Happy Oct. 30th.

lanterns from the garden

Years ago I saw this plant and knew I had to have some in my garden. Now I have a wonderful bed of lanterns, so pleasing to the eye. It was my friend Eartha tho’ who took the initiative to actually get a picture before the frost comes and puts them all to bed for the winter. Thank you Eartha.

We all have good intentions, we all have creative ideas, and we all have at times missed out on our opportunities to follow through. That is why I have such an appreciation for the difference and the uniqueness of my friends. Life is so much richer and fuller when we embrace “new” encounters/situations. I give thanks everyday for my friends, I am so blessed,

New encounters can help you change Be up for anything even if its out of your comfort zone. This is a chance for you to improve yourself as a human being.

We are all facing the challenge this year on how we will celebrate (Hallows Eve) Halloween. A time when many enjoy the crazy silly ways we can welcome the coming season, and say good-bye to the summer. In Canada we already have had Thanksgiving, but our neighbours in the States, are preparing for theirs. Pumpkins, and all the trimmings of that holiday are bountiful in the shops and outlets. Fall is a brilliant season!!

However you decide to spend this week-end.. be safe, be careful and stay well.

when I fly

October is when we can take to the skies
oh yes my pretty day or night

If you look high in the sky, you will see me in flight

Sisters and warlocks, we criss cross the skies,

searching for the pumpkins that have been gathered for displays

Yes mortal beings, we love what you do,

For years now we have watched as the festivities blossom

we no longer celebrate one night a year… No No my lovelies

by the time all Hallows Eve has arrived

you have been celebrating “our world” for weeks on end

we have been rewarded time and time again

as we watch with delight, your shows that showcase menus

that are deliciously frightful and wonderfully ghoulish

ghosts, goblins, skeletons abound

we feast on pumpkin pies, and desserts that are so devilishly sinful

mortals, elves, witches and healers shriek in pleasure all through the night

have a BOOOOtiful day/night… I’m hovering near by

Peek-a-boo

fall is here!
The shades of red are getting stronger and more vivid

two of me? or is there more

 

 

Sometimes I am good, and other times, well… I want to play.  The picture on the right is of me where I accepted the challenge of wearing a bikini.  I was nervous being half-dressed like that, and couldn’t stand still.  So the picture is a bit fuzzy, but then that’s ok, cuz you can’t see all my  fat and bumps.

These were outfits I made to sell in my little shop.  The avatar is a Dinky made by a very talented artist in Second Life (Etheria Parrott)  She has  variety of dinky avatars to pick from, I happen to be a sealpoint and sometimes a lilac point Siamese.

The creative side of me can spend hours exploring the artist creations of others on the grid, and when not exploring, digital photography.

Q (that is me) can spend hours touring, taking in the sights and sounds, visiting different countries .. and never leave the comfort of my home office.  I like being Q, she is fearless, she can do almost anything,  she loves exploring and meeting people, and learning about the world around her.  I on the other hand, can be a bit of a recluse.

Awen 2008This is my friend Awen who introduced me to designing and building in/on a virtual platform.  It was a whole new world, and I was open to the challenge.

Life is unpredictable, our creativity, how we pereive the world around us, and how we want to express our individuality, is all part of a whole.  We are blessed by being given a new canvas every day.

Seize the day, make art!


PL Calendar, day 31   Your world will change when you look at things in a positive light.

Everything you encounter is an opportunity for you to express yourself.  What you choose to make of the situation is entirely up to you.

Thank you Oshieoya-sama for teaching me to love, to see God within me  and everywhere around.

*Excerpts from God and Nature, sung in church Sunday, (page)

I can harmonize with you with nature and humankind.  I am happy living like this, a rich feeling hard to find.  Harmonizo-me contigo, com os homens e a natureza.  Viendo assim sou feliz E nao ha maior riqueza

With love and blessings, great the world with your smile and presence.

Celebrations

When we drove by the Chinese Embassy today, there were bright red lanterns, flowers and decorations everywhere, it seemed so festive.  In China the Mid-Autumn Harvest festival takes place between September and October and commemorates the largest and brightest moon of the season.  It is a big celebration friends and family share moon cakes by the dozen ( see the moon cakes in left hand corner of the picture.)

The Chinese love red, red is a happy colour, the above are Chinese Lanterns hanging in Yu Garden, during the Chinese New Year.  The next picture was taken in Beijing during the Mid Autumn Festival.

We all celebrate life in different ways.   Lately the gift of life has played a pivotal part in my life.The energy of another human being provides a shaft of energy that oscillates giving wing to feelings and emotions that have lain dormant or have been simply non-existent.  Can one die and be reborn.  What determines the essence of life, and how it is lived.  We are told that life is the process of being alive, during our day-to-day experiences and challenges.

Imagine sharing such a moment with another being, the awe, the speechless wonder that such a feeling can be shared, can be realized, and then released. Today, I saw the signs of a celebration, then later in the day, I felt the elation of an explosion of life-giving proportion, so great that it left me in a state of wonder. Surreal?
