2019 Heirloom Expo: Epiphany & the Singing Plants

As I mentioned in my post earlier this week, we had a great time at the Heirloom Expo in Santa Rosa, CA last week, with several memorable experiences. Today I’d like to share one that just blew my socks off (okay, I wasn’t actually wearing socks…) I’ve since recovered, but it was a powerful experience […]

Poetry Without Words

Today I wanted to do one final post related to the weekend at Drift Creek Camp. I found the creeping, clinging, crawling, hanging moss and lichen to be so awesome that I tried for quite some time to write a poem about it. But it never came out right. So here are some of the […]

Pet Peeves, or What Is That Whining Sound?

Okay, you can skip this if you want to, but a couple of things have happened this summer that really make me want to grind my teeth (I say want to, because thanks to my dentist I make a conscious effort to never even clench my teeth, despite my aversion to ever wanting to appear […]
