sabai sabai

thailand“Sabai sabai”

“A ubiquitous Thai phrase.  it is a greeting, ” like hey man, be cool,” or “take it easy” In Thailand where the people and their customs, are gentle, and a smile is always the way to greet someone, hands  in special position, like a prayer, with a slight low bow.  It seemed like a fitting way to start my greeting to you today.

We have the sunshine today, however, temperatures are in the zero range.  So imagining the sunshine  in Thailand where the weather is “warmer”.. feels good.

I am reading a nook by David Casarett,M.D.  = Murder at the house of Rooster Happiness = the main character is Ladarat Patalung, a nurse who is slowly adding detective to her “talents”   It is a debut book,  one gets to enjoy the sights and sounds of Thailand.  How it ended up in my reading, I don’t remember.  I actually didn’t think I would even be able to still my mind with all that is going on these days, but… wonder..of wonders, it is written in a way that I am drawn to know more about a country I know little about, and learning about customs, and traditions that are interesting.  What a way to travel and enjoy a mystery at the same time.

Seeing life from the perspective of a Thai person, regarding time spent in the USA ..let’s just say.. it made me smile, a lot!!!!

Isn’t that what life is all about, finding moments and ways to bring heart-felt smiles into our daily lives.  When we smile, we pass along our happiness.

The Elephant found in Thailand, is the one also found in India….   an elephant is an elephant to me,  this is a picture I have in my inventory of an elephant, forgive me if there is a distinct difference.

I am feeling an elephant size load of happy today, and want to share it with you.  Being happy is important.. even if it is a struggle to smile, curve those lips and take a nice deep breath.. say to yourself happy happy happy, sabai, sabai… and you will be blessed with a big inner smile.

Till next visit.   sabai, sabai…

Don’t Hold Anything Back

Give it Your All  (PL Calendar day 16)

Always approach things with full enthusiasm and energy.  Then things will develop in a new direction.


When I started my magic pony, I was not wanting, nor had I any thought of a pony  I was working my water-colour paints in a way I would usually work my acrylics.  The more I seemed to try to go in one direction, the more the paints pulled me in another.  Finally I just stopped,  stood back and stared at the page.  That is when I took the picture I used yesterday.  I could see this face looking at me, and it said “My Little Pony” What????  I remember seeing these pink ponies in the toy section of various shops.  Of no interest to me. Nope, not into pink ponies.

OK, I decided to ignore it.. and leave it overnight.  Hello.. next morning the face I saw was still there. Since I have learned over the years, that if I see something and it doesn’t go away, if I tried to obstruct or force another direction.. the results would be a disaster .. meaning I wouldn’t like it, and it would be a “garbage” page.

We learn from our mistakes.  If I was to give it my all, then I needed to follow my instinct, so what if it didn’t pan out, it wasn’t going to anyway.  So.. I played with it till the words/feeling was to “stop”  Now I’ve put it aside, and we will see if I am called back to it or not.  Meanwhile I have my “magic” or “fantasy” pony.

Life is.  The little face makes me smile.  Go figure.

Friday the 16th.  Live it to the fullest.  Make it count.

There will always be a way

As long as you re serious, there is no reason for you to give up.  Move forward one step at a time and things will always turn out for the best.


This sculpture gave me such a sense of “fun and freedom” when I saw it.  I have had it in my picture library for some time, and do not recall where I got it. If anyone is aware of the artist, please let me know.
