mkr , 
Nope, I can't confirm it. But--- hehe when we used to drive out to Joshua Tree from L. A I used to bring a bag of birdseed and winnow the seed threw my fingers as we drove down the interstate at 55 mph, it was a very sandy landscape with out much plant cover. Soon there was wheat and other grains and plants growing for the birds to feed on lol .

Subject: theos-talk Blavatsky and her two bags -- Interesting info 

Madame Blavatsky, founder of the Theosophical Society, used to carry two 
bags in her hands, always. Either going for a morning walk or travelling in 
a train - those two bags were always in her hands. And she was throwing 
something out of those bags - from the window while sitting in the train - 
onto the side of the train. 
People would ask, "Why do you do this?" 

She would say, "This has been my whole life's habit. These are seasonal 
flower seeds. I may not come back on this route again, but that does not 
matter. When the season comes and the flowers will blossom, thousands of 
people who pass every day in this line of railway trains will see those 
flowers, those colours . They will not know me. That does not matter. 

"One thing is certain: I am making a few people happy somewhere. That much i 
know. It does not matter whether they know it or not. What matters is that i 
have been doing something which will make somebody happy. Some children may 
come and pluck a few flowers and go home. Some lovers may come and make 
garlands for each other. And without their knowing, i will be part of their 
love. And i will be part of the joy of children. And i will be part of those 
who will be simply passing by the path, seeing the beautiful flowers." 

MKR : Can anyone confirm the above anecdote?
