ho ho hope!

Good morning everyone… the season is on us. Songs on the radio, a special channel devoted to the music of the season. On the telly we have the Hallmark channel already showing their “feel good” movies. What about us, you and me, the marketing departments, the promotions, adverts, they are all prepared. In the States I guess it will happen real quick like once their Thanksgiving is over. No I don’t usually speak this way, (real quick like) but I liked the sound. The keys flowed with a rhythm.

It is early, but the snow machines are out, I can hear them rolling down the sidewalk. In some way, form or another, we have started to think of how we will portion ourselves up to be with friends, family and loved ones. On a personal level, we are not companies that can delegate and assign different tasks to various departments to reach a goal, we have to do it for ourselves.

In a conversation recently it was suggest that I be the adult and this meant in the situation we were discussing, that I should be more responsible myself. and take action accordingly. Had me wondering just what it means to be an adult. We (as parents) were the ones rushing around getting gifts, hiding them all to make “others” (we hoped) happy an surprised on Xmas day. But……………………. what about us, the individual, what is it about being an adult that sets us apart, from the ones who have dreams and wishes. Why are we responsible for making others happy.

In PL we believe that each and everyone of us, is responsible for US. If I cannot make myself happy, how can I expect someone else to make me happy. Be true to one’s SELF. We live a moment and we move on. Also we want others to be happy and we do our best to open our hearts to them. That is why we pray for the guidance to enable us to be a “good person” and to do our best for others and society. Adult or otherwise*, these are the teachings of PL.

friendship -Peace

Sometimes I save a picture from somewhere, usually I will note were I found it, this time I did not. Finding it in my folder, I thought it we a good visual for today.

Friendships are so varied, if we look at our list of friends, each is so different, with his/her own personality, and characteristics, yet when we are with them, there is that glow of friendship that happens, making whatever event or activity you are doing together.. a celebration of that friendship.

Some we see often, and some, seldom. Yet we know them and find comfort in that friendship. When you connect with another human being, keep it honest and sincere. The friendship circle will widen.

Life without friends can be very empty.

On the 1st of the month, in Perfect Liberty we celebrate and pray for World Peace.

World Peace starts from Peace at Home. Your life is part of the bigger world beyond you. Start with your surroundings and spread peace to the world around you.

Friday Funk

Oh yes, it can start out very bleak …. however I know it will change, with or without Bell Canada and their inability to fix an errand e-mail glitch. Allow me one teensy weenie vent..”the problem has been occurring for months, every couple of days? aahhhhhh… that felt better.

Now the colour is coming back =^_^= I actually got a canvas the other day to explode some colour on. My friend Mollie beat me to it, she posted a wonderful painting in the brilliant colours that have been displayed in her area. You’ve inspired me Mollie.

Myself I have been busy working on Xmas greetings, and little this and thats. Today finally I can go for my flu shot. They have been delayed, altho’ some areas, have had them, many are still waiting.

Enjoy the process and savour it. The feeling you have when you’ve seen something through to the end is awesome, but the true joy lies in the actual execution of the plan.

Have fun… just because!

Bonnie

Do my friends know me .. or what…

Bonnie is away celebrating the Thanksgiving (Canadian) long week-end with family in other parts of the Province. She saw this and stopped to capture it, knowing she would delight me to pieces when I opened her e-mail.

I noted Bonnie you remained a lady, and unlike me, didn’t go over and take pictures all around the vehicle, and even try to waylay the owner. =^_^=

Friends are worth their weight in gold, and more. Have a good day everyone. Ancestor’s day service will begin at 10:a.m. this morning.

tools

I was reading a friends blog recently, he lives in Japan, and writes about the use of and the caring of good carving tools https://covingtonandsons.com/2019/10/04/sharpening-part-10-the-ura-%e6%b5%a6/ While reading his blog I was hit with the similarity of looking after one’s tools, and the maintaining of friendships. When we don’t look after our tools, they stop performing for us the way they were intended to perform. Especially a carving tool. A good crafts person, knows that it is essential he/she maintain his/her tools in good working order if the quality of work is to be preserved.

When a friendship is taken for granted, or mistreated, will it withstand the neglect or at times, miscommunication. In PL we learn that life is about us, and that we re responsible for our feelings. So I muse on if I feel slighted, or taken for granted, then it is up to me, to what…. dismiss the situation, put it aside and move on.

Not let it happen again, simply do not put your self in the position again. hmmmm the little voice says…. you could miss out on something…. you enjoy that friend. Did they intentionally set out to hurt you. The answer is no. It is simply their actions, were not appreciated by my sensitivities.

Darn being a philosopher is hard. I likely will opt for a good cry. Have a good nights sleep, and tomorrow, begin another day.

Now please everyone, don’t be sad or feel that I am blue.. I am living the moment, and will then move on. Life is too beautiful and inspiring, tomorrow I will be wide eyed and living my adventure.

gentle falling rain, will eventually, etch its presence in rock.

a shadow will change with the movements of the sun

a cloud is temporary

love is forever and unconditional

and, I am what I am, a temporary traveler in this space and time

Life is filled with a collection of memories A fellow blogger (Chris) https://milfordstreet.wordpress.com/2019/09/28/curtiss-p-40/?c=28448#comment-28448 is visiting a vintage aircraft show this week-end. To fellow lovers of such planes, visit his site. He has taken some great photos and will be there again today taking more.

Sometimes we get to share wonderful adventures with others. A well traveled road is a GREAT one. Sharing with a friend is such a blessing.

Enjoy the day! Oyashikiri

Success

Have you ever wanted to roam free in the wilds of your country, province, or state? Some of us dare to follow our dreams, and take to the woodlands despite physical limitations, if there is a will, there is a way.

Success doesn’t just happen. It is not just by coincidence that things go well. The results are based on the hard work you have put in up until that moment. Remember to be thankful and use your current success to reach the next level.

We are blessed to live in a country where there an abundance of natural woodlands for us to enjoy. Please, let us dedicate ourselves to taking care of our home lands and environments world wide.
