Baggage check had not opened. We were too early.

A full plane from Denver to Birmingham. Well, 2/3 full. Southwest Airlines left the middle seats empty because Covid.

Unsurprisingly, the Birmingham AL airport was basically empty.

Memories

Years ago, on a dark street in the Quarter, I came upon this beautiful woman.
Louis is my favorite performance artist in NOLA. I have taken many photos of him. I miss meeting him for drinks and stories.
She writes poem on Royal Street

2. Memories Fade.

Covid isolation day 121.
It has been long enough for my former life to begin fading away into relics and fuzzy memories of a past that no longer exist. These are the good ole days. The present moment, now, is all there is and I will live my best life now.
I’m developing new thoughts and new ways of being that are not dependent on other people.They can not be dependent on other people because there are no other people in my now. My heartmind is grieving my former life and once again I say attachment is the trap, attachment is causing suffering. We all suffer. As I grieve so do I change, reinventing my life, walking alone

3. From the Osho Zen Tarot.
Adventure: “When we are truly in a spirit of adventure, we are moving just like this child. Full of trust, out of the darkness of the forest into the rainbow of the light, we go step by step, drawn by our sense of wonder into the unknown.Adventure really has nothing to do with plans and maps and programs and organization. The Page of Rainbows represents a quality that can come to us anywhere – at home, or in the office, in the wilderness or in the city, in a creative project or in our relationships with others. Whenever we move into the new and unknown with the trusting spirit of a child, innocent and open and vulnerable, even the smallest things of life can become the greatest adventures.
Zen says truth has nothing to do with authority, truth has nothing to do with tradition, truth has nothing to do with the past – truth is a radical, personal, realization. You have to come to it. Knowledge is certain; the search for personal knowing is very, very hazardous. Nobody can guarantee it. If you ask me if I can guarantee anything, I say I cannot guarantee you anything. I can only guarantee danger, that much is certain. I can only guarantee you a long adventure with every possibility of going astray and never reaching the goal. But one thing is certain: the very search will help you to grow.
I can guarantee only growth. Danger will be there, sacrifice will be there; you will be moving every day into the unknown, into the uncharted, and there will be no map to follow, no guide to follow. Yes, there are millions of dangers and you can go astray and you can get lost, but that is the only way one grows. Insecurity is the only way to grow, to face danger is the only way to grow, to accept the challenge of the unknown is the only way to grow.”
~ Osho

1. I don’t know if I can do FB much longer. It’s wearing on my spirit. Maybe I’ll try putting some of my peeps to sleep for 30 days. I’m weary of the pain and suffering and lies and fighting.

2. I love kimchi. Making a new batch.

Cabbage 🥬
The “Secret” Sauce
Packing the jars.
All done.
Now it ferments for 5 days.

3. I don’t understand. Covid cases are going up 30% a week here. 48 new cases yesterday. So what do we do to reduce infection rate? We have a street fair.

DISCARDED BOTTLE CAPS

Rusty bottle top

While I’ve been enjoying my ice-o-lation in Paradise I have been into photographing bottle caps.

Green bottle top
Rusty bottle cap
The last one in this series. I drank this Shiner Bock and posed the cap on an old wooden picnic table.

Except for the Shiner Bock, these caps were all on the ground in Paradise. I saw them and photographed them on my morning walks. The Shiner Bock cap was disposed of appropriately.

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment.

Sunday

6 Comments

I visited a church on Sunday. The first shift congregation was leaving as we arrived. Fortunately there were people directing traffic and pedestrians so no one became road pizza. We parked on the second level of the parking deck and made our way down and around to the edifice.

On the way I encountered a teenage child of god in a hurry to get to worship. The teenage girl hit me in the face while she was pointing out the way to her friends. She kept going. The next teenager in line apologized as she sped past. It was hectic.

Upon arriving at an entrance, we were greeted by the greeters. Inside we go. The environment, clamor and crowd reminded me of a busy airport terminal.

On we go to check in the child. We encountered some intriguing additional greeters along the way. Paw Patrol

Spider-Man and some storybook princess were also there.

Don’t forget your child reclaim ticket. Abandoned children will be assimilated! j/k

Onward for a stop at the unisex restrooms. Free coffee was available in the hallway. Additionally there was a coffee shop style cafe.

As we entered the lobby of the worship area we were greeted again and presented with information packets.

I shouldn’t have folded this.

I realize these are difficult to read.

Boxes of popcorn and sodas were handed out by lovely young men and women. The popcorn was delicious and sodas were all coke products.

We found some seats near the back. They were similar to this product.Chair
Slowly, the faithful filled the auditorium. On some unknown to me cryptic signal, the large crowd stood. In the darkened room the event began with welcomes both on the three big screens and on stage. New style chant like songs of worship were sung while the three screens played a hypnotic loop similar to this. There was swaying, raised hands, and a live band.

The actual “message” was a series of movie clips from Moneyball interspersed with Christian thoughts supported by the clip. This continues through 4 clips. At the end there was a invitation to pray their version of the sinners prayer .

At this point we leave to reclaim the child and go to lunch.

Safety was a big deal. The place was loaded with policemen.
