“The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - that you’d thought special, particular to you. And here it is, set down by someone else, a person you’ve never met, maybe even someone long dead. And it’s as if a hand has come out, and taken yours.”—The History Boys
Well, as some of you have noticed, I am still in Idaho.
I am currently on my own full body mental, physical and spiritual journey in life. I get a lot of questions - Aren’t you supposed to be in Alaska? What’s up with Manfriend? Do you still have Pete? and Why don’t you blog anymore?
Trust me, there are answers to such things, but they are all irrelevant.
I am not on a God spiritual journey, not one for truth and meaning of this lifetime. More towards infinite consciousness and parallel lives and universes. I am reading this and watching a lot of this.
I am writing and drawing and painting and thinking and playing music and talking and studying and outdoor connecting and living free and being true to me.
I am searching for joy behind everything. And I am finding it.
No more blog hiatus, I am now ready to share myself with the world once again. Maybe even get a little personal here and there.
“He said, ‘I could of shot some doves or some squirrels this mornin’.’
‘A fine time to think of it. Go tell the men-folks to wash theirselves and come to table.’
He called them. The three men went outside to the water-shelf and slapped water over their faces, dabbled their hands. He brought them a clean towel.

Mill-wheel said, ‘Whiskey’s a food. I could live on whiskey.’”—From The Yearling, by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings
“Talk is cheap. Pay attention instead to walking the walk. One really only needs to know one woman, presuming that it is the right one. It isn’t a matter of quantity but of quality and that cuts both ways.”
