Thursday doors

Which door beckons to you today? What story/impression does it call to you as you drive/walk by?

Life is a series of opportunities, we are always being given opportunities or presented with a puzzle or challenge, some we rejoice in experiencing, others we arrive and have no idea how we did so. Did we enter with an open mind, did we see the moment present itself and let it go by…. or simply walk through without even looking.

In my part of the world right now, even tho’ it is only September, the fall colours are already in many places in full blown colour. I saw a magnificent sight along the road the other day, but the road was so busy with traffic coming both ways.. I could but admire…. the tips of the leaves were a deep crimson red, the rest of the leaf was a golden yellow, yet near the stem the edges were still an emerald green. when next I drive by… well… who knows..

Service tonight at 7 pm. for those of you who can make it to the church, if not please pray with us from home. 29th is PL Anniversary Day, the ceremony where we express our appreciation to our Founders and the Oshieoya-sama that followed.

Are you overdoing things? Not only do you harm yourself when you overdo things, but you may be imposing on others as well.

Turkey Vulture

Dirk Haukenfrers -2020

It is not fun to be stuck in One Place. Instead of being captured by what’s in front of you, strive to broaden your horizons.

Prefect Liberty 2022.28

Yesterday coming out of the Mer Bleue along the road that brings me out to the highway from the conservation area… the wild turkeys were doing their usual foraging enjoying the early morning quiet when a car came barreling down the road. This is a no exit road, it ends at the bog. The turkeys were making their way across the road, had to be over a dozen of them… I was slowed to a stop on my side of the road, when I saw the car. I waved to caution the driver.. but she didn’t stop, she did slow somewhat, but not really, the turkeys fortunately cleared a path for her. I guess they have had experience with uncaring humans.

I had to ask myself, what or why would someone be coming into a conservation area where people come to enjoy the quiet and solitude, to share with the animals in the beauty and bounty of nature – and have such a disregard for the critters that call this home. Of course, I had just left the parking area a few minutes past, and knew that there was a group gathering there of “seniors” who were going to be touring the bog. Several cars had already arrived for the 9 o’clock meeting time, and stragglers had been arriving the last 10, 15 minutes before I left. My guess is the rude driver was late .. and was bent on getting to the parking lot before the others took off. Not impressed.

No, the turkeys were wild turkeys and not the turkey vulture you see above.. Dirk took that picture a few years back and had graciously given me permission to use it. Isn’t he /she a beauty. When I went looking for a picture of the actual wild turkey, I spied this one and had to share.. I don’t understand myself how I’ve come to be so fascinated by the turkey type birds… but… there you have it… they aren’t even cuddly. Life is what it is… we don’t pick who or what we fall in love with.

There is that word.. L O V E …. let’s spread it around today… sprinkle it in all our actions..

Oyashikiri

When love becomes a habit and part of our every thought and action… life becomes a JOY that enriches all our moments.

oh no!

Oh No she cried.. Go away, – Come again another day…the sun isn’t up yet – Let me stay in bed – Only for a little while longer – But – the dragon’s voice grew stronger – you have things to do – You can’t just lie in bed – Why ?? Why? Why?? – She tried pulling the covers over her head – the dragon pulled back his head and blew a gentle nudge her way – There are things to do and you will be late – now be a good girl and get out of bed – She knew he was right – the dragon was always right – But dragon wasn’t finished – Close your eyes for 30 seconds… go on… do as I say… with a sigh she closed her eyes…. She felt a gentle kiss on her forehead and smiled…. – Now you can get up his quiet calming voice spoke, she felt his love and knew he would be there with her to face the day – With a smile on her face and in her heart she rose to meet the day.

Begin each day with love…

That is the dragon way….

Praying before taking action changes the outcome. Have clear wishes and do your best. Then something new will open up for you.

Hello Fall

Yesterday as I drove down the road to the entrance to Mer Bleue I slowed to look over the valley beyond the trees that border the road and saw … fall colours… the whole line of trees along the far side of the valley were crimson and golds… Yikes… it is still September … I didn’t have the Nikon with me and the cell would have limited range for me to capture that colour. BUT it was there.!!! Good thing fall is my favourite season.. I L O V E IT….

Be cheerful and friendly with those around you. Other people can sense how you are feeling … So, be cheerful.

Whoa… what a “ride” the last 24 hours plus have been. However, the fog has lifted. I’m feeling human again. Sometimes we have no choice but to let the body deal with the intrusion in its own way. Certainly if it was lacking in rest, it got a lot of that in. Thank goodness for over the counter meds, i.e. Gravol and cold/flu tablets.

As you saw, I did manage to get in to cover a festival that is happening “inworld” however, I was so brain fogged, that I wrote it up on this blog instead of the virtual blog… oh well. C’est la vie… it was done.. It is one of those times when the little voice whispers.. “get over it” “move on”.

How are you doing? I finally got around to reading my e-mails and messages, thank YOU to each and everyone of you who reached out.. I appreciated your words and support.

Today I am going to try and see if I can find the turkeys and get a picture. The other day the little brats were lazing about in the P 21 parking lot.. it would have been a beautiful picture, but as soon as my car came to a stop at the end of the lot… they got off their various perches and sauntered off into the tall grasses and out of sight. No amount of sweet talk influenced them. In fact my arrival threw the raven who was visiting with them into a real temper tantrum and he began to verbally hurl his thoughts about my arrival at me. What a voice, loud and guttural, there was no missing his message or his annoyance.

Your smile can create an instant connection. A warm smile brightens everyone around you and has the power to break down barriers between people.

My smile has no effect on crows, ravens, or turkeys. just saying!

I love this piece… (my own work)

I wrote yesterday – hiding in plain sight – little did I know. The body is wonderful, when you over do or are in danger of causing serious damage to yourself… it shuts down.. In my case, it presented me with a problem I could not ignore. a whopper of migraine. So severe I had no choice but to lie down and let it fade and believe me, it was not going to make it an easy fix.

You can only change yourself. Before you start telling people how they should do things, think of how you can be more flexible.

Perfect Liberty 2022.13

If you have never had a migraine or suffer from headaches.. you will not understand or know that there is only one way what works, cuz your laid out, completely incapacitated…It is the body’s way of saying STOP you haven’t been listening. I encourage you all, if you are running from one “task/chore” to another and not taking the needed time for YOU… don’t fall into the trap.. Nothing is more important than YOUR peace of mind and making time for SELF CARE.

Monday

When you face difficulties start with anything you can do. When you are able to grasp the situation, you will surely be able to notice something that you can do.

Perfect Liberty 2022.12

I opened a magazine the other day… the bold letters splashed across the top of the page shouted at me LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE. It was followed by the quote ” To feel and think, and learn, learn always surely that is being alive and young in the real sense” Freya Stark I stared at the page and reflected on the words that were catching my attention.

I had just replied to a friend who had sent me message asking if all was Ok. I write another blog that covers the lifestyle, art, performers and entertainment in a virtual world. I have been doing that off and on in the Second life (virtual international platform) since 2007. With the networking, researching, photography, writing, publishing etc. 20- 30 hour a week and sometimes even more had to be dedicated to getting the posts out on time. We are now in 2022 and life has changed for me… In the last many years I lost my Mother, my husband along with his parents, several of my long time close friends, and the list goes on. My Father passed away when I was 10.. I miss him to this day…

Change is ever present and will always be. where do we get our inspiration,& motivation when we are no longer experiencing the pain of loss and the challenges of “new beginnings” for the first time, but find the sameness in the “opportunities” placed before us. Yes, when you recognize the “moment” but the “terrain” is different. The season is changing. I am checking to see if my gratitude meter is still working as it should, or does it need to be fine tuned. How about you…. Today is the start of another week.. you ready?

Did I mention that .. la vie est belle ( life is beautiful).. it truly is… it is just that there are days/moment when it is interrupted by a commercial(s) – and we can’t fast forward.

Till soon
