The other day, I drove by a work site, and saw the mounds of earth, with their new growth. It rocked with me I loved it. So much so, that I went back and drove into the construction site, to take pictures.
My very own treasure chest, the dry earth, the cracks, loved it all. I really do marvel at the way nature provides me with such wonders. actually it is for everyone, but some how I don’t think everyone gets as chuffed up as I do about such things.
To have had a macro lens I would have been up there trying to catch every nook and cranny that took my fancy.
We are all different, we all take in the world around us in our own way. That is what makes the environment and the populations in it, so intriguing and inspiring.
PL Precept #9 Human Beings are ALL Equal
and we are all unique in our own way. What bounty, what tremendous source of inspiration … live happy, be happy, learn, grow and pass it on.
PL Precept #15 All is a Mirror
My love to each and every one of you. Oyashikiri
visions that danced before my eyes
simple beauty that caused my mind to stray
Every day we have the chance to see an array of colours, that really do take the breath away. Yet, somehow we fail to let the quiet impressions of calm, take hold and keep us in a serene state for the rest of the day. Instead we are affected by the sometimes negative incidents that pop up to distract and cause us to stumble or hobble.
It is at such times that I am reminded how priceless good friends are. A kind word, a gentle nudge towards a happier experience. little steps can go a long way. Rain may fall, but the sunshine will always return. Always.
and so, the hours passed the mind tired of wandering down rocky pathways, and returned to wander blissfully towards the captivating land of dreams. The flowers still smiled and waved from their happy beds, only this time their cheerfulness stayed to lead the way. Sleep will come and tomorrow will be another day.
I loved the gummies, anyone care to translate… (when I figure out this bilingual keyboard I will know how to do a question mark )
PL Precept #16 Each moment is a turning point
This is a piece of pie (she said)
let me explain,
it is my second piece of pie (she said)
fresh baked, rhubarb & strawberry crumble
a dab of whipped cream
teamed with a fresh pot of tea
not a dream, no
I really intend to eat the whole thing
Yes, that is what she said….
I did it! I did it!
So pleased was she, not a crumb was to be seen
that was one dessert
that made an impact
for now it is a fact
she willingly ate
a second piece of pie
that is no lie
you know who you are!!!!!
you ate 2 pieces of pie.
PL Calendar day 6
Your joy will increase, Once you make up your mind
If you’re going to do it. Do it with determination. your resolve will create good rhythm.
*** my friend made up her mind, she would have a second piece of pie. She did it. We had a jolly time, the calorie count was of no mind. They will be counted another time. =^_^= *****

Wisdom is a divine endowment – not a human acquisition
Happiness is not the absence of conflict, but the ability to deal with it
Found this quote in one of my profiles. I for some reason, did not note where I got it from, but the words aren’t mine, however, at the time, I must have connected with the sentiment.
There are days when I feel like “ I am” on a stage … that I am rehearsing or going through a chapter that is “in progress”. For sure, what I am living is my personal experience. Today while in meditation, I revisited, or tried to, my interpretation of an event that is yet to happen. Then the spotlight shone down on me, and I knew I had to be in the present. To succeed I have to be present.
Every frame of the “scenes” being lived, needed my focus on the present if I was to even “live” to experience the pending “event”
Ah life, it is a beautiful exhilarating happening, isn’t it.
Enjoy the first day of a new month.
Happy Canada day everyone!
PL Precept # 11 Allways be with GOD
No, not lost where you don’t know where you are, just “lost” when you stand in one place and feel that at that moment, you are in many places. The shadows, the lush vegetation, the multiple shades of green. AND of course the almost hidden old wooden building in the background.
My adventure companion and I had arrived in Merrickville, her for ice cream, and me, for no real reason but to share time with a friend and enjoy the outing. Then I saw this place and was instantly transported to many places at once. I saw New Hampshire, the Laurentians, southern NY state, it was an amazing feeling, it wrapped itself in a hug and vanished,
Such moments are not uncommon, but they are not “ordinary” we have to be tuned in to “receive the frequency”. Be present in your every day life. Live each moment! Live with appreciation .. give thanks!
PL day 11 (calendar)
BE THANKFUL FOR WHO YOU ARE TODAY
You are standing here thanks to your ancestors, your parents and those who have supported you through your life. Show your appreciation by giving back to the world around you.
Not really but the colours appealed to me. I did however resist bringing it home. I have been busy for weeks now cleaning up, doing a major spring cleaning. So much to be done, true I didn’t need to do it right away, but, type AAA that I am, once I know something has to be done. I make it happen. In a way, I got on my own carpet and worked “magic”.. I revved up the old broom and pulled into drive.
Day 9 PL Calendar – Your surroundings are a reflection of YOU.
I believe that to be true. For over a year now, I have been unable to focus on my surroundings, it was no longer a “comfortable” ambiance.
Day 10 PL Calendar – Everyone has their own unique Personality
I have been told “not to do anything major for the next while because, whether I realize it or not, I am going through a “phase of adjustment” So…………..little by little I have been cleaning out… removing “illness” “pain” and “discomfort” Sweeping, cleaning, washing, and making changes, that enhance the “home” ensuring that the “balance” and harmonizing of “energies” comes alive again, and grows with each passing day. A home is where the “heart” is. Always, forever and always.
The next few days will be busy, on Monday the 11th. at 10.am. we will have the Ancestors’ Day ceremony and special prayer and memorial for Brian. Where-ever you are, at 10 a.m. Eastern Standard Time if you are able to, join us in prayer. What a positive VIBE it will be. =^_^=
Blessings dear friends… may the Universe shine down loving rays to warm your days and sprinkle night dreams with enriched star dust.
What to do when your day starts with a “bang” (unpleasant one) and then more or less continues on in similar fashion. During the 10 a.m service today, (Day of Peace) I found myself crying thinking of what happened early before I got to the church.
The dog got his tail chopped off by a closing door. My precious baby.. yelped, then I saw the piece of tail on the floor and the trail of blood as he escaped into the house. Such misery, such helplessness.. I could only react. Meanwhile his sister who is white, was now looking like a red dalmatian and blood was everywhere, on me and on the carpets. Didn’t matter all I wanted to do was pick him up and hold him to me… of course that did wonders for my outfit. When I finally got to church, I realized that I still had blood on me, and my clothes. What a sight.
Fortunately the vet made a house call. I was so relieved. We are all resting comfortably, the human will be taking to her bed very early. Oh dear, just remembered have to check on the laundry. Used cold water. back.. looks like all the stains came out. ahh sigh.
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.
During all of today’s “activities”, I picked up the memory candle from the Funeral home, isn’t it pretty, there is a small compartment that is sealed under it. During the service, the candle is lit. I had never seen these before. I am comforted that it is home with me now.
Life is what it is. I need to slow down, and let my journey set the pace for peaceful healing.
