While living this aimless life I have let myself go. Yes, in all kinds of ways.
The delightful obsession of lichen happened in San Juan National Forest.
“Not related to any plant. Sometimes have moss in their names, but aren’t related to mosses. They don’t have roots for water, but do grow nutrients from photosynthesis. Lichens can be seen as being relatively self-contained miniature ecosystems, where the fungi, algae, or cyanobacteria have the potential to engage with other microorganisms in a functioning system that may evolve as an even more complex composite organism.”
Lichen, cacti, gold, meteorites, strange books …. can’t get enough of this journey. I keep finding new stuff. And new stuff about me as I keep letting go.
