The mythic Greek Sphinx—part lion, woman, and eagle—has endured erosion for five thousand years. She is a symbol of wisdom and mystery and my personal symbol of an invisible, toxic plague that continues to seep into Mother Earth. In ancient Greece, she was a symbol of an enigmatic death demon. If no traveler could answer her riddle, he or she was strangled. Today she represents civilization’s pollution time bomb that Mother Earth may soon be unable to defuse. In Neolithic times (Stone Age), the first humans painted with ochre earth and animal blood on cave walls to capture the animal’s spirit, mana. The tribe’s survival depended on the hunter’s kill. Mother Earth was revered. She nourished man, beast, and spirit. Through ritual offerings, humans created the necessary structure to reduce chaos and allowed them to survive and flourish. One Green Thumb and Nine Sticky Fingers is both a serious and humorous guide that highlights some of the ancient sacred rituals and cycles and will inspire both novice and expert gardeners of today. Natural cycles are the spine and theme of One Green Thumb. This book reminds my readers that to survive, modern man must live in balance with plants and animals. This book will inspire individuals and families who want to learn how to understand and grow organic vegetables and flowers, enjoy the protection and privacy of trees, and promote a more balanced lifestyle for themselves and humanity. Mother Nature’s rhythmic cycles are signposts that guide the reader through mankind’s eons of trial and error with her gifts: the ability to recognize wild weeds as edible herbs as well as to plant and harvest healthy organic plants. The reader learns here to follow the simplest rules of horticulture to maintain humans’, animals’, and insects’ life cycle integrity. We can learn to re-educate ourselves to respect all creatures right to life without poisoning ourselves with toxic chemicals. With inspiration and education, today’s gardeners will contribute toward a more harmonious and productive future environment for humanity.

Mutability blooms in the Florida Keys after the Red War and the genie boxes. King Pelicans with the brains of scientists and a single human hand in place of one webbed foot rule the ruins of half-drowned Miami. Slavers roam the deep waters offshore, taking captives to feed the voracious Kudzu Army and the human aqueduct bearing fresh water from Lake Okeechobee. On the last stretch of the Overseas Highway still standing, an albino seeress slowly becomes her name: White Flamingo. "You," she says. "You will reach for the sun while staying rooted to the ground. But I fear your shadow will be much too long." Transformed by his father's genie box in the late days of the Red War, Leaf has lived for decades or centuries alone in a collapsing Victorian house on a desolate sandy key, misunderstanding time, feeding on sunlight and dew. When at last he meets a boy like-but so unlike!-himself, Leaf understands he has met destiny and sets out on a long, strange journey. A post-apocalyptic, psychoactive, polymorphous-perverse pastorale, Green Thumb will startle you with its utter strangeness and break your heart with its fragile beauty.
