I see this fallen tree every time I walk the trail at Mer Bleu.. and always I stop and ponder… could I walk across it. I want to try, I’ve looked at the distance I would fall if I lost my balance, not that far a drop, altho’ I am no longer in my twenties.. 30’s even.. so I hesitate. Maybe if I have someone with me when I attempt it… we shall see.
You can only change yourself. Before you start telling peple how they should do things, think of how you can be more flexible.

One never knows what will catch your attention when you are out wandering.
I love this time of year. Today I actually heard the buzzing sound of mosquitos .. we are experiencing warm weather and the next 5, 6, days will be more of the same, actually it is said that this year we will have an unusually warm summer.
Always be cheerful, happy and good humoured. When you make effort to be cheerful and happy, you will naturally begin to feel that way.
Your feelings of appreciation become real when you express them. Express your feelings of appreciation by actually saying.. “thank you” out loud or by doing something to show how you feel. Not only will the person you are thanking feel good, but you will too, leading to better things in the future.

Have you heard the expression… not my monkey, not my zoo -this is what kept going through my head last night, I even wrote out several times in a journal page, something I have not done in a long time. “It is none of my business, let it go…”
Take action without thinking too hard. No matter how hard you try to foresee the future, you really don’t know how things will turn out. Do your best and see how it plays out.

Grief is the agony of an instant, the indulgence of grief the blunder of a life.
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.
Love is a feeling, love is an emotion, love is so many things at different times of ones’ life. When I wander the woodlands, I am happy. The further along I get, the more drawn in I am to the beauty of the land around me. You have noted I often will end a visit with “love always”. Moments like the above when I stop moving, and allow the environment to surround me with its beauty, and song. I am content, I feel a sense of Oneness with my surroundings. I feel love.. Knowing such moments, allows me to love freely.
The sun shining through the trees, glistening over the water surface. Awesome.
“Let’s have a humble mind. Once you think, “That’s good enough,” you become blind to the opportunities to be more creative.

“2022/4/28 [Always use positive expressions] If you’re going to express it, let’s express it positively. If you are willing to do it instead of being reluctant to do it, you will gain a sense of fulfillment as a person. It’s more interesting and fun to be active than negative. You will be happy to express everything boldly, and you will be able to enjoy a deep sense of fulfillment, and your personality will be revealed indefinitely.” Translated in Japan to English.
Finding my way through bramble, brush,& fallen trees, was a challenge I gave myself today See the small opening, once the vegetation gets going, this is barely visible. I thought I could follow the animal trails and explore beyond the initial growth. forgetting that the animals using the trails are on all fours and much shorter than my human 5.3″ frame. I had to push aside the branches with thorns and duck under the bigger branches that wouldn’t push aside.. Curiosity drove me forward.
I did come across a small clearing that at one time someone or persons had tried to put up some kind of shelter. the picture on the right, you can see there is a shelf of some kind.. not sure if someone perched on it, or it was used for ??. There was no clear access to this area, not now anyway… so how long ago this area was used and what it was used for, is unknown to me. I spent time rummaging around looking for clues, but if there were any, they eluded me.
When I finally headed out back to the more “civilized” part of the woods, I found I was not where I thought I was, and had wandered off course, I could only get to the main “path/road” by crossing over or through water. and then making my way up a rather steep incline. How About that.. I had wanted to explore, well… hello unexpected…. I tried going one way, following the water’s edge.. looking for a place but I was blocked by really dense branches, shrubs etc. I turned to retrace my steps.. and saw a lone figure coming along the upper road (the one I was trying to get to).. hello I called.. and surprise, the voice that answered was a friend…(who had just texted me, cuz she saw my car in the parking lot)
When there is a need, the Universe “answers” – sometimes two heads are better than 1…. I made it out, and then went on to walk with her for awhile… There is always yin/yang it was a wonderful experience but all the hacking through brush and hiking over rough terrain jarred my ribs again.. – smile you are on camera!!!!!! tsk tsk some people just never learn……would I do it again… yes….. life is G O O D, dragons appear everywhere.
Praying before taking action changes the outcome. Have clear wishes and do your best. Then something new will open up for you.
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.

I pass this warrior almost daily… Some days he is on duty, other days if he is there I don’t see him, yet obviously he is always there. In life, that happens often, maybe too often. Working towards being aware, is a full time occupation. With time, the many MUST see/do that occur in one’s life fade, or take on a different priority.
Being a diabetic, there are steps I should take every day. Do I? The honest answer is NO… do I realize that I am in the process of major changes.. that life for me has taken on a different hue, shading if you will, yes .. in the background there is still that AAA personality.. that need to “do”.. to “act” … but with time, there has also been another “voice” that has risen from within.. a gentler voice, a quieter voice, but one that needs hearing non-the-less. By no one else, but me.. I need to listen and let it be heard.
Like the warrior, all the elements of nature that have wrapped or woven energy around me over time, have shaped and left scars, some I can see, and others I may no longer see, but I feel the wound as if it was yesterday.
The ancient tree can no longer return to life as a sapling, his gnarled existence is who and what he is. His many years of life he wears proudly, his scars and open wounds are badges of honour he wears openly for all to see. I a human, can I do the same…?
