Zemplivin thoughts for April

Zemplivin thoughts for April

As I was pondering on what to write about this month I realized that I have never fully explained what Zemplivin means, so this month I thought I would share with you what Zemplivin is.  Back in July of 2010 my wife and I rode our motorcycle up to Robbinsville, NC. It was our 3rd wedding anniversary. We rented a place on Lake Santeetlah. We would get up early and ride all day then come back and sit by the lake and fish or swim. We hit all the cool roads; deals gap Hwy129, Cherohala skyway, moonshiner 28, plus all of the little roads in between. We went to Cherokee, Maggie Valley, stopped by Wheels through Time and met Dale and Matt Walksler. We hiked down to different waterfalls. In our minds we were free, "Free to fly" wherever we wanted. I believe I had what some like to call “a moment of clarity” while riding those mountain roads. Well, the week came and went and it was back to reality. At the time I worked in a factory that manufactured tires. My job was to inspect tires and run machinery. I worked 12 hour rotating shifts. When I got back to work something was missing. It felt like a prison. Here I just spent a week of absolute freedom and now I don’t know if it’s light or dark outside. I'm in a 6ft wide cubicle inspecting tires and I knew there had to be a better way. This wasn’t how we were meant to live! So I decided that I would come up with something to reflect how I felt on that trip. I had a lot of ideas running through my head but the idea of living simple and loving life was always there. So I started looking on the net and came across an article about Zen. I liked the part about inner peace and all, so I just put the three words together Zen+Simple+Living= Zemplivin. I trademarked the name and started coming up with a logo. Then I came up with the wings and added the Free to Fly. That’s how Zemplivin came to be. Zemplivin is more than a word or some name that I pulled out of the air; it’s a way of life. It’s living life to the fullest by living simple and simply living. I strive to live it every day, although sometimes it can be hard, it’s definitely a goal of mine.  So until next time keep on Zemplivin and do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
