The branches, all fifteen of them, each maintain different levels of excitement for their lifetime achievement as pine needle ports. Some of these tree’s limbs stand high and tight […]

What about fur, in which we see not only hairs of varying colors adjacent to each other but also a different color on each individual hair from root to top? Or fire?

What I Say When I Talk to Myself

San Pedro is a cactus that grows indigenous to Peru, and its usage in ceremony dates back to over 3000 years ago. The mescaline contained in the flesh of the cactus creates an entheogenic experience that can be truly profound and healing to whoever consumes it.

What this was going to look like I wasn’t entirely too sure, but the gratitude, excitement, and awe I felt at the opportunity to drink this numinous plant was tremendous.
