I have had many emails from Wild Blessings fans asking where my posts have disappeared to. The answer is FACEBOOK! In June of 2012, I reluctantly joined Facebook so that I could connect with my four sons who mostly communicate via FB. Then I found out that Facebook is addicting and easy. A lot easier than uploading photos in an organized fashion and writing coherent blog entries…like one click compared to 8-13 clicks…. So I took the path of least resistance and let my blog slide during the busy harvesting months but posted often on my FB wall.
My goal was to retrieve all these ‘albums’ during the Winter months when I had less to do. Well I’m the kinda gal that ALWAYS has something to do and that didn’t work out too well. So you can ‘friend’ me on Facebook and peruse my many wild albums if you want to catch up with Holly riding nature’s wave through the months.
2012 I taught many classes, gave a talk at the local library using Keynote for the first time, spoke to a Survival Preparedness group, taught twice at Cherokee Cove, hosted wild food feasts, adventured on Foraging Fridays, included a handful of wonderful & wild young apprentices to help with all the work around here, offered wild consults, made lots of powerful healing remedies from wild weeds, made forest fairies with the neighbor kids, had many tea parties… and spent lots of time with the plants studying their secrets and preparing them to consume a variety of fabulous ways…
Not in any particular order but here are some photos of my wild adventures since I got lost in Facebook. Enjoy!
The hours of foraging in all kinds of weather observing nature’s wave surge and roll and return to the earth with the seasons, filling empty baskets with His handiwork and generosity, cooking up wild concoctions, spreading ‘wild fires’ by teaching others, time alone with my collies roaming these hills have filled my soul with gratitude and has enriched my life. I feel as if I have been restored to the garden of Eden where not only am I surrounded by amazingness of creation but I can talk to the Maker and dance with Him as He reveals more of His green gifts full of wisdom and crafted in love. I have become a worshipper, not of the created but of the Creator!
John 1:1-5 “In the beginning was the Word (Jesus), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
