Uncertain, Texas Audio Journal

Uncertain, Texas

I really need to do these little travel/journal recordings more often. It’s so cool to listen to how you sounded at a given point in time, especially while you’re traveling. Adds so much to have the actual ambient sounds with the recording as well. I can almost feel the mosquitos biting me! ;)

Some personal creative notes while camping in Uncertain, Texas in May of 2014

What exactly makes you happy & gives you ultimate joy?

Happy-Happy, Joy-Joy

Keep trying to answer of what makes me happy. I know when I feel happy, but it’s always fleeting moments. Rarely is that feeling sustained very long. I’m not even sure if that’s really what happiness is. 

When it happens, all thoughts of the past and future fade away. There’s only the moment and all seems like it couldn’t be better. If music is playing, I’ll sing along as loud as I can. I’ll even laugh out loud at how absurd it is that I should be allowed to feel that happy without having done anything to deserve it. Then, my eyes will water a bit once it hit’s the plane of joy. From there, I’ll coast back down to an average plane, still high on the memory of how it felt. 

And, as great as that feels… I’m not sure if I’d want to live like that all the time. Would you? I think eventually, it’d just become the norm. Without any bad times to compare it to, you wouldn’t know how great that feeling is. 

So, I’m wondering if perhaps the peak of emotion that most associate with happiness, is really just joy. And, the pursuit of happiness… is actually more important than any one moment, or material thing you associate with happiness? 

Hmmm… I wonder….

Bored… walking through neighborhood park… decided to make some words on the playground learning gadget. Could my new band name… after I form one that is. Might need to learn how to play or sing something first. Or maybe I can just do abstract knob-twisting ambient stuff & call my virtual band RAW FUN PIG? I dunno, maybe oughta just keep waking & see what other nutty ideas bubble up from the unified field. :)
