I picked up 30 Milkweed Plants at Tree Of Life Nursery in San Jaan Capistrano and brought them back to LA.
If you want one to raise some Monarch Caterpillars and plant one in LA send me an email.
I’ll meet you in Silverlake and bring a plant.
Absolutely, yes I want to do this.

This book went way beyond what I expected. I was so blown away with her spirituality, her smarts, her pain, her travels…nevermind her amazing career. I’ve read so many books on spirituality and self-help and this is definitely tops. I highly recommend this book.
i am obsessed with the us postal system and have been ever since i was a little girl. i once asked my mail carrier who had a red handle bar mustache if he took the letters i wrote to my grandmother all the way to new jersey. am i the only one who is mourning the very idea that saturday service might go away? talk about a bummer. for those of you who don’t know, i’ve been living in the same apartment for 11 years which means i’ve had time to develop relationships with my mail carriers. my old mailman bobby delivers in the hills now so i only see him when i’m hiking and we always stop to say hello. that kind of thing warms my heart. my new mail carrier albert and i became close because he admired my plumeria and brought me a cutting from one of his own japanese pink plumerias. that’s albert smiling next to the cutting he gave me that has grown some beautiful leaves and one day i hope will flower.
so here i present to you photos of what happened the day albert asked me if he could borrow a pipe i used to line my garden to gather up a spider for his spider hotel. you see, albert noticed a huge spider that was way high up in a tree. another photo is of him playing a yoyo game with said HUGE spider. he was so pleased to gather up this spider and add it to his collection. check out his spider hotel! he talked about being a boy and watching spiders fight with each other. another creepy factiod he told me was that if there were just three spiders like the one he caught in the tree in my apartment complex that would be enough to keep all 15 units bug free.
Just reblogging myself because this is one of my alltime favorite posts.
The Dalai Lama answered immediately. “The meaning of life is happiness.” He raised his finger, leaning forward, focusing on her as if she were the only person in the world. “Hard question is not, ‘What is meaning of life?’ That is easy question to answer! No, hard question is what make happiness. Money? Big house? Accomplishment? Friends? Or …” He paused. “Compassion and good heart? This is question all human beings must try to answer: What make true happiness?” He gave this last question a peculiar emphasis and then fell silent, gazing at her with a smile.
