Out Our Way:

May has turned out to be the busiest month of the year so far! Got an offshore consulting contract doing tech writing job. It's over now, but I was on a dynamically positioned drilling rig in 6800 feet of water in the Gulf of Mexico. That job's thankfully over. As soon as I started the job, Doyle and his new bride Norma came to town and were staying in their motorhome a few miles away from us. So we were socializing with them in between my crunching all day at the keyboard. whew!

This month has been cool and dry, a great time for working in the yard. Our grandson Chris came over and helped add dirt to the gardens around the edge of Timberlane. Our new Celeste fig tree got an honored spot in the southeast corner where when its southern branches extend out they will come to rest on the fence to support the tree. (Our previous two fig trees fell over due to the southern branches imbalance that develops over time.)

Del has been home between consulting jobs to assist with the gardens as well as taking her share of duties at the Planning Workstation (our hammock). Here's the result of one of my recent work shifts at the Planning Workstation. While Doyle and his new bride were in town, I called Judy Wood at WWOZ and asked her to play a song for the newlyweds. Judy chose the following song, without asking or telling me, "At the Foot of Canal St." by John Boutte. That was so appropriate because I'd told Norma about that very song the night before when we were together in Bobby Jeaux's Kitchen for dinner. I explained that "foot of Canal St." meant the Canal Street Cemetary area, what Krauss was ( a downtown department store), etc. Now she was hearing it and the DJ (Judy) came on and said, "that last song was for the newlyweds Norma and Doyle Henderson." Doyle was flabbergasted, Norma told us the next morning! So was I! How did Judy know? How did I know to tell Norma last night? Must have been those hours I spent planning.

We were invited to Bill Stulb's Oakridge block party off Metairie Road, and we took Doyle and Norma with us. We dug potatoes and picked green beans in my dad's garden and I came home and cooked them. Called Doyle and said, "Remember all the times we were emailing between New Orleans and Big Bear, how we talked about being neighbors chatting at the cyber-fence? And how I'd bring you food I'd just cooked to the cyber-fence? Well, the cyber-fence is close enough for you to have some real food. We're bringing supper over to you tonight." And we enjoyed the green beans and potatoes over rice, fixed just like my beloved mother used to fix when I was a kid.

On another night Del and I went with them to Sal's Seafood on Barataria Boulevard in Marrero. This was a place that Doyle Henderson and his bride Norma found. When you sit down, they cover the table with newspaper, and then they pile 20 lbs of bright red boiled crawfish in the middle for starters. They discovered this place and were delighted to show it to us. Afterwards we drove them to the French Quarter, had cafe au lait and beignets [ban -yays] at Cafe du Monde, walked down Bourbon Street, peeked in on Preservation Hall to see the Jazz Band playing to a full house of foot stomping and clapping jazz fans. We drove out to Lake Pontchartrain and drove along the night-time Lakeshore drive, through City Park and the large spreading 300 year old oak trees, down St. Charles Ave past glittering leaded glass doors of the mansions along the streetcar line. Drove around to show them where the first Doyletics Conference will be. They fell in love with this wonderful city of New Orleans.

I came back from my final trip to the offshore oil rig with enough information to complete the procedure project and we took off for a Mother's Day trip to Alexandria, complete with a grand-daughter's baseball game, a grandson's birthday party, a large crawfish boil, and a Mother's Day dinner on Sunday in honor of Del. In previous years, we've honored our mothers on Mother's Day - this was the first year where Del's three children came together to honor Del.

No sooner had the Hendersons moved on in their motorhome, did we get notice that Georgia and Bob were finally coming to town from Phoenix for a week and we were going to bepart of the fun. But first we had a weekend at Gulf Shores for just me and Del planned. We sunned and swam in the Gulf of Mexico and mostly relaxed. Bought a week in a new Coopershare Resort a few steps in the white beach sand away from the water's edge.

Georgia arrived first and she and I had dinner at Midi - the Provencal restaurant in the Le Meridien Hotel downtown. Then we met their Phoenix area friends, Don and Denise, and the six of us invaded Sal's for crawfish, shrimp, crabs, corn-on-the-cob, sweet potato pie and bread pudding. Before they left town we served them a mandala salad and redfish courtboullion in Bobby Jeaux's Kitchen topped off by a toast with Cherry Bounce made on the premises.

Del and I attended our Anam Cara meeting which we began by my reading "A Friendship Blessing." ('anam cara' is Celtic for 'soul friend') I'd like to close this month's "On A Personal Note" by sharing with you, dear Reader, that wonderful blessing by John O'Donohue from his book "Anam Cara" (reviewed this month, see below):

May you be blessed with good friends.
May you learn to be a good friend to yourself.
May you be able to journey to that place in your soul where

there is great love, warmth, feeling, and forgiveness.
May this change you.
May it transfigure that which is negative, distant, or cold in you.
May you be brought in to the real passion, kinship, and
affinity of belonging.
May you treasure your friends.
May you be good to them and may you be there for them; may they bring you
all the blessings, challenges, truth, and light that you need
for your journey.
May you never be isolated.
May you always be in the gentle nest of belonging with your
anam cara.

During the coming months of summer, many Louisianians will be thinking ahead and planning for the fall and winter months that bring their favorite sport back to them: duck hunting. Here's a story of one such duck hunter who loves the sport so much, well, he hunts like his ancestors did.

Theophile, a Cajun from down around Point au Chien, one summer's day, went to the Sheriff in Houma and said to him, "Mon ami, can I axe you a question? Ah was wondering me, can we have another month of duck hunting?"

The sheriff looked at Theophile and says, "Mon Cher, you already hunt ducks 12 months a year - if we gave you another month, we'd have to come up with a new name for it!"

[As told by the great storyteller, Justin Wilson on his cooking show, 10/8/2000.]

Thanks to all of you who have made this site a success. We have had over 20,000 Visitors to the Doyletics Website since its inception in June, 2000, but we need your help to continue to grow.

If you haven't yet made a connection to the Doyletics website from your own website and would like to, there's instructions on how to do it in Section 9, Closing Notes below.

If you haven't read the Counselor's Corner lately, there is some new material at the top of the page called: Questions from a Counselor: What if Feelings Don't Clear During a Trace?

The following was from a dialogue with a counselor who has had great success with the speed trace but had two questions about clients who seemed to go back to before conception while doing traces. In this conversation I develop further my concept that only two requirements are necessary to do a successful speed trace and relate them to the two requirements necessary for an automobile to start. Read it all at:

Thanks to the efforts of our "Crocodile Samdi" down under (Sam DiChiera), the Website Cobbling Calebrese and Master Vintner, we now have a Real Player video of the Second Lorena Speed Trace of her Roller Coaster fear doyles. That will require a 5 Mb download of Real Player if you don't already have it set up plus a 8.9 Mbyte of the full speed trace. For a glimpse of the beginning of the trace, we have an MPEG clip of a portion of the same Speed Trace, and it doesn't require a special player to view. The Live Speed Trace with Lorena Castro was done at El Paso Community College on June 19, 2000. Special thanks also go to Prof. Roméo Di Benedetto and Daniel Matt (Director of the Center for Instructional Television, EPCC) for permission to show this clip on The Mplayer file is 1.6 Mbytes long so plan for it to take about 4 mins. on a 57K modem to load. Once it loads you can save it locally to view multiple times. The Real Player file is 8.9 Mb and will take about 15 mins. to load before viewing and you won't be able to save the file for later viewing. Check out the Preview at this page:

7. REVIEWS and ARTICLES for June:
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

And for my Good Readers, here’s the new reviews and articles for this month. The ARJ2 ones are new additions to the top of A Reader’s Journal, Volume 2, Chronological List, and the ART ones to A Reader’s Treasury.

1.) ARJ2: The Redemption of Meaning — The Philosophy of Thomas Aquinas by Rudolf Steiner

Some of you may have bought into various aspects of Logical Positivism or Existentialism without being aware of it - something that is easy to do in the materialistically minded world in which we live on the brink of the Third Millennium. Therefore you would be well served to read this passage from the Introduction:

[page 12-13] In the realm of thought, two modern philosophies, Logical Positivism and Existentialism, both bear witness to the influence of materialism. Logical Positivism carries Nominalism to its extreme conclusion, while Existentialism shows the bewilderment of being aware of the inadequacy of a materialistic philosophy to explain the self-evident facts of man's being, without having the understanding of spiritual reality which would provide the true explanation of them.

Read the Review at:

2.) ARJ2: Anam Cara — A Book of Celtic Wisdom by John O'Donohue

In this book, O'Donohue leads us to a personal experience of Celtic wisdom and understanding. Anam Cara means "soul friend" and by the end of this book, you will understood what that means and feel like you have found one in John O'Donohue. He writes with lyrical flights of fancy that are insightful and soul-feeling.

[page 22] When you find the person you love, an act of ancient recognition brings you together It is as if millions of years before the silence of nature broke, your lover's clay and your clay lay side by side.

My reviews are not intended to replace the purchasing and reading of the reviewed books, but rather to supplant a previous reading or to spur a new reading of your own copy. What I endeavor to do in most of my reviews is to impart a sufficient amount of information to get the reader comfortable with the book so that they will want to read it for themselves. My Rudolf Steiner reviews are more detailed and my intention is bring his work to a new century of readers by converting his amazing insights into modern language and concepts.

It is important that we have your First Name, so if the name you are addressed by in your Reminder is not your first name, please notify us of the name you wish us to use. For convenience you can send a quick email to give us your name by Clicking Here. To Contact Bobby, his Email address is visible on this page.

NOTE: As of 2018 the List messages are NO LONGER READABLE!

Please do your part by letting us know of any email address change so that you may continue receiving the DIGESTWORLD Reminders. Most of our Readers come from folks who don't get these Reminders, but we offer the DIGESTWORLD Reminder as a service to our regular Good Readers. To send us your new email address, CLICK HERE! .
