    Culinary Wreath-making Class at Pennings Farm

    Dena April 18, 2018

    A couples of weeks ago, I attended a culinary wreath-making workshop at one of my favorite local farms, Pennings. You can check out some of my earlier posts from our Pennings visits here and here; and a trip to the Pennings Orchard when Roman was just a little baby, here. As you can tell, it’s one of my favorite places in the world. Back to the workshop, I was nervous…

    Dena March 12, 2017

My greatest travel adventures happened when I was alone–flying across the country to Seattle when I was in college; studying abroad in Kenya; and spending a week alone in Paris.

    Nature loves courage.

    Dena July 9, 2014

    “Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is what all these teachers and philosophers who really counted, who really touched the alchemical gold, this is what they understood. This is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. This…
