Here’s my secret: There was no master plan. I didn’t visualize herb shops in two states, a couple of books, and a vibrant online community (online??! says ten-years-ago me, that’s crazy-pants!). The year destiny wrapped me ‘round her little finger and tugged my life...read more
Think of yourself as a seed, deep in the Earth's dark soil... What do you dream of becoming? Do you know your passion? Your form? The shape of your flower? The acorn knows all of this. Even though it will take a decade for it to mature beyond sapling and a hundred...read more
