The following excerpt is taken from one of our favorite new cookbooks, Full Moon Feast, by Jessica Prentice, written about the deep connection all people groups have with the cycle of seasons. We offer this as the introduction to our spring newsletter and hope that you will enjoy it and find it as inspiring as we did.

Sap Moon

Once again we shall
See the snow melt
Taste the flowering sap
Touch the budding seeds.
Smell the whitening flowers
Know the renewal of life.

        --From an Anishnabeg (Ojubway)Thanksgiving for Spring,
                    Translated from the Anishabeg

The Zen of You and Me
Author: Diane Musho Hamilton

The people who get under your skin the most can in fact be your greatest teachers. It’s not a matter of overlooking differences, as is often taught, but of regarding those difficult aspects of the relationship with curiosity and compassion—for those very differences offer a path to profound connection. Diane Hamilton’s practical, reality-based guide to living harmoniously with even your most irritating fellow humans—spouses, partners, colleagues, parents, children—shows that “getting along” is really a matter of discovering that our differences are nothing other than an expression of our even deeper shared unity.
