The Wrack Line and Oregon Beaches

Wrack Line Blog "about" and "AD policy" can be found below the picture.        What's a "Wrack Line"

What's NEW in the Wrackline blog?

NEW Tracks: "Jimmie's Top 500 Ambients" (originally "Jimmie's Top 250 Ambients"). 18 new tracks have been added, for an actual total of 555!

NEW ESSAY: "Guilty until proven innocent" It used to be that we were all "Innocent Until Proven Guilty". In many cases nowadays, it's the other way around.

UPDATED: "Digging up grass". Considerable re-write, with new pictures of the finished river rock makeover for my lawn.

NEW: "Growing Bluberries". The single page "Growing Berry Plants" has been replaced by two expanded and more comprehensive articles.

NEW: "Growing Strawberries". Also extracted from the original "Growing Berries", and expanded.

UPDATED: the "Got Acute Trigs? Need More Tips?" section under "Eliminate Muscle Pain" Added a new list of key steps for releasing trigger points.

RECENT: "Wishlist for new homes This is a very comprehensive list of "big" things like a Kitchen Pantry, as well as "little" things like full-length drawer slides for kitchen drawers, or hanging rods in the laundry room, or lights on stairways.

RECENT: "Compounding Your Own" Psoriasis sufferers: if you have a prescription for Coal Tar ("LCD") ointment, and are tired of searching for pharmacies who do "compounding", do it yourself! I explain how.

RECENT: "Tips on using the iPhone Camera" Make use of the Little Yellow Rectangle. Learn how to "stop down" for more dramatic pictures. Lock the focus and exposure. Plus two VERY useful gadgits.

Check out "The Standard Superhero Plot"! It's a spoof on Superhero movies, since every superhero movie has essentially the SAME plot! Look in "Essays".

Updated Weekly: "Entries from Jimmie's Journal." The home page will feature a quote from my journals, which span from 1975 to the present. It is hoped that these little quotes may lead to a little extra depth of feeling for you, and that some of them might even lead to a greater understanding of our relationship to the Universal Consciousness. And also, some of 'em are for just for the sake of humor! There's also a "Previous Journal Entries" link for past quotes. This is also updated weekly (unless, of course, yours truly is busy fiddling with home improvement or landscaping projects!)

12/6/2009: Our consciousness and the Consciousness of the Cosmos
 In the Science of Mind "Year of Daily Wisdom", for 12/5: "Hermes tells us that Spirit has everything in Itself as thought, that the whole cosmos itself is a thing of consciousness".
 Then on the 12/6 lecture we have: "As consciousness extends its vision it extends the possibility of its objective experience" (this "meditation" is talking about expanding our life and accomplishments by envisioning more, by "pushing out the horizons" of our previous experience).
 So two thoughts arise from this chance juxtaposition of insights:
 We create by our consciousness, in the same manner as the Spirit of the Cosmos creates by Its consciousness. That is, if we say that we are participants in the Universal Consciousness, that we are Spirit interpreting the Earth as us, then the words and we state about our lives are spoken with the same authority as the words of the Timeless Formless One when it spoke the words of Creation.
 Spirit’s self-awareness and consciousness constantly expands, and this expansion is creation. The Cosmos is the result of the Consciousness of Spirit.

OK. Maybe three thoughts:
We are the means by which the Great Spirit expands its Consciousness in Space/Time. That is, Spirit creates form (paintings, stories, architecture, music, and the like) through each of us. We are the aperture of the Cosmos.

Wrackline "about":

The Wracklineblog started with the "Hwy 101 Beaches" links. These lead to individual pages covering more than 70 beaches from Astoria, Oregon down to Brookings, Oregon. Each page has beach/park information, usually a picture of the entrance sign, and one or more scenic pictures taken by the author.        Here's an illustrated sample

 However, the Wracklineblog has expanded, and now has photography tips, an exhaustive list of the most moving ambient music, and a growing health/nutrition section, with vegetarian recipes and nutrition information, and various essays, including the newly-added "excerpts from Jimmie's Journals". Some "HTML coding" references and a cool HTML color tool have also been added.

Wrackline "AD Policy":

NO ads! NOTHING that moves! Period.
 However some of the sections have links that will allow you to purchase books and/or other items. For example, the Photography Tips section offers links to purchase the cameras/lenses that were used to create all the pictures in the blog. If you have an interest for any of these books or items, purchasing them by way of these links will provide a little extra income for the author, who is retired.
 NOTE: Clicking on these Amazon links takes you to the same location that you would get if you searched for and clicked on yourself. The security level is the same, and there is no difference in price. Amazon has an "Associates" package, in which Amazon itself pays a small percentage to the referring web site.
