The Loner Archetype

Lone Tree

I’ve got the Loner Archetype bad. Always have. Jung calls an archetype a “primitive mental image inherited from the earliest human ancestors.” …

“and Life emits a Fragrance…”

The Hard and the Soft

Yesterday, Quinzelle left a comment that struck me. She often leaves comments with great quotes from great writers, yesterday’s was from Thoreau. The part that resonated with me was “and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs.”

Sometimes, rarely, you meet people who “emit a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs.” Not in their scent, but in their attitude…

The Oregon Coastline

Oregon Coast

With the exceptions of Hawaii, Alaska, and North Dakota, I think I’ve visited every state in the US. With that, I have to say that Oregon is my favorite, with Washington a close second.

Contrary to popular lore, it is very hard to take a good picture on a sunny day – you’re better off just putting on some shades, hitting the beach and working on your tan.

Multiple Realities

Sky Scraper

On California’s highways, all vehicles that are towing – semis, RV’s, cars hauling boats – are limited to 55 mph as opposed to everyone else who can drive 65 to 70. This creates an interesting dynamic. It’s almost as if the two groups are existing in two different universes while sharing the same space…

The Male Battle Dance

Two Seagulls

In my meditations, I’ve been working on seeing the the ego clearly – as the illusion that it is. I’ve been practicing so much that it is starting to affect my dreams…
