It rained all night...and it rained all morning. It was great weather...for a duck! I think I'm going to start Quacking (you know...cracking) from being stuck indoors!
 
After lunch I decided to take a drive...and actually have some lunch. Then I went exploring. The skies had started to clear up. I could see some blue. I drove this a way...and then I drove...that a way! And then I zigged...and then I zagged! I went up....and then I went down! That's what the roads are like in the Poconos. I could repeat that if you like? I drove this a way...and then I drove...that a way! And then I zigged...and then I zagged! I went up....and then I went down! It would have been awesome if I had a convertible sports car...or at least...my motorcycle! But no....I had to settle for my big...clunky...pick-up truck.  Most of the leaves have fallen by now. I would have gone sauntering through them, but with all the rain I would have needed some hip waders. Sorry...no pictures. I left the camera in the trailer. Hey! It was raining when I left. They are promising beautiful blue skies tomorrow. I do believe I will stick around for another day.
 
I've started having doubts about this Journey. Maybe I should have stayed home. Am I just dreaming? Is all this mumble jumble Spiritual stuff all a bunch of hog wash? Is a Spiritual Journey a waste of time? Maybe we just toil through life to end up 6 feet under and have the maggots eat us up (maybe I should be a little more delicate)...and have our bodies decompose to ash...then the maggots eat us. Don't get me wrong, I've gotten over the "dark days of Mordor". I'm having lots of fun seeing stuff and meeting people. I do miss my kids (I have to say that-just kidding kids) and should be around for them (it's my step-daughter's 21st birthday today-Happy Birthday Rhéline!),  but...travelling is addictive. The more you see, the more you want to see. I read one of the other travel blogs on this website. Someone who travelled the world, over a year. A month after their return they wrote their epilogue. People kept on asking him/her if they had gotten the travel bug out of their system. And their response..."The bug bit harder and they're itching to get going again!"
 
So...No...my doubts didn't last long. The Spiritual Journey "bug" has bitten me hard and I'm in it for the long haul. How can I not be enjoying myself. I constantly have music on in my truck and trailer. I sing, I dance, I smile, I laugh....all day long (People still forward their jokes to me). I get to read all these amazing books. On all kinds of topics. I get to tell all of you my thoughts and feelings. I take these amazing photographs. I'm writing to celebrities and sports figures and published authors asking for their opinions on important stuff...Like the Meaning of Life! Whether I'll ever get an answer is a different story...but I am doing it! My website is getting designed. Logos are designed. I'M PUMPED! I should be eating supper now. But I start writing and I can't stop. Isn't that what life is all about? Being Creative? Being Passionate?
 
...and yes I am making supper. I think the first "real" supper in a long time. Amazing frying pan chicken with cilantro, garlic salt and brown sugar and a baked potato. Yum! Yum! I'm a great cook...because I am Perfect!
 
"What we know we know.
What we know we don't know.
What we don't know we don't know.
 
Given that we are only aware of 2,000 Bits of information out
of the 400 Billion Bits of information we are processing per second...
 
When we argue against new knowledge...
how much of our "awareness" is arguing?
 
How can we know everything about
all the things we don't know?"
