The Enchanted Bog

When I do a retreat, I am totally taking you guys here.  

We visited the shoreline bog just outside of Ucluelet yesterday.  It’s one of my favourite places.  These trees are incredibly old, which is why they’re so twisted.  They only grow a few cm / year, because the bog is so acidic.

These tiny, ancient trees have been left virtually undisturbed, even as surrounding rainforest was clearcut in the past 100 years.

It’s eerily quiet.  At one point on the trail, you can feel yourself being watched.

I swear, it’s wee folk, spirit beings, residents of this tiny ancient wood.

I feel them every time I visit, and catch movements out of the corner of my eyes.  



Ep. 13 – Funny & Surprising Animal Quotes!

We have a very special Sleep Deprived version of the podcast today!  Yes, it’s off-the cuff and entirely un-edited.  Today’s one of those days where you just do what you gotta do!  It’s summer, it’s busy and if you’re reading this, would you kindly take a moment to visualize Kat & I in our own little cabin or house somewhere quiet?  We’re really at the point where we need to seriously look into moving.

Here it is:

On a brighter note, today’s podcast is about one of my favourite topics:  Funny animal quotes!  If it wasn’t a “clean” podcast I would’ve titled it, “Funny shit animals say!”  But then, that’s probably the sleep-deprived brain, thinking that’s funny.

And now, I’m going to get away from this noisy house and hopefully have a nap on the beach.
