I had a lovely birthday.
The pound cake is delicious and I still had enough wind to blow out the candles.

My brother-in-law and sister gave me a card, a cool shirt and a Tervis tumbler. Unexpected presents.

A Y’all Sweet Tea t-shirt. Pretty cool.

I am blessed.

My body has terminal prostate cancer. It’s treatable and that should extent life. It is a surreal journey.

Homemade pound cake makes it better.

My quality of life score is 31/56

This card points to the oneness we share with others. It encourages us to see where we are the alike rather than focusing on our differences. WE ARE ONE!

A Long Day

3 Comments

This is the first time I’ve worn regular clothes in almost a month. I’m going out for a long day filled with doctor visits.

What started out as routine doctors’ appointments ended with 7 hours in the ER. One blood transfusion later we returned home and collapsed into bed.

Memories stuck between the pages of my mind

4 Comments

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”

To mask or not to mask? As for me, myself, and I, we will wear a mask when around people. I live in a extremely high risk area.

I went to Hayneville today for supplies. When I was there a couple of weeks ago only a few people wore mask. Today almost everyone I saw was a wearing and mask and social distancing. The three people not wearing masks really stood out. I felt safer there than anywhere else I have gone other than the west coast where everyone was wearing masks.

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.
