About + Contact

I am a gardener, astrologer, visual artist, and a traditional home herbalist.  Because I observe the seasons, the sky and earth are an ineluctable part of living.

The house and garden are my domains, as are the people and pets who live there.   I find the divine in the out of doors and in the details of daily life.

I teach ways to restore individual connection with the natural world, above, below and around us.  To accomplish that connection you need two things:  the idea that you are alive; a willingness to employ your senses and powers of observation to prove it.

In the garden, we ask if a dry plant is dead or dormant.  We don’t know until we see signs of green emerge from stems or roots.  As a human being living in interesting times, the natural world, from soil to stars, has been the most reliable way to tune in to life force.

D RyallLife takes shape where the mysteries dwell.
Nothing is ordinary once you know its story.

To consult with me about creating your own restorative connection, please see the Consults page.
