Words shared on karenman.substack.com. The writing aims to honor dialogue, flow from a place of peace, challenge the ego, and present aspects of being in and on this beautiful, sacred, oxygenated, gassy planet. Expect topics ranging from permaculture, nutrition, baking, being outdoors, herbalism, mindfulness, to writers I’m enjoying and challenged by.

What  percentage of thoughts are experienced memories? Did we really experience them or did our brain just make it up?instax_book

Since discovering astrological birth charts, some things have more angles. What took me more than 3 decades to figure out, the universe knew when it birthed me. Definitively a Magnetic Blue Monkey (Mayan), and a Wood Ox. No accident I arrived 5 weeks early.

let us free.

flores del sol
hijas del sol
hijos del sol
juntos, ofrecemos nuestra luz
