My tarot reading did say spirituality was in front of me.

SADHANA

"YOUVE GOT TO BE QUIET INSIDE TO DO
THAT KIND OF PHOTOGRAPHY
IT'S VERY EASY TO "PHOTOGRAPH" 
INANIMATE OBJECTS'- LIKE OTHER PEOPLE
BUT : TURN THE LENS RIGHT IN ON
THE VERY STUFF YOURE HIDING IN
SHOOT THE CAMERA THIS WAY!
VERY POWERFUL STUFF!
SO ALL I CAN DO ALL THE TIME IS TO
COOL MYSELF OUT
THAT'S ALL I'M DOING - NOTHING BUT
SADHANA
IF SOMEBODY SAYS : WHAT DO YOU DO, MAN?
I SAY : I DO SADHANA
SURE, BUT DON'T YOU LECTURE?
SURE, LECTURING HAPPENS BUT
I'M DOING MY SADHANA 
THIS TRIP IS HELPING ME GET FREE OF MY EGO.
BECAUSE: IF I GET FREE OF MY EGO
WE ALL GET FREE OF OUR EGO
BECAUSE: THAT'S THE WAY THE TRIP WORKS
BECAUSE: WE'RE ALL THE SAME BEING AND
THAT'S THE PROBLEM- WE CAN ONLY MOVE AS
FAST AS WE ALL CAN MOVE..
YOU CAN HEAR THIS MESSAGE ONLY AS PURELY AS 
I AM PURE. THAT'S THE WAY IT BOILS DOWN-
I CAN RESONATE WITH YOU IN THE HIGHEST PLACE
I AM 
SO : I CAN DO NOTHING FOR YOU BUT
WORK ON MYSELF....
YOU CAN DO NOTHING FOR ME BUT
WORK ON YOURSELF!  "

thanks be to Matthew's Uncle Bruce for leaving behind boxes of books for my husband to carry forward so that I might find them on my path to wherever.

To all that contributed, thank you for your patience. I have taken it for granted. 
Progress is being made!

Royal 10 Standard Typewriter before/after

Most recently I had the privilege of tinkering on the oldest machine I had gotten my hands on. 
When it came to me, this 1920 Royal 10 Standard was in non-working, gunked up condition. This isn't unusual for unused, un-maintained machines.  It was a present and the new owner was hoping to be able to use it. (click on the images to see it better)



Similar to the way people get excited about the new iphone, at times in history people were getting excited about the newest model of typewriters.  Companies were competing against one another to make their writer the best of the best.  
During my research on this writer I found a fun story. In 1927 George E. Smith, the president of Royal at the time, purchased a Ford-Stout airplane for $75,000.  He then proceeded to deliver typewriters like this one by the thousands in crates by parachute to demonstrate the ruggedness of the Royal writers.  
These images are found in the Popular Mechanics November 1927 issue.
Not surprising, they are ama…
