QOTD: “Obstacles are a natural part of life, just as boulders are a natural part of the course of a river,” declares the ancient Chinese book the I Ching. “The river does not complain or get depressed because there are boulders in its path.”

Memories Stuck Between the Pages of My Mind

2 Comments

Each year around Easter I begin to crave Peeps. I know there are many variations of this Easter classic but plain yellow suits me. They are my favorite childhood memory of Easter. I usually wait for the after the Resurrection Celebration candy sales and pick up a pack of 5 for fifty cents. I may eat them all or I may eat one.

“Candy historians speculate that the Peeps’ link to Easter has more to do with the pagan origins of the holiday than its Christian roots. Eggs, and consequently chicks, are a long-standing symbol of fertility and rebirth, an appropriate image for a holiday that celebrates the coming of spring. Originally part of a pagan fertility ritual symbolizing new life, the egg became incorporated into Easter as pagan rites were absorbed into Christianity with the Christianization of Central Europe.“ ~ Slate

QOTD: “You may not know how to eliminate the lack, or fill the void, or fix the issue, but you have the power, at any moment to ALIGN WITH WHAT GIVES YOU LIFE. You can change your story in an instant, by simply shifting the focus away from what you fear or lack or cannot solve this moment to what you want and have and can enjoy right now. “ ~ Andrea Balt

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. “

~ Carolyn Elliott

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

Southern Tire Mart

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

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.

A Blog Prompt from FB

“If you died today but was allowed to return to give your own eulogy what would you say?” – Mike Shaw

Here is my version of my eulogy.  

JR Cline was born, lived a long life and died.  Like the JR Clines before him, he chose to incarnate on this plane knowing it was a round trip ticket.  

He is survived by his sons, daughters, and grandchildren.  

He was kind, generous and loving.  He will be missed by a few.  Some lives will be change at his passing. He hoped he changed lives for the better. 

He wanted a few things which he pursued and mostly accomplished: mini-farm, raising parrots, a career he loved, living in a bus, having and raising children, traveling, photography, making and selling various crafts, he had 3 successful small businesses,  he loved  and was. loved, he helped others create better lives for themselves, he practiced mindfulness.  All around his life was successful and complete. Surveying the last 70 years he did ok.  Others may disagree.

He hoped his life would make an interesting story.

QOTD: “Clarissa Pinkola Estés suggests that we all need to periodically go cheerfully and enthusiastically out of our minds.

Make sure, she says, that at least one part of you always remains untamed, uncategorizable, and unsubjugated by routine. Be adamant in your determination to stay intimately connected to all that’s inexplicable and mysterious about your life. Don’t let it degenerate into careless disorder.”

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.

Starryai

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.

Road Trip Day 16

2 Comments

The last day of 2021. It’s rainy. Maybe I’ll make it back to WHQ today.

I thought this was an intriguing marketing idea.
Tasty fruit
This one me was looking at me.
What a surprise at WHQ. One of the air plants bloomed. Isn’t it lovely. I’m looking forward to the pups.

I’m back at WHQ. Things look and function as they should. It’s good to be back. It was good to be away. Sitting outside in shorts enjoying a cup of French Market Chicory coffee.

QOTD: “What worn-out shticks are blinding us to the blessings that life is conspiring to give us?

Which of our theories may have been useful and even brilliant in the past but are now keeping us from becoming aware of the ever-fresh creation that unfolds before us?

It’s not enough to terminate our stale mental habits just once.  We have to ask ourselves rude questions and kick our own asses again and again.

We have to immerse ourselves regularly in the waters of chaos.

Our relationship with life has to be a never-ending improvisation.” – Rob Brezsny
