Our purple azalea is just about to burst into bloom.

The white one is a bit further behind, but coming soon.

I just love these …

We have never had a Spring garden quite like this before. It is such a pleasure to go outside, and see all the beautiful new flowers. I had no idea that there are so many varieties of daffodils, or that they smell so amazing! I bring in some cuttings every few days and it has really helped me focus on all the positive things that Spring represents.

Two beautiful little mochi, a sort of Japanese ice cream sandwich.


The true meaning of 42.

In the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, the supercomputer Deep Thought is built by a race of hyper-intelligent alien beings to determine the answer to “life, the universe, and everything.”  Deep Thought determines that the answer is, somewhat anticlimatically, “42.”  It sounds like a joke, but is there more to this answer?  Douglas Adams was an unabashed computer nerd and knew a heck of a lot about programming language and coding.  In programming, an asterisk is commonly used to translate as “whatever you want it to be”.  In ASCII language, the most basic computer software, “42” is the designation for an asterisk.  A computer, Deep Thought, was asked what the true meaning of life was.  It answered as a computer would.  42 = “anything you want it to be.”  Genius.

When little people are overwhelmed by big emotions, it’s our job to share our calm, not join their chaos.  L.R. Knost


So true, but also easier said than done, especially in the midst of a global pandemic.  Via @walkthetalkshow on Instagram.
