Nature has many faces, depending on where we are at a given time, what we will see and experience , are miles apart, different in every way, yet beautiful at the same time.
With the many prayers and healing thoughts coming our way, how can we not be enriched in every way, by the thoughtful and caring generosity of our friends.

This was a picture a did a while back. I titled it, Dragon Soft, you’ve seen it before shortly after I painted it. As sometimes happens, I paint something put it away, and don’t look at it again, till doing something else I come across it.
Today we are moving into several weeks into the journey of our cancer voyage. Each day is a new day, nd every day, I am blessed with the kind words, and messages of friends who remind me that they are holding us in their prayers and sending healing vibes our way.
It is an amazing feeling to know that there is such caring and thoughtfulness surrounding us. I appreciate it especially when out of the blue, I am struck down with an over-whelming feeling of “tired”. It is like nothing I’ve ever known, and I really can’t describe it. Everything just seems to grind to a halt.. and I NEED.. to sit down, close my eyes, and just wait for the moment to pass.
When my husband is out, I find I’m waiting for him to come home, just so I know he is safe. I know that over the course of the next weeks, even months.. I will be inconsistent with my blog. I beg your patience. I am eternally grateful for your continued friendships and support.
I remembered I had a picture that would give a visual on what some areas are like in our part of the world right now. Many people have been and are dealing with flooding. Not just one or two areas, many places in the Province, not only cottage country, any where, there is water. Our lakes, and rivers are swollen and over flowing their banks. People are scrambling to save what they can. There have been thousands and thousands of sand bags filled and carried to numerous destinations. Still the water rises.
According to weather specialists, we’ve not seen the likes in decades, records have been broken. The climate changes the world is experiencing is all very real.
Please pray for those in need, and give thanks of appreciation to the many generous souls who have come forward to volunteer their time and help to those who are having to face the raging rising waters, and watch helplessly as their property disappears under the incoming tides.

After a visit to one of the hospitals I’m truly overwhelmed at the number of “sick” people contained in a maze of corridors and multiple floors. This being only one of the large hospitals in this city.
In Japan one of the wellness programs they introduced was to spend more time with and around trees. I guess this came out in the early 80’s Japan in known for its spring time blossoms, people flock to the parks to take pictures and enjoy the refreshing ambiance of trees in early bloom.
Not spending a lot of time confined to a hospital, or home environment it is an eye opener to visit one of these places. Yes my Mother had been hospitalized, but my attendance there was focused on my Mother, and where I would have noticed or seen that the place was humming with activity and a lot of people, the thought came and went. Today I had occasion to have to track down my sister-in-law, she had been moved from the area I had been told she would be in. The hospital is big it has grown and expanded over the years, even staff were not sure exactly where or how to get to certain rooms, didn’t help that you had to know if you were in the right “section” never mind floor. Like a Chinese menu, there are multiple choices.
I came away with the determination to work harder at obtaining and maintaining a good health report card. Like most, I can cheat at sneaking in a dessert or extra starchy snack, now I have a visual reminder of where I do not want to be.
What about you… are you setting attainable goals, then sticking to them?
PL Principle #8 I will not have a mind to be greedy
PL Principle # 2 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.

Happy Saturday everyone… A dog whose name I have long forgotten looked out at me over the silly sunglasses someone put on him…Maybe his name was Teddy. Dogs are so patient with us. They have no idea why we dress, pamper and spoil them, but they graciously allow us our fun.
I know my girl, she was not amused. But… she was a good sport =^_^= long enough for me to get a picture.
Believe it or not.. when I did these characters.. I thought they were so cute. Now I can’t even tell you where they are. OR why I was making them. That was then, this is NOW.
All this to say. Life is what it is. Every day brings new ideas, and opportunities to be creative. Sometimes they involve others, sometimes you are on your own.

Being aware, appreciating difference, and living each moment the best we can, increases the potential of living in “Perfect Liberty”
Share your happiness with others.
drums beating a steady rhythm
a deep droning chant
accompanied the talking drums
somewhere within the lush vegetation
there would be a path
leading towards the origins
of the mesmerizing communication
behind each door
is a the total sum
of what “Nature/Universe”
has in store for us
find the door
open the door
and walk through
for all you do
each passing day
if look to find the door
meant for you.
