Health

Health is personal as well as public and political. There is a spectrum upon which people place themselves to consider that they are healthy, they eat healthy, they live in a healthy way. I will simply be writing what I believe to be health and a healthy way of living. I will provide links to statistics, suggestions, offers to check out research done.

One thing I will say here right up front, eat organic!!!!!! Pesticides, fungicides, herbicides, fertilizer made from petroleum are all poisons that rob the soil of its nutrients and tiny "animals" and bacteria that help the soil and the plants grow in a healthy way. Using compost, permaculture practices and natural methods all create sustainability on a farm. These practices also help the environment by keeping top soil where it is, sequestering carbon to cut down on greenhouse gases, retaining water because the soil is not as compacted. Please see the sidebar box "Bay Friendly Gardening" for more information. Even though this website is particular to the San Francisco Bay Area, it applies to any area as well.

Protecting People, Pets, Pollinators This was the first "new" quilt I made. It became the 1st quilt of my journey through cancer. I believe that when someone gets cancer, the first thing is to stop putting toxins into the body. Our immune systems have not been able to fight the cancer cells that we all have but healthy people's bodies naturally kill them off. We have gotten overloaded with toxins in our environment!

The Will To Live
The Will To Live

The name of this quilt shows my belief that this is the first important thing to get in touch with & fight for & from!! I think cancer is a huge thing to get over. So much fear grips us & those around us. These are some of the books and people I turned to, for help and inspiration. More is in the links to the right of this box. I hope to have a show of this healing journey through art which I took.

So happy to use the many gifts I have been given through the years. Shells from Maryland when I was in college, beads and pieces from necklaces and earrings. A necklace from friends in Peru depicting the sacred "philosophy" of the Incan cosmology. And to add this traditional quilt pattern unfortunately called "Courthouse Steps" perhaps I can rename it here as the steps of sacred buildings!!
