JUST ONE: Coralroots

1. Spotted coralroot (Corallorhiza maculata). 2. A group of Spotted coralroots. Hidden in plain sight, modest and peculiar, demanding an effortful eye, distinct from their neighbors, oddly colored, without leaves, they appear irregularly – maybe this year, maybe next.

Who Turned Off The Life Switch?

My Life is not great, but it’s also not boring. Wildflowers, delicate and fragile, but they have the courage and strength to fight the strongest winds day and night.

The Sea Shell – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Photo: “The mystical is not how the world is, but that it is.” Ludwig Wittgenstein The Sea Shell The spiral, always the movement, beautiful premonition, the sum of before itself, the string that is this long, a labyrinth of mystical rhythm better than a minotaur’s maze, a way through the demise of certainty, healing […]
