St Cajetan Print
8in x 8in archival matte print of original St Cajetan painting
From "The Monastery" manual:
I met this Candy Apple Bolete on a rainy camping trip. I was emotionally spent and I needed to lie on the moss, carry stream pebbles in my pockets like crystals, and fall asleep to the sound of the rain springing from the tent roof. All of my worries would be focused on stoking the campfire at night and breathing with the earth.
While walking through the woods on no particular path I just happened to come upon this apple red treasure, so regal and sacred. I knew it looked magical and felt special, but honestly didn’t understand the real magic of finding such a special mushroom, brand new and untouched. I think this is when mushrooms became close friends to me.
The Star card in tarot is representative of good fortune, it invites you to find your balance no matter how difficult the traveling has been. It tells you there’s a new journey with renewed hope.
When you stumble upon a mushroom it’s kind of like finding a little magic; Like seeing a bright star and finding an inner stillness as you stare in its distant, glaring bright light.
Maybe your star doesn’t need to be a mushroom, but there’s some magic everywhere and if you call attention to it, it can be what you need to remind you there’s balance and renewed hope.
