"Summer is a period of luxurious growth. To be in harmony with the atmosphere of summer, awaken early in the morning and reach to the sun for nourishment to flourish as the gardens do. Work, play,travel, be joyful, and grow into selfless service. The bounty of the outside world enters and enlivens us."
-Paul Pitchford, Healing with Whole Foods
