33. Another birthday passes by

33.            It has been a great month [apart from the 'summer' weather], which has seen me wearing a coat and hat, having to put the heating on at night, and getting pissed upon on more than one occasion... English summer rain at it's very best!!!

But, we have walked every single day, spent time in Worcester, North Shropshire, South Shropshire, Cannock Chase and Nottingham... and made new friends along the way.

It has been a great month for many reasons, mostly the views and the people who have crossed my path... but the peace, the freedom and simply the life...I still love doing what I do........

I have done lots of art.......

....and Videos.....................

32. A year on the road

32 A year on the road...

Well, a quick year, lots of changes, good times, bad times, and crazy times... it has had a bit of everything this year. But, all things considered, it has been a wonderful year, full of glorious sights, nice people, fun times and many other experiences....

I am still doing and still enjoying my art, and [for the most part] selling it. I am proud of my work. Yes, it takes forever to do, people will never realise just how long- but I love it. It has become my living, and my head is always throwing new ideas forth...

Ishi went straight through the MOT, so no hassles there. This year saw me back at where I purchased Ishi, with two water leaks. But on the whole, it is all good, 8,000 miles later, and my home rolls onwards.... On to year two...........

I am still making videos, you can find me on YouTube, THE RAMBLINGS OF BRY. Mostly, the comments have been very supportive and it seems I am leading some kind of a march forwards, for many people...

So....year two begins, and we are off.............   be well !!!

31. Summer has arrived

31. Summer has arrived

How many moments have you lived so far? Ten years contain about 5 million, so go and do the calculations. How many things have happened to you during those minutes, or have you made happen? Billions and billions. When you piece together an identity, a story of who you are, you choose only a fraction of these events as components of the narrative, a narrative already determined by millions of pre-existing ones, and you emphasize some episodes over others, and slant the tale to support your idea of self.
You find yourself a character of a great mad/happy/wonderful and sad novel composed for you for untold centuries. People may remember you, or parts of what made you, when you leave this place. They may remember their version of you.
I believe by being honest and true and living your life your way...they just might remember the character that was actually you.
I feel that I have no one other than myself to please, no parents, no boss, my time and my life are of my own making. I simply please myself, dress as I please, go where I want, do what I want, become who I want to become. Life is all about living it...and I am living my life, and loving what I do, regardless of what others may say, do or think- that isn't important to me, never has been and never will be.
While I see some people, many people, working for tomorrow, thinking and worrying about tomorrow, planning for tomorrow, they are missing their life today, forgetting to live in the now, tomorrow never comes! I live today.
So June eh? A cold wind yet sunny, what's that all about? I spent the first week of June house/dog sitting...then headed south for a week, desperate to feed my wanderlust soul, Barton-on-sea, then Highcliffe, Christchurch, Poole, Milford, Kimmeridge...then up to the Cotswolds on a whistle stop tour...magical, and the summer has arrived, blistering too......

Here are 20 things you don’t owe anyone an explanation for.

  6. You don’t owe anyone an apology when you are not sorry, and you would make the same decision again.

  8. You don’t owe anyone the meaning of what you believe in.
  9. You don’t owe anyone a change in your appearance just to please them.

  12. You don’t owe anyone access to information about your life that makes you uncomfortable
  13. You don’t owe anyone gossip material about other people just to fit in.
  14. You don’t owe anyone your time for their projects or for things that matter to them unless they matter to you too.
  15. You don’t owe anyone the commitment to try something “new” just because you were asked.
  16. You don’t owe anyone a safe place for constant complaining and dwelling in their poor choices.
  17. You don’t owe anyone an answer other than the truth to prevent them from being uncomfortable.
  18. You don’t owe anyone your services as a crisis counselor unless you are actually a crisis counselor.

30. C'mon Summer...

Anyone know when Summer is due please? We have had some lovely days, cold mornings and chilly evenings and often a cold wind in the days- where has my summer gone?

So, this is the 30th entry!! Seems a lifetime ago that I started this blog!

In the past couple of months I have been to Dorset, Worcester, Shropshire, Avebury, Stonehenge etc... and still love the travelling life, it suits my wanderlust soul.
Right this second I am in Oxfordshire, house/dog sitting, with 5 dogs!! It's all cool though, I love animals.

We are having Mums ashes interned on Saturday 13th July. It sometimes feels like a very very long time since she died. I miss her every single day, and it still feels totally unreal to me. Grief is the price we pay for love.

I am still making videos, still doing my art, still loving life, still being me.....

My art time lapse video...click this!

30 years since the beanfield, where the police proved they were pigs, acting like wild animals, the tories had ordered their removal, and these thugs went in with the frame of mind to smash up every home and hurt as many people as possible, then the rspca came and started destroying perfectly healthy dogs, just because they belonged to travellers. We live in a sick world. 30 years, but not forgotten....

Take care...and be well !!
