About Me

“I do

notice the more I lose touch
with what I previously saw as my life
the more real my spot in the dark winter pew becomes—
it is infinite.  What we experience
as space, the sky
that is, the sun, the stars
is intimate and rather small by comparison”.

Franz Wright

Hello there,

(I’m not quite sure how you wound up here, but hello nevertheless.)

I’m Lindsay, an archaeologist and Kitchen Witch  currently residing in Texas.  In addition to being an archaeologist, I’m a cook by trade with a huge focus on sustainability, seasonal eating, gardening, and foraging.

I am big believer in spiritual connection to the earth and try to find myself in nature everyday. It helps quiet the chaos and is, in many ways, my favorite form of meditation.

Here you’ll likely find quite a bit of poetry, folklore, and ethnobotanical research… with a recipe mixed in ever now and again.

I’m a person not a brand (and a rather eclectic one at that!)

What I’m trying to say… Is that this corner of the ethereal inter web is mine. It is my space to share some of my writing, thoughts, and photos.

 I  thank you for taking a look.
