The Dawn of a new day

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Just as the Sun wakes up each and every day and shines it’s light upon us all, we to wake up, to once again walk our paths throughout this journey of life. Sometimes the Sun might be engulfed in the clouds and not be as bright, but it does turn the night sky into daylight, so we can see clearly of our direction on our path. We to as we wake up, are within the clouds of our judgments, sometimes these judgments over whelm us and control who we truly are, through these clouds we then never truly wake up, as we simply wander along our path without truly walking with confidence. We are kind of like the Sun, as we both have clouds circling around us, the clouds around the Sun may look puffy like you can bounce upon them, but the really dark ones are full Evil as they wreak havoc down on us and never let the Sun shine to it’s full potential. The clouds within our judgments are very similar as they wreak havoc on each of us with their Evil and if we let them, will control who we truly are. These clouds within our judgments are very dark, so we can not see properly of what we are doing, or see the direction of where we are going, just like the Weatherman on TV gives us the forecast for the weather above us and the dark Evil clouds in the sky above, so we can prepare for what ever Evil gets dropped down on us, we can fix the clouds within our judgments, if we totally focus on what is the real issue, so we can be prepared for the Evil with our inner strength, then with confidence overcome these clouds and continue moving forward along our path of this journey through life.

The clouds in the sky we look up to, just like we look up to the Sun everyday. Sometimes there are no clouds with the Sun shining to its full potential, but when the clouds appear then they block the Sun, leaving it not so bright, with big blocks of shade all around us. When we are surrounded by the clouds of our judgments we to become blocked, from truly blossoming into our full potential, we also walk our paths in the shade of these clouds, which then has our self doubt get involved along our paths, with this self doubt and the shade of the clouds, we never really see the direction we are going, let alone trying to fix any issues that may be trying to control who we are, we also never see any of the warning signs that may be there for us to stop and take stock of where we are, or who we have become.

The Sun goes around us all the time along it’s orbit in Space, just as we walk our paths through this journey of life. The Sun also has its obstacles to get around, just as we do along our paths, but as the Sun shines at its brightest down upon us, shows us that the Sun has worked through the obstacles so it can continue with confidence on its orbit. Just as we have to with confidence, brush away these clouds of our judgments, so we can continue to move forward along our paths with strength, while we stay focused on who we truly are,  then fix what we need to fix, so we then can have a clear head, like the deep blue sky with the Sun and no clouds. When we stay true to who we are, we than can see clearly of all that is around us, we can see clearly of all the obstacles that we need to get around, so we can walk our paths of this journey through life peacefully and in happiness, everyday for as long as we are around walking this journey.

 

” The dawn of a new day is the wake up of the sun and the wake up of ourselves to continue walking this journey”

” The dark clouds are full of evil that bring havoc to us, the clear blue sky will give us a big smile with plenty of happiness”

” To see clearly without the clouds we need to truly know of who we are and see the warning signs before the issues bring us into someone we truly are not”

‘ the sun revolves around us along its orbit, just as we walk our paths through this journey of life”

 

The days journey on the water

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

As I grew up I always paddled a Canoe, but this time I had a chance to paddle a Kayak and let me say it was more fun than I ever imagined. I paddled all over this pond on this day, going in and out of all the inlets, exploring all that I could within the daylight of this day, watching all the Bald Eagles fly over head and a couple Herring also flew over head. a small flock of Canada Geese swimming along with no worries slowing them down, taking pictures of my days journey, documenting all that I explored, Then each little Island that I came to, I would pull up to the shore of the Island and get out of the Kayak to walk around and enjoy the peace and serenity of the Island. Now as low as I was to the water, the views that I saw were every bit as good as if I was in a bigger boat, that had a motor and moved through the water faster.

The one thing that this Kayak was better than a bigger boat was, the negotiating of the stumps as I got closer to the shores at every stop. This pond has a river that travels through it and the pond became what it is, by the Hydro plant that dammed and flooded the area for the use of creating electric from the water of the pond. All these stumps and logs that washed up on the shores of the pond, were so petrified from the water, that they were smoother than any man could do with a sander or a planer, it was like the drift wood you find as you walk along any beach that you may walk. Walking along the shores of any beach, has a beauty of its own, but to journey through the pond paddling a Kayak along your journey, now this is what true exploring is all about.

The point of the Kayak was pointing in the direction I was going, making it easy to navigate my way through the water, with my arms and shoulders doing all the work, in order to move from place to place. To some it may seem like to much work to paddle a Kayak, but it really wasn’t as it was more fun exploring, as the work didn’t seem like work at all. True a bigger boat with a motor would of had me move through the water faster to explore more, but time I had plenty of as I was having more fun getting to the next destination within the pond and exploring everything on my way through the pond.

The Native Americans used Canoe’s to navigate through the water and fish for their meals, they had no Kayaks back then, but if they did have Kayaks? They to would of had much more fun as I did, negotiating through the water of the pond. Okay maybe they wouldn’t of been able to carry much supplies, as the Kayak had little room to work with, but with the Kayak being lighter, they would of negotiated the water a bit faster from place to place. I can see certain members of the Tribe paddling through the water in a Kayak, as they shouted to the others on land ” Tatanka”, which in their tongue means ” buffalo”, as they warned them of their chosen animal, which for them was Spiritual Inspiration, food, clothing and shelter.

The Kayak was a great idea to negotiate the pond and all its inlets, while moving around all the stumps near the shores of the inlets. Then as you got into the narrow parts where it turned into the river with some fast running rapids, now your talking even more fun until you have to turn around and go back up the rapids, which was a bit more work. None the less the Kayak was a great toy to have while exploring and having fun and enjoying the great scenery along your journey on the water, then the plus was watching the great Bald Eagles fly over head.

 

” The Native Americans might of had Canoes, but for me the Kayak was so much fun”

” The difference between the Canoe and the Kayak is space, as you can carry more with a Canoe”

Tatanka is the Indian word for Buffalo, they used this animal for spiritual inspiration, food clothes and shelter”

” The Bald Eagle may be a protected bird and the symbol of America, but this bird is awesome to watch float through the sky with the greatest of ease”

” The Eagle and the Bear may be the best Fisherman of all the Species, as they just scoop their claws in the water and out pops their daily meal and they make it look so easy”

 

The glitter of the morning Sun

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Within this fast paced Society we all live, we really don’t take the time to see everything of beauty that is around us. We will notice all the superficial beauty before we actually notice the true beauty around us, only because we have become so fake within this Society, we totally have lost sight of what is real and what is not, leaving us within a Society of Fiction, with no true facts to back up the true beauty around us.

This picture has so much true beauty within it, most within this Society would simply just pass by and not even think of stopping for a picture. The glitter of the Sun on to the waves of the water, with the rays of the light bouncing in and out of your eyes. The waves splashing onto the shore and then retreating back into the Lake for which they came, not only is it soothing to watch the waves hit the shore, but the sound they make, will put you into a trance, that will relax you into a welcome nap. Looking into the Horizon and seeing a mix of darkness and light in one sight, both the darkness and the light together with no issues, unlike within this Society and we all feeling threatened, simply because we are a different color than one another? Seeing the sky full of clouds that are all different to each of them  and when we look deeply into what we see, then the shapes of the clouds will then appear as actual things like, a person, an animal, or whatever we may see within them.

The Sun peeks through the holes of the morning sky, leaving us with a radiant and bright scene, as we look out into the lake before we have our morning coffee. When we slow down and truly look at what is around us, then we can actually see what we are really looking at. When we actually take the time out of our day, to notice all that we are missing daily, just maybe we all can learn to coexist like the Sun and the clouds, or maybe the darkness and the light like this picture shows us here.  We all walk a path through this journey of life, when we learn to coexist with each other, then the journey will be full of peace and happiness, but if we do nothing but attack one another, or label one another, than this journey becomes bitter full of darkness at all the turns throughout our paths.

 

” The glitter of the morning sun shines its beauty upon all that is below it”

” the shapes and sizes of the clouds, shows that there is diversity in not just we as Humans, but all that we see around us”

” The soothing sounds of the waves hitting the shore, will soothe you into the point of relaxation and wanting to take a nap”

 

The Thin Ice of Political Correction

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

We within this Society with the Political Correction of today have become so weak, that we are not only afraid to say what we truly mean to each other, but we all have become someone for which we truly are not. we pussy foot around all the real issues, just to stab each other in the back and we have been doing this so long, that we really don’t think there is anything wrong with it. Just look at the ones in Public office that we vote for, they say what we want to hear, then do the complete opposite when they get into office, now we have someone like Donald Trump running for President and he speaks his mind, as he don’t believe in Political Correction, so we then think he is wrong and a nut case, simply because we have become so weak, that we don’t want to hear the actual truth and find out just how screwed we are within this Society.

Political Correction goes against everything that built this Country into the power house it was, now because of it, this Country has weakened greatly and if we stay this course, America will change greatly, to which we true Americans will not like the change and the road that we are currently on. This Political Correct road we are on now, has us all afraid to hear the real truth and pull back from walking our path through this journey of life, with strength and confidence, to be better as we move forward.

Right no within this Country, our Fore Fathers that made this Country great with their hard work, are turning over in their Graves, with the way we have latched onto this Political Correction. The movement that Donald Trump started with bringing out the real truth, has become even stronger, as he is not only speaking the truth, but he is saying what a lot of us want to say, only we are afraid to say it, because of this Political Correction. The only problem with Donald Trump and the way he speaks the truth is, he is a bit rough around the edges and we really don’t know just how to handle it, simply because we are weakened by this Political Correct Society for which we live.

Change comes to all of us as we walk our paths through this journey of life, the problem lies with each of us as we, don’t really handle change to well, sometimes we tend to take the easy way, only because we have become too lazy to put the work in and let true change take it’s course, so we can be better and stronger moving forward. The biggest problem with this Political Correction is each one of us within this Society, as we all have become so lazy to put the work in, that we have become weak and are afraid of any truth, whether good or bad. instead of Political Correction, let’s get back to the days of constructive Criticism, which will make us stronger moving forward, Constructive Criticism is a way for us to handle the truth and help us accept change better whether good or bad.

constructive Criticism is the best way for us in handling any truth of anything, plus it keeps our true feelings and emotions alive and in the for front of who we truly are. With Political Correction we become fake and hide our true feelings and emotions, leaving us with zero empathy of not only ourselves, but zero empathy for each other, as we can see with the groups like ISIS we see today. With this Political correction we have lost totally of just how our self esteem truly works, because with no self esteem, we then have no Hope and Faith of who we truly are. Hope and Faith go together, with no hope there will never be Faith, just like with no Faith there will never be any Hope for any of us, Jesus taught us all this when he came and walked his journey with us, just that we within this Society are so far removed from those days, we forget and have no Faith in Jesus himself. When we have complete Faith in Jesus, not only will we have complete in ourselves, we will have complete Faith in each other, leaving us with plenty of hope, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” Hope and Faith go together like peanut butter and jelly, without either we will never be true to our selves or one another”

” Political Correction has not only made us all weak, it has totally turned us against each other”

” Constructive Criticism is a way for us to accept the truth better, making us all stronger moving forward”

” The thin ice of Political Correction has us all walking on egg shells around one another”

 

The Perfect slice……..

The perfect camp site where the only way to get to it is, drive a boat there loaded with your camping gear. I can’t say where it is, only because I don’t want to give away this hidden gem. You want peace and serenity? you will have plenty of it here, great place to unwind from the daily grind we all go through on our paths of our journey through life. Just sit and relax, while you breathe in the air which is the cleanest air you will ever breathe anywhere. The beauty of the Pines around you, while you set your tent on the carpet of the pine needles so soft that you will fall asleep as soon as you lay down. Set up your kitchen and dining area by the campfire at the waters edge, then enjoy breakfast with the sunrise and dinner by the sunset, it really doesn’t get any better than this. During the day go for walks and truly explore what is around you and have fun learning as you go. This is a campsite that truly is more beautiful than you can ever imagine, i have camped in a lot of places, even at 13,000 feet on a mountain in the Colorado Rockies, but this site? Now your talking a beauty of it’s own.

The Pine tree in the middle looked like it was just struck by lightening, judged by the freshness of the tree and the way it split down toward the bottom of the trunk,    thank God I wasn’t around when the lightening struck, but when your camping deep within the woods around a lake as this, it is wise advice to always keep an eye to the sky and always be prepared for anything, including the presence of a Bear or two? True Camper’s who like the real primitive type of camping, aren’t wavered by these kind of threats, but they are well prepared for whatever situation that may cross their paths. For some their idea of camping is backing the trailer into a site and plugging into the electric and connecting the water hose for a flushing toilet? To me that is not camping, that is parking with all the comforts of home, true camping is to get out of your comfort zone and explore all that is around you, where you make your own enjoyment or simply just relax and clear your mind of all the crap within it, from the daily grind of this journey of life.

Camping is a sort of therapy, where it soothes your sole, clears the mind, so you can get back to truly being yourself, which is why the location of the site is the, or should be the number one priority. These big Public KOA campsites are okay, but your not going to get the same peace and serenity, like the campsite in the picture, the bigger campsites have daily activities laid out for you, but the whole idea behind real primitive camping is too escape the chains of our everyday life and be free, to explore, forget what time it is and just go with the flow, then learn to see the location of the sun in the sky and determine what time of day it is. We all walk a path through this journey of life and camping is a way to, clear our heads of all the crap in our daily lives, soothe the soul to truly relax, recharge our batteries, so we can get back to being who we truly are, instead of this fake portrayal of ourselves and pretending to be someone we are not.

 

” Camping isn’t just a way to relax or clear your head, it was a way of life at the beginning of Mankind”

” The Native Indians would camp everyday as they slept in their Tee Pee’s every night and made a camp fire for their Tribal rituals”

” The beauty of camping is to enjoy all there is around you”

” Camping for some is to back up the trailer and plug in the cord for their television and appliances, true camping is to unwind and get away from all the distractions”

 

Main streets and back roads

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

” We all walk a path through this journey of life, we also drive on the the streets to get to our destination better”

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

” These roads were once very vibrant and full of action, now we have forgotten our way to get to these roads as we have left them to isolation”

 

There is nothing we don’t look at that is subject to change, it also includes we the People that walk a path through this journey of life. These roads over time have gone through many changes, whether it’s erosion from the weather, or whether it is from we the people and how we travel these roads. None the less whether the road is dirt, or the road is paved, they all still have all kinds of living things all around them.

While driving the paved road in the first picture, before you even get to the the lake you see, first you will pass by a lot of old school Americana, like Farm land that still actually produces product and then shared throughout, for all of our tables. Passing by a Country store and seeing what it actually was like going to market, instead of shopping in a big chain Supermarket, seeing all the big Farm houses that housed a big family, as they worked hard even before they have had their morning breakfast, as back then the Cattle, Chickens and Pigs all got fed first before any of the family got fed. Also back then you did your chores before you even thought about having fun and if your school work wasn’t done well…. then forget about any fun for a while, as you will be busy bringing those grades back up. It was a whole different World back then, a time when you actually worked for your keep and if you didn’t have fun doing it, then Oh well there was no pity for you as you were passed by and those around you moved on better and stronger along their journey. I understand in today’s World we want Equality? we are all equal in the eyes of God, no matter your background or where you are from, but when you want the successful ones to share and pay more, so you can feel equal, without actually working hard for your equality, that is not equality, that is being a Free loader and sponging off others, so you can become lazy and expect everything given to you. Those ones that are successful worked very hard to be that way and they have the right to enjoy the fruits of their labor, without Freddy the Free Loader sponging off their hard work.

The Lake in the picture is of Moose head lake in the beautiful state of Maine, this lake is so big that when you are out in the middle aboard a boat, it is like being out in the Ocean, especially when it storms and the waves become choppy with white caps. Moose head lake is always alive and vibrant, not just with all the People that visit and camp along the lake, but the Wild life is full of all different kinds of species. In order to see all the true beauty that this lake holds you have to explore and part of that exploring is driving these dirt roads like the one in the picture. There are many dirt roads and some not even being on a map, which makes for a fun exploration. Throughout this journey of life there are many things to explore, but when you lay stagnate and become lazy, then the exploration seems to be non existent. When you drive through any road or street without truly seeing all that is around you, you will never see any true beauty around you, which leads to a life of bitterness and Anger. Life is too short as we walk our paths along this journey through life, to not explore and learn of everything around you.

 

” The main streets and back roads are a lot more than something we drive on, they are part of America’s history and how our Nation grew strong”

” You want change? Our main streets and back roads  have endured so much change, we have forgotten just how much”

 

 

Gaze into the rings of the Sunset

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

The days bright sun falls from the sky at the end of the day in need of some rest,

Timing is everything when you see the sunset bring the the rings around it as it falls,

The glitter of the sun on the water reflects its beauty as it goes to bed for the night sky,

If you can catch the Sunset at the right time, you can also see  the many colors it brings,

But the timing of the colors are one in a million shot which keeps you intrigued as you watch,

The many parts of our journey has much beauty with the Sunset being one of the best,

We may be drawn to the beauty of the Sunset as it never calls,

The Sun rises in the morning with a bright hello and sets with a shy bye,

We walk a path through this journey of life with beauty everywhere on everything,

Just as the sun brings and ending and a beginning, an Eagle soars to it’s eggs to help them hatch,

 

 

The Sun sets making way to the stars and the Moon of the night sky,

The night sky when clear is as beautiful to see as the morning and evening Sun,

The night sky at the right time can be lit up with the lights of other planets,

Although always be watching for the big and the little dipper,

When the orbit is right you can also see the Space Station go flying by,

The Space Station has the Astronauts aboard collecting data for us below,

There is a lot of action in the night sky, only to be seen in complete darkness,

The Sun may look very cool as we watch it, but it is hot enough for us to fry,

We get away from the city lights to see the night sky as our journey becomes fun,

The night sky is full of interesting things including and occasional Comet,

Just as the Sun sets on the water so does the fish in the water like Flipper,

Gaze into the rings of the Sunset and see it sparkle on top of the water,

The journey of life is full of much beauty, you just have to truly look deeply into what you see, to truly see all of it’s beauty.

 

” The Sunset is an Astronomers delight, as they zoom in with the most powerful of telescopes”

” You may not see all the colors of the Sun when setting, simply because timing is everything as you sit and watch and don’t blink”

” You gaze into the sky as the Sun sets, just like you gaze into the night sky, to see the maze of stars within it”
