Celebrate life! Like I’m celebrating this tree!!! 😁😂🎉
Over 2000 years old stand the Redwoods and this wasn’t even the biggest by far! Amazing to think these great great great x infinity grandfathers have stood silently reaching for the sky through some of mankind’s most significant experiences: the discovery of America, the Ming Dynasty, wildfires and floods.
As we flit through our days full of travel, work, Instagram posts, life hacks and “top ten” Buzzfeed lists, let’s not forget the value of standing still, holding space and honouring silence and learning from the often unspoken wisdom of our elders...
No harm in a little nature worship!
Women Who Run with the Wolves - .
“The feral woman is a woman making her way back. She is learning to wake up, pay attention, stop being naive, uninformed. She takes her life on her own hands. To re-learn the deep feminine instincts, it is vital to see how they were decommissioned to begin with. •
We cannot control who brings us into this world. We cannot influence the fluency with which they raise us; we cannot force the culture to instantly become hospitable. •
The real miracle of individuation and reclamation of Wild Woman is that we all begin the process before we are ready, before we are strong enough, before we know enough; we begin a dialogue with thoughts and feelings that both tickle and thunder within us. We respond before we know how to speak the language, before we know all the answers, and before we know exactly to whom we are speaking.
But like the wolf mother teaching her pups to hunt and take care, this is the way Wild Woman wells up through us. We begin to speak in her voice, taking on her vision and her values. She teaches us to send out the message of our return to those who are like us. •
“He who cannot howl, will not find his pack” •
If you want to re-summon Wild Woman, refuse to be captured. With instincts sharpened for balance- jump anywhere you like, howl at will, take what there is, find out all about it, let your eyes show your feelings, look into everything, see what you can see. Dance in red shoes, but make sure they’re the ones you’ve made by hand. I can promise that you will become one vital woman.”

I can’t get over how massive the redwood trees are. They are amazing and beautiful and take up all the attention. They got me to thinking how great our God is. He created these, and allowed them to last so long that I got to see them. They say that some of the redwoods are a few thousand years old. This blows me away.
