Can you believe that this "nest" is actually a mushroom!? Well, it sure is! Let’s learn something: 👏

This species is aptly named "Bird`s Nest Fungus" and it`s quite a fascinating mushroom. Each of those "eggs" (scientifically known as "peridioles") is actually a capsule full of spores. When it rains, droplets splash into the "nest" and disturb the peridioles, ideally splashing them into the air. The peridioles of many species of bird nest fungi have a string attached to the end of them. When a peridiole is flung airborne, the string trails behind it and then sticks or coils itself around anything nearby that it comes in contact with.  In this way, the spores have a more auspicious chance of being dispersed. ✨💨

This mushroom doesn`t look terribly small, does it? Well, it`s actually quite little - on average a "nest" is typically measured at approximately 5-7mm in diameter! When I first spotted this fungus several years ago, I was shocked. Based on photos I`d seen, I had assumed they were much larger! 🍄📏

I saw sooo many of these "Milk-Drop Mycena" up in Mendocino County, CA a few weeks ago! They love redwoods (as do I!) and were everywhere. Such magical little touches of whimsy! They made me smile over and over again. 🌲

We are in the home stretch toward fifteen. January always feels like a month of deep reflection on the life of this sweet soul that I get to nurture and prepare for the world. The bittersweet notion that i return to time and time again, is that our days together are really quite brief. As he embarks on fifteen and we peruse the course catalog for his sophomore year of high school, as we talk about college and beyond, I know that the empty nest is looming and so are his grand adventures. My heart is permanently oscillating between the melancholy arrangement of absolute joy and deep sorrow. To have been given this gift of a son, to have spent years cultivating his roots, and to have witnessed the emergence of these wings that will help him embark on his many journeys, that is what makes my heart sing. The road ahead may be uncertain, and surely nothing is promised, but watching this boy head down his own path will be my greatest joy. 💚✨ ...

You’re seeing something pretty cool here! This is a phenomenon referred to as “guttation”. When a fungus has taken in too much moisture, it exudes the excess fluid in the form of droplets. While this looks like fresh rain or dew, it’s actually the fungus squeezing out extra liquid! I love finding guttating mushrooms! 🍄💦 ...

I shared my very last post on Friday with a caption addressing “Imposter Syndrome.” I never expected to receive such a response!
-
It’s sad that so many of us share in this experience – yet also very unifying.  What if we were all so open about these feelings?  Would that eliminate the issue altogether? 💬
-
It seems that artists especially struggle with this.  We constantly critique our work – often comparing it to that of others.  Even if we are reminded of it often, it is so easy to forget that each of us has something unique to offer.
-
While our ideas might not always be original, the way we bring them to life is.  No two of us, or our work, or our outlook on life, are the same.  Many the tales of Shakespeare, for example, represent his take on age-old stories; it was the way he brought his prose to life that immortalized them.  His voice made the difference – the teller over the tale.
-
You are doing the world a disservice by holding back your talents! 🤚
-
You are YOU and only you, and only you can be you.  This is obvious – and yet there is deep significance in it.  Everything that comes out of you is original – and none of it can be offered by anyone else.  Ditch intimidation for confidence in that.  Take comfort in it.  There are over 7.5 billion people in this world, but only YOU can bring your vision to life.
-
So do it.  Just do it!  Encourage that idea you have.  Start drafting it, nurture it, and recognize it as your own.  Do your best not to let fear discourage you.  There is one surefire way to let imposter syndrome ruin you, and that is to do nothing at all.  Your work need not be perfect, it just needs to be - and be in reflection of you. ✨

I do not know how I have not shared this photo yet! It’s got to be one of my favorites, it’s from our trip we took a couple months back. We stayed at our favorite dog friendly motel thebeachcombermotel which right out side of the motel room, past the inviting deck with the fire pits is this beach, our favorite beach. It doesn’t matter the time of year, it’s never disappointing and I’m so glad we got to go. The sunrise is always so breathtaking at the beach.
