second post today

We may be going camping after all.

This is anxiety for me.

Will the 1970 camper van with 500,000 miles on it make it to the campsite?

Will the weather be so unpleasant that I will feel irritable and soggy?


admitting a slowdown

I'm admitting that I either have slowed down or I need to slow down.

Or I am experiencing a slowdown.

I am part of a worldwide slowdown, probably.

I feel like I'm writing from my mouse hole.

A tiny woodland…


gratitude is the portal

If you stay grateful you can access happiness.

Abundance is not money, abundance is the glory of Mother Nature and the Great Creator made manifest every day everywhere we look.

My tomato plants have gone absolutely crazy with so many…


my supply

My consciousness of God as my supply is my supply.

This quote is from The Abundance Book that was recommended to me three days ago by a great female African American singer whose voice and spirit I admire.

beauty every morning and lessons every day

I will relish the morning.

I will be still in the silence.

I will acknowledge my divine right to beauty.

The garden is lush.

Health abides with us.

I know the affirmations that bring personal…

I didn't rewrite it or edit…


what a beautiful weekend it was

First and foremost, I got to swim.

Twice, I think.

It was the only time I've swam this summer.

I can't seem to bring myself to get into that somewhat dubious water at Lake Nokomis near our house, even though…


Sunday morning in the Great North Country

It's been a beautiful time so far here in the Great Northern forest and lake region of the state of Minnesota.

I'm loving the trees, the scent of the pines, the whispering of many trees together with their friends…


in the Great North!

I'm in Ely, Minnesota playing shows.

Wow, that's such a big great thing to get to say.

I played at the radio station yesterday and then played a house concert.

The show was essentially "sold out" because we reached the…


big day!

I'm driving this morning at 8am.

That's in fifteen minutes.

I have to load the car still but I'm all packed up and I'm pretty well organized.

I have to bring merchandise for three shows.

That could mean that very…
