We do not live to think, but, on the contrary, we think in order that we may succeed in surviving.
CONTINUING THIS WEEK ON SERIES, WE ARE DESIGNED TO SURVIVE AND ON LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE. PLUS, THE BOOK TEN-MINUTE RELAXATION FOR MIND AND BODY.
Well, the week-end begins today for some and for others tomorrow.
Either way, Dan and I wish all a wonderful one.
Now shifting to a topic that we are passionate about survival and you are what you eat.
Dan and I have found this to be very interesting.
Continuing from yesterday, toxins are produced in the body from the best of diets as natural by-products of normal metabolism and are eliminated effortlessly by the organs of elimination without the slightest wear and tear.
The toxins that do all the harm leading to premature degeneration and disease are the toxins resultant from eating the wrong food.
These toxins are not the chemicals from additives and poison sprays that are in the food to start with, but they are actually produced within the body as byproducts of the body's efforts to produce pure nourishment from impure materials.
While man-made chemicals in food are undesirable and probably harmful to some extent, so little harm do they cause compared to body-produced toxemia that it is a pointless exercise to be concerned about them without first removing the main factors.
The toxins which are products of normal metabolism arise from two sources;
1. The unwanted by-products of digestive functions which from natural food are of low potency and easily expelled via the kidneys and urine.
2. The waste products of the body's cells which are carried away in the lymph fluid and bloodstream to be expelled via the kidneys (urine), the lungs (carbon dioxide) and the skin (sweat).
AUGUST – 19th, Dan and I thought on continuing this segment with the series with some fun; What is it about August that’s so significant during this month?
World Photo Day – August 19, 2022
We all take pictures!
Into days world, its easy to just pick up our cell phones and take one.
World Photo Day is on August 19 and it celebrates the day when the French government purchased the patent for the daguerreotype process.
The daguerreotype process is a photographic process that creates highly detailed images on a sheet of copper plate with a thin coat of silver.
The day requires participants to share a photo of their world, which can be anything the photographer chooses.
The definition of photography is quite literally drawing the light and British scientist Sir John Herschel came up with it in 1839.
He used the Greek word phōtós, which means light and graphê which means drawing or writing.
Louis Daguerre was born on November 18, 1787, in Cormeilles-en-Parisis, France.
His family was middle-class and he grew up during a time of great political upheaval with the turmoil that was the French Revolution.
The revolution involved the common people versus the bourgeoisie brought on by King Louis XVI’s poor economic policies.
The poor wanted to improve their standard of living, and the ruling class wanted to hold onto the feudal regime.
These events often affect the arts, as it inspires artists to create work that encapsulates the era and for young Daguerre that was drawing.
In 1800, Despite having a limited formal education; Daguerre was a natural artist and at 13 he became apprenticed to an architect where he learned hands-on the mechanics of the art and the science of designing structures.
This created the foundation for his understanding of how objects were built. Just four years later, Daguerre moved to Paris to study and practice scene painting for the opera.
In the early 1820s, Daguerre made a breakthrough.
He and his fellow collaborator invented giant, translucent paintings illuminated to simulate movement and other effects and it was known as the diorama.
Crowds would gather and watch these displays of landscapes and colors.
But in the next decade, he fell on hard times and lapsed into bankruptcy because of the costliness of his invention.
Daguerre had known Joseph Nicéphore Niépce who had produced the world’s first permanent photograph in 1825 to incorporate into his dioramas.
Niépce died in 1833 and Daguerre continued experimenting with photography and his dioramas.
After combining chemicals and silver plates, he came up with the daguerreotype process and patented it in 1839 as a gift to the world.
After this bold union, photography continued to evolve and capture moments of our lives.
In 2010, professional photographer Korske Ara, founded World Photo Day to inspire people to take photos that mean something to them.
So, next time you pick up your cell phones; remember who gave us this gift of pictures.
Time is precious and is priceless, so Dan and I will continue each day to pull from a box of 365 inspirational quotes; one quote and share with you.
VERY LITTLE IS NEEDED TO MAKE A HAPPY LIFE; IT IS ALL WITHIN YOURSELF, IN YOUR WAY OF THINKING.
Continuing from last year the series on LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE, by Elizabeth B. Brown.
Dan and I continue to share ways to benefit and help keep one’s health cells healthy.
A wise man told me ten years ago, when one is in balance with themselves; one stays healthy.

CHAPTER 19; DANCING WITH PORCUPINES (last chapter of the book)
IT TAKES TIME-
Building a whole and healthy relationship is not a linear process.
The relationship with your SUP will move forward.
And move forward again.
The effort can seem overwhelming!
But each time you move ahead, you will feel the lightness of freedom urging you on.
Today Dan and I will be continuing on the book; ten-minute relaxation, For mind and body by Jennie Harding.
Whenever you are feeling under pressure, ten minutes is all you need to relax totally, using tools that are with you at all times; your senses.
This book is packed full of wonderfully simple ideas and exercises for using sight, taste, smell, hearing, and touch and that vital sixth sense of intuition to rebalance your energies and bring you back into harmony with the natural world around you.
Identify your favorite sensory relaxation solutions and combat that stress!
Per Dan and my experience this is another component in keeping ourselves healthy; meditation.
By using your five senses, you can learn to relax in just ten minutes.
CHAPTER 1; WHAT IS STRESS?
SENSORY SUCCESS WITH STRESS
GROWING OLD CREATIVELY-
It is a fact that the population will soon be dominated by those over the age of 50.
With life expectancy increasing well into the 90’s and even beyond.
Working to use and enhance the senses in older people is an approach to care in some residential facilities.
Establishing sensory gardens full of plants that smell, look, feel and even taste good encourages people to spend time outdoors.
Activities like art, painting and sculpture as well as music and dancing keep social skills active.
It also, promotes creativity.
In care homes such as these it is not uncommon to find wonderfully active people with marvelously creative skills, which they are using and enjoying well into their advancing years.
Tomorrow, WORKING WITH NATURE-
The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
WE THINK 💬 INORDER TO SURVIVE
Until Saturday, there’s nothing wrong with struggle.
Anytime I look back at a difficult phase of my life and see what grew out of it,
the creative survival tactics, I think that the good is way better than the bad.
