Before working in a journal, the pages have to be prepped.  Especially since I am a mixed media artist.  I use different medium to work on the pages.  I have had so many projects to work on the past while that I have lost track of time.  I simply spend hours in the studio.  This meant, pushing the Xmas cards to the back of the burner, while I prep* pages to work on them.

*work on the pages – doing backgrounds and then priming them with a Gesso that seals the page so the inks or paints won’t bleed when I begin working on them.

Life is the same. We commit to something then before we are done, something else comes up and we juggle. Choices pop up and we have to decide what is the best way to proceed.  I reasoned that Xmas isn’t till December, BUT. I need to turn them in before the fall, so that the agencies can do what they need to do.

Am I procrastinating when I start something else before I finish another project?  The PL Calendar for day 23 ( I know we are not where near the 23rd) ” Once you have set out to do something, it is your job. ” Job? I am retired !!! Then it goes on to say, Once you have accepted a task, don’t make any excuses, continue the job until the very end and make sure the outcome is something you can truly be proud of.

Written words and philosophies can be so confusing at times.  anyone want to put in some ideas.views, give me something to ponder???

Winks at all her readers/friends…..honestly, I really am interested.  Yes doing this blog this evening is a stalling tactic. =^_^=

Reminder  Sunday, (August 11) service is at 10 a.m.  we will be doing the Ancestors’ Day ceremony.  See you all there!

Spaces, there is always a place, just right for meditation

find a space, where you can sit, reflect and contemplate,

BE your own best friend, LOVE will never end.

The Universe is everywhere,

there is no where you can BE without being part of the Universe

.. find a place, …. meditate

start today, make time for YOU every day.

Thursday doors

Good Morning, these are the doors I found yesterday in my travels. No concrete cement sidewalks, no asphalt driveways, open space and  blue skies were the order of the day.

PL Calendar day 25 –   Pay Careful Attention without Overly Straining yourself or Taking things too lightly

Having the right amount of tension in your life allows you to notice many things, and that will help you to better express yourself.

working and living

2006a

Working and living =^_^=   go together – living in the NOW means you are interacting and being present all day, whether it is work or play, you are involved.  by putting your best into all you do, the experience is uniquely yours.  What ever you do today, enjoy it. Yes, really… do your best.

PL calendar day 4 – Follow your heart while also thinking about the happiness of others.

Junho 4, Pense em felicitar a si e aos outros, sendo honesto consigo.

The fascination of a door.  I loved that the lace curtain still hung on the door.

This doorway was further away, however, I couldn’t resist a capture so I could revisit later..  Had someone built a fort for the children to enjoy, or… was it an old structure, repurposed.  The character of places found when exploring other landscapes far from the city. Absolute heaven.

Eartha my travelling companion, shares in the delights of taking that secondary road, the quest for adventure, the joy of a discovery.  We did have a final destination and arrived soon enough.  But, not before we found another gem.

The past is part of our present.

PL calendar day 16

Avoid being careless or overconfident.

Even though you have put your best effort into doing something you still may have made some mistakes.  That is why it is important to always work with a prayerful mind.

Why would someone put an old tire there?

PL calendar day 10

When you are not having fun, could it be because you re being lazy?  Sometimes you feel blue or can’t seem to find  the joy in doing anything.  At times like this, just get up and move your body or work your mind to the fullest extent.

If sadness and lack of hope knock I your heart – try to do something positive for someone else.
