Good morning everyone! Hope your day is going well for you. Did you all enjoy wearing the “green” ..I personally had a wonderful day driving along the St. Lawrence (the great waterway that separates the United States and Canada) The day started out with -20 something weather, but turned to a balmy minus single digit by the time the noon hour was upon us.. Definitely during a Canadian winter we did not see a bicycle rider such as the one I’m showing you today. LOL and even on a good sunny day in summer, we are not likely to see such a sight here in Canada. Here we are about cars, motorcycles, and more cars. Riding a pedal bicycle is usually a recreational or sport activity. What caught me about this picture is the balance and way the artist packed his merchandise on the bicycle. We are all artists in life, we all use our gift in different ways. This man had to pile the pineapples in just such a way for him to carry the load and maintain balance so he can get his wares to market. Everything has its place. This was one moment in this man’s life captured in time. PL Principle # 3 I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things.
Yesterday while my friend and I drove along enjoying the sunshine and our friendship, we got to talk about life and share just being able to catch up. Both with busy lives, we can keep in touch, but while her activities tend to take her daily in multiple directions, she still works “9-5” mine is more laid back and my time more flexible. Sharing feelings, joys, sadness and disappointments is important, not because you want someone to resolve an issue or make something go away, but just to hear a thought out loud gives US a different perspective. PLUS, when we have a better understanding of a friend’s feelings and thoughts, we are better able to share in their happiness. joys and sorrows. PL Principle # 4 I will live with the spirit of Misasage (Devotion) working for the happiness of others.
somewhere in Mongolia on a clear day….
Calmness and adaptability will see you through…
