Dream It When You Sing It

Tall And Tan And Young And Lovely        The Girl From Ipanema Goes Walking      And When She Passes       Each One She Passes     Goes Ah       When She Walks        She's A Samba       That Swings So Cool And Sways So Gentle       That When She Passes    Each One She Passes      Goes AH       Oh, But I Watch Her So Sadly       How Can I Tell Her      I Love Her 


The Girl from Ipanema

Antonio Carlos Jobim 1965 

CYCLING:

Couldn't tell you the last time that I rode in a rain storm. Well, storm, that is a bit of an over exaggeration there. Saturday Evening was just a sprinkle but still. It is such a rare occasion and that wet asphalt smell aloft was priceless. 


And windy, did you think I was pulling your leg??? Check out these past few days. Sand blasted by wild debris and crosswinds that almost catch ya off guard. Yes, spring time riding in the high desert. Oh Baby 



And when I checked this particular weather system, the pattern always looks like this. You can literally see the Grand Valley in this radar shot. So I choose to ride. Threw a light weight rain poncho in my bladder bag and went for it. 9 times out of 10, bone dry around these parts. The massive Grand Mesa to our east splits these average storm fronts and forces the disturbance to the north or south. We just simply dance with the lightning strikes. Yah0000ooooooo

However, are my legs ever so weak and non responsive. May is Bike2Work Month and I drove the SH*T out of the ( imagine the Dong Need Food saying Automobile ) automobile. Well, that isn't exactly true ether. Still riding the commuter bike daily but it wasn't until last weekend that I started actually riding any worthy miles of even mentioning. For example, I have not logged a hundred miler yet this year. In Fact, Not Even A 100K Ride. Whats My Deal 

ORTHO:

This moment in time was another reflection of how I view Ortho IN our world. This guy was working with his Brown Chocolate Lab. He was using hand signals and possibly a dog whistle. From what little I observed while riding by, pretty Phuc-N impressive really. The dog's head is just off the dock in the photo below. 


What struck me was how the dog was able to move towards ease. No wasted movements. Just like an Ortho Principle. Less Is More!! The human knew when not to over work or confuse the dog. Keeping the exercise engaging. Honor What Arises 


I am able to resinate with these traits when visiting children/seniors in my office. Not over working their little/worn out nervous system is key. Listening with hands, ending a section before its time, and offering them the freedom to explore without judgment. Kids rebounded so quickly. Meeting clients at their level allows them to keep their power. Healing From Within

COINS:

Talk About STOKED!!!! I recently went through some old dusty covered boxes in the garage and happily began chucking all kinds of odd treasures. Feeling on top of the world while shedding my skin. 


I came across some old ticket stubs and remember when it only cost us $42 ( of course its 42 ) to see The Panic at Red Rocks. The Blue Z And I would migrate on over The Continental Divide every June like a wild flock of birds for a three night run. Back when we could afford it. And that eclectic pre-game show in the parking lot, SO MISS THAT! 


And here is one for the ages, like twenty damn years ago. That's Right, Two Decades Ago!!! In order to move here to GJ, I landed a job with an NBC Affiliate. KKCO was a title sponsor and hook ups were prevalent for events here in the valley. This was the year that Charlie Daniels blew up the stage as the main headliner. His back up band of heathens went dark and eerie with their live rendition and theatrical onsets of  Devil Down In Georgia. Zac Brown Band And Blake Sheldon would round out my top three shows from years of Country Jam. Proud To Say, Have Never Purchased A Tix 


But this was the score of a life time. I have been under the impression that this bag of silver had been swiped many moons ago. Silver Bicentennial Dollars, Bicentennial Half Dollars, Bicentennial Quarters, Dinosaur Nickels, Pure Silver Quarters /Dimes, and a few Wheat Pennies for good measure. My only known coin collection showcases a 1917 & 1922 Buffalo Nickel, A 1907 Indian Penny, and numerous Two Dollar Bills and a handful of Silver Certificate One's and Fives. And now, my collection is all back together again. Two Thumbs Up 

SEND VIBES:

I have a rather emotional and quite possibly stressful weekend coming up. Could really use some of the good stuff. So send it my way and remind me to take the higher road. I am not living in F.E.A.R. ( False Evidence Appearing Real ) but pretty dang accurate at predicting or forecasting family dynamics. Stressful 

Now, coming out of a Lunar Eclipse this morning, feeling way frisky and alive, The Super Moon tonight, one of the most powerful time frames we have for change, transformation, improvement, expansion, and our raising to the highest vibrational level possible, is taking place when my urgency for stability is seriously lacking. I went ahead and filled TWO mason jars with filtered water and will lay out all my prized stones for an offering. 

It was mind boggling observing humans completely melt down throughout the day today. This poor person lost their marbles and even started crying in True Value earlier this morning. It wasn't the sale item, it wasn't the customer service, it was simply a dehydrated human spinning out without knowing of these solar forces greater than them. They live in the high arid desert and I am so thankful that I don't subscribe. Under my mask, with irrigation parts in hand, I was smiling from ear to ear like the Joker dancing down the stairwell. Its Party Time

RADIO SHOW:

Will be back on air June 3rd!! More details to follow and any musical suggestions are welcome. Anyway, I leave you with another short time lapse from my office window. I shot this last Saturday and Main Street was charmingly lively. Thanx For Supporting The Cause 


GOALS:

  1. Be The Better Person
  2. Dont Phuc-N Judge
  3. Watch My Oats, Wheat, And Barley Intake
  4. Creativity Photograph The Moment
  5. Rather Imperative To Play Nice 
  6. Offer Positive Outcomes 
  7. Sip Pendletons On Ice As A Prerequisite 
  8. Work With My Intentions, Health, Inner Self, Self Esteem, & Self Expression 

Stay Strong Out There, Smile Often, And Hug Your Local Hippy,

Cheers

  10. Fantastic pictures as always. Those tickets probably bring back some great memories, I am so glad to see outdoor events start to come back... and those coins, quite a collection. It has been an exceptionally windy spring here as well, looking forward to the still air and high humidity of summer.

  11. My grandmother used to be a coin collector. She had those binders filled with all kinds of old coins, loved looking at them as a kid. She used to tell me all good things are like cream, if you do good the cream will rise to the top. You're the cream, you will rise above the crap so don't worry and be happy. Have a stress free weekend and remember all the good vibes that are being sent your way from around the universe. Till next time!

  15. Free summer concerts in Central Park, Charlie Daniels did a solo performance, his boots were tapping out the rhythm and It was such fun. The moon was huge last night. Best of luck, I have the same dread of any family entanglements at the moment, so best of luck with yours. Love the Eagle, TC

  16. So glad you found your coin collection! I remember those Eisenhower dollars with the moon on the back. I'm sure I had one at some point when I was a kid, but probably spent it on candy bars. LOL

    Love that eagle on the riverbank! And the beautiful scenery, as always.

  17. Great collection of coins. I used to collect.

  18. That is a lovely song, A Girl From Panama. The old photo meme is funny. We all change, don't we? I think we all do pass through so many changes in life.
    The coins are fabulous. So great you found them. I don't collect old coins but I think my husband has got some in some drawer. It's fun to look at them.
    The Ortho principle of less is more sounds great. When I used to go swimming daily, I noticed how over the years my style evoloved- easy movements, no wasted energy...like the dog you described. Animals do it naturally, we humans sometimes need more time to remember to be natural.
    Great photos of nature. It's great you're cycling despite the wind.

  22. Oddly enough, I was flying high last week. Eclipse? Or that awesome trip to visit my waterskiing friend? Back down to earth now. Couldn't see the eclipse here anyways due to thick cloud cover. We always miss the good stuff.

    Aren't those old ticket stubs a rush of memories? Every once in a while, I'll come across one and smile. Always a good time, seeing live musci...
