The Workman is worthy of his meat, and presumably a place to sleep. Jesus. I am such a Workman. It will be interesting when one of the places that I respectfully select to sleep decides otherwise. It hasn't happened yet. And I think it is a gift to offer each place the opportunity to make that decision.


Two or four Sheriff's passed me today.

 If I could capture a photo I probably would not, out of respect. I think it's the sacred encounter. Each time they're given opportunity to think, what the f*** should I do? In each time, so far, they decide, he's not hurting anybody, it's about Jesus it seems, I suppose I should just keep on driving past.

A marathon, I run the calorie equivalent of 1 1/2 every day, the joy and that is what?

 Four years my mission has caused me to try and learn how to move myself and a heavy object 40 miles a day everyday. And dutifully I've stayed at the task. Many times I have thought I had learned a lot, and every time I was correct, but that's different than saying I was at the Pinnacle. I Experience being at the Pinnacle now, or very close there to. Logs of the last days speak of this.

NNo question I have been growing tremendously in my cycling ability, and the suffering to do so has been enormous. So what?

SSoul and I are doing about 40 miles a day, in Fairly good solar conditions but the wind is beginning to get a bit adverse. A routine right now is to try and hit Krogers between 11 and 8 in the evening then they have their $5 meals and the ladies that serve them tend to be extremely generous. Chicken sadly, and potatoes and corn. In much better solar conditions this wouldn't be necessary, Crock-Pot would be sufficient, but energy for cooking is a little on the scare side.

II think what I'm doing is absolutely crazy, crawling across the country at 40 miles a day, killing myself, it just seems more sane than anything else I can think to do, sharing about eight pieces of the scripture that the man Jesus probably actually said, about how to find joy in this life. Which works for me.


These shoes look previously owned, does that affect the price, James asked? Reese said, try them on and see if they fit first....

 At least eight times if not a dozen James has checked Amazon where previously he has succeeded in purchasing clipless cycling shoes. But along with all other  bike parts the flood of cycling purchases with the beginning of covid has emptied the pipeline and just nothing suitable is available.

James has been able to keep cycling because of some wonderful bike shops but they're not all great, some of them are really snooty, enough, that James finds it distasteful and he tries to avoid them.

pedaling for many hours every day he has wanted to replace the cycling shoes that burned up with the rest of Sol. 

In this town here in Tennessee he would not have guessed it was a cycling Mecca but he noticed a bike shop on the right hand side and chose to stop in.

A cheerful young man emerged from the back, and listened carefully as James explained he was looking for an affordable pair of clipless shoes that he could wear all day long.

Within moments Reese had me trying on $100 pair which James knows is a very affordable price point. But Reese said, I'm going to go in the back and see what else we have. 

The ones I was trying on were very acceptable but they lacked the tread for all-purpose shoes but they were fine.

Though they were a little bit narrow, though the socks I was wearing were a bit thick because it was cold up in the mountains two days ago.

Try these on if you like, Reese said. Only with casual interest, because they looked like great shoes, James said, they look previously used does that affect the price? He was eagerly trying them on as he asked. See if they fit and then we'll discuss it. 

perfect James said. 

They're yours, Reese replied. I like what you're doing. I like your vehicle.

Among the followers of Jesus they said, if you would follow what Jesus said it's going to cost you everything material in life, everything. But it will give you a hundredfold in this life, and I'm certain what they meant was, the few lives Souls will be found much more frequently. What a joy.
