Travel...

Aha....Kit rolls in tonight and tomorrow we are off to the old isles....the UK. Good friends are staying and watching over my little fur-buddy Dina and I know she will be in great hands....

So much I want to see and "feel" in England! We will be thorough and will stay in southern England, east to west and back. Some just to see sacred sites and areas and some to see where my very ancient ancestors were rooted.

I wish there was time to take my metal detector along and do some treasure hunting...it is awesome in the UK....you can find Roman artifacts and celtic pieces in the same fields sometimes.... 

An interesting aside is that the DNA retrieved from remains in barrows dated back as far as 4000 years before Roman occupation matches up with DNA from present day citizens. Does that not mean they are indigenous?

I hope to find at least some little connection to early oral traditions and feel something of what my forebears felt...well except for the drunken Laird of the Manor in Shaftsbury of the 1500's....I know enough about the cups!

More later friends and I wish I could take you all with me.

I am going with the belief that I am in the Creator's hands and my health will hold steady throughout the trip.

Be Peace,

Oh yeah...nature...

Ummmmm boy. That was nice....So glad to be able to get through the health stuff enough to camp a couple nights...

It was sweet, a site along the Gila river within a few minutes walk to a nicely built hot pot to soak in.

I enjoyed meeting my brother-in-law's new lady friend....a very nice soul and it was good to camp with him as well.

The photo is of our little camper on the way home....God how I love new Mexico....

Back home and getting ready for our visit to the Isle of Albion....yay...

Be Peace...

My good news...

Yes! The cumin seems to have been the culprit and I am feeling a lot better....in fact so good I am going camping with Kit and Abel, her brother, for a couple days....!

This is one of Abel's secret special places. I am really looking forward to it...it has a small hot spring also....

Best to all my friends and family.....

Be peace

hmmmmm...dammit!

Well I goofed again. Not enough caution in what supplements I take...I do have it down to a couple, well-researched by me, supplements now and won't be adding any anytime soon....

I thought I was wise in using cumin as an anti-inflammatory, joint help addition to my diet. I was taking two caps a day one in the morning and one in the evening....

The doc had asked if I took any kind of blood thinner and I had stopped the 81mg aspirin I was taking, so I told him no.

Something finally niggled my hind-brain enough to get my attention though and I did some research on cumin...yikes! WebMD says to not take it if you have any kind of blood issue....who knew? "Ask your healthcare provider" is something that just doesn't ring a bell for me as none of my medical community that Medicare or my excellent insurance covers will tell me much at all about supplements since there is no federal oversight nor any real  research done in the US available for most of them.

So to make a long story shorter, by taking the cumin supplement I was exacerbating my bladder bleeding issue.

This is reminiscent of when my first urologist in Boise, ID asked me to please run anything "supplemental" that I was taking by her since there are elements that actually will mask the markers for the cancer I have and make me think the cancer is "cured" when in fact it isn't and it will grow unchecked.

Beware...be-aware....

Power of prayer and visualization....

Hi friends,

Well today...the 20th ....I am appearing to be back to a good facsimile of "normal"!  Had a great night and my body is feeling good, I have no medical devices clamped or inserted and I appear to be free of losing blood....

Thank you my friends and family for your beautiful, healing and warm thoughts and prayers. It worked and while I will go slow for a couple days to keep the healing doing it's job, I think I am over the rough stuff for today, which of course is all we have....so I am thrilled!

On a low note, my efforts to digitize my father's tapes is scraping the bottom....damn ignorance! I often find myself lost in the world of computer jargon and lacking the experience and/or the knowledge to move forward and this is one of those times. I find the right software and download it fine but somewhere along the way it asks me things that are greek or geek and I have no idea about...things like ASPI drivers that I do not have on my little old puter...argh....

Obviously not an area where my intuition works for me....:)

Anyway...enough and I hope your day is computer/stress-free.....

Love and Peace,

MWB

Trying to not a wish away a day....

I am soooo, impatient to get to the docs tomorrow. TMI as to why, but it will be a relief and hopefully a step out of the medical drama...

Meanwhile since I have been locked into my house for about a week....and I am a hand-on kinda guy....I am going a little stir crazy...tons of reading, praying and meditating...(what happens if I become too spiritual?)
haha...joke...., video watching, etc.

So today, and I really needed to get to this, I dug out the 28 120 minute cassette tapes of my Dad's life narrated by him and  started digitizing them for the rest of my family.

Oh man, to hear his voice after all these years is a rush. I miss that ol' boy so much and feel lucky to have had him as my Father.

I am using a Ion tape convertor and have yet to see how well it works. I am uploading to Itunes and hope to download to thumb drives for the family.....

A good use of my time....

I listened through the first tape side and wanted to keep listening but I will try and increase the volume a bit in Itunes to make it easier to hear him.....

Peace,
MWB

On and On and On......

Still down with this health problem.  Not much to say about it....Hopefully when I go in to the doc on Monday I will be able start moving on from this....

I have been meditating more and visualizing healing more so that may help.....or maybe it already is...

My friend, Lester H. from Vandwelling circles came and visited and was helpful both for the distraction and some things like mowing the yard for me. He is now in Biloxi I believe, working a new job.

So other than that...all is well and I continue to feel gratitude for being alive and on earth with you all...

Peace,
MWB
