tools

I was reading a friends blog recently, he lives in Japan, and writes about the use of and the caring of good carving tools https://covingtonandsons.com/2019/10/04/sharpening-part-10-the-ura-%e6%b5%a6/ While reading his blog I was hit with the similarity of looking after one’s tools, and the maintaining of friendships. When we don’t look after our tools, they stop performing for us the way they were intended to perform. Especially a carving tool. A good crafts person, knows that it is essential he/she maintain his/her tools in good working order if the quality of work is to be preserved.

When a friendship is taken for granted, or mistreated, will it withstand the neglect or at times, miscommunication. In PL we learn that life is about us, and that we re responsible for our feelings. So I muse on if I feel slighted, or taken for granted, then it is up to me, to what…. dismiss the situation, put it aside and move on.

Not let it happen again, simply do not put your self in the position again. hmmmm the little voice says…. you could miss out on something…. you enjoy that friend. Did they intentionally set out to hurt you. The answer is no. It is simply their actions, were not appreciated by my sensitivities.

Darn being a philosopher is hard. I likely will opt for a good cry. Have a good nights sleep, and tomorrow, begin another day.

Now please everyone, don’t be sad or feel that I am blue.. I am living the moment, and will then move on. Life is too beautiful and inspiring, tomorrow I will be wide eyed and living my adventure.

gentle falling rain, will eventually, etch its presence in rock.

a shadow will change with the movements of the sun

a cloud is temporary

love is forever and unconditional

and, I am what I am, a temporary traveler in this space and time

Sunday 29th

A visual trip down memory land.

Be creative in your efforts. If something is not going well, take a step back and look at how you are tackling the problem. There is sure to be something you an improve on.

Thursday doors

I can travel far and wide, no matter how many doors I meet, I enjoy them all. I enjoy the character of the older doors, I confess to finding them appealing to my imagination.

Put your whole heart into whatever you, no matter when, or where you are. Don’t try to cut corners or be careless about things. Be fully responsible completing whatever you set out to do.

joyful

There was a time, when we gathered with friends, and neighbours to create something “beautiful”. The afternoon and early evenings were the time when most could stop from their daily chores, to sit and visit. Before electricity became something available to most homes, women had to gather to share while the light of day was still present.

When we share with others, in a personal way that allows us to talk easily and work at something that we are all taking pleasure in, there is a quality fellowship that is born and grows with the passing of time.

Unexpectedly today I got to visit with two friends over a lovely meal, time seemed to pass so quickly as we caught up with each other, sharing what we had been doing since our last visit. We laughed easily as we shared the good and the frustrations of the past weeks. What a blessing to have reached this place of comfort in our friendships. Unconditional love, acceptance, respect, and genuine caring.

“If you are going to do it, do it joyfully. I you have to do something, choose to do it with joy and enthusiasm. By doing so, you will experience a deeper sense of beauty.”

Perfect Liberty day 23, 2014

Each new encounter with someone, is an opportunity for a friendship. Not everyone will harmonize with your “energy” but, when you find those who do, wow! what JOY.

take flight

take flight under the dark skies or stay and stand on guard

the winds blew, the sky started to clear

the bears danced in place, and we continued on

in Mother Nature’s sweet embrace

sharing in another wonderful day.

Each day is another new adventure. Step out and greet the day. When the heart is open, you will always be amazed at how awesome life on earth can be. With love and friendship by your side, a cloudy day, becomes amazing.

lost day

Where did the 18th go? I looked down to record my sugar levels and found that I had already entered the 19th. Checking my screen, no, today was the 19th. not was, IS… stumble stumble grumble.

However I know better than to let this little blimp start my day off in a direction I do not want to take, so I took my pen and made a messy line and began again. This is something in my younger years I would not have done, I would have torn out the page and rewritten it all so that it was tidy and neat. Isn’t being another year wiser great! What is a messy page when I am the only one to see it, and I am busy lady preparing for a fun filled day.

This is THURSDAY DOORS and I have the door I want to share with you. It was given to me by a friend who just returned from a trip, she saw it, and said “dymoon”… =^_^= I wonder do friends relate doors to me because I sometimes show my hard head….oh what the heck, rofl is that how it is said these days.. Rolling on floor laughing. You know when you pass the mid century mark, you can be a little slower at catching on.

Here is my attempt at showing you this door, it is pewter, and it opens, I am wondering if it will go with the pewter door I showed you earlier that was a brooch.

To the doll club members, this witch is not finished yet.. and no, the little door will not be part of her outfit. Just saying.

PL calendar day 19 If you are going to do it, put your whole heart into it. Your degree of seriousness will affect the outcome. Your daily accumulation of effort towards your goals shows just how serious you are.

Happy day everyone.

introduction cards

Remember when the calling card was the way we introduced ourselves to people we met. Especially when making our way in the business world, your calling card was a way of saying, hi, this is who I am.

Tonight, I have been cleaning out again, this led me to opening a box that had an old card holder in it. Wow, each and every card held a memory or story of an encounter made years ago. Some contacts, I remember very clearly, and others not so much, yet each were part of that particular phase of my adventure here on earth.

While working I took advantage of my home time to listen to old gospel songs, by Ernie Haase & signature Sound https://youtu.be/cqTPok10HqQ

The bass singer Tim Duncan was an amazing singer. The quartet was always upbeat and made music in a way that to me was toe tapping and joyful. They made their performances so “fun”, to do that they had to apply a dedicated talent to their craft.

This reminds me that so much of what we do, daily, is live our lives as best we can, PL calendar day 15 – A cheerful Smile and expression makes everyone around you happy.

When you do everything with a smile, not only you but the the people around you will feel good. Always remember to put on a happy face.
