Old pictures found while cleaning up.. My first base guitars. LOL.. you can see had I kept them…they would be vintage now. My Gibson on the right was a real thrill for me when I got it.. I looked for more pictures thought maybe I could find one with my knee high white leather boots… and psychedelic dress. LOL you were spared, no more pictures turned up.
You kidding. I wouldn’t know what to do if I had one now. Same as I no longer drive a stick shift. We change with the times…. I am grateful for all of my life experiences.. In PL we do our best to live in the NOW. Being present in our day to day .. means, we truly get to live each precious moment that comes our way.
No effort is ever wasted. Even if no one witnesses your actions, God is watching you. No matter how small your efforts, your Makoto (sincerity) will always be rewarded.
It is important to be assertive, but maintaining harmony is just as important. Say what is on your mind, clearly, but don’t be overly attached to your views. Respect the points of view of others and always seek to find a happy medium.

Shadows play a very important part in our lives.There is always a shadow to be seen lingering, =^_^=
Good morning, did you actually watch the video. My Mother was hooked on old movies, especially the ones with song and dance numbers.
My friends I love them all. Each one of t hem has a different “musical” bent, and personally I love them all. (not at the same time =^_^= .. But I do enjoy the many different “vibes”.
I never did get to line dance, but I have friends that are crazy crazy for the activity. I’ve been going back over some of my favourite tunes, and realize that i do enjoy the foot tapping songs. They are happy and put me in a good mood. Can’t help but get up and boogie or sit in my chair and do some “chair stomping”
Hopefully one of the above clips will have you wanting to get up and move. These past months, weeks and days, so many of us are not get getting out and moving around like we used to. We do need to move, and we need to drink a lot of water. Two things so easy to do, but.. for some reason, we don’t get to follow through on our good intentions.
Embracing the moment, is important now more than ever. We are all in this together. These times of “unknowns”… we need to be supportive of each other. Listen carefully to our friends, and do our best to understand, what their “moments” are really like.
This next song is just because, I really love listening to it.. =^_^=
Thank you all for spending this time with me… I hope one of the tunes, gave you a moment of pleasure. Music is a form a “therapy”.. dancing is “therapy”…. give yourself some pleasure today, you deserve it. Make your own”music”. move in a way that embraces all the love and joys you could ever want. Create your own “NOW”
Don’t allow anyone or anything put you in a box or on a shelf. Life is for living.
Believe in LOVE… if you skip all the others, listen to this last one…
In life we live each moment of our days, doing, thinking, taking action,eating, sleeping, whatever, there is usually an activity involved. the results of our days, some are productive, some less so, but…. the reality is.. for every “action” there is a “reaction”.
When we take a picture, we capture that moment in time. To the photographer, he/she saw and did so much before he/she took that picture. We see only the results .. what was captured in that moment when the picture was taken.
Mixed media is another re-enactment of sorts. the artists starts with an idea or inspiration, then pulls, tears, shreds, paints, pastes, stamps, whatever to accomplish an end result. In my case, instead of a photo, I call it a “doodle”. (dictionary -verb- to scribble absentmindedly etc.)
Will you “doodle” today, or dawdle…. LOL whatever you do, have a grand time doing it. and… SMILE!!
Your smile energizes the people around you. A smile has the ability to put others at ease and give them energy. Strive to be the first to offer a smile each day to those around you.
It is important to say “Thank You” Everything that appears in front of you is all material for you to improve yourself, whether its food, people, or things. Learn to accept everything whether it is something you like or not.

In PL we learn that everything happens for a reason. It is how we accept what happens, our attitude, and the steps we take to deal with the opportunities offered, . Change begins within ourselves.

Yuppers today I woke up with a maudlin mind. My thoughts travelled down roads, through valleys and dales that well…just brought tears that needed to be expressed. Crying doesn’t mean I’m unhappy, it means I am reliving a series of events that tugged at my heart strings.
I talk to you all about love all the time. Love is forever moments that live on in the energy field that is me, myself and I. Crying is cleansing, to allow a tear drop to fall is to allow the sunshine in on a sunny day.
There will always be a way. If you persist and be creative without giving up, you will find solutions that you had not considered before.

Now I’m off to exercise, walk my many steps, and move. How about you! step, step, step, exercise your brain, your body, your everything. Life is for living.
Trekking through an area of land that until very recently was unknown to me, it is only some 15 minutes from me.. Yes I’ve been driving by for years, and never knew his gem existed. Took a serious world ” happening” to get me to actually get out of my car and explore the area. Also.. to give credit where it is due, it took my dog taking off on me out of the car .. and heading down one of the trails with an urgent need to explore.
I took him back there today, but on a leash. He was not impressed. The little missy, balked at going out, so .. guess what.. she got left at home. Too bad so sad, was not going to insist. When Velcro and I came home, we were both full of the most wonderful tantalizing smells. Don’t know how they communicate, but they certainly seemed to be having a good exchange of information ..
About the birds, I saw flashes of colour here and there, and birds darting from one tree to another.. but was unable to get one to light long enough for me to grab a picture. What I can tell you is that right now the woods are filled with the chirping and singing of the many species that are taking temporary accommodation in the area as they migrate through Ontario.
Life is really an adventure, some chapters are easy reading, and others are jam packed with excitement, tension, and the unknown.. Whatever chapter you are in, you have to know.. that the next page will bring something new into your awareness, it will be forever unfolding.
There will always be a way. if you persist and be creative without giving up, you will find solutions that you had not considered before.
