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

Old man on the riverbank.
Old Man on the Riverbank is based on this photograph I took at the Devil’s Backbone on Big Escambia Creek. The StarryAI app generated Old Man on the Riverbank from this photo.

This is the prompt photo I used with StarryAI for the picture above.

I saw these lovely flowers down by Big Escambia Creek while I was meditating on the shore.
They were tiny. This is a macro shot.
This is the laundry area and one of the three bathhouses.
It’s lovely here.

Previously I posted some pictures of Big Escambia Creek flooding. Here is a comparison.

Top: flooded
Bottom: Water receded
It was a beautiful day. This tiny blooms were the icing on the cake. I think they are huckleberry blossoms.
I discovered this growing down by the water.
This is my front yard a little before sunset.

My 100 Day Project 2022

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.”

Travel Day

February 1 I left South Montgomery and headed towards Atmore to hang out in the woods.

While getting prepped to leave, the inverter Freedom 458 had an attacked of humming. I panicked, makes several calls, messed with the inverter and then it stopped humming. My current plan is to roll to Atmore, order a replacement, have it shipped here and install it when I return to Montgomery. Keep your fingers crossed.

The night before and I’m in bed at 6 pm.

I bought fuel on the way. I have a 60 gallon tank.

I was running on empty.
I have a nice, peaceful new yard. I’m looking forward to the campfires and bicycle riding as soon as the rain slacks up.
My first visitor. I believe it is an assassin beetle.

QOTD: Many raindrops, trickles, streams, creeks, and rivers contribute to the pool of cosmic consciousness. Each tributary has its own eddies, whirlpools, stagnant backwaters, calm pools and rushing rapids. Where they converge the merging is not always easy. At times there is resistance, turbulence as each tries to have its separate way.

It’s full blown Alabama winter for days. I may be having trouble with my electrical. And maybe not. I am considering professional assistance.

Electrical update: It wasn’t a problem that required professional help. I realized it was my own fault. I was overloading the circuit.

Wearing the amazing wool toboggan my loving sister created for me.

This is the last month here. There are only a couple of weeks left.
