Gone Mushroom Hunting

December, 2015

I'm hanging up my Gone Mushroom Hunting sign.

I decided to do away with the Gone Fishing sign, since I no longer eat fish, but this post isn't really about my dietary choices. Let the term mushroom hunting stand as a symbol for going away/taking stock/searching/experimenting with the use of my time/working with fewer distractions. Although I wouldn't mind picking up a book and learning more about mushrooms. It might happen.

I'm not sure when I will return. I might know more about chanterelles, I might not.

May the rest of your December be merry, and may the start of your new year be filled with inspiration.

    1. Thank you, Cynthia. I must admit that I did not do any actual mushroom hunting, but I have been productive in other ways.

  4. I know how you feel and can certainly relate, but I will miss seeing your thoughtful posts here and on Instagram, too, Denise. You are a thinker and ponderer and sometimes that requires contracting a bit in one place so you can expand elsewhere. I sure hope to read more of your words in 2016! Sending hugs your way and wishing you a very bright and peaceful end to this year! -Sheila (@aprairieporch)
