Grandchildren on your knee

Vera, Chuck and Dave"


Mindful Self Care: Tye Die...Tai Chi...


--Coincidentally, three of the greatest loves of my life, Tai Chi, Green Building and The Grateful Dead all embody elements of Integration, Synergy and Collaboration. It is through doing Tai Chi, practicing green building and playing Grateful Dead Music, that I weave my thread. And it will be so inspiring to hear how others are doing their weaving and how we can assist one another in this most important personal and collective mission of Sustainable Living, referred to here as The Golden Braid. As it is written in the Dead Song, Terrapin Station:


"I can't figure out

if it's the end or beginning,

but the Train's put its breaks on

and the whistle is screaming."
