Float my Boat – November 11, 2009

“We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same.”

– Carlos Castaneda

This is my last post until the 18th. I am leaving to go to Port Townsend, Washington for Don Tiller’s acrylic workshop. (I am so excited.) Then I’ll take a ferry over to Whidbey Island, to spend a few days with my little sister. Have a good week and I’ll see you when I get back. Happy Veteran’s Day to all of our veterans!

About Carlos Castaneda

Carlos Castaneda, the Peruvian-born new age writer, is known for his book series about his apprenticeship with Don Juan Matus, the Toltec shaman, including A Separate Reality and Journey to Ixtlan. The books are about the nature of perception and include many hallucinatory experiences. It is unknown how much of his writing was factual. He wrote the first three books as an anthropology student at UCLA, and they quickly gained cult success. He was born in 1925 and died in 1998.

For the FCC: I do not receive anything from the manufacturers or suppliers of products mentioned in today’s blog post. I just tell you what I like.
