Lisa Garr (email) was joined by authority on fungi, Paul Stamets, who talked about his discovery on how to use mushrooms to decompose toxic wastes and pollutants, catch and reduce silt from streambeds and pathogens from agricultural watersheds, as well as control insect populations, and generally enhance the health of our forests, gardens and bodies.
First hour guest, Dr. Marilyn Wedge, family therapist and ADHD expert, discussed how powerful stimulant drugs like Ritalin and Adderall are prescribed to treat childhood hyperactivity but rarely help.
This painting started out completely different and was supposed to be a painting honoring Grandfather Martin of The Hopi People. The sketches were not satisfying me and I felt they were not worthy of that type of honor. I was stuck, so I walked away from the painting. About a week later, I fell ill. I could not keep anything down. I was refusing to go to the doctor. I started to have visions of many different beings, I felt as if they were talking to me. This is one of the visions I had. All of my visions felt as if love surrounded them. I also felt like I was not alone or in my own home. Was I so sick that I hallucinated or was I contacted or a bit of both? I am not sure. So I felt I would share this with the listeners. This painting is done entirely in water colors on a yellow paper. I worked on this piece almost 2 months total time.
