Connecting to the Earth

Happy Spring! Today is Ostara, the Spring Equinox. This is the time when the Earth is tilted at the particular angle causing the length of day light and moon light to be equal (which also happens on the Fall Equinox). This is a special time of seed planting, counting our blessings and offering new intentions into the ideas we want to plant and nourish to fruition.

Harvesting Fall Medicine and Ink

Hey Folks! I'm so excited to be writing in the public sphere again. I have enjoyed writing since I was a wee lad and recently realized that there are a lot of things I'd like to talk more about. It seems everyone around me is doing amazing things that should be shared, so here it is - the first of many great things going on around us! The week before last I went to Taylors Riverside Farm on the Delaware river where I used to live. It's a beautiful organic farm and 140 acre wildlife refuge tucked away unknowingly on the edge...
