Friday Bits and Bobs.

Thought I’d share a few links with you today that have been gathering around me. Things that have found me, rather than me finding them.

It’s often the things that seek me out, rather than me them where I find the deepest, truest magic, luvs. And it’s also often the medicine that arrives when and how it’s most needed…

This exquisite piece by gorgeous soul, Hilary Rain had me tearing up for all sorts of reasons – the beauty of it, the recognition, and the compassion.

The work of Ottawa-based Stephen Jenkinson and his Orphan Wisdom School is basically where it’s at for me. Although that’s possibly an understatement. Jenkinson’s work resonates strongly with me. There’s a talk (1 hour long) with him titled, “ancestry and misanthropy” here on For the Wild. But for an introduction to Jenkinson – who he is, and what he does – check out The Meaning of Death. None of it’s morbid in the least. I found it a beautiful home-coming, and without an ounce of New Age syrup. I promise.

These flower essences. Oh my. One Willow Apothecaries understand this healing wisdom well and deeply.

It’s Winter here today, (yes – despite the fact that December in Australia is usually Summer, but I say embrace the crazy!). Here’s a scrumptious recipe for Persian lentils and rice from The Local Rose. And another for Bealtaine Cottage Brownies. Both recipes are vegan, btw. The latter recipe is also accompanied by lovely pictures of a permaculture cottage garden. So, bonus.

These lovely and free printable labels for the Season. Once again my Northern Hemisphere aesthetic overrides images of Santa on the beach in sunglasses and…speedos.*

Wishing you all good cheer and lovely things for your weekend. Cheerio for now! xx

*Gah. Help us. It was never meant to be this way.
