It just has to be said, here in SE QLD we are having the best weather for us plant lovers. A little water at night (if it doesn't rain) and sunshine all day. Got rid of my "scale" infestation (thanks guys!!! ) and things are booming. *Happy Gardening*
Just trying to close my computer world a little, and wondering, does anybody reading this have a "MySpace" page? If so, that would be cool-"You can't have too many friends"-Me. So if you do, just add me at http://www.myspace.com/shamanicsounds and let me know where your from! (i.e: The Corroboree) Just trying to get all my "chat buddies" in the one place.
I've been waiting for this all winter, and here it comes...SPRING! The best time of year as your days get more sunny and alive, so does your garden. I just grafted a few more cacti and aloe, but I will take some photos near the end of spring, it'll look good then...until then, HAPPY GARDENING!!!
Well, here I am in Sydney for the weekend...just made my first (hopefully first of many) swapsies with a "stranger" I met through this site (lol...all legal, grafts ect...) and it has really made me think. How long would it have taken me to met this person without this site? I dare say maybe never considering location, but this all just adds to the light I was sent last night. I lay there thinking of how giving gives you more than taking, This person proved themselves so I provided a couple o' grafts (the best I had) to build his collection and after sleeping on his reply, and "thank yous" I awoke with a sensation taking could never give. It cost me the crowns of my 2 favourite San Pedros, and around $8 p/h but his grattitude gave me a feeling nothing else could! OH HOW SOME PEOPLE HAVE IT ALL BACKWARDS!!! What is the price of mateship and trust? "Priceless" I refused his offer to pay p/h insisting "no promises, just favours" and haven't felt this good in a while:) Of course he replied with an offering of "seeds ect..." This all floods me with light, Have we reverted to true Archaic barter on trust my friend? I think so and it is a great feeling, one which I do not want to lose! So, whoever is reading this, take a leap and give, not just what you can spare, give the best you can for free! Trust me, the feeling you recieve is better than any pill you may have popped and stronger than any man you have battled!!! So today, think of what you would like to recieve, then give that to a "nobody" for no reason...I assure you...better than drugs, sex...hell, even sex on drugs!!!
"I know it's far fetched, but we really could make the value of money non-existant, by using trust, mateship and plain, old-fashioned purity, I think an Archaic Revival may be a big ask globally, but you can create it today within yourself, which is a good start, after all, wasn't the biggest tree in your street once a tiny seed?"

Shroomie the Shaman
I have been ordering the odd thing or two from "Shaman Australis" for a while now, but just recently have started to contribute to the forums. Once I did, it took about 48 hours for me to turn from a soul that thought he was either looking at everything sideways, an outcast from all society..."Why am I the only one that thinks like this?" and the rest of the world was mad...to a openly practicing Shaman, standing tall and proud while finding like minded people taking me seriously, even to the point of sharing similar experiences and thoughts. Searching yahell chatrooms for truly open minds was a complete waste of time because I have found 3 friends (all in U.S.A) through yahell (and that took 3-4 years) and now am linking up with many like minds...Once again, to all that have saved this Shaman from insanity...THANK YOU. This shall now be "home."
