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.

Covid Day 10

4 Comments

Osho Zen Tarot 3 of Clouds

My take away? In the time of Covid-19 the isolation can leave us feeling helpless, cold, and alone. It is ok to scream, beat your pillow or drum, and cry. I beat my drum every day. The rainbow-tears on the face are tears of hope, tears of healing, tears of growth. Feel the fear and the pain. Let it pass thru you. Be gentle with yourself and others. This is passing as all things are.

Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate you. Stay well. Check out my other exploits on Vero, Twitter, and Instagram. #maya #bekind #revolution #resist

30 Days of Gratitude

Day 14

I am grateful the first freezing 🥶 weather was endured without any freeze damage. Jesse and I weathered it well other than getting cabin fever. Being cooped up in a 250 sq ft space with a 10 year old has its challenges.

Scene 1:

I’ve got the Buddy heater in WHQ. Mr HeaterI’ve wrapped my water hose with heat tape. Maybe I’m ready for 24 F. Maybe not.

Scene 2:

“What causes happiness? Brainstorm about it. Map out the foundations of your personal science of joy. Get serious about defining what makes you feel good.” – Rob Brezsny

Here is my list.

Being truthful
Being kind
Being loving
Being loved
Mindfulness
Faith in God
Being creative – a maker
Sharing knowledge i.e. teaching
A good cup of coffee and other sensual pleasures
Traveling

It is a work in progress.

Scene 3:

QOTD: “The great affair, the love affair with life, is to live as variously as possible, to groom one’s curiosity like a high-spirited thoroughbred, climb aboard, and gallop over the thick, sunstruck hills every day.” – Diane Ackerman

My rig

Parked at R Haven RV Park in Rising Fawn GA

Scene 1:

This was going to be the third travel day in a row. I elected to forego the stop at Mountain Lakes. It was raining too much.

I’m remaining in Rising Fawn GA a few more days.

Scene 2:

Grey skies and rain chill the air and my soul.

Scene 3:

Since I inadvertently lost all my notes I’ve started using other tools for note keeping. One of these is Google Docs. I also may begin a new series of post here as a result.

Scene 1:

Criticizing myself with the internal parent voice was one of worst things I ever had to unlearn.

“Excessively self-critical thoughts may often have their roots in negative experiences with caregivers in childhood. Studies on relationships and the attachments formed between parents and other primary caregivers show that the earliest bonds in life often have a significant effect on a person’s future relationships as well as a person’s sense of self.

Authoritarian parenting styles, which may be controlling and marked by rigidity, may have the effect of fostering negative self-perceptions and a low sense of self-worth in children. When children feel rejected by their parents, are not treated with warmth and compassion, or are frequently criticized, they may be more likely to grow up overly critical of both themselves and others. “ – https://www.goodtherapy.org/learn-about-therapy/issues/self-criticism

I was talking to myself in my parents’ voices. “You’ll never be good enough.” “Evil sinner!” And much more. Once I let that go, life got so much better. I encouraged myself. I patted myself on the back. “Well done!” Became a more common thought.

Scene 2:

Scene 3:

Four of the next six days are travel days. This is a different way of traveling for me. I usually park and stay a while. This is the first of the six. My CaravanI’m parked for the night right by the WiFi tower.
