Llama

This large llama stood right in front of our Jeep. Other llamas surrounded us. They all wanted food. In order to move on, I had to ease up. Stop. Ease up. Stop. Ease up. Stop. After about 10 minutes of this, the llama allowed us to pass.

Elliot and I had an awesome time there.

5. Red Mountain Park

Scene 1:

Winter takes me down a darker path. I bought a ticket for the long way round. I am getting closer to the end. It’s an awesome ride. I like to think you’ll miss me when I’m gone.

When I’m gone….

Scene 2:

I went to my first Christmas boat parade. Best one I’ve ever seen. Definitely worth trying again.

Scene 3:

A cheery musical interlude for all of you who are mindfully living.

Today’s lesson:  “move away from the crazy ones.”

2019 in Review

9 Comments

I don’t usually do this but there is some new feeling that “Time is running out” so this gets a whirl.

There were a few disappointments but overall 2019 was a great year for me.

There were no major problems with WHQ or my Jeep. I even managed to fix some big things myself and that made them minor.

My relationship with WHQ is more comfy. I’ve slowly been making it more and more my own.

With help from my family I put a new top on Jeepy. It was long overdue.

I spent a lot of quality time with my family and really enjoyed most of it.

I did not get sick or die and no people I love died. Those are always a win.

I took back control over two parts of my life that I had neglected and let drift into less than territory.

I revaluated my relationships and rearranged boundaries.

My tribe became more clearly defined.

I became more fit and as a result I lost weight and kept it off.

I physically and spiritually traveled to new places and enjoyed new experiences. Mindfulness was very important for me in 2019.

That’s a short list. Nothing really earth shattering and I’m sure I’ve left out things.

I Can Never Pass This Way Again

Leave a comment

Osho Tarot Celebration

As I consider this holiday season I know I will never pass this way again: these lights, this tree, these tasty treats, this combination of people, and all the rest will never be the same. These children will grow. We all will age. I will celebrate the existence of these unique moments.  I will open my heart, my ears, my eyes, and my mind.

I will remember those who are no longer present in body and I will know they are present in spirit. I see them in the ornaments, the lights, and the treats. I hear them in the laughter of the children. I feel them in the love and traditions.

I am present in this festive dance. I am one with these moments. I can never pass this way again.

———–

In loving memory of Ram Dass my mantra for today is “I am loving awareness. I am loving awareness.”

Scene 1:

I had a great time at Paradise Point Marina‘s costume party.

Scene 2:

I’m called to invoke the power of the true inebriated creator of the universe, the drunken tolerator of the all lesser and more recent gods, and maintainer of gravity here on earth. May the great Flying Spaghetti Monster rouse himself from his stupor and let his noodly appendages ground each assembly member in their seats.” — Fletcher

Scene 3:

Today two people I really respect commented about me to me.

“You are very special Ralph.”

“You are a stupid loser who will always be alone,”

Hmmmm

Barkus

2 Comments

The only Mardi Gras krewe in New Orleans for the canine population. Founded in 1993, the Mystic Krewe of Barkus is a non-profit organization.  The Mystic Krewe of Barkus was envisioned and created in November 1992 at a meeting of the Margaret Orr (WDSU-TV Weather Anchor) Fan Club held at Good Friends Bar. Thomas Wood brought his dog Jo Jo McWood to the meeting, where people complained about her neurotic ways. To get back at them all, Wood decided to make Jo Jo McWood queen of her parade and captain-for-life. Thus, the Krewe of Barkus was born.” ~ Barkus.org

Wandering Wednesday Photo

The patriotic photo prompt is from Ingrid, Live Laugh RV. Check out her blog.

This is the Liberty Day Celebration in small town USA. It almost seems like a scene from a Norman Rockwell painting.

Happy Fourth of July.

Peace, love and luck!

The 2018 Mashup

2 Comments

2018 Things

Keep calm.

I’m not a resolution maker. I’m not a resolution keeper. I pick themes or words or intentions (Stayed tunes. Soon a 2018 intentions blog is coming to a screen near you.) or a mixture. This year is a mashup, a fusion of ideas.

Stay crazy.

My 2018 mantra: “Lord Jesus have mercy on me.” It’s my mala (spiritual fidget spinner) version of the Jesus Prayer.

My always motto: “Be here now”.

My anthem for 2018 is the album “ Apostrophe”. You have hear it to appreciate it.

My theme: Transformation
This is a year of change (as all years are). It’s a year for renewal and new adventures. It’s time to work on myself. A time to check what is truly valuable in my life. I live a nomadic lifestyle and that has changed me. I think it’s time to jump into that process and be more active in the transformation. Or not. 😎 Westward?

Laugh! Live! Love!

And let us not forget the big eyed aliens from Uranus.

Or is that Big Eyed Aliens from Venus Beans! It is beans.

Happy 2018

As this magical year of transition begins accept these good vibes as a New Year’s gift.

May you live too large.

May you talk too loud and too much.

May you be silent and hear.

May you dance to music playing in your head.

May you be protected from vampires and arseholes of all varieties.

May you eat good food and exercise and sleep as required.

May you have clean water and drink at weddings and funerals.

May your creativity and world expand.

May you lighten your load; fewer things and fewer people and fewer worries.

May you be wild and courageous letting you unique self fly freely.

May you walk in grace and faith, always grateful.

I love you.

Peace ✌️
