rust you say!

Nay it is art…

under the majesty of the sky

the temperament of the clouds

the treasure lay,

surrounded by a crowd of flowers

lush and green waving in the breeze

cheerfully saying hello to passersby

oh… for a closer look

checking mirrors back and front,

I pulled over to seek my treasure out

not gems that gleam in the sun

but a sturdy piece of artwork

that has been lovingly blessed each day

by natures wonderful expressions

(most call it weather)

set in concrete for all to see,

this piece of art has grown lovelier with each passing season

I can’t say for sure, but I would guess

that not many are struck by its beauty

or come to admire, yet pass it each day

such is life, in French there is a saying

“to each his/her own”

You see rust, you say! Lad show me the way!


PL calendar day 3

Instead of worrying, do something about it..

It doesn’t help to over think situations such as, “What if this happens?” or “Things might end up that way.”  Instead be proactive and change how you see and do things in each situation.

Everything we have today, was built on the hard work of our ancestors..

Always remember to be humble and thankful.  Every moment you live, every experience you have, becomes part of who you are.  Be yourself, no one can do it better than you.

Stay awhile, simply stand, sit, wait, till the sounds around you, are the only thoughts you hear.  Feel the breeze, take in the smells, you will feel you body start to relax.

hwy to alfred8Walk slowly, for now, in this moment,  you have no other place to be. SAy these words quietly to yourself, right now.  Then close your eyes, take a deep breath, feeling your lungs expand    smile    then slowly open your eyes.   Ahhhh how easy was that.

Go in peace my friend.  You are loved.

Cranberry delight

 

IMG_1206I felt like I was walking in my own wonderland.  Given permission to wander and enjoy, I took full advantage and drove down towards the fields of now harvested cranberries.

 

The light drizzle and clouds over head, did nothing to dampen the thrill of the experience.

There was a calm, the ducks, and birds were nesting and peaceful, the waters drifted lazily along, enjoying the pull of the breezes.

I had wanted to visit the Cranberry fields for a very long time.  The other day, I slowed down, and took the winding country lane down to the farm.   Upper Canada Cranberries, Ottawa’s only cranberry grower.  Greely, Ontario.  613-798-6232, or the other number shown, 613-720-6232.

It is of course off season, the harvesting had been down, workers were gone, it was just me and whatever wild life  called the farm home.

IMG_1269

I was happy, my spirits were soaring with the high of being alive and able to be there at that moment in time. For me, it was a blessings, pure  intoxicating love for all that IS.

The owner was busy when I was driving out,  I hope he knows how content I was.  He lives and works in this environment all year.  WOW…  He has a small store front, for days he is open.  You can get fresh cranberries, and pure cranberry juice, no sugar.  That my dears is a find.  If you are in the area, please look the place up.

IMG_1302This was a very special blessing, I followed through on my desire to visit the farm, there was no distraction.  My reward was the intense feelings of being ONE with the environment I was in.

I wish this for each and every one of you. Have a joy filled day… now and always.

quiet please

 

flowers PA5We are lucky to have a “Free Library” on our street.  There are a couple in the neighbourhood.  I’ve had a peak once or twice, but haven’t had the time to take advantage of the possibilities.

I have been looking for a book to read, but even though we have a ton of books in the house, it is interesting, that I found the interesting enough when I bought them, way back when, but today, they hold no interest. None.  I pick one up, read the summary and put it back down.  I found one that is a mystery, the detectives are sheep???? what???? when I got that, or where I got it, I have no idea.

Today is anther day, full of promise.  Let’s see what is in “store” for me today.  Life is full of surprises.  Another present?  Another discovery?

Till Next time

PL day 25 (calendar)

There is no reason to hold back

If you skimp on the paint, then your painting will not turn out well.  Live a fulfilled life every day by utilizing things, money, your knowledge or energy to their fullest

Appreciate our differences

PL Calendar #23   Appreciate Our Differences

Appreciate the colourful personalities of the people around you and enjoy their uniqueness to the fullest


Life’s journey is never a super highway, it is full of unexpected stops, and detours along the way.  Remember it is not the destination, but the journey itself that is rewarding.  When we are faced with the unexpected, stop and appreciate the diversion, it is  happening for a reason.  The details might not be clear to you at the time, but if we believe, and have faith, God/Universe will see us through. Love is unconditional.  Love sometimes is having to be different.  Let Go… Let God.
