Carrying Rosebud with us

        I recently read that throughout our lives 
our bones and teeth become reservoirs for the chemical elements 
to which we have been exposed. 

Our bodies use the local water we drink 
to form the proteins and elements
present in our hair, fingernails
and other body tissues.
We do, in fact, 
spiritually, emotionally and physically 
carry all our landscapes with us.

The spirit of  a place gets into our hearts and souls 
as the basic elements of a place
are joined to our very bodies and bones.

I suspect we're all good with that!
