Our hands full or not:
The same abundance.
Our eyes open or shut:
The same light.

Here is what I love about the brain:
How it remembers.
How it sews what soft it can

Clearing your spaces inside and out by Phoenix of Elder Mountain– I make my own “seasonal” smudge sticks in my work and for my clients healing sessions. As you know, the different Season will offer us so many different flowers, herbs, lavender, wild roses, blackberry leaves, pine branches, anything close to us, which is all of nature’s blessings given to us here on the land.

and so those cells get replaced every few days
Every few weeks, your outer layer of skin is completely renewed
Every four months you have a fresh army of red blood cells
A hundred million new cells are born every minute and a hundred million old cells are destroyed

Every 10 years, you’ve got a new skeleton
a special team of cells breaks down old bone
and another builds new bone
