What’s more important, the drama or the real priorities?

The rural back roads and civilization of America, these people know how to walk their paths of this journey, simply because they are so far removed from the big cities, but yet they still survive just as strong. These places have considerably less than the big cities, but the the corporate giants still want them to pay the same or even more than the big cities? Our so called Leaders within the walls of Washington DC are so corrupt, that they clearly can not see through the clouds of their own judgments and their daily actions prove just that. With the next Presidential election right around the corner in 2020, with all these so called candidates lining up like the flies gather around around a piece of………….. Well you know the rest. All these so called candidates are really proving is, that they really do not take the office of President of these United States that seriously, they think it is a celebrity contest, which does nothing but rob the highest office on the land, of all it’s dignity and respect.

The Democrats want nothing but to strip our seated President of his duties, simply because he is not one of their guys? I have a news flash for all you Democrats out there, President Trump has already done more in his short time, than President Obama did in eight, plus the eight of George Bush also, so put that in your pipe and smoke it and let the real reality sink into that pea brain of yours. Now that the so called investigation is over, with nothing on our seated President, the Democrats can’t let it go, so now they are pushing to see our President’s tax returns? I have another news flash for all you Democrats, our President came into office a Billionaire, so let’s see all the tax returns of all elected officials, who came into their office with nothing and are now multi millionaires. These Democrats are so fixated on the fact of getting at our President, that simply they can not do their jobs correctly, they think they are coming up with the next best thing, like the so called ” new green deal”? That they are doing nothing on the real issues of this country, now I have yet another news flash, even through all the crap within the walls of Washington DC, our President is getting the job done and leaving all you haters in his wake. With these news flashes of mine, I have come up with more reality news flashes than all the media in the last year.

We all within this Society have become so consumed with all this hatred and ugliness, we have all lost our way on our paths of this journey, we are so clouded within our own heads, that all our judgments are made from fiction, instead of making a true judgment on facts, so we all can move forward more clearly, without guessing on the direction we should be going. It all starts at the top and trickles down to the rest of us, you would think that those within the walls of Washington DC would see all the progress our President is making and instead of hating on him, quite simply join him, so America can be better and stronger moving forward, without going backwards and not looking at where we are going.

All these so called candidates for the next Presidential election, are all so far left that they have become Socialists and all we have to do is look in the past and present to see what Socialism does, the old Russia or the USSR which stands for United Soviet Socialist Republic, will show you just how Socialism works, or just look at today in Venezuela with their struggles, not too mention the country of Cuba, Socialism never works and any candidate that says it does, wants to rob you of your hard earned money, so he can put it in his pocket, to live a plush exotic lifestyle, while you struggle with, rubbing together two nickels trying to make a dime.

The Media today are no more a Journalist than you and I, spinning around the spoken word, so you can continue an agenda, simply does not make you a Journalist, it only makes you a ” Drama Queen”. These people get paid good money to keep the drama flowing around us, without giving any mention to real facts within this Society, if our President comes out and speaks nothing but good things, the media will twist around his words and make them all nothing but bad, so they can keep their agenda of attacking a seated President and bringing more drama to you and I. You see how the media works? These are the real facts and facts are something the media knows nothing about. Real Writer’s use their imagination, while being a Writer in the media today has no imagination, all they do is spill words on a page, then look for their paycheck at the end of the week. I do not know about you, but if I do not feel good about my daily work, I then try to make it better the next day, so when I receive my pay, I have a great feeling of accomplishment that I earned it and not a feeling of robbing Peter to pay Paul.

” Just the facts please, so we all can be better informed to walk this journey as best we can”

” Drama does nothing but create more ugliness around us, time to get back to reality for the better of us all”

” A news flash should be of true fact, not about bringing more drama to all those around us”

” A presidential election should be of respect and dignity, not about attacking the one you are running against”

” The office of the President of the United States is the most powerful office on the land, it shouldn’t be treated as an office within the Barnum and Bailey’s Circus”

Small town America

a street with cars parked on the side of a building: The population of Hamilton, Mont., is 4,728, up more than 10 percent since 2010. Retail outlets fill Main Street, which is bracketed by mountain views.

A small vibrant town within the beautiful skyline of Montana, these type of towns are the forgotten towns here in America, as with most and from all the hype built up about the big cities like New York, these small towns are the back bone of America, as they have been thriving for many years and will continue to thrive in the future of America.

There is so much nostalgia within these small towns, they are a great place to visit, to truly see how they have become to thrive for so long. The beauty of the mountains all around you just add even more ambiance to the feel of the small town. Within this picture you see no big chains, as the smaller one person ownership stores cover the sidewalks of the street, this is what makes these type of towns so special, simply because the big corporations and the big chain stores and restaurants, haven’t had a chance to come in and ruin all the true beauty of this great town.

Just like in the movie First Blood starring Sly Stallone, when he walked down the main street of town with the mountains all around him, only difference here is, this is reality and truly as beautiful as it gets. We all can go visit places like this and walk the sidewalks of main street, experience the ambiance and the special bond of all the towns people. Definitely as you walk down these streets you will notice a huge difference, in the temperament of the people, compared to like………….. The streets of New York city.

Back in the days of when small towns like this was the norm, America was truly great and we all respected each other, we all watched out for one another, we all helped one another, now within this society we are so far removed from one another, that we don’t know who is around us anymore. You go to your job and it’s every man for himself as others think nothing of back stabbing you, so they can get ahead of you, drive down the street and everybody speeds past you just to get ahead then hit the breaks to slow down. Neighbors………… I remember when they all where close friends and all looked out for each other, now you don’t even talk to the ones next door, let alone know them.

Yes these small towns still exist, just that they are far and few between, as in today’s world it is all about the corporation, as these corporations have complete control of us all, unlike the days of yesteryear. Now unlike in a corporation, which is controlled by a board of directors, the businesses in this small town and other towns like it, are owned by an Individual, which makes them a lot easier to walk up to, the ones who make up a board of directors, all they want is for you to make them money, for as little money that they give you for a days work, this is where the miscommunication of this society starts, plus the fact that our so called leaders, within the walls of Washington DC, have their hands out for the kick backs and then vote any way that the corporations want them, which now we the little guy are the ones who totally lose out. Even a CEO of a corporation is controlled by the board of directors and if he doesn’t run the corporation the way they want, well then…………… He is replaced for someone that will.

I prefer small town America over the corporate world America that it has become, a simple place in a simple life, true you still had to work hard moving forward within the small towns, but at least you could still benefit from the hard work, as now within the corporations, the only ones who benefit are the board of director’s, the rest of us are left on the outside looking in. The sad reality of the society for which we live, but it is never too late to change this reality for the better of us all, yes it may be hard to fight against the corporations, as they have all the power right now, but the fight will be worth it, with a huge benefit to us all being, we all can get back to truly knowing one another again, become one once again, as we come together in unity, to once again help each other and bond with each other, without attacking each other, with every turn we take, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” The CEO is really not the Boss, it is the board of directors with all the power today”

” Small town America so beautiful and so much more relaxing, over the corporate world of today”

” Basically we all work for free, while the corporations make all the cash”

” Time for us all to work together without attacking one another anymore”

Veterans Day

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

” It doesn’t take a special breed to fight the good fight for their country, just someone deeply in touch with their true feelings and emotions, to not only feel the love of their country, but the love for all those for who they fight for”

*** BowlingChef***

 

To all the Brave men and woman from the past, present and future, who not only fight the good fight, but do so out of love for their country and all those within the country as well. We all have the qualities to serve our country, but it is only a few that actually take the plunge to fight the good fight. We all have the traits to be a hero, but those who fight the good fight and help their fellow soldier out of a jam without thinking, are the true Hero’s. These Individuals don’t look for the fan fare, they don’t expect anything in return, they just go about it as their job, so we all can live freely with happiness throughout this country of America. The thing is, when they come back home from everything they have seen while fighting the good fight, they quickly become lost in the shuffle and struggle to try to get back to normal among us, instead of us reaching out to them, without thinking like they did while fighting the good fight, we then forget of them and their sacrifice, as we get so wrapped up in just keeping up and moving forward. Then those within our elected officials, when there needs to be cuts, will cut their health benefits when they need it most, which then has them out in the cold all around us. The Veterans health care is in need of a major over haul and part of that is, us reaching out to them without thinking, as they did when they were fighting the good fight.

We all sacrifice everyday, but when a Veteran sacrifices it quickly becomes the ultimate sacrifice. We normal Citizens here in America, have no clue of what our Veterans really had to go through while fighting the good fight, especially wars like world war 2 or Korea, never mind the political war of Vietnam? When they were laying in the trenches and their buddy gets shot right next to them, or a grenade goes off with their limbs blowing to the sky, this does damage to you and when you come home, even though you are fortunate enough to be all there on the outside, you really are not all there, as your mind then reaks havoc inside you and when others around you just let you be without reaching out, now you and your mind struggle just to be as normal as the rest of us throughout this journey of life.

A Veteran may have volunteered to put themselves in harms way, but they did not volunteer to be forgotten when they return home to the country they fought the good fight for, the job to take care of our great veterans belongs to you and I, they sacrificed for us and in a lot of cases, they paid the ultimate sacrifice, just so you and I can be free to do what we want when we want and enjoy every square inch of this great country for which we live. We all walk a path through this journey of life, some are the chosen ones that blaze that path for us, but within this broken society of today, we take so much for granted, that we forget to thank these great Hero’s known as our Veterans, even though they don’t see themselves as Hero’s, they truly are…….. So we all can walk this journey in the peace and happiness, that we all so need in a healthy way.

 

” A big THANK YOU to all our Veterans in this country of America, past, present and future, for giving the good fight so we here can be free to do as we do, at all we do”

” A true hero will never see himself as a hero, to them it is just a job for which they signed up to do”

” We take so much for granted today, that we totally forget those who made it possible for each of us to walk in  peace, while being free to do as we do”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Many Roads throughout our Journey

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

” There are many roads for us to travel through this journey of life, each of the roads are very different in their Characteristics”

 

We all walk a path through this journey of life, with these paths comes many roads and cross roads, for us to make a choice in which direction to go. Before we come to any road, we all start this journey very much in the same way and no one is different than the other. We are born and raised from two loving Individuals, that take their love and make the most precious thing on this planet……… A child. Somewhere along this journey and the choices of the roads we follow, we have lost what being a good parent is, we have lost our way along this journey and we make big choices without thoroughly thinking the choice through, before we take the action of that choice.

We as Humans are no different than any other species on this planet, as two loving Individuals form a child out of their love of one another, this is all part of the cycle of life and just what God wanted when he created all that walk and breathe on this planet of Earth. With this Child comes great responsibility on the part of these Parents and to make the choice of being a parent, is one of the biggest choices any of us will ever make, along the roads of this journey of life.

Now within this Society we all live, we can clearly see that, there have been some choices made without thinking through of the actions of the choice, as some are having children and then neglecting them without taking their responsibility more seriously. Some are having children with many partners instead of having just one that will share the responsibility and help raise the child. God created a man and a woman to become more than friends, he wanted them to be together for eternity, so they then can develop a deep love of one another and out of this love, they then can have a child to raise and teach, so the child can one day have the same responsibility themselves. When you raise a child properly, you need both the characteristics of the man and the woman to raise the child properly, just as the characteristics of the roads are different our characteristics are also  different then each other and when we bring them together in a good way, there is nothing but beauty and love that comes to each of us, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

Within this Society today we don’t take the time to truly look around as we travel down the roads of life, when we don’t take the time we need, we then make rash decisions at the cross roads, instead of thinking through our decisions of the choice in the road we select. just because one road is paved and the other is gravel or dirt, you can’t assume that the paved will be the road best traveled? sometimes there are many cracks in the pavement that we need to over come, which then detours us from our actual direction, with these detours we then become side tracked and lost along our way and as we try to find our way, we then lose totally of who we truly are. Life will always throw you a curve ball, it is how you see the ball, make the right choice to swing the bat, that will determine if you hit the ball out of the park or not. There is no road that is a bad road, it is just how we view the road and how we make the choice of the road, that determines our destiny as we walk our paths, along this journey of life and will also determine, how peaceful and happy we are, as we move forward within this journey.

 

” This journey of life throws us many curve balls, it is how we see the ball, make the right choice to swing the bat, that will determine how far we hit the ball”

” Having a child comes with a big responsibility, with the right choices this responsibility turns into great love and happiness throughout our journey”

” God created a man and a woman not for us to objectify each other, but to truly look at each other respectfully and to create a beautiful life with our true love of one another”

” Their are many roads in which to travel, some may be paved and some may be dirt, but they all have their own characteristics of each other”

 

The Wood Pecker’s Chronicle

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

I remember the cartoon called Woody the Wood Pecker, this guy on this Birch tree isn’t quite as colorful or loud as Woody was. Watching him peck into this tree, I can say one thing that, for a small bird he has one heck of a strong beak. While camping deep in the Wilderness, there were many different birds that I have seen, with the Eagle being the one most viewed daily. All these birds fly around so open and free, with no worries of anything as they fly around. Then there were the Loons and the Canada Geese swimming in the lake and moving about as free as the birds flying in the sky. Maybe if there is reincarnation? I would love to come back as a bird, more specific, the American Bald Eagle, because they soar among the thermal in the sky as free and with a worry free mind, plus as they fly they do it with the greatest of ease. The Eagle is a big bird with a big wing span and when he fishes in the lake, it is awesome to watch as he swoops down on it’s prey, then grabs it within its claws and fly’s away to the nest they call home. When the Eagle swoops down to grab the fish, they make it look so easy like maybe I to could just reach in and grab a fish? But as I try, I then find out it ain’t so easy.

Just as we walk our paths through this journey of life, they to being the Birds also have a path to follow along their journey through life. We share this planet of Earth with many other species, but some may think we own this planet? on the contrary, God created this planet for all to coincide with each other, to enjoy and travel their journey in peace and happiness, but we the Human species through Greed and Stupidity, have made all our journeys become painful and full of chaos. We have totally forgotten how to share anything with anybody anymore, all we want is me…..me……me…… all the time, with no respect or regard for anything around us. This was not God’s vision when he created all within this planet, but it is how we Humans have evolved through our own stupidity and the need for Greed. We have ruined all the Habitats of all the other species, with the building up of all the land around, then we wonder why we are now being visited by some of the wild creatures around us? It is not uncommon for a Bear or a Moose to run through our yards today, simply because we have torn down their homes, to build up our homes to sell and become more greedy. Now we look for cleaner energy like the wind mill farms, where the Government wants to put them up by the 100’s, but unless you take the land from the people, where then will you turn? cause if you turn to cutting down more tree’s to open up an area for these windmills, now your forcing the animal world out of their homes, to try to blend in somewhere else and where do you think that somewhere else is? Correct, right in our own back yards. The bottom line for all the corruption and greed we see today is, everybody has their hands out for the green paper, with no regard or respect for what is around them anymore.

With all this corruption, greed and stupidity around us today, I would love to be an Eagle right now, simply because they are a protected bird, being the symbol of our Country and with that said, they can fly freely to where ever they want to go, with no worries of where they are going, not too mention only the Bear is as good as a Fisherman as they. Ahh!!! the beauty of soaring the great blue yonder, seeing everything from up above and then shitting on all the corruption below and I would know where just to drop the little turd bombs, then laugh as I fly by…….then as I return to the nest that i would call home.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, just as all the other species around us. to stop all this corruption and have no regrets, we first have to start respecting all that is around us, then we have to eliminate the greediness that has engulfed us, so we then can walk our paths in peace and all our journey’s will be happy for all.

 

” The American Bald Eagle is a beautiful bird, that simply soars through the sky with the greatest of ease”

” Corruption, Greed and stupidity has engulfed us all, time to respect all that is around us, to end the ugliness that has engulfed us”

 

” We wouldn’t want anybody to force us out of our homes, why then do we do it to the other species”

” Woody the Wood Pecker in the cartoon was fiction, as the real Wood Pecker blends in to the environment and isn’t as flamboyant”

 

The true Righteous need no Fan fare

” Blessed indeed will you be because of their inability to repay you, for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the Righteous”

 

*****LK 14:14

 

 

Just as this branch has its many other branches and all these logs despite their state of repair, we to do not need the glory or the fame, to truly succeed along our paths through this journey of life. When Jesus came and walked his journey with us, he didn’t want all the fanfare, he wanted to walk among us as simple as he could, but yet through his actions and at his resurrection, was when we the people saw the repayment of his love toward us all.

We in this Society put so much pressure on ourselves, just to succeed in a way that we think succeeding is supposed to be, with all this pressure we then become sick in ways we don’t truly understand, to succeed is not about the fancy cars, the big house, the knowing of what we may think of being in the “in crowd”, or the knowing of what we think are people that are more successful than ourselves. “True success is within you yourself and within your heart”. Success doesn’t have to be about how you look towards others, it definitely doesn’t have any measurement or comparison to each other in any way shape or form, this is the part of our walking this journey, that does nothing but makes us all sick and forces us against each other, simply because we now become jealous of one another.

We are similar in a way like this branch, we come into this World pretty much the same, then we branch out (sort of speak) in many different ways, making success of one, very different than the success of another.  Then instead of looking for payment as we try to find our true selves, we will get plenty pay as we watch with pride, what our journey has been from a far. When we try to be successful in life, by reaching for the big house, the fancy cars etc….. All we are truly doing is, hurting ourselves and becoming sick from trying to hard and trying to measure our success on one another. Jesus went to many gatherings along his journey, he never wanted to sit with those who thought they were the “in crowd”, he only wanted to be seen with those that others thought of as non successful, he didn’t care what others thought of him, he only cared what he thought of himself, as his heart became full, with the love of himself toward one another.

We in this Society have become so engulfed with what we think success is, that we have totally lost the true meaning of success. The not knowing of true success has lead us into a world full of hatred of one another, with no sign of Empathy anywhere along our paths of this journey. True success is never seen among us, it is only felt deep within our core of our being, Jesus taught us this within his journey, but being so far removed from his journey, only proves how much we have forgotten from his journey. We all walk a path through this journey of life, to truly succeed  we have to feel it, while we feel the love of Jesus within our hearts, which is our guide that tells us, we are on the right track. When we feel nothing as we try to succeed with the fancy cars and the big house, only proves just how out of touch we have become, not just of ourselves, but with each other of this Society.

 

” True success is never seen among us, as it is only felt deep within our core”

” The fancy cars and the big houses are only material things that mean nothing toward our true success of life”

” Hiking to any summit of a mountain will show you what the feeling of true success is and will also show you that it takes time to achieve and truly feel the good of true success”

 

Why do they call it the Loon???

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

This bird known as the Loon, is also known as the Maine state bird. Not sure how it received the name of Loon ( have to research this), but the sound it makes is so soothing, as you sit lake side and relax watching the sunset  to the sound of the Loon.  The Loon is a quiet bird that goes about it’s business very quietly, it doesn’t bother anyone as it swims around the lake with no worries in the World. As good as the Loon swims above the water, it swims very well below also, you see him in this picture here and as you take the shot, he will duck under water and swim to the other side of the lake, like a fish beneath the water. The Loon and the Eagle as well as a few Herring, are what I saw most of as I camped for a week in northern Maine, mixed in with a Moose one morning at 4:00 am. I was woken one morning by some splashing outside my tent, but as I slowly opened the door, as to not alarm what was out there, I saw a Moose splashing water on himself/herself, wish I could of taken a picture, but didn’t want to startle the Moose with the flash, as it wasn’t light enough to take the shot without it. We all need to take a break every once in a while in a place where peace and serenity are everywhere, We all want to go to the exotic places where there are way to many others with the same idea, to me this is no way to totally relax, this could also be a big reason why there is way too much ugliness in our Society today? When most go south for the beaches and heat, I go north for cool and the mountains and around these mountains is where you find the peace and serenity, front and center all around you.

Like I said the Loon is a quiet bird that goes about his/her business and doesn’t bother anything around it, so why then the name of the Loon? I can think of a few of the species of the Humans that should have the name the Loon, simply because some are just a Lunatic, that will harm and hurt you, without thinking twice about it. We should all be like the Loon and enjoy everything that is around us, without trying to hurt others, in order to try to control everything around you.We all at one time or another have been a Victim, or we have Victimized someone else? It could be something simple like giving the finger as someone cut in front of you on the road, or maybe you got angry and punched someone in the face breaking their nose, or maybe even mentally like, not acknowledging someone, that just wants to be a friend? Either way you have been a creator of a Victim, or maybe you have been the Victim of this similar behavior?   Until we all treat each other with respect and dignity, this ugliness will never go away, we are the real Loons or lunatics here as we walk our paths of this journey through life, because the Maine state bird known as the Loon, is a peaceful bird that soothes you with it’s sounds as the sunsets on the lake.

This picture is so peaceful on so many levels, the calm water of the lake making the travel of the Loon easy across it’s journey, then the Loon just swimming along as peaceful as can be and unless you were looking out into the lake, you would never of saw him. This is what peace and serenity is all about, this is how to totally relax and wipe your mind clear of all the negative thoughts. As you sit in your chair lakeside and watch the sunset, listening to the soothing sound of the Loon, Then clearing your mind of all the ugliness, this is how to totally relax and as you relax, with all the pressures of everyday escaping your body, you will fall quickly asleep, leaving you with real sleep and not just closing your eyes, so you can function at work the next day. This could be the answer to all of us in this Society and for the why of, how this ugliness has engulfed us all. We simply don’t take the time to truly relax and to truly get the rest we need, in order to function properly, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” why call this beautiful bird the Loon, when it is nothing but peaceful and bothers nothing along its journey”

” To totally relax is something we all need to learn and take the time to truly do”

” Negativity breeds this ugliness around us, time we all do our part and let the negative thoughts go once and for all”

” Instead of the name of the Maine state bird being the Loon, maybe something more peaceful would of been more appropriate”

 

An Island of Dreams

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

We all dream of our own little piece of paradise and within this ugly Society of today, most would love to have this beauty and build a Log home smack in the middle. This Island is surrounded by a lot of natural beauty, no matter which direction you turn and look. It was nice to jump into the Kayak and go to these Islands and explore all they have to offer, but let me say that……..peace and serenity stands out more than anything.

Simply imagine yourself sitting on your Farmers porch which you built and attached to your log cabin, listening to the sounds of nature as you look out into the Lake before you. Then you see a Loon swim lazily by with no worry in the World, as the Loon goes by now you see an American Bald Eagle soar by overhead, but what you don’t realize is, they are both eyeing the same fish beneath the surface of the water. The Eagle so majestic and beautiful, soaring through the sky with the greatest of ease, then in one fell swoop he sweeps in for the fish, then fly’s away with the fish in his talons before the Loon has a chance to react, what a beautiful sight and you had a front row seat. The beauty never stops on your dream Island, as suddenly you hear twigs snapping to your right, Hmm!! What could it be? You slowly take baby steps in that direction to explore the noise, now your breathe not only goes silent, but the beauty you see takes your breathe completely away, it is a Moose  about 50 yards away, you freeze and sit very still, in order to not startle him, to make him feel welcome to your little paradise. Now you wonder just what other kinds of beauty still left for you to see, but your in no rush as eventually, all the beauty will become your norm for as long as you want it to.

Now that you seen a taste of the beauty around you, you can get back to work fixing up your cabin inside and gathering wood to chop, split and stack for the fire to cook and be warm in the chill of the night. Once you are set with the chores, time to grab the fishing pole, to catch the fish special for your dinner with time to relax and unwind. As you sit and relax, your mind starts to think about what tomorrow will bring? Maybe cultivate the soil around, so you then can grow some fresh vegetables, to go with your daily dinner. There is so much to do in order to set up your paradise, you never give it a second thought as the beauty around you, simply makes up for the work each and every day.

We see all the ugliness within our Society and after one month in your paradise, full of peace and serenity, it becomes very easy to forget there is any ugliness at all anywhere. We all walk a path through this journey of life, but if we don’t find our own space to unwind and relax, then this ugliness will forever consume every fiber within our bodies, leaving us without truly seeing any real beauty that may be around us.

 

” Paradise is different for each of us, which is why we have to find it before we go stir crazy”

” The Eagle soars with the greatest of ease as it is quiet like the Stealth Bomber.

” having a cabin in the middle of no where may be some work at times, but you never think of the work only see the beauty around you”

” Being one with Nature is much better than any therapy you may receive”

” When life gets you down, it is this paradise that brings you back up and ready for the next chapter”

 

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 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”
