Wild mushrooms are one of my biggest passions. Ever since I can remember, I had an affinity for mushrooms. My first memories are with my father and me searching for mushrooms in the park near our house. I remember perfectly my feet getting wet from walking through the high grass, the smell of damp earth, the coolness and freshness of the air and the immense joy I felt every time I found a mushroom.
Some things can be so profound when you are little that it is impossible ever to forget them. Over the years, I have often come across wild mushrooms, and the contexts were as diverse as they are magical. I will write in a future blog post some of my magic moments and discoveries.
I and these little beings have a long history together. So I can say that until now, mushrooms are my friends, my healers, my guides and my biggest teachers. Besides learning so much from them, I discovered in my researches how powerful and vital are for us, thus the planet (see my blog post “Mushrooms can save our planet”).
Year after year, I get more and more mesmerised by the powers and properties I discover in these little creatures. Their beauty, fragility and delicacy inspired me in so many ways over the years that I can’t even describe. Our latest interaction was a few days ago when I went with Christian and Arun to the forest to take a walk, and we ended up with a basket with wild mushrooms and lots of pictures.
Words can never describe precisely all that a picture captures, so I will better let you see and enjoy.
I hope you enjoyed this trip through the Mushroom Kingdom. If you think someone else will enjoy these pictures, please, feel free to share this post.
Remember to love yourself.
