Gaze on these creations for a minute and take your mind away from the mundane worries it tries to trap you in. Don't sweat the small stuff because all stuff is small stuff.

Have a great day,

A Preview Of Some of My Best of June 2017 Show Artwork





Every month I hope to open a new web gallery showing my picks for the best of the month. This preview does not contain images created this week or next.  Stay tuned for the big announcement and show in June.
Unfortunately I cannot offer wine and nibbles like a physical gallery, but I will be available for your questions. You will not have to be on time or drive anywhere, just take a minute any time during the month to visit.
Hopefully I can offer some music or commentary with the final video. But the images will be the first thing you see on my Web site when it opens. You have a few days left to view the Best of May which is now the first thing you see when visiting www.risingrims.com

Another Method to Save the World

My efforts to date to help the planet and the human race have been limited to using my FileMaker skills for good causes,  managing the student database for the Taoist Tai Chi Society of the USA and teaching Taoist Tai Chi.

I am off on a new direction of improving myself to help influence others to "save the world".  Many people believe that the influence of a few with good vibrations can have a cascading effect to help rid the world of strife, suffering, wars and damaging behavior.

I have been attending a weekly Oneness Blessing circle for the last couple years and took a course called Oneness Awaking a couple times.  I have found this practice has helped me experience "awakened" moments where I am living in the present instead of the constant thought stream of yesterdays successes and failures or tomorrows goals and fears.

I am off to India in a few weeks to spend a solid month working on myself to become more capable of staying in the present and acting instead of reacting to the constant stream of irritating triggers that makes me live too much in the emotional realm of discontent instead of the "awakened" state of accepting things as they are and moving more logically toward living a joyful and wonder filled life.

You will be seeing more about my efforts in this endeavor in the future.

Cheers,
Joel Bowers

Spring 2011

We just returned from a winter vacation to Costa Rica and another Taoist Tai Chi Instructor workshop in Tallahassee. Too many experiences to describe but it was a wonderful break from the cold weather in Montana. We have returned to nearly spring like weather.

We are about to start up 3 new Tai Chi classes at local assisted living communities in Billings and at the Senior Center in Laurel.

We are looking forward to a visit by Andrew Lahser from Arizona who will conduct a one day Tai Chi intensive for us on May 28th. We are just finishing the 108 move set in one of my beginner classes and should complete the set in my second beginner class in time for the new students to take advantage of the intensive.

On the FileMaker side of life, my server seemed to weather my vacation absence (off the grid) with just a couple outages. My friend John Winson and his son of Frontline Data were able to quickly restart the server when they were notified of the outage. I think it was only the webserver component of the server that went down so the USA TTCS member database was off line for web browser connections for several hours during those two outage periods.
