Wandering Wednesday Photo

The patriotic photo prompt is from Ingrid, Live Laugh RV. Check out her blog.

This is the Liberty Day Celebration in small town USA. It almost seems like a scene from a Norman Rockwell painting.

Happy Fourth of July.

Peace, love and luck!

Eggs and Tunes in Paradise

2 Comments

I went to Columbiana Alabama today. I visited the Art Council and admired the pottery and the paintings. Afterwards I walked down to The Farm Company on Main Street.

While I was there I picked up a dozen organic chicken eggs and a United Methodist Hymnal. Go me! hahahaha

Peace and love and jazz

The Rebel Heart

Leave a comment

How is your rebel heart today?

An outlaw, I hope. A warrior ready to romance the unknown with the creative and resilient expression of your soul.

If you want to walk on water, sink your ships and burn your bridges. If you want to live an extraordinary life, get rid of your Plan B and start acting like Plan A is your only option.

Plan A is terrifying and excruciating, yes. No ground in sight when you first jump, but that’s when creativity can operate most freely and build you homes (and hope) on your way down.

A Good Day On Earth

4 Comments

Wednesday as I sauntered through the French Quarter, the Universe manifested a fellow traveler. She was raising money to purchase a rocket ship. 🚀

Such noble endeavor.

We spoke of many things and lastly about my space and time machine and my travels through the universe.

I took her picture, contributed to the cause, and sauntered on.

It is a good day on planet earth.

Happiness Project 24

3 Comments

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

1.  Painted Rocks
You know the ones, the surprises from strangers.  
Painted RockPainted Rock that says Clanton RocksJesus Loves You
New Hope
Eat More Beef painted rock
Every time I find one a huge grin spreads across my face.  Sometimes I even laugh out loud. 

2.  A real shower 
After a month of showering in the RV it was wonderful to enjoy the luxury of great water pressure, room to turn and move my arms without bumping the shower walls, and lots of hot water.  WOW! 😃

3.  Last Day at The Eclipse 
I will not be back before they close.  Actually when you read this they will be closed.   I’m happy to be here one more time.  This is melancholy happiness but happiness all the same.

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

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.

White-tailed deer

17 Comments

The White-tailed deer is a beautiful herbivore.  I always enjoy seeing them in the yard, woods, and along the sides of the road (have to careful not to hit one). This deer is popular with hunters both for it’s antlers and meat (which is quite tasty). Sadly, hunting clubs are taking over a lot of the wild areas in the state. Even if that land is public land, once a hunting club leases it, the land is off limits to people who aren’t members of the hunting club even if they aren’t hunters.


There have been two or three deer around the house the entire time I’ve lived here (10 years).   I see them a couple of times a year in the back yard and I’ve seen one in the front yard twice.


Seeing the deer is always a surprise.  Seeing the deer and having a camera handy is a Magick all it’s own.

A Park on Frenchman Street, New Orleans

24 Comments

We spent some time on Frenchman Street while we were in New Orleans. Among the many things we did while Christy was getting a sugar skull tattoo, Jesse and I played in the local park.


It was a beautiful day and we had fun climbing, running, laughing, sliding, and swinging.


Everyone we encountered was nice.  Even the drug dealer conducting business on a nearby park bench was friendly.


All things have to end and the park closed at sunset.  A gentleman riding a bicycle came through and asked us all to leave so he could lock the gates.

Back Story

Christy, Jesse, and I took the Amtrak Crescent from the train depot in Anniston AL to New Orleans for a week of adventure and photography. This train station is a classical revival depot and is listed in the National Registry of Historical Places. Jesse loves to ride the train. Heck, we all love to ride the train. We left August 8, 2013 and returned August 14th. Unfortunately Jeremy couldn’t go this time. He had to work.

Christy’s father was kind enough to drive us to the train station and pick us up so we wouldn’t have to leave a vehicle parked there for a week.

We stayed at our usual place, the historic 905 Royal Hotel in the French Quarter. The 905 Royal was built in the late 1890’s.
