    HIVE - MIND; a memoir ~ organic farming, sustenance and survival.

    in Spirituality

    HIVE - MIND, a memoir by Gabrielle Myers

    Hive-Mind recounts Gabrielle's experiences on a small organic farm in California's Sacramento Valley during the growing season of 2006, as she apprenticed with a female farmer who took her life as the season drew to a close. The memoir begins with Gabrielle's first day on the farm, right after she left her job at an internationally known farm-to-table restaurant, with the intention of taking a long break between cooking full-time and starting graduate school.

    Hive-Mind asks what reasons we give ourselves for our sustenance, while considering how this care of the self and our community can be maintained regardless of life’s challenges and simultaneously compromised through alcohol and drug addiction, romantic loss, and a loved one’s death. Farmer’s decision to take her life after a failed romance runs counter to my embrace of life after a brief affair that didn’t work out as she had hoped. The farm’s acres reflect the divergent answers they each came up with in reply to what they both felt as tragic loss.

    Gabrielle is an Associate Professor of English, writer, and chef living in the Sacramento Valley of California. For over a decade, she worked as a cook and chef for San Francisco Bay area restaurants and catering companies. During the growing season of 2006, she apprenticed under Laura Trent, farmer and owner of Tip Top Produce, an organic farm that specialized in supplying Bay Area farmers’ markets and fine-dining restaurants with heirloom vegetables. Gabrielle, an Associate Professor of English at San Joaquin Delta College, went to graduate school in her early thirties to earn an M.A. in English from the University of California at Davis and an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from Saint Mary’s College of California.

    Garbage Bag Suitcase: A MEMOIR (foster care awareness) with Shenandoah Chefalo

    in Family

    Garbage Bag Suitcase: A MEMOIR (foster care awareness) with Shenandoah Chefalo

    Shenandoah's dreams for a stable childhood were shattered: the money she earned working at the local grocery store was taken by her foster parents to "cover her expenses." When she was in the hospital for three weeks due to serious injuries from a car accident, no one came to visit her. She realized she was more alone than before.

    Despite her heartbreaking circumstances, Shenandoah overcame adversities and became part of the 3% of all foster care children who get into college, and the 1% who graduate. Despite becoming a successful businesswoman and having a daughter of her own, she still suffers the long-term effects of her neglected childhood. In "Garbage Bag Suitcase," she shares her story in hope of spurring immediate change that needs to take place within the system, and what we all can do to help these children.

    Shenandoah Chefalo is a graduate of Michigan State University, holding a Bachelor of Arts with a major in interdisciplinary studies in social science, a Core Essentials Graduate from Coach U, a Certified Law of Attraction Advanced Practitioner and a member of the Foster Leaders Movement. She is a sought after speaker on topics surrounding youth in foster care.

    Sports Palooza: "Tokyo" Rosenthal & His "A Fauxtographer's Yankee Stadium Memoir

    in Sports

    Welcome to another edition of Sports Palooza Radio! Thank you for stopping by. Today, we know that the start of spring training is just around the corner and soon it will be baseball season!  We thought it was a great time to talk to Arnie "Tokyo" Rosenthal and his amazing story and book "A Fauxtographer’s Yankee Stadium Memoir."

    So just who is Arnie “Tokyo” Rosenthal?  For eight consecutive Major League seasons, this Valley Stream, NY, native (now a resident of Chapel Hill, NC), who envisioned and dreamed of himself as a baseball media broadcaster, beat reporter and photographer, “schemed and tricked” his way into the House That Ruth Built with full access to the Stadium’s field, press box, dugouts, clubhouses and even top level complimentary seats in the stands.  Over that time period, he recorded very few actual player interviews and filed very few stories, but he and his attractive girlfriend/soon-to-be-wife took hundreds of photos of players, managers and coaches that have never been seen by anyone. That is until now.
