Why Walnuts?

"I grew up in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, and we visited my grandparents often, just a short drive down the hills. In their backyard stood a large walnut tree, with a long chain swing hanging from it. I spent countless hours in that swing, often with Grandpa pushing me. We talked, laughed, and thoroughly enjoyed each others' company. Much of the wisdom Grandpa shared with me has become the walnuts of my life, the things I hold most important. Family, love, honesty, balance, and perseverance, to name a few. It is with much love and warm memories that I derive the foundation of my talks, workshops, and courses from Grandpa and his walnut tree."
