death and dying

For me, mixed media 4.18.17

I was chatting with friend the other day,  since cancer is now factored into my life, we were discussing how people react to the word. It was interesting to note, that when I said that cancer was much like being told you are diabetic.  She did not agree.  Her reasoning was that cancer usually  meant death.  I understood that she felt that being diabetic your chances were much better. Diabetes is known as the silent killer.

We are born to die.  Death is something we all face.  A perfectly healthy person, can drop dead without warning.  Perhaps they were borderline.. high blood pressure, maybe it was cholesterol, or like my husband, out of nowhere, after living a lifetime with his heart, and never having a problem,  he was told, he  had an irregular heart beat and it was problamatic to his cancer treatments ?

I fail to see why cancer gets top billing, and why because someone gets the cancer card, it is deemed gloom and doom.  Sure there are difficult times, but someone with a gall bladder issue, will be driven almost insane with the pain that they endure till something is done about it.  A kidney stone,  is not a joking matter either.  And ladies, how about that 9th month party of labour pain and the utter joy of the delivery room.

Cancer is a wicked surprise, and it is a challenge, however, we still go to bed each night and wake every morning.  How we choose to make use of our time while we are awake and greeting the day, is our choice.  The love of life, and the understanding that this is not the time to squander our moments, means that life is full.  Love continues to grow and shine it’s light into our activities.

There is an appreciation of the blessings that we have been able to share, and continue to share.

There is no escaping death, whatever circumstances we find ourselves in, we are alive, and we will continue to live until the day/night comes when we go beyond what is here and now.  Then, we will be forever/always.

No more, no less.

crossing the road

Africa - Leopard tortoise

leopard  tortoise meandering along on his/her way, likely oblivious to the spectators following his journey.  It’s intent is to get to where it is going.

In the pouring rain today, sirens could be heard coming from different directions as I made my way across the city.  It was a constant downpour, so I wasn’t hurrying. I simply pointed myself in the direction I was headed, and followed the traffic in front of me, mindful of the speed limits and the traffic lights.

From the news this evening, I learned that in the early part of the day, there had been a lot of accidents with cars, trucks school buses going off the road and highways  due to the slippery conditions.  The usual pictures of vehicles in the ditch and the complaining that the darn weather was the cause of everything that happened.

I, like the tortoise accept that we live on this beautiful multi-facetted planet.. .. we are responsible for our actions. When one foot goes in front of the other, or a direction is taken, we are moving, it is me, myself and I  making the choices that move me through the day.

It is not the weather that had me leave the house without an umbrella, it was a choice I made to leave without one.  If I am walking along the road and it is so wet that the puddles are like small lakes, I have to know that a car could go by and I will be drenched.  It is not the car’s fault if I do get splashed.  That’s life.

Does that sound callous, I don’t mean to, it is just that life is what it is, and wet weather is part of living on this earth.  Winter in some countries means, snow, cooler weather, and slippery roads.  It is life.  If you know you have to deal with such things, why is it a surprise when winter weather  does what it does. If you have lived here for a lifetime, then, it happens every year.  It is not something new.

Happiness is a state of mind we choose to live in.  If you decide that negativity is all you see around you, then perhaps you need to re-evaluate  what you do with the positives that come your way.   Because positives are out there.

When we are able to have a thankful attitude, when we appreciate what we have and not dwell on what we don’t have, our perspective on life will change.  We will grow as individuals.  Our lives will move in a positive direction.

The 21st of each month, is Thanksgiving in PL (Perfect Liberty) – Let us be thankful for all the blessings we have received this past month.  Giving thanks, and showing appreciation, we move forward into tomorrow. Hearts open to unconditional love.

being YOU

africa hippo rhino

Remember the saying, “the glass is either half full” or “the glass is half empty”  Is this fellow walking on the bottom, or is he coming up for air.  Some days it is hard to tell, if its a good day, or we are just used to the “ambience” and tempo.

“I am so busy” I heard someone say, ” I just can’t get anything done”

I would wonder, then what have they been doing that they are so busy. If we are focused on the moment, then each moment we live through, is an accomplishment.  When we go out to lunch, after we have had our lunch, didn’t we accomplish what we set out to do. We ate lunch.  We actually “do” things all day.  Is it that we don’t acknowledge our accomplishments, that we are always looking ahead, and not satisfied with the present?

Have I been listening to too much Pi.   Unless you have heard of the book, seen the film or listened to the CD  you might not recognize my reference.  That’s OK, my musing can be confusing.  Life of Pi

PL calendar day 20    You are YOU, Others are Others

You have your own way of doing things, and others have their way of doing things. Don’t worry about what other people will say.  Simply take care of the task at hand.

Can you believe we are already mid month.  Please have yourself a grand day tomorrow.  Enjoy it to the fullest.  Make each moment count.  A moment wasted on negative energy, is a moment you are not smiling.  Happiness makes for a great day.

When you smile, others will too.

a winter’s day

winchester fog

Driving through the take out lane, I saw the fog was lifting. earlier, not even an hour or so, I could see only two car lengths  in front of me

I was heading back towards the city now,  with each passing mile, the sky got brighter

building across from po

bright enough, that I thought to stop to take a picture.  Usually I am driving by this site during the work day, and the road is just too busy.  I may have mentioned that I have been wanting to get a picture before the whole building disappears.  It has happened before, I am driving  along a road I travel many times a week when suddenly I realize that a building has disappeared.

The world around me is in constant flux.  For some reason, the demolition, began at a time that for whatever reason, I missed it.  I happened to go to the post office one day (it is across from this location) and when I drove out, it was a “WOW when did that happen???”  That was in the fall, and here it is February of the following year, and there it still stands.

building across from post office

I did see an opening in the fence.  However, my common sense, held me in check.  No hard hat, and not wearing my steel toed footwear.  Maybe I’ll get a chance another day. LOL if I were to find rust I would be in 7th heaven.

This adventure took place last week, today, I am looking forward to what’s ahead.

PL Calendar 18    Look Forward to What’s Ahead.

There is no use brooding over the past.  Always try to begin each day anew with a fresh outlook.

What a good teaching to start a new week.  Hope everyone is enjoying a long week-end, and is revving up for a stunning brand new week.

Jackass Penguins

Africa -jackass penguins

February in South Africa and the Jackass Penguins are enjoying a day on the beach.  Isn’t that always the way, someone is enjoying sunshine while we are experiencing gray skies and rain.  No matter, what is important that in our day-to-day living, no matter the weather, or situation, we do our best.

PL Calendar #16   Don’t hold anything back; Give it your all

“Always approach things with full enthusiasm and energy.  Then, things will develop in a new direction.

Every day is a new day, a new canvas, a new beginning.  Let us celebrate today, share a smile, wave hello, and send love!
