Nature, Body and Place
Beautiful - loving reading your words and musings!!! Your patch of land is what so many dream of, and of course it doesn’t come without its challenges. I love feeling all the different aspects of you… nature worshipper all the way through to badass mama bear ready to take on a coyote to save the chickens I live by the river thames amongst much green and nature, and even though it’s not my home the river connects all the way back to my home county… it’s a powerful feminine force in my life and it’s helping me accept all seasons, the peaceful silence at midwinter, the buzzy, seed-filled, hay fever inducing air at summer. Sending love from my river to your ranch! Cici xxx
You're on a roll! There's so much to explore here: the elements, the seasons, the physical (senses) and the subtle (intuition).
So glad you’re on substack now. I prefer reading than being social media. And it’s a good reminder to dig out your book that I read a few years ago already.
Would you ever consider writing about rooting yourself abroad and still being connected to your Austrian ancestors, rituals and routines? what you adopter and changed over the years? I’m fascinated by and explore this topic currently myself. Love how deeply personal but also uniquely human it is to search for what holds us, connects us, and roots.
