Flashback

Went outside today to sit on my porch and enjoy the sun and had the experience above. Was a total flashback of me in the early 80s. No internet, video games, or mobile phones. With all that’s going on right now, I got a good vibe that just maybe we might slow down a bit and start “living” instead of buying, doing, and super sizing. It made me smile especially the t-shirt😎

Paused

 

Words are hard to find you see, so not many comments from me.

A tornado of thoughts though, and a way I fly.

There must be a reason, at least I believe so.

A hand holds us down bringing us to our knees.

Be still and sit in the corner to think of our deeds.

No this isn’t a sin so don’t go there.

An awaking I guess is better to say.

The time is now and you have no choice.

You’ve fallen before. You know this course.

Except this time it’s with everyone else too.

So big it’s hard to comprehend.

All thrown up with one big change.

Together we hunker all on one side like never before.

So we sit.

And we fret.

And make silly comments as we shake from within.

Hoping it will be over soon, so we can go back to before.

But right now there is not a way.

Exhausted enough enough my untamed mind.

I surrender and eventually you too.

We connect to our god, spirit, or guides or just call it the love from inside.

Love holds us tight and we let out a big sigh.

In this space we were meant to be.

To learn is only yet to see.

I’m not sure how we couldn’t..oh how I pray.

Before is no more and that’s more than okay.

So we are paused for another day.

No door to step through just yet.

So not many comments from me, words are hard to find you see.

Surrounding us All with Peace and Love,

Dwight

Sunday Hug

Pretty raw and scary maybe with no shower, no tidying up, just me on a Sunday morning thinking of you all and this beautiful world and just wanting to do something…something that may help.

So here it is a raw genuine hug full of so much love and reassurance that WE will persevere and become globally united with much love and light for EVERYONE.

One thing we all can do is never stop giving love…never!

Hugs to you all my super heroes❤️

Fun vanlife video

Hey my friends,

Just going to keep it light and share this video with you all. I’m doing well and just getting a bit quiet I guess. It’s a good thing. Sending out big loving vibes and hugs to you all.

Here’s some entertainment with a good message and vibe. Chrome lives in a van with his bulldog Cruz. They hang near Vancouver, Canada but travel all over. I get a lot of joy subscribing to his channel and thought some of you might too.

Peace,

Dwight

Click on image to view video. If that doesn’t work go to YouTube and search for Vancity Vanlife. Video title is Living in solitude allows you time to get to know who you are.

Reminder

Just a friendly reminder to us all. Take some time this weekend, even if it’s only a couple of minutes, to sit and breath in and out the word “love”. Providing love to ourselves and others has always been our most powerful tool❤️

Peace,

Dwight

Bought a toy today

Woke up this morning and decided with my tax return that instead of being responsible and boring and paying down my mortgage that I’d say fuck it and have some fun this year.

It’s a pretty small bike and taps out at 55mph, but the fun is in the size of the tires and heading out on all the mountain dirt roads around me. This is one of my steps this year to start enjoying a hobby. I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of this and some neat mountain pictures this spring.

Peace,

Dwight

Womens Forest Trail

I changed it up this past weekend and went on a leisurely hike of the Womens Forest Trail in Divide, Colorado. It’s a 5.1 loop with an elevation gain of 324ft. Just a wonderful hike to reconnect with nature.

When I got home I tried to lookup this women’s club and couldn’t find anything on the web. I put out a post on a local Facebook group and Bonnie Fischel did find this Link on the history of the group, but no mention on the specifics of the creation of this area/trail. While reading about the history, I discovered CFCW was established in 1895. I couldn’t agree more with this last paragraph from the link:

The position of women in society has drastically changed since the beginning of the CFWC. Women’s clubs throughout history have served to provide a place for women to establish common goals and reinforce common values. Together they have facilitated the advancement of women in society and continue to preserve that legacy.”

Here in the United States and a few other countries, the month of March is designated Women’s History Month. It highlights the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. In honor of this not only do I want to thank these forward thinking women for allowing future generations to enjoy this spectacular area, but I also have these two women that I want to celebrate as strong role models in my history and society. The spread of love and compassion is just priceless.. You can read about them from my prior blog posts:

What women would you highlight?

Peace,

Dwight
