Knitting without fingers, living without limits.

Without. The word can mire you in a quicksand of sorrow. Or it can inspire you to obtain success. Canadian Jennifer Marquis chose the latter. She has lived and thrived without fingers her entire life. And she knits. “I have what is called a bi-lateral congenital hand defect, which in layman’s terms basically means: No fingers on either hand, born this way, not genetic,” explains Marquis. “The most common school of thought as to why I was born this way, was that my hands were embedded in my mothers uterus…

Trust the Universe: A view from the hill

Sometimes, quotes or sayings can help us redirect our thinking, or pull us out of a mind rut. And sometimes, a mixed-up quote is even better. The other day I went to a local drugstore to pick up a few things. The drugstore recently changed its reward card program, mistyping my email address into the new system.

Find your childlike spirit – dream your reality!

Last night’s soup swap was a great success. I marveled at the way the same basic ingredients could be presented in such unique ways. Fall and winter vegetables teamed up with lentils and beans in many dishes, but each had its own flavor and texture. A “golden” ladle was given to the soup voted as overall favorite. The winner was a cherry dumpling soup! We tend to think of soup as an appetizer; a beginning to dining or a hearty stew-like main course for lunches. So this soup (along with…
