Mother Earth
I am made of dirt and grit and stars and river, skin, bone, leaf, whiskers and claws. I am a part of you, of this, nothing more or less. I am mycelium, petal, pistil and stamen. I am branch and hive and trunk and stone. I am what has been here and what is coming. I am energy and I am dust. I am wave and I am wonder. I am an impulse and an order. I am perfumed peonies and the single parasol tree in the African savannah. I am lavender, dandelion, daisy, dahlia, cosmos, chrysanthemum, pansy, bleeding heart and rose. I am all that has been named and unnamed, all that has been gathered and all that has been left alone. I am all your missing creatures, all the sweet birds never born. I am daughter. I am caretaker. I am fierce defender. I am griever. I am bandit. I am baby. I am supplicant. I am here now, Mother. I am yours. I am yours. I am yours.

I have been feeling very clearheaded lately and what I want to write about today is the sea. It contains so many colors. Silver at dawn, green at noon, dark blue in the evening. Sometimes it looks almost red. Or it will turn the color of old coins. Right now the shadows of clouds are dragging across it, and patches of sunlight are touching down everywhere. White strings of gulls drag over it like beads.

It is my favorite thing, I think, that I have ever seen. Sometimes I catch myself staring at it and forget my duties. It seems big enough to contain everything anyone could ever feel.

First note how the bud
has its season. How it
waits with a grace that
needs no words, no color.
So suddenly it changes
and unfolds freely,
nothing hinders such
expansion, nothing pulses
against its beauty
but oh how it beckons
more and more as we do
now, with minds blooming,
with the next phase
of scent set to lure
us onward into wholeness
again and again

I can't stop thinking about the research that came out last week about an 87 yr old man that unexpectedly died of a heart attack while he was getting an EEG recording of his brain activity. The only known recording of its kind thus far. The brain activity was associated with memory recall, which lead the doctors to hypothesize that in the moments just before we die, our life does actually flash before our eyes. It has me thinking about what my final movie reel will be. My most precious loved ones? Meeting my husband? The birth of my son? Flowers? The many beautiful places I've been in nature? Pets? Cheese? Whatever it is, I know it will be beautiful.

I'm not complaining (cuz I love where I live) so much as checking in with everyone else, but the Santa Anas are turning my eyes into sandpaper & my skin into parchment. Next time you see me in person, I will be dust. Wish the rain would visit us again. I miss it.
Floral Notes: Sunshine & citrus. All the prettiest protea & blooming branches are arriving at the flower market.
Monday Hawk Count: 7 so far today, in case anyone cares.
K love you Byeeee✌️

I saw 9 hawks today. All in different parts of the county. Usually I only see between 3-5 each day, but today was 9. One of them may have been a kestrel because it was small, but that's a lot, right?! I blew kisses to them all, as I always do & thanked the universe for the gift. It was a good day. ✨

Neighbor Mary brought me these turning & drying foliages. She told me I've changed the way she sees dead & dying plants & that she has a newfound appreciation for them. 😭 We love to flit about in her backyard & chirp excitedly about the flowers, plants, bugs, pottery & all the things.

Thank you for being here, living your unique & precious life.

Last night at bedtime, my son ranked his current top 5 favorite spoonerisms that my peri-menopause brain fog has gifted him. They never fail to make him laugh & I love that he ranked them. I know this is my karma for laughing at my own mother's spoonerisms when I was a teenager, (Sorry Mom!) but I'm happy I can still make him laugh, even if it is at my expense. In case you were curious:
1. Lone Pone
(me trying to say Lone Pine)
2. Line Pine
(me trying to say Lone Pine again)
3. S'mor-ezz
(s'mores)
4. We can solve all these pretzels (puzzles)
5. Something hilarious that he couldn't remember because he was too tired & I couldn't remember because ☁️🧠☁️

If you're not already following Heliotrope For Hospice, today is the day! Diane owns & operates this wonderful non-profit where she designs & delivers bedside arrangements for those in hospice care, here in San Diego. Some arrangements are donated from brides & grooms who have generously decided to donate their wedding blooms, after the wedding. Diane will deconstruct the original arrangements and repurpose the blooms, creating brand new flower arrangements for hospice patients. Other times, she uses monetary donations to go buy fresh flowers & makes them into these cheerful, vibrant bursts of love. Diane is one of the most generous people I've ever known & truly has a heart of gold. 💛☀️🌻

It's always the sunflowers I'm drawn to- simple conversations that run deep, long lasting in the world of flowers- good company to keep. Thankful for this week's sweet donation from Sara at Black Lotus Design 💛🌻🌞
Love is in the air this week! We've teamed up with IRC MAKE Projects and Black Lotus Design to bring you the perfect gift for your loved ones: hand-rolled chai-spiced chocolate truffles, a bottle of Stolpman Vineyards Love You Bunches 2019 Sangiovese, and a wildflower bouquet! Pre-orders are still available in ircmake.org/make-cafe and pick-ups will be this Saturday at MAKE Cafe 10am-1pm.
Sunflowers... this photo & quote, sent to me by Sara who I'm so fortunate to know & love. She supports Heliotrope for Hospice thru her biz Black Lotus Design, and emotional support thru delicious breakfast dates! On this Sunday before Thanksgiving, I'm thankful for her true friendship & love of flowers
