life is nothing more than a reflection of your state of mind.”  Well fine.  I just hope he doesn’t pop over half an hour before we’re supposed to leave for school/work on any given morning.  My kids started school yesterday.  Another summer’s over.  Back to hectic [...]

Summer Roses by kristin

There’s nothing like early summer – my niece Stella’s favorite time of year. Here in California we’ve got lots of blooming plants already and my all time favorites are roses – might be because I hark from the City of Roses, Portland, Oregon. The ones in my yard (I moved last fall) have been neglected [...]

On the Road Again

I love living in the Northwest! Early this morning, as we left Fort Bragg on our road trip to Vancouver BC. Dan, Martine and I drove through majestic forests of old growth redwood trees. Funny how something can be in your backyard and you rarely take advantage of it. We go the the ocean nearly [...]

Wild World by mary elizabeth

When I lived in Oakland, California I used to make a conscious effort to connect to the part of the world on which I was living.  It was pretty paved over and who knew if those weeds under the overpass were indigenous or not.  The estuary was right across the freeway from my loft, but [...]
