Are You Blue? Ten Things You Can Do to Help Heal
Our Oceans ~ Huffington Post

This rather dark, divine comedy of family and conflicting faiths uses humor to defuse dogma -- whether it is religious or environmental. Acclaimed novelist and nature writer, Peterson takes on human nature and what she calls a spiritual ecology that is as concerned with saving the earth as well as our own souls. She paints such a hilarious, loving portrait of each world that we will all want to be Left Behind. "

Just happiness in our home waters.
