OCD's support is expanding!
Hello everyone! This is the 83rd compilation post of OCD's latest curation efforts. It has been known that OCD has been supporting leading niche communities under its Community Incubation Program. However, there are still a lot of other niche communities not supported by OCD. This curation initiative will help in supporting those communities.
This newest curation effort aims to encourage authors to post in appropriate communities even if those communities are not under the incubation program. This will also encourage users to explore more into the different communities in Hive.
How this Works
OCD curators and community leaders will find posts from other niche communities and recommend them for an upvote. Unlike those communities in the incubation program where curation is focused, this curation initiative is spread out. This will help find undervalued posts from smaller communities that deserve support.
This will highlight both the author and the community where the post is located. This way, smaller niche communities can focus on growing their subscribers and increasing the engagements within their respective communities. A small boost goes a long way.
Speaking of boost, here are the curated posts for this batch:
The materials used were paint, pencil, brush and a small cloth to clean the excess water when cleaning the brushes. First of all, I started to make the background that will make that sunrise touch, making a degradation from the darkest that goes from first to the lightest that in this case would be yellow and white, once that degradation is done, a space is left to make the reflection of the sea with red and yellow colors.
The idea of a retreat that combines both the Shamanic traditions of the Americas and the deep spiritual practices of the East was in my mind for a while before I met the right people to do it with. I went to a Kambo Ceremony for the first time in January 2021 and had an interesting, new experience. Kambo is basically poison derived from a frog that lives in the Amazon Jungle and was used by hunters before they set off in the jungle. This was where I met Petar - he was part of the participants in the ceremony but later turned out to be a shaman himself and an Architect (I'm also an Architect. The other facilitator is Simona, who is a long tme friend of mine.
Mi Caramelo es de una banda argentina llamada Bersuit Vergarabat producida por Gustavo Santaolalla. Gustavo Cordera, quien la escribió y solía interpretarla, no solo es un gran poeta sino que también tenía un estilo para cantar "hablando" similar a Joaquín Sabina o Goyeneche (máximo exponente del estilo en el tango).
If you ask my unit manager at my workplace who is the most hardworking employee, I may not be the one he will say. However, if you change the question and ask who is the one always come to office, even not his turn to work, he will still come? Well, I can assure you he would say, David is the one!
Hello greetings to all the friends of Hive I hope you are very well.My work today is based on decorating a cute blue painted bottle with chopped CDs.
Hi friends! Today's photos, which I prepared for publication as part of the daily monochrome photography contest #monomad, I decided to combine under the common name "Beauty". I know that this is a somewhat abstract name, but it is quite accurate, in my opinion, allows you to convey the essence of what unites these three photos. This is a bouquet of lilies of the valley on a tablecloth, on which falls the shadow of the fence in the form of a lattice, a dandelion with a fluff on it (well, I can not do today without dandelions 😄) and a blossoming apple tree outside the window. I consider all three images beautiful)). And which photo did you like the most?
What's up guys, It's Saturday again and you what means, it means that its time to relax and unwind a little bit after a busy weekdays. Me my friends decided to have a little get together and to have a drink and talk about each others life.
Unfortunately a lot of local and indigenous knowledge has been diluted and lost with time as a lot of villagers have shifted to modern ways of thinking, using pumps and sprays, and often neglecting the abundance of nature all around in favour of monoculture cash crops. While there are still some wise old people in the forests, they are hard to access and I couldn't count on a local to help me discover my surroundings. Luckily the advent of technology and a globally connected world with people sharing information allowed me to learn about my environment by tapping into the collective knowledge of herbalists, foragers and wild life enthusiasts across the world. My process of identifying wild plants began with my mobile phone where I used Google Lens to give me an idea of what a plant might be. It wasn't always accurate, sometimes suggesting three or four options which I then followed up with meticulous internet research. Documenting plants at every stage of their growth and corroborating information with my discoveries, using all five senses to see if they matched with what I researched online. Some plants were easy to identify, others a lot harder. Some, I still haven't been able to find out about. Eventually however, I was able to learn more about wild plants that grow in the area, which is such a satisfactory feeling. Being able to pass by an otherwise mysterious clump of green on a hike, and knowing what the plant was and what it could be used for was so invigorating, even allowing for nature snacks on long walks. As such, I documented my findings and will now share with you five edible plants that grow wild in our area.
This farm has been one of our favorites for a year since we discovered it. It’s a bit of a far drive to get there but it’s an awesome place. They have amazing produce and their own fresh meats that are organic and grass fed. I don’t know when this cow here will turn into a dinner plate but at some point it will and another will be brought in. We enjoy spending time with her though, she’s quite the character! We have tried to figure out what it is that she wants in order to come over to see us. It wasn’t until late last year that we tried offering her some grass from the fresh stuff on the other side of the fence that we realized that would draw her attention. Now we are able to entice her to come say hi! I don’t know if she remembers us or not but when we say hi to her she will usually come over and spend some time with us while we have grass to give her. There’s been a lot of tall grass growth around and she was enjoying that today. We picked a bunch of it and this one is better for the little man since he can hold it out further without fear of getting his finger licked (bitten is his bigger fear but I tell him she won’t bite lol). She enjoyed quite a bit of it here!
