How are you

 

IMG_0885While out driving the other day. I reflected on that question myself.  We are asked, at least I am, on a fairly regular basis.  I was out driving the back roads, and needed to find my way, or get my bearings.  After a while, the farm land was starting to all look the same. In other words I was getting weary, and needed a change.  Searching the skies I saw a steeple off in the distance, in the countryside here, both in Quebec and Ontario, you can always count on a church steeple to guide you towards “civilization”

It was a peaceful day for me, and certainly the quiet appeal of the church sitting, basking in the sun, added to my “mood”.  The manicured lawn and large paved entrance was a huge contrast to the visions I had been enjoying on the back roads. Another visual of the differences in life.

I am fine, thank you to all who have asked. Life IS different, my personal space has been reconfigured.  To that end, all my past experiences, adventures, and lessons have served me well.  Possibly the enormity of the change has not quiet fully dawned on me, but it is present.  I feel it, and I do intellectually “know” it.  So yes I am fine, but am I REALLY fine,I think it is too soon to tell.  No one can predict the future. And, every day is NEW.

No two friendships are alike, therefore, how I am although influenced at times by my immediate circle of friends, changes, why, because at the core of it all is ME.  And the secret I am sharing, is that Me, myself and I is constantly being kept busy with the help of the Universe, with reminders that I am never alone.  Service yesterday at the church, where the ceremony of appreciation to our Ancestors and those who have helped us become who we are, was performed.  For me was very calming and spiritually refreshing.

For that is a focused prayer of appreciation and thanks to all my family. friends, past and present who make me the person I am today. I like me, and I really and truly do appreciate each and every one of you, for you touch me in ways that transcend mortal definitions.  Love is PEACE.

brazil, que mais?

an early birthday surprise….

Many years ago, I would not have known who Neymar Jr was, nor would I have wanted  a futbol shirt. See how time changes us.  Time and the various experiences we live shape our development.  A stint in  a Spanish country, a visit to the French seaside, life is full of possibilities.  Each step we take outside our comfort zone, makes us stronger.

Tomorrow the 11th. in PL we will be celebrating Ancestors day.  In some countries it is already tomorrow.  For my many friends on the same time-table as myself, wake to a new day, and be thankful for who you are today.

Show your appreciation by giving back to the world around you.

(PL day 11 on our calendar)

IMG_0912Sending my love and deep appreciation to each and every one of you.  I am grateful that you share part of my world with me.  Oyashikiri

 

blueberry day

 

cukes 4

you are right’

there is not a blueberry in sight

the cukes are fine

certainly not the same

is a nickel a dime?

oh gosh and darn

maybe a tomato, cucumber sandwich will do

nope, the thought does not appeal

Only blueberries will calm

so sound the alarm

I will be up at dawn

for that sweet, tantalizing taste

of fresh blueberries sold by the case

water colour 3.30

Sometimes we just have to make do

there are no blueberries, there is nothing to do, but wait.

tomorrow will be another day.               tomorrow will come and I will no longer want blueberries.. maybe?  What do you think?

Sweet dreams dear friends.  If your cloud floats near mine, please wave.

Smile as you pass by,  I will feel your vibe… and pass it on.

save the bees

Bom Dia,  A happy greeting to you..

Today, while picking up a newspaper for my husband, I spied this colourful book. Bring Back the Bees by Paulette Bourgeois and Josee Bisaillon.  It was so eye catching that I asked to see it. Hello, it is a give away at Chapters Indigo.  It is Produced by Kids Can Press, and sponsored by Honey Nut Cheerios.

It has beautiful illustrations, rendered in watercolour, collage and digital

I am very interested in saving the bee population, and believe that more awareness is needed … therefore I am sharing this information with you.for more info. bringbackthe bees.ca

domingo, segunda feira

water colour 3.30

Sunday Monday – Happy start of the week everyone….

Bom dia…thought to start the week off with some colour.  this was a water-colour I started, it has advanced several steps since the picture, but.. that was the beginning or part of it anyway.  Blending, and marrying of different colours, adding texture, and different strokes applied with changing the brush. Sometimes it works, sometimes it is a surprise.

Life is Art, (PL Precept #1) how we decide on what steps we will take, to address challenges/opportunities, will dictate the outcome.  We can either accept what we “see” or take creative measures to embellish or completely change what “was”

PL Calendar -day 2- Be Forever Young and Seek New Challenges

The world is constantly in motion and never rests.  Keep your senses sharp and be ready to adapt to the ever-changing world.

HI. =^_^=   Wanted to show you a page from one of my art journals.  This picture so delighted me at the time, I couldn’t pass along the magazine or get rid of it.  Finally I started an Art Journal, or a Junk Journal… in it, I put in the various  ” art pieces” that have caught my attention.  This is one I wanted to use today, but… didn’t fit.  So adding it in a post script.

Life offers us so much that challengers our creativity, it is staggering.  I love it.

I accept that life isn’t always “fun” but it is powerful, it is an emotion that transcends words, happiness is LOVE  and LOVE is GOD.

Happy Saturday!

baby banana's

Baby bananas how cute is that.

Come on now. Baby bananas.

Have a banana-rama  Saturday everyone.  Catch the rays, ride the trails, simply kick back relax and enjoy what the world has to offer.

Listen **    See **  Accept ***

PL calendar #24    Focus your “eyes” and “ears” towards the expression of others without any preconceived notions.  Then you will be able to see their true intentions.

Listen and See with Careful attention and Accept Each Other
