Is it a wonder I/we spend a lot of time outdoors or gazing through windows? Kentucky is beautiful in autumn.

We have to walk to see this:


And this:


But this is viewable from Panoply’s windows:


And this:


Yeah, we are smiling!

Ok, I have now totally lost it. But that is not unusual for me. I’m not sure I really intend on doing NaNoWriMo, but I’m going to type something tonight – out of the blue – and see where it takes me. Last year it took me nowhere, though I actually had an idea, but in 2006, no idea in hand, words flew out of my head onto the keyboard. I loved it. Those words will probably remain on my home computer. Sometimes one must hide their insanity. Grin.

(Note: I saved this as a draft and pulled up a blank text file and started typing… as in words flew out onto the keyboard. I typed about a page and started laughing at how ridiculous this month will be and decided sleep might be a good thing!)

That said, I had made the decision to resurrect my blogs today, not remembering NaBloWriMo was starting today. Great timing! I’ll post that here.

NaBloWriMo - National Blog Writing Month

And then, Robert Brewer of Poetic Asides is tossing daily prompts at us this month. Prompts I can rarely resist. Those poems get posted in his comments.

If it isn’t midnight where you are, quick, click on the latter two and start writing. If you would prefer to write a novel, you can wait until tomorrow to start…. GRIN.

Come on y’all, let your minds and creativity fly!

Confined by space, ordered by necessity, sparse by intent; unlimited by vision, spontaneous by nature, filled by absorption: What? RVing!

Where to next? Here?

Here?

I’ve never RVed, but we will soon. My definition is based on my impressions of blog posts by RVers – and by, just, the obvious. Like home or lifestyle anywhere, it is in part, what we make it. I plan on making it thus.

Only the Good Friday, a meme from This Eclectic Life, started by Shelly’s desire to incite us! No, not to riot, though that is a more appropriate use of the word incite! She wants us to drop our daily blah, angst, downward spiral, anger, etc.. and post about good. Well, I’ve been lax at posting… bad, but only ’cause I was lost elsewhere in good….. Today, I am supposed to be working (yes, I like it, ONCE I GET STARTED!), but I had to check my twitter just once more, since I’ve been using it for a quick poetry outlet lately.

Twitter has become a quick source of inspiration for me – and practice at fewer words! (Yes, I need more practice.) More and more while in a hurry lately, I have spent time reading or tweeting. And just as one blog leads to another to yet another and a great discovery, a tweeter’s poetry prompt led me to tweet a Haiku or Senryu, which led a poet to my tweets, and following that person led me to this musician he was following.

I LOVE Pinstripe 45′s voice, the tone, the song. I get so excited when I discover a musician that evokes emotion.

So, my thought for Only the Good Friday: Make life your ‘recreational vehicle’: share, discover, indulge, feel, breathe, be, and SING! (And, of course, blog and tweet.)

Want to read what others came up with? Might surprise you. Click here for Shelly’s Only the Good Friday post and links to others who had something good to say today, as she is “spinning out of control”. or click icon below for explanation of Only the Good Friday.

What is your good?

If it’s not your music taste, well, while you are on YouTube, why not just randomly click on an artist or ? Most of you will like him, though, I think.

It has been established we would love to RV between WA and FL, had hoped to do it sooner, but it turned out public insurance adjusting does not always move quite as fast as we had imagined. (Yes, oh son of ours, you were correct.) So leaving each summer would not be a wise move for us — yet. We processed, chewed on, and swallowed that — without choking too much.

We wanted to get an RV and live in it down here rather than spend money on rentals, but there are not any parks that we either like or can afford close enough to the area Leon wants to be. That we processed, chewed on, and swallowed – finally, but we had a few coughing fits getting it down.

With our lease coming up and wanting an RV to ‘run from the storms’ if it were to be an active tropical season, we pulled out the “buy RV now plan” and rehashed it. Man oh man, it caused us a few more coughing fits, but in the end, living an extra hour and a half away from his offices and clients, considering the number of trips he makes to each, we finally forced it down.

And you know what? Though I constantly read, ‘go for your dream now,’ and do understand that ‘if you don’t go for it now — it could be too late,’ I, also have confidence we won’t get caught up in the ‘wait until the perfect time’ thing that trips most everyone up. I am far too impatient to wait for perfection, and I know it does not exist. And, though it took years to plant the RVing thought in Leon (or bring it out, whichever applies), it took hold.

So, we’ll just save a bit more money and then Leon can clean toilets at campgrounds if he wants – as long as I don’t have to — and as long as they are in the Pacific Northwest – but no more than four days a week, we will have hiking and kayaking and farmers markets to visit.

Yeah, our RV dream life will come — hopefully sans the toilet cleaning, but the Pacific Ocean and the Mountains are worth it to Leon – and as long as he washes his hands before he grabs that RV handle, it’s OK with me, too.

For now, I’m just living one of my other dreams; doesn’t really matter which one for the moment, as long as it is one of them. Yeah, some have more weight than others, but does that matter when you aren’t trying to shed any? (Could not resist, sorry.) For today, I will just enjoy the view of rain clouds and waves breaking!

Dream, it is healthy. Go for the ones you can, prepare for the ones just out of reach – otherwise you might not grab them when it’s time. And while you are making excuses to not go for your dream, check out Tales of Technomadia’s series, “Answers to Common Excuses not to Travel Full Time.” I’ve loved reading it.
