A Course in Miracles Lounge

Let Love teach you what You are.

Springtime is in full bloom and hints of summer's heat beckon upon us during our afternoons. Tomorrow I venture forth on a road trip that is unusual for my company; it begins in North Carolina and moves westward across more than half of Tennessee up into Kentucky and Illinois, then crosses the Mississippi River to Missouri and on to Kansas City turning north to Omaha and stopping in Norfolk, Nebraska. Though I am not fully unchartered to these pathways of travel, having been a student in college at Manhattan, Kansas and did some early OTR trucking into Colorado, Nebraska, Iowa and back, well that was 30 years ago and more, so I am excited about the new vistas, people and experiences that present themselves to my perception while traveling. Leaving Norfolk, Nebraska I will be headed northeasterly toward a little town called Stewartville, Minnesota. Once leaving there it shall be southeastern bound back to North Carolina arriving back home late Friday or early Saturday morning. Rocky and I shall be taking pictures and movies along the way. I know the corn fields of the midwest are not yet in full height, but then what is growing should be pretty tall and covering much of the landscapes. I take your peace and light and love along with me. From time to time I shall check emails with my smartphone, actually; it is smarter than me. Love and Light. Lightdrops

Yes, and for those of us that have and do continue to travel the highways and byways of the world, we notice the duplicity of town names, family names and types of food that come with the surroundings; especially in the United States of America. Won't it be wonderful when we all remember where it was that 'we' all called 'Home' and duplicate its love, harmony, peace and joy here on earth.

Great photos David. Some very scenic shots. You certainly covered a lot of territory. Who said "it's a small world"? masil.pauline.

It shall be a while before the video's, but I'll up load some of the pic's. Rocky and I were home again, home again on Friday evening at about 5:00 PM EST after doing 2855 miles round trip in five days.
Our dialects of english are varied and unique to the regional areas, especially Minnesota~, and the nature of the environments varied so greatly from mountains, plains, rivers and valleys that each mile was new and inviting to behold. Lightdrops

Rocky and I pulled the rig into /Sapp Bros Truck Stop in Omaha this afternoon at 4:00 PM EST. Took the dog for a walk and got some tea and took a nap before dinner. Seems the truckstop is providing a free wifi connection so I can share the first leg of the trip with you. We left Mt Pleasant, NC at about 9:00 AM and headed west out of Charlotte on I-85 South. When we came to King Mountain, NC we turned west onto US Hwy 74 and headed out to Columbus, NC at the junction with I-26 W. The Blue Ridge Mtns of the Smokies could be seen creating a barrier to the western passage of our late grandfathers as they worked westward in the 1700's and 1800's. The Green River cuts a deep gorge across which an interstate bridge was built and then comes the town of Saluda, NC. Further northwest on this I-26 comes US 25 running northwest from Greenville, SC up some of the prettiest rock faces found on the eastern slopes of the Blue Ridge. Once we ge high enough and near to Ashville, NC we cross the French Broad River ( no cancan girls) and merge into the west leg of I-40 heading into the Gap.
DOT slows us down to 55 MPH through the GAP and keeps us in the left lane while the highway twists and turns through the canyon as it follows the river into Tennessee. I have some digital video footage of this part of the trip I need to edit prior to uploading. We traveled 670 miles in 10.5 hours of driving the first day. On the second day (today) we awoke in Mt Vernon, Illinois at the TA Travel Center and rolled off to cross the Mississippi River at St Louis, Missouri. It was a wonderful sunny morning and those mid-westerners were up at the crack of dawn and creating quite a rush-hour at 6:00AM CST coming into St Louis from Illinois and western Missouri. Got some shots of the Arch on the west bank of the Mississippi River and then around Blue Springs, Missouri for you Unity friends. Kansas City was in our windshield at about noon their time and we headed north along the Lewis and Clark trail to Rock Port and across into Iowa. Not many trees out this way. Weather was exceptional, as the winds carried rain from the northeast blowing to the southwest (unusual) and temperatures held to a nice 68 degrees F. Tomorrow we pick-up freight and head onto Minnesota for some more before turning back south and east again. Love to all, Lightrops

Enjoy yourselves. Your trip will certainly offer time to reflect (light :) ) and time to play. A road trip across the States is on my to-do-before-I-die-list !! maybe by rail :) I just imagine each State as having a totally different feel. All surface things but hey !! enjoy. masil.pauline.
