oh no!

snow-dec-7_003Oh NO! the snowman exclaimed

I’ve lost my head again

As onlookers turned away

and shoppers kept rushing by

All he could do was  gasp and horror

as he saw his nose fall to the ground

snow-dec-7_002all around as the day wore on

people came and went on their way

not once did anyone notice

that the little snowman

was having a difficult day

the fresh snow on the ground

made the parks so merry and gay

snow-dec-7_004there was a shop down the lane

that if only someone would stop

he could tell them the way to find his friends

he knew his friends would come

help him put his head on again snow-dec-7_001with  a sigh of relief,

he saw his friends coming his way

oh joy, oh happy day!

you’ve come just in time

somehow my head fell off

and I’ve been at a total loss

I closed my eyes, and wished and prayed

and now….!!!! joy oh joy…!!!

 

ohno-part-2e_002

I can stand tall and proud again

his nose and smile back in place

he was ready to smile out at the world again.

Life can get very busy, especially at this time of year.  We rush from one chore to another, our mind always on the task at hand.  While this is good, being efficient is always a positive, however, take time this year, to make time for your inner self, and for the friends around you who may not have the same holiday cheer you are enjoying.

Often someone really very close by or near to you can be  having a difficult time.  We fail to hear the silent plea not because we don’t care, but because in our “busy” mode, we don’t hear the world around us, we are running on remote control.

shades of white

white-banksia-rose-flowers-1s white against a back ground of green

what a lovely picture you’ll see

the fragrance of a flower in bloom

will  touch your senses

with a magical sensory tune

cloud-and-sky

white against a sky of blue

a sigh will escape your lips

as you dream of a place

under tropical skies and

lazy sun drenched afternoons

img_0332

yet white against a sky of gray

can make for a very dull day

the white is still white

but we see it in a totally different way

think about it

how many times

have you looked at someone in a different way

only because

their background

coloured your way of seeing them

my sister painted me a hobbit house

sometimes, I think

yeah, this is where I want to stay

lost in a meadow of sheep

where I can while away the day

and at night, turn in for

a fitful sleep.

everyone needs a place to stay

when they need time

away

from a world that can in disarray

vintage xmas 2

I am a writer of stories,  but the art of telling the story, that is an art all on its own.  Last night I gave myself a gift, I took myself off to a magical place,  for an hour plus, I was transported to another world, and another time. The voice of the talented story teller from his virtual platform, took the audience to  Lapland where a boy named Nikolas was orphaned, and how the villagers came together to look after the young boy. Last night was  part 1 of Christmas Story (Joulutarina)

On the Seanchai libraries website,  they explain…  Seanchai (“Storyteller” in Irish) Library celebrates the Celtic tradition of stories told around the hearth or in the pub to friends, family, and welcomed strangers. Seanchai Libraries bring stories of all kinds to life, in Virtual Worlds: Second Life, InWorldz, & Kitely on the Open Metaverse.   www.seanchailibrary.com

The story teller last night was Shandon Loring.

Do you have a picture in mind, of what Santa looks like, did you wonder which of the folk stories are  “true”   How did all this Santa Claus “stuff” all come about…. ?

Story telling is an “art” .. my time spent listening to Shandon last night, has me wanting to know more about the story he began telling us last night.

If you are interested, join us for his next reading. Next Thursday evening 7 pm. pacific time.

PL Precept #1   Life is  Art

Hone your listening skills, enjoy the gifts the story tellers offer us.

unseen doorways

I remember showing you these pictures some time ago.  They are vehicles to open spiritual doorways to our inner consciousness.  Each one has it’s very own tone, and sound vibration.

You can visit this location to hear some of the songs that a singing bowl or lid will make.

Usually on Thursdays, I join in, on Thursday Doors, today, I wanted to introduce you to another doorway, and encourage you, should the interest be there, to explore the possibilities offered by this wonderful world of sound.

PL Precept #12   Everything has a way according to its name

PL Precept # 7   Everything exists in Relativity

Sometimes in life, we have to stop.. close our eyes and listen.  Words can mean so many things, and how they are read, and who reads them, makes a world of difference.

When we close our eyes and listen only to the sounds… our breathing slows down, our mind begins to follow the sound,  we travel to a place deep within, a place that connects to GOD.

Words on Wednesday,

a child’s expression

so much innocence

the emotion just happens

as we mature

somewhere, some how

we find ways

to hide or not show

how we truly feel

and in time

we ourselves forget

that the facade

is really just that

an outer face

and not what

we are feeling

at all

naughty or nice

there-be-dragons_006

Have you been naughty, have you been nice, hear that a lot around this time of year.  It is all about perspective isn’t it. When someone is being naughty in someone’s view, he/she could be being very nice and totally appreciated by someone else. Perspective.

We are all so different, so unique in our own ways.  That is a gift from above.  The ability to be different, so that each and every one of us is blessed in an ability to enjoy and appreciate the creative expressions of others.

tag, your turn

rensei-2016-h

Life is happily moving along, life is very good, there appears to be chaos around you, but in your little world, each day is a brand new, happy day.

And then, and then, surprise, the magic wand comes around and a little tap, tap tap, and darn, something changes.

computer-imagejayeshprofitfromprices.com (PC search – computer cartoons)

You get a new computer, because your old, true blue friend, simply refuses to budge, you shut down one night, and it simply refused to wake up. Yes, the new one is top of the line able to do all that you want it to do.  However, it is not warm and fuzzy, it doesn’t remember your last dinner for two, it has not shared any real “moments” with you.  It is a cold black, metal box.

Nothing is where it used to be, and every time you turn it on. you just know you will discover another learning curve.  Sigh.  I know, these opportunities are sent to keep our gray matter from getting sluggish.  To keep us eager for more knowledge, encourage our creativity.

Great way to start the day, how is your day going?  Change is good, mantra for the day, change is good, change is good..

Smiles and waves, good morning, it is the start of a Friday, I’m told there are black Friday sales going on everywhere.  Even here in Canada.  time to take a break and go out to play.

I know my new friend here on my desk will be waiting for me when I return.
