Letting Go to Save Yourself

BY: DOROTHY STEPHENSON I have a wood stove at my house. That’s how I mainly heat my home. This year, after cutting and splitting firewood, I noticed a few pieces that featured an intricate collage of moss and fungi. (I’ve recently been hanging out with my artistic cousin, Erica, who loves using natural elements in her floral creations. Seeing her in action has given me a whole new appreciation for things I typically took for granted – like moss on a piece of wood.)
