On Board the Free Train
Another person who recently gave up money contacted me a couple weeks ago! His name is elf Pavlik, in Germany. That makes three moneyless folks in Europe, that I know of, I've been in contact with (Heidemarie Schwermer in Germany and Mark Boyle in the UK). There's also another guy named Aiden in South Africa who recently started living without money for five years (though he does raise money for causes & advertises for businesses). There are a couple others who have contacted me who I think may have given up money, I think in the USA, but I've lost their emails in all the craziness. Hopefully I can find them again.
Dancing with Viruses
Weeks ago, I got sick again, for the second time this winter. This time I had some kind of flu with a bronchial infection. Just when I was bragging about how I don't get sick! Funny, just days before I got a mucousy cold the first time, I found several boxes of kleenex in a dumpster. Just days before I got sick the second time with a mucousy flu, I found several boxes of kleenex in another dumpster. Never before had I found kleenex in dumpsters. Each time I was grateful. But then it got me thinking: would I have gotten sick had I not found the kleenex? Maybe that kind of thinking is superstitious. But in this lifestyle, I keep learning, over and over, a law of attraction: for every positive in the universe, a negative comes to meet it. For every problem, a solution comes to meet it, and vise versa.
My next adventure was a ride to Provo with Damian for two reasons: to attend a lecture of my archaeo-astronomer friend, John McHugh, and to do a talk to some anthropology classes at Salt Lake Community College about my moneyless "anthropological experiment." I had been invited months ago by Jude Higgins, the professor. Before I gave the talks, she came and met me at John's archaeoastronomy lecture (John's the one who has found evidence that the stories in the Bible and Quran are based on star constellations that go back to Babylon, Sumer, and possibly before). John's lecture was totally intriguing, and Jude may have him talk to her classes sometime, too.
