Communicating with nature
From the time I was a girl, I would talk to flowers. It was while pregnant with our daughter that I remembered how to hear them talking back. Then, after my father’s death, a period in which I felt a heightened sense of liminality, I began writing down the messages to share with people. Thanks to my own teachers and mentors, I believe, with a little guidance and intentional practice, we can all communicate and correspond with nature. And in doing so through written language, we can make more tangible the beauty and necessity of interconnection and interdependence and our own essential place in nature. The quickest way to peace I know is to remember, in this way, who we really are.
