No, not lost where you don’t know where you are, just “lost” when you stand in one place and feel that at that moment, you are in many places. The shadows, the lush vegetation, the multiple shades of green. AND of course the almost hidden old wooden building in the background.
My adventure companion and I had arrived in Merrickville, her for ice cream, and me, for no real reason but to share time with a friend and enjoy the outing. Then I saw this place and was instantly transported to many places at once. I saw New Hampshire, the Laurentians, southern NY state, it was an amazing feeling, it wrapped itself in a hug and vanished,
Such moments are not uncommon, but they are not “ordinary” we have to be tuned in to “receive the frequency”. Be present in your every day life. Live each moment! Live with appreciation .. give thanks!

Don’t Strain, Don’t Rush, and Don’t be Greedy
When you are doing something, my may rush things to get good results quickly. Instead relax and enjoy the process (PL, Perfect Liberty)
Remember this from yesterday. I loved the simplicity of it, I wanted to do it. To make it easier on myself, I asked the minister’s wife if she could please show me how to do it. Being a visual person, I do better when I see something done (when it is totally foreign to me and origami is) Her patience at folding the paper, and refolding to ensure that I was seeing where I had to turn the paper, how to fold a crease etc. was calming.
I didn’t know that I was so hesitant to do it wrong, that I wouldn’t even try until I saw her do it. The she patiently led me through the steps, one by one.
Me, “miss get it done” was learning something new, I doubt it is something I will ever excel in, but I did it. I have an artistic bent as you all know. The mediums I do best in, are media that work WITH me, for example, my “style” of work, and my need to watch the process develop (I am getting better) finds me working with acrylic and water paints. Oils and I have not clicked over the years. Yet I do work with mediums that require over night drying…I’ve never taken to oils.
This lesson has a lot to “say” to me. I know that I will do my best to apply myself to practicing the wisdom in this lesson.
I will do my best.. that is all any of us can do.
Have a good day everyone.. LOVE and Blessings.
I want to cheerfully say…
Good Morning everyone… however, having been awoken to activity, and then have 2 full-grown whippets try to snuggle down with me.. ((((who let me add, wanted their breakfast)))) shall we just say, “happy Saturday” and get up to meet the day.
I know you have met little Piglet, but I have been working on texture, I think that you are able to glimpse it. What you can’t see is Piglet’s nose is shiny, with a wet look. I’d love to know what is at the bottom of the cup, she seems so pleased with herself. From the smudges on her face, ?? anyway, she seems happy. That is all we can ask for isn’t it. A happy Piglet.
In life there are circumstances we can control, and other’s we can’t. A wise person once said, “know when to pick your battles”
Today’s PL Calendar page reads, “Listen” and “See” With Careful Attention and Accept Each Other.
“Focus your “eyes” and “ears” towards the expression of others without any preconceived notions. Then you will be able to see their true intentions.”
I like this card, I no longer have it, but still have this picture .. Makes me smile, YOU make me smile, Let us all have a day where we share our happiness with others.
