Meditative Studies day #7 - a purple weedMonday, September 10, 2012
Another oh so close drawing today. I sat in the dog park and studied a weed with which I am unfamiliar. It is everywhere up here . It has purple flowers and I think it's really pretty scattered all along the roadside. I was told what its common name is but have forgotton. The sight of prolific healthy weeds always make me wonder what resource we could be missing out on. A while ago I did an edible weeds workshop and found that an abundant weed was actually a super nutritious and damned tasty vegetable the ancient Greeks knew as purslane. The Chinese still use it. And now I do too.
