Even if you have done it many times before, put your full heart into it. When we are doing something, especially if its a small or easy task, we tend to get sloppy. Let’s put our whole heart into everything we do, even if its something as simple as pushing a button.

I have no likes or dislikes Even for those who say “I’ll have anything” there are things that I love ” I don’t see many people getting sick without eating what they don’t like, but I often see people getting sick from eating too much of what they like. The same goes for hobbies. It is a human path that doesn’t touch and stay.

PL Precept # 20 Live maintaining equilibrium between mind and matter.
Think of the timing before you say …”but” When stating your opinion, make sure you are being respectful of others’ opinions. Be mindful of this when you speak.
Look around, red is the prominent colour of the month. Red spiritually effects, stability, security, grounding, courage, action, physical and emotional survival. Red – physical energy, passion, courage, power, will and desire.
Red makes you feel passionate and energized its the warmest and most dynamic of the colours – it is said to trigger opposing emotions. Seeing so much red in the fashion outlets, I had a look in my wardrobe, not a red shirt, blouse, or top.. hmm actually I seem to be surrounded by shades of black, grey and earth colours.
Be a person who can recognize the sincerity of others. When you put your whole heart into things, you will be able to notice the sincere acts of others in the subtle things they do, and appreciate them that much more.

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.
I’m finding great comfort in spending time with the birds. I’ve even got my trunk set up like a cafeteria, every-thing ready for me to access when I get to the feeding areas. Some days it is just too cold to be fiddling with seed bags that are still factory sealed, Or get to the suet blocks that are still in their retail packaging.
I have been eyeing some of the cameras and the special lens attachments that the serious cameramen are toting. So far I’ve only gotten to the stage where I am making enquiries .. and talking to them about their equipment. The reality at the moment is that by the time I get to the feeders, asses what needs to be replaced, fill and relocate feeder trays etc. I’m usually dealing with frozen fingers.
Live radiantly as the sun. Striveto always be bright and cheerful so you can enliven those around you.
Try as I might, the beautiful face eluded me when the camera clicked. What a beautiful face, so bold, so striking. Sometimes called the beautiful magical vagabond, it seems that its appearance in the woodlands where I go, has drawn birders to the area to try and catch a glimpse. I confess I cheated, I bribed them with black seeds.. I got there and filled the empty feeders.. then stepped back and waited.
At first I thought ahhh I’m in luck a couple of blue jays arrived.. I got my camera ready, and of course as soon as I was ready they flew off. While I stood there deciding what I wanted to do I saw a flash of gold, and the wonderful masked head of the Grosebeak. Its face is so “arresting”.. the beak, and the markings on the face are vivid.
Their colouring is described as mustard yellow, with a big pale bill and gold eyebrows. I will have to go back and try again for a frontal view. I have googled it.. and see pictures of the face, but I want to capture a face for myself. An intriguing personality, I’m inspired. =^_^= I, of course am convinced there will be non as beautiful as the ones I saw today. =^_^=
To my long time birding friend, who knows until recently I have had no real interest in birds, “yes, I went out today and got myself a couple of Bird books so that I can identify the birds I find.” One of the ladies who sought me out to thank me for putting food out so they would come, had her ID book, from which she showed me the bird and the write up. Keeps it in her car she does..
This could be a passing fancy, but for now.. I am keen!
Always be cheerful, happy and good humored. When you make effort to be cheerful and happy, you will naturally begin to feel that way.
Imagine walking through the woods, hearing water, going to explore and discovering this site. Wow. A lot of beauty has been rediscovered this year with travel restricted to places closer to home, many are revisiting the greenspaces not far from their own “doorstep*”.
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
Be a person who can recognize the sincerity of others. When you put your whole heart into things you will be able to notice the sincere acts of others in the subtle things they do, and appreciate them that much more.

Last night when I was clearing the deck it was light and fluffy. This morning, you can see it is heavy and wet. I also note the difference, top picture taken with my Canon (Power shot SX730HS) and this morning’s offerings were taken with my Huawei P20… I love my Huawei =^_^=
Have a splendid day everyone! Whatever comes your way.. I know you will shine through it all.
Offer your service instead of expecting from others. Take the initiative to do what you can to help others. Understand their needs and act swiftly.

At first when I saw this picture, I thought “nothing like being caught between a rock and a hard place” The second thought that came to mind was ” a rose between two thorns” Still I’m not decided.. but I am attracted to this shot. What do you see, what comes to your mind?
There is always a balance .. hard/soft, fast/slow, flowing/solid…
There is something about the evolution of a tree, and what we have learned about how it grows, the different types of wood, hardness, texture, colour. I am captivated when I walk into a workshop where wood is being worked on/with. I love the many shapes, forms and characteristics of the different species.
In Wakefield the other day, the wood workers shop was not open when we went, but I got to explore his outdoor work space. Wood everywhere, it was a mini paradise.
I know that pictures are not the same as being there, but I’m sure for those of you who love this kind of “setting” as much I do… you can almost smell the wooden wonder of the place. In the back of this property is a babbling brook. YES I not only got a visual “high” I had the ambience of the running water and clear blue skies. YuppeeDoooo!!!!
We all have different ways of feeling and thinking. Let’s always accept others differences and respect one another. Remember that “different strokes for different folks” is the key to having harmonious relationships with the people around us.
