I’m planting myself in the garden
— Bill Fay, Garden Song
My artist friend Alexandra has been painting flowers! And – as synchronicity would have it – I’ve been writing about them: researching the folkloric, medicinal, and culinary uses for some local blogging projects; and making deeper, more meditative connections in my personal life.
Our combined efforts have become the seeds of a project to create our very own oracle.
We tend to look for magic far away, in remnants of ancient civilisations, in remote or inaccessible cultures, and in the occult writings of mystics and visionaries. Sometimes the journey is a necessary part of the magic. But sometimes we forget to see the very real power and enchantment all around us.
