The "Used Feelings" Lot

The above image is, Vision at Ocean Shores is also available as a Desktop Background

Today's song is Feelings by Morris Albert, released in 1975.

I imagined that in the collective human experience, a Used Feelings Lot exists. It has no bright lights or colorful banners to attract window shoppers. No smooth-talking TV announcers proclaim the deals to be discovered there. There are no "interest-free" specials because almost everyone stopping by has an interest of their own in one way or another.

If you stop by in your dreams and ask one of the staff for help they would direct you to my own related section placed there on consignment. Sometimes while asleep I am transported there for a test-drive of some of the highlights of my life. They know me by name and keep the lights on for me.

It's a huge lot because it contains contributions from most everyone that ever lived. If you're ever there you may look up just about anyone you once knew. Just think about them and you are transported to your joint case-history stored for safe keeping. Just be sure to walk all around to get the complete perspective of the archived record.

Even if some people forget, others remember and can sign the guest book, leaving their own comments for visitors. Nothing is impossible, you might eventually run into a contemporary in contact with someone from the past and be brought up-to-date.

On that last point, I've been personally fortunate in that so many people stop by this web site and write to me. Sometimes they fill-in the gaps or provide added information. I provide the information to the Used Feelings Lot Curator during my next visit while asleep.

Back here in cyberspace, more than once I've been the one to reconnect people. So much so that a few people mistake this web site for the Used Feelings Lot itself. I suppose it's flattering to be compared like that, but I redirect them in the right direction and set them back on the right path to it.


The 4th of July is my favorite holiday. Freedom is a wonderful gift from God, not from any government. Enjoy your freedom in the many forms it takes. Be thankful if you live in a modern society that you aren't forced to think and act in only one way, as if any adult presumes to know what's best for another coherent adult. They don't!


I read this insightful article on Love at First Sight. I never experienced that reaction myself, but I've spoken to those that have. Finding love in any moment is a good thing, in my humble opinion.


This is very good news!

For this summer, I bring back my Digital Insights, some of the motivations I had for my displayed art images. I'll provide one for each home page update until Labor Day then retire them once again.

Plain Freedom (Created in July 2001)

The 4th of July is my favorite holiday. However, I also enjoy the 3rd of July because in 2001 that day brought about an important understanding from events 30 years prior on that same day.

Clarity of purpose is paramount when making important decisions. Actions involving a strong emotional response need to be considered carefully because they can have huge implications downstream if they are misunderstood. Each of us has the freedom to act and that choice should be used wisely.

Do what needs to be done with a docile heart, but do it. Exercise your decisions and appreciate the fact that freedom is the key to action. Using my own words, I quote a portion from that page's narration:

"Enjoy your freedom in every way you find it too!"
