Serendipity Itineraries is a post series is about sharing my weekly blog field trips, my eExperiences, so that maybe you find some new people who you resonate with, to enjoy and/or follow, and/or simply have a mini-library of places to visit when you feel that cool compulsion to expand your experience.
I notice that on the blogs I resonate with, I often also resonate with who they resonate with. Not always, there’s of course a case by case discernment present. Though, it’s more often than not. Enough to have form-given this weekly gig.
If you have a blog or video or something you’ve produced that you feel to share in this community-building serendipity sandbox, you have my express permission to link to it in the comments. Please do, and by all means self-promote. Add more to the Serendipity Itinerary for people to visit and experience!
Hey, some say not to toot your own horn. What?! That’s absurd. Somebody’s gotta start the band. It needn’t be superficial or me me me stuff. In Make it the I Am kind of stuff your proud of to promote You. Enjoy the exploration opportunities below. And, thanks in advance for promoting yourself.

Serendipity Itinerary for July 10th
There were a couple of cuts this week and the same couple were removed last week. Openly, I chalk it up to my comments on their blogs not being in keeping with something… I don’t know what, When blogs are moderated, they are. I don’t stick these two with the kicked over, stacked stone cairn of my fave from this year of actually getting banned from a Philosophy website. I still cherish the laughter I had at that. Thanks Karen Sealey for participating in that. I never knew that expressing 3 apt and well-connected metaphors in a row to fluidly engage a topic would induce the consequence of puerile from the Ivory Tower. I guess I should respect that dood’s pain, as I guess being incarcerated in the Ivory Tower… well, I guess it’s prison until The Fool comes around and blasts the seed trying to burst open. At least I’M free of that. I hope THe Fool comes around for them as well. That’s gotta suck having to explain everything all the time. Heck, I have exactly one Prinicipal in my Principal’s Office… and, Sovereign, I don’t keep office hours. 🙂
Their Blog, Their Way. Cool. I’ll shoulder it. Hey, I don’t belong everywhere. It’s excellent when I find rocks in the river I can steer around rather than crash against. I find that there’s no reason for conflict in those situations… unless of course they come back with presumptuous statements. Cool, then someone wants to play. That’s simply a different conversational intensity level, though still simply conversation. I will then simply thank them for their presumptuous comment. Don’t expect it, just sayin’.
Nothing bad about not spending energy in places if you are moderated out. Again, on me, not them. They made their decisions via an unspoken though certain chilling gestures. I say SaWEET. Deadhead the pansies. Good stuff. Thank you, you two. I’m glad to have more energy to spend on the wonderful people below.
So, onto the wild beyond around the rocks in the wonderful rapids of the excellent blogs below. And, this week, WOOT WOOT, I’m treating the music section differently. You’ll see when you get there. Enjoy the Serendipity Itineraries you choose to venture to from the
Serendipity Itinerary Sites
Laleh Chini ~ A Voice From Iran. Check and inspect your expectations at the door. The storytelling, short stories, fables, and folk tales will… well, you’ll see. I just received her book last week and am looking forward to posting a review in the near future. I’m still adjusting to being this busy again, and I’m not going to rush out a review of Laleh’s wonderful work. I’m currently immersed in reading Climbing Over Grit, and without spoilers I can indefatigably express… YES!!!! Review coming soon. SO looking forward to dialing into those words.
Karen Sealey ~ The Pure & Blessed Tarot. ~ Riding the cusp between imagination and reality. The Discarded Oracle is coming to life! And, other ramblings and musings with no pulled punches, and lots of exquisite surprises along the way. THIS is a site to watch. No pressure, Karen.
Bonnie Hubly ~ Watercolors on Pinterest. Full. Robust. Full of feeling and robustly fluid fluency and flow. Majestic. Organic placements, artful scenes. Gorgeous watercolors.
Trini Lind ~ Paths of the Spirit. Create a path of Light with your Life. Wonderful perspective. Deceptively simple drawings that I find magically evocative. No one trick pony here.
Ian Bryant ~ Tarot Sushi. A place for all things Tarot and More! Excellent and clear and depthful writing voice with full-on proetic substance. Creative writing steeped in poetry, nourishing soul food for imagination and creative expression. And, I’m honored Ian is using my Tarot in the Land of Mystereum deck and 192-page companion book as a creative writing prompter.
cocinaitaly ~ Elganspo, comida italiana. Hungry? Hungry for edible beauty, aesthetic eats? Exquisite is a word. Edibly exquisite is two words. Grab a friend, and go experience this. What will your words be afterwards?
Benebell Wen ~ author + reader. Such a wonderful discipline of the ritual in Benebelle’s actioanable and exploratory process of deck creation of her 3rd edition of SKT. Check out Benebelle’s site. She is an engaged and informed artist fully immersed Actively in The Work and also in the not-knowing, and building value when she emerges her creations.
Robert Ruiz ~ Robert Ruiz Art. Robert Ruiz is an artist from Brownsville, TX, who is also a Master of Fine Art Candidate at the University of Texas at Rio Grande Valley with Bachelors of Fine Art, concentration in Drawing and New Media, from the University of Texas at San Antonio. He is also currently the Art Director at the Carlotta Petrina Museum and Artist liaison for the City of Brownsville Mural Program. Check out his work.
Banter Republic ~ Gottfried. It’s just banter. Banter, comedy, humor, lifestyle, Living. He might even ask you if a period can be italicized. Be entertained and engaged. No hidden Oz behind the curtain here.
Theresa, Soul Gatherings ~ Spiritual Moments in the Human Experience. Wonderful quotes and perspective here. A great daily.
Gabriela M. ~ Short Prose Fiction. Author of the Year (2019) at Spillword Press NYC. You can swim in these words. Take a dip.
Keith’s SecondVoice ~ African Poetry. I found Keith’s work last week. He liked a comment I made on another’s blog, don’t remember which as I clicked right through to his site. Wonderfully powerful, muscular language full of grit and flow and resonance and well-played metaphor that is apt and expressive and clear.
Carsten Wieland ~ Brushpark Watercolors ~ Aquarelle und Zeichnungen von Carsten Wieland. Power in color and fluid forms here. Please visit this wonderfully powerful feast for the eyes and process expressed with watercolors.
Roadtirement – Traveling and retired. This couple and their experiences and travels and family… just make me smile. Real and robust for being themselves. Plus, they’re gardeners. What ever could go wrong? Great sense of humor and wonderful outlook on life. Woo Hoo shout-out to the Roadtirement Etsy shop! Check it out.
Tutu’s edible logic ~ Food makes sense. Exquisite and intelligent and nourishing and informative.
Wander the Lines ~ Step into my reading life. Looking for a new book to read? Stop in here for a treat and a great perspective.
Delusional Bubble ~ Life is a bubble, Make it as delusional as possible. Travel the world. I feel Rick Steves is cool, and he’s also not the only game in town.
Joanne Sprott ~ Cosmic Whispers. Let’s Walk the Spiral Path Together. Poetry, depthful thought, and generally all things Joanne = things that matter and have substance and are important and/or are simply interesting.
Learn Tarot: Naima Healer ~ Self-Healing through the Present Moment. Wonderful work with a just as wonderful Hoo Doo deck. Naima has just started out blogging, and I firmly feel she started out on just the right foot. Sensitive, sensible with wit and wisdom not disconnected from lineage. She may have just started blogging, though she’s no novice Reader.
Bonnie Cehovet ~ Flash Fiction. Author. Tarot. Consummate Reviewer. Want a solid story? Bonnie’ll get your there. Bonnie has a way about only working with things she resonates with. She doesn’t do negative reviews, understands that that is a waste of her blessings and value. I beyond resonate with and respect that. What’s the point of non-things? CHeck out good things here.
Croque-Melpomene ~ Author of Within Paravent Walls. Pentalingual Idealist. Writer of psycho-corporeal Poetry. Creator of Croque-Melpomene & Les Femmes de la Décadence. Chthonic Numinosity, depth with no fear of addressing behemoth-level emotional topics through her poetry and evolved wonderment and continual curiosity. She runs deep, and takes the proper gear to do so… herself. I see a chthonic numinosity in her poetry that is akin to night and day stained glass. Well worth the visit. Powerful. Intense. Heartfelt. I advise to bring tissues for all the right reasons.
Saania2086 ~ Philosophy is all about being curious, asking basic questions. And it can be fun! If P, then Q. If you want good sense, then go here to see what dynamic mind dish is being served up today.
Charlescearl’s Weblog ~ Musings on fascinating things. Important and fascinating things well said. Charles not only thinks things through, he lives them through. You can feel it in his writing. Don’t go for the writing. Go for experience you will remember. Indelible is a word, and a good one with Charles’ weblog.
Jane Lurie Photography ~ powerful, evocative freeze-frames of architectural images that are definitely not secretly active. These images live out loud! They are refined. And they are as natural as they are refined, like an exquisitely cut emerald or sapphire or ruby kind of refined. There’s nothing hidden in the rough here. These beauties have some pipes in their visual voice.
Timothy Price ~ Off Center & Not Even. Is variety the spice of life? Go here and see! The photography is magnificent.
Mary K. Greer’s Tarot Blog ~ Tarot helps you meet whatever comes in the best possible way. Mary matters. Professionally. As a person. As an author. Mary matters. Sweet and direct and courageous and inventive and FUN. Oh, she was a wicked cool sense of humor. Many deep wells feed Mary’s work. Warning: Immersion here may lead to ablution.
Enchanted Seashells by Princess Rosebud ~ Beguiling pearls of wit, wisdom, and whimsy-with attitude. I’m not going to add more words to that. If that doesn’t grab you… A Princess is simply a Queen not yet sitting..
Dr. Eric Perry ~ Psychology to Motivate | Inspire | Uplift. Wonderfully full and relevant and engaged Psychology articles with clarity of voice. I full-on dig when things are as robust as they are clear, especially when directly dealing with intensities. This site, is certainly that.
Holly Troy ~ Cosmic Holly. Perennial Gemini in bloom. Naturalized. Excellent garden with music, too! Creative voice in multiple formats. Tarot. Astrology. Music. Writing. Life. Is she a Polymath, having multiple areas of expertise? Go see.
The Dihedral ~ More than just climbing. A lot more. And, climbing is a lot in itself. Read a new route today at The Dihedral. Dammit! No, not wormsign. Worse. The covert Covid-19 struck again. Visit The Dihedral for a seriously wicked and wonderfully solid attitude of Not Wasting Trouble.
Cristian Mihai ~ Professional Blogger. Sense & Sensibility meets the info age? He’s not afraid to say it, whatever he says. No walking on eggshells here, well, unless he starts making compost for the garden. Excellent tips for bloggers and thinkers and feelers.
Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. My words for Susi’s writing go something like this. You talk a good game, Dood, but can you (Susi) Bocks? Concise might even be too long a word. The consistency of depth here is… well, I have a deep respect for how much she does with so little and its never sparse. Muscular and powerful language. I’d call her the Bruce Lee of words.
The Alchemist’s Studio ~ Raku, vessels, Alchemy in action. Pottery with heart and soul PLUS some PUNitive humor to boot. Don’t miss the Hens! Another place of great perspective.
Enjoy the DNA of our Solar System as it moves along its 230-million year orbit around our Milky Way galaxy. Credit to A.T. Mann for sending me this years back when he was a guest on my Inner State Highways internet TV show. Hmmm, I miss doing that. Maybe I should revisit doing a new show… Whatever will it be titled?
This is such a cool creation about the larger creation we live our own orbits within.
Helix and DNA strands anyone? There’s such a wonderful Who let the dogs out? quality to this gif. One of my personal faves.
& This Week’s SI Music & Video
This week… This week I am going to do the Music Section differently. Unless I want Silence, music is always on. And, living in the city in Philadelphia rather than on 50 acres outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico 5 years ago before here… music is also typically on ti filter out the noise pollution of the car alarms and bs city trash noise.
And, I HAVE DISCOVERED THE SHUFFLE feature on my Sonos sound system When I upgraded several weeks ago. WOW! YES! And, that’s what’s driving how this week’s Music Section is different. I set it up this week more as an extended Bibliography of the awesome-sauce that has been permeating the liquid of the spaces in my home. I’m getting to know my SOnos better, and this week, I think it must have recently broken up with Alexa or something. I like all the music, and just wrote it down at times this week while it was playing, though there is kinda a baby baby take me back mix tape vibe going on. Lol. I put a box of tissues near it so it can keep cranking out the tunes.
I have ONE video from my favorite soundtrack of all time, Peter Gabriels’s Last Temptation of Christ. Such thickly lush and viscous mood music. Jut fills the room with just what I need. Nothing religious or secular about it. It simply expresses, in spades and beautiful forgetfulness, an immersion in the moment in the power of Peter Gabriel’s clarity of vision in voice. I remember all the controversy in Wichita Falls, Texas when it came out. People picketing the theatres, You’re all going to Hell, and all that mumbo jumbo with no gumbo. I remember afterwards feeling it was visually intense, though I was responding more to the soundtrack than the film.
I had gone to a matinee in the afternoon, and I remember walking out of the theater right afterwards and making a bee-line to the record store. None on the shelves, labeled, though empty. I went to the counter to order it, and, Oh, we have them. Just with all that Bible Belt Baptist bullshit going on out there, I’d rather they be allowed to go to church instead of the popo taking them to jail because they either shoplifted it to listen in secret or to destroy them. Either way there I lose. How many do you want? Big smile over here on this side of the counter. What a great question. Hadn’t even though about more than 1. Now that you mention it, I’ll stick to theme. 3, please. The soundtrack opens up with The Feeling Begins, and oh what a feeling this soundtrack will fill your spaces with wherever you are. It resonates with me deeply much like one of my fave quotes from David Bowie:
Heaven and Religion are for people who do not want to go to Hell. Spirituality is for those of us who have already been there.~ David Bowie
So, Cherry Pick
So, cherry pick my Sonos Shuffle Library from this week listed below While my Sonos continues its healing journey. ;). I think there is a download playlist feature if I can find it. Next week, it just might be more… uh hem… complete. Like this isn’t plenty, though. I hope you find some soundtrack music below for your SI above. Or, of course bring your own. You might already be packin’. My Sonos has been filling the spaces with musical SI all week long. My musical tastes run from heavy metal to heavy meaning, so shuffle travels far and expansively wide… and more than oftentimes Is seamless segue synchromeshed engine voice in the ears informing the motions of speed-shifting high up in the tach with no clutch and ALL engagement. I just love me some torque.
May you fill your spaces with the good stuff Your way. Plenty to choose from this week. Maybe I’ll introduce him to Siri. Well, maybe not. Then, I’d never get any sleep. They might tell me to leave as they already HAVE a room.
