I was too many days away from the forest... had a wonderful forest bath today. #getoutside #listentotheforest #listentothetrees #bordercolliesofinstagram #vancouverislandlife #gratitudeeveryday
🎶I’ve looked at love from both sides now...🎶 #getoutside #listentotheforest #listentothetrees #gratitudeeveryday #vancouverislandlife
Sunny forest bathing after almost 5 hours of gelato work.... such pleasure... #bordercolliesofinstagram #vancouverislandlife #forestbathing #getoutside #listentothetrees #listentotheforest #gratitudeeveryday
A few gifts from the forest today... from a downed grand fir tips and bark from the young tree top for infusion, another bolete, and turkey tail... #vancouverislandlife #getoutside #listentotheforest #listentothetrees #listentothefungi #foragedfood #forestbathing #gratitudeeveryday
Amor Fati Nietzsche's idea, "loving your fate" --- acknowledging and accepting the conditions of your life exactly as they are, whatever they are --- because that is what you have. This is not to say your fate cannot be changed --- that's not what Nietzsche meant --- no, he was saying that this moment right now is your fate. Each moment of your life offers you an opportunity to respond more creatively, more intelligently, than the last moment. --R.

This colorful beauty caught my attention today. I have yet to find it in my books. #getoutside #listentotheforest #listentothetrees #listentothefungi #fungi #mushrooms #mycology #vancouverislandlife
Jellies are so fascinating. This one was among the biggest I have seen this fall. #getoutside #listentotheforest #listentothetrees #listentothefungi #jellytoothfungus #fungi #mushrooms #mycology #vancouverislandlife
At a few spots the sun broke through while I grazed a few winter Chanterelles. The was a blooming bouquet at the base of a tree... then the sun hit a lone ‘shroom atop a moss covered log. Taylor was watching over me, of course. #bordercolliesofinstagram #getoutside #forestbathing #listentotheforest #listentothetrees #listentothefungi #fungi #mushrooms #mycology #vancouverislandlife
Everyday is a fungi day in the forest at this time of year. The rains are bringing on so many beautiful ones. #fungi #mushrooms #mycology #getoutside #listentotheforest #listentothetrees #listentothefungi #vancouverislandlife #gratitudeeveryday
The sun broke out at Jordan River this morning and we had to stop to gawk. #bordercolliesofinstagram #vancouverislandlife #getoutside #listentothesea #listentotheforest #listentothetrees #gratutudeeveryday
There are times when I have to stop and get out my phone to record the fabulousness of fungi in the forest. #getoutside #listentotheforest #listentothetrees #listentothefungi #vancouverislandlife #fungi #mycology #mushrooms #gratitudeeveryday

When we journey into the wilderness we find we are alone but not alone. We are neither where we have been nor where we are going. There is danger and possibility, risk and promise. We leave seeking spiritual peace but are confronted by discoveries that we did not pursue, that may disturb or baffle us. We may choose to enter wilderness like the Hebrew slaves who followed Moses out of Egypt, to escape vintage, or like Henry David Thoreau, to "live deliberately." Once on our journey, our markers of time and space collapse, for this wilderness is not in space or time but is the boundless territory of the soul. #innerjourney #wildheart #wilderness #innerwork #gidinnature #naturematters #forestchurchyyc #listentotheforest #soul #naturessoul
There is an area I pass through between where I live & Mckenzie Bight where almost all of the arbutus trees have the most intriguing scars... #getoutside #listentothetrees #listentotheforest #vancouverislandlife
What a fabulous sunny Sunday stroll... the warm tone at this time of year is so beautiful. #vancouverislandlife #getoutside #listentotheforest #listentothetrees #listentothemountains #listentothesea #bordercolliesofinstagram #gratitudeeveryday
I think I just might be a deer whisperer. She didn't run, she actually walked towards me and posed for her picture. Nature awakens your soul. 10 miles is kinda a big deal too! #getoutdoors #feedyoursoul #findthebeauty #listentotheforest #talktodeer #loveyourlife #liveyourbestlife
This one.... the one I call the greeter... over 600 years she has gathered wisdom... and she is so patient with us. #vancouverislandlife #getoutside #listentotheforest #listentothetrees
The power of rushing water meeting the sea... this place... this bridge... I can’t find words. #getoutside #listentotheriver #listentothesea #listentotheforest #listentothetrees #gratitudeeveryday #vancouverislandlife
Taylor was as nervous as I was. The suspension bridge at Loss Creek is long and high above the creek.... it is a beautiful exciting place. #getoutside #listentotheforest #listentothetrees #listentothemountains #listentothesea #vancouverislandlife #gratitudeeveryday
🎶Keep me searchin’ for a spot of gold....🎶 I was concentrating on having hike today but could not help myself. #getoutside #listentothefungi #listentothetrees #listentotheforest #chanterelles #mushrooms #fungi #mycology #vancouverislandlife #gratitudeeveryday
Absence and presence are sisters. The opposite of presence is not absence, the opposite of presence is vacancy. Vacancy is a void, a space which is hungrily empty, whereas absence is a space of spatial emptiness, but there is a trail of connection toward the departed one, the lost one, the absent one. To feel absence is to feel connection with the one who has gone. There is still a huge affective involvement with the person. In exploring compassion and vacancy, vacancy is a sinister pain, because of its hunger, its emptiness. A form of vacancy that is prevalent in post-modern culture is indifference, the inability to imagine or show compassion to others who are in trouble. Absence is different. The feeling of absence can create an incredible feeling of compassion. #compassion #presence #absence #listentotheforest #forestchurchyyc #connection #community #emptiness #naturematters #consciousness
The sun is so low in the sky these days... and with the leaves down from the broad leaf maples, the light that gets into the forest is 😍 #getoutside #listentotheforest #listentothetrees #listentothemountains #bordercolliesofinstagram #vancouverislandlife #gratitudeforeveryday
The forest was all ears but the fairies were not yet in the elfin saddles... #vancouverislandlife #fungi #mushrooms #mycology #getoutside #listentotheforest #listentothetrees #listentothefungi #gratitudeeveryday
On the Monday that felt like Sunday... travels started with a drive out to Sooke Point... we drove the Marine Circle Route. Delighted that the Malahat construction is finally done! And then cooked s Aunday dinner on Monday. Grilled beef tenderloin with sautéed blue chanterelles, roasted butternut squash with a dusting of maple sugar, and mixed rice. #vancouverislandlife #gratitudeeveryday #bordercolliesofinstagram #getoutside #listentotheforest #listentothetrees #listentothemountains #listentothesea
Tree spirits, so many unique personalities! #beauty #natureheals #gooutside #treespirit #listentotheforest
This is why it takes so long to finish hiking. I have to stop and listen every time the forest talks to me. #cthikes #ctoutdoors #getoutsidect #listentotheforest #raggedmountain #adventureswiththeboys #ctwildlife
Taylor and I had a fine fungi day out there. The was frost on a couple of the bridges, and a lane closure where they are repairing the highway washout at Loss Creek. So many fungi out there.... #getoutside #listentotheforest #listentothetrees #listentothefungi #bordercolliesofinstagram
We finally got out for a walk... I needed to take a break from house cleaning before it got dark. Taylor eagerly led me down to leaf strewn way... #getoutside #listentotheforest #listentothetrees #listentothemountains #listentothesea #bordercolliesofinstagram
I was shocked to find these this morning. I thought of them as a spring mushroom. #getoutside #listentothefungi #listentothetrees #listentotheforest #vancouverislandlife #fungi #mushrooms #mycology
If you listen closely, you can hear the word of the Forest. *wind rustles, listens intensely* “Voteeee bitchhhhh”
"The root of suffering is the deprivation of love. Now in reality, there’s no such thing as the deprivation of love, but there is the deprivation of the capacity to experience the love that is never missing." — James Finley #love #everydaysacred #heartsinnature #hearts #love #naturematters #motherearth #gaia #natureasguide #divinefeminine #ecofeminism #natureasteacher #deepecology #deeplistening #soul #innerwork #listentotheforest #forestchurchyyc
This first one looked so perfectly fresh... and there are jelly mushrooms popping all over! #getoutside #listentotheforest #listentothetrees #listentothefungi #vancouverislandlife #mushrooms #mycology #fungi
The ghosts from Halloween are peeking out from under the masses of maple leaves that heavy rain and big wind brought down. It was sunny again today. It my home area it is still not back to normal. None of the regular streams are flowing yet. #getoutside #listentotheforest #listentothetrees #listentothefungi #listentothesea
