Sunset 10:30pm Salisbury England

Sitting by my tent in Salisbury, impatiently waiting for the sun to set in order to allow sleep to come, a realisation came to me.
It was 10:30pm at night when darkness should be covering the land, this beautiful sunset was happening. Watching until almost 11:30pm before the the sky became just a remembrance of the day that had just passed.
Then waking next morning at 4:30am to find the sun already filling the sky with a new day. At first how dare the sun open my eyes at such an early time I thought. How silly to be annoyed at the dawning of a new day with all its possibilities. How silly to be impatiently waiting for the sun to set. The next thought How often have I been this silly?
Then I realised that I could ride from 6am to 9pm if I chose to do so. What things I could see and do in that much time? My adventure just became longer then the narrowness of my mind had ever thought it could be.
This is just one of the events that happen on my travels in 2006 Just one of the ways the narrow streets of my mind began to widen, road blocks cleared, setting me free to explore endless possibilities. Happiness came in to the places of my mind where depression had resided for so many years. How freeing this realisation was!

Something for the Spirit

My friend Gary sent me this wonderful lift for the spirit. I think what this lady has to share is just what we need to hear from a scientist.

England 2008

I am surprised by the anxiety as I purchase my tickets. For two days I struggle with the dates and times, finally I buy. The next day after canceling the itinerary I'm back fiddling with dates and times. I purchase again, it has taken me four days to make a decision; what the heck?

This is the third year one would think this would be old hat by now, but no! Well the darn things are now purchased somewhat less anxiety, so purchased they will stay.

I leave May 7th via Delta Airlines this year. The past two I have used Continental, however this year their prices reached $1200, mine are $789 nice savings.

Mark will get a kick out of this = I almost reformatted my hard drive; almost. I was having some difficulty getting rid of a piece of software that had embedded itself in my computer somewhere. This computer has a option of letting you reload everything from a point before you started having problems, which I did. It appears that the option chose took the computer back to about the time I bought it wiping out everything I had put on it for the past year. Writings, downloads, pictures, etc.. All gone! Darn! Darn! Darn!

Sooooo all my postings from my 2006 and 2007 trips are gone, thus there will be no more entries in this blog about prior trips. Bummer dude!

I am sure there is some metaphysical or Freudian reason for this to have happened. How ever it could be, possibably, just not paying attention to business.
