Yellow Mushrooms


I would not ask for everything, I have nowhere to keep all these; it hurts too if excitement overflows.

When joy comes bit by bit, this makes the quota last longer.

Mushrooms today come in abundance, but joy is simple. Joy is even simpler after a lot of perspiration on the hiking trail.

Mushrooms are like a library, I can flip through the books of dreams of the forest whenever I want. How far I can go this library is never a constraint, it depends on how good I interpret and how deep I understand.

A tiny mushroom is sky-big, a big sky overwhelms my playground, small Cerok Tokun. I am an old simple mushroom man.

It's always a pleasure to come by your blog and read your stories about life (and mushrooms :)
These yellow ones are really pretty and the idea of seeing them as books is unique.
Have a nice weekend!!

I agree that true joy can be found in simple things. People who understand that have a secret gift.

I love this, Rainfield. You have a wonderful way with words. The photos of the mushrooms are beautiful too.

We had two unusual mushrooms sprout in our yard this morning and I thought of you. These yellow mushrooms in your post remind me of sugar cookies.

Your prose of mushrooms and analogy to life is divine as are your photos ~ gems of nature ~ You may be a simple mushroom man but you are a rich one ~ Sacred in the ordinary ~ xoxox

I rather have simple joy than anything, and the best thing is your simple joy is stored wherever you keep them.

You have to enjoy what still gives you life, and do not claim to be an old fungus. :)))

You might be a mushroom man, but I don't think you are old, and I KNOW you are not simple! Lovely thoughts, lovely picture.

On a distinctly un-poetic note, I really want to ask you if any of these mushrooms you find are edible?

My grandson and his wife pick Chanterelles in Oregon and they are so delicious. (I myself am afraid to pick any for fear they'd be the wrong ones, but I trust him.)
