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”

Apparently she liked it rough.

Blood draw 🩸
I spent a day doing medical things. Blah! My BP was high normal and he upped my meds. My prostate has enlarged as the years have gone by. Pretty normal. They did blood work. Ouch!
Piggly Wiggly is my favorite grocery store. It’s not about prices or food, it’s about fun.
Clean clothes are always nice.

I’m back in Paradise for a month or two. I’ve had some good times here.

I was today years old when I had my first air plant pup.

I could name it. Any ideas?

The mighty jeep began over revving. I consulted Lama Google and the Racing Catacosmosis.

In the middle there is a nipple with no thing attached. It’s the rust colored spot.
The vacuum leak was sealed with a lovely black cap from AutoZone. All is well with the jeep now.

I get by with a little help from my friends. ❤️

I dreamed a little dream.
I saw him, the carefree child on the playground. I saw him, the old man inside the school. Through teary eyes we exchanged thoughts about the precious, golden age of childhood. As he handed me the keys he said, “Sometimes we bring forth spring wine. Sometimes we bring forth souls in Durham.”

QOTD: “I know this: I know that deep down, you know you’re a saint.

A saint capable of working miracles.

A saint capable of healing people with a single look.

A saint capable of transmuting giant piles of stinking gnarly human suffering into dewy rose gardens of alchemical joy.

Yes, you. “

I love this quote. I think change helps keeps me alive. Staying mentally and physically flexible is a good thing.

QOTD: “Irregularity and unpredictability are important features of health. On the other hand, decreased variability and accentuated periodicities are associated with disease. Healthy systems don’t want homeostasis. They want chaos.”— John R. Van Eenwyk, “The Chaotic Dynamics of Everyday Life”

Always creating.
Always adventures.
Always new.
Always different.

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

QOTD: “…the Universe is literally (AND metaphorically!) made out of paradox.

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

QOTD: “At every moment, your mind is free—free to reject any thoughts, impulses, and feelings that are barreling into it from who-knows-where. Free to leap to some fresh perspective, inspiring thought, or deep feeling.” ~ Rob Brezsny
