I have one of those boys. A child who draws morning, noon and night - at home or while camping!
He wakes up and draws and is often drawing when we tell him it truly is "time to turn out the light".
Maybe it was for that reason that we really enjoyed the biography The Boy Who Drew Birds: A Story of John James Audubon. Whereas our boy draws mostly nature fantastical creatures, his latest is a ninja weasel, John James Audubon drew lots and lots of... birds.
This book is a great historical story that's very well illustrated and written. I especially loved the textured, multi-medium and slightly whimsical art. We recommend it if you have naturalist/artists-in-residence as we do.

I'm impressed with the depth and scope of what's offered in the focused topics of herbs and essential oils. I'm impressed with the variety of teaching methods - audio, video and reading materials. And I'm super impressed with bonus offer.
One of my biggest struggles is that I feel the pace of life is not the pace at which I "should" be living. There is a knowing deep in my core that the state of the world, on all levels, is misaligned with its intended design and purpose; a disconnect between reality and what our hearts know to be true, right, lovely, and pure.
