The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Mushrooms 19


This is one of the most unusual looking specimens I have come across in my mushroom hunts.  I have only seen this once before and that was a couple years ago.  It known as Lion's Mane and it is edible.  Supposedly it improves your memory and mood but I think it too pretty to pick.  Most likely it is not available in local grocery store but you can buy a "kit" from health food stores and grow your own.

  5. Not familiar with this one though apparently it grows in Europe. My mood is OK but my memory could do with a little help now and again.
