Te Araroa kilometers tramped: 848.4 of 3005.3

Books completed on trail: 15

I listened to the audiobook and flipped along in the ebook for the illustrations. So many interesting tidbits. Information overload! I need to buy a physical copy for the pretty illustrations and to keep in my cocktail cabinet. Lots of recipes to try. #rbdigital

Potawatomi author Kimmerer‘s enthusiasm for moss is infectious & I learned fascinating things about a subject I hadn‘t much thought about previously. The series of essays in this #audiobook combine memoir with scientific knowledge for general readers. She writes about humankind‘s relationship to the natural world & the important gifts that even such humble things as moss have to contribute to the ecological system. #Indigenous

Lindy I have heard that Robin Wall Kimmerer was an inspiration for Elizabeth Gilbert‘s main character in 5d

There is an ancient conversation going on between mosses and rocks, poetry to be sure. About light and shadow and the drift of continents. This is what has been called the “dialect of moss on stone - an interface of immensity and minuteness, of past and present, softness and hardness, stillness and vibrancy, yin and yan.“

For those of you who love nature, the outdoors, environmental science or ecology, Robin Wall Kimmerer writes beautiful essays about her relationship and the relationship of indigenous peoples with the land. #justfinished

I think you cannot own a thing and love it at the same time. Owning diminishes the innate sovereignty of a thing, enriching the possessor and reducing the possessed.

Moss leaves are only one cell thick.

kspenmoll So pretty, Lacey like. 1w

Lindy @kspenmoll @batsy The author‘s enthusiasm for moss is contagious. Since it‘s the audiobook that I‘m reading, I don‘t have access to the illustrations that are in the print edition. I feel guilty posting someone else‘s photo but I would need a microscope to get my own. The website is on the image, if you want to see more. 1w

This book just wasn't for me. I at least finished this one, which I can't say the same for the author's effort Eat, Pray, Love. Gilbert is perhaps just not an author whose works I enjoy. I didn't enjoy this, but since I was able to finish it, I give 2 stars. Into the donation pile it goes.
