for a bit more light
each day

AC: Sanctuary


she finds sanctuary
in the heart of her being

she finds sanctuary
in the quiet stance and strength of stones

she finds sanctuary
in the air all life breathes

she finds sanctuary
in all living beings

Fungi


this autumn it has rained
and 
poured
and sprinked

at the moment it is pouring rain!

such a great environment for mushrooms to fruit up 
through the crust of our earth

I adore finding them, seeing them, learning about them
and 
lately drawing and painting them


tonight it will freeze and that will stop most mushrooms from popping up. 
Mushroom season is coming to an end. 
~
I hope you enjoy my little mushrooms

Art Challenge: Winter Salon


deep in a California forest
land of moss and rain
there was a winter party going on
the fungi gathered 
to dance and chatter

one of them said: can you imagine living in a Montana forest
earth frozen and cloaked in snow
we could not fruit until spring


all the more reason to gather and celebrate life
~

winter Salon is our theme this week
offered by our lovely friend Stefanie

I did not know what it meant
I think it is a lovely idea to gather, visit, share and ponder
with one another

Thank you for being our host Stefanie!

Art Challenge


every day she listens to the birds
wind in the trees
fungi rising through the earth
watched the flowers  sway
for they are her teachers
they fill her mind with wisdom
and
heart with joy

~

this summer cousin Laura visited
we walked my woods and found interesting mushrooms
 
so here I am studying them
most my days are filled with some sort of schooling in nature
it brings me vitality

i wish all schooling would bring vitality to it's students!
~

So nice to have another Art challenge happening.
Thank you Ariane for hosting with our theme:
School
or 
Halloween

Golden Cap Mushroom


I spent the weekend wandering through 
rain soaked forests
seeking out mushrooms
with the fabulous Fungal Jungal People.
learning, finding fungi, laughing
Larry Evans is such a wonderful teacher!

Someone found a mushroom I had never seen
the golden cap, which is in this drawing for
#inktober



Woke up to home sweet home being cloaked in
Autumn snow!
