I want to swim naked in that stream
Saw this sign at a store recently
Yes, I made that my title. I want to swim naked in that stream and I say loosely "that stream" meaning any stream, including any river, any lake, any ocean, and whatever any other body of water that looks tempting enough for me to jump in. I do not really care if there might be a gator nearby, or shrimp jumping around, or even a snake or 2 roaming around near. I am not that scared person that would be deterred by a few animals. Unless of course there are piranhas or leeches in them there waters. I just said I wasn't scared but definitely not stupid. If there is a body of water that looks refreshing and inviting, and without a no trespassing sign, then guess what .. I am jumping in. Not necessarily naked though. That was a drawing in agent to get you to read this. Did it work? But yeah I'll probably be naked! The point that I was trying to originally make is that I am going to do what I want to. I don't have to do something that I don't want to do anymore. I am going to be free to explore and discover things. I will be free of confinement and stress. I am hoping I encourage others to live a simpler life without drama and pressure. I am ready to live my life and enjoy my surroundings. I am ready!!!! Are you ready to live your life? Most of the people I have told about my upcoming adventures have said that they wish they could do what we are about to do, and I have repeatedly said the same thing to them, "why not?". What is your roadblock? What is your excuse? What holds you? Why can't you go and drive to the next state to find another waterfall? Have you traveled enough to satisfy your yearning for learning? I know I haven't so that is why I am ready to see the beauty that this world has to offer. Starting with the good ole US of A! So if you ever travel to the part of this world that I have been to and you see a stream or a lake, I want to you ask yourself, "did Janille swim there?" Over and out for now. Happy hunting happiness!!!!
Let me start by saying that I love Charleston. I really do. I love Charleston. Who wouldn't love Charleston? It has been voted number one city in the world like 4 times now, best food city two times, and believe me Charleston deserves it. The people are wonderful, courteous, and compassionate. Charleston has recently been tested with how we pull together as people here. The Charleston 9 fire, the Emmanuel church shooting, the police shootings, all test. There were outsiders who came to our city and tried to get everyone to protest and cause a fuss, well guess what, you were told by us to get out and don't try that shit here! The people here truly stick together, whites, blacks, every race! And the city's architecture is beautiful with deep ties in history. It is full of great food and restaurants, great landmarks, and surrounded by waterways that keep going.
So why am I leaving? Because the word has gotten out and everyone knows how beautiful it is here and how great…
The manned rocket may fly high to the sky today. Let's celebrate and gather by the thousands to cheer on the future destroyers of Earth, us. Hooray!! Now don't get me wrong, I've been pretty ignorant over the years and was a cloned robot like the many others and gathered outside to witness a spectacular thing and said my ohhhs and awwwhhhsss without thinking about the damage that is being done each and every time something is flung through our ozone, our atmosphere, our protective air layer. Do you know how many satellites are in our atmosphere? Do you know how big the International Space Station is and how many trips it took to take all the parts there? Google that shit. Now. Stop reading and Google "how many satellites are in outer space"... there's a bunch. I appreciate the Awesomeness of it, I really do, it's cool. I've scheduled trips over the years to visit my mama in Florida around the shuttle and rocket launches and a number of them have been…
I feel that when I'm outside my mind is clear and at ease. Just being around trees and beautiful flowers make my soul feel great. I know there are many others that feel the same way that I do. I do right now have the luxury of walking around downtown Charleston in the early morning when there are no cars or people around. The historic buildings are interesting, but I prefer the random gardens, the window boxes with flowers, and the hidden alleyways with nature peeking out and trying to survive in little cubbies. I try and get a jog in while I venture through all the streets I've been down many times, but it is hard to jog when there is another flower that needs me to remember it. So I stop and take a picture to preserve the beautiful images I get to experience. I love the smell of nature, and I am very grateful for this small gift that was given to me. Who wouldn't be happy to smell a hibiscus with the early morning dew on it? I'm grateful for my sight (half-ass visio…
