Happiness Project #11

7 Comments

The Happy Things Project continues.  Each week I try to post 3 things that create happiness in my eternal Now. There will be repetition but Now brings new and unique happinesses too.  

1.   Zoos
I know there is controversy about zoos.  For some animals zoos may be their last hope. A well done zoo also provides a wonderful opportunity to educated people.   I enjoy taking pictures.  
2.  Amazing friends
I am blessed with some amazing friends.  My godson is one. He often travels with me and inspires me.   
3.  Campfires
Sitting around a campfire feels so natural and soothing. The smells and sounds of the fire and the woods at night heal my soul.  Maybe it’s in our DNA, ingrained after all those centuries of watching the fire. 
When I typed this I was sitting by the fire 🔥 listing to birds sing their good night songs.  The hummingbirds flit over for one last snack.  It will be dark soon

Travel Day

8 Comments

Sunday is a travel day. I’m moving from The Rainbow Plantation in Summerdale AL to Davis Bayou in Mississippi. It’s only a two hour drive. I like an easy travel day.  

I’ll head out around 11 am CST. The most exciting part that I am aware of will be the tunnel in Mobile on Interstate 10.  

I’m on a journey.
I have no destination.  
There is no time frame. 
I’m looking and seeing but not searching. 
I am not lost and can’t be found. 
I am just on my way.

This Old Barn 

18 Comments

This old barn is located in Natchez Trace State Park.   I was free to explore and take pictures. I could have gone inside. I was tempted.  I didn’t.  I wasn’t concerned about it falling on me. I was concerned about snakes in the dark spots.

As is often the case, Friday was a travel day.
I took I10 to New Orleans, my fav city for street photography. Good fun! Good food!
It is quite a change from Davis Bayou.

Now it’s urban camping at Jude Travel Park. The sounds of nature have been replaced with the sounds of the city.

Drive Away Day…again

18 Comments

“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
And
And
An
A
.
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.

A short walk from the RV, at the top of the putt putt golf course, there is a bubbling fountain.  Just before dark one evening I walked up there and took these four pictures.  I could have stood there a long time.  No two images are the same.

It is shiny.
It’s not pretty on the outside and it’s dark in the inside.
It’s definitely easier to keep warm in here.
Hopefully a warmer inside will help keep the pipes from freezing.
Go Reflectix.

A few days ago I went in the cave. Here are a some pictures.


These were taken with a Lumix GX7 and a Panasonic 20mm lens.




I’ll be posting some additional photos from this trip. I’ll also be taking the tour again before I leave.
