    INTRO TO THIS WEEK >>
    This week was spent helping Cindy to clean and organize her house; we got a lot done. No matter what I do, even cleaning, I try and aim for excellence how I can and make things better and better. 

    That is my suggestion to you, aim for excellence in all you do — no matter what.

    WORDS TO INSPIRE YOU! >>
    Inspirational quotes and motivational sayings have an amazing ability to change the way we feel about life and can change your thinking. This is why I find them so interesting and important on our paths to happiness. So what’s the secret of great quotes?​​

    You see, the way you think and feel about yourself, including your beliefs and expectations about what is possible for you, determines everything that happens in your life. It all derives from your quality of thinking.

    When you change the quality of your thinking, you change the quality of your life, sometimes instantly. Just as positive words can make someone smile, and/or, a well-timed humorous quote can make someone laugh, our thoughts react to the world in real-time. Think right—always.

    You have complete control over only one thing in the universe — your thinking – and that’s where motivational quotes come in! Self-talk is so important—THINK RIGHT!

    “When you cease to dream you cease to live.” — Malcolm Forbes

    “Failure is another steppingstone to greatness.” — Oprah Winfrey

    “Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.” — Albert Einstein

    “Success is most often achieved by those who don’t know that failure is inevitable.” — Coco Chanel​

    5/16​​Not much this week, mainly stayed at Cindy’s and helped her to work on her house. 

    5/20–Today Cindy and I took a drive out to Castlewood Canyon State Park. Near Denver, yet it seems so far away. Some great sites, take a look >>

    At the park, one strange thing is they had tape on all the tables so you could not sit down and/or eat. As I have said before — ridiculous. ​

    MY CHALLENGE FOR YOU THIS WEEK >>
    Summer will soon be here, time to start preparing your garden! Every year I grew a big vegetable garden. Easy to do, just ask me any questions or search the internet. You will eat well this summer on your veggies.

    MY DAILY JOTTINGS >>

    5/11Yesterday I went to Pearl Street Mall in downtown Boulder. Normally this is a bustling place with many people. It is empty now, on a Saturday, just a few people, seems really weird.

    I did see nice flowers though.

    5/12I went to Costco and then to Walmart to get some things. You

     know how I can’t stand how most people are unfriendly, in these stores, it is simply dreadful how people are being so self-contained.

    5/13-15Every day I have been helping Cindy organize and arrange her home. Over the years much has been gathered and needed a new home, so much was given away or when to trash. In the kitchen alone we gathered much to be gotten rid of.
    ****************************
    MY CHALLENGE FOR YOU THIS WEEK >>
    Do you have kids or are any around you? Teach them something that will make their life better down the road. Perhaps a skill, or something you can do that they can’t (yet.)

    ​Currently parked in Boulder, this upcoming week I want to get out to the local wilderness and back to what I like. Of course, I will let you know. ​

    INTRO TO THIS WEEK >>

    People are terrified of each other.

    Nobody talks, the eyes with masked faces are the eyes of scared animals now.

    I don’t want to wear a mask, I might get sick from my own breath.

    Something was broken.

    We have to be united now for the survival of the entire human race!

    And fight now before the cage doors close.

    Love to ALL.

    4. “You can’t wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club.” —Jack London

    Not much happened this week, but here you go >>

    5/4Staying with my friend Cindy for a bit in Boulder, well, parked on her driveway and sleeping in the van. Just got back from Home Deport, then Safeway. Home Depot seemed fine, a little control. At Safeway, they said everyone had to wear a mask. Cindy went into the “controlled” environment. I hate this new controlled life “they” want us to lead – I WILL NOT PARTICIPATE!

    INTRO TO THIS WEEK >>
    This COVID virus—YIKES – typing this while I drink my “Corona” beer.

    I was out and saw people who were wearing their “masks” while riding their bikes in the open air. This is scary to me and I will not participate. If I feel sick or sneezing I will just stay away from people. I hope this is not a new human habit that people feel they must follow; wearing a mask. I like the freedom of the open air. I hate the current restrictions, terrible theyare.

    Yes, in Boulder now, I came to Boulder to be at the Boulder Circus Center to be able to get online and charge my devices. Thank you, Cindy, for letting me be here. Here is BCC >> http://bouldercircuscenter.net/

    Boulder is the most bicycle-friendly city I know of, are we riding as much as I can, unicycle, too. The weather will be like getting nicer and nicer, so biking will be nice.

    MY DAILY JOTTINGS >>
    4/24—A friend of mine, John Hammink, who I met through Facebook and lived in Mountain View, California, contacted me and said he moved to Colorado. So, I drove up to Lyons to see him.

    Look here to learn about John (I was quite surprised and impressed.)
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Hammink 

    And, when did wonderful little town Lyons is.

    4/25This morning, I took my bike and unicycle off the back, I cleaned them thoroughly and then put them back. A constant process, I cleaned other parts of the van, too. A great start to the day.

    4/26Met John’s landlord, Orion Molfese, who lives in the house in front, an interesting chap. He has many skills, such as he built his own home (a nice place.) I have ideas to make his home even nicer and want to help organize what he does have, we will see.

    Also, we all went to visit Robbie Jack, who developed a game app, sold it, and brought in MUCH money. He lives the lifestyle that “he” wants, great to see. We played an assortment of games, quite fun.

    4/27I had a package delivered to my friend Peter Davison’s house, who is near Boulder. Good to see Peter, but like all of this, age is showing up on your skin and body.

    In your life, Peter, you took the skill of juggling and brought it to the limit—one of the best in the world you are. Then, as an after-birth, you took the skill of ballet dance to the extreme. Peter lives about 30 miles from Boulder, he comes to see his dad who lives in Boulder.

    Here is Peter >>
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sPrtlt5WpRs

    So, I was in Boulder again, yes, another city (you know how I like cities.) I was going to head out to Rocky mountain national park for the night. But, I saw a smaller park on the way. Such a splendid Park it is. It will be very quiet and dark, how I like it.

    At this park have been many pretty girls walking by, great to see. Sorry, no photos. 

    Earlier today I took everything out of the van and clean the woodwork and the windows. seems that my fire-stove has left smoke coloring and on the inside. So, I will be giving more of a cleaning later, and limit fires in the van.

    And today I went to another food bank. They gave me enough food for an army—an army of Kit.

    The knee on my jeans ripped. People pay extra to have ripped knees. I don’t like it, I will be getting rid of rid of the jeans.

    I wanted to let you know, I do brush my teeth every night, like a good boy.

    I drove to Rocky Mountain National Park, I knew it was closed, but like to see the area with where the town of Estes Park is.

    I actually drove up to the park entrance, which was gated. So, I went back to Estes Park, I found Estes lake!
    I found no sign saying, “No overnight parking”, so, I was there for the night.

    Cindy and I on our long hike.

    4/28Had a great sleep at the lake, no one came by no one bothered me.
    Got a little cold, but they have enough coverings to keep me warm through the night.

    4/29-30Spent time at Boulder circus center alone here, except for a couple who people who take care of the building. Of course, there are no classes were going on.

    I did work around the building to improve the place, and much weeding to help clear the grounds and make it look nice. I also did work on the van, I got new window coverings that I had to cut to fit, much better now.

    5/1Planning to go on a bike ride at 11 this morning with Cindy. I will let you know how it goes later.
    Did you know Cindy is a great juggler? Watch this >>

    Cindy and I just got back from a five-mile hike at Betasso Preserve. A little known place, I believe, I was a great area. There were many mountain bikers up there concurring the trail; a hard ride. It was a fun hike, yet, my feet hurt.
    Enjoy this video >>

    MY CHALLENGE FOR YOU THIS WEEK >>

    INTRO TO THIS WEEK >>
    Driving on small roads off the beaten path in New Mexico, I saw a dirt road going off to—who knows where—of course, that was the direction I took. Drove a couple of miles, where no humans are, I saw some cows out in the land and saw some terrific areas.

    As you would know, I love to go to places where not many go. Of course, I am writing to you right now using a pen and paper, to go onto the computer later.

    What is surprising to me is that GPS is tracking me on these dirt roads, most are covered. Then I pulled off and parked for a time on a turn-off, where I drank a beer, then continued my trek with a smile on my face.

    Then on to Castle Rock Overlook, with no one around, this is where I will spend the night.

    Here is Castle Rock, have a view >>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5oe3mgriVvY
    I just have to reiterate, get out to the wilderness how you can, it will add so much to your life.
    *****************************
    WORDS TO INSPIRE YOU! >>
    The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this: A human creature born abnormally, inhumanely sensitive. To them… a touch is a blow, a sound is a noise, a misfortune is a tragedy, a joy is an ecstasy, a friend is a lover, a lover is a god, and failure is death. Add to this cruelly delicate organism the overpowering necessity to create, create, create — so that without the creating of music or poetry or books or buildings or something of meaning, their very breath is cut off… They must create, must pour out creation. By some strange, unknown, inward urgency they are not really alive unless they are creating.” – Pearl Buck

    F@*# self-doubt. I despise it. I hold it in contempt, along with the hell-spawned ooze-pit of Resistance from which it crawled. I will NEVER back off. I will NEVER give the work anything less than 100%. If I go down in flames, so be it. I’ll be back.” -Steven Pressfield

    Creativity comes from trust. Trust your instincts. And never hope more than you work.” -Rita Mae Brown

    Institutions will try to preserve the problem to which they are the solution”—Clay Shirky

    I am not afraid…I was born to do this.” – Joan of Arc

    If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.” ~Antoine De Saint Exupery

    It takes a great deal of courage to stand up to your enemies, but even more to stand up to your friends.” – J. K. Rowling

    Do not be critics, you people, I beg you. I was a critic and I wish I could take it all back because it came from a smelly and ignorant place in me, and spoke with a voice that was all rage and envy. Do not dismiss a book until you have written one, and do not dismiss a movie until you have made one, and do not dismiss a person until you have met them. It is a f@*$%load of work to be open-minded and generous and understanding and forgiving and accepting, but Christ, that is what matters. What matters is saying yes.” – Dave Eggers

    Adversity is just change that we haven’t adapted ourselves to yet.” -Aimee Mullins

    The secret of life…is to fall seven times and to get up eight times.” – Paulo Coelho, from The Alchemist

    Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.” – Helen Keller

    Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get — only what you are expecting to give — which is everything. What you will receive in return varies. But it really has no connection with what you give. You give because you love and cannot help giving.” – Katharine Hepburn

    Far better to live your own path imperfectly than to live another’s perfectly.” -Bhagavad Gita

    I never perfected an invention that I did not think about in terms of the service it might give others… I find out what the world needs, then I proceed to invent” – Thomas Edison

    MY DAILY JOTTINGS >>
    4/17—I went to Costco and could not believe what I saw. Each cashier has a plexiglass shield to hide behind so they could not breathe air of the customer.

    These were put on as permanent. I hate this life in this new world! It makes me not want to live anymore, but I will so I can write words to you.

    I went to Costco to fill up on gas, and to buy some salad mix. I miss their old days with the free samples where I could make a meal of it. Now I never will experience that again, sad to say.

    This is a new and different life we’re living in now. I don’t think I like it, the world could always be made better, but this is Draconian. Who could like this new life on Earth with his worldwide change? I certainly don’t.

    I’m seeing so many people wearing a face mask. Most do not even know this doesn’t really help much. I will never wear a mask; I don’t live my life in fear. I refuse to wear a MASK. In fact, I will die instead of wearing a mask.

    I have no fear of death, in fact, at times I welcome the idea of the long sleep. But, for now, I have to be here to write these words for you, hoping that these words do inspire you and help you live a better life (is it helping?)

    Along with the mask, people are much more unfriendly, although, so many people are naturally unfriendly anyway – a sad thing – they will not look me in the eye it will not smile they will not communicate.  These people hide behind their mask and are in their own little world. I hope you are not of this sort. It’s like non-humans are roaming the Earth – – HELP ME!

    So right now I’m in the City of Albuquerque. Going to see someone about my bike tomorrow, a guy who helps to repair bicycles.

    Earlier, I was at Walmart. Too noisy to stay around there, so, as I often do, on GPS I looked for a local park. I found one, very quiet here, I should sleep well tonight; as I hope you do, too.

    4/18Went to a Walmart this morning, which now opens at 6 a.m. instead of being open 24 hours. I saw a line of trained humans who were ten feet apart waiting to enter the store. It made me laugh.

    On the floor in Walmart, they had arrows pointing the direction people need to take when they walk.
    I hate this new “training” of people.

    4-19Found a wonderful place to camp for the night. It’s incredible right on the wonderful canyon with rock outcroppings and as you see from the pictures how nice it is. I’m back to what I love in life.

    I’m concerned about my burnt foot that I spilled boiling water on. This happened about two weeks ago and doesn’t seem to be getting better. Last week, my ankle bone started hurting, and then just a few days ago, my lower leg and knee starting to hurt, which is strange because the injury is down at my foot. Yes, I’m running scared. Yikes.

    Driving today, I went through snowfall as I moved into Colorado, what a pleasant surprise. I was going through Angel Peak Scenic Area. Watch this about this wonderful area >>

    As I went through Wolf Creek Pass, I was way up there, 3308.9088 meters (10,856 feet.) Driving this road, US Hwy 160, was spectacular.

    4/20—I saw that I would be driving through Salida in Colorado, I remembered my juggling friend, Joe Lobeck, who lives in Salida. Here is Joe, enjoy >>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y7TukvCQgE4

    Staying a few days with Joe, his girlfriend, his sister, and his mom at his mom’s house, what a truly wonderful visit.

    4/21—Staying with Joe and his family for a few days, we are having a fantastic time together. Today, while Joe was juggling at Riverside Park in Salida. I taught him some new moves and helped him to improve what he currently does. As you might know, I cannot juggle as I used to, and can’t do many of the tricks, but my knowledge of juggling is sharp, as well as how I can help others advance.

    4/22—Time to head off from Salida today. Still heading north. Joe, Joan, Lexee, and Jenny, thank you so much for the great stay.

    Here is Joe and I sharing a 3 club juggling pattern.

    Today my drive will take me more toward Boulder, yes, here I am again.

    4/20—Parked outside a McDonald’s on their wifi this morning. Near to Denver now, I really don’t like big cities.
