Firefly! I named it Mal, he got separated from his Browncoats. When we first came to Nicaragua, I kept seeing flashing lights outside. I'd never seen a glow bug or firefly in California. It's been so fun. But now they keep finding there way inside. Here's a closeup of its LED-like underside and its Browncoat. #permaculture #bugsofinstagram #firefly #bug #lightningbug #glowbug #nicaragua #nicalife #slowlife

"Permaculture is a strategy for land-use planning and design that uses indicators of sustainability 
found in all natural ecosystems. Permaculture is the process, not the place!" ~ Larry Santoyo, The Permaculture Academy.

Two feet from the bed. Our first scorpion in Nicaragua. I remember thinking we didn't see any in Costa Rica this weekend. Did the big storm bring this in tonight? The drops sounded very large. Maybe it is the plagues? Huge ants, now scorpions. The storm also knocked out my external hard drive and a USB port on Jaimey's computer (earlier in the day when we were in the city). Where is the nearest Apple Store? Glad the computers weren't fried. The fluctuating electricity did it, even with a surge protector. #plagues #scorpion #arachnidsofinstagram #mercuryretrograde #expatlife #expatliving #nicaragua

Three Steps to No-Till Carbon Farming from Elizabeth and Paul Kaiser of Singing Frogs Farm: 1) Disturb the soil as little as possible, 2) Keep a diversity of living plants in the ground as often as possible, and 3) Keep the soil covered and protected as often as possible.

Slide to see all pics. Animals are not kept in captivity (zoos) for entertainment in Costa Rica. These animals are either being rehabilitated for release, or have experienced a trauma that disabled them. Sweet place doing good work. #animalwelfare #birds #macaw #hawk #monkey #toucan #ocelot #costarica #bethechange #protect #capuchin #wildandfree #owls

" I know that the small acts we take toward the healing of the world are the only steps we can take, and that the way change happens in this country is from the grassroots, a rhizomatic, perpetual motion, like the beautiful, pernicious bindweed in the garden." ~ Rachel Kaplan, Author of Urban Homesteading.
