My Mushrooming Hobby

My Mushrooming Hobby

Every August and September, ever since we met, Jeremy and I go to the mountains to go treasure hunting. That is, for us, hunting for porcini and chanterelles. Very soon, I fell in love with the activity as I found myself totally lost in stillness, looking for the treasures. My mind is quiet and yet alert when I look for these wonders. Now, Anouk is also a keen mushroomer. My zen moment isn’t the nature of solitude any longer as she loves to recount her stories, experiences and tales, however, it is now another bonding experience that I cherish.
