In my quest to better myself and my life, I’ve decided to take up meditation and in my husband’s quest for mushrooms (no, not psychedelics), he stumbled upon a whopper.
A Giant Western Puffball eight inches in diameter weighing nine pounds.
It looks eerily like a human skull and it’s now in my freezer.
I’ve known about puffballs for years and have collected and cooked them but I had no idea we had these enormous masses growing in the Pacific Northwest. They are edible and taste and feel much like tofu from what I’ve read.
We put it on Craigslist.
As for meditation, I need to learn how to shut out the gunshots as my neighbor is target shooting.
I’m interested in rewiring my brain and apparently meditation helps to accomplish that. I previously saw it as a “hippy” thing to do but there’s research now that shows it’s super effective in changing for the better.
Meditating temporarily disengages your mind with the subconsciousness making it easier to replace negative with positive attitudes.
I’m starting off with short intervals that I can do while the neighbor reloads.
