Biomimicry and what nature has to teach us
Well said, Robyn.
Lovely start to my day. Thanks!
I am an Animist, so I deeply felt and appreciated your post. "An idea that suggests even the poison ivy has something important to say, if we just stop trying to kill everything long enough to listen." - you put into words what I have been trying to say to people, but failing. The world around us has so much to teach us, if we are just willing to stop and hear it, instead of ignoring it, or worse, destroy it. Many blessings.
I have also noticed the recently downed trees, especially by courthouse. If they were diseased, I hope they are quickly replaced. If it was the sidewalks, then fuck those people.
Robyn, I can't thank you enough, , I'm a yardner, and my occupation is with Seniors, both have touched my soul
Appreciate the thoughts. Hard for me realize lesson from the poison ivy except it is indestructible in my experience and I'm ashamed to say I've REALLY tried to kill it in my previous asparagus patch
A lovely piece. Thank you for writing it.
"That sometimes you might have to be cut down in order to come back strong."
Oh how I needed to read this today. Thanks!
Beautiful , Robin. This reinforces what I'm gleaning from reading Braiding Sweet grass: learning and collaborating with the beings who sustain us even as they inconvenience the occasional pedestrian
