THIS WEEK’S READ:
Some people are grateful all the time.
I’m not one of them.
I tend to be a striver, an achiever, a “what’s next?” kinda gal.
For me, gratitude has to be a ritual, otherwise it only happens on the rare occasion when something completely out of the ordinary whacks me over the head with the wonderfulness of this world.
So, as a Thanksgiving treat, I thought I’d share my super-easy gratitude practices (the ones I actually do.) read more…
It’s early spring, still cold enough for gloves. I’m trotting figure eights on a hot headed ex-racehorse. Eights are lulling, soothing even, and soon my breath is synced with his and time is slipping a bit sideways. Slowly, breath by breath, the separation between horse and human dissolves. This is my first experience of transcendence.
Herbiary: Shop & Book
I spent my 34th year in Ireland apprenticed to a traditional healer. We crafted medicine from roots & bark, leaves & petals… and also from words, stringing them into stories to mend the spirit.
When I returned to the States I opened a small apothecary which has grown into Herbiary.com, with stores in Philadelphia, PA and Asheville, NC.
This blog is where I share my stories. In August, 2018 it will be joined by my first book, An Illustrated Herbiary. This book is whimsical, gorgeous, and OMG yummy; I can’t wait to share it with you. Stay tuned!
