In that I am not currently traveling and in the wilderness, I have no new photos for you. Enjoy the photos from my past travels.

As I complete and post my blog each week, I have the conation to start the next one. These weekly writings of mine show me that all journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware, we are all on our way.

When we set out on life’s journeys, we assume our plans and preparations will keep us firmly on course. But we are often blindsided by the twists and turns that our road takes, and we hardly ever end up where we expected.

I never thought I would end up in South Carolina with Beth, what a fabulous highlight in my life. I’ve had many life-changes in my experience, being with Beth is another of my big changes (you should see my smile.)

You might know from my past writings, I have been very lonely in my life, traveling around the US all alone. To meet up with Beth and the strong love that was brought on is a fabulous thing.

Charles Dickens once wrote:
“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of it for others.”
I hope my words do that for you.


Inspirational quotes and motivational sayings have an amazing ability to change the way we feel about life and can change our thinking.

This is why I find them so interesting, challenging, and important on our path to joy and happiness and finding ways to inspire ourselves as well as others.

Inspirational quotes and ideas provide us with a quick and timely burst of wisdom to get our focus back, offering the inspiration needed for the day or occasion.

I hope to inspire you with my words.
Words have power.
At any age, you ca
n (and should)
make changes to make your life better.

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 improve 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 amusing quote can make someone laugh, your own thoughts react to the world in real-time. You have this control!

In fact, you have complete control over only one thing in the universe — your thinking — and that’s where motivational quotes come in!

To keep your motivation, you have to use each day as an opportunity for improvement, to be better, to get a little bit closer to your goals. It might sound like a lot of work—and with your busy schedule—next to impossible. But you can do it!

Self-talk is so important—THINK RIGHT!
Motivational words, yes, they’re just words.
But they’re positive words; they will keep you on track.

Remember, you are only as young as the last time you changed your mind. Keep your thoughts and self-talk fun and productive and always reaching for advancement.

I hope these words I pick do help you.

10/30—We went across the road to feed the horses, of course, Jemma the dog was right there with us. Have you ever heard of a dog who eats carrots? I think because the horses were eating, Jemma had to have one, too. It was cute and kind of funny.

We just finished dinner. I had bought at Costco, a pizza-making kit (me?) It tasted quite good. You put on your own toppings, I added many.

While eating I was watching the small tank with one goldfish and one small neon tetra. Goldfish should actually be called “Orange Fish”. I have never seen one of these fish that is actually gold.

I was trying to imagine how life is for the little fish, the only world they know is in the small tank and getting fed once a day. What if we humans are actually on this small planet within a huge world where there are creatures watching us?

Do goldfish get lonely if kept in a tank by themselves? You might be surprised to learn that, no, they don’t. At least, not as far as we know.

Based on everything we know about goldfish, it is very unlikely that goldfish feel loneliness and boredom. It’s normal to wonder whether a goldfish will get lonely if kept in a tank on their own. Perhaps the size of their brain?

You see, a goldfish swimming around the same tank, all day, by themselves; looking at the same plants, sticking their noses into the same bits of gravel, swimming under the same ornamental bridge.

You leave for work or school for hours on end, so there’s nothing going on outside the tank for them to look at, they’re not being fed regularly throughout the day, and you just found out that the “three-second memory” is a myth. Their mind is fine with that.

Surely a goldfish will get bored unless you get another fish for them to live with? Well, actually, no, they probably won’t. We have a neon tetra living with the goldfish, they never connect.

10/31-11/4—Not much to report on this week.

11/5–Matthew and Brendon from came today to install a new cable system. The computer speed increased so much, I love it. Of course, while the guys were here I had to teach them to juggle; which they did. 



Have you looked into learning a new language? It will advance your mind to do that. This week, start to discover which other linguistic communication you would like to learn.



Time to get out to some parks and wilderness this week, will you?
