Wunderlust is to be a little mad or obsessed about travel.

There is so many beautiful places to be.

Grab your chair and spend a few minutes to read and see 20 distinctions from around the world.

Jungle (2017)

A young man makes his way to the amazon jungle with friends, but gets lost trying to travel by raft with his friend.

It is a coming of age movie, about a young man that discovers the terrors of being lost in the jungle.

Although, rotten tomatoes only gives it 60%, I highly recommend the movie as entertaining and worth seeing the unsettling consequences of an accident in the jungle.


To see the stars you need clarity.

Check out Hawaii at 14000 feet with 13 telescopes,

Or go down midway to do naked eye stargazing,

Check out an app for locating some place without light pollution,

Take pictures and learn about the objects in the sky,

Bring your favorite goodies to enjoy the evening out:

coffee and chocolate to stay awake and clothing to stay warm.

If you go all the way to the Hawaiian Islands for a visit,

Plan out some other interesting activities to see and do as much as you can and get yourself engaged to a place that is beyond just a vacation destination.

This Is What I like (community and Stuff)

Going out for a hike in the woods-take a hike.

It’s hard to say who is taking care of who.

There are some pretty helpful people, I just got to ask them.

Sometimes, my pride gets in the way.

Other times, I’m just ignorant-don’t know what to do.

I just happen to know, I like to fish.

It’s been a long time.

I use to go fish on the breakwater, or out in a boat.

I like fishing in the Cowichan River.

But, something is missing, I need someone to go with down by the river.

So, I guess, I need to find someone to ask for help.

I guess community means a lot to me.

My uncle and I went to this fishing derby.

I won an orange sleeping bag.

I think my uncle had a better time than me.

I went fishing with a my friend at the breakwater.

We caught a dog fish in the rain.

My friend had a much better time than me.

But I enjoyed being there with a friend, at this breakwater, even in the rain.

People getting together makes most activities enjoyable to me.

Especially, common interest, they seem to initiate the need to get together and spend time with people.

It’s funny, being with relatives, family, friends, and some acquaintances.

I like being with people.

The need to ask for help and the ability to do it.

I like learning how to do it.

There is a good community at home, abroad, and during my common interests or anywhere else I choose to be.

“Beyond The Stars”

Space, Einstein, Stephen Hawkins, life on another planet, purpose and exploration, progress, and much, much more.

NASA and many other space agencies are trying to make it happen.

Science is giving us the way to do it.

Is it necessary?

Is it necessary to grow and learn and share?

Some of us know it is.

Many believe it is.

Together let’s embrace the idea and continue the quest to be all we can be.


The Finite Optimist

As Kipling once wrote, don’t make dreams your master, or thoughts your aim.

To act in accord with dream and thought is an art.

The proper action for the proper thought or dream requires a saints heart and an engineers mind.

It is practical to have a set of rules that allow us to uncover the secrets in life and explore the unknown.

We need to read far and wide and understand to envision the progress the future will hold.

Can you treat your body properly so it will function and stay healthy?

Can you process and build on earth to help it function and stay healthy?

These mysteries require discovery, recovery and more.

Go explore.

Biometric ID

Sovereignty identity as apposed to the idea of the sovereign individual.

To be honest, it is a fancy way to ID who, where and as many other elements of people as they move around the globe.

It is becoming a type of tracking device to find people during an emergency at best or during a hunting down at worst.

Yet, what is a country to do?

It seems peevish to become nationalist about it.

How about socialistic?

In today’s politics, the freedom and individual freedom of ‘passport’ is at stake.

What would it be like to show ID in all entry and exit situations? Sex? Conversations? Going in and out of any activity?

‘Why’is it that most of us celebrate our passport, drivers’s licence, birth certificates, etc?

Of course we are happy about celebrating ‘the individual ‘.

In this sense, happy trails to all, have fun, be a good guest, your friend’s place may have different rules you should know and practice and keep in touch, things can get a little odd traveling to new and different countries and peoples.
