Two Cents


I got my two cents worth in today.

Napkin and two pennies. The Universe left two pennies along my path.

2018 – Intentions


Jennifer McClusky shared a format for 2018 intentions. At first I tried to play (be ruled)* by the rules. 😉 Most of that fell by the wayside as the process took its own paths. Here are the intentions that came to me.

The Big Picture

This is a year of transformation, experiencing, and grounding. A time has come for greater productivity, creativity, abundance and consciousness in my life. I have spent many cycles at this frequency. It is time to let go at this level and begin to vibrate at a higher frequency.

Intention #1: I’m going to take the pause, the moment: to breathe, to regroup, to think. Most importantly I will take the pause to step outside the mind, the game, the illusion.

Intention #2: Experience the wonder of it all. Life is amazing. Everything. Rather than think about it using words I want the direct experience.

Intention #3: Continue my daily practice of being mindfully grounded. On the coldest day of the year so far, my bare feet stood on Earth as she spun and speed through space .

Intention #4: Renewal and growth. I want to change my habits. I want them to heal me physically, mentally, and spiritually. That is the starting point for growth. I’m not sure what all this means but it’s a place to begin.

Intention #5: Continue converting my rolling home into a nest that suits me. This is my World HQ. It is my base of operations. It is a safe place and place of inspiration. It continues to evolve.

Intention #6: Practice abundance in all areas of my life.

Intention #7: Practice remembering the conscious mind is just another organ. It’s not the witness.

Intention #8: Listen and be receptive to my inner voice. Be still and know.

Intention #9: Practice balanced spontaneity.

Intention #10: A black and white photo project featuring decay. This a symbolic project. As I toss out that which adversely effects my vibration or cast a dark light in my direction I will make room for nourishing, growth oriented experiences.

Intention #11: Do not fear change. Do not resist change. Embrace change. Keep the good let what does not empower me flow past. If I cling to what I know because it’s comfortable I hinder my own progress. Attachment is a trap. Clinging is a trap.

Intention #12: Flow in the magic of the wild cycles of life. In so doing I’ll get where I’m supposed to be.

Don’t forget #maya and big eyed aliens 👽 from Uranus.

The 2018 Mashup


2018 Things

Keep calm.

I’m not a resolution maker. I’m not a resolution keeper. I pick themes or words or intentions (Stayed tunes. Soon a 2018 intentions blog is coming to a screen near you.) or a mixture. This year is a mashup, a fusion of ideas.

Stay crazy.

My 2018 mantra: “Lord Jesus have mercy on me.” It’s my mala (spiritual fidget spinner) version of the Jesus Prayer.

My always motto: “Be here now”.

My anthem for 2018 is the album “ Apostrophe”. You have hear it to appreciate it.

My theme: Transformation
This is a year of change (as all years are). It’s a year for renewal and new adventures. It’s time to work on myself. A time to check what is truly valuable in my life. I live a nomadic lifestyle and that has changed me. I think it’s time to jump into that process and be more active in the transformation. Or not. 😎 Westward?

Laugh! Live! Love!

And let us not forget the big eyed aliens from Uranus.

Or is that Big Eyed Aliens from Venus Beans! It is beans.

Annual Review 2014


What went well

Scary as it was, leaving my career really brightened up my life.
The process and logistics of downsizing my possessions was difficult but it was accomplished and it was worth every bit of the effort. I never realized what a burden things could be.
Reducing my bills is mostly completed.
Selling my house. This was stressful but finally came together on Halloween.
Plumbing repairs completed.
Address changes were time consuming but easy. I think I got them all.
Purchasing the RV was easy. Taking ownership of the RV and moving into it turned into an almost two month adventure in staying with family and repairs that had to be made before I would accept delivery. I’m in it now though.

What didn’t go well and have to wait until 2015 (I guess that makes them new year goals.)

Leaving town is more difficult than I thought it would be. It’s some strange form of stuckness. It could be mental, emotional, situational, spiritual, a mixture, or something else entirely.
Of course plain logistics get in the way.
I’m still trying to get the towing package completed and trying to get a tag.
Visiting my daughter. I really wanted to take the RV up there for a month before it was cold weather. That didn’t come together.
I also wanted to be in New Orleans the last half of December. It wasn’t in the cards.
Repairing the rental property has been and is still a long, slow process. Curlee and Moe are doing a good job but they are slow. The floor is a mystery looking for the right detective. Or, it sure is hard to find someone knowledgable to fix this problem.
Applying for social security is a work in progress. It’s been frustrating so far. The government tries to make it easy, but it’s still an ordeal.

What I’ve learned

Walking by faith rather than by sight has been reinforced. It seems I forget and have to relearn that periodically.
Related to this is my mindfulness practice and remembering to live in the illusive now. That too has been reinforced.
I’ve learned I am better off with less stuff. As I emptied that big house, the empty space became creative space. As I emptied my life of the responsibility for stuff, that empty space became creative space.
I’ve been reminded of the importance of friends and family. Loving and being loved is so important. We are social animals.
My gratitude practice has really paid off in increased happiness.
I had many opportunities to practice grooving with the changes during 2014. I feel sure 2015 will be filled with change practice too.

2015 Plans

I plan to spend the first part of 2015 on the gulf coast roaming from New Orleans to Florida. When the weather warms up I’ll be back in Alabama to take care of routine doctor stuff and car tags. Then it’s up to Memphis and across to Oak Ridge. It will be fun to spend a month with my daughter. After that there are some vague notions of exploring the east coast floating around in my head.

Redoing the CrackingMyEgg site is a strong possibility. It’s a new year in a rolling home it’s seems time for a site update.

You can look forward to travel/photo blogs of my adventures. I will be devoting a lot of time to photography and hopefully blogging.

There is some talk of a video project. I’ll keep you posted.

You know plans are always subject to change.
