SI: 7/10 Serendipity Itinerary

Behind every dark cloud the sun indelibly shines. Don’t wait for it. Grab your umbrella, or better, run out to embrace the rain. Be bigger than your circumstances. It tends to lift your head and heart up together rather than to be the tallest blade of the grass that is the 1st to get cut. You of course can duck in those cases.

Perspective. Does the way we react or respond provide our perspective most times? My grandfather used to say, Well, if you’re perplexed, hold your mouth differently for a new perspective. How do you hold your mouth? Such a cool and simple way of expressing volumes. Just a thought placed on the stacked stone cairn of this week’s SI trailhead. May your week be as magical as you make it. May the ground you walk on be as inspirational as the stars in your sky.

Your July 10th, 2020 SI Under a Pisces Moon Moves into Void of Course at 11:49p EST to Emerge in Aries at 1:06a Through the Weekend

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.

This Week

7/10/2020 is a #3 Day, so

59 seconds for your week to… Do some pruning to reveal your most primary structure. Shed a skin or two in a molt like chaff from wheat in the wind. Don’t look back. The snake its skin shedded, the snake its skin not missed… for, look at all the freshened pretty colors. Swim. Wash off unnecessary nuisances under the Pisces Moon tonight when it goes Void of Course at 11;49p EST. Clean yourself up during the Void. Stuff dropped there is often gone as if it never was, and then move forward refreshed from the dropped and forgotten drag weight with positive groups as the Moon enters Aries at 1:06a. Heck, or, just dead-head your pansies.

Here we go!

Serendipity Itinerary for July 10th

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 this week and am looking forward to posting a review in the near future.

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?

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.

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.

Bonnie Hubly ~ Watercolors on Pinterest. Full. Robust. Full of feeling and robustly fluid fluency and flow. Majestic. Organic placements, artful scenes. Gorgeous watercolors.

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.

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.

RoadtirementTraveling 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Before We Get to the Music, this gem of a giff re-surfaced week before last when spelunking in the bottomless pit otherwise known as my email. It’s a real keeper.

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. Such a cool creation about the larger creation we live our orbits within.

Helix and DNA strands anyone?

SI: 7/2 Serendipity Itinerary

Posting Your Serendipity Itinerary a bit early this week due to the Holiday Weekend on this side of those two Ponds… Plus, looks like something special arriving here on July 4th! Check back and see…

Behind every dark cloud the sun indelibly shines. Don’t wait for it. Grab your umbrella, or better, run out to embrace the rain. Be bigger than your circumstances. It tends to lift your head and heart up together not to be the tallest blade of the grass that is the 1st to get cut… Perspective. It provides you YOUR own perspective… most likely. Just a thought placed on the stacked stone cairn of this week’s SI. May your week be s magical as you make it. May the ground you walk on be as inspirational as the stars in your sky.

Your July 4th, 2020 SI Under a Capricorn Moon

This Week I Put on My Psychic Scuba Gear and Dove over the Liminal Horizon Into Memory Land. Fun Stuff…

And, WHAT a SaWEET Week in Music!

Do you often feel you know before you know? Do you trust that if you do, and/or take your feeling-sense knowing as wise Counsel for your discernment to take under advisement from there? I never recommend being a Yes-Person to psychic contents any more than a Master Gardener watering the garden. Some things come that flow with beauty, others drip in, and others are to crash against the Inner Sea Wall with an indefatigable and unsaid ‘No’ with no words and simply shaking one’s head side to side with eyes-wide-eyebrows-raised in The Look for it to subside and Resubmit As Noted later.

There have been studies that indicate decisions have often mostly likely been presented 10 seconds prior to you “making” them as they surfed over the liminal into consciousness. It’s cool work in neurology and psychology, and I still keep my eyebrows up. That stuff’s a case by case basis, as sometimes Parts come screaming in HOT… Thanks for coming. Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine. So, before I dispense prioritizing your message… what IS your message? We can take it from there.

59 seconds to… May the ground you walk on and the steps you take be as inspirational as the stars in your sky…

Here we are. Here we go!

Serendipity Itinerary for July 4th

RoadtirementTraveling 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? Seriously, do you want genuine and authentic where those two words can meaningfully never need to come up, as when natural there’s certainly no need? Like Nature? Yep. Me, too. Travel here to travel with them. That they are here in the world makes the world a better place. This week they added new items in their Etsy shop. Hmmm… be back in a sec. Uh oh! Do you like going junkin’? DAYum. How ‘bout somewhere where they’ve cleaned the filter and pulled out the treasures for you already? I get it. Love junkin’, finding treasures, though their shop struck a different chord with me this week in that regard. What about immersing in serendipity and only beauty at the same time? What about NO junk, no lesser of two evils, and simply what about neither is less and having to choose between beauty after beauty after… Woo Hoo shout-out to the Roadtirement Etsy shop! Check it out.

Theresa, Soul Gatherings ~ Spiritual Moments in the Human Experience

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.

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.

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.

Christina Schmidt, MA ~ Sassy Scorpion Tarot. Yes, the name says it all, and there’s always still more as well. And, it’s all true. Intense. On, not off. Sassy, Scorpionic depths to immerse yourself like being in a Tarot hot spring. Go for the spring, stay for the spring in your step after. Also, Christina has Armed With Coffee. Variety is the spice of life? There’s definitely some spice and depth here with consistency and structure that is wonderfully not limited by either. I suggest to experience her reading for Cancer this week.

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.

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.

Wyrd Smythe ~ Logos con carne. Another voice in the interweb wilderness. Thoughtful and expansive and far enough in his experiential application he also has the wicked cool ability to dial in to a sense of humor about it. Sometimes, the humor is separate. No reason to put strips or regs on his alchemy, though. Take a peek… or a portal.

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.

Bonnie Hubly ~ Watercolors on Pinterest. Full. Robust. Full of feeling and robustly fluid fluency and flow. Majestic. Organic placements, artful scenes. Gorgeous watercolors.

Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. My words for Susi’s writing go something like this. You talk a good game, Dood, but can you box? Yes, Susi Bocks. Concision has never had so much consistent depth.

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!

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.

Before We Get to the Music, This Gem Re-Surfaced from the Library of Alexandria called my Emails. This week I came upon the Solomon’s Mines of my own DRAFT projects parked. LOL. What a wonderful smile and full-boat laughter I got with, Well then, I’ve got some work to do.

Enjoy the DNA of our Solar System as it moves along its 230 million year orbit around our Milky Way galaxy.

Shifting focus and re-directing scale and side-stepping the clutch double-clutching mid-revving to 6-grand in 5th to … click in the gear-gate (MY Personal Stargate) click click Boom, 6th at 6-grand slid foot touches the floor and BAM I Am One With Recaro Now… YES!

Helix and DNA strands anyone?

Solar System & DNA

& This Week’s SI Music

This sticks around for another week… at least. LOVE the lyrics… and the vocals and drum work, and the guitar meandering through full frontal though like connective tissue to everything else… Troy rocks it On the drums with smooth intensity. The Tardigrade. How can YOU ake your own laws… remember, if your a cog… Cool. That means you function fluidly and consistently under high heat and pressure without fail… so the gears don’t slip and full-on engagement occurs. What intense places do you sidestep the clutch at 6k without dropping the tranny. Don’t worry if you blow the turbo bypass valve. That just means you’re driving it like it was meant to… over the line into the spec of YOU in Expansive Mode. No button for that. Or, is there?

Seriously, keep yourself safe, though the laughing smile on your mechanic’s face when you get an the oil change and they hook up the car chip to the… is priceless when they step back in to hand you the keys

and, (just smiling and shoulders bobbing silently chuckling like they found Nirvana and aren’t keeping any part of it secret) Dood. ok. Thank you. Just (looking around, no one other than us). Fucking thank you. You are SO driving that car like it was meant to be driven. I ticked some gigs I can’t tell you about… (wadding up my bill and tossing it in the trash). Let me know if this week is more enjoyable than last. I have to take that can out now so I’m here when you come back. 😉

Yes. Yes, it was. Talk about some foot. Thanks, Man!

Reminds me of…

Planet Sandwich Studio version of Tardigrade

Planet Sandwich’s TardiGrade performed live at the Sedona Mountain Bike Festival

Bassnectar ~ Nothing Has Beeb Broken

I reached back to find one in particular I hadn’t heard in a while… got sidetracked when the phone rang… email… oh, edit this and that and… email… editing.. email… oh, ok, COOL, I’ll update my Sonos app. Way cool! The Shufle button floated to the top. Clicked. LOL, all my all over the place like an ant moving a mountain a grain of sand at a time untiringly… what I was originally going to go look for from years back? … Perfect. On shuffle, it came on 1st. Maybe Siri and Shuffle have something going on… some wickedly cool strange sounds come from the Kitchen when I deposit my phone in a drawer to lose the eYoke.

OvniMoon Via Axis ~ Galactic Mantra

DO you have Sonos Play One or Sonos Bar? A Marshall stack? Or, neighbors on vacation? Or, just invite them over sop they can’t complain, or they can be sent away of they do.

I suggest… Turn it UP!

Blue October ~ She’s My Ride Home

Seether ~ Careless Whisper cover

Last Weekend & This Week Were One for the Record Books Leading up … to… Wonderfully Intense… Calm? Hmmm… in places… Still intense even there.

Keith’s SecondVoice ~ African Poetry. I found Keith’s work this 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.

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.

Christina Schmidt, MA ~ Sassy Scorpion Tarot. Yes, the name says it all, and there’s always still more as well. And, it’s all true. Intense. On, not off. Sassy, Scorpionic depths to immerse yourself like being in a Tarot hot spring. Go for the spring, stay for the spring in your step after. Also, Christina has Armed With Coffee. Variety is the spice of life? There’s definitely some spice and depth here with consistency and structure that is wonderfully not limited by either. I suggest to experience her reading for Cancer this week.

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.

RoadtirementTraveling 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? Seriously, do you want genuine and authentic where those two words can meaningfully never need to come up, as when natural there’s certainly no need? Like Nature? Yep. Me, too. Travel here to travel with them. That they are here in the world makes the world a better place.

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.

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.

Bonnie Hubly ~ Watercolors on Pinterest. Full. Robust. Full of feeling and robustly fluid fluency and flow. Majestic. Organic placements, artful scenes. Gorgeous watercolors.

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?

Karen Sealey ~ The Pure & Blessed Tarot. The Discarded Oracle is coming to life! And, other ramblings and musings with no pulled punches, and lots of exquisite surprises along the way.

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.

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.

Theresa, Soul Gatherings ~ Spiritual Moments in the Human Experience

Charlotte Heather ~ Soprano. Charlotte and her partner are doing weekly balcony concerts in the UK!

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. Polymath? Go see.

Timothy Price ~ Off Center & Not Even. Is variety the spice of life? Go here and 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.

Trini Lind ~ Paths of the Spirit. Create a path of Light with your Life

Cristian Mihai ~ Professional Blogger. Sense & Sensibility meets the info age? He’s not afraid to say it, say whatever he says. No walking on eggshells here, well, unless he starts making compost for the garden.

Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. My words for Susi’s writing go something like this. You talk a good game, Dood, but can you box? Yes, Susi Bocks. Concision has never had so much consistent depth.

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!

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.

Buckle up & Breathe

This Week Was One for the Record Books Leading up to This Weekend Which Is Just as Much So

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 to expand your experience. Heck, it’s also to build some epic spirals of healthy giving and receiving in community. I noticed that on the blogs I resonate with, I often also resonate with who they resonate with. So, to strike more resonant chords in this world along that same vein… Welcome to this week’s Serendipity Itinerary where…

I Share

I share the stacked stone cairn trailheads, links to others’ blogs, of paths I’ve experienced over the past week. There are people I follow, new people and places I’ve found, and sometimes something or someone featured in the roster just because a topic or person came to mind. Reasons are unreasonable here, just the way I like it. The Now comes from our whole life up to this point… and, to revise Ricky, Lucy, there’s no ‘splainin‘ to do. Enjoy this week’s experiential menu.

If You

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!

This Week

Please buckle up for music balance scored to sync up with this week’s character. This week chords were struck to resonate in many areas for me, and you’ll see what occurred over the coming weeks… maybe even one of them later today.

The

The Tarot Birth Cards for people and ideas born into the world today are:

How Cool is THAT?!

Those are my Tarot Birth Cards as well! Will be saWEET chords struck to resonate if one of my new gigs is re-born today. If not, then cool, this was.

This Week

I’ll add Some royalty as a visual orchestra in chorus with the Music Section.

Of Course

Of course Your Blog, Your Rules. Reasons are unreasonable. You are Sovereign in your life and on your blog, your way. So, let me know if you want to be presented differently, or not at all. You’ve most likely spent a wonderful amount of time on your content and presentation and marketing and messaging. I’ll be the last one to dial interference patterns into that. Let me know. Otherwise, I appreciate you in this mini-epic-spiral-arabesque-circular-branch of community on the Tree of the world. Thanks much for being here and visiting.

Ok

I’ll toot my own horn to start the band.

The Sun Card

46 seconds to You As Only You Can Be

As Above, So Below. How do you root? How do you reach? Born to see and having developed your clarity of vision in just your particular way…

How are you You as only you can be?

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now, put the foundations under them.

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.

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, and I firmly feel she started out on just the right foot. Sensitive, sensible with wit and wisdom not disconnected from lineage. Please welcome Naima to the community. It’s a pleasure to have her here. She may have just started on her blog path, though she’s no novice. It’s my impression that her whole life in its entirety up to now brought her to this point. She reminds me of white belts in the black belt class I taught years back who came in as THEMSELF and didn’t cow. I’d start them there to insure they were immersed in examples without bad habits from the start, and to make sure they didn’t ballast-drop their life up to that point so they’d come in with THEMSELF and progress FROM there rather than some feigned I have to start over perspective. Again, please visit her site to see what she’s about. In that regards her words will be better than mine. Here, you’re getting one perspective, mine, which is simply a description and implied invite. There, on her site you’ll have the perspective of directly engaging with her to see for yourself. Enjoy.

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? Those are for annoying know-it-alls. Check out Bonnie’s site for her way. She’s certainly got one that I resonate with.

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? Possibly. 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. It’s not that I see the light coming from the dark, or the shadows coloring the light. I see a chthonic numinosity in her words in her poetry that is akin to stained glass. Regardless of the color or light or dark of the panes (verses), the leading between each of them is interstice inclusive of Other. Stained glass in words. It’s been said that the stained glass in cathedrals was to express the voice of God/Divine in light. Hey, with my alchemist’s bents I might be a little biased about the leading. Oh wait. That’s not bias. That’s taste, and there’s no accounting for that. Well worth the visit.

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.

Bonnie Hubly ~ Watercolors on Pinterest. Full. Robust. Full of feeling and robustly fluid fluency and flow. Majestic. Organic placements, artful scenes. Gorgeous watercolors.

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?

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.

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.

Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. My words for Susi’s writing go something like this. You talk a good game, Dood, but can you box? Yes, Susi Bocks. Concision has never had so much consistent depth.

Karen Sealey ~ The Pure & Blessed Tarot. The Discarded Oracle is coming to life! And, other ramblings and musings with no pulled punches, and lots of exquisite surprises along the way.

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.

SUCH a Great Week in Music! Made all the better by…

my Sonos Play One speaker. It’s like having the support of a Marshall stack behind you that’s the size of a canteloupe. Such an amazing piece of wireless music tech. Deeply crystal clear robust sound quality. I love music, and I love quality. Both together? That sounds like a description of beauty. Yup, music is good. Great music is ambrosia. Like a coffee or beer or red wine that… Well, I can’t see light through it, so that’s a good start.

What A

What a smorgasbord(g) of a week in music. It felt like the wonderful feeling up running up and down the gears in my Audi TTS back in 2001. Tach-ing up kelping the clutch for some shifts to be seamless segues, side-stepping the clutch on others for wonderfully intentional catapult-launches … into the brakes riding rails into turns, rockets ON at apogee and I was one with the seat. En-Vig-Or-Ating. Fun stuff G-forces are.

Rather Than

Rather than the Dalai Lama Lama being his humorous self pranking at a burger joint asking them to make him one with everything, I’ll take being merged into a Recaro baseball leather stitching seat when side-stepping the clutch at 4,500 rpm. And, they’re off! Heck, the 12 Bose speakers in that tiny little cockpit…Splendor in clear and up-there Db levels is a solid start, too, and one to keep the juices flowing.

I Missed

I missed the exquisite experience of that car this week. Sold it back in late 2001. It just kind of wandered back into my mind Monday morning like it was high noon and it had some words for the Sheriff in town. I nodded to it and YES! You get no pushback from me on that. Count me in!

So

So, this week while working and doing other things, instead of missing my TTS, I didn’t waste trouble. I ran the Sonos up and down the gears to fill the spaces with that feeling. I hope you like the everywhere of scales of raising. Super high, super low, super intense, super calm. So, here’s your music supermarket for this week. Not many will groove with them all, though I hope you find a treasure or two.

Normally

Normally, I don’t play Top Bill or Top Gun on the music section. Though, this week… this week there wasn’t even a decision about it. I just started nodding Yes before the thought even presented — there are neurological studies about prescience being the ability to clearly access ideas and thoughts fully in that 10 seconds before they consciously present where they’ve already been there hidden on their way surfing the bleeding edge of that liminal horizon inside as they reify into consciousness — my words not those expressed in the linked article.

The brain makes decisions to serve up to our discretion and discernment before we even know it? Another story for another time, I’ll simply stack stones like a cairn at a trailhead by linking this sentence.

Back to the Music

This week

This week I suggest to bring your racing gloves and heart and wits and wisdom and tissues and yoga/meditation/tatami mat and comfy chair and dancing shoes if you prefer to listen to music while you’re moving around… yup, especially bring the tissues.

Here’s SI’s Week In Music. Beautiful kinds of links that don’t need to be fixed. Oh, before we start in to the music, I have to say a sociologically important observation occurred this week that I found intrinsically important to share to stop this flagrant and blatant abuse not setting children up for success:

I really think porn does a great disservice to our kids’ expectations of how things work in the real world. I mean, seriously! For example: it vastly and unreasonably exaggerates how quickly a plumber will actually get to your house after you call them. We really should be conscious about educating the kiddos so they are wise to the ways of the world doncha think? Teach them how to inspect their expectations so they can re-set as required to keep evolving without deflation. Agreed?

~ Public Service Message from ImaginAction overheard who knows where

Maybe This Is a Better Message for the Kiddos

So, onto it, on to Top Bill! Archie!

SI Top Bill ~ Archie Williams

Archie Williams~ Losing Everything.

Serendipity Itinerary 06132020

Serendipity Itinerary for 06132020

Reflections (c) 2009 Jordan Hoggard

Buckle up

Brahma Bull Shamanically on the Way

Serendipity Intineraries 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 to expand your experience. Heck, it’s also to build some epic spirals of healthy giving and receiving in community. I noticed that on the blogs I resonate with, I often also resonate with who they resonate with. So, to strike more resonant chords in this world along that same vein… Welcome to this week’s Serendipity Itinerary where…

I share the stacked stone cairn trailheads, links to others’ blogs, of paths I’ve experienced over the past week. There are people I follow, new people and places I’ve found, and sometimes something or someone featured in the roster just because a topic or person came to mind. Reasons are unreasonable here, just the way I like it. The Now comes from our whole life up to this point… and, to revise Ricky, Lucy, there’s no ‘splainin‘ to do. Enjoy this week’s experiential menu.

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!

This Week

First off, it was an intense week. Just turning the music down to take calls or to go into readings or meetings was actually an Admin thing this week, was an actual thing taking time. The more intense it gets for me most often translates directly into the volume level on the Sonos — sometimes… too bad the neighbors are home. It’s ok, though, when I can’t hear them knocking. 🙂 I wonder what this week was like for you?

So, please buckle up. May not be a wild ride, though it’s intended to reflect the rockin’ intensity of the week. Hopefully, I got the word and image and music balance right to tune into to attune the energies to balance and align and sync up with this week’s intensity. This week certainly deserves at least that. It felt like The Chariot upgraded to a bigger engine.

SI Will Be a Little Diff This Week

Playing and working in and dancing with the intensity of this past week, I’m going to engage something different this week. I’m going to utilize a Came to Mind Reading technique (non-related link, serendipity) with each person’s listing below. I’ll place 2 cards and/or images that came to mind for the feel of their blog and messaging — or, their Tarot Birth Cards if I know them.

The 1st card image is intended to be the Primary aspect of the feel. The 2nd card is intended to be an Accentuator to color the tenor of the 1st Primary card/image. Pardon any psychic dyslexia on my part if I reversed your feel, or general inaccuracy if I’m full-on just off base. OFLs — Opportunities For Learning.

What do you feel?

What do you feel about the cards that came to mind for your rockin’ blog?

Call the cards a Sun Primary card with an orbiting Moon card. Only the Blog Owner and you can discern if I missed the boat, and instead got a good swim in the water below.

Of Course

Of course it’s Your Life, Your Way. Your Blog, Your Rules. If you would rather I input your Tarot Birth Cards, I certainly will. Click for the Tarot Birth Card Calculator at The Tarot School in NYC, Ruth Ann & Wald Amberstone’s splended, online, Tarot home. Alternately, if you’d rather not be included here at all, certainly let me know in the comments. DO let me know. You won’t be callin yourself out to be excluded in the comments. Instead, you’ll be Sovereign and straight-up owning honesty YOUR way for your best sake. I’ll promptly take you off, as again, Your Blog, Your Rules. Reasons are unreasonable. You are Sovereign in your life and on your blog, your way. Let me know, and as soon as I can get to it, consider it done — will edit this one as well.

Respect is foundational. You’ve most likely spent a wonderful amount of time on your marketing and messaging. I’ll be the last one to dial interference patterns into the splendor of what you’ve built If your presence here feels like it does.

To Be

To be transparent, my Tarot Birth Cards are The Hanged Man~The Empress. Interestingly enough, according to Wald Amberstone, The Hanged Man is The Empress’ son. I not only buy that, it also resonates with the way I build back in and nourish my creative process like a Master Gardener, like in the Reflections image above.

Gardening Reciprocates

Gardening reciprocates, naturally. Great for all involved. My BITCh method creative process was gifted and is ingrained in my texture from my Mom, and is unfortunately the extent of my current gardening. Mamma’s boy?Pardon, while I contain my laughter. We’re now resonant peers. My apple didn’t fall far from the tree, though it’s a great apple. And, I gather she Is able to add some more choice words about how we are each our own. I’m nodding glad that my apple doesn’t have a worm. Nodding glad is mo’ betta than fighting mad. It’s just an apple. That in itself rocks!

To Dial In, I’ll Share This

So, to start off this week’s gig… hmmm what vid of mine will I share?… Cool, Ok, I’ll go with that thought: simple numbers Adding up much like Birth Cards are generated. It’s 06132020 = 6 + 1 + 3 + 2 + 2 = 14 = 1 + 4 = a 5 day. So, I’ll abduce a 5. Sometimes 5s present a problem card for people. I don’t feel there are any bad cards, though, and that’s robustly understandable that Nature of the 5 gets under some peoples’ skin. Depends on how you take it? Depends on how your perspective responds? WHat do you think about the 5s, or 5 in general?

Also, notice the use of abduce above rather than abduction. (Period not italicized, or is it?). No abduction here. Abduction is a bully level of petty controlling behavior based on being afraid rather than fear. There’s plenty of abduce-ing to be experienced here, plenty drawn out and to draw out.

What do you abduce?

How do you draw your creative ideas out?

Or, do they just arrive?

I See 5s as…

I see 5s not as chaos, but as a number of Nature. In fact, THE number of Nature. 9 is the Nin or 9th kanji of Ninjutsu mediation where the concept is Tao, and the color is White and you view through your thumbs-index fingers raised up as a digit-ized circle to focus the Moon in the night sky. Interestingly enough, if you count the segments along the path of your thumb and index finger, 7 each hand, that’s 14 = 1 + 4 = 5, so the 9 of the Nin kanji brings YOUR Nature to form the seamless segue segmented circle of YOU as you swim in the Moon.

3 is the number of the 1st group, the 1st self-supporting structure, and the impetus and/or onset of perceived beauty reified as an externalized gig. Call 3 Beauty-DNA. 7? Oh yeah. 7 is where the shit potentially hits the fan. At 7, you are far enough away from base camp origins in the process so to speak so as to not be able to safely turn back, though you also have not yet reached the false summit of the plateau of 8 where you can safely rest. 7s can rock you. Best to forget endurance and will with the 7s, the snake its skin shedded, the snake its skin not missed much like chaff falling off from wheat in the wind kinda thing and just keep on keepin’ on. You’re not off the mountain until you are. You’re not at a safe pause point until you are. Keep going. Breathe. Drink water if you have it. You’ll get there.

Nothing Ever

Nothing may ever be resolved with a 5. Though, with the perspective that 5 is THE number of Nature and the weather simply is what it is… there’s Justice and straight up owned honesty that, without even the concept of honesty or integrity anywhere. Nature doesn’t need that stuff as it doesn’t lie. Of course it doesn’t tell the truth, either. What is, simply is. What’s the weather like? What’s your Inner Weather like?

And, Nature is… uh hem… so natural, right?! In Nature the concept of facts is also ridiculously ludicrous — though, not to mean discernment and response aren’t warranted. I ask, with Nature, why would there even NEED to be resolution? Instead, there is dynamic experience that yes, has plenty of intereference patterns, though no more than all the earth, trees, flowers, animals and wind on a windy day. Each experience is what you make of it. Is it a crazy-making static-generating wind, or just a good clearing out to freshen the air? I feel 5 is weather incarnate. 5 is honest without fail and without intent, just like Nature. Nature doesn’t have emotions. Nature has weather. Whether you weather your Inner Weather or do something with it or about it, that’s of course your call. What do you feel about 5?

2 Questions

Are you your best Self when naturally aware of your internal weather?

Does that inform you how to be more wise in time in the moment? To continue to build rather than bring you to hit the inner beep beep beep of reverse gear to back up and apologize?

5 of Pentacles Mystereum Tarot Moment

Some people say

Don’t toot your own horn. Seriously?!, shaking my head. Guess they’ve never been on stage or in a band or been on point with their life on the line? Maybe that’s wonderful for them, though that’s as close to alien to me as I know. Again, though, excellent for them as they certainly have a different mode of being and experience to live out. SaWEET! All similar, each unique. Everyone is different, like everyone else.

It’s been an intense week,

and I see that now in how

I’m handling this post. GEEZUS, get on with it, Dood. You just FINALLY got to the beginning! 🙂

so… without further adieu…

Don’t toot your own horn?

DAYum, somebody’s gotta start the band.

Uh 1 a 2 a 1 2 3…

Serendipity Itinerary for June 13th

Wander the Lines ~ Step into my reading life. Looking for a new book to read? Stop in here for a treat.

RoadtirementTraveling 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? Seriously, do you want genuine and authentic where those two words can meaningfully come up, though somewhere there’s no need? Like Nature? Yep, me, too. Travel here to travel with them. That they are here makes the world a better place.

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.

Bonnie Cehovet ~ Flash Fiction. Author. Tarot. Consummate Reviewer. Want a solid story? Bonnie’ll get your there.

Croque-Melpomene ~ Author of Within Paravent Walls. Pentalingual Idealist. Writer of psycho-corporeal Poetry. Creator of Croque-Melpomene & Les Femmes de la Décadence.

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.

Bonnie Hubly ~ Watercolors on Pinterest. Full. Robust. Full of feeling and Robustly fluid fluency and flow. Majestic. Gorgeous watercolors. Hi Mom! She loved 1st bill last week, though suggested that things that stay in one spot stagnate, and to keep the placement organic, more artful. Love it, Mom. Love, Jordan

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?

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.

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.

Theresa, Soul Gatherings ~ Spiritual Moments in the Human Experience

Charlotte Heather ~ Soprano. Charlotte and her partner are doing weekly balcony concerts in the UK!

Enchanted Seashells by Princess Rosebud ~ Beguiling pearls of wit, wisdom, and whimsy-with attitude. I’m not going to add ore words to that. If that doesn’t grab you… Note: some people make trite and puerile attributions to Princess. Inspect your expectations? Remember, a Princess is simply a Queen not yet sitting. You might find her in the garden with the succulents. Sometimes rolls that way… intensely.

Christina Schmidt, MA ~ Sassy Scorpion Tarot. Yes, the name says it all. And, it’s all true. Intense. On, not off. Sassy, Scorpionic depths to immerse yourself like in a Tarot hot spring. Go for the spring, stay for the spring in your step after. Also, Christina has Armed With Coffee. Variety is the spice of life? There’s definitely some spice here with consistency and structure, and not limited by either.

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. Polymath? Go see.

Timothy Price ~ Off Center & Not Even. Is variety the spice of life? Go here and 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.

Trini Lind ~ Paths of the Spirit. Create a path of Light with your Life

Charlescearl’s Weblog ~ Musings on fascinating things. Important and fascinating things well said.

Cristian Mihai ~ Professional Blogger. Sense & Sensibility meets the info age? He’s not afraid to say it, say whatever he says. No walking on eggshells here, well, unless he starts making compost for the garden.

Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. My words for Susi’s writing go something like this. You talk a good game, Dood, but can you box? Yes, Susi Bocks. Concision has never had so much consistent depth.

Karen Sealey ~ The Pure & Blessed Tarot. The Discarded Oracle is coming to life! And, other ramblings and musings with no pulled punches, and lots of exquisite surprises along the way.

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!

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.

So, Music This Week?!!

Disturbed. The Sound of Silence

Alejandro Aranda. Audition? More like Debs for Doods. Oh Yah!

Phantogram. When I’m Small

Where’s Reznor Now? — no, not the ceiling heater unit

Q: Not what you expect from Trent? A:Artist;’s Art. Experience…

Nine Inch Nails. Letting Go While Holding On

Different than what you expect from Trent? It’s not Head Like A Hole, though just as good… It’s Trent. Need I say more? Different than you’d expect? Why? It’s Trent! He’s an artiste! Follow his process, don’t expect to stay comfortable. 🙂

NUN WITH A MOTHERF* & *ING GUN

Meg Myers ~ Desire. NSFW, full-on YES!

And, just because (Some Metric next week?)

Silversun Pickups: Circadian Rhythm

Judas Priest. Painkiller

So, Disturbed’s cover of The Sound of Silence CERTAINLY played the BUILD TO A CRESCENDO and resonated into its finale and ROCKED IT, though… …. …. And, the award for best BUILD in a song this week goes to…

Bullet For My Valentine ~ Your Betrayal

Grog say! ::: JORDAN, a Video from 2004?!! Did they even have internet in our caves back then?? How did they shoot the video? Hmmmm. Grog See. Hmmmm. Still no know how still relevant. Hmmm. Is!. Wise AND Grog SAY Hilarious. Grog keep from last week. No questions! Grog say COOL.. Grog go now hunt for dinner! Grog say, can I borrow your phone to call for delivery?

😉

DAYUM. Grog’s getting it!

Underwear Goes Inside the Pants

Texas-Born Waking Up

Beware: Poignant video below, magnanimous splendor of a system.

The Texas Boy vigilante in Me is waking back up. Am I becoming a Prison Abolitionist? Thank you for the name for it, Charles C Earl!

That part of me waking back up from a 17-year Cicada Sleep, I see something in our culture. What is it I see? I see people using shaming behavior systemically under the petty guise of education of what’s right right and (sic) moral.

Dafuq? Lambasting someone for mistakes does not make them work harder to do better to not make them. It drives them to hide their mistakes. How the hell is someone going to be Sovereign with themselves when they have been taught to pay their dues before themself instead of with their work, and have it implied to be slippery-stealthy with their Self even to themselves? Mistakes? Nope, there aren’t any. It’s about experience and OFLs — Opportunities For Learning. Can you powerfully witness someone this week with no words? Just let them go on until they are finished to really feel what they are saying? Just a question if you’d like to give it a run. I’d be curious to see what happens. Disconnection? Connection? Deepening in a more simple and natural and intensely natural way?

I reject the bullshit pause behind the curtains of moral and right puritanical and guilt-based statements. There are not fetishes. There is simply no accounting for taste, and how anyone else and oneself included plays out their life as resolved now. Your whole life brought you right here to now. I’m honored your whole life brought you to this point in my blog. 😉

Heck, isn’t guilt just an upper octave (read in: bottom-feeder, low grade rob-power-from teachers kind of people) form of digested shame that people allow themselves to be influenced by in the 1st place?

Our teachers don’t need to be yoked by having to buy their own supplies. Free them up such the contrary-to-popular-belief-God’s-last-name-isn’t-dammit educational system listens to the teacher rather than the other way around. Similar in medicine versus/with insurance companies? Similar in lots of areas in … pervasive is a word. Enough is enough. This video brought cascades of ablution tingLes and tears when I 1st saw it. Still does as well now, though it is now simply a gardener watering my constitution and resolve. May it resonate and influence you in ways that are important to you as well.

Step Into the Circle

Pheww!! What a great week! Great week to get some amped up and vigorous rockin’ ‘tude In the mix. Love this community I’m discovering and I’m lovin’ it just doin’ it! Love it… 5 words for 2 copyright violations in those last 5 words. Good poets borrow. Great poets steal ~ Jordan Hoggard. Ok, not really. ~ T.S. Eliot. 🙂

What meaningful thing can you abduce, draw out of yourself, this week? Not abduction. Abduce. Be kind to yourself. Things inside might just start to surprise you even more.

Have a Wonderful Week!

Thank You Tuesday Tour

052620

Enjoy the ride. Serendipity Itinerary Menu for May 26th, 2020… posted a little early in the US as my friends in OZ across the Pacific Pond are 16 hours in the future. They most likely knew 16 hours ago I’d be doing this right now.

Thank You Tuesday Tours are about sharing my weekly blog field trips, my eExperiences, so that maybe you find some new people who you resonate with, enjoy and/or follow and/or simply experience. Explore the Serendipity Itineraries Below where I share the trailhead, stacked stone cairns of paths I’ve experienced over the past week from people I follow, new people and places I’ve found, and just because they came to mind and I put them in the menu.

Reflections (c) 2009 Jordan Hoggard

There will never be a popularity contest here, nor will I list every place I’ve been, as you might be asleep by the end. I’ll keep it to 3 or 9 or 12 or… whatever number serendipity gigs with each week.

I feel life’s about experience and building value with what you magnetize to and orbit with, create and make real, and as well those who do the same for and with you. The meaning of life? Well, I’ll hop on Joseph Campbell’s boat with that one, though not the one where I have to pay the Ferry Man.

People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. … I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances with our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive. ~ Joseph Campbell

Variety may be the spice of life, and/or both/and I prefer to keep things fresh. May these Serendipity Itineraries provide gas for your creative and community fuel tanks. The rapture of being alive. Hell Yeah!

Heck, in regards my automobile, my gas mileage these days is stunning, I’m getting like 3 weeks to the gallon! I can put that time and savings into this weekly series to give back and have some fun while doing it. Enjoy the serendipity. And, as always on my blog, it’s about community, not competition.

If you have a blog or video or similar that you’ve produced that supports any comment you make here, you have my express permission to link to it in your comment. Please do. I only ask that you be thoughtful and healthy and self-serving and self-centered by pasting a link in your comment to one of your fave blogs that you’ve written. Yes, very definitely engage in some gratuitous self promotion. Gratuity? Yup, tip yourself by tipping your hat. Gift people places to go!

Self-centered is ego, and bad? Nah, not here. It simply shows you have a center, and the center needn’t necessarily be in the middle, either, or hog the limelight. Your center direction in a link will help people dive right in to immerse in your intent and content like a non-stop flight to a heartbeat and pulse of who and what you are rather than only being as good as your last post. Or, of course, link your last post and let serendipity take the path from there.

By all-means, though, self promote in your comment. I do ask that you actually comment. I’m not a clearinghouse website farm here. It’s rare, though some comments have been known to mysteriously go MIA like Earl from the Dixie Chicks. 🙂

Some people say, Don’t toot your own horn. Yup, that’s most likely fine from that person’s intent or perspective, though a but of a NyQuil talking head? Though, in regards to that statement here, and in general, I have s simple question. What would. Front man or woman say? By all means, toot your own horn. Somebody’s gotta start the band, right?!! Uh 1 a 2 a 1 2 3…

Jane Lurie Photography ~ powerful, evocative freeze-frames of architectural images that are definitely not secretly active. These images live out loud! They are as natural as they are refined, like an exquisitely cut emerald or sapphire or ruby refined. There’s nothing hidden in the rough here.

Christina Schmidt, MA ~ ArmedWith Coffee. Take the bait. She’ll magnetize you right in. Plus, there’s coffee, total vaccination to immunize you from boredom. Fortunately, I’m allergic to boredom, and in no way allergic to her blog. 1 of 2.

Christina Schmidt, MA ~ Sassy Scorpion Tarot. Yes, the name says it all. And, it’s all true. Intense. On, not off. Sassy, depthful, Scorpionic depths where you can immerse yourself like in a Tarot hot spring. Go for the spring, stay for the spring in your step after.

Holly Troy ~ Cosmic Holly. Perennial Gemini in bloom. Naturalized. Excellent garden with music, too!

Timothy Price ~ Off Center & Not Even. Is variety the spice of life? Go here and see!

Cristian Mihai ~ Professional Blogger. Sense & Sensibility meets the info age? He’s not afraid to say it, say whatever he says. No walking on eggshells here, well, unless he starts making compost for the garden.

Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. You talk a good game, but can you box? Yes, Susi Bocks. Concision has never had so much consistent depth.

Karen Sealey ~ The Pure & Blessed Tarot. The Discarded Oracle is coming to life! And, other ramblings and musings with no pulled punches, and lots of exquisite surprises along the way.

Bonnie Hubly ~ Watercolors on Pinterest. Full. Robust. Full of feeling and fluid fluency and flow. Majestic. Hi Mom!

The Dihedral ~ Climbing and humor and fascination and life. Type or lead-climbing, they set their holds right.

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!

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.

Remember to Dead-head the Pansies … ya know… like Spring Cleaning… once a year whether it needs it or not… oh wait, that already happened

Have a Rockin’ Week Everybody!

Blog By Comment

A Theme in the Air

Tonight, moving through blogs I’ve subscribed to, I noticed a theme of my comments. Not just because of my tenor, and that the comments were consistent because they were mine. There felt to be a response theme flowing in the air. I felt it would be cool if they all were in one space, so here they are in one space as Blog By Comment. Let’s see if they stick out like they are out of context when I only post my comment portion of it, or If they compose a thought or an idea… or further, a theme.

Serendipitous Blog Field Trip Itinerary

It’s not meant to be a popularity contest. Some blogs move me, and I don’t comment for one reason or another. And, some blogs move me to comment and dive into the post. So in the vein of the thematic gig above, and feeling it would be cool to have the larger conversation with all of them in the same space, I’ll link the blogs here as well after my comment on them.

Maybe you’ll find someone new to resonate with, something or someone new that interests you, and/or provide a serendipitous blog field trip itinerary further beyond these. Let’s see what happens. It may be a crack idea. Then, as Mark Twain expressed, New ideas are always crack ideas, until they catch on. Not catching on is not a concern of mine. At all.

While I’m at it, I’ll put a Tarot card or other image between each one. They may not provide seamless segues, though at least they’ll provide points of interest or lookouts along the way. If you like ‘em, pull over and experience them for a while. If not, just keep on keepin’ on drivin’.

Itinerary

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Why move to A different room? Yup, I get it. One night not grow as much when they are in a pond that reveres them. Though, is talent is innate? Is ability simply the talents that you have developed?

How can you actionably use your, either talent or abilities developed from them, rather than just talking about it? Hey, ya talk a good game. But Can. You. Box>?

Is it time to sidestep the clutch at 4,500 rpm with your abilities, and go for it?

I’m 52. That continual fluid fluency of shift never stops in the creative process. One’s life is certainly not over at 20 or 30 or 40 or… You don’t have to reach your potential before x y or z age. We do it when we do. You reach your potential when you do. And, I gather we each go further from there!

Your response to it? Well, that’s yours. You can bitch about it, and sometimes that’s important, though when you do, that’s on you rather than the process. May I suggest to have faith, though don’t smoke hope. It’s about the process.

What’s yours, now? What’s your actionable process?

What’s your’s, now!

Faith is a good thing to have, so long as one doesn’t sit around smoking the narcotic of hope, so long as on that topic again, trusting in the process, it takes actions based on that to have heart in what you produce.

Those kinds of actions, though thoughtful and congruent with his thinking, also indicated he simply had a different level of acceptable risk that got him killed. It certainly doesn’t have to be all or nothing.

Heck, Christopher Marlowe died soon after he swung a knife like a punch at someone in a pub, missed, and his arm came all the way back around and he stabbed himself in the head. One can bring all kinds of examples to bear, though rather it being the thought or intent that counts, it’s much more important (at least to me) how the idea comes across.

By smoking the narcotic of hope, I intended that it meant someone not just sitting on their bum getting their senses dulled by fantasyland, and instead energized and actionably doing something with their invigorated dreamland. ~ Gottfried – Banter Republic

Is it perception of not inspecting expectations and not getting what we want that makes us unhappy, or true and full bad-ass wrong situations? Either way, is perception the issue? Isn’t it our responsibility to have what we want, and if not, to adjust to have what we want? Blisscipline, anyone?!

Yes, definitely, and as well I don’t believe in control. I don’t feel anyone can control anything. It’s all Nature. One can be in control of themselves, they can guide themselves, navigate, drive life, take aim and build momentum with or to something, though I feel it’s all about experience, and what we make of it.

[Cool 28 second prologue video] (Liked only currently, Comment awaiting moderation. Happens. Great lesson to teach people AWAY from a false sense of urgency. Comment moderation. I haven’t implemented that. Maybe I will if it becomes a thing if I get too many of THOSE types of  YouTubers who wander in with their vitriol. You know the ones. Not all, certainly, though DOOD does YouTube commenters who were just born with a Pre-Approved Darwin Award Application?

[[ FYI: Sailor’s mouth is JUST FINE by me here in my blog. Let ‘er rip. This isn’t an interview on the radio. No one here will get a 1st time offense fine of $500k for saying Fuck on NPR or 101 KLOL.) ]]

(Comment awaiting moderation. Copied this one just after sending just in case) I’ll take the 3rd option, the slippery slope up the muddle between the escalators, and get some extra exercise with a good run when I have slip security up top and gear in to leave them in the dust.

“Are you going to wait for things to get better, or are you going to hustle to make them better.” I have two allergies: boredom; starvation. I’m going to enhance, reinforce, and strengthen amending the soil in my creative garden, and NEVER EVER nada at all going to use “to maintain” in my priorities and mini-policies of infinitive statements. Use maintain, and many occurrences with take your gigs South of zero.

Then, with the reinforced, enhanced, and strengthened intact, I’ll “hustle” at whatever pace is effective in the situation to make things happen. Again, I don’t believe in control, it’s all just Nature and experiences And Powerful Witness. I do have a driver’s license though, so I will actively drive and navigate with actions to get things done. ~ Cristian Mihai

Yes, definitely on, “YOU are in control of your own success and happiness.” It’s bit of semantics on my part — which I call ‘some antics’ — though, I don’t believe in control. I don’t feel anyone can control anything. It’s all Nature. One can be in control of themselves, guide themselves, navigate, drive life, take aim and build momentum with or to something. Though, I feel it’s all about experience, and what we make of it. Intention is great, though can be over-rated in the context of how something comes across being more important (to me). And, mistakes are OFLs, Opportunities For Learning.

Intention is over-rated. It’s simply more important the way something presents itself and comes across.

I have the reverse of the “i can’t get out of bed issue.” I’m allergic to boredom, so one of my tools is to mind myself tp keep aware of when I need to rest or hang something up for the time being. ~thedihedral

(checking in on a fellow blogger that used some of my words as a writing prompt. See what’s up) Checking back in on this one to see…

COOL.E.O! Zero comments!

9 solid Likes, though, and I guess people are out there not wasting trouble and getting stuff done using your prompt! That’s a great “9-zero,” as maybe those 9 (+3) are zero-ing in. There could be the other hand to the stat, though I won’t go there — not-things are best left in their not-land. Solid OFL For me either way — Opportunity For Learning. Good to know 9+3 are out there not wasting their trouble. Hopefully, they’re juicing up and fueling with it, and capitalizing on it, too.

Alternately, people may have set it up to steep on their own time with zero need for any false sense of urgency, as it’s THEIR time, ON their time. Thanks for posting this, Holly. 🙂

(just found this blog tonight on my evening blog field trip) Love it! I love fear as a navigational tool, discerns gigs in my environment I would be best to notice, though I don’t allow anxiety to kidnap my fear and distort and torture my “informing fear” into being afraid.

You led the way through excellent storytelling. Excellent holds in the writing. Wonderfully expressed!      ~ The Beirnes
