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.

1. Recently it was 2.22.2022. 2+2+2+2+2+2 = 12 1+2 = 3
“Wherever the number 3 shows up in your life, it’s generally an omen of creativity, communication, optimism, and curiosity!” – Cosmopolitan

2. It isn’t always easy to find a location where I can wash WHQ in the traditional sense: lots of water and soap. I’ve been using this waterless car wash for several years with excellent results.

3. How much time do you spend talking to yourself everyday? I mean in your head, not out loud. Do you mostly talk to yourself about the same things you talked about yesterday?

QOTD: “We cannot live securely in a world which is not our own, in a world which is interpreted for us by others.

“Part of the terror is to take back our own listening, to put our ears to our own inner voices, to see our own light, which is our birthright, and comes to us in silence.” ~ Elaine Bellezza

Getting cozy with social contradictions helps you get cozier with the ultimate nondual truth.” ~ Carolyn Elliot

It’s helpful to embrace the paradoxes.

I visited Devil’s Backbone again. It’s one of my favorite spots at Magnolia Branch.
There are some cool rock formations.
It’s not an easy place to walk.

QOTD: “The great lessons from the true mystics, from the Zen monks, is that the sacred is in the ordinary, that it is to be found in one’s daily life, in one’s neighbors, friends, and family, in one’s back yard, and that travel may be a flight from confronting the sacred. To be looking everywhere for miracles is a sure sign of ignorance that everything is miraculous. ~ Abraham H. Maslow, Religions, Values, and Peak Experiences

My neighbor brought over breakfast: turkey bacon, orange slices and an omelet. It was a cheese, onion, mushroom and canned peas omelet. The peas were a real surprise to me

Southern Tire Mart

4 Comments

Southern Tire came out and repaired the slow leak in the inside driver’s side rear tire. The tire had leaked down from 100 psi to 50 psi in 3 weeks. Turns out it was the valve stem. $180 and worth it.

I really appreciate road side services.

The repaired tire back on WHQ.

I’ll check the tire pressure again before I roll on down the road to assure myself that the problem is resolved.

QOTD: “What we name as anger is actually only the incoherent physical incapacity to sustain this deep form of care in our outer daily life; the unwillingness to be large enough and generous enough to hold what we love helplessly in our bodies or our mind with the clarity and breadth of our whole being.” – From David Whyte’s book, Consolations: The Solace, Nourishment and Underlying Meaning of Everyday Words

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.

My 100 Day Project 2022

1 Comment

I’m not sure about my project this year. I have a lot of questions I’m working out. I think it’s a photo book project. The first phase is collecting photos from my stay at Magnolia Branch Wildlife Reserve.

Here are a few from the flooding February 4th.

The road was flooded for a quarter mile or so. It was more than a foot deep around the curve. I didn’t take a picture there because I did not want to stop. I think I was off the road several times. Water leaked into the jeep.
You can just see the yellow rails of the platform above the water at the bottom of the staircase. Normally that platform is 10 feet above the water.
The day before I walked past that green sign 50’ or more down to the Big Escambia Creek. Not this day.
The big, wide beach eroded and was still partially under water. I didn’t go there while it was mostly under water.

QOTD: “To achieve what the Zen Buddhists call “beginner’s mind,” you dispense with all preconceptions and enter each situation as if seeing it for the first time. “In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities,” wrote Zen teacher Shunryu Suzuki. “but in the expert’s there are few.”
