Exploring the Human Condition: altered states of consciousness

Today is a very good day – a day for breaking free of old ways of thinking.

Today is a day for clear thinking and positive action.  I’m working on a new blog, and I hope that soon you will be enjoying it as much as I will.

In favor of moving ahead and doing what I love, I decided to buy a new digital camera.  Not an SLR yet, nothing fancy.  But it has a very high resolution and high pixels.  And although I love photography, I am not a professional.  My interests lie mostly in the written word.

My father took pictures of faces, up close and personal, in black and white.  I only wish I had this collection to share with you.  And although I will not be shooting in B&W, maybe some of his light will shine through all the same.

I hope when you feel blue, or need a connection with culture, you will check out the new blog.  I haven’t settled on a name yet, but I feel sure something will be coming along soon!

It has taken me about three months to change my life, at least in terms of eating.  For many years, in fact, I thought I understood very well what was healthy and what was not.  But alas, this journey took me down many roads of denial…  but finally…  I feel liberated.  The understanding of what it takes has finally taken shape.  I have new habits, new tools and new skills.

Videos and blogs about our food and where it comes from, about growing things to eat correctly and easily, these are the education we need in order to put gardening and growing our own food on the fast track.  This is just one area that I want to focus on, then perhaps another type of post for cooking and pantry ideas set in the kitchen.  All this will come pretty much “from scratch” as we say, so you’ll be able to follow along and hopefully, make suggestions!

As for the rest of the days…  let’s just leave all that flexible. Undoubtedly, I will devote some of my time to art, music, or even some of my own creations.  Who knows what subjects might come up.  And lastly, it’s just good to speak our minds sometimes, in a intentional way, so that maybe someone else will be moved to comment also.  It’s a good way to get on with the business of life.

It might not be all rosey all the time, as far as postings to the new blog. Sometimes it is better to get some clarity about a given subject, because it is pertinent to the times, or because there is something to be learned from sharing.  Also, on the flip side, I do not intend to encourage doomsday sayers, as it is our finest hour that we stand up and have our voice heard.

So, thank you all, people who leave me comments, as it has meant a great deal to me.  I hope you will come around again, when I am able to give you a name for the new blog, and actually have something nice there for you to check out.  Ok, then, later on…  Peace out! Cissy ❤ in central Texas

  1. Hi! I’m also rather new tithe idea of paying real attention to what I eat – I’m sort of lucky in where I live now in that there is no fast-food temptation and we always cook for ourselves. We’re both foodies and both trying to stave off chubby – while still drinking way too much (it’s Ireland, after all, hard to explain how much the pub means for social life until you see it as a local). I’m in mid-BBQ in the dark and expected to hit the pub after, so no time to read your past posts – but from one comment and this post, I think we’ve a lot in common 🙂

  2. Thank you for your kind words at my site Cissy….this is for you…

  3. Most digital cameras allow for shooting in B&W as well as color. Try it once in a while.

  4. I’ll check that out! Maybe it would be okay for me… Thanks Mr. Eideard! I will do that!
