Great advice from Steve Jobs

When you grow up you tend to get told the world is the way it is and you're life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family, have fun, save a little money.

That's a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you and you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use.

Once you learn that, you'll never be the same again.

A Kapiti Island Kaka.  I love how inquisitive they are and how they jump along the branches with zest.

Silky ... a caterpillar story.

Silky decided the moving section of the ranch slider window would be a good place to begin chrysalis preparations.  Luckily he was put off pretty quickly when the door was opened several times. 

I was intrigued to see the silk be laid down with big sweeping movements of his wee head.  These layers become the anchoring to hold the chrysalis on in strong winds etc.  The silk layer was really smooth to the touch.

Robot impressions are so 2008.
Not sure exactly what is going on and not sure I want to find out.
Karate with plants should not be considered a passtime.
I did paint the wall ... not sure it looks better though.
Hi YA!
