haunting beauty

IMG_7392walks in forgotten places

the whisper of the leaves

as they are temporarily displaced

by intruding footsteps

on the well-worn path

the memory haunts me

the path remains, but you are gone

no longer will we explore the unknown

for you have gone into the unknown

You have found peace forever more.

While I wait on the shore

listening for signs, that on earth, one day

peace and happiness will be found around the world

Till then, the haunting beauty will remind me of home

and the comfort of unconditional love, beyond here and into the unknown.

Good morning, bom dia, at the start of another beautiful day. 8 in my world is considered a lucky number.  I just happened to have my camera ready when Nick had his back turned.  Nick is one of a pair.  Mel his beautiful and talented wife was, we soon discovered, watching us from other part of the museum where she was stuck behind a short wall.  It was my good fortune that the two decided to take a day trip up to visit. Heck they only live some 11, 12 hours away.  Let me tell you they are very special.

I got to see a lot of interesting exhibits as we wandered the museum, but the greatest gift for me was to share time with friends that I have grown to love.  They bring such caring and open sharing when they are visiting.  Every visit is like a homecoming.  The laughter is genuine, such friendships are treasured.

IMG_1515Possessions can be acquired,  They can be enjoyed and cared for, but having good friends, and time spent in warm, comforting camaraderie.  That is a blessing.  It was a wonderful visit, I thank them both.

PL calendar day 7    Don’t strain, don’t rush, and don’t be greedy

When you are doing something, you may rush things to get good results quickly.  Instead, relax and enjoy he process.

I can only imagine how as the friendship grows, we will appreciate even more our differences, and our sameness.

One of life’s lessons, to be practiced and lived  – appreciate differences, everyone is unique, share with an open heart.

Stay awhile, simply stand, sit, wait, till the sounds around you, are the only thoughts you hear.  Feel the breeze, take in the smells, you will feel you body start to relax.

hwy to alfred8Walk slowly, for now, in this moment,  you have no other place to be. SAy these words quietly to yourself, right now.  Then close your eyes, take a deep breath, feeling your lungs expand    smile    then slowly open your eyes.   Ahhhh how easy was that.

Go in peace my friend.  You are loved.

Bom dia, good morning

Lego, Lego, it has been around for years. I never played with it in years gone by, and had no intentions of playing with Lego now. One should never say never. Lately I have been introduced to the many “wonders” of the  Lego world of activities, I thought for the younger generation, however, I have since learned that Lego is played with by the young and old, and that collectors are hugely abundant.

In my travels I came across this set. #75951 Fantastic Beasts. I thought to give it a try. It was not in the cards. My fingers lacked the coordination and my aging gray matter rebelled unkindly to my intentions.  A friends grandson, I was told was a super whiz at building Lego, and that my little 100 some blocks would be sneeze.   His accomplishments are in sets that have thousands of pieces.  I shudder at the thought, what patience he must have.  I surrendered my little horse and carriage.

And look dear friends, I have it back and it is a beauty. I am thrilled. The young man is now my  Lego hero my knight in shining armor.  I will never think of Lego in the same way again.  btw notice that the heroes are younger now.. or is it I am getting older.

Greetings on Sunday

 

fright drucillaMay the day shine brightly for you.  Sunday and we are not having a service this morning, because of the service last evening. What does one do on a Sunday morning, when there is no service.  I to Drucilla’s displeasure, decided to play with my paint and other supplies to start on a  makeover for her.  I have told her that this is therapeutic for both of us, but her silence tells me, …. it is all in my head.

Tomorrow begins another month.  October.  The leaves have started to change, when driving the back roads yesterday, I saw more sights of reds peaking through the evergreens.  Actually not only the various shades of red, but the yellow orange hue were also taking over the fresh greens of the summer.  The camera buffs who have been slumbering through the sweltering summer, will be polishing off their lenses to take full advantage of the fall display that will soon be in full bloom.  I confess, I love, LOVE the autumn season, here in Canada where we get four different seasons, the fall months tantalize and delight me.

With that in mind I will be on the watch this morning, for “something” to catch my “eye” while I am out driving along the river, into rural Ontario. Some time, when you are inclined to do so, you must tell me how you mange to drive and “catch” that perfect moment, when there is other traffic on the road… =^_^=

PL Calendar day 30

Use your results to make the next time even better

Whether things turn out perfectly or not, the important thing is to take what you’ve learned and apply it to the next time.

If I could make this lesson, flash with neon lights, I would do so,  I think the mice are back, or trying to come back in  As you know, it took a long time to rid this house of the little “devils”…. So! mon ami, it looks like we will again, take on the capturing of mice.

I have spent my evenings with Poirot (Agatha Christie} audio books, so delightful!

skull floral 2Bom dia, Happy Friday dear my dears

Whooooo is getting ready for the witching month.

Whooooo has gathered her friends to discuss the possibilities

Me, that’s whoooooo!

The possibilities are endless of course, and I have changed my mind 1000 times at least.  Think about it, isn’t one of the joys in life, anticipation.  When we were children the excitement of special holidays, or time away from routine was always so exciting. Some included gifts, others trips, time for getting together with friends, and just plain old. play time.

As an adult, yes, now I can really say I am an adult…LOL  no questions asked… for sure I am seen by many as something very different from how I see myself.  That is something we call come face to face with.  Life has it is seen by the different generations.

However .. the fall is the time of year where my creative juices really get charged. I know I am not alone, just visit any shop in any town, city or  hollow, and you will see a different palette than the one earlier in the year. Colours are vibrant with jewel tones, the air is crisp, the apples crackle, pumpkins spill out everywhere.

If you haven’t had the small pie pumpkin as a veggie,you are missing a treat.

Today being the 21st. of the month, in PL, we are celebrating Thanksgiving, where we pay special attention, to giving thanks for our blessings of the past weeks, and pray for the continued blessings of the Universe.  Recognizing that we, and we alone are responsisble for our actions.  Love/peace begins in our hearts.

Being happy within ourSelves makes for a much more fulfilling life, don’t just exist, have the passion to BE.  Share a smile!

Service will be at 7pm.

 

brazil, que mais?

an early birthday surprise….

Many years ago, I would not have known who Neymar Jr was, nor would I have wanted  a futbol shirt. See how time changes us.  Time and the various experiences we live shape our development.  A stint in  a Spanish country, a visit to the French seaside, life is full of possibilities.  Each step we take outside our comfort zone, makes us stronger.

Tomorrow the 11th. in PL we will be celebrating Ancestors day.  In some countries it is already tomorrow.  For my many friends on the same time-table as myself, wake to a new day, and be thankful for who you are today.

Show your appreciation by giving back to the world around you.

(PL day 11 on our calendar)

IMG_0912Sending my love and deep appreciation to each and every one of you.  I am grateful that you share part of my world with me.  Oyashikiri
