Another day in Paradise

The Mycelium kingdom… A magical happenstance.

I hike whenever I get the chance, and here in Big Sur I’ve found a new passion–foraging for mushrooms. I’ve begun to identify 20 or 30 varieties and have even worked up the courage to start eating some as I find them. Honey Mushrooms line the canyon walls just behind the Henry Miller Library. Some are poisonous and some are delicious! I don’t know each and every one, but the more time I spend studying them and drawing them, the more I am able to learn–to learn by looking, by slow steady hands examining each and every detail of this amazing world of fungi.
