Abortion, cancer, depression
Time is Breath.
An Interview With George Leonard
Nothing in my unscientific judgement is more sickening or more dangerous to the human body and well-being than emotions unexpressed.
I recommend this book for botany lovers, natural food lovers, healers, travelers, conservationists, farmers and most kuzu haters. For those who hate, period, I recommend a diet of brown rice for 10 days with an occasional cup of kuzu root tea.
Footsteps. Coming from behind us, coming up on the back of the tent. They came steadily and quickly. One, then another, and a third. A twig snapped under the weight of one step. (How melodramatic, something in me thought.) Another step. They were heavy and man-like, not soft and meditated like those of a cat. Human steps. Stopping almost right on top of us.
Health: The Simple Truth
Why turn over control of our important bodily functions from an infinite inner wisdom that perfectly controls 25 quadrillion cells in every function every second of the day, to our educated intelligence that has a hard time remembering a telephone number?

Strong in flavor and bouquet!) most easily mingles with blood. Although quite expensive, B.V. Reserve is the best of this varietal, and is therefore suggested.
The Big Ship
The Great Eastern Was A Glorious Failure
