And then it rained balls
Hell’s balls

Start the timer.
Let’s rock.
Yeah baby! That’s right.

My life is mission impossible. That’s why I picked it.

She feels
She feels so much
She is afraid
She was tortured
From the beginning
Taught she wasn’t good enough
Born in sin
Bound for hell
God would intervene
And she did


THEY kept at it
You’re a loser
You’re not good enough
You can never be enough
No hope
No hope

She is still intervening
My God
My God

I love you ❤️

The Passport Application


I turned in my passport application (cation)* today. How (misbehave)* naive of me to think I would walk in, turn it in, pay money, and walk away. It was not that way at all.

Guided by the Gatekeepers instructions and (seeks no)* seeking the light of the holiday tree, I wove my way down into the bowels of the county courthouse. There stood the holiday tree in all its radiant glory. Nice Person asked, “Do you have an appointment?” My brain goes, “appointment? This requires an appointment? Huh?” My mouth says, “No, I didn’t know I needed one”. Nice Person says, “Let’s see if we can work you in today.” Off Nice Person goes deeper in the maze. After awhile and a roll of Smarties, Nice Person returns telling me I’m in luck there has been a cancellation and Passport Person can see me now.

More directions and wandering about. Oh look, It’s Passport Person’s office. Ceremonial greetings are exchanged. Palms are pressed together. Paperwork is reviewed, revised, and copied. The appropriate funds are exchanged. Pleasantries are exchanged. Advice is given. An hour passes. I bid farewell, leaving behind my identity, and like the experimental mouse I wind my way back through the maze to Gatekeeper. The Gatekeeper gives me a lighter, a laugh, a knife, and buzzes me out into the rain.

That’s my story and Maya and I are sticking to it. 😉

Happiness Project 41


Happy in the month of thanksgiving.

1.  MBWR

Magnolia Branch Wildlife Refuge is a hidden gem in Central Alabama. We have have a large campsite. The (boathouse)* bathhouse is adequate. There are great bike riding spaces, a nice lake, a river, and we have cell service. It’s a bit remote which is great.

2.  A travel companion

I’ve enjoyed having a traveling companion for the last few weeks. It always seems like more fun sharing the adventure.

3.  New Front Curtains

Share your joy. Tell us something that made you happy this week.

Happiness Project 26


It's another fun week to be alive!  Here are some happinesses from my life to yours.

1.  The Blues Brothers
It's fun movie with awesome tunes. That hard headed woman of mine done caught the katy.
2.  My lifestyle
I've probably said it before, but I love this lifestyle. It's not perfect. It's not always fun or easy or inexpensive. But when it's good, it's very very good.

3.  Personalizing my World Headquarters
I am finally getting into the idea of making this rolling space into my own space.  Out with the old factory decor and in with my eclectic style.

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

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.

Fisheye Black and White 


I like the fisheye lens from Olloclip.  

These pictures were taken by me at the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum with the Hipstamatic app, and the Olloclip fisheye lens on an iPhone 6.

The Inverter Saga


Chapter 4

Today I await the mechanic. He is going to try and start the coach. We will see.  

Embracing the change.
Embracing the strange.
Embracing the chaos.
Embracing the paradox.

Drive Away Day…again


“The beginning is always today.”
― Mary Shelley

One more time around the Maypole. Drive away day is Monday, February 2, 2015. It’s like the fourth in the series. I didn’t want to announce it because I didn’t want to jinx it. All things seem to be in order and falling into place.
I leave with mixed emotions.
This area has been mine home for 30+ years.
I’m liking location independence.
My family is here.
I’m looking forward to new foods.
My playmates are here.
I am excited about new subjects for pictures.
One of my spiritual guides is here.
I own property here.
I’m curious.
Most my business affairs are centered in Alabama.
I’ve embraced the challenge of managing my affairs online.
I want to learn.
I’ll be alone.
I’m traveling with a parrot.
New people will be every where. Are they friendly, helpful, uninterested, dangerous, or……
Great for portraits?
I’ll spend a lot of time in Oak Ridge.
I’m afraid.
I’ll spend a lot of time around LA.
I’ll visit Alaska and a lot of friends between here and there and back again.
What if I break down. When will I break down?
Where will I break down?
What about money?
I’m excited.
And Internet?
And all the unknowns….
And all the knowns….
I could go on
And on
And on
And on
I’m leaving the nest again,
jumping and trusting my cape.
I’ll slay my dragons as long as I can.
I’ll sing and cry and laugh and pray and dance.
And I can’t, I’ll begin again.
The end is the beginning.

Moving In


I got Einstein a cage and set it up.  I need to do some remodeling to make a better space for it.


I drove over to Christy‘s house to pick him up.  He has been staying there since the first of November. He loves Christy.


He enjoys riding.  He chuckled and twiddled and churdled the whole way.


Here he is in his home in RV.  He seems happy.
