The clarity with which the Daoists explain the link between health, nature and wellbeing and the simplicity and joyfulness of these practices are for me a true wonder and ones from which we can all benefit. I have so enjoyed exploring some of these with my teacher @mimikuodeemer over the past few years. I can’t help but pause and reflect by water during winter and stop and seek a tree’s wisdom at any time. Reading Mimi’s book is a great pleasure. It’s a perfect way to explore how the seasons impact us even though many of us live in big cities, often disconnected from nature, and discover simple ways to bring fluid balance into our lives. The section I have quoted comes from the chapter on winter and water’s deep listening and stillness. #qigong#nature#seasons#mimikuodeemer#teacher#balance#winter#water#listening
Subtle signs of spring on a cold, drizzly PNW kinda day.
The morning was greeted by oversleeping by a few minutes, and crushing surge of anxiety hearing emergency sirens in the distance minutes after my kids left for school (all are okay; however there was a major accident on the highway that they very well could have witnessed had we been on time), and one of our calves meandering out of the pasture. I walked 12.5 acres of fence line to determine the source of the grounding and enjoyed the walk along the creek - now more of a swollen, raging river than the lazy waters of summer.
Although most of the woods are still silent and seemingly dormant, the alders are showing their first signs of life with their colorful stems and catkins.
I am ready and yet not quite for the seasons ahead.
Magical moments in Morocco. ✨
I was fully inspired by the people and their way of life. Fresh seasonal food and the most incredible array of medicinal herbs and spices!
I met up with a fellow Herbalist in Tangier, he taught me some new methods and techniques.
Black Cumin seeds crushed up in a small piece of cloth and then placed under / sniffed through both nostrils - Black Cumin can very quickly unblock your nasal passages and clear your airways (super potent but smells amazing!)
I shall definitely be returning to these beautiful lands and discovering more medicinal magic!
Who else has roamed the enchanting streets of Tangier?

Сегодня я впервыеее на подъёмнике оказалась одна 😭 Просто не успели зацепить человека который меня поднимал на себе🥵
Чувство максимально приближенное к тому ощущению, когда набираешь ванну и прям так с кайфом ногу полностью засовываешь, думаешь щааас я расслаблюсь, а там блядьнахуйебаная лава прямиком из ада 😖
И вот ты поднимаешься, подельники сатаны с обеих сторон трясут твои ноги и ловят канты, ты сопротивляешься и жуёшь заледеневшие на морозе волосы и воооот почти, вот-вот уже и ёбс, ты уже лежишь молишься чтоб бугель не расчленил тебя, а другие люди не прокляли всю твою семью🤭
Я люблю катаца
“Wise men say only fools rush in... But I can’t help falling in love with you.”
It has been a month since the show I hold so dear to me aired its final season. Voltron is the first show I have even been fully invested in and the show that introduced me to the first fandom I had ever been in. I joined this fandom a week and a half before season six aired and I binge watched the heck out of seasons 1-5. I remember laughing at the absurdity of Lance and Keith’s rivalry during the “contact that pod!” scene, and crying with Pidge and throwing the remote across the room because I thought Voltron killed off Matt. This show has done wonders to me. I have grown personally through this fandom-> from meeting new friends, to learning digital art, to finally developing my style; I owe a lot to Voltron and because of that, it only felt right to start off the year with my tribute to the one show that has given me inspiration, given me characters that feel real, friends that I never thought I would have the honour of being friends with, and overall experiences with the people of this fandom that I wouldn’t ever trade, not in a heartbeat. Words really can’t describe how much I appreciate the people who have supported me in the past year. I’ve already told my friends how grateful I am to have them in my life since this post does not do them justice but for you all out there, thank you and I love you, from the bottom of my heart. I treasure you all so much. ✨
I can’t and won’t stop falling in love with this fandom and this show, hence the song lyric. The art pieces, stories, and theories that fuel this fandom is what makes this show so beautiful alongside the animation and story telling (for the most part) of the team at dreamworks. I won’t stop working with the characters I’ve fallen so deeply in love with and I hope you all don’t either. So here, I would like to show you my favourite moments from every season, the moments that took my breath away or made me appreciate these wonderful characters even more. ✨
So, thank you. Thank you for supporting me, thank you for reading this far, and most importantly, thank you for accepting me into this fandom. I love you all. ✨🚀
