so salty pieces of coral from surfing Hawaii in the 60's and 70's getting reef pounded living in my body fall through my skin from time to time!

sailing to Oahu

Jimi Hendrix was playing on Oahu. I had never sailed. Surfed Mexico, California, Hawaii! Aw, how hard could it be to sail 90-110 miles from Kauai to Oahu? Piece of cake, right? Remember it was the 60's! This is so bad. We thought we were looking at Kaiena Point,Ohau, knowing we weren't going to make the concert! But at least we were in site of Oahu-wrong! Coy, who had never sailed before, me,who had never sailed before, jeff and Abbott etc. We were looking at the sleeping giant on Kauai! We had done three-sixty's in the night! We sailed on the only tri-marran I've ever sailed on ( except later ) in my life, missed the concert! It was at the Waikiki Shell Ampitheater ( Moon eclipsed . We finally made Nawilwili Harbor! The Skipper tried to give us his boat saying, " It's trying to kill me"! We watched him go stark raving mad not even realising that had we got caught in the channel current we were on our way to Japan! Remember it was the 60's and we were going to see Hendrix. I left out some of the good stuff but I will make up for it later!

I Live In "The House Of Pain"!!

What is pain Jim Davis?
Do we choose to feel it? Where is it felt? In my mind that received a signal from a damaged area of my body? I stubbed my toe. Does my toe hurt? It doesn't have a mind of it's own, so it tells it's representitive, " My mind " to feel pain for it. In a way " my mind " beingthe awareness center of all the appendages called, " the body ", can simply say, " I am uncomfortable with pain "! " Pain is disallowed "!! You think? What is bizarre to me is a thought process. One chooses or holds on to a " type of thinking ", a (in German) veltinshoung, a world view. A way of looking and a perception that defines oneself, kind of a, " What I stand for ", concept. Unbelief is a choice, One chooses to believe or disbelieve based upon a personal relationship with a particular idea. It doesn't matter what the said idea may be about! It doesn't matter who brought it up, where it came from or who expressed it! What does matter is your willingness to explore a dicey idea and see if it has any merit? Without prejudice. That is hard. I prefer, The Absense Of Pain"! I am having fun writing down these thoughts. While I am FOCUSED on writing, I have forgotten or am so focused on what I am sharing, the pain that I am feeling from the car that threw me unto the street yesterday!!Off the bicycle I was riding is simply pushed into an un-focused, non-essential, de-prioratized, appathetic,un-feeling Sea of Forgetfulness. Sea ( as in the ocean ) what I'm driving at? It seems that fixed ideas, opinions and the strength of our convictions determine our identity or who we " think ", WE ARE. Does this remind you of captivity or prison? When my focus is outside of myself there is no pain. There is no doubt! However, there are many questions. In the pursuit of answers to these questions I witness myself changing. The desire for truth leads one to an under going which brings froward an overcoming to a thought process that is continually active. Not Static but in motion. Re-difining itself daily. I took a break and thought about Emerson and Thoreau. Sipped my beer and the pain hit me. My ribs might be broken but when I focus on what I am discourseing with you there is no pain! When I look at the " American River ", and the bicycle that brought me here, I can only wonder at how I have and still am having a great adventure. There are many phases of pain, but truly, where are they felt? You decide. Is the pain you are experiencing physical, mental or spiritual? When you can ask this question you already are the proud pocessor of the answer even if you don't know it YET! But you Will. A few Quotes...... Heal thyself physician To thine own self be true.... Me Thinks thou protesteth to much! Love thine enemy as thyself! Paved paradise, put in a parking lot........ Remember the things we used to know, Please photograph them before they go! Just because I said it doesn't mean it's not true! Better living through chemistry. To be or not to be, That is the question. What is wind? I can't see it' But........ Is trust a type of faith? Does hope float? Sin or swim! Is; Honesty is the best policy. Oppisition breeds good composition. Good from far but far from good..... Measure twice cut once. A wise man asks what a fool pretends to know. A stitch in time saves nine. All is vanity You shouldn't have took more than you gave. Give onto Ceaser what is Ceaser's! Ask and ye will receive. The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. Don't ask me, I'll tell you..... If I want your opinion I'll give it to you! Is a glass half full or half empty? Might is right!!!! Possession is 9/10 the of the law Seek and ye will find!!!!!!!!!! ``
