Whoa… what a “ride” the last 24 hours plus have been. However, the fog has lifted. I’m feeling human again. Sometimes we have no choice but to let the body deal with the intrusion in its own way. Certainly if it was lacking in rest, it got a lot of that in. Thank goodness for over the counter meds, i.e. Gravol and cold/flu tablets.

As you saw, I did manage to get in to cover a festival that is happening “inworld” however, I was so brain fogged, that I wrote it up on this blog instead of the virtual blog… oh well. C’est la vie… it was done.. It is one of those times when the little voice whispers.. “get over it” “move on”.

How are you doing? I finally got around to reading my e-mails and messages, thank YOU to each and everyone of you who reached out.. I appreciated your words and support.

Today I am going to try and see if I can find the turkeys and get a picture. The other day the little brats were lazing about in the P 21 parking lot.. it would have been a beautiful picture, but as soon as my car came to a stop at the end of the lot… they got off their various perches and sauntered off into the tall grasses and out of sight. No amount of sweet talk influenced them. In fact my arrival threw the raven who was visiting with them into a real temper tantrum and he began to verbally hurl his thoughts about my arrival at me. What a voice, loud and guttural, there was no missing his message or his annoyance.

Your smile can create an instant connection. A warm smile brightens everyone around you and has the power to break down barriers between people.

My smile has no effect on crows, ravens, or turkeys. just saying!

Sept. 11 – Oneness

I sat by the water this morning and carved.
The chick-a-dee tried very hard to distract me, it was sure I must have a seed or nut somewhere on my person. Why else would I be sitting in the middle of the forest with a stick, making a mess.. all around me were the pieces of bark and wood that were falling away as I diligently smoothed the surface I was working on.

Good morning… started this yesterday.. it is another day. I enjoyed it, today I won’t have time to sit and bask in a quiet meditation by the water… I will drive out and put feed out for the birds and then head for church. I am only putting out small portions, enough to keep the area “interesting” for them… There is still an abundance of food in the forest for them that they can forage and gather for the winter. I want to share with them, not change their normal behaviours…

Today is Ancestors Day, our Ancestors’ Day ceremony at church will take place at 10 a.m. we celebrate this “day” every 11th of the month. One of our members was rushed to hospital last night, please add in your prayers today, a word of support and healing for all in our community that require that extra energy today. Physical distance is not a factor in a spiritual connection. WE are all ONE.

You can be with God by having a prayerful mind. Let’s pray for World Peace. We are all one big family. Let’s start by praying for the happiness of those around us.

PL (Perfect Liberty) is International, let’s us reach out in prayer today – express our gratitude for the love and virtues of our ancestors and ask for their protection and guidance so we can continue to live to live the PL WAY.

overdoing?

When we are constantly doing something… when the day seems to disappear and you are still doodling, there seems to be no end in sight to the “this and that” that are on your “to do ” list.

Are you overdoing things? Not only do you harm yourself when you overdo things, but you may be imposing on others as well.

When we are mindful, we appear to process information with our full bodies rather than simply the mind.

Lost Sunday on Monday

photo Shirley Keen, NZ

Where do days go that get lost? How come today is another day, yesterday was Sunday, did I miss it? I think not. It was a busy day, one of those days where it begins at 5:20 a.m. give or take… and the next thing you now its after 9 pm and you are tired, and ready for bed. Let me see, a friend got married Saturday evening, a lovely ceremony, I did the photos, posted them, and then.. yes, I got to bed at a reasonable hour, why did my day Sunday start so early? Guess I just won’t know where the day went, after all, it is time now to focus on today.

Babble, babble, chatter, a fleeting memory and then poof … its been replaced by some other idea/thought… pause.. review yesterday’s lesson …

It’s easier to adapt to something when we find it interesting. No matter how enjoyable a situation is, a slight change in our attitude can make it boring. let’s face any situation with curiosity and enthusiasm.

I am forever grateful for all of you who share with me over the days, months and yes even years. Whether it is with your waves, hello/greetings, or the time you take to share your wonderful thoughts/experiences. Life is richer when we share, when we care about others, and when we grow in appreciation of the world around us and all that it has to offer.

“In the infinity of life, where I am, all is perfect, whole and complete.” Be open to the abundant flow of prosperity that the Universe offers. “My good comes from everywhere and everyone. All is well in my world” (Louise L. Hay)

rain come again another day

this is Chapman Mills on a sunny day (conservation area west end Ottawa)

Think “now is the time” instead of “It’s no use now” don’t give up by thinking it’s too late. Tell yourself that there is more that can be done.

After the rain the sun will shine again.. it will it always does…

No matter how hard a situation is, face it head on… there is always a way..

Grief is the agony of an instant, the indulgence of grief the blunder of a life.

Benjamin Disraeli

Loss is painful. It’s natural for us to grieve over things we’ve lost. And it takes time to fill the hole left by a loss. The larger t he hole, the longer it takes to fill it. At some point, though, we need to put painful feelings aside sot hat we can get on with the business of living. this doesn’t mean ignoring or forgetting our loss, but, rather recognizing that life is a gift that we have a responsibility to honor. We honor what we have lost as well when we learn from our loss, incorporate it into who we are and move on. Loss is natural and unavoidable. I understand and accept t his.

Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.

being objective…

sun and shadows.. create a moment of tranquility

When you get stuck, take a step back. When you are able to see things objectively, your viewpoint will change and you will receive new wisdom.

How many times have I gotten up, read the lesson of the day, taken it in and moved on with my day… its not till later in the day that the morning lesson steeps in, and I have a light bulb moment. So often in these times, we are multi-tasking, running from one ‘thing to do” to another… let’s remember to take that moment in the day to reflect on “are you being kind to yourself!!”

Remember the mailboxes yesterday, how many of you saw the address on the mailbox… 5501 – giving us another 2 for that day =^_^= (2.22.22)…. … did you see it? or miss it?

Have a great day everyone! Remember life is to be lived.. be kind to yourself!!

Your smile is what is needed. A smile invites happiness and cheer and is essential to energize others as well as yourself.

Yesterday a friend called who had just been told one of his/her parental units had covid. Symptoms were mild, never-the-less it was confirmed it was covid. The parent had both vaccines and the booster, never-the-less it was concerning. In PL. we try to accept everything that happens to us and around us, as a way to reinforce a positive way of creatively dealing with opportunities that come our way.

In the last couple of years we have been “reacting” to the word “covid” and any and all other references to this “disease” in our atmosphere. It isn’t always easy to be and stay positive.. but it is in being positive and appreciative that we will make changes that will benefit all of mankind.

Personally, I have learned to come to terms with negativity that has shadowed my world for some time. Time has opened my eyes to the knowledge that there are circumstances that are beyond my control or my ability to “fix”. Any change that is going to happen has to begin with “me” and my behaviour.

Love is a word that is brandied around and used for all kinds of reasons, people, places and things. is it a verb or a noun??? An emotion? a feeling? how many times in a day do you use the word, and how many times while using the word are you filled with passion, contentment, pleasure, joy and happiness.

How many of us live in a world filled with love – yet feel we are in a vacuum, or are totally alone even if we are in a room full of people.

When I read today’s calendar ” your smile is what’s needed”….. yes, I agree, but anyone can smile, you can mechanically make your face smile. what I want to know is do you feel it.. When you smile are you happy.

Covid is a word. It has history, it has meaning, but it is a word. If we don’t want to be cold when we go out in the Canadian winter, we wear appropriate clothes… If its raining and we don’t want to get wet, we bring along an umbrella. If my mate is hungry and wants to eat, it doesn’t mean that I’m hungry and need to eat. We are all individuals and unique in our needs/wants etc. It is important to recognize and realize that the same applies to how we respond to words that are used.

When every door is given a special decoration – there isn’t a door in the house that isn’t showing off a beaming “happy holidays” decoration. The owners of this special haven get better and better each year at pulling together a look that shouts “HAPPY HOLIDAYS’ to everyone who passes by, or has the pleasure of an actual indoor tour.

Thursday doors everyone.. I know this is Friday, but you can still enjoy touring other doors by visiting Dan’s site https://nofacilities.com/2021/12/02/random-duluth-doors/

Improve yourself to have a kinder heart. Do what you can to be caring and considerate to make others happy.

A home says a lot about the people who live in them. This home is filled with love and joy of many many bouncing whippets and borzoi …

I am very blessed to have these two human beings in my life and consider them family. I’m so proud of what they do and the love they give to each and every little heart that comes into their lives.

Till soon. This is the month to shine with holiday decorations, but the love that we shine out to the world with our smiles/friendships is priceless.
