As you know, I was traveling up north to meet with Alice, who my heart fell for after we were writing words back and forth through Facebook. On my way up to Buffalo, NY, I figured out that I was chasing something that might not even be there. So, back south I went.

Then I connected with Liisa (yes, spelled with two i’s). She suggested I come back north and the two of us could go see Suzi Wallace Fire (yes, “Fire” is a real name passed on from her ex-husband.) Wondering if something might develop between us, back to the north for me. We are all about the same age.

What a wonderful day of remembrances we had between the three of us. Something with Suzi was not in the cards, it seemed, but great to spend time with her and Liisa.

Right now I am typing while parked back at Congaree National Park (I’ve taken you here before, remember?) As I’ve written previously, a small park, but I love any wilderness.



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 and important on the path to joy and happiness.

Inspiration >> The process of being mentally stimulated to do a certain thing. I hope to inspire you with my words. Words have power.

You see, the way you think and feel about yourself, including your beliefs and expectations about what is possible for you, determine 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. You have this control.

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!

Me I hope the words I pick do help you.


1. “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” — Gandhi

Live for what’s worth dying for, and leverage technology to create the world you wish to see.

2. “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” — Albert Einstein

Tapping into genius is simple in theory yet hard in practice. It comes from mastering the one activity you love most.

3. “A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.” — George Bernhard Shaw

Experiments are necessary for the experiences that create growth and new opportunities.

4. “He who fears he will suffer, already suffers because he fears.” — Michel De Montaigne “

FOMO creates suffering, yet those who suffer, have FOMO.

5. “We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty.” — Mother Theresa “

Love is necessary for a healthy life. We think to live a healthy life, just like food and water. I practice daily by loving everyone around me.”



11/14You may have thought I learned my lesson last week about chasing girls I know from the internet. Yes, I am heading north again to meet up with two beauties I know through the internet. (I also know them in person, so, different this time.)

I meet with them on Wednesday, I have five days to do—what? I will spend the time right, you’ll see. Liisa I no mainly from first knowing her brother, the great juggler Dana Tison. Suzi I remember from when we met in the early eighties when she was in the performance field. Dana throwing 5 torches, below. 

In the past I got my tires from Discount Tire a year ago. Time for a tire rotation. There is no charge in that I got the tires from them. What a great company and excellent time today in dealing with them. If you need tires, check them out.

So, this evening I checked into The Best Western Hotel (well, I will be parked in their lot to sleep the night in the van. No guests, no employees, no one here—so hard in the world right now.

While at Discount Tire I dropped my computer on my foot. My foot cushioned the computer from harm, but my foot is quite damaged. The computer slipped out of the bag while on a table and fell on my foot slicing edge first. Hurts like hell tonight, I will let you know tomorrow.

So, I was in the Jacksonville, FL area, and you know how I hate big cities. So, to the north I went out of the main part of the city.

Eventually getting to North Carolina where I met up with Liisa Tison-Pyke. Then, the two of us will be going to visit our old friend Suzi Wallace Fire.


11/15Drove to Best Buy in Charlotte, South Carolina. My computer needs to be looked at to make it faster and make sure everything is running sufficient,

As you might know, I carry with me or 100 books in the van for my reading pleasure. Right now I’m reading “Family Happiness” by Leo Tolstoy. I’ve heard about his amazing writing, but I’m just not seeing it while reading this book. Have you read this? What do you think?

11/16As you know my computer is at the shop, Best Buy and with Geek Squad. Strange, I feel lost without it. Mainly to write this blog to you each week, but I also enjoy YouTube videos. Currently I am using my phone and voice typing.

I drove by more cotton fields today, hard to believe they can make your shirt from these little balls.

It wasn’t too long ago, but it’s hard to remember not having computers or GPS or a portable phone. We got along fine without them in the past, at times I almost want to switch back to that time.

Without having a computer to use, I had written down some food banks to go to so I can collect more food. I have enough to last me for a month, I believe.

It surprises me how many people attend these places to get food. Lines of people and or lines of cars, it’s incredible. And, I am seeing some very nice expensive vehicles. Of course, people have to eat!

11/19-20—Stayed, once again, at Congaree National Park. Such a small park, but I do like it here. Last night I slept in the van while parked in a dirt parking lot. Very quiet—very dark—the way I like it.

I’m lonely out here, I would love to hear from you.

Either through Facebook or email,
