The Call

In the words of Marianne Williamson: "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

One More Shakedown - Harris Beach State Park

Moved the trailer to Harris Beach State Park last Friday for 10 days. Wanted to spend some time here before we move into the RV park - have never stayed in an RV park LOL. One more shakedown with the Black Rock. This time we will get to dump the holding tanks for the first time. It has mostly rained since we arrived. Still having to go slowly with setting up the trailer with our "cheat sheet". There is so much to learn and remember. We had no idea! We love hearing the rain drops on top of the trailer during the night. We feel snug and warm in our little cocoon. Our dear friend Dan'l said we were just 2 old Loggerheads, which took us awhile to figure out? Finally got to have a campfire but ground is very soggy. And the last occupants did not pick up their dog poop - URRRRGGGG. Since it was somewhat melted we didn't see it and it got it all over our plastic bins. We forgot our nozzle at the farmhouse but since it is still not rented Larry was able to go back and retrieved it. Will clean the mess up first break we get in the rain. Since we have been together we have have shared 1000's of campfires. When we were gold mining in the beginning we were boondocking 6 months out of the year in the outback with a campfire almost every night.
