Mother Nature is the ever present connection between all things somatic and tangible.

There was something painfully misaligned inside me since I could remember. Skateboarding has been my conduit to a sense of presence in a queer body, safely outside of the mind. I sought oblivion in addiction and lived in dysfunction which worked, then it stopped.

For a number of years I chased the process of tattooing other human beings around the world. Finally landing in recoveries and committing to spiritual practices turned on the lights.

The ritual of a permanent energetic exchange looks like this on a good day, thanks Andrea.

The word “nature” comes from the Latin word, “natura“, meaning birth or character (see nature (philosophy)). In English, its first recorded use (in the sense of the entirety of the phenomena of the world) was in 1266. “Natura” and the personification of Mother Nature were widely popular in the Middle Ages. As a concept, seated between the properly divine and the human, it can be traced to Ancient Greece, though Earth (or “Eorthe” in the Old English period) may have been personified as a goddess. The Norse also had a goddess called Jörð (Jord, or Erth).

The earliest written usage is in Mycenaean Greek: Ma-ka(transliterated as ma-ga), “Mother Gaia“, written in Linear Bsyllabic script (13th or 12th century BC).[1] In Greece, the pre-Socratic philosophers had “invented” nature when they abstracted the entirety of phenomena of the world as singular: physis, and this was inherited by Aristotle. Later medieval Christian thinkers did not see nature as inclusive of everything, but thought that she had been created by God; her place lay on earth, below the unchanging heavens and moon. Nature lay somewhere in the center, with agents above her (angels), and below her (demons and hell). For the medieval mind she was only a personification, not a goddess.
