It’s About the Lights 

Leave a comment

Every light is beautifully unique and shines where it will. I tried to save the world and found I had to save myself. As a light worker I polish my lamp. Maybe it shines on the world a wee bit. Maybe it just shines for me. I work out my own salvation with fear and trembling. My world is my tribe. Some remain but many of the brilliant and beautiful lamps that have lighted my way have transitioned. I travel on.

I’m still managing a weekly happy blog. lol Surprises me.    

1.  The Happiness Project  
It makes me happy I’ve been able to carry through on a weekly happiness post.  I have not been a consistent blogger in the recent past.  👍
2.  Super Powers
I have read some things about people’s super powers.   They often challenge the reader to identify a super power of their own.  After some thought I decided one of my super powers is a general feeling of optimism. I am happy with that.
3.  The Eclipse Coffee and Books 
One of my fav places is closing. I’m not happy it is closing.   I will miss the coffees, the espresso martinis, the food, and the atmosphere.  But I am happy that I’m currently living close enough to visit extra  times and try more of their menu offerings before this 16 year old hangout is gone.  I am grateful for all the good times I have had there. 

Share the joy.  If you want to, tell us something that made you happy this week.

The concept is to post 3 things each week that made me happy.
There will be apparent repetition but this Now brings new and unique happinesses even to what seems old.  No thing and no one stays the same. From moment to moment it all changes. 

1.  Swimming 
After decades of staying out of pools, I have really enjoyed swimming this year.  Surprised me.  lol 😂  I have idea why I ever stopped.  
2.  Hiking in the woods
I am having a great time exploring the trails at Minooka Park in Jemison AL.  
3.  Clean Laundry
It is not always easy to wash clothes at a reasonable cost.  Lately it has been $3.50 to was and $2.00 to dry.  I do like clean clothes and sheets.  

Tell us something that made you happy this week.

I enjoy writing The Happy blogs.  If you’re a new reader, the concept is to post 3 things each week that create happiness in my eternal, sometimes infernal Now. There will be apparent repetition but Now brings new and unique happinesses even to what seems old.  No thing and no one stays the same. From moment to moment it all changes. 

1.  A safe travel day
Living on the road, I’m always joyful upon arriving safely.  Of course leaving, rolling on, is pretty exciting too.  
2.  Pig Wings
They are a thing. 
I’ll be camped near the pig wing place for at least another month. That means I’ll eat there at least one more time. 
Pigs can’t fly because people keep eating their wings.  hahahaha
3.  Morning coffee
Part of my ritual for beginning the day is a cup or many of coffee.  That has been so for a long time. I can do without the coffee but it is one of a few things that connect my many lifetimes.  That makes me happy. 
Did something make you happy this week? Share it in the comments if you want.

I enjoy writing The Happy Things blogs. Each week I try to post 3 things that create happiness in my eternal Now. There will be apparent repetition but Now brings new and unique happinesses even to what seems old.  

1.  Jake’s Fish Camp 
I visit here every time I’m in the area.  Jake’s is a unique cultural experience on the banks of the Alabama River:  live music, local bands (I heard the River Rats), t-shirts, food, beverages, fishing, and a boat launch. Good times. 
And, as an added bonus…CAMPING
Water
Electric
Dump station
$25 a day
$150 a week
*Prices subject to change

2.  A Kayak 
The search for the appropriate kayak continues.
Considerations:
Length
Weight
Hardbody or inflatable
Transporting it
Roof racks
Tracking
Stability
Sit on or sit in
Fishing?
Smooth or rough water or both 
Cost
Color
Single or tandem 
Tie down straps 

3.  Latte
There was a personal latte shortage for a couple of months.  I visited a coffee shop yesterday after this latte drought.  A good latte is a thing of beauty and tasty too.

1.  The Rougarou
Scooby Doo save me from the Rougarou.  
Watch out for those southern Louisiana swamp monsters when you’re out swamp fishing at night. 

2.  A New Mantra
My freedom is more important than your anger.
This was inspied by: 
“‘no’ might make them angry but it will make you free.
— if no one has ever told you,
your freedom is more important than their anger.” ~ Nayyirah Waheed

3.  Pot Likker 
My father taught me to love pot liquor.  He grinned and proclaimed loudly how delicious it tasted.  
“Pot liquor, sometimes spelled potlikker[1] or pot likker[2] is the liquid that is left behind after boiling greens (collard greens, mustard greens, turnip greens) or beans. It is sometimes seasoned with salt and pepper, smoked pork or smoked turkey.” – Wikipedia
I recently cooked a batch of black beans.  😋 THE POT LIKKER WAS DELICIOUS!!!!!!
