Well, sometimes a six or seven month break is needed I suppose. I’ve been busy building my practice, Nightingale Acupuncture here in Portland. And I’ve also been terrarium maven and chicken wrangler at Pistils Nursery. It’s a great combination of worlds for me and I’m loving my decision to move further North. I haven’t stopped taking pictures for the Urban Field Guide or collecting pictures on the new-to-me Pinterest phenomenon. I’m constantly looking around at the intersection of nature, humanity and art. And the possibilities of medicine lurking within that tryst. Absolutely. Lately I’ve been in love with the blog From Moon to Moon. It has me dreaming of growing into a bohemian lifestyle now that I’m about to enter my 40s. Sure, why not? If it looks like this:

Now that I’m further North I’m even more inspired to get to see this amazing phenomenon. Have you seen it?

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted. I’m walking around and see hundreds of pictures I want to share here, and have a huge list of links to post about. So what’s the hold up? I’ve been so busy starting my business, and then also starting up a new neighborhood health clinic, that when I have free time I just want to run around in the SUN while it is graciously visiting Portland! But I miss it here, and when I saw these ceramic pots over at Design Sponge this morning I had to share. Check out this lovely work by tw pottery:

The NY Times has a great post today on the art of Ben Wilson, London’s resident chewing gum artist. He works tirelessly with a blow torch, some lacquer and  his paints to create tiny pieces of art throughout the city from blobs of old chewing gum stuck to the pavement. It’s a sweet article, that you should definitely check out. I really appreciate his process and commitment.

You know The Urban Field Guide is loving the work of Anna Garfoth! I’m so grateful to the always inspiring blog My Love For You Is A Stampede Of Horses for introducing me to her work!

I love her mediums in these photos: masking tape, leaves and moss.

I follow the blog Miss Moss pretty regularly and am always enamored with her posts. A while back she posted these gorgeous photographs by Nina Leen that she found in the Life magazine archives. I wanted to repost them here for you to enjoy.

I’m pretty much in love with these right now, of course that they are brightly colored and it’s another grey day here in Portland definitely helps. These cute planters are the creation of etsy shop Plaid Pigeon from Austin, TX.
