Feng Shui and Balance – Janet Mitsui Brown

Feng Shui and Balance – Janet Mitsui Brown

Very simply feng shui balances one’s life – and with this balance comes mindful precision & intelligibility – perhaps acceptance of destiny, the effects of good karma, improved luck, and serendipity – good fortune. But what does really mean? Feng Shui’s roots are in the I Ching, the book of changes, the guide to life’s turning points that has survived and educated for thousands [...]

They broke into two teams working opposite sides [...]

The Living History Project (a Turnabout in Two Parts) by Sandra Coopersmith

New 7-Eleven Store Approved by Planning Commission – Sean Fregoso

An unhappy group of Culver City residents left the Planning Commission last night, with another 7-Eleven store in the pipeline, despite their objections. A quick stroll down Sepulveda can quickly remind one how far Culver City has come. As if the area surrounding City Hall and The Culver Hotel isn't impressive enough, this strip of Sepulveda has been notably improved in recent years. When you [...]
