Sunday -strolling thru

Because (update) I had a bit of a set back yesterday, I will be off my leg for another while. I was thrilled when I saw Num had posted the above pictures, this is where I want to be.. I so much want to be back wandering the woodlands..Sooooo I am being good, and practicing patience as best I can to ensure the leg heals. My new camera is heavy, and the terrain I like to wander is on the rugged side.. current mantra is patience girl, patience.

With one thought “The world” will change. Changing your way of thinking will make a difference on how you perceive the world.

I will be doing a blog on the Sax on the Beach venue I attended (virtually) later today or tomorrow to show you some of the talent I got to see and enjoy, I will post to my Virtual news 8 blog, SEE LINK. Please subscribe to it for news on the event and other venues and entertainment news from SL (Second Life) It is an opportunity for you to enjoy and get to know about people from all over the world through their creativity and talents. All from the comfort of your home. https://virtualnws8.ca/

My friend Shirley in NZ visited the most wonderful attraction in Denniston of an old coal mine. I’m going to share some of her pictures here for you to enjoy.

Where ever you are in the world, this is a wonderful time of the year, the cooler air is exciting, it brings with it the winds of change, and therefore we have new discoveries to explore. Through the adventures of my friends who like myself like to wander and explore, through my blog I try to share with you the awesome world we live in. In Shirley’s pictures I could envision how the coalfields must have looked back when it was operational, the hive of activity, the human energy it required to function.

We (as a people) have come such a long way, the history of our past, the trials, the hardships, the joys and the new discoveries are all part of what we have to thank for, where we are today.

With the new season soon to be with us, let’s strive to be better at being open to new ideas, new possibilities, and remember to give thanks for where we have been, and the people/ancestors who paved the way for us.

With one thought “the World” will change, it begins with US.

Love you all. Till soon

In PL we learn that it is through living with appreciation for all the blessings we receive in life, positive & or challenging… we will continue to be blessed… the practice of prayer on a daily basis helps us maintain a balance in our lives.

fyi. for all of you who commented on the upside cars in last Thursday’s blog, it was an art installation that is held each year in Quebec City… the 3 cars were put there by artists who filled them with earth and made gardens for the viewers to enjoy. It was one of many displays along selected streets in part of the city.

May your day/week be filled with much happiness and positive productive moments.

Rain on Sunday

The rain comes to wash away the dust, dirt and grime of the past weeks. We mortals that we are, also have a way of clearing away the “mental” debris we accumulate over the days and nights we cohabit on this planet. We pray! Whether prayer is silent, or voiced, we offer our thanks and express our gratitude for everything in our lives, whether they have been happy or challenging.

In PL, we offer our gratitude and prayer monthly with a ceremony at the church, however, I try to start and end each day with a prayer of gratitude, I offer my thanks for a good night of sleep and my thanks for presenting me with a brand new day. In the fall, there is a stir of excitement in the air when the weather starts to change, we visually see the beginning of a new season. Orange’s and bright yellows begin to appear with dashes of crimson here and there, till almost all the greens disappear and only the fall pallet is before us. Then we are blessed with a cornucopia of golds, burnt umber, rusts and the evergreens that remain show off the many variances of their colour range.

The foundation of our faith, PL Precept # 1 Life is art…. “as a living person, you interact with the people and things around you in order to express your feelings. Your life is shaped by the way you express yourself each and every day. Through your daily artistic expressions, you can create your one and only life.” It is easy to get so caught up in the chaotic energy of the world around us, that is why it is so important to remember to pray and give thanks each day for the blessing of life itself.

Our lives are our very own unique work of art. If you cut corners or miss important details, you will not be able to live up to your fullest potential. PL Precept #2 To live is to express One’s Self!!

I am most grateful to each and everyone of YOU, for being part of this community of “friends” who share and enjoy this world with me. I truly feel blessed and appreciate your visits and the sharing of your thoughts, stories and pictures that I get to enjoy and read… Oyashikiri…

Till soon -love always!

1st of October

the blush of change

Depending on where you are in the city and surrounding areas, the colours are beginning to deepen .. In some areas, there is a rainbow of colour, yet you drive out west of the downtown core and the greens are still dominant. Change is on its way, you can feel it in the air, smell it on the breeze that brings a chill and hovers before drifting off. The Robins are being social, coming out and being more present around us when we are on the trails. Every day I hear the sound of the crows as they inspect and search out their winter “resorts”… yesterday another photographer was patiently waiting for a “big” as she called it, wood pecker that had been frequenting the feeder area.

PL Precept 7 Everything exists in relativity….

PL Precept # 16 All things progress and develop.

Today being the 1st, in PL it is when the PL ceremony for Peace is performed – today at 10 a.m. if you can’t make it to church, please take a moment to pray for world peace. Remember to show appreciation and give thanks for yesterday, and NOW.

Each person’s peace leads to world peace. First of all, you have to be happy. That happiness will spread and be the foundation of World Peace.

Forecast said rain – it’s raining

Tell yourself “things Happen” Even if something is inconvenient, once you accept it you’ll be able to move onto the next step

Don’t give up! Keep at it until you accomplish What you’ve started. The key to achieving something is to stick to it. If you are able to continue something from start to finish you will be sure to accomplish it no matter how difficult the task is.

Smiles

Energy springs from your smile. A smile makes you and others cheerful and energetic.

Whoever would be a teacher of men let him begin by teaching himself before teaching others; and let him teach by example before teaching by word. for he who teaches himself and rectifies his own ways is more deserving of respect and reverence than he who would teach others and rectify their ways.

Kahlil Gibran

I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather. Rather I will always be creative, and will look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.

Power of Prayer

Good Morning everyone.. I have a thought I’d like to share with you, I am open to your input. For years now I have been doing special prayers. Seldom does a day go by where I don’t meet up with someone, and/or get asked to pray for someone who is going through, or having a difficult time with .. whatever… Certainly in these times of multiple tragedies, whether due to climate change, or day to day circumstances, there is a need for prayer.

In PL, we, as members are encouraged to pray everyday, and yes there are days, set aside for special ceremonies and prayers that are led officially by a minister or Hokyoshi. Through this site, I often will get a personal request for spiritual help, for someone who just needs a “helping hand” I have taken to doing silent prayers for individuals at a time I set aside, just for the purpose of doing what I call a power prayer.. Would anyone out there be willing to add their voice to this power prayer? It is simply a matter or putting aside a few minutes a day, to pray for those who have asked for help, who need a special prayer in their lives. It is the act of dedication, the sincerity of the request that is important.

Do you think it would interest you? It would take only a few minutes of your time… but it would be a time that would be of great service to others. Thank you for considering this request for input. There is a by-product, you get to spend a minute on yourself too =^_^=

Improve yourself to have a kinder heart. Do what you can to be caring and considerate to make others happy.

new perspective

acrylic nail polish and eye shadow

Before I go on and cover this up or add to it, I want to share with you what eye shadow from the dollar store and nail polish can do. (mixed media abstract)

We can travel or visit the same places, see the same things, i.e. areas of a physical space, but never is it ever the same as the last time we visited. Wait for it…. because nothing stays the same. =^_^= the only constant in life is change.

Today at Chapman Mills, the leaves have already begun to change, small changes, here and there, but change they are.

Face each moment, each place with a fresh outlook. I you handle a situation with preconceived notions or prejudices, your judgment will be clouded. Take on each situation with a blank slate, as if seeing it for the first time.

Perfect Liberty 2015.27

As an artist, this is an important reminder for me. There is an artist in all of us. Face each situation, opportunity, challenge with a creative mind. =^_^=

Till soon
