Is This Chaga? A Key For Identifying This Remarkable Fungus

Posted in Uncategorized on September 7, 2021 by HowlingFire

I just harvested some chaga….

Wild Foodism

isthischagannowildfoodismThis is a fairly common question I receive, usually accompanied by a picture similar to the one shown here.  It’s a good question indeed, and it’s one that I would like to explore beyond a simple “Yes” or “No” answer (spoiler alert:  the answer is “No”).

In my early mushrooming days, it was the chaga fungus that had me most excited (don’t get me wrong, I’m still bedazzled).  I remember exploring the hardwood forests near Pittsburgh (not exactly an ideal habitat for chaga) in search of this medicinal marvel, and discovering what I thought were potential candidates.  I’d perceive one far in the distance and immediately scurry to the spot.  Standing under the darkened mass, hoping my search yielded success, I’d wonder, “Is this chaga?”

It wasn’t.

Rather, the abnormal growth that had myself (and countless others, judging by requests on identification forums) fooled was a tree burl resembling the…

Etruscan rabbit hole…..

Posted in Uncategorized on August 3, 2021 by HowlingFire

I listen to a podcast called “Mysteriousl Universe” and this morning they were talking about this story….


I was intrigued…was it written in what we know now as Runes? As Runes were linked back to the Etruscan writing, but what I found was much more….in a short time of research I was able to find some ancient names of Gods/Goddeses from the Etruscan region. My Italian Ancestors come from this region, so it like following a Path, Home.

My Heart’s Content

Posted in Uncategorized on August 1, 2021 by HowlingFire

Finally my local Goth Club, Plague opened for the first time in 18 months.

I DANCED until my Heart’s Content!!!!

Dancing for me Heals my Soul and Reinvigorates my Spirit. I am an artist and Dance is one of my most powerful mediums. Being a very carnal being, moving my body and letting my Spirit Hair down is why I am human.

Dressed in my favorite outfit, and it was the “Ladies”, first night Goth night since their redo. First I paid homage to the “Lady of Portland” and did some Magick around Monument Square….wandered the streets and sang a song…..

I made my way down the stairs and entered what felt like a dream….a room full of Lovely Goths and music…

My ear caught onto the song that was playing…..

I quickly made my way to my favorite spot in front of the speaker and entered into an Esctatic state!!!

As a long time Party Girl….I so love kicking off the night on the dance floor!!

I will be checking out some new clubs here in Portland to see what I can see……

Fire and Water

Posted in Uncategorized on July 2, 2021 by HowlingFire

After days of 90 degree temperatures, which is not usual for Maine in June, it is raining today!

The days of heat was so challenging. The West Coast had it worse, with temperatures over a hundred for days!

Here it was uncomfortable and my lungs did not want to work outside, but it was manageable. I have a AC for the first time in my life, and I am so glad that I do!

Soft rain falls

Trees drink it in

Soft rain falls

Plants revived!

Soft rain falls

Tourists slowed

Soft rain falls

Dream filled night
