About Gatoraceae


Every woman has a story to tell. Every woman should write a book/blog.

Purpose for this blog: To inspire others to become better nature stewards by increasing their awareness and appreciation of the beauty of nature. We would not survive if it were not for our  relationship with the natural world.  Our economy and survival depends on plants and animals.  We MUST respect them.

Included will be an occasional rant, quote, life observation and a few too many opinions. Gatoraceae lives in a community east of San Francisco Bay Area in California.
