Empowerment and the iPod Generation

I was sitting in an old truck with my friend’s daughter. Old enough there was no power steering or locks and only one channel on the radio that we were lucky to get….

We were listening to “Another one bites the dust” by Queen on the radio.

At the end of the song a different song by a different artist comes on, the little girl looks at me confused and says, “Let’s listen to the Queen song again.”  I said, “this is the radio. We cannot change the song like that, we listen to whatever they play…”

She looked at me confused and insisted I could change the song.

I realized that she has never not been able to select a song if she wants to.  To her media is not a passive thing that you follow a station for.  She never had to wait to record it, or go through a group of songs to get the one song she wants.  To her media is interactive and empowering.  You choose what you want to listen to, when you want to listen to it.

I paused for a moment at what that can mean for a generation of people.

What if choice and expectation to be able to choice is paired with graciousness, respect and generosity?

The millennials have a strong advantage to be at the helm of a world they want to create. Rock on!

A Big & Beautiful Radish Baby

We found an enormous radish at the Local Public Market 


I tried to get a picture to show the radish was almost the size of a 5 year olds head!

Maya at Maya’s Farm, where we found the radish, suggested she flip the root around and hold it like a baby – Genius!


It became the cutest little baby…

A lovable bundle of joy…


Until we took it home….

It became a Delicious sautéed side!

RECIPE: “Home Fry” Local Radish & Greens:

Wash & chop the radish & leaves

& place them in separate piles.

Then heat the pan, add oil & salt.

When the pan is hot, place the chopped radish pieces in.

Sauté the pieces like home fries,

until they were getting golden or crispy.

Remove the radish pieces & sauté the radish greens with a little bit of salt & water.  

When the greens are soft & tender, but not over cooked, place them on a dish with the “home fry” radishes on top – Ready to Eat – Delicious!

Happy Cooking!

“Plant Your Seeds.  Protect Your Gardens.  Protect Your Whole Body.”

Today the little one in our lives shared a little insight.

We were creating a flyer.  I asked her, “What would you like to tell people?”

She said: “Plant your seeds, Protect your gardens, Protect your whole body.”

She paused for a moment… and asked me, “Did you write all that down?”

I smiled and said, “Yes.”
