    Youre so cool! I dont suppose Ive read anything like this before. So nice to find somebody with some original thoughts on this subject. realy thank you for starting this up. this website is something that is needed on the web, someone with a little originality. useful job for bringing something new to the internet!

    • What a lovely thing to wake up to, thank you. I have studied all things Earth for probably a half century, especially ethnobotany, but many related fields. I believe that if we return to holistic thinking about ourselves in relationship to our Earth and begin to understand again that there exists no division between food, clothing, shelter, medicine and ritual we will remember how to live in a good way.
