A Odd Picture I Decided To Share

Many people know I am a firm believer in the paranormal. This picture was taken at a fishing hole in the state park area of Hernando County, Florida. The picture has not been doctored in any way and the only people who were in this section were my partner and myself plus one of our dogs. At first I thought that this was a case of pareidolia. However, I joked when we got to the location I am going to fall over the embankment as there is nothing there to stop me. I did look up the history of this area and it consist of settlers, indians and dare I may say even rumored witchcraft. 

Is this pareidolia? If you do not know what pareidolia is it is the scientific explanation for some people for the ability to see shapes or to make pictures out of randomness?  Here is the picture close up.

Again I am not saying it's a ghost. But knowing the history of the area it is a interesting shot. What do you think?

Wanting To Live A Simple Life

Now at days it seems like we are all struggling in the race to get everything newer and better.  I am struggling against that way of life as I want to go back to a much simpler time and life. Don't get me wrong, I love my laptop and its my source of income. I use it to work, to write and do research. But on the days I am not using it, I would rather have the time to be in the kitchen creating, crafting or outdoors enjoying nature.  When I was younger, I wanted the big house with all the rooms and fancy things.  Now I want a cabin or small home with a basic kitchen, pantry, bathroom and bedroom.  The need and want for all the extras are gone. What I would like is a house on land away from everything to have my garden and some animals. I want to work to live and enjoy life instead of working to survive.  My dream has always been to write as a career. I know that is a hard dream to obtain, but its still my dream.

I am currently working on making the home more obtainable.  I have started to pay off all my old debt and doing side hustles to pay off those bills even faster.  I am living more frugal than I ever have before.  I use the objects in my home until they fall apart. I am cooking more from scratch and eating out less. I have also continued to craft for gifts and trading.  

With the hustle of today's world wanting a simpler life is a better move.  I will take the snide comments and living within my means so I can eventually retire to the life I want. The goal for my property and home are there and I am excited for that future.

Take care and blessings to you all!

The Sun Had Risen

Fishing Bridge Aripeka, Florida 3/5/2022

Well, like the sunrise in this picture I am making the personal decision to rise along with it.  I suffer from very bad anxiety, depression and PTSD.  That being said, there are times where I do not want to do anything in my life.  Then there are times where I am a super motivated individual who wants to do everything.  I am not going to get into the reasons about why I suffer from everything I do, but the reasons are valid and personally its too much to share at this time.  When I am ready though I will share.

But now it's time to bring this blog back to life.  I may not be able to travel yet or add pictures from that but I can say I am able to write. I have had a few people also question if my other social media will be coming back.  To be honest, I am currently going through my social media to see what can be moved to here and what is worth keeping.  The want to simplify my life and cut out all the bad I had in it will also mean cutting out a lot of social media. So you never know.

My goal is in the next three years is to buy a piece of land and go off grid. I want a large garden and to write.  I want to go from working to survive to work to live.  I am also dragging you all along with me for the adventure.

Take care and be blessed all.

Happy Monday Everyone 5/20/2024!

Well, how was your weekend? If you were off, did you get rest? If you worked, I hope you didn't have to deal with Karen's or Ken'...
