Peaceful moment

Sydney Australiaa quote by Khalil Gibran

Yesterday is but today’s memory and tomorrow is today’s dream

PL Calendar – day 18     Look forward to what’s ahead – There is no use brooding over the past  Always try to begin each day anew with a fresh outlook.

Life is Art

Mother Nature 4.27.17

I came, and went, laughed, cried, blossomed and flew away.

You missed that moment, didn’t you?

A moment comes, and vanishes, within seconds,

true intentions come from the heart

no day is like another

a moment lost in anger

is time not lived in happiness

with winter comes a calming bliss

purity and stillness

no matter the chaos around us

when we are present in every way

a moment is never missed

life is what we make of it

choices we make,

be happy today, make it a special day

why, because you can!

IMG_1544

Always applaud others as well as yourself

PL Calendar day 22  – When someone notices something you have done and praises you, you feel invigorated.  So let’s praise and applaud the efforts of others as well

Aplaudir as pessoas e a si mesmo

 

You coming in?

question of the day

Well hello there, and just where have you been?

Oh have I been away?

I have not heard from you or seen you?

Ah, but that doesn’t mean I have been away

I was merely playing in the present, and

yesterday got away.

You are you, others are others.

You have your own way of doing things, an others have their way of doing things.  Don’t worry about what other people will say.  Simply take care o the task at hand.

You are loved and cherished, every single moment of the day.

Smile, share the blessing of life.

Good morning, bom dia, at the start of another beautiful day. 8 in my world is considered a lucky number.  I just happened to have my camera ready when Nick had his back turned.  Nick is one of a pair.  Mel his beautiful and talented wife was, we soon discovered, watching us from other part of the museum where she was stuck behind a short wall.  It was my good fortune that the two decided to take a day trip up to visit. Heck they only live some 11, 12 hours away.  Let me tell you they are very special.

I got to see a lot of interesting exhibits as we wandered the museum, but the greatest gift for me was to share time with friends that I have grown to love.  They bring such caring and open sharing when they are visiting.  Every visit is like a homecoming.  The laughter is genuine, such friendships are treasured.

IMG_1515Possessions can be acquired,  They can be enjoyed and cared for, but having good friends, and time spent in warm, comforting camaraderie.  That is a blessing.  It was a wonderful visit, I thank them both.

PL calendar day 7    Don’t strain, don’t rush, and don’t be greedy

When you are doing something, you may rush things to get good results quickly.  Instead, relax and enjoy he process.

I can only imagine how as the friendship grows, we will appreciate even more our differences, and our sameness.

One of life’s lessons, to be practiced and lived  – appreciate differences, everyone is unique, share with an open heart.

Rain on the 417

October 19_004

Bom Dia, Good Morning,  For those of you who do not live in the area, the 417 is the highway that takes one from Ottawa, to Montreal. It is a divided highway, two lanes going east, and two lanes going west .  The landscape between here and Montreal yesterday was beyond spectacular.

oct 31_015

The weather forecast was rain and more rain.  Ottawa was predicted to have heavy rains most of the day.  Montreal less so.  When we left, we were not expecting a great sun-filled or colourful day.  There was no sun, not even a glimmer or hint of sun.  BUT the colours were out of this world.  Brilliant, rich, full of drama, it was often gasping wow moments. It truly was mesmerizing, I couldn’t get enough of it.  Never have I been so enthralled with a rainy, misty foggy day.

oct 31_008

My co-pilot was just as blown away as I was, our conversations were constantly being interrupted with our reaction to the scenery we were driving through.  Sorry no pictures it was raining too hard,  this is an extremely busy, highway.  Suffice to say, it was often surreal. The rain was so heavy that it drenched the barks of the trees, so that they stood out, like  inked ebony sculptures dripping with leaves of wet glistening golds, and often fiery burnished copper would stand out majestically against a stand of evergreens.

oct 31_007

We don’t go out expecting to be presented with endless miles of Natural wonders…. but when it happens, friends, you feel truly blessed.  The ride home was foggy and we had the rush hour traffic for part of it, but the ride to our destination, was gift.  A picture would not do it justice, we had to live it.  Live it we did.  What a day, it was glorious, yeah, really… that great.  Neither one of us expected such a 3D high-definition all out mind-blowing show…but the heavens provided and we reaped the rewards.

Life can be exhausting, but it can also be simply divine, when you least expect it to.

Quiet Sunday

Good morning, bom Domingo   I’ve pulled up this picture again, because when I look at it, I feel a calm. It reminds me of something that I just can’t put  my finger on. *magic*  I imagine small dainty  like figures in white flowing chiffon gowns, garlands in their hair, twinkling laughter floating through the air, while they whirl and twirl to some imaginary music, that is unheard with my earth-bound hearing.  Is it an enchanted circle, could be,.

I will be doing special prayers today, for members, their families and you my friends, near and far.  When sharing with you, the enchanted circle is within reach,  we will bid farewell to the summer that was, and fly happily into the next chapter of our lives.

Love, appreciation & gratitude that is shared, is a true blessing indeed.

Oyashikiri

Go in peace today, feel the spirits of the Universe carry you forward in a halo of light.
