Thank you to my wonderful caring friends who have been helping me while I heal. Friendships are treasures that one can’t find with a credit card, they are priceless.

Today in PL is Appreciation Day (formerly Thanksgiving) it is celebrated on the 21st of each month. We gather for a special ceremony at the church, services are held at 7 pm.

I have much to be thankful for, I have been unable to do to much for myself these past days, i.e a simple glass of water if it was out of my reach, was a total effort to attain if I had to get up out of bed and be mobile. Time heals, and with the help of my friends, I have managed, I am so blessed. I can now move around with the crutches in a much easier fashion, at times, I manage with one if the distance is short and there is furniture I can hold on to. A stool was placed in the kitchen so once I get there I can sit, reach the fridge, micro, toaster etc. and at least manage to get something to eat on my own.

It is easy to take for granted the mobility we have, I will certainly be more aware and remember to give thanks for all of my abilities and not take them for granted from now on. Appreciation is sometimes something we give lip service to, IT IS IMPORTANT.. our abilities, talents and skills are earned and when one is taken away even for a short time, “life” changes. In PL we ask that prayers start our day and end the day.

Service tonight is at 7 pm. if you cannot attend in person, please pray from home, Give thanks for the blessings received the past month, and ask for guidance for the coming weeks.

Express your appreciation with enthusiasm. Appreciation is the driving force for progress and development.

PS- if I lived closer I would want to get a cloth and polish the chrome on the old truck.. isn’t it a beauty!

Tuesday 19th.

It’s OK! God is watching over you. Things turn out for the best. Don’t be captured by momentary troubles but continue doing everything with sincerity.

First I want to thank everyone for their prayers and good wishes.. I certainly appreciated hearing from you knowing my well being was being assisted by your prayers .. I can’t promise that I won’t try to take down another dead tree on my own… but I will exercise more awareness when I hear my knee snap and my leg give a whimper to PAY ATTENTION… and not try to “finish up what I started”

This will be a quickie since I can’t sit for any length of time.. the affected muscles etc. run up into my buttock.. I’ve been provided with a set of crutches which I need to even get off the bed. And friends are coming by to ensure that I “behave”, eat, etc. the dogs are being wonderful.. carefully staying out of the way when I try to manoeuvre from the bedroom to the bathroom. I’m afraid I might have to spent more time reclining with the leg up.. for another 24 hours. (sigh I’m a terrible patient, I want to find a way to get back into the woods to finish what I started!) (Ducks as Awen readies to whop me with a fish)

OK OK I promise I’ll be good (for this morning anyway ) All the medication yesterday is still making its way through my system. Later I’ll catch up on your adventures and drink in the wonderful visual presentations.

Take care everyone! Enjoy the crisp fall weather..

btw. anyone else, have WP change the font etc. on them?

elusive

In the cold gray of the morning light, I got myself ready to find the elusive wild turkeys… Nope, not a one did I see, but I did get some good shots in before the pending rain would start. I used the time to try different settings on this new camera of mine, and to get used to holding it, its big and I have small hands. I like “doing” .. used to enjoy getting up everyday to go to work too. Yup I’m “one of those” It is not “work” when you love what you do ..

What is “normal” is different for each individual. Everyone has a different way of thinking and doing. It’s important to understand others’ feelings.

Tuesday -smile

Let’s begin today with a smile. Let’s start the day with a positive outlook, looking forward to what we can discover.

Perfect Liberty 2021.12

In PL we learn that it is through living with appreciation for all the blessings we receive in life, positive & or challenging… we will continue to be blessed… the practice of prayer on a daily basis helps us maintain a balance in our lives.

fyi. for all of you who commented on the upside cars in last Thursday’s blog, it was an art installation that is held each year in Quebec City… the 3 cars were put there by artists who filled them with earth and made gardens for the viewers to enjoy. It was one of many displays along selected streets in part of the city.

May your day/week be filled with much happiness and positive productive moments.

Saturday 2nd.

I wore my new camera .. it can’t be worn like the older camera, this one is too big to keep on while I’m driving, so it was on and off. By the end of my adventure, I was glad to bring it in to charge and let it rest. It was heavy!!! I’ll get used to it.

Be a person who can say “I like it!” find what moves you the most and express your appreciation.

Lesson from Japan translated – Execution comes first – Even if you want to make a good work, you can’t make a work just by feeling it. It is a prerequisite to do your best in the way. Do whatever you notice immediately (realize) do it right away.

Woke up to rain today, but the birds still calling… have a great day whatever your plans…

Till soon

1st of October

the blush of change

Depending on where you are in the city and surrounding areas, the colours are beginning to deepen .. In some areas, there is a rainbow of colour, yet you drive out west of the downtown core and the greens are still dominant. Change is on its way, you can feel it in the air, smell it on the breeze that brings a chill and hovers before drifting off. The Robins are being social, coming out and being more present around us when we are on the trails. Every day I hear the sound of the crows as they inspect and search out their winter “resorts”… yesterday another photographer was patiently waiting for a “big” as she called it, wood pecker that had been frequenting the feeder area.

Today being the 1st, in PL it is when the PL ceremony for Peace is performed – today at 10 a.m. if you can’t make it to church, please take a moment to pray for world peace. Remember to show appreciation and give thanks for yesterday, and NOW.

Each person’s peace leads to world peace. First of all, you have to be happy. That happiness will spread and be the foundation of World Peace.

“To do” or “not to do” There is only one way. Although we may have many choices in front of us, in the end we must all make a single decision. Once you have made up your mind, move forward without hesitation.

meditation

There are so many ways to meditate, it is such a personal way to re-group and reconnect with one’s own inner thoughts/feelings. I marvel at how easy it is to fall out of the “habit” of being “aware”. there was a time I schooled myself to always be aware, taking time to enjoy each step along the way of whatever day I was experiencing.

We often lean towards what is easy. The first time I was told I was “lazy” … I really was offended, “me lazy” surely this was not an accurate assessment of “me”… but if I am truly honest with myself, I have moments. my choices are not always based on “productivity”. But then, why does one need to always be productive. =^_^=

As I slowly navigate this world I am in now, I realize that my situation, my personal space, everything that had been once “normal” is now actually just “clutter” Time has passed, I am coming out of a time of “loss” and “mourning”, the world around me seems different. + It is, the younger generations have different understanding of what and where the world is today… the older travellers … have all come from different backgrounds, their life experiences are etched on their faces, the tell tale shadows of the past linger in their eyes.

When I stand still in the middle of the woodlands, in whatever weather, just stand there, not moving, just listening, my eyes looking nowhere in particular, just taking in the moment, I feel the stillness wash over me, the birds, chipmunks, squirrels, all return to their business of “being” and we all become part of NOW. That moment in time for me is a meditation, it can last seconds, minutes, there is no “clock” just that space where the tranquility of “BEing” is all there is.

Experiencing such moments, means that I can recall that “silence” “stillness” at other times, it is a place I like to be. In such times of “contentment” I realize that you are part of that moment, because you are part of me. We are all ONE with the Universe, with our unique rhythms, sometimes we are in sync, and other times we are simply ships passing in the night. Either way, you are part of my world, and like the seasons, the ebb and flow of life will keep us harmonized.

Till soon

changes

Everywhere one looks today, you can visually see that the seasons are changing. Summer has begun its departure, the colours of fall are slowly taking over. The air is fresher and cooler especially in the mornings and evenings.

Let’s respond clearly. Giving a proper response shows consideration towards others.
