Rosemary, Thyme and Lemon Water

This was a simple one but really refreshing. Thyme, Rosemary and Lemon juice. I let it sit for a few hours before I poured up. Picking just the right sprig and leaves to prune is such a satisfying example of mindfulness in motion. I think next time I’ll add lemon slices and some ginger for…

Twitch: Alternative Thoughts

I’ve been going back and forth on whether or not the topic was worth this much discussion when I’m still in the beginning of formulating my thoughts but I have some things and I wanted to start the process of compiling “solutions”.  I saw the vision with the Twitch Boycott (the 12 hour boycott that…
