It's wonderful to see how we can learn to design our physical structures from the marvelous designs of nature. Can we do the same on other levels? To live together in harmony like the plants of the prairie? To live with our roots in the ground, and our heads in the skies, like our brothers the trees? To live who we are, simply and authentically, like the eagle, the elk or the wolf? Nature is still our great teacher, if we would just open our eyes and ears and listen...

The collaboration continues! By popular demand we have expanded the variety of “Chocolatines” pairing. Chocolatines, an Illinois-based Japanese luxury chocolate shop, has been featured in the Oscars, MTV Video Music Awards, Grammy Awards, and the Golden Globes to name a few. The mouthwatering new flavors are -Black Sesame Nama (“raw”) Chocolate -Raspberry Nama (“raw”) Chocolate -Orange Caramel -Orange Peel -Rose -Sansho White Chocolate The chocolatier, Rieko Wada, has assisted us in creating a beautiful combination between Japanese whisky and the array of smooth flavors from each piece. We have flights available with our featured Japanese whiskies along with an option to purchase an individual “Chocolatines”. We’d love to see you soon, Murasaki Sake Lounge

Los peces "Los porqués de los niños sobre los peces Aquí tienes algunas de las preguntas que tu hijo puede hacerte sobre el mundo submarino y los peces: 1. ¿Por qué nadan los peces? En primer lugar, podemos decir que los peces fueron los primeros animales vertebrados que aparecieron hace millones de años. Su hábitat natural es el agua, donde pueden desplazarse, una especie de extremidades que les permite avanzar bajo el agua. 2. ¿Por qué respiran los peces bajo el agua? Una de las principales características de los peces es que pueden respirar bajo el agua. Esto se debe a que disponen de unos órganos especiales llamados branquias que guardan gran parecido a nuestros pulmones. Con las branquias pueden filtrar el oxígeno del agua para poder respirar. 3. ¿Por qué los peces se agrupan en bancos? Al igual que algunas especies de mamíferos se desplazan en manadas, los peces lo suelen hacer en grupos muy numerosos conocidos como bancos. De esta forma, los peces pueden desplazarse más rápido y al mismo tiempo se protegen de los depredadores. 4. ¿Por qué los peces duermen con los ojos abiertos? Se podría decir que los peces no duermen, más bien descansan. El hecho de que les veamos con los ojos abiertos se debe a que no necesitan cerrarlos como los mamíferos, porque al estar bajo el agua no tienen que proteger sus ojos de la desecación. 5. ¿Por qué los peces tienen escamas? Las escamas de los peces tienen varia funciones, una de ellas es para regular la cantidad de líquido que entra en su cuerpo y mantener una humedad constante. Pero además, otra de las funciones es para desplazarse más rápido por el agua, ya que las escamas le proporcionan una forma más aerodinámica."

Winter Wonderland 2017 - a wonderful and generous experience for all. Parent volunteers have filled the halls with a joyous spirit.

"I will never forget the conversation I had with a stranger at the Ethiopian Airport while waiting to board my 2:30am flight to Bangkok. He told me that “The best way to travel is with passion, compassion and humour” and that wherever in this world I venture, “may you find real joy”. A random encounter with a man whose name I didn’t even ask and whose face I can no longer remember. But his wise words will stay with me FOREVER. That is travel." Love this from our Teach in Thailand alum @kirstneethling!

Come see us! We have great neighbors, and there is some good looking food too! 11am to 4pm today.
