Personal Notes

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. “

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.

“That’s why I got Smart water. It contains a lot of water.”

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

Southern Tire Mart

4 Comments

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.

“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

Leave a comment

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.

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.

My kind of Advent Calendar

I am grateful for new experiences.

This special Christmas was a different kind of Christmas time in old familiar places, with shared pleasant memories from a former life and amazing new memories. It was the best Christmas in many years.
