Connecting our hearts and our ears through music and wellness

By Cen Cali Life Magazine, Jun 28, 2014, Categories: Health+Wellness, Arts+Entertainment, Today

Music is a key factor for learning and communication for all people, especially those with developmental disabilities or traumatic brain injury. Recently, this subject was brought to the forefront with the remarkable recovery process of former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Music was an integral part of her rehabilitation.

The Summer Balancing Act

By Cen Cali Life Magazine, Jun 26, 2014, Categories: Health+Wellness, Today

Summer is underway! For most kids, that means no school, water play to escape the heat and lots of free time. Although parents also look forward to vacations and extra time with the kids, some may be anxious about what to do with their children’s wide-open schedules. Fear not. There are many activities available that will leave kids feeling like they can enjoy a well-deserved break, while still stimulating the brain and body.

Home Sweet Slome’s Farmers’ Market

By Cen Cali Life Magazine, Jun 28, 2014, Categories: Food+Drink, Today

For visitors to understand what makes San Luis Obispo the country’s happiest place, they need only visit the Farmers’ Market. Every Thursday from 6-9, rain or shine, the Farmers’ Market takes place in the center of downtown SLO. Walk down Higuera Street between Osos and Nipomo streets and you’ll encounter a feast for the senses. Inhale the aroma of freshly baked pizza from Palazzo Giuseppe’s and the sweet scent of fresh strawberries.

Sip: Kuppa Joy

By Cen Cali Life Magazine, Jun 28, 2014, Categories: Food+Drink

After hearing nothing but raves about Kuppa Joy in Old Town Clovis, I had to check it out for myself. On a sunny Wednesday (then again, what day isn’t sunny in the Valley?), I stepped into the crowded (but not offensively so) coffee shop on Clovis Avenue and ordered my first cup of joy. Literally.

Book Review: Mark Geragos’ ‘Mistrial’

Mark Geragos is a criminal defense and civil attorney from Los Angeles. Well known for representing celebrities and clients on highly publicized cases, in 2004 he represented Scott Peterson, who was accused of killing his wife in Modesto.

Water-Wise Gardens

By Cen Cali Life Magazine, Jun 28, 2014, Categories: Arts+Entertainment, Today

People often associate a water-wise garden with cactus and succulents. While these can be attractive and intriguing, they are not the only drought-tolerant plants from which we can choose. The Clovis Botanical Garden is a demonstration garden of water-wise plants from the Mediterranean regions with climates similar to ours – hot, dry summers and cool, wet winters.

Reflections

By Cen Cali Life Magazine, Jul 01, 2014, Categories: Arts+Entertainment, Today

“True glory consists in doing what deserves to be written, in writing what deserves to be read, and in so living as to make the world happier and better for our living in it.” Pliny the Elder, who lived during 23-79 A.D — and often escapes recognition for another famous quote, “Home is where the heart is” – articulates perfectly what Central California Life magazine is all about.
