Quiet, blue skies, puffy clouds, shadows, the dignity of dying, allowing for the next season to begin. Gratitude and Acceptance.
Some stay behind, some go on to reclaim their freedom, their work on earth is done.
Bom dia, good morning
Lego, Lego, it has been around for years. I never played with it in years gone by, and had no intentions of playing with Lego now. One should never say never. Lately I have been introduced to the many “wonders” of the Lego world of activities, I thought for the younger generation, however, I have since learned that Lego is played with by the young and old, and that collectors are hugely abundant.
In my travels I came across this set. #75951 Fantastic Beasts. I thought to give it a try. It was not in the cards. My fingers lacked the coordination and my aging gray matter rebelled unkindly to my intentions. A friends grandson, I was told was a super whiz at building Lego, and that my little 100 some blocks would be sneeze. His accomplishments are in sets that have thousands of pieces. I shudder at the thought, what patience he must have. I surrendered my little horse and carriage.
And look dear friends, I have it back and it is a beauty. I am thrilled. The young man is now my Lego hero my knight in shining armor. I will never think of Lego in the same way again. btw notice that the heroes are younger now.. or is it I am getting older.
PL calendar day 14 Be a Person who invites happiness
Live your life with good timing and respond quickly to whatever appears in front of you. By doing so, things will keep getting better and better.
Life is continually bringing a lot of happiness and love into my world. I feel such gratitude and appreciation for my friends, each and every one of you.
Good morning, bom dia, a quick doodle, or sketch this morning, of a little character that has caught my fancy. You may or may not recognize Yoda, he was brave and intelligent, I like those characteristics. Above all I appreciate creativity and how when it is used for good, can do so much of a positive nature to the world around us.
Lately I have had to turn my attention away from watching media that (in my view) is negative and confrontational. We seem to no longer promote or share stories of goodwill, and /or positive interactions between the people who live on this planet. We seem to see only politics, religions (all man-made) and use them to batter the people who make up our communities. Our neighbours, friends, family, coworkers, why is it always, we against they/them, even within small units of people.
Watch the shift that will come, as the holiday season approaches, and the marketing goes into full gear. Then goodwill towards all will be played in the malls, over the media. glittering and shiny new toys and household gadgets will appear, Spend spend spend, then you will be happy…..right, till the bills come in
Yoda where are you, we need you now.. where are you with your clone troopers, come out of the fiction, we need you here and now. Evil isn’t in the skies and outer worlds, it is here, living amongst us now,
oh dear, oh dear, I am having a rant. quick my coffee, get me to a store so I can shop, change my focus…… unfortunately that is a temporary distraction. I still believe we need a Yoda. What do you think?
PL Principle #2 I will not have complaints about others,matters,nor the weather. Rather I will always be creativce and will look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.
Obviously this will be my mantra for today. Blessings all, huge hugs.
sim entendo, yes I understand
Good morning, Bom dia dear friends. How often do we say these words, yet when we give it more thought, we realize that maybe we didn’t really “get it” or understand it, the way the person was explaining it to us. Because a lot of my creative expressions that are visual, are abstract, when I am done I have a feeling of satisfaction I can sit back and see all the many possibilities of what, if anything, had been going through my conscious mind, while I “played”
The other day, I had so much pent-up unproductive energy that I simply exploded, verbal garbage and anger past and present erupted. Such is life, when we least expect it, poof the angry dragon appears. Fortunately I am blessed with a happy dragon, and she is more powerful than her counterpart. She knows the angry dragon doesn’t have the staying power. WE, my dragons and I are happy munchkins.
In PL, we know that Each Moment is a Turning Point. PL Precept 18

PL Precept #18 Each moment is a turning point
PL Precept #20 Live maintaining equilibrium between mind and matter
visions that danced before my eyes
simple beauty that caused my mind to stray
Every day we have the chance to see an array of colours, that really do take the breath away. Yet, somehow we fail to let the quiet impressions of calm, take hold and keep us in a serene state for the rest of the day. Instead we are affected by the sometimes negative incidents that pop up to distract and cause us to stumble or hobble.
It is at such times that I am reminded how priceless good friends are. A kind word, a gentle nudge towards a happier experience. little steps can go a long way. Rain may fall, but the sunshine will always return. Always.
and so, the hours passed the mind tired of wandering down rocky pathways, and returned to wander blissfully towards the captivating land of dreams. The flowers still smiled and waved from their happy beds, only this time their cheerfulness stayed to lead the way. Sleep will come and tomorrow will be another day.
I loved the gummies, anyone care to translate… (when I figure out this bilingual keyboard I will know how to do a question mark )
