migraine moments

clarity is blanketed

the body’s message loud and clear, STOP, don’t move, lie down,close your eyes, focus on your breathing. Let the swirling debris of sediment settle fill the cracks, and allow the mind time to regroup and fall where it may.

let definition settle where it may

STOP trying to introduce brilliant, vibrant and chaotic energy into the reality of NOW. There is a world of discovery at your feet, stop looking into the distance, there is a whole world to be discovered and rediscovered.

With all the negativity of late in the press, media and being spoken and conversed about…. my brain needed a change of venue.

I have a very special friend, who in introducing me to the America he knows, sent me a video that stirred my emotions and left me wanting more. I searched YouTube and found this video by Ann M. Wolf. I would like to share it with you. please feel free to pass on having a look, if it is not of interest to you.

https://youtu.be/9-Lf9WTiawQ This is a video on the flag folding ceremony of the flag of the United States of America. It was done as a dedication to Honor Guards and the fallen from across America.

Church service today is at 10 a.m. and I believe that Reverend Eugene is going to try to send out a video of same.

There will always be a way. If you persist and be creative without giving up, you will find solutions that you had not considered before.

a bit of history

from the past

Why this review of the past… I have felt so strongly in recent times, that some of what we all need to remember, is that the wonderful wonders we take for granted , were not always in our lives. We fought long and hard, and dealt with a lot of fighting to achieve the world we live in today.

picture and text taken from Pinterest

WE are currently living in a modern form of war, the landscapes of our lives are showing us challenging times. Many of us, are dealing with an inner war, freedom vs. captivity. Countries are drawing lines and taking sides. Not all news is biased, not all reporting is factual. There are times when omission is just as much a lie as what is said.

In PL. (Perfect Liberty) we strive to live Precept 21, Live in Perfect Liberty.

Not everyone is interested in planes… except if you are boarding one to go on holiday, or to attend a business meeting.. It is a mode of transportation. The above video, will show you a side of the airplane and what a whole mass of people who lived, or live a totally different life than you do.

WE (humanity) are all ONE, we are born, live and die… and each one of us will have our own unique “story” PL Precept #10 Love yourself and others.

PL Precept # 14 World Peace is Everything. Learn from the past, honor the lives lost from all countries. Peace begins at home, in our hearts, in how we live our lives, how we interact with others. Start with what you can control, and that is your own behaviour.

PL Precept #6 Efface your self conceptions. Dare to listen to everything you hear and see with an open mind. Before jumping in.. think.. will my action(s) create peace and goodwill, if not.. please take a moment to reflect.

PL Precept #18 Each moment is a turning point.

A man can get discourage many times, but he is not a failure until he begins to blame somebody else and stop trying.

WE are all ONE

Wednesday night out

on a clear day, we can explore forever

I was drawn to the outdoors today. we are fortunate to live where we can enjoy a huge expanse of open countryside, and the ocean. I really needed a break from the news coverage of the unrest and disrespect for human diversity. Fortunately I do have a place to escape.

Girls night out – DJ Yume is rocking the tunes

The music is loud and we are rocking. Rose in the middle, Yume on the right and yours truly on the left. We are at Tango’s a club that offers a variety of music, depending on the evening and the DJs theme.If you are virtual traveller, this is your ticket to ride. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Larius%20River/21/223/15 Dj. Yume takes the stage on Wednesday evenings and Fridays 7 pm SL time.

plays Tuesdays and Saturdays 7 pm. – 9 pm SL time
Wednesdays and Fridays.. 7pm (Tango’s)

There obviously a lot of choices in Second Life.. Silver works at Smokestack, DJing there on Mondays.. for R & R when we want time out.. we visit Tango’s.. the ambience, and friends there make for a great evening of fun.

Usually entertainment and SL news is in my other blog https://virtualnws8.ca/ yes why not… this blog is relatively new, many of you have been following me now through my adventures.. It is not unlike one of my previous ones, where I blogged, the fashion, and entertainment venues of the virtual worlds.. Music makes the world go round. Like the individuals we are.. our musical choices differ too.

With the pandemic all around us, many of us spend more time in SL these days.. While Smokestack is every kind of Blues you can imagine, Tango’s offers a variety of tunes.. and the personality DJs like to throw in themes.

OH wow David Bowie .. let’s dance. https://youtu.be/VbD_kBJc_gI

wish you were here

No one is sitting still,Yume is just rocking out the tunes, and people keep coming. Its a great night..Please keep us in mind when you next want a night out with lots of good tunes.

Earlier in the evening I was visiting with a friend when we found out it was another friend’s birthday….. a party was happening to celebrate our friend’s birthday… (hey Nick! birthday boy guess you just get to keep celebrating) You betcha A.. we got ourselves over to the party. =^_^=

Life would be plain boring without friends! We are surrounded by negativity, it is up to us to find out own way .. round and past the environment that some would cast us in.

In SL, we are from all corners of the Universe. We gather from everywhere, and simply enjoy sharing time, good music and conversation.

Find the peace/love in you and exercise it every day.

PL Precept #1 life is art.

maudlin

photo Dave Renz (day 68)

Yuppers today I woke up with a maudlin mind. My thoughts travelled down roads, through valleys and dales that well…just brought tears that needed to be expressed. Crying doesn’t mean I’m unhappy, it means I am reliving a series of events that tugged at my heart strings.

I talk to you all about love all the time. Love is forever moments that live on in the energy field that is me, myself and I. Crying is cleansing, to allow a tear drop to fall is to allow the sunshine in on a sunny day.

music,singers,song writers, story tellers, what a beautiful world we live in

There will always be a way. If you persist and be creative without giving up, you will find solutions that you had not considered before.

Now I’m off to exercise, walk my many steps, and move. How about you! step, step, step, exercise your brain, your body, your everything. Life is for living.

new new new

old old old

Yesterday, the back yard was glorious in bloom with the new buds from the magnolia. This morning I was out raking up all the fallen petals at 5 a.m. before the heat of the day. Nothing ever stays the same. Enjoy every moment of your day, you can only live it once.

BE a person who can recognize the sincerity of others.

When you put your whole heart into things, you will be able to notice the sincere acts of others in the subtle things they do, and appreciate them that much more.

showing off my avatar – just saying,

Oyashikiri

I’ve been seeing all the FB avatars popping up .. for a bit I got caught up in it… then realized I have my own avatar(s).. and she has been with me awhile, so.. I’ll just show her off. LOL. I don’t need to do another AV, just because you all have discovered avatars. /P

fence shadows &?

experimental farm – Ottawa

You see the fence, then the shadow.. the shadow begins to shift, but the fence post, remains in place. Where did the jacket, shirt and tie come from.?

Be thankful at the beginning and end of each day. Each and everyone of your actions, can inspire peace within your family, your community and the world around you. This peace will eventually help lead to world peace.

will the circle be

broken, or … roll into eternity
once there was a strong bond
that with years of wear and tear compressed into
a band of steel so tight,so unyielding that
when time began to erode the composition
the reason for its existence started to fade
only the inner knowledge that once the fire that had forged that band
was slipping away. Soon when the dust returns to dust
the band of gold that once shone with meaning
will disappear .. into the eternity of time and space
and we will no longer be, you will be free
you always were you know
cages are created by the human mind
sadly when love is caged, it dies.
be free, love again
this time .. it will be forever. Q

Be thankful to your parents and to your ancestors. You are here today because the “torch of life” has been continuously passed down. always remember to be thankful.

Remain true to yourself… never be afraid to express your true feelings.

Stick with it

Don’t give up! Stick with it, as many times as it takes

Sometimes you want to just throw in the towel and say, “I give up” but that’s the time for you to dig deep and push through. Your sincere effort will invite a good outcome.

there are many paths we can take, choose wisely

We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make which, over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee.

You want me to what!

Sometimes, no words are needed. The stance, eyes, ears, say it all. When we look at partners, friends, family, the look might not be as obvious, but there sure is a current that crackles. There is not too much we can do about the reaction of others to our “choices” except, agree to disagree. We are individuals, life would be boring if we were all the same.

No one can take away the joy you get from putting your whole heart into something. The joy you feel when you’ve put your all into something is yours and yours alone. Nobody can take that away from you.
