This Plant Is For You

This Plant Is For You

Look at the sky: that is for you. Look at each person's face as you pass on the street: those faces are for you. And the street itself, and the ground under the street, and the ball of fire underneath the ground: all these things are for you. They are as much for you as they are for other people. Remember this when you wake up in the morning and think you have nothing.

―Miranda July

"No One Belongs Here More Than You"

Plants talking to each other and listening to us is all around me. Dunna why. 

I think maybe this place is even more cool and amazing than we have been led to believe. Check out these two video segments:

How to talk to a plant.

Nature : What Plants Talk About

Drawing on the right side of the brain.

Now, my path of learning has not included sketching classes with Boston Ferns scratching out nude guys with a piece of charcoal, true. But all these segments ARE about communication and perception, and I challenge you to watch all three and reach your own conclusions.

You may reach the same place I have, and see that what we hear, what we feel, what we think, everything that we perceive about our lives and our existence, are all filtered through how we have LEARNED to see the world. And yes, we can learn a lot from the plants we can not live without.
