Day 8 PL Calendar

First, accept everything

Life is filled with moments, sometimes happy and at times inconvenient.  It is important to first accept every situation as it occurs and try to accept and understand it for what it is.

Hello, bonjour, bom dia, and jumping jack greetings to each and every one of you.  Another new year is just around the corner,  In China the airports, train stations, all methods of travel really, are homeward bound.  It is exciting, and alive time.  Seeing friends and family sharing huge family meals, and gatherings.

Since my Mother’s passing and for several years before she actually passed, the Chinese New Year  came and went with a happy conversation and a small sparkle.  She was unable to get to the various celebrations held around the city or at the Chinese Embassy. Since I can remember, Chinese New Year has been the BIG turning point for me.  I remember as a child the banquet and feasts, the dragon dances, fire crackers and the many many ritual tasks that were preformed to make sure we started the new year off with gratitude for the past year and much appreciation for the wonderful time ahead.  Good fortune, Prosperity wishes were everywhere.  Red envelopes, special candies,  Happy New Year greetings always included the wish that your life be blessed with good health.

With my husband’s passing last year I wanted more than ever for this transition into another year to be auspicious and filled with the many joys and encouragements we would share to be 100 fold.  I worked on a year of the pig mixed media piece so that I would be actively piecing together elements that would be like a visual firecracker for me.  The lunar new year depending on where you live, is o the 5th. of February.

Ps… my little wheel around the pig.  spins.

Reminder.. due to the storm and the broken water pipe, there will be no service today, but Thanksgiving service is still scheduled for tomorrow evening at 7 pm.

Day 16 of the PL calendar for 2019

Even thought you may 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.

Be happy, live to spread happiness and joy wherever you go – people will think you mad, but oh how divine it is to share a smile with another being.  A dog wags his tail enthusiastically when you say hello, the cat, rushes to snuggle and purr in your arms. ah there is an unspoken bliss when we are harmonizing.  Try it.  You may like it.

PL Principle 21    will live in true harmony with the world around me.

Bom dia…

Chop Suey Tuesday 18th

oct journal pageHappy September 18th everyone.

First I want to thank you all or your birthday wishes.  I was away for a birthday outing yesterday, when I came back I was overwhelmed by all the messages and good wishes.  Wow, it is going to be super awesome year, I have been jet propelled into a new year.  I am truly blessed, I say thank you each and every day!

oct rust 1 page

While some look for pristine, blank pages, I work at making mine look old, and sometimes, like here, I strive to make rust, and dirty a page, this is my playtime. Yesterday was spent visiting places in west of downtown Montreal, looking for paint, inks, and any and all other artistic, creative tools, to be found,  It was an all day event that I got to share with two like-minded friends, needless to say, it was a lot of fun.

Every person is unique, we each and every one of us, expresses ourselves in our own way.  What rocks one person, can be a total turn off to the other, yet when we are on a search and find mission, the enthusiasm of the other person’s excitement when they have found something that has fired up their enthusiasm for their craft, that is catching.  It is smiles all around.

In our travels as we headed back towards Ottawa, I found Catnip who I knew would be perfect for my October Fright journal.

Sharing happiness with friends is a blessing.  What better way to share a birthday celebration, Catnip will always remind me that my 2018 birthday was not only  great.  It lasted for days,  Today I am off on another adventure.

PL Calendar for 18th.  Look forward to what’s ahead

There is no use brooding over the past.  Always try to begin each day anew with a fresh outlook.

sleepless in

piglet bedtime Thursday 22I 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.”

today 1.7.18

violetGood Morning everyone…

I am working on a new project, this is how far I’ve progressed since the other day.  Working with the medium I am using I prefer to let the layers dry before I move on to other layers.

Plus the layer I am working on might have to be done in stages since it is  “come as you are” inspiration.  Meaning, I work on it when I am “feeling it”  Some projects get finished others do not.  Simple fact.  I long ago learned that I am happiest living in the moment.  I am not a planner in the sense that I map out what I will  do next fall, or next year.

As it turns out this has become a blessing for me.  My husband having been diagnosed with an aggressive cancer, we live each day, happy to start a day, and to once again share the happiness of  being together.  Every day is a huge blessing, one we are grateful and thankful for.

In the book “the power of kindness” by Piero Ferrucci, he  has 2 lines that stands out for me.  “To remember is to live.  To forget is to die”

In PL we have the 21st precept.  Live in Perfect Liberty.

Today we start another day, I wish you joy, happiness and all that you desire to make it a memorable one.

Till soon Q

Oyashikiri
