    Messages From Nature

    My spouse and I enjoy all the nature in our backyard. We don’t have a grass lawn. Rather, we have trees of all sizes, wild weeds, wildflowers, and many other plants that do well in our area. We also manage to grow a few herbs and other edibles. The trees limit our sunlight, so it’s […]

  • The Rear View Mirror on Summer Solstice

    Owl totem came up two days ago in a reading my husband did for me during the beginning of our three-day solstice retreat. Today, the third and final day of our retreat, we headed to the beach for a walk in the energy of the sunrise, moonset, and full moon. I got into the car […]
