The Jeep Journals

I left my corporate job on 7/21/17 in order to help showcase Nature for Mother Nature fans online. I did not arrive easily at this decision since my corporate job paid extremely well and included amazing benefits. Alas, the one benefit I was not easily allowed was the time to immediately pursue any and all wild events happening any and all moments of every day throughout the world. I know it would have helped me greatly to see more Nature during the work week, so that is what I’ve set out to bring to you. Stay tuned!

New Year, Same Fear?

Not long ago I shared quite a bit online. YouTube was my channel of choice. I was able to discuss several topics quickly and easily for communication among those with whom I have had difficulties communicating in the past. The tricky thing is that more and more I found that even those relationships I’d nurtured on the trails and nourished offline would still wither.

“Wither or not” we are able to communicate effectively sometimes takes a bit of evaluating of the situation. For example, have you ever been in line with someone who raises their voice when they are not getting their way? The “passive aggressive” aggression is not harmless or safe, when it comes to being “exposed” to these illnesses. What if WE are ill?

Recognizing illness of self sometimes takes recognizing how we treat the ill and infirm. Do we “treat” them at all? Do we ignore them because they are “unrelated” to us? Do we look in the mirror long enough to “see” ourselves? Some people cannot recognize even clearly dated information showcasing something from the past in the current media we consume.

Speaking of consumption, how many of us have so far stuck to those new resolutions? Were they really new to begin with? When did we give up trying? So many thoughts had driven me to create so many songs since so many people have found so many reasons to turn away from knowledge spoken at clear concise volumes that even a child can understand.

And do you hear me? Anyway.
