Personal Notes


Living full time in my rv is an ongoing adventure in down sizing. There is a limited amount of storage space and rig weight is an important safety issue. If I stay parked a month or more it seems things start to accumulate.

Down sizing? Here are a few questions to ask.

1. Does it add value that I can identify?

2. Am I keeping this just-in-case something occurs? Is this a duplicate? Duplicates are often the “just in case” option.

3. Is it digital clutter? I steady have to manage digital clutter.

4. Are these photos and papers really important? Are they still important if they once were important? I no longer print photos and I regularly toss out papers.

5. Is this trash? Is it damaged? The seemingly never ending flow of trash requires attention from the source to the home. I try to select less trash at the store. I feel the need to reduce the incoming flow.

6. If it no longer fits it needs to go.

7. Is this for an abandoned hobby or past phase?Recently I tried to toss my small collection of leather pieces. I just couldn’t do it this time. It’s a past phase. I have some jewelry making supplies that need to go too.

8. Has this items useful life expired? I’ve been culling my clothes. Some are showing their age: really faded or tattered or maybe holes in them.

9. Does this make me feel worse?

Some things are conflicted. Tools and coats are “just in case” items but still add value. More than one shirt is helpful. Spare batteries. Necessary.

Personal Notes


1. The combination of Covid and the current civil unrest has hindered my lifestyle, leaving me a bit adrift in the ocean of my life. I’m ungrounded and have self work to do. My life was nomadic.

2. If I don’t move he won’t see me.

3. It’s been an entertaining few days doing “out of my routine” things and thinking new thoughts.

My Covid-19 Diary Day 2

Osho  Tarot Abundace  King of Rainbows

This Dionysian character is the very picture of a whole man, a “Zorba the Buddha” who can drink wine, dance on the beach and sing in the rain, and at the same time enjoy the depths of understanding and wisdom that belong to the sage. In one hand he holds a lotus, showing that he respects and contains within himself the grace of the feminine. His exposed chest (an open heart) and relaxed belly show that he is at home with his masculinity as well, utterly self-contained.

The four elements of earth, fire, water and sky all conjunct at the King of Rainbows who sits atop the book of the wisdom of life. If you are a woman, the King of Rainbows brings the support of your own male energies into your life, a union with the soul mate within. For a man, this card represents a time of breaking through the conventional male stereotypes and allowing the fullness of the whole human being to shine forth.

In the East people have condemned the body, condemned matter, called matter “illusory,” maya–it does not really exist, it only appears to exist; it is made of the same stuff as dreams are made of. They denied the world, and that is the reason for the East remaining poor, sick, in starvation.

Half of humanity has been accepting the inner world but denying the outer world. The other half of humanity has been accepting the material world and denying the inner world. Both are half, and no man who is half can be contented.

You have to be whole: rich in the body, rich in science; rich in meditation, rich in consciousness. Only a whole person is a holy person, according to me. I want Zorba and Buddha to meet together. Zorba alone is hollow. His dance has not an eternal significance, it is momentary pleasure. Soon he will be tired of it.

Unless you have inexhaustible sources, available to you from the cosmos itself…unless you become existential, you cannot become whole. This is my contribution to humanity: the whole person.

Osho Communism and Zen Fire, Zen Wind, Chapter 2

My take away: I am mindlessly shuffling this deck. My mind was evaluating my supplies. How many weeks of food were on hand? How can I stretch things? Suddenly, this card popped out. OK, message received. “…inexhaustible sources, available to you from the cosmos itself….” Thank you!

Thank you for reading, liking and commenting. I appreciate you. Stay safe and well in these adventurous days.

Inverter/Charger Issues


Since December 24th my Freedom 458 has been malfunctioning.

Today RV tech Jack stopped by and told me the Freedom 458 was broken and needed to be replaced. I ordered a new one from Xantrex for $1,070 and change. It should be here Thursday.

The Passport Application


I turned in my passport application (cation)* today. How (misbehave)* naive of me to think I would walk in, turn it in, pay money, and walk away. It was not that way at all.

Guided by the Gatekeepers instructions and (seeks no)* seeking the light of the holiday tree, I wove my way down into the bowels of the county courthouse. There stood the holiday tree in all its radiant glory. Nice Person asked, “Do you have an appointment?” My brain goes, “appointment? This requires an appointment? Huh?” My mouth says, “No, I didn’t know I needed one”. Nice Person says, “Let’s see if we can work you in today.” Off Nice Person goes deeper in the maze. After awhile and a roll of Smarties, Nice Person returns telling me I’m in luck there has been a cancellation and Passport Person can see me now.

More directions and wandering about. Oh look, It’s Passport Person’s office. Ceremonial greetings are exchanged. Palms are pressed together. Paperwork is reviewed, revised, and copied. The appropriate funds are exchanged. Pleasantries are exchanged. Advice is given. An hour passes. I bid farewell, leaving behind my identity, and like the experimental mouse I wind my way back through the maze to Gatekeeper. The Gatekeeper gives me a lighter, a laugh, a knife, and buzzes me out into the rain.

That’s my story and Maya and I are sticking to it. 😉
