Memories

Years ago, on a dark street in the Quarter, I came upon this beautiful woman.
Louis is my favorite performance artist in NOLA. I have taken many photos of him. I miss meeting him for drinks and stories.
She writes poem on Royal Street

2. Memories Fade.

Covid isolation day 121.
It has been long enough for my former life to begin fading away into relics and fuzzy memories of a past that no longer exist. These are the good ole days. The present moment, now, is all there is and I will live my best life now.
I’m developing new thoughts and new ways of being that are not dependent on other people.They can not be dependent on other people because there are no other people in my now. My heartmind is grieving my former life and once again I say attachment is the trap, attachment is causing suffering. We all suffer. As I grieve so do I change, reinventing my life, walking alone

3. From the Osho Zen Tarot.
Adventure: “When we are truly in a spirit of adventure, we are moving just like this child. Full of trust, out of the darkness of the forest into the rainbow of the light, we go step by step, drawn by our sense of wonder into the unknown.Adventure really has nothing to do with plans and maps and programs and organization. The Page of Rainbows represents a quality that can come to us anywhere – at home, or in the office, in the wilderness or in the city, in a creative project or in our relationships with others. Whenever we move into the new and unknown with the trusting spirit of a child, innocent and open and vulnerable, even the smallest things of life can become the greatest adventures.
Zen says truth has nothing to do with authority, truth has nothing to do with tradition, truth has nothing to do with the past – truth is a radical, personal, realization. You have to come to it. Knowledge is certain; the search for personal knowing is very, very hazardous. Nobody can guarantee it. If you ask me if I can guarantee anything, I say I cannot guarantee you anything. I can only guarantee danger, that much is certain. I can only guarantee you a long adventure with every possibility of going astray and never reaching the goal. But one thing is certain: the very search will help you to grow.
I can guarantee only growth. Danger will be there, sacrifice will be there; you will be moving every day into the unknown, into the uncharted, and there will be no map to follow, no guide to follow. Yes, there are millions of dangers and you can go astray and you can get lost, but that is the only way one grows. Insecurity is the only way to grow, to face danger is the only way to grow, to accept the challenge of the unknown is the only way to grow.”
~ Osho

The 100 Day Project

8 Comments

Days 86 – 92

Day 86
At the pier

Day 87
OSHO Zen Tarot
Exploring the depths of inner silence, where it meets the silence of the universe. Nothing to do, no where to go, the inner silence observes everything. It can annoy someone because they are accustomed to all the world’s noise and activities. That’s ok. I’ll find someone who can sympathize with silence, someone to enjoy my loneliness. Now, it is time to find who I was before they told who to be. The understanding and self-enlightenment that is happening at this point, will be revealed later, in an easier stage of life.
Day 88
Chains
Day 89
Each morning he and I are regulars on the pier.
Day 90
Covid is spreading rapidly in this area. So what’s the “control the spread” plan? How about a street festival?
Day 91
Covid is smothering me.
Day 92
My Covid Mood

Thank you for stopping and interacting. I appreciate you. Stay well. Be safe. I love you.

1. I don’t know if I can do FB much longer. It’s wearing on my spirit. Maybe I’ll try putting some of my peeps to sleep for 30 days. I’m weary of the pain and suffering and lies and fighting.

2. I love kimchi. Making a new batch.

Cabbage 🥬
The “Secret” Sauce
Packing the jars.
All done.
Now it ferments for 5 days.

3. I don’t understand. Covid cases are going up 30% a week here. 48 new cases yesterday. So what do we do to reduce infection rate? We have a street fair.

Liberty Day

1. What a time to be alive. What a noteworthy time to die. “The Xyborg Nomad died in the great Covid plague of 2020”.

2. Fire, Stress the 7 of Wands
Like yesterday’s card, today’s card was the 7 of Fire. Stress from the Osho Zen Tarot. Obviously there is a pattern here. A lot of persistent energy. I am juggling all my stuff, standing on a bubble wondering if the Covid monkey will end the dance.

3. QOTD “Testing people and finding out who actually has the virus is causing people to HAVE the virus. Reporting how many people are going into hospitals and ICU’s due to the virus is causing people to goto the hospitals with the virus

Posting any facts about the coronavirus is causing it to spread

We know this because Trump told us” – Unknown

1.

Methodist Hymnal

2. I dreamed I was someone else in another world. I was in my 20’s, athletic build, short blond hair. Wishful dreaming. 😂

3. I live in a county in Alabama with a high risk of becoming infected. There are many cases here. The number infected is going up 25% weekly. It’s a red zone. I am at high risk of death if I become infected. Another red zone. So what did I do? I ventured forth from WHQ on a life or death quest to the grocery store. Stayed tuned to see if I get sick.

The plot thickens. The risk increases. On a side note, today’s Osho Zen Tarot card was the 7 of fire, Stress.

Favorite Finds in June

1. My pen pal E sent me a letter with this cool picture. It’s been years since I’ve had a pen pal. It’s fun.

2. The Cahaba Lilies are wonderful. I waded into the Cahaba River and promptly fell on my arse. I walked away a few hours later with a nice bruise, a few good pictures, and some video clips.

3.

Enjoy the view.
There is nothing else to do.

4. The A B C of mindfulness

1. The Mad Scramble

I shot the video with an iPhone and the 8 mm app. The editing was done using the Splice app. Nova Rain added the voiceover.

2. All this ice-0-lation, self reflection and meditation is bearing fruit. I flipped out some in the last few days. Melancholy! Confusion! At loose ends. Adrift. Then boom. With the help of a friend I peeled off a huge, tough, nasty layer from my onion. “The unbearable lightness of being”. Growth is difficult. But I am better now. Closer to nobody.

3. I’ve been trying to get my oil and filters changed since January 2020. I’ve been turned away once. SpeedCo didn’t have the oil filter. That is just not true. There was some other reason. Beats me. I may have found a good local place. Maybe during July WHQ will be well lubricated once again.

Thanks 😊 so much for coming by and interacting. You brighten my day and bring joy to my heart. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. I love you.
