George Alexander Aberle, who later changed his name to eden ahbez, was my great-grandmother’s cousin. Most widely known as the composer of Nature Boy, first made famous by Nat King Cole, he was a prolific composer, writer and thinker. He was also known as one of the original “Nature Boys” who espoused, among other things, clean living, proximity to nature, and an open mind.

I am thrilled to be part of an upcoming feature-length documentary entitled As the Wind: The Enchanted Life of Eden Ahbez, spearheaded by ahbez expert and writer Brian Chidester. Brian’s website can be found here, and additional writing on eden ahbez can be found here and here.
