I had an incredible time at the Y.O.G.A. for Youth: Gala Fundraiser, which "I AM THE DREAM" campaign benefitted at-risk children throughout the United States. It was my first time visiting the Marrakesh House, and it was wonderful. The event had a great turnout and was attended by some amazing people; there was such a strong, loving energy there. The night was topped off with some delicious food, samples from various vendors, and several inspiring performances.

Heath insurance: in case of emergency

This really has nothing to do with the environment or veganism, but since I've been discussing it on Twitter and Facebook, and because others are interested, I thought I'd share.

The events in Haiti inspired me to consider what I would do in the case of a major accident. I am semi-prepared for an earthquake (I've got some supplies at home), but probably not as much as I should be. Since I am a freelance worker right now, I don't have health insurance, but that is no excuse. Although I am very healthy and don't really need to see a doctor, I should have insurance in the event of an emergency.

How the neti pot changed my life

Almost exactly 2 months ago I wrote a post about getting my allergies under control naturally. At the time I was excited to see an improvement with my allergy symptoms (running nose, itchy eyes, facial swelling), but I wasn't convinced it would last. I've had awful allergies for about 5 years and had never found a natural remedy...until now. My allergies have cleared up by about 95%, which is huge. And all it took was a twice a day routine with the neti pot: warm water and salt.
