heading out today for Summer Camping/hiking/music street performance travels

Hope all my friends are well and enjoying Summer- 

I'm driving to the Blue Ridge Mtns & Smoky Mountains- my favorite mountains- I like the Rockies too-

I usually end up all alone listening to the birds and being introspective- try to do some writing if I feel inspired- keep my cool- be a good safe traveler

....been vegan for 7 months now- hope to stay strong in my convictions-

I'm doing it for more than one reason; although I have noticed a healthier glow in my skin- and clearer senses-  improved hearing is important to me for music- I'm 42 now- so- going Vegan will also help discourage Diabetes naturally in the body- and hopefully prevent prostrate issues- I don't like modern day medicine and pills & side effects, personally-

...so I eat a a lot of nuts- for protein- also beans & rice-  and I stock up on organic Veggie soup- so there are no excuses to break my diet out of temptation-   I also quit coffee for 7 months and have found that for me- personally- I don't need the caffeine at all- it throws me off balance-

I've also pretty much eliminated all sugars from my diet aside from natural fruit sugar-

I like Agave Nectar and Honey-   the only problem I'm having is making organic chocolate without MIlk-  I know you can use Coconut butter- but I can only find brands from the Phillipines and Sri Lanka which I believe are too close to Japan and the Fukishima meltdown-   I've been holding out for Florida or California grown Coconut Butter- but cannot find them anywhere~! If anyone has any leads- let me know- I alo immensely luv mushrooms- in a responsible way- I go for the closed eye journey when everything feels right and all is well in the universe; it's like traveling to another dimension~!

I still like Yerba Mate- it has similar properties to coffee- Matteine instead of caffeine- which gives you the pick me upper without the detrimental come down- although it can still make you jittery when using the traditional Gourd and bomdilla straw- (did I spell that right?) 

Yerba Mate is good for blood circulation and curbing hunger too-

No Gatherings for me this year-   No festivals so far either- really sad Asheville, NC has canceled its long running (Bele Chere Festival-) they still have their Friday night drum circles though- so that's always a pleasure to attend and hopefully socialize with cool peacefull Folks-    ...i still remember doing my little street performance ...ah  those were the sonic days~!

I'll have my Djembe along for the journey- I wish I could see Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters- maybe I'll share a link to a great festival I watched recently- check it out~!

I may attend the 2015 Peach Festival in Scranton, PA in MId August- superb classic line-up Folks- highly recommended~!

Peace, Love, Rock & Roll~!
