Gliding Into the Darkness; The Turning of the Wheel

Carl Jung took the work of Sigmund Freud and expanded the concepts of what he referred to as the “shadow side of the psyche”. The unconscious mind that holds the secrets and the hidden parts of our being, often triggered to the surface when we do not wish them to be.

Learn about the symptoms and causes of depression and what to do if you or a loved one is suffering.

Sharing Chickens with a Bobcat

A couple of months ago, a bobcat took 3 of my chickens while I was trying to figure out who did it. The first one disappeared from a part of the yard she wasn’t supposed to be in, out in the open with no one around. We fixed the hole in the fence. The next [Read More...]
