It’s Time For A Revolution – Science and Mysticism

It’s time for a revolution! Science does not need mysticism and mysticism does not need science; but man needs both”  -Fritof Capra Do we need both?

I Intend to Keep Holiday Happiness All Year Round

I have to say the holidays from Thanksgiving to New Year are my most favorite, but not just because of all the festivities. The family and food and wine and chocolate, and I love to give gifts. My mom is the most amazing seamstress and every year we create something for her to make. We give […]
