1. The weed eater sounds rather soothing as does the traffic noise in the distance. People having fun across the street. Laughter. I just like to chill sometimes.

2. Over a year on the CCE. WOWIE ZOWIE I’m vaccinated!

3. Fun times in the Ice-o-lation. I’ve saved a lot of money. I am working on my shadows. It is an excellent time of growth.

4. I may need knee surgery. I will find out in May. That opens up a huge logics problem in my silly world.

In addition to the knee thing, I fell down some steps. I was bruised and stiff but seem to be ok now.

I truly appreciate each of you. Thank you so much for your visits, likes, and comments. You make my life better.

March Finds

1. I learned to make a delicious ham and Swiss cheese breakfast bowl.

2. A Ram Dass quote I haven’t noticed before (or forgot). “Nothing to do. Nowhere to go. The next message you need is always right where you are.”

3. Cabbage, onion, potatoes, garlic, fresh ground pepper, red pepper flakes, Italian seasoning, 1/2 a cup of water, other seasoning you like, cajun sausage. Instant pot, 10 minutes, quick release, after the pressure is released, lid off, a bunch of spinach leaves, lid on until the spinach is wilted. Eat up!

What beautiful eyes you have.

I appreciate each of you. Thank you for your visits, likes, and comments. Stay safe out there in the CCE.

#The100DayProject Practice

I’m probably doing the #100DayProject this year. I have two ideas I and playing with: pictures of my everyday life or pictures/videos of acts of kindness.

The Holidays

13 Comments

Once it was my favorite time of year, now the holidays are difficult for me. From Halloween until the New Year was joyous. Then my world and I changed.
Fifteen or so years ago my ex announced she wanted a divorce. That crushed my heart and my world. I’ve never found another person to share life. For a while I looked. That was a waste of time. I think finding another partner was never in the cards. I have accepted that.
Eleven years ago in late October and early November my parents died two weeks apart. They were the last spark of holiday joy. My mom was the spirit of Christmas in our family.
My children were grown and gone. With my wife and children gone and my parents gone I can’t muster up any holiday cheer though I try.
There is so much grief associated with holidays.

This year I’ve gotten a holiday cheer boost. A child is spending November and December in the rig. He brings his own holiday joy and it’s contagious I need more new good Christmas memories like this.

I read somewhere one should name their holiday grief. Name it and honor it. This year my holiday grief is the memories of good Christmas celebrations in my parent’s home. I’ll light a candle and place it on the not-an-altar.

I feel like I’m rambling so I think I’ll stop.

Thank you for stopping in. Your visits, likes, and comments are greatly appreciated . Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. Wishing you love and joy.

1. Corporate pollution really annoys me. Trump’s rollback of many environmental protection rules annoys me. This particular coal ash problem in Alabama is ridiculous. There is no excuse. The same company has corrected the same problem in other states.

2. We visited a metaphysical shop today. Great fun. I got a new tarot deck, some candles, incense, a tree of life box, and some other items.
The reader was excellent. She was right on target. The store was well stocked. The owner was knowledgeable and friendly.

Live and Let Live
It’s Smurfy

3.

I immediately thought of mother when I saw her peeking out of the Devil’s Backbone.

I appreciate each of you. Your visits, likes, and comments are nice. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. Wishing you love and peace.

1. The last time I waited with a dying person it was almost 11 years ago. I am totally surprised to be doing it again. It’s not a relative and not someone close to me. I’m just giving a friend a break.

2.

3. I attended a friend’s funeral. The funeral of the person I sat with. It was sad.

Zen wants you living, living in abundance, living in totality, living intensely – not at the minimum, but at the maximum, overflowing. 

Your life should reach to others. Your blissfulness, your benediction, your ecstasy should not be contained within you like a seed. It should open like a flower and spread its fragrance to all and sundry – not only to the friends but to the strangers too. 

This is real compassion, this is real love: sharing your enlightenment, sharing your dance of the beyond. – Osho Zen Tarot

Dream a little dream

Osho Zen Tarot

Let me start with this. I do not have Covid yet.

Before Covid I was living my dream. Now, I’m not. Covid stomped all over it. I’m sure I’m not alone. The entire world is in this together. Being united would be the “A” plan But we have tRump the lord of division.

ANYWAY

It’s been difficult for me to dream a new dream. I have spent most of these hundred plus days of ice-0-lation hunkered down. I’ll admit to some fear. Especially when this plague finally starting spiking where I’m parked and people I know became sick and died. That got my attention.

My Covid Zombie face

So here I am trying to dream a new dream. I think I’m over the grieving. Now it’s time to regroup and dream a new dream.

Thank you for dropping by. Your visits lift my spirits. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. The sickness is spreading rapidly here. Much love ❤️
