Inktober No. 19 - "Cloud" - #Inktober has taught me that I really love using nearly dry brush pens. There's something very liberating about trying to mash the last bits of ink out of the brush and seeing what randomly comes out.

NEW MOON MEDICINE OCT.2017
Falling Leaves Moon, White Frost on Grass & Ground Moon, Joins Both Sides Moon, Striped Gopher Looks Back Moon, Moon When the Water Begins to Freeze on the Edge of Streams, Starting To Freeze Moon, The Moons the Birds Fly South, Harvest Moon, Big Chestnut Moon, Rutting Moon, Big Moon, Big Wind Moon, and Her multitude of magnificence as she is known among many cultures has once again returned to gift us another layer of New Moon Medicine.
A time to set intentions and nourish the gift of transformation and growth towards ripening into the Full Moon and beyond, New Moon Medicine includes a custom-made Essence combination (of flower, gemstone, experiential, or planetary possibilities) and a dried herbal tea blend created to support us in mind, body, and spirit as we move through the dynamics specific to each moon.
Essence: Dogbane Flower, Nicker Nut , Adventurine & Carnelian Gemstones
Tea: Elderberry, American Skullcap, Mullien, Holy Basil
I am reminded that in Chinese Traditional Medicine, we are currently moving through the Season of Metal in which the energetics of the Lungs (grief) and Colon (waste/detoxification) predominate. A natural time to turn inward, process and move through the grief and other energies of the year that served us well but are no longer needed for the time of transformation ahead. Just as the garden soil requires the compost to be turned or tilled in preparation towards replanted, so it is as well with our energetic and physical bodies. As we release, much space is created and needed as this is a great time of manifesting the next planting of experience as we continually shift towards a more authentic expression of our natural and beautiful selves.
Dogbane: Dogbane helps us access the courage to follow our instincts, which is vital to growth and change. This is the essence to support self-confidence.

This essences get to those ‘hard to ....MORE AT: www.mothers-garden.com/writings
Communal Levitation Housing Prototype by Hither Yon, 2014
Solid-state physicists have finally created room-temperature superconductors in the laboratory and have sparked a second industrial revolution. The new superconductors make it physically and economically feasible to create powerful magnetic fields across large volumes, creating the context for large-scale levitation. While the Meissner effect allows levitation capabilities in magnetic materials, the possibility of levitation is not restricted to metals, as nonmagnetic materials called paramagnets and diamagnets acquire magnetic properties in the presence of an external magnetic field. Since water is a diamagnet, and all living things are made of water, humans are given the power of levitation in the presence of a magnetic field over 100,000 times stronger than the Earth’s magnetic field.
The new discovery of room-temperature superconductors has essentially undone the effects of gravity within confined spaces. The fields of architecture and structural engineering are suddenly given the option and responsibility of creating weightless structures, constantly moveable without the constraints of gravity. Architects begin by designing a communal living prototype that could exist within a 50x50 meter cube, the current limits of the newly invented superconductors. No longer restricted to the ground plane, the space is characterized by various geometrical planes floating in midair. Inhabitants are suddenly able to use walls and ceilings in ways impossible under the limitations of gravity. The structural framework allows endless rearrangement. Floating above the ground, materials no longer require fixed connection points. The meaning of an arch is lost in such a space. Walls no longer hold up the ceiling, they act only as a means for distinguishing between public and private areas. Vegetation is contained within floating garden units, populating the volume like air bubbles emerging underwater. A building without gravity is a building in constant flux.
Muchas gracias a todxs lxs que estáis haciendo pedidos, ¡hoy más que nunca! Este lunes recopilaré todas las ganancias y compraré medicamentos y diferentes cosas necesarias para curar a todos esos animales víctimas del terrorismo medioambiental. ¡Gracias!
One more week until @strangerthingstv is back on!!! Can’t wait to see @milliebobbybrown in action again as eleven! What a talented and beautiful young actress. On another note, Anyone here else finished the strangerthings game? There’s a secret clip after you collect all 8 tapes! Game was incredibly addicting, so give it a try if you haven’t already!
