The week of shots from a distance - this one a rare night out past my bedtime with my sweetie. John Cale & many awesome guests doing Velvet Underground at BAM. So worth today's fatigue/mezcal hangover.

Highlights of the day - hugs from John Perkins and Achuar leader Domingo Paes and meeting Lynn & Bill Twist at the Pachamama Alliance luncheon. Meeting new kindred spirits at said luncheon. Watching someone feed sea gulls from their tenth floor window. The glorious sunset. Starting a fundraiser on Facebook for the Pachamama Alliance for my birthday (first 3 to donate get a friendship bracelet handmade in Ecuador). Seeing my sweet kiddo's school pictures.

The hateful, greedy, destructive leadership of the US do not represent those of us who actually give a big fat damn for the health and well being of Mother Earth and all of her children. We continue to stand up for those who are most affected by pollution, climate change, deforestation, environmental degradation, etc.

Sisters, stop what you are doing and listen to the wisdom of Pat McCabe. I won't spoil it for you, but I will say she has some amazing words about healing our deepest wounds, healing the planet, the divine feminine & masculine. There is no division. Oneness is our wholeness.

Drying Mullein in preparation for winter coughs, but also for dreamwork, for heart mending, for grief relief.
Gratitude to @sawmill_herbfarm for tending & harvesting and to @sacredwarrior7 for being the conduit! Check out her amazing multidimensional healing work @reclaimthewildwoman & @sacredwarrior7 💖 - love you, Sister!

Hawthorn is like a sweet sigh of relief, a deep breath that nourishes the heart & soul. A friend during grief, heartbreak & stress. A peaceful warrior full of protective thorns. When your heart is out of whack, she's got your back. Certainly an herbal ally for our times. 🌿💗🌿💗🌿💗🌿 We will see her in her many forms on the final Healing Plant Walk for this year with @minkabrooklyn in Prospect Park. Read more about Hawthorn in the profile link.

We are in deep, and it might feel like there's no way out. But that isn't true. It may still feel like an insurmountable task but I feel from deep down in my bones that we can shift this collective madness. I know you feel it too and I know you are feeling the pull toward sanity.
There is great wisdom in the Earth, in her cycles and in her creations. One of her greatest gifts is the plants, our healing allies. We grew up as humans with plants as our teachers, our nourishment, our medicine. One valuable ally is Motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca). As her name suggests she is heart medicine, physically and energetically. And she is so much more. Follow the link in profile to read more.
Stay tuned for more plant ally profiles to heal our hearts, coming soon! (Image via Wikimedia Commons, link in blog post)
