This week’s A Nice Pair is for all of you plant lovers. We recommend listening to Mort Garson’s Mother Earth’s Plantasia with Michael Pollan’s book This Is Your Mind on Plants.
If your plants could talk, don’t you think they’d just be begging for a bit of Moog music while trying their best to grow happy and healthy?! I mean, there aren’t a ton of albums recorded specifically for plants, so why not treat them?
While your plants are reaching new highs, in his latest book Pollan examines other kinds of highs, notably three psychoactive substances that occur in nature: caffeine, opium and mescaline. He discusses our attraction to these substances, the taboos and laws that are attached to them and how we engage with nature when consuming these plants.
