A Journey to Me ... Jonnie Dee

I was at a funeral last week and my friend said "Jonnie Dee, I'd like to read that book you are going to write. Can you write it before I die?"

I've never thought that anyone would find a jonnie dee written book interesting.

Mainly because I'm self taught herbal novice. What I usually share are herbal pictures, life lessons, messages from the plants and ideas on how an herb can be used for health, gifts & crafts, cosmetic and household uses and food uses. I give a general description of health uses for an herb and always encourage the reader to study herbs.

One of my favorite sayings is, find an herb, study it, use it, give thanks for it and share it.

I don't prescribe and rarely advise. I like to think that my purpose is to bring light and attention to the unnoticed, unappreciated and discarded. This thought pattern encompasses people, plants and things. My vision is for you to take a closer look and appreciate the above and possibly delve into a deeper understanding and of a learning adventure.

In the meantime, I believe that the grace and appreciation of the above, has helped guide me on the "journey to me".

I'm learning to forgive myself for not accepting and loving myself. This is coming to me by way of my journey of the awakening and appreciation of the unnoticed, unloved, and unappreciated.

My journey and relationship with the plants have taught me lessons and self appreciation. It's been a long awaited love story to myself so maybe there are other people out there who might appreciate what I have to say.

So, maybe I shall start that book today.

Thanks for listening....much love, jonnie dee #tsht
