Some graffiti is good :)

Some graffiti is good! Right?

And OH what a word!

“Perception” is currently in the top 1% of lookups and is the 135th most popular word on Merriam-Webster.com.

Curious.

This word is so powerful in the world and in your mind. It alone could be the cause of all the wars. EVER. It could also be the cause of someone investing $1 in the stock market and getting a $1 Million return. In other words, it can create miracles or strangle them.

It is love. It is peace. It is fear and it is hate.

Google’s definition: the ability to see, hear, or become aware of something through the senses.

Merriam-Webster’s definition: the way you think about or understand someone or something

Do what you will with this day.

What if you shifted to a “higher” view?

Question your perception.

Lisa’s Great American Roadtrip: Denver to Portland

Image

To sum it all up: Perfect!

Lisa McIntyre's Road Trip

My route.

I left Denver in mid-September with my kitty, my Jeep and my vintage trailer. The idea was to go anywhere that sounded great and to chase the sun. After traveling through the Rocky Mountains from Colorado, through the Tetons, Yellowstone and the beauty of western Montana I chose to cross the plains of Washington on highway 2 then up and over the Cascades and down to Portland, OR. Not much sun, but think I’ll stay here a while.

I remain UBER passionate about helping people step out of their stuckness even if it’s just a taste of the other side to start. I desire to spark the intrigue about the possibility of what exists “out there”. I want to inspire people to move out of their immediate life and comfort zones into the beauty that awaits just beyond that edge … Go for it! Wheee!

We need not live in fear. It’s all hogwash! The reality is that people are amazing EVERYWHERE and to SEE Mt. Rushmore (for example) with your own eyes is very different from reading about it, even with photos and videos.

Yes … people are different in different parts of our country. The city folk have a different way of spending an evening than country folk. Southerners eat differently than Midwesterners. The east coast is more densely populated than the west coast and the industry in the plains is different from that in the Rocky Mountains. Thank goodness! Cultural, archaeological and geographical differences = new adventure!

“De nada, Tostada!”

I strive for nothing.

More precisely for nothingness.

There is beauty there.

The little things make life great!

There are definitely things I DO.  I work toward my dreams, do mundane chores, take long drives, visit good friends, dance (as much as possible), eat delicious food … and all of those things make me happy.

But to be in solitude is unbelievably gratifying and has brought me much contentment and clarity.

Try it for fun.

PS – “Nada” means “nothing” in Spanish; “De nada”  is slang for “you’re welcome” or “its nothing”.
