Finding Ojai Columns

Finding Ojai is Lisa's personal mission to uncover the mysticism behind this quirky small town's charms.  Newcomers to Ojai will likely only hear whispers of its underground new age culture that embraces the unconventional.  No longer content to be on the fringes, Lisa endeavors to seek its inner circle.  She writes first-person accounts of quintessential Ojai adventures reflecting her own self-deprecating humorous style.  Written much like a food critic might review a restaurant, but instead of a restaurant her assignment might be a yoga class as seen through the eyes of an unwitting ingenue, who lacks flexibility and coordination!  Many may find the real Ojai elusive or even a bit intimidating; most Ojaians live here for years without truly experiencing what makes this eccentric little enclave so unique.  Lisa's columns blend discovered insider savvy with the amusing perspective of a skeptical novice to make these experiences entertaining and more approachable for the reader.
