My name is Melanie, but online you'll see me most of the time as melaniekaren. My educational background is in biology and environmental science. I love our natural world. When I was a kiddo, things like bugs and rocks made me happy. They still do.
I like to write about various Nature topics, ancient symbolism, sustainability and self-sufficiency and most things spiritually esoteric.
I try to create a source of awareness and education. I hope my artices are interesting and helpful for you.
