1. “In mythology, blackness is the primal source of all life and possibility. In psychology, blackness symbolizes the rich unconscious core from which all vitality emerges” ~ Rob Brezsny.
The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. ~ Genesis 1:2-3.

Form and void. Form cannot exist without the void. Form exists within the void.
Empty space cries out to creation.

2. The not knowing.

3. My experience is, nothing goes back to how it used to be. The journey only goes forward through changes. Nothing is the same as it was mere nows ago.

Once Upon a Time in Pint Lala 5

2 Comments

1. The storm came. The power went off. 52 degrees. It got a bit chilly inside. 4 hours later the power was restored. Warming up again.

2. I’ve been away from Pint Lala for a couple of weeks. I road tripped to The Great Smokey Mountains.

3. When I returned to Pint Lala there were some awesome warm days. I was loving them. Then in came the cold of winter. It was 27 F when I got up. Brrrrr

A little drip drip created a little ice stalagmite.
It’s been a long time since I’ve seen ice on this windshield.

QOTD: “In early January every year, many people make New Year’s resolutions, promising to embark on programs of self-improvement. But your assignment now, should you choose to accept it, is to create a list of ANTI-resolutions.

Here are some questions to guide you:

1. What outlandish urges and controversial tendencies do you promise to cultivate in the coming months?

2. What nagging irritations will you ignore and avoid with even greater ingenuity?

3. What problems do you promise to exploit in order to have even more fun as you make the status quo accountable for its corruption?

4. What boring rules and traditions will you thumb your nose at, paving the way for exciting encounters with strange attractors?” – Rob Brezsny

I love his anti-resolution idea and the four guidelines.

2021, What a Year

2 Comments

This is a long read about some of the things that happened in my life in 2021. There are probably spelling and grammatical errors. I have read it several times. Seems I always find another.

In January, Jesse and I were living in Gulf Shores Alabama. Doc’s RV park is the place. Walmart delivered the groceries. We rode our bicycles. We did not really hang out with other people. Covid kept us apart.

In February Jesse and I moved to Magnolia Branch. We enjoyed the woods and the water. Christy came to visit for a bit. Later in the month Jeremy came to pick up Jesse. I ended the month living alone.

I spend March at Montgomery South RV Park. They are close to Alabama Safari Park and I visited there often. Jesse visited for a while and I went to Hill House to visit them. March is Dr Cox appointment month. I did that and stayed with Belle a few days.

April comes and goes. I’m still in South Montgomery and I’m still visiting the safari park. There were lots of spring babies in the safari park. The Watusi cattle calves were so small. Cute.

In May I visited Belle and Elliot. I had an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon about my knee. They gave me a shot in the knee and that straightened things out. It’s still good today.

June was a busy month. I moved from South Montgomery RV Park to a scuzzy place in Prattville. I got my oil changed, my main drive built replaced and visited Spectre in Millbrook Alabama. Later that month I moved back to Paradise Point Marina.

The high point of July was probably the fireworks show in Homewood AL. Belle and Elliot took me and we had a great time. Jesse came for a long visit.

Jesse was so much fun to have around during August. He expanded my cooking abilities. I started frying a few things for him and that eventually lead to an air fryer and cooking with a Blackstone griddle.

His visit lasted into September. It was an excellent birthday month that included a week long trip to Panama City FL.

Bizarro Month was outstanding. I was still in Paradise. There was lots of morning fog. I like taking fog photos.

In November I returned to South Montgomery Rv Park and more vists to the Alabama Safari Park. Good times. I remained in that rv park until the new year.

The high point of December was a road trip to the Smoky Mountains with my son and his family. Those were great days. The last day of 2021 was the day the road trip ended back at WHQ. There are blog post here about the road trip.

My kind of Advent Calendar

I am grateful for new experiences.

This special Christmas was a different kind of Christmas time in old familiar places, with shared pleasant memories from a former life and amazing new memories. It was the best Christmas in many years.

The last day of 2021. It’s rainy. Maybe I’ll make it back to WHQ today.

I thought this was an intriguing marketing idea.
Tasty fruit
This one me was looking at me.
What a surprise at WHQ. One of the air plants bloomed. Isn’t it lovely. I’m looking forward to the pups.

I’m back at WHQ. Things look and function as they should. It’s good to be back. It was good to be away. Sitting outside in shorts enjoying a cup of French Market Chicory coffee.

QOTD: “What worn-out shticks are blinding us to the blessings that life is conspiring to give us?

Which of our theories may have been useful and even brilliant in the past but are now keeping us from becoming aware of the ever-fresh creation that unfolds before us?

It’s not enough to terminate our stale mental habits just once.  We have to ask ourselves rude questions and kick our own asses again and again.

We have to immerse ourselves regularly in the waters of chaos.

Our relationship with life has to be a never-ending improvisation.” – Rob Brezsny

The weather outside is frightful: Rain and wind; Flashing lights from the heavens; Enormous booming. Not my idea of good driving weather. For today I’ll stay in the safe haven of the Belle home and enjoy the warmth, dryness, love, happiness and yummy foods.

QOTD: Listen up all you bad-ass tantric saints “You can stop taking your pain personally…
… you can relate to it instead as “THE pain” rather than “MY pain” and make a heroic bodhisattva decision to gladly feel & transmute THE pain on behalf of everyone else.” ~ Carolyn Elliott

Waiting on the Uber
My location independent home is where I am. It’s even better when my tribe is there.
Beautiful Christmas flowers adorn the entrance.
A book on the table.

There is one last drive and I’ll be back at WHQ. I look forward to seeing my stuff through different eyes. When I started mejeep after 13 days of sitting idle, it ran a bit rough. Tomorrow will be an adventure of one sort or another.

QOTD: “I invite you to have:

an improbable quest playing at the edge of your imagination: a heroic task that provokes deep thoughts and noble passions even if it incites smoldering torment;

an extravagant dream that’s only slightly farfetched;

a goal that stretches your possibilities and opens your mind;

a wild hope whose pursuit makes you smarter and stronger even if you never fully accomplish it.” ~ Rob Brezsny

My mighty chariot for the next to last leg of the road trip. It’s my first hybrid ride. Enjoyable.
A rare occurrence, my second visit to an Applebees.

I ordered parmesan garlic boneless wings with blue cheese dipping sauce and a diet soda to go. I attempted to add a Bloody Mary. The waitress said, “I can’t do that. This is Alabama.” Sweet Home Alabama 😂😂😂😂😂

The last cabin were we slept. ER101, Heavenly Hideaway
My bed for a night. I liked the log furniture.
Full size bunk beds.
A relic from the long ago.

QOTD: “If you’re really listening, if you’re awake to the poignant beauty of the world, your heart breaks regularly. In fact, your heart is made to break; its purpose is to burst open again and again so that it can hold ever-­more wonders.” ~ Andrew Harvey, The Return of the Mother
