Keywords: exuberance, playfulness, laughter, the NOW

Habitat: Tumbling Mustard is originally from Europe and the Mediterranean before becoming naturalized in the United States. It grows in soils of all textures, even sand. Tumbling Mustard blooms for a long time and after it matures, the plant forms a tumbleweed.


Find your quiet exuberance for life: tingling, alive, refreshed, present, and joyful. Know that the joy and presence in each moment cannot be taken away. When you are present and aware everything changes. The mystery of life unfolds before your eyes. With each moment everything changes. Witness these changes by being fully present and see the mystery of life revealed. Inspiration happens in the NOW.

Tumbling Mustard is playful, cunning, and crafty in its ways. It teases with a play on words, thoughts, emotions, and meaning of things. Laughter is part of its medicine. It reminds you to not take yourself so seriously. Make sure to laugh at yourself daily.

When you are present in the moment, your priorities and the way you look at life changes. The world around you becomes more vibrant, joyful, and full of potential. That is where the magic happens.


  • Living in the past, future, fantasy, or through others, et cetera.
  • Being overly serious and stoic. Living in your logical/analytical brain. Priorities in life focused on the future at the expense of the present.


“The presence in each moment is the gift of life.”
