I’m writing this on a break from an epic kitchen-pantry-and-refrigerator clean-out. It’s been a great deal more satisfying (and time-consuming) than I’d expected. But I was inspired. The beginning of August marks the Celtic holiday of Lughnasadh, the traditional beginning of the Harvest season (believe me, I cannot get excited about cleaning if not for ritual’s sake!)

Keep Your Cool: 5 Ayurvedic Tips for Beating the Heat

I realized recently that about this time every year, I start to wonder if I’m coming down with some kind of summer bug.

On Yoga, Punk Rock and Helping Each Other Along

My family and I recently traveled to San Diego, where my husband Andrew lived briefly between high school and college. I had visited as a kid, but had forgotten (or maybe had previously never really appreciated) how beautiful the place is: blue, blue ocean; fuschia bougainvillea creeping up white walls; fragrant citrus trees all over the place.
