My Obscene Terrarium.

21 Jun

I want to thank you guys for all the kind words, thoughts, quotes and messages yesterday. You are so inspiring and you made me get all misty-eyed and verklempt. There’s so much beauty, joy and straight up courage in the world and I’m determined to find it. Even if I have to wear this little black cloud-hat at the moment.

Yesterday, I drank too much coffee, cried while driving and listening to Karen Sharp on KOST 103.5 (her favorite color is “the rainbow” for chrissakes. Of course I’m going to burst into tears, feeling sorry for myself) and was held hostage by I-134 West for an hour. But today’s a new one. My friend Jenn posted this on my Facebook and I love it:

Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying “I will try again tomorrow.” –Mary Anne Radmacher

Yes.

I promised to show you pics of this terrarium I made a couple weeks ago. It is still alive. Because it is a cactus. And, like a cat, it pretty much just wants to be left alone. For your reference, here is what I had in mind when I created the franken-rrarium:

And here’s what happened:

Look at the poor thing. Sitting forlornly by the window, wishing it could roam free like a normal cactus. Instead, it is stuck in its own little dirt-filled kiddie pool, too tall — and too…dildo-y — for its surroundings. (Sigh). I should replant it outside. And try a much smaller plant in the bowl.

Today, I have an audition where I get to dress like Farrah Fawcett. Tomorrow, I’m posting pics of the Los Angeles Magazine party I got to attend thanks to you, who voted for my cover design. You guys rock.

XX, L
