Fear - A Nemesis?
There are times when I am so unsure of what my heart is trying to express.
Maybe it is actually silent...
May be I am trying to force words and explanations from an internal echo, out into a vibration of sound bites for consumption.
Could it be the unity so many long for is being expressed in the harmonizing of universal discontent? Maybe it is the pulsing sound of our shared blood, spilling out of veins ripped open by the scream of a darkness unimagined in the endless expressions of man.
A fluid undulating stream of unknown proportions.
Many try to grasp its movement, to cage it with words or some supposed understanding of its origin.
Sometimes it resonates.
Sometimes it blows the border of our own pictures so wide open that we stall in the wake of such visual, spiritual, emotional chaos.
How do we re-calebrate? How do we take flight again?
The unknown is as infinite as the universe and it is incredibly easy to get lost down its rabbit hole. I have (parentheses) as my buoy.
It is the pause in my movie, the comma in my sentences, an island of observance to the story of this universe thru mine eye. It is how I choose to navigate this matrix of supposed life, to give it meaning when it looks as if there never was any.
The story is as alive as we think we are and as the author of my own, I am thankful for access to such a tool, such a teacher.
Words are Wonderful. Words are a Distraction. Words are Meaningful. Words are Powerful. Words are sHit.
This story is feeling quite static and overwhelmingly invasive right now and I am unsure that the buoy hasn't been damaged in this most recent universal storm for our hearts.
I believe LOVE - the DNA that continues to bind us thru it all.
So as the night comes, we keep sHining our light thru the cracks keeping our embers warm, glowing and in ernest for the stoking that is begun. This stoking is igniting the embers into flames engulfing the forest of our souls - all the wHile, laying foundation for new growth new life new story.
Stories of LOVE JOY PEACE KINDNESS GOODNESS pass it on...
How will you write your story? Ride your wave? Direct your movie? Sing your song? Share your heart?
However you choose, I hope it is with
- Sunspots -
Illumination of the moment.
Burning a slice of time into the banks of my memory.
Visual inspiration brought to us by nature, sourced by LOVE.
That's what Sunspots do for me.
Thought box revamp 2017 - Rohnert Park, CA
Brett & I recently took two weeks out of our regularly scheduled program, to add some always invited inspiration & reconnection into the mix.
Brett has spent the last 5/6 weeks revamping our Mini Cruiser. So we took *Enuf 2.0* on her maiden re-voyage to his parents & then up the Sonoma/Mendocino coast & it was perfectly perfect.
A remembering occurred...
Tears were shed, circles were closed & spirals appeared where there used to be only loss and atrophy.
We refueled our hearts and reignited our souls with the music of inspiration and hope.
When do we embrace the wHo we aspire to be?
When do we stand up for ourselves?
When do we allow for the energy to break us open and expose Our truth?
When we Choose to remember
When we Choose acknowledgement over apathy
When we Choose to Believe we DO have a choice
When we Choose
Sunspots...what do they do for you?
It's an animals life...
This is Indigo working on a bonding strategy with Bonnie, Clyde & Earl.
They are the Castle Villa Romano-Zall's 'Gang' of ducks and they don't let anyone forget it!
Tante Mary's smile is just a bonus :)
We had a fire breakout less than a mile from our home yesterday!
Two homes, five structures & at least one major injury occurred.
It was a slightly heart-pounding kind of day...
Thru it all, the noise from the helicopters, the smoke & chemical smells etc, the animals went on as if their lives weren't in imminent danger!
They ate, they pooped, they slept, they pushed my buttons by digging in the herbal flower garden (yes, I have buttons) and as always, they made my heart smile :)
The cast of characters calling Castle Villa Romano-Zall home is always a source of re-grounding, re-connecting and of course, endless entertainment!
The calm steady vibration they all seem to exude on a daily basis is a good reminder for me, that it is worth my effort(s) to practice enjoying and remaining open to the beauty in each day I am gifted.
...and of course keeping an eye out for the inevitable lessons, immediately or those surely to come.
Vend the dead - An invitation
Here we go again!
Brett & I have been working hard to get ready for our next event. It's never boring I have to say.
This is more of an invitation than a blog, but it works for now.
I will pay attention so as to share the inevitable stories and ultimately the lessons that will most definitely come before, during and after this event.
Thank you all for continually supporting us, wHether in spirit or even sometimes in body.
Ps. I have included the latest LMB Pulse below for those that only access our info thru this website.

ONE LOVE/Thougtbox -X
We are humbled by this enlightened entry. It was (Since 0614) & IS our hope, to inspire other humans to love, to connect, using Thougtbox ideology. The Thougtbox is LIVE; a special, sacred place that Stacey & I created. It IS evolving! It has been since its origination. As one might imagine, it has its own sorted history. Everything from a sweet entry such as this one into this particular notebook inside the box, to having other similar notebooks (And other sacred gifted momentos surrounding the area of the Thougtbox) thrown into the creek aside it. As I have thought, and always said about the Thougtbox - It is a "Social Experiment." 000.1 resides in Rohnert Park. (@38.3505471-122.6867135)
We invite YOU - One and ALL to visit Thougtbox 000.1. Get some massive energy chills. Heal...
P.S. Where's the H?
I wanted to post a blog about our first vending experience right after the event and have included some fun pictures from our supporters.
The short story is that it was another marker in both of our lives & I will revisit & share our thoughts about this part of the adventure again soon.
However, Brett, myself and our family found out that his sister Kelly had been found dead Saturday morning, so we immediately came to the bay area to be with and assist his parents thru this heartbreaking time.
While her fleshly presence will be missed, she is finally at rest & will always be a part of our hearts & always in our memory.
Nothing is promised, to any of us. Hug our loved ones more. Speak our heart without fear...we are all craving real.
Show by our choices & actions that love leads our heart and just watch as our ripples touch the shores of the sleeping.
Life goes on as will we.
One Love ~ One Heart
Adventures in vending...
Brett & I (leftmindblind) have been visualizing this for quite awHile I'd say, since reconnecting in 2008 to be specific.
It has happened BECAUSE we visualized, constantly talked about, made hard choices and willingly (sometimes UNwillingly) sacrificed for.
We are slowly coming from a place of survival into a new chapter of our journey we call THRIVING. Most importantly personally & now with this upcoming event, professionally.
We are continually learning to choose becoming a better version of ourselves with each day we are gifted.
If there is anything I can say to encourage, it would be to listen, trust then follow your heartsong(s).
The melody you will create embraces you from within and inspires an explosion of creation unmatched & more significantly a love that roots deep and never stops growing.
~One Love my fellow beings of light <3

LMB ~Stacey & Brett
Feeling grateful and open to the flow.
I made it home safe and am taking the day to restore some energy & reflect on my lessons of the last three days.
It all happened because of the simple act(s) of giving AND receiving, which seem to me included in the many aspects of love.
Thank you for sharing the Love <3
Thanks to the kindness & amazing generosity of Sing & Joellen as well as all the positive vibes from the rest of you, Enuf & I are mobile again!
Sing gifted me an alternator, his time and his expertise, while Jo swooped in & closed the chapter with a flair all her own. I am grateful to them both.
One of the blessing(s) of this 'delay' is that my boys and I have been able to spend more time together & for that, there are no words, only love <3
Visions of Human Kindness...
Sing just 'happened' to have an alternator for Enuf & came back this morning before his work to try & put it in for me. Apparently his son failed to return a couple of tools that would've made it easier for him to install, lol :) and he ended up running out of time. It is Mostly in at this point.
I told him he is now a part of my story & that I am eternally grateful for his kindness. He said that it wasn't anything, that we should help each other when we can :') <3
I don't have much money on me, enough for gas to make it home is all (if she gets all the way fixed that is) but when I offered it to him, even insisted, he refused.
So, although Sing offered to come back after his all day shift with UPS, I would like to see if I can make it work before then. If anyone has the tools & willingness to continue installing this gifted alternator, I would be truly grateful and willing to pay what I have which is $40
If not, the sunflowers may have more lessons to share ;)
Stay human my fellow beings of light :)
