Liks for Ice Cream and an Active Minds talk about haunted places in Denver

        We began our day in Silo Park with  plans to only make that a quick coffee and snack break, but extended it because we were enjoying it so much. It’s a great little place, with a community vegetable garden (B: “well my vegetables garden is Safeway”) and ponds and signage to explain […]

Art Therapy is so fascinating. Studying pieces of art with a wonderful guide, like we did today, gets each of us to focus, relax,  contemplate, and share our observations. In the large piece made out of recyclable wine bottles, our guide asked us  – if we could, would we want to take it home? Jennifer […]
