…along with letting go of the books and creativity (at least as I had always related to it) when my daughter was born, I was moved to shift all of that energy toward this new life, this new muse, this new responsibility! I found myself involved with a community of new moms who, like me, were focused on questions about diaper rashes and runny noses and immunity… I feel very fortunate that this period and this particular group of people introduced me to the world of plants. A world that I find enormously inspiring. I began learning about different plants in relation to my child and then my partner and myself. Now years later, I find myself with a beautiful herb garden and surrounded by bottles and jars and bundles and bags of tinctures and teas and remedies.
