The Virtues of Mud
Yeah for soil! Let's hear it for the power of mud!
Combine the elements of water and earth for a powerful synchrony that can stop leaking oil wells, cleanse the skin, keep children happy for hours, or build a house.
Have you hugged your mud today? Go outside! Make some mud pies. Let it squish between your toes. Make a sculpture. Give thanks. Let your awareness sink into the mud and just notice. What secrets and powers does it have to share with you?
