lichen and more

on one of our big hikes in the bergell, we spotted all sorts of lichen and i'm still intrigued with these forms of life. there is not a very long summer, not a lot of time and there is lots of give and take. lichen are perfectly in adapting and using what ever they get. in our city environment there have been less and less of those beautiful plants, as of the acidic rain.

Because lichens do not possess roots, their primary source is the air, and therefore elemental levels in lichens often reflect the accumulated composition of ambient air. sometimes that's a bit how things work in our house too...
there is life taking place and we all enjoy the moments and the "good air" in our living room, feeding of each other, of the excitment of the moment, there is "something in the air" and everyone gets all up beat (or down cast), yes as the plants react to what their environment provides so do we people.
living in a big household has it's challenges and also lot's of those wonderful feeding moments. listening to each others adventures and taking part in the persons happiness. as well as the sad and sorrowful moments of life. it's a very nourishing environment, i'm thriving and i'm thankful for this opportunity, for the place i call home and as i'm living i'm growing some times even flowers and bright shiny colours...
