Still not over the flu but after two weeks of coughing and feeling unwell I knew what I needed to recover was to connect back with Nature, hug a tree, smell the damp forest floor. So I have been going out these last few days, but I’ll keep some of the hikes for another post. Grounding in Nature is the best way to heal it, I swear, I felt it clearing my lungs. Yesterday we also hiked and enjoyed the beauty of this moody Autumn season.
So, for the above reason, some days ago me and Héctor (who seems recovered from the bug) and I went to feed my “deer” friend Hirvi
and his family, that we have been befriending for the last year and a
half. They all came running to us like puppies as soon as we stirred
close their living area. They already know we often come visit with
treats. The baby fawn is now all grown up into a beautiful young doe and
ate bread for the first time. I swear she was smiling all the time
enjoying the new flavours, and so excited about it. Mum doe ate lots of
carrots. Proud stag looks like a crowned king with the antlers fully
grown, a true Guardian of the Forest

Last week my friends Estela and Nalian came to visit and our first
hike was to visit this well known waterfall and pond in Navarre, Spain.
We parked in a little village called Gorostapolo. The village is very
small and there are some days you will have to park in the previous
village, Erratzu and walk a mile or two from there. From Gorostapolo is a
very short hike of just about a mile through the woods.

Autumn is my favourite of all seasons :). I honestly love them all
but I grew in a tropical island where “The Fall” would never take place.
Even then I had already written “I steal the leaves” one of the first
songs I ever shared online (I steal the leaves but I´ll bring them back
in Spring…) and first time I saw the leaves changing colours I was
amazed. So that bright, colourful period where all colours shift infuse
my spirit with magic… 🙂 I always have loved Nature 🙂 but for a while
I lived in a big city and some years ago I returned to a quieter life
closer to the healing Mother. I hike a lot, and as you all know I love
fantasy (music, literature, costumes) and I love to dress up a lot :)…
I upload fantasy pictures regularly to my instagram account
