Oh the Olive of Life
It was during my journey to Italy with Lisa Dahl to create the photography for her best selling book (to be) The Elixir or Life that I fell in love with the olive trees and everything OLIVE! The Tuscan countryside was rich with an abundance of these glorious live sculptures and groves. When I returned from Italy, I was on a quest to understand more about this beautiful fruit that has been with us since the beginning of time and it's not just the fruit that is so special; it's the way they touch our lives and our families and communities. Olive oil was referred to as the Elixir of God here on Earth and it is indeed a golden treasure for us to enjoy with all we hold dear.
