Sometimes, we need to hit the reset button. For the past 6 months or so, I've been feeling a big change coming into my life. But I had no sense of what it was. Not knowing what needed to change. Not knowing if it was a physical change like moving or a job shift or if it was something deep inside me that was changing.  The unknown is a VERY uncomfortable place for us humans.  This is the place where fear grows, where our imagination takes over and comes up with all sorts of horrific and painful possibilities.

Special Project

Greetings! I just thought I'd post a little update from the Grove.  :) I'm engaged in a special year-long blogging project over at earthgrl  called A Year in the Yard , where I'm weaving the story of my yard and our local wild areas as they change throughout 2015.  Blog posts here are on hold for a bit, but be sure to stroll through the other pages here on DandeLion Grove for some herbal wisdom and local happenings over the next few months. I hope you'll follow my adventure over at  earthgrl ! Love & Light, Sue
