I love you so much.

Even on the most ridiculously stressful, tiring, frugal, overwhelming and busy days, I love what I do with irrevocable passion. Every time I pour an elixir I can't help but think in my mind "I love you so much. I love you so much." There is just something of a deep story, fragrant dance, and sacred lineage that pulses through me when I make potions from the plants I've gathered. Thank you Spirit for letting me be a medicine woman. I'm humbled and honored. I hope I serve you well.

I suppose I could steal away this moment to say something profound about herbal medicine. So I'll say just this. Herbal medicine is an emotional and physiological imprint of plant wisdom upon one's being. To learn: spend time with plants. Feel them, hear them, smell them, taste them, draw them. Relate, argue, ask, believe.
Paint them, cook them, infuse them, plant them, drink them, dance them, breathe them.
