This blog started as letters to my daughter to chronicle our family's hands-on journey to reduce our ecological impact. Through conversations, compost, fabric, and small baby steps, these letters reflect our evolution into something more healthy, local, aware, and community-centered.

My children and I have joyously prepared talisman for several firewalks. We have not attended the last two due to our stomach flu and state fire restrictions. Now my children and I each have two talisman that haven't yet been burned. They continue to grow in power as they rest in our prayer room, next to me as I type. I love our talisman tree, as we've come to call it. It is full of masks, ladybug fabric, colorful quilting strips, and prayer ties filled with tobacco, corn meal, and many prayers. My intention with the last talisman was to release my resistances and to bring in laughter. I found myself laughing as I created these prayer ties and still find the answers to my prayers coming in daily. Liam intended to bring in stars and Hannah chose to manifest friendship. I give such thanks for the opportunity to set intentions with my children and to release them to the divine when the time is right. Blessings abound!
