How do we see ourselves and our relationship with the environment when we
can't see *reflections* of ourselves in the concrete buildings, sidewalks
and roads; in warped windows and dirty water?

check out the cancer wellness series. *define how you see* and experience
your health in your own words, pictures and truth.

in reflection,

“Our first commitment is to the health and well being of our customers and
staff and is inseparable from our commitments to the community, the
environment and promoting local business. People everywhere are becoming
more and more aware of health risks involved in mainstream North America's
diet. We believe that current dietary trends and methods of food production
and transportation - with all the pesticides, preservatives, processing
GMO's and fossil fuels this involves - are neither healthy nor sustainable.
By using locally grown organic produce we not only ensure the quality of the
food we serve is so far as this is possible, but we provide material support
for the local farmers who share our commitments to human health and the
environment.”  Lil MacPherson, owner Wooden Monkey restaurant**
