How be you all on this 92nd day of the year? Well I hope. It is Monday, April 2nd, after all the hoopla between April's Fool and Easter. Still, the day is nice, the breeze is cool and the sun is out and shining. Anywho, I should be planning my Appalachian Trail Hike more, since I will hopfully be on the trail next year. Something I wanted to do to celebrate my 50th birthday. If all goes well that is. The skies are clearing and I should be exercising more! I should be doing more like clearing up this anterior pelvic tilt and to strengthen my back. So much I have to do and time is dwindling fast.

Well met on this 91st day of the year fellow adventurers. Whatever gods you feel free to venerate, keep you safe and warm on this chill Easter day. "But James," you may ask, "gods on Easter?" Well considering the sheer amount of cross-pollination of the holidays between the all the religions, ... Well met on this 91st day of the year fellow adventurers. Whatever gods you feel free to venerate, keep you safe and warm on this chill Easter day. "But James," you may ask, "gods on Easter?" Well considering the sheer amount of cross-pollination of the holidays between the all the religions, it is a safe bet. Anyhow, I did not want to talk about religion. The last few weeks I have been thinking about the stories I am writing. There is one that I have been working on for a while now and I have come to the conclusion that I need a world book for it. I have one, but it is small and incomplete. I need to pick it up again and add the thoughts I have had to it. Well, that is what I am going to do now. See ya on the 'morrow.

When you tell a story, may it be as mighty as a tree. Strong roots, a straight trunk and a mighty canopy. Taken at Sequoia National Park in 2015.

All ready the year is nearly a quarter done. It send shivers down my spine when time seems to go by so fast. It is like, where has the time gone? It was only in 2005 that my little brother passed away due to leukemia. After that, it seemed that my family just fell apart. My father in 2009 and my mother in 2013. Sigh. Anywho, I did not mean to bring up this morbid topic. Today is a good day, even if I didn't win the lottery, hehe. Ahh, 500 million. Oh well. I must think about what I am going to do for the next year. GenCon, my friend's daughter's wedding are two things that I am looking forward to. I am looking at the three National Parks up in Washington state as well. We are looking for our next project house too. So much to do... *
This little sculpture is of my littlest brother Dewayne. His art teacher in college did this many a year ago. *

The previous days were beautiful, filled with sun and cool winds. Sorry I was busy the last week or so. We were getting the house cleaned up. Anyany, what are we to speak about on this day? Something nice and easy. Yestereve, I was walking home and saw a tree that was in full bloom. I think it is a cherry tree with white leaves. Now I could be wrong. It was in full spring time bloom. I guess the season is here after the cold and wet. New changes, fresh possibilities. What is this year going to bring... #brokenadventurer #2018 #spring #springtime #newpossibilities #fresh #cherry #cherryblossom

It is day 84 my fellow adventurers, with the sun out on this cloudy day. It appears to be a nice day but seeing as how it is not yet even noon, it can be hard to say. I just now have got a bad feeling. Hopefully, it will soon pass. Anyhoi, I know that yesterday I dumped something rather heavy on you all. ... It is day 84 my fellow adventurers, with the sun out on this cloudy day. It appears to be a nice day but seeing as how it is not yet even noon, it can be hard to say. I just now have got a bad feeling. Hopefully, it will soon pass. Anyhoi, I know that yesterday I dumped something rather heavy on you all. Being homeless and/or in a bind so much that one must beg, can be a heavy pill to swallow. I cannot help but to wonder how and why it must be? How in a country that is supposed to be so advanced as the United States, that such problems exist? Now I am a big proponent of capitalism. It has driven us to make innovations over the last two-hundred years, but when does capitalism outweigh our obligation to our fellow man? As I get older, I start to think about these things, but I wish I had started to think about these problems when I was younger. I think I would've had a better understanding of these problems and a better hold on having to fix them.

A couple of days ago, I watched this cloud moving to the north at a fast clip, just floating along without a care in the world. Ahh, to be like a cloud...

I could feel the dampness creeping heavily down on my shoulders, the cold rain having soaked its way through my jacket.

I could feel the dampness creeping heavily down on my shoulders, the cold rain having soaked its way through my jacket. Even now, it left me chill as it sat between my shoulder blades like an icy wraith whispering dank and foreboding secrets to me. It is a cold and rainy day my fellow adventurers on this 83rd day of the year. I hope you are all warm and safe. Anyway, it saddens me to find people on the streets on days such as today. The lost and disenfranchised people that society seems to want to forget. When you walk as much as I do they are more prevalent. When you are in a small town their numbers seem even more magnified, as one could find them along the the major routes. It seems hard especially in the cold winter months that invites rain. I remember in Taiwan some thirty years ago I took an underground crosswalk and a man was toting his disabled son in a wheelbarrow. His pate freshly shorn showing a massive crater in his head as his head rolled to the side, eyes wide but vacant. Not three meters away, a Buddhist monk was collecting alms. Who do you give your help to in a situation such as this? Help the man who is blatantly using his son, or give it to the monk? Who do you give your help to when you see signs
of people who need help. Veterans who have fallen on hard times, an elderly couple who needs help. How many people need actual help, how many people prey on the sympathies of others. What do you do? *

It is quite chill as evident from the gardening I had to do today. My hands where dirty, mudcaked, icy mess. I kinda liked getting the dirt between my fingers, of course it would have been better if it were warmer. Anywhat, how are ya'll doing on this cold and wet day? Myself, well I am feeling better today than yestereve. Earlier today when I dropped off my Ebay stuff I took the long way home along the beach. There I saw the clouds gathering like an angry crowd. Hmmm. Well shoot.
I must get along here. Have fun now and see ya tomorrow.
