This Blog in 2017

This is the first year I’ve put a garden to bed. Not surprising, as this is only the second year I’ve had a garden. When it comes to gardening I really don’t know what I’m doing, but (also not surprising) I’m going for it anyway. I don’t feel I must know how to do something perfectly before I actually do it—I’m more of a hands-on learner. I find I can’t actually grasp…

The Books I’ve Written

I’ve written numerous books (eight, at this point) and I’m often asked “Which book should I read first?” This question is difficult to answer because we’re all in a unique place physically, have individual foundations of knowledge, and have different reasons for reading.

Movement Matters: Movement and Eco-Friendly Clothes (and Why They’re the Same Thing, Really)

Movement Matters is a book about the role our personal movement plays in the world. That is, how much movement is required for our survival and how much of it have we outsourced to others? This post is part 2 in a series providing even more actionable items we can choose to take, personally, specific to different topics addressed in the book. I’ve never hidden my love of comfortable, stretchy workout clothes….

Movement Matters: 21 Ways To MOVE For Your Holiday Meal

Don’t freak out, y’all. I’m about to write a blog post. My first since earlier this year, mostly because I’ve been busy writing books I stated publicly I wouldn’t write. Regardless, I wrote them because I needed to, and now one of them, my most important writing so far, is ready. Movement Matters is a book of essays that weave the seemingly unrelated threads of exercise, food, sustainability, and human rights into…
