Anaya’s words on Outdoor Design
Earth’s heartbeat is full. Her resonance is in us. It is in
Everything we feel, everything we touch, everything we are.
There is a deep connection between Earth’s heartbeat and
Our own. We can reach it, touch it and be her heartbeat.
We can stand in it.
We want to regenerate Earth’s heartbeat, for it is our own.
As we release apathy and become caring,
Earth’s heartbeat becomes stronger, as does our own.
When we live in harmony with Earth’s heartbeat and awaken
Caring, our lives exist at a higher level.
New doors open.
As we establish harmony on our peronsal Land, it becomes
Our cherished sanctuary that
Ripples peace through our lives.

Anaya’s story on Business Design and Municipal green codes
“Several years ago I was engaged to design the frontage of a new business location. The manager liked greenery but was uncertain about the business expenditures municipal bylaws caused with enforced green codes.
I prepared the drawings and attached elevational sketches to show what the frontage would look like. The design met and did not exceed code, but focused on esthetics and specified plants that could survive, with a little help, the harsh conditions of the site. When the manager saw the final drawings, he abruptly stopped what he was doing. He looked at the drawings for a long time. His brow relaxed. He gently smiled and said, “It’s nice.”
To this day, he is very proud of the way the business looks and the way the investment has had positive effects on clients, staff morale, and on public relations and advertising.”
