Reflections-From-The-Desert-Bob Davis Podcast 1075

Reflections From The Desert

Firstly the desert is a perfect place for reflection. Learn more in Reflections-From-The-Desert-Bob Davis Podcast 1075.

Creative Process

Secondly what’s your creative process?

Certainly there’s a lot to discuss about creative process in this podcast.

Free Wheeling Discussion

And a lonely desert with a campfire is the perfect spot for a free wheeling discussion.

Slow Is Fast

Above all I have learned working slowly is actually working fast.

And thorough.

Hyper Person

Of course people have thought of me as a hyper person.

One Thing At A Time

But in fact I like to work on one thing at a time and follow it through.

Stacking Creative Projects

Therefore stopped down in the desert means working on a writing project I’ve given myself.

As well as these podcasts.

Podcast Ideas

In fact developing unique ideas for the podcasts can be difficult these days.

Social Scrim

That is to say my listeners and subscribers know I refuse to get in the political social scrim.

Deeper Issues

However I do feel that advancing the story means talking about deeper issues.

Recent Podcasts Have Been Heavy

As a result some of the podcasts recently have been pretty heavy.

Time for an easy talker.

Campfire

So a campfire is just the ticket.

Structure

I also sum up the structure of my days out here.

Fuel Prices

Due to high fuel prices most nomads I know are hunkered down for the winter.

Southwestern Arizona

In fact Southwestern Arizona is perfect.

Perfect Fall Day

For example now that the monsoon is over everyday out here is like a perfect fall day in the Upper Midwest.

For the rest of the winter.

Channels Of Thought

Most importantly writing in addition to podcasting changes the channels of thought in a good way.

And I think will result in a sense of accomplishment after the winter months pass.

Second Year Anniversary

In short as I come up on the anniversary of a second year of nomad travel there’s a lot to talk about.

First Year

Finally the first year seemed to be in almost constant movement.

Second Year

On the other hand the second year has been a completely different vibe.

Experiences

In conclusion the great thing about nomad life is the experiences the nomad gives himself.

Colorado-Abundance-Bob Davis Podcast 1060

Colorado Abundance

Firstly talking about Colorado and Abundance these days is a little strange. Learn more in Colorado-Abundance-Bob Davis Podcast 1060.

Scarcity?

Secondly given all the problems we’re dealing with maybe I should do a podcast about scarcity.

But I don’t feel that way.

What Is Important

Above all in these difficult times we all have to assess what is actually important.

Not About Material Possessions

And I don’t think of abundance as being related to material goods.

A Lot Of Something

Certainly the word abundance means a lot of something. Anything.

Keep It Simple

Most importantly I have come to believe that if you appreciate what you have and keep things simple you will feel abundance.

Even Austere

That is to say a sense of comfort and having a lot of what you need.

Pressure Cookers

Of course living in a pressure cooker because you have to pay bills doesn’t contribute to a sense of safety or abundance.

Less Is Indeed More

On the other than it is a surprise to have learned through the nomad experience the less I have the more abundant I feel.

Losses

For example we have all dealt with the loss of loved ones in the last couple of years.

Left Behind

Even more we often find ourselves overwhelmed by how much is left behind.

Is This Important?

Therefore one wonders whether any of this stuff is important?

Keep It Simple

Meanwhile many people are downsizing and simplifying.

Pop Culture Goes Dark

In the same vein “abundance” used to be a big word in pop culture.

You don’t see it as much these days.

Rich?

In addition if abundance is defined as being rich many of us are going to feel like we have fallen behind.

Not At The Gas Pump

Moreover one needs only one trip to the gas station to feel poor.

What I Need

Meanwhile as I camp and roll through Colorado and the rest of the Southwestern US I find myself getting what I need, when I need it.

Million Dollar View

Furthermore many million dollar views and experiences in the forests and campgrounds often for free.

Too Beautiful For Words

Finally some of these experiences are too beautiful for words.

Choice

In conclusion real freedom is being able to choose the experiences we have.

Breakout

In short we don’t have to live in a prison we created.

Escape

There are lots of ways to escape.

Nomad-Setbacks-New-Adventures-Bob Davis Podcast 1049

Nomad Setbacks and New Adventures

Firstly every now and then there are setbacks and new adventures for nomads. They’re unavoidable. Not fun when they happen though. Status update from the road in Nomad-Setbacks-New-Adventures-Bob Davis Podcast 1049.

Still On The Road? Everything Is Fine

Secondly as long as your rig isn’t at the bottom of a lake or ravine everything is fine.

Emergency Fund

Certainly you’ll have to pay.

And you know that.

Not The End Of The World

But it’s not the end of the world.

How Could This Have Happened?

Even more you kick yourself wondering how ‘this’ could have happened.

Law Of Fast Forgetting

Therefore it’s normal to get down on yourself when the law of fast forgetting is in effect.

Get Your Road Chops Back

In other words if you stayed in one place all winter and weren’t on the road there are things we all get used to doing on the road.

Easy To Forget

It’s easy to forget these things when you start traveling again.

Grand Entrance

For example making a grand entrance by driving down what looked like a shallow hill.

Turns Into A Sand Dune

However that shallow hill was a sand dune.

Time For A Tow Truck

Meanwhile as I waited for the inevitable two truck to pull me out I got philosophical.

Learn and Relearn

After that it was an evening of talking about how often we learn and relearn life lessons very quickly out here.

Life Lessons Take Time

That is to say sometimes life lessons take years to incorporate.

Learning Faster In Nomadland

In short the same lesson that takes years can take a few minutes out here.

Grateful

Finally I am grateful to be on the road again.

Interrupting My Reverie

Certainly I hate it when my reverie is interrupted by some stupid act.

But all is well.

Not A Bowl Of Cherries

To sum up nomad life isn’t a bowl of cherries.
