A highlight from 103 Organarchist Part 2
"Welcome to Oregon Rooted, I'm Higher Peaks, and this is Lady Sativa. You're listening to The Dirt Show, where we bring you Oregon's cannabis culture. Salt farming, basically. Nitrogen is a gas. How the fuck do you put nitrogen in a plant in a bag of powder? You've got a bag of powder, how the fuck is there a gas in that bag of powder? I'll explain it. You can bond a nitrate molecule to a salt molecule. Now, salt is just something that dissolves in water. So what happens is as soon as you put that compound that you've created into water, one salt molecule breaks off and then you have the nitrate. So you get that it's water soluble now. If you ever notice a bag of dry amendments, it's dry. But when you put it in water, it all goes away. So that's the salt molecule breaking off, making that gas basically available for plants to take up. That's how all salts work. It's how all synthetic nutrients work. Then you can use different things to bond different things to different things. But any time you do that, you're breaking off one piece of it that goes into the plant and then you're leaving something else that's just a byproduct and it's not desirable. And you can't avoid it. It only happens. It's not my opinion. It's how the fucking nutrients work. So over time, you develop a bunch of waste products. You don't buy the salt to throw in your soil. You buy the salt bound to the nitrogen to get the nitrogen. But half of that bag is shit you don't want in your soil, but you still do it anyway. That gets away from all of the needs for biology because you have a water soluble gas or you have water soluble rocks. And that's the only way to get rocks and gases that will go up into the roots. But there's a whole other way, the proper way. But you have to make everything water soluble or else they can't get into the plant. Microbes make rocks water soluble. So there are fungi and bacteria and protozoas and micro arthropods and insects that take organic matter and break it down smaller and smaller and smaller into the smallest part, which is the goo of life of these organisms. So imagine you have a gut full of rocks that you can digest. So you ate a bunch of rocks, they get digested and then they're in your stomach as a liquid. It's water soluble. And then somebody comes in, slices your abdomen open and that shit pours out. Those rocks are now water soluble and available. So that's what happens with microbes. It was hard for me to really believe it enough to bet my whole farm on it. But I knew it was true. But I didn't feed salts. I didn't do any of that shit. But I was like, man, it can't be gut juice and saliva. But it is. So that's the main issue with growers of any kind. In order to grow any plant, you have to know how they eat rocks, basically. And once you fully understand that, then you can start feeding plants properly. So like I was driving through, where was I driving through? I was coming back from the coast and there was this hill of clay, red clay. So I pull over, I get myself a jar of this clay and I'm going to top dress this clay into my soil. And it's like, OK, most counterintuitive shit. Most people are like, oh, my soil is all clay. I need to add organic matter. But then I've got pots that are only organic matter. So I'm going to add clay. And what happens with clay and the biology is clay is basically... No, it's this. There's a silica plate, a silica plate. And then between those two are all calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, all the things you could ever want in a plant. So what you have to do is break that bond open with biology. And now they're available. That's the cation exchange reaction. So they're mobile elements and biology does that. So it's like, once you understand that, people are like, oh, my whole field is clay. I don't know what to do. It's like, I never need to buy cow mag. Don't buy cow mag. Buy organic matter. So it's like it's mind blowing fucking shit. And so I understand why people will be like, don't trust that it really is micro guts and spit that does all this. I get it. But it is really it's really true. And I see it in practice. Like I had to break open some pots. I had one fifties in my back porch and I had to get down to four plants. You know, the whole thing I complain about. I can get four plants. So I had to refill my pots. I took like a bunch of the 150s, broke them down, filled these two hundreds. That soil did not perform anywhere near like my undisturbed pots. Right up in your face and can't argue about it. So basically, I broke the whole system, you know, like everything was perfect. They were like, I don't know, I'll go under like I'd say the like five or six year pots at the least. So I'm not like over exaggerating. They were cycling perfect. In three years, 150, 200 gallon pot, three years, that thing's going to be cycled. Like you have no problem with digesting whatever you throw at that pot. You're not going to have imbalances, everything. It's it's an ecosystem. But I broke that ecosystem and I noticed the repercussions for breaking that ecosystem. And it just pushed me right back into this like truth that, you know, that I can't stop talking about. And that's why I warned you all. Yeah. Well, so so with all that said, when you go from outdoor into indoor, you do the same shit. You have to. Can you do living soil in small pots? No. So so you have to have like what, two forty fives in your four by four. Yeah, pretty much. I mean, I get it. There's people that have four by four beds in there. Yeah, that's what I do. So four by four bed. Yeah. This is what you want to do. Make this simple as possible. Every pot has a death zone around the ring of the pot. So let's just say even in my 200 gals, four inches in from the smart pot fabric, no matter what, I can't maintain that death ring. Like there's an exchange of air and that's all good. That's fine. It's supposed to be there. So picture this, a 200 gallon smart pot, four inches on one side of death ring, four inches on the other. So eight inches of death ring. Let's say you have a five gallon pot. How wide is that pot? Ten, eleven inches. It's like all death ring. So you can't do living soil in that. You can't do living soil in anything under a forty five. Yeah. And like I can't lift a pot comfortably bigger than a forty five. So that's and I can't go smaller with living soil. So I dedicated these pots like forty five gallon smart pots, living soils, fuck, infinite cycles. I can't even count how many. I still have the pots and they crush. I bring them outside and grow outdoor. Then I bring them inside in the fall, in the winter and grow indoor. Yeah. And never disturb it. No. Yeah. No. And here's the thing. Here's the thing. It's a balance. It's the pots are balanced. So there's a balance of root feeding nematodes and there's a balance of predatory nematodes. So that's fine. The predatory nematodes are going to take care of any bullshit in the soil. I'm pretty sure they eat some violence and everything else. Nematodes are gnarly, beneficial nematodes. Check the mouth parts. That's how you know. So once you have that and then like any root aphid issues that are probably being there's a predator for every one of those things. We haven't really categorized every predator for every prey at the highest level. We're somewhat of a good idea. But the best thing you can do is trust nature. So when I put a forty five gallon smart pot outside with a cover crop. Bring it inside. I'm not like, what do you bring in Russets? Whatever I'm bringing in is it's it's bringing in the predator for that. Yeah. So you have to go by like triple threat and shit. Actually. Shout out to ladybug or organics. Phoenix. Yeah. They're fucking dope. Yeah. That triple threat son. Yeah. Those people are great. Triple threat. You have spider mites and flower throw the triple threat fucking banging or just do living soil and trust it. And you won't have any problems. Yeah. Like there's a predator for every pathogen and problem. Have you noticed anything this year? You know, for me, the last few years, you know, aphids have been considerable an issue. Thrips are always around. It's like they fucking just hang out and you're, you know, hey, we're here forever. But you have noticed anything this year? Like on your plants or hanging around? No. You then. Well, earwigs have been horrible. Oh, fuck. So that but like as far as like I don't really have. Like I'm not even knocking on wood. I don't really have a lot of pressure like in those regards. Like, well, you're not also I'm you know me, I'm stuck in fucking town. So I'm subject to like five neighbors and they're bullshit. Right. So that's the thing. So here's here's the deal is like I live like in a place. This is all organic pasture. Right. This is soil food web central. It's all cycling properly for 60 years. They don't till anything that it's all like the ultimate and no more hemp fields. Right. No, no hemp fields. I fucking I did great with them anyway. That was fine. But, you know, aphids ain't shit. You know, aphids ain't shit. No, they're fucking no problem, man. Like any soft body shit ain't shit. Like with outdoor, it's like that all the predators are there for all those problems. Thrips, man, they are fucking annoying ass motherfucker. They are. It's not like they do much damage. It's like, fuck, man. Like they're always just there. Yeah. Because here's what says you have your homie over. And you're like, hey, check out my plants. He's like, all right, I got the thrips. Fuck, you know, it's a first. That's the first thing I'd say, man. Looks like there is some thrips. You know, grow through it. It's no problem. Yeah. You know, but if you have thrips indoor, you're fucked. Yeah. But if you have thrips outdoor and shit. Right. And I'm always trimming off that shit anyway. Yeah. But shit will eat them. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It should be a balanced ecosystem of like, what about cats, though? What about caterpillars? You know, come on. You got to get 17 chickens. That's right. I have 17 chickens. Good fucking luck. Yeah. And those those are monsters. Yeah. Yeah. Very good. Oh, those things are savage. Yeah. They're iridescent. If I didn't know how healthy a land you had around here, I'd say you're fucking shooting those bitches up with steroids. They look like they're all jacked up. Yeah. The transgender one is the gnarliest. That one is fucking savage. Yeah. I have a transgender chicken. So how do you how did you figure that out? Well, it goes. In the morning and then it tries to get it on with ladies. Oh, yeah. I see. That's transgender. Cool. Totally. It identifies. Well, if he's comfy with who we see. Yeah, it is. That's the hard thing about chickens. I don't know. I don't know. Pronoun for chicken. True. So I just call it transgender. And it does it nice to you. It's got a lot of testosterone, man. The thing contries me. You know, it's like really was born like it's really born confused. That can be jacked up hormones, man. My rooster won't really fuck with it. My rooster won't fuck it. Rooster won't fuck it. Nah, I'm good. It's like, I'm good. Do butch for me. I watch this shit all the time. Oh, my God. Nature don't lie, dude. But yeah, to the flock of chickens, man, they fucking take shit out. Earwigs are a problem because the chickens go to bed and that earwigs come out. So it's like. But that's when you have a little frogs and shit or whatever. Yeah. But earwigs have been a pain in the ass. But that's the main thing about the earwigs, in my opinion, is if we irrigate enough. They fucking drowned out because they're fucking dumb as shit when it comes to water. They'll just go in the water and drown. Yeah. They're like suicidal. Like if I leave any water out, they just like a whole bucket of earwigs, you know, so it's not hard to get them. So if we you know, the drought brought a lot of that. It's a problem. You know, the hemp brought in all the aphids. Exactly. And so and then they'd like probably spray weird shit. Yeah. If it's a dip, you know, like going from like Safeway to the co -op. Yeah. Coming over here because I'm spraying. Yeah. Spray with fucking Karanja. Yeah. I saw a post about that. What what's the deal? Do people forget about that stuff or what? Yeah. It's like, what? I forgot about it. I'm like, dude, I've been using that for a minute. My G. Yeah, man. I'm like. I felt obligated to remind some motherfuckers because I was like making Karanja memes for work. Yeah, you were. I saw that. I know, dude. You don't ever get in trouble. Every week. Every week, dude, I almost get fired. I'm not even kidding. You're my hero, man. Dude, I almost get fired every week. It's. Oh, I had. Well done. Oh, yeah. But Karanja is the jam. But yeah. Oh, yeah. But yeah, I heard hella people's feelings like a bunch of times. And like like the owners of like the largest like farming distribution companies. I can't like even say the names of them. Like the biggest ones you all know. They like personally messaged. We're like, man, you need to take that shit down. And like I almost got fired. Wow. Every Friday for like a month. They're like, please. Yeah. Yeah. And then I was like, oh, where? Watch this. Yo, and then I almost got fired for that. Yeah, I was like, oh, man, fucking kid safe mother approved memes. You know, I had like really healthy African -American gentleman like holding the 10 millimeter socket being like, oh, isn't it challenging that we always lose these? And I was like, yeah, I can't get fired for that. And dude, I almost did. Yeah. Yeah. Don't become a meme admin. That shit is not fun. Yeah, it sucks. Oh, dude. Been slapped on the wrist a few times. But it's cool because like really I'm just like I'm making some jokes and shit, but you can slide in really cool information into it. Like I clown salts as a motherfucker. You know which one I love the most? Tell me. Is your... Oh, God. The one the meme that you made that was the living fucking... Living Rockwell? Rockwell. Dude, I fucking, I died on that for 10 minutes. You know what? I reposted that to my story. I actually had someone message me saying, how did you get living fucking Rockwell? Oh, yeah. Yeah. I photoshopped that shit. I'm done. I'm done. Yeah. Dude, somebody hit me up. I can't answer. Somebody hit me up there like it's technically it's no -till. You're like, yeah, it is. But yeah, it's like I'm having fun with it because like I say, man, I have an agenda. There's an agenda behind everything I fucking do. Organarchist is a real thing. Right. This is like some like but it's more like the Illuminati behind the scenes. Like you got some Illuminati memes and shit. You know that deep, deep fucking meaning. Oh, totally. Yeah, it's like it's jokes. But like that shit's all real. Are you getting the point? Oh, dude, like some of them, I can't even talk about how real they are, dude. Like all I do is hang out with a bunch of people that are like, like I can't even believe it. Like all the industry people. Like I'm like rubbing elbows with them and they like talk to me and I'm like, holy fucking crap, dude. And so I make memes out of them, dude. And like almost get fucking fired. I imagine you spend a lot of time trying to turn the botsoil into living soil for people. Is that a good assumption? Oh, yeah. Well, here's the thing. Look, buy this now and build it later or build it now. You've got to start somewhere. Sure. So you've got to have peat. You've got to have cocoa. You've got to have some compost. You've got to have some perlite or pumice. I mean, the fucking, what are you going to do? Like you need like large biomass to start soil. Or like if you're doing like amending native soil straight out the gate, like no beds, no till. Then, you know, you're like buying tarps or something like whatever. But like I feel good about like being able to provide people with like the bases for things. Man, why not have a dope ass season right out the gate as you're waiting the three years to have a full cycle. Sure, sure. Absolutely. Like you said, you've got to start. You've got to start. So if you want to go into it, be like, you know what? I'm a masochistic motherfucker and I just love to fail for the sake of my integrity. Dude, don't ever call a soil company. Don't ever plug into it. Just go do your thing. I fully support you, man. But like if you're going to farm, like you want results. So it's like you're going to put a lot of effort into something and then it's nice to have some results. So you buy something that's like has everything that you've ever wanted it anyway. Like not to like shameless plug, but I'm going to fucking plug the real shit. If you ever want to start a living soil pot, bed, anything with like, you know, purchased soil. Rogue farmer relaunched. It's got every single fucking thing. It's going to sound like a commercial. I don't do fucking go to the website and look and you're going to be like, holy crap, dude. The kitchen sink is in there. There's shit that you wouldn't even think to throw in there. There's shit that is in there that in 10 years you'll be like, man, I'm glad I learned to throw this shit in there. Yeah, absolutely. Like for real. What kind of base is it? Is it cocoa or beet? Both. Oh, yeah. And compost and cow shit that's been sterilized. Like this is all laboratory made. So, I mean, of course, as soon as you open the bag, it's, you know, susceptible to everything. But at least you get to start with something, especially for indoor people. Like if you want to do indoor living soil. Yeah. Then you want to have science. A clean start. And then intentionally introduce things. Because you don't want to start off an ecosystem by like rolling some fucking dice. Like you can. Yeah. But again, if you want instant results. Then you can you can mitigate that problem and still go in the direction. Like I said, I started my whole greenhouse, amended living soil with rocket fuel. Yeah. Because I wanted to throw in a bunch of ice cream. And that's a little hot, right? The rocket fuel runs a little hot. No, it's just has. You can put seedlings in there. Oh, fuck yeah, dude. OK. Yeah. Just curious. Oh, yeah, totally. Oh, I mean, I'm not that. It's crazy. But so I just I started with that because I wanted results right away. And I got them. And then I got to pay for the whole greenhouse. And now it's all living soil, mulched, amended and like cycling properly. You know. Sure. So you got to start somewhere or don't plant a cover crop. And as the little baby shoots start to come up, tarp it. Let it all die back. Throw another cover crop, plant daikon radishes and pull the radishes and then put compost in there. I mean, I can tell you in one DM how to like do it in like probably two years. Like, you know, like real out as like native land, like regenerating. But you're not going to get any results. Yeah. Right. I knew a guy that was like all no till. Everyone knows this guy. And if he hears this, he's going to be like, I'm that guy. And it's cool because he's like, man, fucking no till sun. I'm going to go out there. I'm just going to mulch and amend some native Applegate soil. Throw them right in the holes with like one gal of like, you know, their transplant soil and run it. I'm not even doing shit. And I was like, yeah. Yeah. Failed at the highest level. Yeah. Yep. And then he was like, man, I probably should have told it. And I'm like, yeah, no, not that either.
Meet Leslie Guity: The Inspiring "Hope Pusher" With an Extraordinary Journey
"We're bringing on the one and only certified hope -pusher, Ms. Leslie Guitti, is in the building with me this evening, you there? Yes, I'm here. I am, she is here, and one of her favorite colors is orange, and so when I did the flyer, she was like, well, can we change the flyer to orange? I said, well, no, you know, I like to exercise my no, I said, well, you know, purple is my color and my brand color, I said, but there's orange in there, so I am so excited to have you on the show. She is, you know, her family is from Honduras, but I just found out today she's what you call a welcome to America, baby, which I had never heard that term before. She has written, at this point, self -published four books, Music is Key, I Am 25, which I can't wait to hear a little bit more about that story. She also has a joke book called The Jokes Are on You, and she just recently wrote a brand new book, which I am so excited to learn more about and to read, which is Are You on the Right Track? So, Leslie, welcome to Conversations with Coach Love. Thank you for having me. I'm loving those spectacles. Oh, thank you so much. She's all decked out in arm and jaws, for all of the people that's tuning in from YouTube and iHeartRadio, she has all arm and jaw on, and she just looks amazing. Thank you so much. Tell me, Leslie, what is something that you want the listeners to know? Who is Leslie? Hi, I'm Leslie Guidi, and I am an author, I am a singer, I am a poet, I am a jokester, I am a mother, I am a grandmother, and I am sent, a prophetess sent from God to help people. And I have a poem that I wrote in my book Are You on the Right Track, and it's called I Am Becoming. All right. This basically explains who I am. Born into the world, a black girl of parents of Honduran descent, father came to soil foreign to him long ago, not recent, to make a home for his family, what bravery. Here I am, one who was created by God, came into being via my mother's belly, filled with medical issues, can't see, can't breathe, can't stand up straight. They told me I can't have babies, have vivid dreams, can read people's mind, growing up knowing that I was one of a kind, I am becoming. I can see sickness and disease, I know liars and deceivers, and they know me and back away from me. I can feel babies coming and also smell death like an ugly duck into a swan, like a caterpillar to a butterfly, I am becoming. Highly sensitive because of the lightning bolt shooting through my body, rays of sunshine in, out, and around me, the misunderstood, the misunderstood, the misunderstood. Music playing in my inner being, a constant drum beat, words, violin, harp, and the trumpet sound, piano playing inside of me, so I go and touch the piano keys I am becoming. Languages in my spirit, Spanish, speaking another tongue, Haitian and Cape Verde Creole, translating for all, dancing around, causing walls to fall, watch out y 'all because I am becoming. Rivers and streams flowing out of me, visions and dreams are coming to be, spinning world, nut and squirrel, spiritual gifts God gave to every boy and girl, understand the animals, understanding the swaying of the trees, adequate is not me, I am extraordinary, I am becoming. Don't mean to boast, don't mean to offend, just trying to ride this thing called life gracefully to the end, doing all that God intends for me to do because I am becoming.
"caterpillar" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"All right, what in the holy heck are you talking about? Oh, well, let me explain, Chuck. It turns out that butterflies, while being pretty hardy individuals, at least as far as insects are concerned on that level, they're also very delicate, like we talked about with their wings. And even beyond their wings, getting like a raindrop driving through it, that can happen, or say like strong wind pattering it, that's a big problem for a butterfly. Just the temperature, the ambient temperature, has a tremendous effect on them. Not just because they're ectotherms, meaning they're like a lizard, they rely on the ambient temperature to warm themselves or cool themselves off. Their just muscles simply will not function when it drops below a certain temperature. Yeah, I think Tracy points out they work best when their internal temperature is about 82 Fahrenheit, 28 Celsius, and they use these wings for flying, which is great, but you might think like, oh, it's no big deal if it's cold, they just kind of hunker down. But they also use these wings to do all kinds of cool things, like namely to scare away predators. They can do all sorts of, like they can make eyes where it looks like a scary face, kind of like their little caterpillar former selves can look like snakes. They can flash these bright colors that a lot of times say get away predator. And if they can't move their wings, it's not just that they can't fly, but they can't defend themselves or disguise themselves. So it means that when it's cold outside or when it's too windy or rainy or something, then they're way more vulnerable to prey. For sure. Or as prey. Right. But even prey could probably get them, that's how vulnerable they are. For sure. So you'll often see like butterflies is kind of basking in the sun. I've always wondered what they're doing, like they just seem like they don't know what to do next. That's how it's always struck me for some reason. They're thinking of their next move.
"caterpillar" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"That's a lot of eyes. They can see into your soul. And that's why they, maybe that's why they're so great at migrating every year in such large numbers. I think we talked about in our animal migration episode, we talked about monarch butterfly migration. And I think we said one of the reasons why they're able to make it from Eastern Canada all the way down to Northwest Mexico is because they navigate using UV. They see in the UV. Yeah, it's that sun. And that kind of brings me back around to antennae. Oh, good. These things are amazing. They get their sense of direction from the position of the sun. So they are literally navigating by the position of the sun. The antennae also act as light receptors, obviously to track the sun. They're highly attuned to odors. Those antennae are great smellers. They sense pheromones during times of mating. And they can even sense these antennae, the beat of wings of butterflies of the same species during mating season. Wow, that's amazing. Just the antennae? Just the antennae. Wow. How about the labial palps? Well, yeah, those are, if you look at a closeup of a butterfly and they can take kind of different positions, but usually I've seen them, they look like kind of little hairy tusks coming out. Coming out of what, Chuck? Coming out of their head, well, near their mouth parts. Yep, ding ding. Okay. It's now officially a Tracy Wilson article. That's right. So they apparently are like, this is food, this isn't food, this is food. But they don't eat with the labial palps. It's just a way of sensing food. What they eat with is their proboscis. And that's the long kind of tongue -like appendage that they suck nectar with. That's right. I got one more thing on the labial palps though. Oh, okay. They've kind of surmised that it detects food, that the function is fairly unknown, but I think they've learned, I'm not sure how recently, that they can, those labial palps detect CO2 in the air.

If you didn't, you might want to, because it really, you know, without caterpillar, there is no butterfly episode. Yeah, I feel like they could stand on their own, like I don't think you have to have listened to one to understand what we're gonna talk about here. No, no, no, but you know, we're probably gonna say when it comes time to talk about how the caterpillar turns into a butterfly, just go back in time to two days ago and listen to that one. Right, we'll be like, doodle -doo, doodle -doo, doodle -doo. And once again, we have to thank howstuffworks .com and

"I couldn't quite, couldn't quite make it. But they, so they pollinate, they're a food source. And most caterpillars, although all of them eat leaves, and again, like we said, they're eating machines, the amount of damage they're doing is really kind of pales in comparison to the benefits you get from having them in your ecosystem. So for the most part, you wanna just leave them alone. Yeah, I mean, there's a whole section, if you're interested, on how to kill and get rid of caterpillars at howstuffworks .com in this article, but I don't even feel like talking about it, to be honest.

"Right, and then so once that happens, once the cocoon is full or the chrysalis is hardened, one of the most amazing things on Earth happens in there. And it's neat because we've gotten to the point where we have photography that can peer inside of this without harming the caterpillar. And they have like time -lapse videos of this transformation. And as the thing turns more and more into what's obviously like a butterfly or a moth and you see it hanging upside down, just forming, it looks like a cross between an H .R. Geiger painting and Michael Crichton's coma, the movie version. It's really neat, but it also gives you this, it has this kind of regal and majestic feel to it as well. It produced a lot of emotions in me apparently. Yeah, I mean, this isn't the sciency explanation, but it's almost as if you can take a tray of, put a bunch of spaghetti and meatballs in a dish and cover it up, and then when you open it up, it's a lasagna. Yeah. And you're like, how did that happen? Like, how did that even happen? So this is how it happens. The caterpillar breaks itself down into a soup of cells. Like it's basically like a caterpillar soup for a while. And some of the cells keep their form generally or at least stay attached to one another. So those leg cells, they change, they look different. Like a caterpillar's actual true legs look different from the butterfly's true legs, but they're still the same cells. They rearrange themselves a little bit. Most of the other cells just completely come apart, turn into imaginal cells, which are analogous to our stem cells, and that they can turn into any kind of cell. And then it reconfigures itself using the same cells, same amount, same everything, into a butterfly. It reconfigures itself over the course of about two weeks. It's unbelievable. It really is.

"Them before. Oh yeah, they're like big tents basically. If you've seen big, you know, looks like sort of a really dense spider web, I guess sometimes those are spiders, right? Yeah, there's some kinds of spiders that do that, but I think probably more often than not what you're seeing are gregarious caterpillars getting together. Yeah, but they also use their little spinnerets as like a trail, like hey, we're all going this way and we're going to lay this little trail and we know that if you want to get home, this is how you get home. What's neat is those trails are often intergenerational, and so like an older generation will leave that silk for the next generation to use, and that next generation then can grow bigger and stronger because they didn't have to use that energy to create the silk that leads to the food source. I thought that was pretty nice. Yeah, like hand -me -down silk. Yeah, exactly. Or like, you know, a length of rope that grandpa gave you. Yeah, same thing. Hand -me -down silk, length of rope from grandpa. What else? There's another thing too that we haven't quite figured out, and we I mean the entomology world, and by we I also mean them, that it may or may not be advantageous to live in a gregarious community as opposed to being solitary, because yes, it's easier to build a big shelter for yourself if you have a bunch of other friends helping you. It's easier to find food if you have other people looking at the same time you are and then telling you what they found, but at the same time you're also competing with those same people, or those same caterpillars I should say, and that can be a big problem too. Yeah, caterpillars are people too. Exactly. And if there's a disease, you know, it's going to spread pretty readily within that population, if they're all living together, but I think, you know, we've held off long enough, we should talk about that metamorphosis, which is what everyone wants to know about, and that is basically a caterpillar is doing its thing, it's going through those molts, it's that fifth molt,

"They can deter things that want to eat caterpillars because a lot of times these things carry little irritants and toxins and you just put a pin in that for our very final segment at the end. Yeah, put a satay in that. You can get little irritated bumps sometimes if you handle the wrong caterpillar. You shouldn't handle a caterpillar. It can get much worse than that, too. Yeah, if you've ever touched a caterpillar, that's what I was referring to earlier, like as a kid I remember touching one and just being like, oh my God, what just happened? And it hurt very badly, I remember distinctly. But I still love caterpillars after that. I remember there was one kind, and someone will know what kind this is, but I think it was sort of yellow and black and we would put our fingie on the ground and the caterpillar would crawl up our hand and then we would get a leaf and have it crawl off. So I don't think we harmed the caterpillar. We were just letting it kind of crawl on us for a minute. And I wasn't touching the spine, so I never got that irritation, but I used to love doing that. And I just thought that was so cool that they've, I guess now knowing that they're blind, they're just like crawling on a stick and it's like, now I'm crawling on a finger. Right. Yeah, that's cute. But yeah, you wouldn't have been touching the hair like structures, so it would have stung you. It's not like, I don't think it's an active process. I think it's a passive thing where you just touch it and they're not like, die, die, die. It's just like, you just touched it and it did its thing passively. Yeah. I get the feeling the caterpillar is even like, sorry, man. You know, shouldn't touch me, but sorry. Most caterpillars seem rather chill, but not all of them are. I was not happy to find this out. I find this rather unpleasant, but there's some species of caterpillars in Hawaii that are actually carnivores.

"Did they really? No, no. Oh, okay. They don't have bones, of course, but they do have lots, they're very muscly. If you compare them to a human, we have about 629 muscles. Caterpillars have 4 ,000 muscles, because those muscles, that's the way they're moving, you know? They move in a little wave from front to back. Front to back? Yes. Front to back. Back to front? Back to front. How did I mess that up? Well, it depends on which direction they're going, I guess. Well, I guess so. And they move in a couple of ways. One of two ways is sometimes they're crawling, which means they're moving all of those prolegs and legs at the same time in sequence, or they do what it sounds like an inchworm does, right? Yeah. I don't know why they didn't identify them as inchworms, but that's what they're talking about. They can move in little arches where they bring their front and their back together, making a mound out of their middle, their abdomen, and then they stretch the front out, and then they bring the back up, and then they stretch the front out. That's what an inchworm does, and that's basically one of two ways the other way for a caterpillar to move, either as a wave undulating, there's a lot of really cool videos of caterpillars moving or inching along. Yeah, and I never looked close enough at an inchworm to figure out why they move that way, and I feel like a dummy now because it seems obvious. They move that way because their middle section doesn't have legs. It's pretty cool. So the front pulls the back because those are where the legs are, and the legs go, let me catch up. It's like a little cute accordion. And it's really neat to see when you watch a close -up of a centipede, or I keep wanting to say centipede, but that's definitely a different animal. A caterpillar's pro -legs moving, as they attach themselves, like you said they have a suction cup, they just attach themselves to the branch or

"Yeah, I mean, everything about butterflies are just great, okay, I'm on board with them fully. But yeah, that thing, I mean, it starts eating, it eats its way out of the egg, then it says, well, I'll just eat the rest of the egg, and you know what, I'm going to go ahead and eat this leaf that the egg is sitting on as well while I'm at it. And they said, wow, I really like eating, maybe I should just keep eating for the rest of my life. Yeah, each one suddenly turns into Augustus gloop and just keeps going from there. That's exactly right. So I said that it molts, apparently it molts five different times. And the reason why it molts is because it eats so much, it outgrows its skin. It's amazing. It has a mechanism where it releases an enzyme, there's a hormone that says, hey, you're getting a little, your clothes are getting a little tight, maybe it's time to mold. And so that releases an enzyme that basically dissolves its attachment to the exoskeleton. And then the new, bigger version pops out of the old exoskeleton, walks away, and guess what it does immediately after? It starts eating again. Yeah, it tries to outgrow that suit that it's wearing. And it does that five times in its larval stage as a caterpillar. Yeah, these molts are called instars, did you say that? That's the period of its life between molts. Yeah, yeah. So five instars in between molts, like you said, all it's doing is just eating, trying to get a larger suit size. But here's a very, another cool fact, is they believe that not only do caterpillars have a memory that lasts like a molt or two, but they even think, there are researchers at I don't know how you sort of prove something, but they feel pretty good about the fact that they think that a butterfly remembers being a caterpillar. Yeah, they've done at least one study that showed that if they trained it to avoid certain smells as one of its last instars, it will remember that as an adult butterfly, that it'll avoid those same smells.

"Which is shocking. We've done one... We did the wings, like the iridescence. Okay, that's what it was. Yeah, and we talked about them in the animal migration episode too. Yeah, but not a standalone on butterflies, so we're going to talk about their counterpart, and one of the facts of the episode already for me is that caterpillars that eventually turn into butterflies, it's the same species. It's still the same thing. Right. Never knew that. We should do a two... You didn't? I just figured it, like, well now it's something else, like entirely. Huh. But did you know about the transformation in the chrysalis or cocoon and everything? Did you know they did that? Oh, sure. Okay. I knew how it happened, but I thought it was like presto change -o, now you're not whatever Latin name you are, you're a new Latin name. Oh, gotcha. So, like, they just became a completely different animal, basically, or a different insect. Yeah. Okay, I gotcha. Yeah, no, they're the same thing, they're just configured differently. Yeah, they got wings. Like a transformer. More than that. They go from boombox to robot with a gun. That's right. You know? But in a much more organic, soupy way, as we'll see. Ew. I love this one, Chuck, like every kid knows about caterpillars, you go look at them in the garden and everything, and they're super cute and weird looking, and you learn the hard way not to touch some of them, but I did not know a lot of this stuff either, and it's endlessly fascinating to me, especially if you step back and think about a life stage where an organism undergoes such a complete transformation that their cells, they break themselves down to their cells, and then are rebuilt into a new version. Not that many animals do that, and scientists aren't exactly sure how or even why that evolved, although why is kind of teleological, but how that evolved, it's just this really bizarre thing that we're so aware of, we kind of just take for granted until you really stop and think about it.
"caterpillar" Discussed on 60-Second Science
"Some caterpillars have evolved with an antifreeze in their body cavities, allowing them to become cater popsicles to survive cold winters. But climate change could threaten that. There are caterpillars that have been reported to be put into an ice cube and frozen, and then when the ice cube melts, they can get up and walk away. You may have seen them scooting around on leaf litter in the fall. Their furry rotund and famous for their rumored weather forecasting skills. I'm talking about the woolly bear caterpillar, or Isabella Tiger moth. These little creatures have an orange waistband stripe, whose width is rumored to predict how long winter might be. And while this is based in colonial folklore, not science, what is scientifically amazing is how the woolly bear caterpillar is able to survive winter. I'm Kate furby, and you're listening to, science quickly. Unlike humans and other mammals, caterpillars can't regulate their body temperatures, and unless they burrow or cocoon, their subject to the wind and rain. The woolly bear caterpillar like its name is covered in a spiky looking fuzz. And those hairs might think of as a little down jacket for the caterpillar to wear, and I'm sure that they do provide a little bit of insulation. That's doctor Martha Weiss, a biologist and professor at Georgetown university, who studies plant insect interactions. She says that the spiky little caterpillar jacket has a specific use, but not what you might think. Those hairs are thought to have evolved as a way to protect the categories against predators, and maybe against parasitoids that want to lay their eggs inside the caterpillar's body. Yikes, that is a super powered little jacket actually. But here's the caterpillar's dilemma. The main thing is that it gets really cold. And they have a lot of water in them and they can freeze. And so they need to be able to deal with freezing temperatures, and while the famous furry jacket provides protection, it doesn't provide the kind of insulation woolly bear caterpillars need for a hard Chicago winter. What they do is a little more biochemical. They have more biochemical tricks up their sleeves and so far as can pillars could be said to have sleeves. Oh wow, they would have to have like 16 little sleeves. But okay, what are their options for survival? They can also do biochemical things in physiological things to make it less likely that they will turn into an ice cube. So what some of those caterpillars do is they use. Antifreeze, they basically make compounds like glycerol that they put into their cells. In case you're not familiar with glycerol, it's a natural alcohol compound. It works similarly to when we salt city sidewalks to keep them from becoming icy. The compounds in the woolly caterpillar's body lower its freezing point, buying it some time. And then they do something even more remarkable. They move water out of their cells so that it freezes in the extracellular space. That's because water, of course, gets bigger when it turns to ice. And so it shall sell was filled with water and it throws and it would bust the cell membrane and that would really harm the caterpillars so getting the water out of the cell is a good idea and lowering the temperature at which the liquid freezes is also a good idea. So these little guys can freeze solid all winter and then thaw out and get up and walk away come spring. And they can actually freeze and thaw multiple times over the course of a winter. But there's an energetic cost that comes to falling asleep and waking back up again. Studies of the Isabella Tiger moth have shown that they can, in fact, undergo several freeze thaw cycles, but it's really not great for them. It's better if they can freeze, stay frozen and then thaw at the end of the winter. And not only that. I think there's also some damage that happens to some of the structures in the caterpillar. Some of the more delicate parts I think can be damaged a little bit and the more time they have to freeze thaw and refreeze the more likelihood that they'll be a little worse for war at the end of the winter. And this gets worse because of things like climate change. If we have winter heat waves or warm periods when caterpillars that hadn't been in the deep freeze, thaw out and then freeze again, there was some concern that they would be able to go back and forth between these conditions. That will also lead to larger ecological implications. Caterpillar populations and therefore butterfly or moth populations can take a hit if the overwintering survival is interfered with by these interludes of warmer weather that prevent them from getting through their wintering period in the same way that they had before. And that might have more profound impacts than we think. We already know that some important pollinators, like bees and butterflies, are struggling to survive due to all kinds of human activities. Caterpillars are important just because they're such cool animals, but they also are a phase of the life cycle of lepidopterans. So moths and butterflies, they are pollinators, they're herbivores, they're food for birds and other organisms, and they're just part of what makes the world fun to look at and live in. For scientific Americans, science quickly, I'm Kate furby..

So when it comes to the tech stocks in our analysts are thinking headline risk, but just make sure you follow the process and note that a lot of this is just not going to ever see the light of day. Headline risk, yes, some of the others I mentioned, billionaire tax stock buyback levy, not realistic to see the light of day, which brings us back to your headlines short on investment catalysts. Does infrastructure bring news to Wall Street at all. We've heard so many references to these projects when we hear earnings reports from the caterpillars and deers of the world. There could be other industries obviously telecom included that could benefit from a lot over the next couple of years. Yeah, exactly. So the infrastructure, the way to think about infrastructure is that you had trillions of dollars, billions of dollars sent out to industries. The way that the infrastructure, the inflation reduction act, and then previously the investment in infrastructure and jobs act works is that it doles out money to certain agencies and sectors. It takes 18 months to 24 months to get that through the cycle. And so we're just now starting to see the economic impact of these funds that came out from the last year. So you're not going to see anything new, but to your point about caterpillar and all these other companies, you know, we previously identified a 110 companies that would stand to benefit from this bill and those benefits will go over the next 5 to 7 years. The biggest concern from the infrastructure side though is that when it comes to the debt ceiling fight, there is this thought we're going to have to cut funds And if there is funds that have not been allocated and not been used, then they are actually at risk of being used or taken. So keep that in mind. A lot to keep in mind, Nathan, thank you for coming in and we should do this more often. Nathan dean, a senior government analyst Bloomberg intelligence. Genie Chan xana, what do you make of that? The idea of cutting this precious infrastructure spending that, you know, he was the first president since FDR to be able to come up with this not about to cut it, is he? You know, it's hard to believe he is because you heard him at the annual winter meeting in Philadelphia and he spent some time touting the biggest investment in infrastructure since I think he's talking Eisenhower. So the idea that he would cut it is hard to imagine, but the reality is he wants to not just tout what he's done and he's had an enormous number of legislative accomplishments. He also wants to differentiate himself from the Republicans, and I think that's where that conversation may arise because he's going to say very clearly, I believe, I'll protect Medicare, social security. I won't let them pass the 30% national sales tax. I don't want that to let them ban the right to choose. So if it comes down to it and he wants to be seen as being careful with the budget and careful with the deficit, he may say things that are not spent on infrastructure should go back. So we may see some of that, but you know, it is a big accomplishment of his, so I think he wants to be able to keep saying that. You do wonder how much of this speech is going to be looking back taking credit, victory

We talked to Chris Jalen of Bloomberg intelligence on which company stand to make billions. Caterpillar being the market leader and then there's also komatsu a Japanese player who's has a large position in construction equipment here in the U.S.. They're the biggest beneficiaries just from a scale perspective. But there's also numerous other companies that will benefit from this if you think about some of the aerial equipment makers, like a terrorist and an OshKosh, don't forget dear dear has a large construction business and growing. They made an acquisition of Wirtgen a number of years back, which got them into road paving equipment and then C and H industrial as well also has a construction business. So it certainly will benefit the group overall, but if you're thinking about the large players here, it's caterpillar and komatsu. And they've just got multiyear backlogs now, right? Or are they still learning exactly what it's going to look like for the next few years? You know, we just had caterpillar report this week and interesting we saw orders and backlogs increase not only a year over year, but sequentially. The man remains very strong We're over, I think, 30 billion now in the backlog for caterpillar. This is above average production visibility. And it's really been constrained by the supply chain. The supply chain is improving, but there are still bottlenecks out there and manufacturing efficiencies of getting product out the door. So that should improve as the year progresses and maybe that potentially delays some of the financial impact of this infrastructure law. But I think it's more of a timing issue than anything.

So it sets it up as quite interesting. Well, let's take a look at one of the big stories of the day in addition to caterpillar and that is Amazon. It may not be such a Merry Christmas. The ecommerce giant said its sales for the current quarter will be between a 140 and a $148 billion analysts were estimating a 156 billion. Amazon has been dealing with a pullback in consumer spending. As a result, revenue from the prior quarter also missed projections. In the meantime, Amazon reported operating expenses jumped nearly 18% up to a $125 billion. It was the 5th straight quarter where expenses increased faster than revenue growth did. Amazon shares traded down about 12 and a half percent in the after hours session. Apple delivered just good enough news in its quarterly report to avoid the fate of most of the tech giants this earnings season. iPhones and services were a bit softer than expected last quarter, but apple's revenue and profit both topped analyst estimates. Here's Mark gurman. So the iPhone S was about $400 million. These services missed us about $800 million. So we're not talking crater of an issue here. But investors and analysts always looking for more, right? But I think all things considered given what we've seen from meta from Google from Amazon earlier today. This is a pretty remarkable report. They've clearly dodged the tech route here. The company did say that growth wouldn't be as strong in the upcoming holiday quarter, but investors found enough optimism to send the stock higher in late trading. Apple shares ending at one 44 80.

Meet Dr. Maya: "La Mariposa Guerrera"
"My name is Dr. Maya. I am known as La Mariposa Guerrera, the warrior butterfly. I think this name found me soon after I understood and accepted my calling to disrupt and dismantle the particular structural oppression they call the patriarchy. You see, unique to the day I was born is that it fell on what they call the cusp of revolution. I embody and express traits of both Sagittarius and Scorpio. My elements are fire and water. To know me is to understand what the cusp of revolution can be in a person. I was born the year that a 25 -year -old woman adventurer, explorer, and nature devotee born Catalina Aguado and Sierra Chincua in the Mexican state of Michoacán together with her then -husband Kenneth C. Brugger discovered the overwintering sites of the monarch butterfly migration in central Mexico. The land of my maternal ancestors, some 1 ,500 miles from my birthplace. The site is in a volcanically active region, the Trans -Mexican Volcanic Belt. Are you beginning to see this fire connection? Catalina saw millions of brilliant orange and white monarchs roosting within a forest of oyamel fir trees, abies relijosa, native to the mountains of central and southern Mexico. The trees are named for the religious Christian cross formed at the branch tip. Catalina and Brugger saw millions of monarch butterflies, blanket trees that stood 82 to 164 feet tall with a trunk thickness of over six feet at a high altitude of 7 ,874 feet to 11 ,811 feet and spanning 20 by 40 miles across the mountainous forest. Brugger described it as the eighth wonder of the world. Let's get into that. Arriving in this world before the modern human, the evolution of monarch butterflies have formed a collective of God consciousness that you can witness and learn from in the beginning of a monarch butterfly. It must first complete three life cycle stages within 40 to 50 days. First they are an egg, which then becomes larva, commonly referred to as a caterpillar. The caterpillar spins itself into a protective casing, the chrysalis, where it radically transforms itself to then emerge as an adult butterfly. Scientific research suggests that less than 2 % of the eggs that are laid make it through all three stages to adulthood. The egg, the larva and the chrysalis must survive both environment and predators. Three major life challenges to successfully complete in less than two months and a survival rate of less than 2 % just to become what they were always meant to be, the monarch butterfly. The monarch was not born into itself, it was born into struggle before it could become an adult and begin its life's work.

Taking the Exquisite Risk': An Undefended Heart
"One of the metaphors for spiritual transformation that we hear a lot is that we're like a caterpillar in a cocoon and that the awakening comes as we feel the sense of the cocoon and realize it's time to Go beyond and then we into a butterfly and fly into freedom. And it's really actually very useful metaphor individually and as a species in the sense that you know we live in this familiar. Cocoon of our ego thoughts and behaviors and so on and they serve us the cocoon service earlier stages of development and then at the time comes to go beyond and if we don't the cocoon creates a pressure and we start getting more more squeeze because we're living in to small space for growing spirit and so that pressure is a reminder to take the chance and break open and it's damaging if we don't it's arrested development it's even more useful if you think of it in terms of as for these for these humans that we are. It's not a one shot that were continually waking up out of a cocoon of illusion cocoon of limiting beliefs. Cocoon of in some way behaviors. That are keeping us small that it's a continual ongoing process of coming into contact with a wider reality so it's like shedding skin and each round that we shed a skin we become more that vulnerability you know the new skins more porous than the old skin.

AJ Had a Fascination With 'Freaks' as a Kid
"I had a fascination with freaks as a kid. You know, Siamese twins and fat people and short people, people in the arms and legs. My father had these stories about all the freaks he saw at Coney Island. He was a kid, Coney Island, Brooklyn, on the boardwalk, they were freak shows. You play a nickel you walk in, you see the Siamese twins, you see the dog faced girl. Always create the guy who rolled cigarettes with his lips 'cause his hands and arms and legs were gone. Caterpillar man, crazy people. The world's tallest man married to the world's fattest woman, that kind of shit. So I'm ten years old or so, and I saw a book. There was a catalog back in my day. I just remembered this. It was a Cadillac called the JD Smith catalog. I've been a lot of you right now but holy shit I forgot about that. In the JD Smith catalog, where pictures of all these things you could order. And back then, things took 6 weeks to get to your fucking house. And your mother would pay for them by check, no credit card. You'd have to check the envelope in the mail with a stamp and wait. Couldn't call anybody one day it appeared three months later. Oh my God, I forgot this. It was magic kids. It was all this kind of disappear ink. This purple lengthy spray on people's shirts, and they want to kill it, and then it slowly goes away. Just stupid shit like that. And in that catalog, what this book about freaks, and it was called freaks. Inside the book, it finally got to the house. My mother, I'm not buying you this shit, ma. I gotta see this. Look at Johnny eck. Look at ching and ing, the Siamese twins connected at the head. There was Julia Pastrana, the dog faced woman. Grace mcdaniel the ugliest woman in the world. So many in that, so I love that book. For about 12 years old, I couldn't put it down for two years. I carried

The new model with the Dan Bongino show going forward is gonna get your ass to work. That's it? Yep. Talked about it yesterday a little bit, and it's going to have a little kind of subtext to it. A subheading It's going to be and for those of you working your butts off. Thank you. You have my deepest respect. For those plumbers, truckers, electricians, carpenters. Janitors, architects, pilots, police officers, military men and women out there. All of you. Factory workers.

The Democrats are now the anti work party, the anti productivity party. The pro poverty party and they're doing things we were warned about decades ago by King philosophers like Thomas Soul would lead to generational poverty, and they're doing it again. Because either they're really stupid or they want the country to rot from the inside out, and they are the pro poverty party. I believe in the latter, not the former, They are not stupid. So the new model of the party because we're done playing around is the Dan Bongino Show, quote. Get your ass to work. If you don't want to work
"caterpillar" Discussed on WBUR
"I'm sorry for your loss for the family's loss. How are you today? Um, you know, I feel that we started for the loss of the Children's community. I mean, Our Karl was just such a legend and he liked leave the whole now that he's gone. Grace, do you? Can you tell us? Did he influence your work? Do you remember him from your own childhood? Has it shaped any of what? You've done The influences of those books. Oh, very much. So, I mean, who can't forget the 100 category? I mean, from the little small holes. I remember, um, going through that book in like putting my finger in each of the whole thing Kind of like trying to see if I could. Which fingers will fit in the holes that the caterpillar ate through through the leaf. And I think you think so fascinated with that book, even at a young age. And realizing what impact it had on me. I mean, when I decided to become a Children's book creator when I grew up, those are the books that I remember the books that made such an impact, and that made me realize those were the books that I wanted to create. And, of course, the very hungry Caterpillar has sold more than 55 million copies. It's been translated into more than 70 languages. I understand you brought a little exert from it that you're going to read for us. Yes. So this is the end of the book, and it goes like this. The next day was Sunday again. The Caterpillar ate through one nice green leaf, and after that, he felt much better. Now he wasn't hungry anymore, And he wasn't a little caterpillar anymore. He was a big fat caterpillar. He built a small house called a cocoon around himself. He stayed inside for more than two weeks. Then he nibbled. The whole ineptitude pushed his way out and He was a beautiful butterfly. Chris. I'm a little taken aback at how strong a response I'm having to hear. You read that right from my own childhood. What is it about these books from our childhoods? Let's stay with us in such a profound way. Oh, I think it's because these are our first Either our first encounters with art. These are our first encounters with stories. This is our first encounter of how we want the world to be and so As we grow older, we realize the world isn't the way they are in stories, but that's the way it should be. That's why when we hear them, we remember that kind of wistfulness that desire that that in some way, you know, I say innocents. But it's more than that. It's it's the earnestness of knowing how humanity should be. You know, I read in one article today that he said it could take him two or three years to fully flesh out an idea for one of these books that he quote, start with 2000 words and reduce them to 20. What do you know about his writing process? And how rare is it for somebody to know how to take 2000 words of ideas and find just the right 20 to tell them. I think that is something that many picture books players go through. Ah, lot of people say that writing a picture book is like writing. Ah, Hi kun. But you have to be able to tell a story through behind Crusoe. It Z quite a challenging thing. I think there's this misconception that because it's for Children and because there's so few words that Writing a picture book is easy, but it's quite difficult because every word counts so much and to be a master like Eric Carl was You have to pay attention to each word and make sure that each word is exactly what you mean. Which is why I took him so long. You talked about pictures there to let Let's talk about that for a minute. I believe the first book you ever illustrated was Brown Bear Brown bear. What do you see? He In his biography, It seems to have shaped his work. We know he grew up in Germany and that the experiences of war influence what he wanted to bring to his pages. Here. He is speaking to NPR in 2007. About being in Germany in World War two. Everything was gray and brown grays and greens and browns, greens and great greens and browns grays and there was no color. And there's so much color in these books talk about that is is color healing. And is there a kind of intentionality to the pictures as well as the words? When you want to bring kids along with these stories. Yes, I think it's very important. I mean, It's Theo idea that you have so many colors and the way that he illustrated. It makes it feel alive, you know, And that's what his stories and his books did for kids. They came alive to them because it became a part of their colorful, beautiful, vibrant world. And, uh, that's why I teach connected so much. And if their world wasn't vibrant and colorful, it made them want to be in the world he created. You know, we've already talked about the very hungry caterpillar Pet Caterpillar. We've talked about a brown bear. There's also the mixed up chameleon, The grouchy ladybug. The very busy spider. What did Eric Carl C and insects or recognize in insects? It made them such fantastic subjects for him. Oh, well, that might be a little bit beyond me to tell you, But I imagine that he found a fascination with all these natural objects and how they could kind of relate to Children because you know, Children, they see things. So they see the world so small like at my daughter like when it rains. She's not looking at the big rain Storm or the big club. She's looking at the teeny, tiny warm that's coming out in the ground, you know or what? We're walking somewhere, and we'll see something big, big and loud like a huge truck, But she's looking at the teeny tiny pebbles on the ground. I imagine That air. Karl knew this. He knew that kids were looking at the small things and they were wondering and looking at them with all marvel these normal ordinary things that adults walked by every day, and I think he probably Realized that what wonder they held up the kids and decided to show them or Britain stories to that wonder for them. Grace. You work with objects and your Children stories as well. Kite's fortune cookies and turn them into subjects that connect with kids. Should I now picture what you just said, is the explanation of how you have found that magic in your own work. Yes, I think so. And I think that's where Carl really did affect me. I mean, I have a book hub dim sum for everyone, and it's in some ways. It's just a very simple story of a family going to eat a dim sum. But It's the idea of taking something so ordinary and making it so magical and making it so momentous because in the book that the Children pick their own food, and even though two adults that seems like no big deal to a kid, that's a really big deal. It's like a moment of wonder. You know, it's a moment of empowerment, and I think that One of the lessons that air Carl taught me. Do you see any up and coming arrow? Eric Carle's out there in the world of Children's books today. Oh, gosh. There's so many beautiful, beautiful picture books out there. In fact, I just curated an online picture book show for the Carl Museum of You mentioned I was I'm a board member there, and we curated a show called Agents every day in honor of Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month. And there's so many beautiful illustrators. In that show. There's Jason Chin, who illustrated watercress There is, um Dum Ho, who illustrated eyes Kiss Corner. There is Who want me who illustrated like a dandelion, and this is just Ah, couple just off the top of my head. So there's so many, many beautiful illustrators. And actually, that's one of the wonderful legacies that Eric Carle is. It's leaving with us is that he created this museum, The Air Carl Museum, a picture book art so that he could continue this love of picture book art. This You know, treasuring and fostering of of, you know of Children's book illustration. Um, I think he I think he would agree that you know Children's book, Children's books, Children's book art. They're kind of like one of humanity's cultural treasures, and that's why he started the museum. Well, we'll put the museum website on our Web pages. Www dot Carl Museum, Dad Organs, the museum and we are Radio Boston Dad or G'kar Graceland Award winning Children's book author illustrator and.

Whatever something him and he's no longer worm houston the entire vineyard and the orchard to the fruit the trunk growing wisdom and joy that doesn't need to devour.
