Joe Henry’s LIME CREEK: Kindness, Faith and Humanity

By Nancy Chuda, Founder and Editor-in-Chief and co-founder of Healthy Child Healthy World Set amidst the blinding snow storms and cold of Wyoming's high country, LIME CREEK is a Faulkneresque glimpse into the lives of a family of people committed to solidarity, simplicity, and a respect for life. The story centers around Spencer Davis and his sons. Henry captures the intimacy and connectedness of their harsh outer lives that draw them even closer together as they all bear witness to the eternal cycles of life and death; where the reveries of innocence trumpet the hard edges of experience.

Eco Art: Brad Miller Traverses the Elements in His New Exhibition at Edward Cella...

By Edward Cella, Owner of Edward Cella Art+Architecture How often are you struck by the intricately constructed beauty of nature? For Venice Beach based artist Brad Miller, that appreciation happens each day in his home and studio but was recent reinforced by an exhaustive excursion though the coastal waters and reefs surrounding Thailand and Myanmar. Upon returning, Miller embarked on the planning for debut exhibition at Edward Cella Art+Architecture in Los Angeles. Transforming the white box of the gallery into a laboratory to construct and present his insights into the fundamental mechanisms of existence, one comes to appreciate that Miller is a naturalist at heart and has built upon these universal relationships which have appeared in various contexts throughout his career.

WATCH: Bel Canto Pop!

By Amanda Nisenson, Opera Singer and LuxEco Advocate The night before I was born, my mother was reading an article about Beverly Sills, (May 25, 1929 – July 2, 2007) the famous opera singer who performed for huge audiences around the world. My Great Aunt used to brag about how she knew Beverly Sills growing up in Brooklyn, and how much she enjoyed being friends with “Bubbles,” as Ms. Sills was called then. The article continued to explain that this nickname was given to her because she was born with Bubbles in her mouth. The next day, June 17th was the day that I came into the world, and to my mother’s great surprise, I was born with Bubbles in my mouth. She could not believe the coincidence, and announced to the doctor that I would become a singer! Years later, shortly before Beverly Sills died, my mother had the great fortune to meet the legendary singer, and actually got the opportunity to ask in person, if she did indeed know my Great Aunt. After a questionable pause, Ms. Sills burst out laughing in recollection of this zany character from her childhood.

Trying on Zero Waste Fashion

By Jessica Borges, LuxEco Living Editorial Assistant Fashion design is an art, and just like other art forms such as writing, cooking, and painting, you need to scrap the first drafts and unruly pieces before producing your masterpiece. But with these scraps come a never-ending contribution to landfills and further pollution to our environment. This awareness has fueled designers in the fashion industry to attempt “zero waste fashion.”
