⛺ ADVENTURE SCOUTS 🌠
If you were looking for the Adventure Scouts online it is here. This is a personal blog, and that is a group site, so stupid opinions I may or may not have here shouldn’t reflect on that amazing group of people.
WHY THE SITE NAME IS : BORN TO BE ALIVE
WHY I WRITE: I WRITE TO STAY PRODUCTIVE/ACCOUNTABLE:
In the past, I may have had different motivations or aspirations, but this year I’ve found writing about my goals and life helps me stay way more accountable and consistent, which I have struggled with. It also helps me process my emotions, feel less overwhelmed and I get a ton of reader support and ideas, which is very helpful and motivating. It’s helping me climb out of the pandemic funk and feel like I’m doing “enough” as a human being, which feels good. I also like to speak about truths that I found, which I feel are tricky to find, it doesn’t seem to happen often, but when it happens I write about it…

ABOUT MY EMOJITHUSIASM:
For me, the emojis pay homage to our different, but equal psychological “lens” of the world and celebrate my respect to diversity…
I’ve was a huge fan of symbology before emojis even existed. 1. They tie the left and right brain together for me, but 2. they are different for everyone’s systems, I actually love that, so what looks beautiful to me, may not work or may be ugly on your system. It sounds like a flaw in an article or web design, but to me it’s a reminder of how much our soul’s lens color our world (a lot, but not completely).
I love looking at my blog from my phone, tablet, and computer and seeing it differently.
I prefer the emojis to not be broken, but when they are, it reminds me of ancient sutras with certain words that are lost to time, rendered incomprehensible by lingual shifts.
I find it beautiful, freeing, and healing to so easily add some color and beauty to the black-and-white words (which have a beauty of their own). I use emojipedia.org to access emojis, since I write from a computer that has been a fun and helpful resource to me for many years.

THANK YOU READERS, YOU COMPLETE ME!
Special thank you, the difference between the crazy homeless people shouting to themselves in the parking lot, and me, is – you, it’s you reader, thank you! ❤️
Poem for the road?
What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore—
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over—
like a syrupy sweet?
Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.
Or does it explode?– Langston Hughes
