... how to stay alive in the woods, by bradford angier

i don't know who this man is, but he is a genuis. so far i have learned that basically anything is edible, or worth trying to eat when lost in the wilderness... except mushrooms. stear clear of mushrooms!!! this must have a day to day parallel, some metaphor for us in the civilized world. something like: what are the mushrooms in your life?

goal for the next year:
-identify edible plants in the manitoba wilderness and eat them
-be wary of things that grow in piles of metaphorical manure

There's tonnes you can eat out there, but don't forget about drinking as well. Many things can taste really yummy as a tea ;)

One of my favorite local finds is Devils Club tea... the plant looks downright vicious but it gives this wonderful spicy flavour ;)

Sweet writings and musings! I'm in favor of it tres much ;)
