"although healing brings a better life, it also threatens to permanently alter life as you’ve known it. your relationships, your position in the world, even your sense of identity may change. coping patterns that have served you for a lifetime will be called into question. when you make the commitment to heal, you risk losing much of what is familiar. as a result one part of you may want to heal while another resists change."

So, I had a dream a few nights ago. I was standing on a beach, rocky cliffs behind me, tide creeping in closer. I was waiting for it to move further out when I heard a voice say, “Go in.”

Then this arrived in the mail today.

I *think* I’m going to have some Silvery Checkerspot Butterflies. Was freaking out when I saw echinacea COVERED in tiny black things (eggs? caterpillar poop?) and turning brown. Then I looked closer and found these guys. #butterfly #caterpillar #insectID #gardening #oklahoma
