Interconnectedness
24”x24”

We are all connected. Mushrooms have taught me the interconnectedness they share with trees and with all life forms, and the molecular matrix that we share.

For the past several months, I've been led into the forest by something whispering my name ~ a voice on the wind calling "this way". I go deeper into the forest, finding something hidden on the back of a dead log, or growing just beneath my feet.
.
The Mushroom Whisperer guides us into the forest and through the woods, reminding us that the invisible web under the soil doesn't just allow the mushrooms to thrive, but enables communication with all living things in the forest. And some days I hear it too.
.
The Mushroom Whisperer Ancestor Doll will be available on the New Moon this month. Please sign up to my newsletter to be among the first to hear when she becomes available (link in bio).
.
On her body are embroidered mushrooms, and around her neck is a dried piece of mossy maze polypore collected by me in August.

It was inspiring to listen to giulifungi talk about Women in Mycology organized by the Mycological Society of Toronto/ mushroomtoronto on Monday. Giuliana also presented some of her more unique fungi findings in Chile, including the 𝘈𝘮𝘢𝘯𝘪𝘵𝘢 𝘎𝘢𝘭𝘢𝘤𝘵𝘪𝘤𝘢.

Many of you may see this drawing as 𝘈𝘮𝘢𝘯𝘪𝘵𝘢 𝘔𝘶𝘴𝘤𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘢 also known as the Fly Agaric in black and white, but this drawing is of the lesser known 𝘈𝘮𝘢𝘯𝘪𝘵𝘢 𝘎𝘢𝘭𝘢𝘤𝘵𝘪𝘤𝘢, a black and white mushroom.

PS. Arnaud and I started a new mushroom account mycofora

Trying to forge for mushrooms amongst all the fall leaves feels like treasure hunting.
As you dive into the forest thinking you have spotted a golden chanterelle, through the spider webs, over the fallen trees, but it turns out to be a yellow leaf 😅 still you are left with a feeling that it was all worth it.

Toronto! I’ll be participating in this year’s Game of Shrooms. Check out the Facebook event linked below or in attayumfactory profile. More details to come this week, but foraging takes place August 15. I’ll be hiding my shrooms somewhere in the city (that you can find and keep!) and giving out bonus clues if you make a donation to food sovereignty initiative africanfoodbskt or support a local black business if aren’t able to donate.
The Afri-Can FoodBasket Is Building A Team And Raising Money To Provide Emergency Food Support To Individuals And Families Within The African, Caribbean, Black Community In Toronto Who Have Been Affected By COVID-19 And In Need Of Support Accessing Food.

Here are some mushrooms in progress that I’ll be hiding! Can you id these delicious shroomies?✨🍄✨ .

“Direct sensuous reality, in all its more-than-human mystery, remains the sole solid touchstones for an experiential world now inundated with electronically-generated vistas and engineered pleasures; only in regular contact with the tangible ground and sky can we learn how to orient and to navigate in the multiple dimensions that now claim us.” ~ David Abram, The Spell of the Sensuous
.
Now that physical contact with others is out, many of us are remembering a deep love of nature, extending our need for intimacy back to our original Mother.
.
In the city, my son is often tentative in terms of his physical being-ness, always a bit on the cautious side. As an introverted-extrovert who loves working from home, mama to a total extrovert, his need for social interaction is much greater than mine and he desperately misses his friends and being with others. But when we’re outside, alone on the trails, his confidence has exploded, an so has mine.
.
There is a gorgeous hidden language, silenced under the din of city life, longing to be heard, and in this time of physical distancing, we are reuniting to our first true love.
.
