The Wrack Line and Oregon Beaches

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


Check out Jimmie's pan-fried biscuits, in the "Tasty Breakfast Ideas" Category.

New Category: "Quick Nutritious Lunches". Check out "Jimmies Quick Saute" in that page.

Well, I'm back, after a month-long visit to my kids in Texas.

What's NEW in the Wrackline blog?

NEW Addition: "Eliminate muscle pain"!. You CAN eliminate muscle pain, if you are willing to do 10 - 20 minutes of muscle work each day. A pictorial description on this self-applied massage appears under "Health and Nutrition"!

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

NEW: "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.

5/6/2005: Value
 For reasons that I may never understand, my college studies were cut short by "mental issues". So I missed out on the succesful career in science or engineering.
 So for a long time now I have been trying to create something, some body of work, that is valued.
 But what is this “value”? I am finally coming to believe that a person’s value is not dependent on whether or not they have been a success. I have value even if I am a “failure”, or a “loser”.
 And I would even ask further, “value to whom”?
 Am I of value to the Spirit of Existence? I have long since come to believe that we are all of infinite value to Spirit. Why? Because the Spirit creates this warm bright moist green planet out of the eternal cold and wishes to participate in its richness – and the only way It can do so is to give Itself form as us. So Spirit creates each one of us so that It can interpret the Earth, so that It can experience Time.
 Am I of value to others? This is the one that I have been most concerned about, and lately the one that I am beginning to care the least about.
 So there is only one person whose approval I have really been seeking all my life.
 Maybe, sometime before I die, I will finally believe that I am valueable to myself.

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.
