    Breasts grow naturally during puberty and can change throughout the course of your life. They usually start developing when you’re between the ages of 8 and 13, but they can continue to grow into your early twenties and can change size and shape due to age, weight and pregnancy.[1] Although the size of breasts is mostly determined by your DNA, other factors, such as weight, muscle mass, and age, can affect their appearance. Although the best solution is to wait and give your breasts time to grow, you can also try a few different methods to enhance them naturally, including eating certain foods and doing particular exercises.

    This Step Home - Simple Guide to...

    Walking meditation has been practiced for centuries in many parts of the world. Some practices are strict and ritualized, others more free and easy. 
      
    In “This Step Home”, writing directly from his half-century of meditation practice, Jeff Falconer provides step-by-step  instruction in a simple and accessible style of walking meditation. The everyday act of walking, along with a relaxed awareness of one’s breath, one’s body in motion, and one’s surroundings, can quickly reward the mindful walker with deep calm, clarity and renewed harmony with the natural world. Walking meditation can be enjoyed in a single room, on a mountain trail, or on a busy city street. Cultivating this easy discipline can transform such common tasks as walking the aisles of a store, walking the halls at work, or standing in line at the bank. 
      
    Inspired at every turn of his meditative path to simplify and distill his practice down to the essentials, Falconer has developed a non-denominational approach, wherein no new beliefs need to be added and no existing beliefs shed. While many beneficial forms of meditation are connected to larger systems of religious or philosophical thought, it is Falconer’s experience that meditation can be quite satisfying with no such affiliations. 
      
    Short and sweet, this booklet can be read in a day, or opened at random to a page or paragraph for inspiration. It will fit easily into pocket, purse or backpack, and is an excellent companion for any ambulatory adventure. For both beginning and experienced meditators, or for folks who are merely curious and considering a practice of mindfulness, “This Step Home” will provide valuable insight and encouragement, in a friendly voice free of dogma or hierarchy. 
      
    “This Step Home” is intended to be a breath of fresh air, and it is.

    “This is a ‘PERFECT GAME’ for the reader.” —Lee Thomas, Former Major Leaguer and All Star, now Special Assistant to the General Manager of the Baltimore Orioles  
    
    Jim Smith spent forty years on ballfields and courts all over the Mid-Atlantic. He called blocks and charges, balls and strikes, assigned hundreds of officials, and enhanced the stature of sports officiating wherever he worked. Here he shares his decades of blessings and bruises, both real and metaphoric, in a humorous, fast-paced record of his umpiring life. For those on the periphery of baseball and for those with plenty of dust on their own cleats, these stories will make readers laugh and rethink the umpire’s role. Smith offers an inside look at the colorful characters that coach, umpire, and criticize in the world of baseball. Just sweep off the plate and find what’s beneath.
