The most important thing to remember is we can reclaim our lives whenever we want. Learn more in Reclaiming-Our-Lives-Bob Davis Podcast 960.

Take It Back

Second of all why don’t we take our lives back?

Certainly it’s complicated. Jobs. Kids. Goals. Stuff. Plans.

Complicated Methods For Simplifying Your Life

And I know there’s all kinds of help and methods for simplifying your life.

Moreover there are so many ‘simplify your life’ plans and suggestions, there are even whole books available on the subject.

I Have A Simple Plan

Burn it.

Throw it away.

Give it away.

All of it.

Now.

I Did It!

In the same vein that is exactly what I have done.

In addition it feels great.

Method To The Madness

To clarify I’ve done all this for a reason. The next chapter of my life and these podcasts is about to begin.

Extreme Steps

During the whole clean up effort before a move on my end, I planned the next step.

In addition it’s an extreme step.

And it will rock.

Bored With Everything?

Above all much of my boredom and restlessness recently has to do with the present media situation and how it covers the so called news. Even more, how it covers and talks about everything.

America Is In High Anxiety About The Future

Likewise many of my friends have indicated a high level of anxiety about the future.

Likewise and especially how our media talks about the cartoon show we call politics and news.

Time To Change Focus

To sum up this podcast, I’m not going to say what I am going to do just yet, but it will change the focus of the podcasts slightly.

Taking Action

I can say that I am not going to sit here and do nothing.

I’m taking action.

I’m reclaiming my life

Dynamic Content

Finally I look forward to more dynamic content in these podcasts after what we laughingly refer to as an election.

In conclusion I’ve talked about reclaiming the spirit and passion of my life for along time.

Starting Over

After getting rid of everything I can barely wait to start all over again.

Podcast 535

Sturgis 2016 & The Black Hills. A trip to Sturgis 2016 turns into a tour of the Black Hills. Lots of riders come up here for the motorcycle rally but they head out on day trips to the many historic and interesting places in the Black Hills. Deadwood, and of course Mount Rushmore to name two. Lots of history in the Black Hills, especially in Deadwood. In Sturgis 2016 & The Black Hills I stop in Deadwood and have a great conversation about the history of the town, the history of the West and what it meant then and today, with a local historian in character as ‘Colorado Charlie Utter’. Then it’s onto Mount Rushmore and Keystone, South Dakota. A listener to the Bob Davis Podcasts emailed recently to suggest that some of the political podcasts contained some ‘repetitive thoughts’, as she put it. It seems like, when you talk about politics these days in any form, you come to an impasse and it’s almost always about the voters, or the political parties, or the candidates or the media and the fact that almost everyone is disappointed in the choices they have. The great thing about coming to Sturgis, and by extension these other cool places in the Black Hills, is that you forget about politics. It took awhile to come up with a theme for Sturgis 2016 & The Black Hills, Podcast 535 but it finally came to me. With all the talk about the founding fathers and the US Constitution, maybe it’s time for a new myth, a new ‘theme’ from American History. The fact is, the story told by the dime western novels, Hollywood and later TV pales in contrast to the real history of the west. The Hollywood version of the west made it seem like it all happened in Zane Grey’s Arizona, or the Sierra Nevada’s or California. Part of Western History did take place in those places in the late 1800’s and even early 1900’s. Many characters and themes later portrayed in Hollywood Westerns and popular TV shows happened a lot sooner – in the 1870’s – in places like Deadwood. Independence, self reliance, working harder and smarter and the opportunity to reinvent yourself, and to jettison your past are all themes that echo throughout the region’s history and across the area from Deadwood and Rapid City, to Mount Rushmore. As Colorado Charlie suggests maybe that inclusive, opportunistic theme is what’s missing a lot of times in the rest of America. Sponsored by X Government Cars and Brush Studio in The West End.
