just because

dinosaurs

Hello.. imagine walking along and coming across this scene.  This picture was taken in an abandoned amusement park.  The dinosaurs in the park are made from fiberglass.  the prehistoric park reportedly opened in the early 1960’s and closed in  1999.  The sculptor was a James Q.Sidwell, when I came across the article, I thought. I wonder how he feels now that the park has just been abandoned, yes there are motion sensors to keep out vandals, but the creativity of the crew that put the park together .. has been left to return to nature.

I came across this bit of information because I followed the trail of this picture posted by Cyriaque Lamar (4.27.10 filed to Modern Ruins) for more reading on this piece you can  read the original post here.     When we come across these “wonders” we can only guess at the reason they closed their doors.

As an artist I’ve learned that every day is a new canvas.  In PL. PL Precept # 1 is LIFE IS ART   Every day is a new beginning,to be able to accept and delve into the challenges of the day, makes us stronger, and better people.  Learning to let go, is not easy.  The above picture (nuevomundotours.com)   is of the Inca trail in Peru.  I remember a time when I searched through books, and checked travel guides for how I could get to Peru.  I never got there, and my life has not been any poorer because that desire didn’t come to pass.  It was a passion, it passed, replaced by something else … that took me in another direction, and filled my life at the time.

Just because we want something today, doesn’t mean that if it is not meant to be, we should be lost and devastated.  Rather, appreciate the desire, the passion, enjoy the moment, capture it if you must, but be ready and willing to let it go’

Freedom is a state of mind.

When you can allow yourself total immersion

in the moment

the JOY of life will be with you always

Love is life

Love is being ONE

with the Universe/GOD

  1. I really appreciate this concept:

    “Just because we want something today, doesn’t mean that if it is not meant to be, we should be lost and devastated. Rather, appreciate the desire, the passion, enjoy the moment, capture it if you must, but be ready and willing to let it go.”

    I can see use for this in my ongoing conversation with my undergrad-college-daughter. And myself…
