What is Evolution?

“We began as a mineral. We emerged into plant life, and into the animal state, and then into being human, and always we have forgotten our former states, except in early spring when we slightly recall being green again. That’s how a young person turns toward a teacher. That’s how a baby leans toward the breast, without knowing the secret of its desire, yet turning instinctively. Humankind is being led along an evolving course, through the migration of intelligences, and though we seem to be sleeping, there is an inner wakefulness that directs the dream, and that will eventually startle us back to the truth of who we are.”

All About My Mom




No not MY mom. Nancy Botwin [now Reyes], Shane's Mom.

Now anyone who knows me well and has been following this blog from it's inception knows that I love Weeds. [double meaning intended.]

Actually, if you scroll to the bottom of the page you'll find the lyrics and sheet music to the theme song for the first season...which is still classic BTW...they really need to bring it back.

Well in true form, Weeds has outdone itself once again with the finale of Season 5: Oh what a tangled web. Please believe me when I tell you that I was in complete and utter shock when I heard the clunk and saw Pilar fall into the pool. I then lapsed into a bout of temporary turrets when I saw Shane with the croquet mallet!!!

Shane Botwin is now officially my favourite character on Weeds (even though I still miss sexy ass Conrad). And as far as season finales go. This one is in my Top Ten.

And if you have no idea what I'm talking about then go right ahead and crawl back under the rock from whenceforth you came.

would most definately claat a bitch upside her head if she fucked with my family.

Our Deepest Fear by Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
