Yup… we’ve had snow.. it is not staying around, “don’t kid yourself” said the wee voice… you’ve already had your first bad freezing rain drive down the icy snow covered dirt road. So… now what… Big Smile, we can build a snowman, start thinking of a rink, and yes, maybe even give some thought on how to decorate and cheer up the room(s) for the December holidays.

If you are a dog owner/walker you get to see the snow by moonlight, when the dogs need their evening “let out”… I’ve noticed how the snow has a silver almost transparent shine as it gently and silently floats and dances down from the above. There is a light that goes on over the back door when the dogs bounce out into the night, it shines over the deck… it is really very pretty.. and sooooo quiet.

At 5:30 a.m. when I start my day, I get to enjoy the early morning quiet before the activity starts up .. today being Saturday the roads I need to take to get to the conservation area will be less busy. I’m excited, I can leave earlier and spent time with the crows while they have their breakfast. It is a pleasure I allow myself…. they are so grateful. They arrive in such numbers… but still I am starting to be able to tell some of them apart, the “leaders” the noisy ones, then there are the more reserved, even have a clown or two.. their personalities are such fun to observe… especially now that they are getting used to me again. Even have a silly seagull who thinks he is part of the “morning crowd” he sticks out like a sore thumb… give credit to the crows.. they let him/her join in.

Make today a memorable day. Let’s try to put our whole heart into whatever we say or do, as our unique signature.

In PL.. precept # 19 Begin once you perceive. When a thought/feeling comes to mind and we feel we should act… PL Precept # 18 Each moment is a turning Point.

Trust your instincts… trust yourself… PL # 11 Always be with God… when we put our heart into everything we do… we grow, problems become opportunities… remember every day is a new beginning.

Treasure each moment in time. Life is a continuation of now. live your life as fully as possible without regrets.

milder today, still need those winter boots and coats .ENJOY!

day of gratitude

This was the tree limbs back in early 2021, below is what is left.

Below is how the feeding area looks now… I’ve since changed a couple of the feeders but you can see the difference and the setting. (a beautiful wild turkey, I miss them.. they have gone further into the woods for the winter… )

For your info…. Mer Bleue has closed the board walk, it has been blocked off… so has the boardwalk at P6 off Moodie.. At Mer Bleue we are now hosting Evening Grosbeaks, and joy of happiness… they are at P23 too. (Dewberry)…. today was a real winner, I got both the red bellied woodpeckers and the grosbeaks while I was there filling the feeders.. bonus the crackle dropped in.

To everyone celebrating Thanksgiving today… Enjoy!

Be cheerful and friendly with those around you. Other people can sense how you are feeling … so, be cheerful.

Be in tune with the feelings of others. Let’s start by trying to understand other peoples’ feelings.

Put your heart into your words. Do you tend to speak in just a matter- of -fact tone? It is important to put your heart into your words

“I wanted to be home,” he said.. …we both smiled because of course we both knew he had never left my side.

Imagine being everywhere at the same time…. the breeze rustling through the grass, or dancing across the surface on deep blue waters… it is not the physical space but the “moment” that captures and teases the imagination The “energy” the “BEing”

“Listening is also a form of expression. Listen with Makoto (sincerity) ” PL 2022.15

Face the speaker, make eye contact and listen carefully

Listen with “full presence” Be in the moment.

Bom dia

into morning mist….

There is something about the tranquility and peaceful ambience of being in nature in the early morning hours.

Have a prayerful mind to love yourself and others. Open up your heart fully when praying to God. It will help you work out your feelings.

It is your road…

and yours alone to to walk, so much to see, so much to discover.

You will meet and walk with others along the way, but no on can walk the road for you.

Are you overdoing things? Not only do you harm yourself when you overdo things, but you may be imposing on others as well.

21st. Thanksgiving /Appreciation

yesterday at P7 Sarsaparilla Trail

Yes I cheated and put one piece on top of the other.. it was a lovely moment in time, I was wandering around enjoying the open skies, most of the leaves had fallen in the area I was walking…. I could see the fallen soldiers (from that huge storm we had in the spring). Made for a very different landscape from what I had known in the past.

We will never again be able to return to what was… we can only move forward. The forestry personnel have been in tidying up … with the leaves down, we can now really see just how many of the older trees fell over with the strong winds. AND when looking closely, we see just how scarred and battle worn they were. Especially their bodies, how over the years/seasons they had endured a zillion strikes/blows.. they also provided shelter and shade, now they are left to simply BE. Some in pieces, and others just left bare to accept the fate that will come their way.

Today being the 21st we will celebrate the most important service of the month, we humbly express our appreciation to God/Universe for all the blessings of the past month. and sincerely ask to be guided and protected in the coming month. We renew our determination to follow and practice the Perfect Liberty teachings/philosophy… PL Precept #21- Live the PL Way.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Let’s live with gratitude toward everyone and everything all day today.

Special service tonight at 7 pm .

frost – musing

In silence I find myself transcending the NOW of the moment

To the vibrant energy of the forest trail

I see before me the portrait of the life on each leaf – in the textures of the tree bark

I am in awe at the way the frost paints a delicate lace on the landscape that surrounds me

Each picture perfect moment is etched in my consciousness

THIS is LOVE of the rarest kind – it removes the blindfold from my eyes

I am seeing the world again … not just with my eyes

but from the heart and soul of my BEing.

Every day is a gift from God/Universe

Choices – we all have them, we encounter them every day – some we make without really thinking about them, others we give a lot of thought to. With the change of seasons, comes an opportunity to listen closely to our inner voice, and let the past drop, like the soon to be falling leaves. Once lived, it is time to let go. Learn from what was, appreciate now and move forward. Love is a powerful emotion, live with it wisely,

In life there is Yin/Yang, we cannot have one without the other. (positive/negative)

P23 and P22

Yesterday’s journey took me through a golden glow of pure ecstacy. This means, the leaves are in change mode from scrarlet/crimson tones to the sunshine yellows/golds and bronze…

Today is a new day, the start of a new work week. I cleaned out a file drawer last night, I found files back to 2008, some even older. One of the tips to finding mindfulness and calm, is to declutter. Since my husband’s passing, and prior to… I have been doing a slow but steady “clean up” Over the years it is amazing how much we retain, or put away to look at later. What we thought was important to keep .. yet once tucked away, seldom or if ever… looked at again

Somewhere in time I had picked up a book called Stuck on YOU, 140 quirky love quotes that stick in your memory and on your stuff (there were stickers in it at one time) the book is titled, Stuck on you, the heading is… Where there is love . there is life. copyright 2016. In looking at it again, I see the pages tear off, even more interesting to me is the quotes I used (I date or highlight if I something catches my eye)

Here is one, by unknown. ” I wish I could turn back the clock, I’d find you sooner and love you longer.” my little inner voice says… you didn’t find him/her sooner because you were not ready…

Today’s quote from the PL calendar..

Start today with a fresh outlook. Even though people and situations may look the same, they are constantly changing. Start eah day with a fresh mind

Perfect Liberty 2022.

In cleaning out that file drawer, I threw out a lot, but I also found a few treasures that I have put aside for another moment of discovery at a later date. Love has been a constant thread in my life. I love being happy, and loving life brings a lot of happiness.. yes knowing love means you live all the emotions that go with it.. but when love is true, it is all a blessing.

True love doesn’t have a happy ending. True love never ends.
