Placebo Effect

The body has an amazing ability to heal itself.  What we think and say to ourselves matters more than we know.  The placebo effect is real and scientifically proven.  It does come in a pill, but it is also available free of charge by just using the brain.


Weed is Just a Word

As a child, I loved blowing the seeds of a mature dandelion and watching them float in the sun like tiny white fairies.  Over time and with my parent’s obsession to have a pristine, weed-free lawn, I learned to quell my desire.  I credit my children for rekindling my love of dandelions.  Our front yard is as weed free as I can manage for the sake of our lawn-loving neighbors.  The backyard is left to grow dandelions for pure enjoyment and the fairies.
