Publisher’s Note August 2017


Summer Fresh

Fresh Foods, Fresh Skin Tones, Fresh Blooms of flowers

Summer fresh can be the mind, body and spirit getting a boost. Most of us get out more in the summer whether vacationing in our backyards or travelling to faraway destination.  The warmer weather with longer daylight hours are perfect excuses to feel alive. It’s also great times for hiking, hooking up with a friend, catching a musical in the park, and a baseball game; doing something new and fresh – from a new hair cut to taking up a new hobby.

A fresh look can bring on a positive change in attitude.  Like a smile, a positive attitude is very contagious; why not accompany it with a fresh coat of compassion not just towards ourselves but others as well, for our world is being rocked by many natural and manmade disasters already this year.

We have to deal with uncertainties in governments, food shortages and famine in some countries, terrorism rampage throughout, droves of people seeking refuge by land and sea and the sway towards wars are too real.

The strong will survive!  We can all survive if we do it together with a fresh outlook. Let’s make time to reach out and show compassion. Let’s help those who are less fortunate and displaced; while we look closely at the actions of our elected officials. Let’s make the difference this summer that we yearn for ourselves.

 Wishing YOU healthy knowledge!   Liz E. Philbert – Publisher
