Watched the Kute Blackson Miracle video again today and came across this video of his..

Here’s his Love Now music video:

Continuing the turn of events, this morning my mom called to say that my dad had the nurse ask us for some Wayne Dyer CD’s. Yesterday he seemed a bit depressed and low in energy; it’s great to hear that he’s gaining courage, strength, and determination to move forward! He’s on the right path; the beginning is always the hardest part. Yes, he had a set-back, and had to start over, though he’s moving forth! Whenever something shows up in […]

Just dropping a quick line to anyone reading to let ya know I’m still here.. it’s been a busy past few days! Last friday, my dad went to the hospital for tests and was expecting to maybe have stents put in as he had clogged arteries, though he found out that his main artery was 100% blocked and the other two main ones were 80% and 60-70% blocked – all of a sudden he had to have a triple bypass […]

just got a copy of I: Reality and Subjectivity, Dr. David R. Hawkins’ third book, in the mail today, and I could feel the high energy radiating from the book as I took it out of the Amazon box and read the back of it! What a great read this will be! If any of you haven’t read Power vs. Force or Eye of the I, pick them up! I felt more present, in the moment/now, just reading the first […]

Working on Lake Tarpon at one of the benches on the walkway behind the dog park in John Chestnut Park..

From the house..

A couple shots at the house while I worked on finishing adding features to a web application. It’s beautiful to be able to work from wherever I desire, whenever I desire (within limits of deadlines!). I urge you all to do what you love to do! Don’t work just for the money or survival! Go out, explore, do what you love – there are plenty of opportunities to make a living doing what you desire. If you feel you can’t […]

While working at the Panera with Joe in Fort Myers..




To enjoy. To love. To live.

Here’s a Youtube video my friend Larry sent me this morning..

Today I found myself in a bit of an interesting creation. I know I’ve done this in the past very often, though noticed it again. What I was doing was allowing myself to get caught up in others’ creations. Perhaps it was to make others feel more comfortable. Perhaps it was to make myself feel more comfortable. I don’t know exactly, though I was sitting in the same low energy as my family around me. Earlier in the day I […]

Today, more than ever, is a time that we, as individuals, and as a society, must step up to the plate and take full personal responsibility. It’s so easy to place the blame on someone else and try to get away with something we did or didn’t do. It all comes from a lack of confidence, a fear of being disapproved of – basically, a fear of rejection or separation. If we had the courage to say yes, I did […]

Mark Marano welcomes Spring with an updated website with a new journal/blog.. it's not quite perfect yet, though check it out!

Along the causeway in Howard Park as I work on re-coding a new WordPress template for this web site. The sky and feeling in the air after sundown was absolutely amazing and perfectly calm..

Here’s a snapshot with the phone camera while scouting out a location for the shot..

Forgot to consider if the tide would rise when setting this up.. I’m glad I set the camera low enough for an interesting shot yet still a couple/few inches higher than where the tide did rise to!

Next shot will be from a higher angle.. much higher than this when I get a very tall tall tripod in the future..

From the room I stayed in at the Sheraton in Maitland where the Avatar Course was held..

On the drive to John Chestnut Park and from the car while listening to an audio program by Gregg Braden

Yes, this one is very exciting! The lamp and the window, yup, you got it! The ones below are a little more interesting, from Lansbrook Park later in the day..

A few time-lapses from the Dunedin Causeway..

A couple time-lapses after too much sushi in North Fort Myers with Joe, at a small park area just off of S Tamiami Trail, looking at the water toward Midpoint Bridge (way in the background) All you can eat sushi was a bad idea! :)


A potentially industry-changing technology in photography is now being field tested.. Yes, this test camera is transparent and they are changing sheet film in broad daylight! No ordinary sheet film – this film is directionally desensitized so ambient light won’t expose it, and ISO speed is 1/500 !!! The image produced is equivalent to terapixels in digital photography. Press release was Sunday and they’ve already received too many requests for field tests, though I look forward to seeing images and the availability of cameras and film in the future. It’ll be great to see this technology applied to a large format digital sensor! I’d love to carry around a clear camera like his prototype!

Yes, perhaps some of you are doubting this as possible, especially with the close proximity to April 1, though have a little fun with life and this dream we call reality! Do realize, we are embarking into a new era where things far more unimaginable than this will soon become manifested as real for many of us.

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Wow, just went on Facebook right after publishing my last post on personal responsibility, and saw Harry Palmer post a link to this Youtube video.. Following the first video link, I found the others below..

Here’s a time-lapse of the drive to visit my dad at the hospital.. He’s recovering well and may go home tomorrow.

the adventure, the life, the journal

be me and express myself in front of others and connect with others i enjoy all the connections, all the time see the world as it is see myself in everyone and everything i am me in front of others i naturally speak to others i am around others more often i stop resisting going where others are i enjoy being around others

On the way back to the Avatar Course.. I wish I didn’t have to leave last Sunday though had 56.5 hours of work to get a web app project caught up..

Sometimes I don’t always know where I’m going or what I’m doing, though I always end up where I am. What does that mean, you might ask? I follow my feelings and intuition, whether I realize I am or not, and I end up further along the path of where I desire to be. It’s really that simple. Make a decision of where you want to be in life or what you to do, and then follow your intuition and […]

A couple time-lapses at Sunset Park in Tarpon Springs later in the afternoon..

Today at the Avatar Course, I read in front of the entire room and wasn’t nervous! I was a bit at first, though got a little distracted as our group was a little uncertain if we should go up right away as there was a pause before our reading.. After the distraction and walking up on stage and John coming up with us to conclude the prior exercise, I was fine and read my part pretty smoothly! The first time […]

There are three kinds of people in the world, those who are asleep, those who are stirring, and those who are awake.

If you try to wake up the sleeping person he will just mumble and go back to sleep. If you wake up the stirring person he will wake up just long enough to curse you and then go back to sleep.

Instead of trying to wake them up, if you come across someone who is asleep or stirring what you should do is, fluff their pillow, tuck them in, and kiss them on the forehead.

The important joy for those who are awake is to seek each other out, connect with others who are awake, talk, sing and celebrate together. This will create a groundswell of awareness. As this groundswell increases and spreads out, it will awaken the stirring and will begin to stir those who are still sleeping.
