I had about 2 thousand succulents and cactus in my tiny apartment. Mostly ones I propegated. Watering and checking their wellbeing constantly became to be quite the chore. Then I found a seemingly magical land with an incredible husband and wife owners and grandma of course - at 94 years old - with plenty of pep and passion for plants.. many "slips" as she calls them.. I call it propegation. Which not many places do. They took me in as part of the family and just as importantly my friends got to come with too! 😂I used to play pool roughly 30 hours a week on average from age 16 to about age 29. Playing competitively on leagues and spending time with friends at their house and at bars. It consequentially fed and enabled my addiction to drugs and alcohol for those long 13 years.I am standing on top of a pool table. In the same way I have rose about my struggles of my previous life. Standing on top. Barefoot. Water being shed. Nourishing my plants that i grew while they allowed me to grow. Nourishing me myself on fulfilment - on journey - on growth - on sobriety - on learning - on struggles - on emotion - on enlightenment - on time well spent - on passion - on senses - on mindfulness - on metaphors and on perspective allowing my subconscious to change my entire being - while I become mindful of my surroundings my past my present and my future. It all becomes one. I'm at peace. I still struggle. I am still confused. Tempted. Scared. Lonely. Tired. Looking back. Looking forward. Looking sideways. I try to look within as often as I can. I tend to put too much on my plate and hinders my growth but I am still learning who I am. I always will. It's almost to the anniversary of my stroke. My hell. And my journey to my enlightenment. T-11 days.. T- as much as possible of time being irrelevant and relative. I'm starting production with a completely "new" I changed every step along the process to streamline and make everything more efficient. It will be another week or two til the real start begins.. I'm going to try to savor, enjoy, and learn from my emotions - my thought processes - my laugher - my tears of pain and happiness - my surroundings -

“The future lies before you, like a field of fallen snow; Be careful how you tread it, for every step will show.” Seems fitting for the new year. I'm now a year older, after my Golden Birthday on December 31, 2017. A year wiser in things that matter to me and my happiness. I search enlightenment with everything I do and I am fortunate - as I find a great deal - more often than not. You can learn a great deal from going trough the gates of hell and if you do it proper and put some time and energy into it you can learn how to learn. It's almost been 2 years now of recovery. I can't even fathom the next 2 years - as long as I stay healthy. My goal: 2 years from now I will have friends to play with aka employers - a space to call my own - in order to enjoy time with ~ while watching plants grow and plexiglass bend. Watch the world change. Use my senses to attempt to watch myself grow as best as I know possible ~~ fine meaningful relationships with peaceful and intelligent people. Life is a dream it seems.. more often than not. It's hard to recall what just happened.. as if you just woke up and had to rush to go to work.. I will spend energy to gain insight and focus and find the proper tools in order to allow me to interpret my "waking dream" throughout my journey. Thank you for this last year.

Part of my instagram pages story that I am creating to document my life on a more logical way. To attempt to build my Window Wonderz business and to build my Photography/Videography career. I want to look back and be able to see. To remember. To have a visual reminder.This video of my ischemic stroke that I had almost 2 years ago. The bright white area is all dead tissue in my brain. I just had a second MRI and it is all black now - nothing but fluid - which was a very sickening feel to watch unfortunately. I am going to get that video when I get a medical release one of these days.. Quite the life changing event. For good and bad. Bittersweet. I see things different now. Respect and humility. Perspective. Growth through struggle. And many other words.. I still struggle with memory, comprehension, writing, reading, and energy but I make do. Notes on notes on notes all over the place. I repeat myself often when talking to others. Struggle for words often. I am currently trying to figure out why my hands twitch and twist with involuntary movements. My eyes feel like they get sucked into my head. Legs get spasmed together. Will be seeing a "movement disorder" specialist from the UM Twin Cities soon to find answers. EEG found nothing. Distonia is the words. But mean nothing still.. Either way I'll survive and keep on keeping on the best I can!But I am also now 1.5 years sober almost exactly at the moment. And the crowning achievement of my life's existance. Another quite life changer. Life is good. And bad. Such is life! But it's mostly good! 😊To purchase a Window Wonderz To become part of my journey..- - My hand made window attaching planter- - Visit my Etsy site: 👉👉Etsy.com/shop/windowwonderz👈👈 #mystory #instagramstory #business #career #growth #visualreminder #stroke #ischemicstroke#neuro#neurology #mri #ctscan #brain #life #lifeslessons #growth #sobriety #sober #addict #addiction #good #bad

I love propagating plants! 😆😆😆 I propegated roughly 2000 plants last winter into the spring. Mostly succulents and a few cacti. They best plants to do so!It was interesting doing so in about a 500 square foot apartment until I moved them all to the greenhouse. When there is a will - there is a way!

Oldest growth Jade I have ever done seen!!! 😍😍😍 I walked in and saw it right away and was just blown away. I went right in of course to see the diameter of the trunk. First thing I noticed was it's texture. I forgot the size at the time as soon as I saw its incredible bark on it - it was raised - rough- a nice soft rough though - sticking out of the edge a millimeter or two - it was an incredible experience. It doesn't even phase me anymore -- my seemingly insane demeanor(?) Actions(?) Whatever the word it may be. It's me. And I love it. I was in the middle of the store literally petting this Jade Plant for quite some time! Studying it. Walking back aways to look at the whole think then back in close from ever angle. I don't think I was talking to it though? Who knows?? 😂😂😂 Such a new beautiful color texture of the trunk. The"old growths" I've seen are maybe 15 years -- this one wad about 30 she said. The younger ones are smooth. Just like humans I suppose! I studied it for some time. The forks. The branches. The leaves. The new fresh lime green little leaves. The old yellowed ones. The old wrinkled ones. The dark green plump ones in the middle. The pot itself inside filed with old crusty dead galen leaves. The different diameters of the about 8 plants in the outside (15 years maybe) with the one large central (30 years maybe) in the middle. Wow. What a fantastic story to watch and to allow to unfold right infront on my eyes. I will be back for you for a proper documentation. My first videography project perhaps? Yes. I believe so!!! 👌👌👌 Then of course I was on the Hunt to find the owner. The woman said it's the owners (the shop) but she wasn't there. She said she inherited it when she bought the shop. She THEN said a woman was in a couple weeks ago - looking to "rehome" a 130 year old Jade Tree. (Is that a real thing!?) She did it took 3 people to move it last time. So ya... I have her my number of course and said I would give it a great new home! Somehow? Meh. I'll figure it out! :) What a great day. Thank you.. Universe? No. Just thank you. Yes that sounds proper. Has a good flow ~What a great day. Thank you. 🌱

More pictures of the first prototypes.The first batch I ever made. My first sales.The first plants to be put in them. The first plants to be on the windows.Sandy from Hermes was my first sale. She was as excited as I was with this new product and a new way to display your houseplants and my story as to how this all came about. Her store was about 3 blocks from where I lived at the time and I still own more than several plants I found at her store. Focusing on my humbling beginnings is important more to start from start here on my new Instagram and Facebook page. For me to keep me conscious of the journey - not the destination. In my typical fashion I spent 8 -15 hours a day working on this journey. Days off were not an option. Eating standing up - when I was hungry - something I still struggle with today but it is getting better! Patience is tough. Time is a beautiful angry beast at times for myself struggling with bipolar. I spent roughly 1500 hours in about 6 months til I was comfortable selling the product and the mass production process. It was tough - as a perfectionists and rocking half of a brain after the stroke - but damnet it made it want it even more. It was a beautiful process. Journey. So spiritual I can't even start to begin! This isn't just a business. This is my life. My new life. The story of my journey. What made huge part of who I am today after recovering from a stroke and addiction. The universe have given me a beautiful path. To allow me to be me. To grow. A way to share my story to others. To help others who have struggled.

Welcome to Wonder Windowz! I figured I should start from the start.. These photos tell the story of my new life.I say "new life" as I had a massive stroke - having to learn to talk again - while learning how to live life on life's terms as no longer being a drug addict achoholic.Plants saved my life. Subsequently my stroke - not able to work - sparked my passion for propegation which sparked my, now business - Wonder Windowz. The 4 adhesive shelved Window Wonderz, as they are now called, was the first I made. Believe me it wasn't easy with half a brain! The others you see are the first prototypes - cubed - functional and perfect for all types of plants and anywhere in your home. Much trial and error and spiritual growth later - I am proud to share my planters and my passion of all things plants to the world. Enjoy! 😊To purchase a Window Wonderz To become part of my journey..- - My hand made window attaching planter- - Visit my Etsy site: 👉👉Etsy.com/shop/windowwonderz👈👈 ***These photos are of original prototypes and are not for sale******Future posts will show the ~perfected~ product that is available for a sale***
