|hey man, get those poisonous things away from me!|
that story from my hometown just gets worse and worse, so i thought i'd lighten things up with the season's first gorgeous amanitas. they are so bright and beautiful - they're the stuff of fairytales; every year, i feel delighted and surprised by them. i never tire of their bright red polka-dotted beauty. and today, with all of the bad news coming through (i didn't know these people, but somehow, i do feel the effect on my hometown, even here across an ocean), finding a small moment of delight in nature was much needed.
hold onto your moments of delight, you never know when you will need them.
