1:  an exhibition of optical effects and illusions
2: a :  a constantly shifting complex succession of things seen or imagined
b :  a scene that constantly changes
3:  a bizarre or fantastic combination, collection, or assemblage

Sometimes, watching my Now,  life feels like optical effects and illusions, a bizarre and fantastic assemblage.  Science tells me it is an illusion. What is perceived is not the energy rushing about nor is it the mostly empty space between particles.  The very act of looking solidifies the constantly changing scene much like a photograph.

It’s About the Lights 

2 Comments

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.

Happiness Project #14

11 Comments

The Happy Things Project continues.  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.   Whether we notice or not, moment to moment things are different and new.  
1.  The Cone of Confusion 
That is what I call the gray, vague, empty space in front of me.  As I sit here contemplating my next location there is no direction, nothing calls to me.  Tunica MS? Jackson MS? Memphis TN? 
2.  Fabric Paint  
This happened: 

This is Ben 10 and some aliens.  
3.  Swimming Pools
I went through a period in my life where I wasn’t interested in playing in the water.  I’m glad I got over that.   I’ve spent a lot of time in the pool lately.

Happiness Project #9

4 Comments

The Happy Things Project continues.  Each week I try to post 3 things that create happiness in my eternal Now. I feel there will be repetition. I feel that each Now brings new and unique happinesses too.  I feel that even though something is a repeat, it is unique and new in them moment it occurs.  Everything changes despite what my senses may be telling me.

1.  Making videos
I’ve been working on various video projects with the 7 year old muse.

  • Skateboarding
  • The secret elephant video
  • Animation shorts

2.  Strawberry farms
I think the best strawberries I’ve ever eaten were from a farm on US 31 in Clanton AL.  The boy and I were returning from our road school adventure and saw a strawberry farm. We turned in, made our selection, and  returned to World Headquarters with a bag of delicious red delight.

3.  Occasionally overcoming the naysayer in my head.
It isn’t that I always win, but I’m trying.  I wasn’t born with the naysayer. It was learned from over cautious authority figures, critical teacher, critical peers, jealous friends, non-supportive parents, and…you get the idea.  Know where it came from helps me defeat the negative voice in my head.

Happy Things #6

The Happy Things Project continues. If things go as planned, once a week I post 3 things that create happiness in my eternal Now. I feel there will be repetition and that each Now brings new and unique happinesses too.  

1. Spending time with the people I love
I listened to On Being with Krista Tippet, an interview with Carlo Rovelli. Part of the title was, All Reality is Interaction. One of the grains of science mentioned was, things don’t exist until they collide.  It is in the “colliding” with the ones I love and the ones who love me that I thrive.  Don’t misunderstand, I need vast amounts of solitude too. 
2. Daylight Savings Time: Springing forward and longer days
It is so nice to have more day time in the evening.  It’s nice to have more daylight hours in general. 
3.  I got to spend another weekend working with friends on their treehouse. It is fun watching the progress.  I think it’s painted barn red now.

Happy Things #3

9 Comments

Happy Things for this Now.  

1.  Clean laundry, especially sheets 
Life on the road does not always include a an easy way to make clean laundry.  For the most part I can find laundromats.  Sometimes I can’t. Sometimes they cost more than I’m willing to pay. Once upon a time in a magical place known as New Orleans I washed clothes in a laundromat/bar/game room.  Clean clothes, a buzz, and pool for the win that night. 

2.  Five Nights at Freddie’s masks 
My little friend and I have had hours of fun with these inexpensive masks. They were on clearance.  


3.  Warm days and nights 
I am elated that spring is near.  I am elated the weather is warming up.  I am elated the days are growing longer.
I do not thrive in cold weather.  I’m never 💯 % when it’s cold.  I will die in winter.
