cmckane.comWelcome! I’m c and thanks for stopping by.

After a long blogging break, I’ve decided to begin writing about a place that grounds me, surrounds us and can never be completely explored; the outdoors.

I’m sure I’m not alone when cases of wanderlust strike hard, but am currently unable to travel the globe. In the meantime, I look for the beauty in local parks and try to connect further with nature by learning about herbal plants and easy ways to use them.

Full Disclosure: I’m not athletic or have an amazing knowledge base! However, being a clumsy thirty-something who gets lost even with GPS  won’t preclude me from appreciating the world around us.

I’ve always been a bit of a dreamer and say, ‘Oh, one day I’ll visit there or finally learn how to avoid poison ivy’. So I’m using this blog to help me to bridge the gap between being a dreamer and doer.

I believe that every person has the right to dream and should take actionable steps to make it a reality.

This site will focus on two steps towards my dream of deepening my knowledge of the natural world:

  • chronicling my outdoor misadventures as I attempt to visit as many parks as possible
  • reigniting my herbal studies to build a solid materia medica

Expect a post on Friday’s where topics will range from park trips, car camping, herbal recipes, herbal profiles and tips on getting outside even if you’re a bit clumsy or directionally challenged like me!

If any of this sounds interesting to you or you’re dreaming the same then shoot me a comment below or find me online. I’m most active on Instagram as @fromthefoot, but also use @cmckane on Twitter and plan to post bi-monthly on Medium as @cmckane.
