Freaks of Nature

I am embracing the term 'freak of nature' - isn't that what we all really are?!! Wouldn't life be so much easier if we realised their was nothing to change about ourselves, try to be, nothing to correct? In our strangeness is our beauty. This psychedelic beauty is a microscopic photograph of the reproductive structures of a fern taken by Igor Siwanowicz and winner in National Geographic photo competition. The beautiful FERN is the plant calling us to move our work and home into Sherbrooke Forest. I am so excited to learn from this plant and her medicine. Now if a plant can be this wild and colourful, couldn't our natural nature be just as strange?

“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it's true I'm here, and I'm just as strange as you.”
