I've come to terms with something important about myself. I am an outdoor person and I need to live according to the seasons. I know the rules of blogging state that you should blog regularly in order to keep an audience interested. I get that, I really do.
At the same time, I get who I am, and in the active outdoor season, I don't belong inside on the computer. I belong outdoors...teaching, growing, harvesting plants, learning, and being submerged in our natural world at its peak. (I would also argue that all humans should be outside at this time because we're hard-wired to our natural world).
So, I thought I'd share a little about what's going on out there and what I've been doing. I hope you'll take some time to get outside, drink in the sunshine, breathe in the fresh air, and appreciate the abundance that the summer brings...
|Mandala made with a friend at Cape Henlopen. We created it on the summer solstice in gratitude and love for all the water on earth which sustains all living creatures. We sent out our thanks and love to our planet and all beings upon it.|
|Seeds of Violet...so tiny! Edible, though these are not quite ripe yet.|
|Wildlife is active and abundant!|
|I've been introducing people to this amazing "weed" that is both food and medicine...Plantain. This is the best remedy I know for bee and other insect stings and bites.|
And a little gift for you - I wish for your day and week be filled with all the love and joy you can hold!
Love & Light,
