to the chaotic and often strange life of a Quasi, Clumsy Spiritual Warrior, Dan Abernathy. This is the weekly Newsletter where I share with you my voice, be it in words, art, or my collections of oddities, fascinations, desires and obsessions. Here I will make available 98% of all my perspectives, be they fluid and random, meandering and incomplete, or things I have completed and offering. They other 2% I keep to himself, archived and a gift for the scholars and naysayers to decipher later on. This will all be delivered to you via the web, whether I am roaming the road in his converted 1991 International school bus, The Chool Bus, home in Pinedale, Wyoming or briefly hanging my hat in another dusty corner of the world.

Hello This Morning!
“It is my choice alone and no others. I can elect to allow your situation to confine and control me, I can choose to let it define me, or I can make the choice to walk away and leave your situation behind Me. ” - dbA
The Ultimate Goal is Walking the Path of You
Now that I again walk in this segment of me, I find that my ultimate goal is to be at true peace with myself. I want nothing to do with toxicity or negative feelings in my life. My conformant is my defense as I eliminate each one, including the ones that may be buried deep within the person that I am. At the same time, in this now, I must be aware and deflect any new contaminates that may attempt to invade my unruffled thought patterns. My nature is calm, this is the foundation for the space I have created for myself, the euphoric meadow that nurture’s my spiritual growth. I generate a adoring energy for myself and for others, as I balance who I am. My energy absorbed and projecting The 7 Elements of the Essential Way, Calmness, Compassion, Kindness, Forgiveness, Gratitude, Love and Mindfulness. This is my guide on this meandering path I walk. It is my balance, one that I radiate with love and compassion to all that is encountered.
The Chool Bus
Went to a farm auction over the weekend and found a “Must Have Item” for the Chool Bus. As soon as I saw it I knew the place I wanted to install it and with a slight sliver of ingenuity it fit perfectly. Thanks Mika for letting me exploit your number!!

I Cannot Thrive In Blah
Living my life without perfection
is what makes it so wonderful.
I cannot thrive in blah,
So I make the simple,
to follow my heart,
guided by my mind,
they may choose to wander. – dbA
