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.”

Thank you so much for your visits, likes, and comments. I appreciate you. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. Vaxx Now Embrace the new real.

The Knight of Water

“Now it is the time to be a bungee jumper without the cord! And this is an expression of absolute trust, not being reserved or hiding in the safety corner, which is what Knight of Water wants from us. It is a great inspiration if we jump and plunge into the unknown, even though it scares us to death. And when we believe in the level of quantum leaps, we won’t devise any elaborate plans. We are not saying: “Okay, I believe I know what to do now, and I will arrange everything, pack suitcases, and carry them.” No, we just jump, not even think about what happens next.

That jump is worthwhile, and it makes us tremble when we fall freely in the vast sky. The Knight of water Osho Zen refers to what will be waiting for us on the other side – a soft, welcoming, yummy pink, rose petals, juicy… Come on!” ~ TarotX.net

“Don’t waste your life for that which is going to be taken away. Trust life. If you trust, only then can you drop your knowledge, only then can you put your mind aside. And with trust, something immense opens up. Then this life is no longer ordinary life, it becomes full of God, overflowing.

When the heart is innocent and the walls have disappeared, you are bridged with infinity. And you are not deceived; there is nothing that can be taken away from you. That which can be taken away from you is not worth keeping, and that which cannot be taken away from you, why should one be afraid of its being taken away? – it cannot be taken away, there is no possibility. You cannot lose your real treasure. “

Curbside Pickup


I’m trying curbside pickup at the local grocery store. I called yesterday to get the scoop on how small town USA curbside pickup works. I’m calling in my order, they will do the best they can, and they will call me back with the total.

The list:

  • Green bell pepper X
  • Cucumber X
  • Bag o carrots X
  • 4 Roma tomatoes X
  • 4 green bananas X
  • Bag of yellow onions X
  • Celery hearts X
  • Bag o apples X
  • 5lbs potatoes X
  • Big jar dill pickles X
  • Jif Crunchy peanut butter C
  • Canned pineapple X
  • Canned pears X
  • Raisins
  • 3 small cans tuna in water X
  • onion soup mix X
  • Bouillon cubes X
  • Bay leaves X
  • Small bags of flour and cornmeal
  • Cooking oil 32oz
  • TP X (I was surprised it was available)

  • 2 diet DP X
  • Sharp cheddar X
  • Hoop cheese X

The items with an “X” are the items that were available. The employees did a great job. It was as safe as possibly. The grand total for this adventure was $88 and change and should feed me for 2 or 3 weeks. When I got home I wiped down some things with a Lysol wipe, others got a soapy bath, and a few others were put in isolation for a week.

All loaded up

Personal Notes


Scene 1:

Sitting on a nice sofa in my adopted daughter’s beautiful home. Clothes are becoming clean.

Mardi Gras Bock beer

It is a awesome day in the neighborhood wherever I am. No thanks to me.

Scene 2:

Bath time is coming up. I’m Stinky, not The Brain. However, there is something to be said for World Domination.

Scene 3: Cardiologist visit

BP 130/80

I got the word, I am fit and in excellent shape. Today is not a good day to die.

I also got a heart rate adjustment. It can speed up now.

I guess that was a software update from Pacemaker 1.0 to Pacemaker 1.1. It is a vast improvement!

It Was Close


It was almost an “I’ve fallen and can’t get up” moment earlier.

Ripped lawn chair

Ripped lawn chair

That big ripped out place was supporting my arse. When it ripped my arse went to the concrete. My feet were dangling in the air. I’m sure it was a humorous sight to behold.

Ripped lawn chair
As I attempted to get out of this chair trap, I heard and felt the back rip. Thank God it didn’t totally rip like the seat or I’d fallen backwards possibly hitting my head. These chairs should come with a warning label requiring sitting helments. I could wear my bike helment.
Ripped air rest orange lawn chair

Trying to avoid ripping the back even more, I pressed down harder on the armrests attempting to raise up my arse and get at least one foot on the ground. Fortunately the armrests held and I was able to extract myself from the chair trap.

Just another near death experience to add to the list. Hahahahaha

Samsara and Nirvana


Non duality

When life is good, embrace it, experience it fully.

Death in Paradise

When life is bad, embrace it, experience it fully.

In quantum physics you will understand that nothing exists. So in reality there is no difference between samsara and nirvana, they are one.Wooden Nickel
