Macro Musings

~ fungi sharing food magical living networks nature’s recyclers ~ I decided to revisit my passion for macro. In fact, I’ve been researching cellphones to see what the latest batch of phones can do.

My chest came with bonus gifts like an oil diffuser, crystal, and bath salts, a heartfelt note, and reminders to be open to new energies like possibility…
