I read all kinds of books (one of my friends jokes that I will read anything that holds still long enough), but sci fi/fantasy is my favorite. I also love books on anthropology and archaeology and other sciences.
I read this and decided to apply some of the stuff just for kicks. Shortly after I hung crystals, by some odd coincidence or what have you, dragonflies started coming and a hummingbird nested in the climber rose. We still have our roses blooming like crazy in the middle of January!
