Contemplating a world with plant medicine and those that use and abuse. Thinking about those who approach herbalism the same as western medicine. Which pill? Which plant? Scared for this beautiful ancient craft and the plants that support it if those that practice skip the time to make connection. If those that practice only learn textbook definitions from the internet. The Internet, our holy grail of information that spills forth a flow of chaos and theory. That does not show light. Not in the way you need to feel it like you do when you bask in the sun. Not in the way you feel it like you do with a plant in hand guided by a birdsong. Feeling protective. Where will we be heading folks? Where do the traditions and storytellers and keepers of knowledge get swept off to? Who is imitating? To take is to give back. Do you feel gratitude? What will you give back? .
