  • Aqua as far as the eye can see. This small pod of dolphins In the Turks and Caicos Islands are certainly enjoying their freedom.

  • Meet Patches, the bottlenose dolphin from Southern California. Although not seen on a regular basis, as his pod is always on the move, all of his reported sightings are in Southern California. 
Patches' uncommon color variations are the result of a condition called leucism. His color ranges from dark gray to light pink and white, making Patches very special and instantly recognizable among bottlenose dolphins.

His pod has about 50 members in it and are very playful. Patches shows up completely randomly so if you are out on a whale watching boat and see a pod of bottlenose dolphin, keep your eyes out for him and consider yourself very lucky if you see him.

  • This morning I work as a doula.
I hold space 
for a woman 
to be seen, and hold,
I listen to her story
as she swims among the traumas 
of her family.
It's a beautiful, shattering work 
to hold an emotional space like this.
This afternoon 
I walk alone 
at the riverside,
 I go to the water, 
there is a nice rock pool 
but the water is stagnant there.
Exactly as I am doing 
in my life right now,
I pull aways big heavy rocks 
that are blocking the water flow.
The water becomes muddy 
and dirty.
But it's necessary to do so, 
to see clearly again,
to eliminate the stagnant water, 
to create 
a new rock pool where we will gather.
It's good to pull actual heavy rocks 
and not only working on my heart and mind.
I even found and foraged wild tiny tomatoes there.

  • And into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul 🌳
•
Na ja, bewusst deswegen bin ich da gestern nicht hingegangen, aber genau DAS ist passiert.
Die Luft im Wald war so traumhaft gut. 
Es roch nach Nadeln, Rinde, Holz und feuchtem Laub 🍂, das Moos war so weich, die Sonne ☀️ hat zart durch die Bäume geglitzert und ich habe mich ganz verzaubert gefühlt ✨. Mich hätte es in diesem Märchenwald echt nicht gewundert, wenn plötzlich irgendwo die Wichtel aus einem Baumstamm gekrochen wären und wir zusammen mit Mäusen 🐭 und Eichhörnchen 🐿 getanzt hätten. 
Ja, ich weiß, meine blühende, kindliche Phantasie ☺️.
•
Diese Wald-Bilder tanzen hier jedenfalls ziemlich aus der Reihe, aber ich möchte Euch damit zeigen, dass wir hin und wieder auch mal etwas ganz anderes machen sollen. 
Ich habe ja auch erst wie immer überlegt „See oder Berge“ und dann ist es aber diese schöne kleine „Wanderung“ zur Ilkahöhe geworden, die Ihr auch in meinen Highlights findet.
•
Seit gestern weiß ich jedenfalls am Waldbaden 🍃 ist definitiv etwas dran, der Erholungswert war unvergleichlich gut und die so ganz anderen Eindrücke haben mir besonders viel Leichtigkeit und Freude geschenkt!
Also einfach mal was Neues tun und unbedingt mal wieder im Wald spazieren gehen 💚!

  • I feel like we’ve been visiting Narnia ✨
Our National Parks feel so magical! .
.
.
.
However, I feel like this needs to be said...many times we saw things that left me absolutely heartsick.
PLEASE respect nature. Stay on the trails...I know climbing on the giant fallen logs looks like fun, and I’m sure it is...but every time someone does that, it damages the abundant soil around the log, can damage habitats, and can crush plants that would otherwise be able to flourish. Just stay on the maintained trails, please. 
Don’t carve your names on nature...as my 7 year old says, “Nobody needs to know that you walked through a fallen tree” 🤣

Take only pictures, leave only footprints. Let’s do our best to preserve these natural lands for many more generations to come ☀️

  • Primele raze ale soarelui mângâiau obrazul caprei negre. Vântul băteau puternic, era o dimineață rece. Pe culmi, diminețile de toamnă s-au instalat, iar căldura de altă dată este o amintire, acum tremuri nițel de frig până să o iei la pas. Mergând agale și semi-adormit, am dat nas în nas cu acest individ, m-am apropiat de el și m-am ascuns în vegetație. M-a acceptat în jurul, ba chiar am stat vreo 15 minute, timp în care doar l-am privit fără să îl fotografiez. Ce sentimente autentice te cuprind, atât de simple, dar, în același timp, atât de îndepărtate și parcă uitate de timp. 
Pentru mine, momentele petrecut în sălbăticie îmi devin tot mai firești, un mod de a te conecta cu natura și de a te regăsi până la urmă. Datorez foarte multe acestor locuri, în ultimii doi ani m-au schimbat destul de mult, au sculptat în caracterul meu și au scos la iveală lucruri de care nu știam că sunt capabil. Sunt într-o continuă căutare și, probabil, o să tot fiu, dar întotdeauna voi aprecia momentele petrecute în natură și voi încerca să aduc de fiecare dată fragmente din acestea prin intermediul fotografiilor mele.

•This time of year is wet wet wet in the mornings! It’s a good thing June likes the water, because she is constantly getting soaked in the long grass and on hikes, #shortdogproblems.

  • It 1000% feels like a Monday. Our weekend was full of soccer, friends, a taekwondo tournament, shopping, Yahtzee, and laundry 🧺.

  • Rosehip syrup... swipe along for the recipe. I found this recipe on the internet years ago... I printed it out and forgot where from so I can’t credit it. We make this syrup every autumn. Today it extended the morning maths... estimating (and counting) the amount of hips, fractions and multiplications. M has been making rosehip syrup for 2/3 of her life 😄

the love of life.
the love of self.
the love of nurturing.
the love of giving.
the love of compassion.
the love from understanding.
the love of prayer.
the love of being seen.
the love of feeling heard.
the love of Light.
the love of truth.
the love of gentleness.

Do you have one?👨‍👩‍👧‍👧♥️

Exponentially disproportionate to anything else my children learn, it's my greatest desire to help them develop a high EQ. Kindness, empathy, gentleness. All of which is possible while still being all of the other wonderful characteristics my precious girls already are and will be. The world so desperately needs compassionate future generations.🌎
.
Early on, we filtered a lot of our corrections/redirections of unwanted behaviors through explanations that "Herrells are Helpers". Soon, I wanted some deeper conversations. Especially when the "why's" started becoming more frequent. 😉 .
I've been working on this piece for about a year, with a little extra motivation to finish it in the past couple weeks to use and reference in our daily homeschool rhythm. While this gift I created for my girls can't truly be appreciated by these little souls right now, I feel like I came pretty close to what I desired to represent our family and what I want our children to write on their hearts. It's simple and serves us now, but will help guide us into more complex studies and discussions as they grow. 🌱
.
Thanks for letting me share a little personal project with you! I'd love to hear any of your own family visions or representations in the comments or tag us in your stories!👇♥️
