Flying on the Wings

by Nomad on April 17, 2013

It is so funny how I am able to find the Irony in things.

So rather than having to push someone off the building (because I’m not jumping), decided to prepare for a trip to Find Paradise.

Then I’m stopped in my tracks as I realize my Passport only has 3 places left for stamps.  Oh no some countries will not allow you entry with less than two pages.  So I was looking for a way do a quick turn around for adding pages.  I feel like I should get a some kinda of a badge or trophy for finishing my Passport Book :-)  Hence the Name of the Website… I’m Just Saying.

So perfect that there is a passport office in Dallas about 3 blocks form my hotel. Thats great because if you havent been to Dallas keep in mind it could take you 2 days to drive from one part of DFW area to the other.

So you only visit the passport office by appointment if you have evidence of a departure that is less that 2 weeks away.  Passport Office Appointments

I have 3 days so lets be snappy.

The lady says Sir why don’t you get a new passport,  :-(  I like my Old Model Passport, with no chip).

Kinda took a piece away from me and broke my heart when they stamped it with holes no longer for use :-(

So I need to work on filling up the new one with adventures. I am up for this challenge.

So this is where this story starts -

On the way back from the Passport, I notice a park next to my Hotel, the Fabulous Joule Dallas

This is the park that is within the same view of my room.  Even with unusually cold weather I stopped to take in the park, and noticed a large stone block with an inscription about the park.  This park is dedicated to Pegasus which is also the avatar of the city of Dallas.

Story of Pegasus

Where ever Pegasus, (a winged horse created by Medusa) would touch the ground Nine Muses would bring creativity, celebration and a Spring Water Well would appear in that spot.

Back in High School, I remember protesting European Literature  Class because I wanted to read more worldly peices.  My teacher who became one of my favorite instructors and a friend,  (Mr. Ed Webbely) explained to me that weather I like it or not it would be powerful to intelligently argue my points.  I agreed and took the course and grew to enjoy Beowulf, Illiad and the Oddessy as well as many other great readings.

I found this story of Pegasus interesting as I thought about flying and how much time I spend in the air. I love a life in the clouds.  At some point I should try to calculate the hours.

Hi Life

I also noticed that this is the same view I see looking down from my guest room. I enjoyed the view of the city and the park but found that I enjoyed it even more after knowing the signifance.

My Room 2nd down from the left, right between these columns.

As I started to take photos of the park something even more ironic happened, by mistake the iPhone camera was facing me rather than what I was trying to take a photo of.  When I notice the shirt I was wearing low and behold I’m wearing a shirt with wings.  I had to laugh at this, an on looker glanced as if I was a mad man.  I found it so funny that it was like myself and my day was all tied into this park.

Take a look at my photos and remember to stop and consider your surroundings.

It is Truly a Small World and I’m Happy To Be Witness of this Path I’m On.

A Crazy change of events, allows to dance to one of my favorite songs Live in San Diego California.

My day started at 3am with a wake up call about Corporate Cotton that needed to be sowed, yeah 3am Cotton Pickin. Only took me a few minutes to resolve, but rather than going back to sleep I decided stay up so that I could stack bails while its quite.
The day stretched out to be  13 hours of great Cotton Pickin fun. Thank goodness for Hotels that have black out curtains. I knocked out for a bit then woke up and remembered it was Thirsty Thursday and coming to an end of my stay in SoCal.

After checking with The Force to feel out whats going on in the area I only come up with Someone Spinning Reggae at a Sushi Restaurant thats in an area surrounded by Mexican restaurants. Lets give it a try. After experiencing real Sushi and Japanese food in Japan I really have to laugh when people tell how good sushi is. The musical vibes were great I couldn’t believe the Dj dropped some major tunes. I had to leave because the vibes and the attitude I got from bartender were just sour! Rather than act crazy I just left with the hopes of finding something nice to do for the night.

This is how “OB” Ocean Beach looks during the day.

Well I figured I would head over to Ocean Beach “OB” to check out the scene there. I found a nice parking place but there were a few bar hounds in the way that I had to blow the horn to get them to move. Thinking great now they are gonna want to scratch up my car. Thank goodness its a rental. As I get I’m thinking what are so many people doing out side of this bar anyway, there was a descent crowd. I look at the small chalk board sign that reads ReBirth Brass Band 9pm to Close. I laugh and say yeah Rebirth who is stealing that bands name. Then I see a dude come out of the place with Big Who Dat Shirt on.

I’m like it cant be…. Sure enough $17 bucks, and I go straight to the dance floor!!! Mind you this is one of my all time favorite band from my home state that I love to watch play. They have one of the best live shows I have seen and they are always good.

This photo captured something?

So I hit the dance floor and find a set of honeys that were down to dance it. Now the type of SoCal moves they had I really could not understand and I think I caught a few elbows. Either way I found what I was ironically looking for. Its really a small world.
