Chakra two, the sacral chakra, is the source of passionate emotions. It embodies our innate inner wildness.

Where this wilderness once was we construct strip malls, amusement parks and zoos, so someone else can sell back to us inferior imitations of our intended birthright.More...
The wilderness art museums of southern Utah's canyonlands offer the best of two worlds: the physical exhilaration of a great hike and the mental stimulation of meeting unusual works of art.

Even studying photographs after a visit, one's attention is dominated by imposing elements of the composition.More...
Spread out on my kitchen counter, a bowl, bag of bread flour, salt, glass of tepid water, and jar of pasta madre (sourdough starter), vie for space among cocktail glasses and half-empty food plates. I shout over the noise of conversation: "Pour in your madre, weigh out 400 grams of flour and 300 grams of water." Only a handful of people in the room gather close to watch my demonstration.

You stroll through the sliding glass doors and fumble for the grocery list at the bottom of your reusable bag. Immediately, you have the sense that something's different in this store. Friends told you that would be the case. You can't put a finger on it, but, yeah, something is definitely different here.More...
Alice Toler's mind is a deep-thought generator. Give her a shadow of an idea and within minutes a compelling, artistically lit reality hovers in 3-D. (I've noticed this skill in art director Polly Plummer Mottonen, too.) What began as a Facebook chat about alternative uses for trampolines last month became "Breaking News—an Attractive Nuisance: Turn off the tube and go clean out the gutters" in this issue.More...

Monday, May 20, marks the next exact Uranus/Pluto square—the third in a series of seven squares occurring between June 2012 and April 2015. From an astrological perspective, Uranus/Pluto contacts always signal periods of great change; they symbolize cycles of political and social upheaval and upset, revolutionary cycles that seem to activate both an individual as well as a collective desire for transformation. We've been in the matrix of this current cycle since spring 2012.
