The path of love. The path with heart.

Memories Stuck Between the Pages of My Mind

I’ve been feeling sick for so long I decided to treat myself to one of my childhood favorites. The brand is different but the flavor is nice. This perked me up a bit.

QOTD: “God of the Wild, you are different from what I expected. I cannot predict you. You are too free to be captured for the sake of my understanding. I can’t find you in the sentimentalism of religion. You are everywhere I least expect to find you. You are not the force that saves me from the pain of living; you are the force that brings me life even in the midst of pain.” ~ Adolfo Quezada

One of my air plants bloomed.

Blooming day 1
Day 2
Day 3
Day 4

Air plants grow in the air, where they live and thrive without soil. They are part of the Bromeliad family. They absorb moisture and nutrients through their leaves.

QOTD: “Blissipline is the commitment to experiencing a little or a lot of bliss every day; the practice of expanding one’s capacity for bliss and being open to receive it in any moment.” A “blissiplinarian” is “someone who enforces pleasure and invites opportunities for more pleasure,” while a “blissciple” is a person who aspires to master the art of blissipline.” ~ Rana Satori Stewart

1. I always smile when I hear this song.

2. It’s part of my daily ritual to pull a card from the Osho Zen Tarot. Recently I pulled this card.

It’s one of my favorites, reminding me that life is not as serious as I often make it out to be.

3. Another of the air plants is about to bloom. I find these plants fascinating

QOTD: “The knowledge I’m interested in is not something you buy and then have and can be comfortable with. The knowledge I’m interested in keeps opening wider and wider, making me smaller and more amazed, until I see I cannot have it all — and then delight in that as a freedom.”—Heather McHugh

QOTD: “Obstacles are a natural part of life, just as boulders are a natural part of the course of a river,” declares the ancient Chinese book the I Ching. “The river does not complain or get depressed because there are boulders in its path.”

Each year around Easter I begin to crave Peeps. I know there are many variations of this Easter classic but plain yellow suits me. They are my favorite childhood memory of Easter. I usually wait for the after the Resurrection Celebration candy sales and pick up a pack of 5 for fifty cents. I may eat them all or I may eat one.

“Candy historians speculate that the Peeps’ link to Easter has more to do with the pagan origins of the holiday than its Christian roots. Eggs, and consequently chicks, are a long-standing symbol of fertility and rebirth, an appropriate image for a holiday that celebrates the coming of spring. Originally part of a pagan fertility ritual symbolizing new life, the egg became incorporated into Easter as pagan rites were absorbed into Christianity with the Christianization of Central Europe.“ ~ Slate

QOTD: “You may not know how to eliminate the lack, or fill the void, or fix the issue, but you have the power, at any moment to ALIGN WITH WHAT GIVES YOU LIFE. You can change your story in an instant, by simply shifting the focus away from what you fear or lack or cannot solve this moment to what you want and have and can enjoy right now. “ ~ Andrea Balt

I purchased these because NOLA. They are tasty.

Getting some help with the kidney stones. Ouch

Tomorrow will mark a week of passing and trying to pass kidney stones. By far the most painful condition I’ve had to endure. The Nurse Practitioner says there is only one left to go. Soon I hope.

Today I feel a bit better. I hope this indicates a recovery is at hand.

A week went by and now it’s Friday. I just stopped in to tell what condition my condition is in. The kidney stones evolved into a kidney infection. I’m being treated. I seem to be improving. I’m in less pain.

QOTD: “You have the power to bless people and animals with your joy” ~ Rob Brezsny

When I went places with my grandfather, he always stopped on the way back and got us both a strawberry malt. He seemed to know where all the best malt places were. I have a difficult time finding a malt shop these days.

His wife always fed me bananas. Anytime I eat a banana she comes to mind. She would make banana sandwiches. They were banana and Mayo or banana and creamy peanut butter. I recently made one for myself. It was good.

While grocery shopping I saw a bag of mini GooGoo Clusters. My grandfather on my dad’s side liked GooGoo Clusters. He liked Red Skeleton and Laurence Welk. He drove Studebaker cars until he could not buy them any longer. He was a very hard working man with big gnarly, arthritic hands. He always smelled like Ben Gay.

QOTD: “I see that the life of this place is always emerging beyond expectation or prediction or typicality, that it is unique, given to the world minute by minute, only once, never to be repeated. And this is when I see that this life is a miracle, absolutely worth having, absolutely worth saving.
We are alive within mystery, by miracle.”

~ Wendell Berry, “Life is a Miracle: An Essay Against Modern Superstition”
