it was very cloudy this afternoon, and i almost didn’t go here this evening, though i knew there’d be a chance we’d have a spectacular sunset (as well as a chance of having no sunset if the clouds stayed thick). gratefully i decided to go, as those of us on the roof of the clearwater library were blessed with a beautiful sky, a great view, and a slight breeze. i overheard someone whose been there every week saying it was the best sunset of the season.

i went on a drive south today in my #electriccar. by adding some energy at free public chargers, the whole trip of 182.1 miles cost me less than what a single gallon of gas would cost (and had i paid at home for all the electricity needed to go that far it still would’ve only cost about the same as 2 gallons of gas). #driving #bridge #bay #road #overcast #cloudy #water #electricvehicle #bev #ev

four years ago today [2012.10.19]

i woke up and drove across the bay to san francisco to meet a couple of other friends who happened to be visiting san francisco.  it was overcast and foggy that day.  we went to eat at the vegetarian restaurant i'd been to the day before, the source.  afterwards, we went to explore the piers and saw the sea lions before going on a ride to see the golden gate bridge.  we left the bridge welcome center, drove by the coast a little, and then went down lombard street.  it was nice to spend time with them when we happened to be in the area.  we had a good conversation about group thinking and i remember one of my friends saying how i didn't really conform to any group.  after we parted ways, i drove east and spent the night at a campground between sacramento and lake tahoe.

the next day i wrote something about how it was funny to think about the city as a meeting place.  it was neat that i met friends from both florida and chicago when i was out in san francisco.  two lived there and two were just passing through.  i thought of how it was similar to how we all happen to be on earth at the same time and show up in each other's lives.  perhaps we all had decided and planned these meetings long before we even showed up on this planet.

if some things in life aren’t as you prefer, rather than dwelling in the frustration or giving energy toward fighting what you don’t want, direct your focus toward visualizing & creating what you do want. if it’s difficult to do this at first, spend time realizing how much in life you can be grateful for. celebrate these and the good that you do enjoy. this simple shift in energy will raise your vibration, and you may soon forget about what was bothering you (and the very thing you didn’t like may have transformed into something more aligned with what you desire). a shift in perspective can be quite powerful, even miraculous at times.

four years ago today [2012.10.17]

i woke up in a parking lot on the point reyes peninsula and began exploring at dawn.  it was quite stunning to be somewhere so beautiful and experience the early morning light.  i wandered about the national seashore as the sun rose and discovered parts of it i never knew existed.  living life on the road was incredible when waking up in such magnificent places.. yes, there were challenges to living out of such a small space, though to get to stay in unique places and be right there during the most brilliant times of day was awesome and inspiring.  this world is really incredibly beautiful and filled with so many majestic places.. you only need to go wander and allow yourself to discover them.

after leaving point reyes, i followed california route 1's winding drive south on the cliffs.  i made some stops to take in the beautiful views on my way to muir woods.  while at muir woods national monument, i hiked a long trail past where all the tourists were and ended up at the panoramic highway before turning around.  on the way out of muir woods, i drove the panoramic highway the long way back to route 1, and then made my way toward sausalito and the marin headlands.  i barely fit the truck in the one parking spot i found on the street in sausalito and walked down to the shops and water for a bit.  at marin headlands, the golden hour light on the city and bridge was really nice as the sun was setting.

i then crossed the golden gate bridge and passed through san francisco on my way to meet a friend for dinner in alameda.  it was many years since i last saw him in college and he had grown and transformed quite a bit.  when it came up in the conversation, i liked how he described it as when he "found himself". it was great and inspiring to see him and learn of his success.  he'd been loving life in california and suggested places to check out.  after dinner, i drove to a nearby green spot on the map in hopes of finding a quiet place to park for the night.  it seemed to always be a challenge finding a spot when it was dark, especially in or near urban areas.  i ended up on the side of the road near homes and kept the top down.

it was great to see after this flight that the gopro was barely hanging on as one of the tightening knobs was hanging off the side and about to fall off! i'm grateful that somehow it miraculously held on and made it back in one piece!
