Be easy going and live your life cheerfully and flexibly – Strong emotions can be the cause of various troubles. Always strive to have a cheerful and calm state of mind.

say what!

when two minds collide!

Try putting yourself in the other person’s shoes. Put aside your own convenience for the moment and think about what would make the other person happy or what would best serve their needs.

14th

Offer your service instead of expecting from others. Take the initiative to do what you can to help others. Understand their needs and act swiftly.

At first when I saw this picture, I thought “nothing like being caught between a rock and a hard place” The second thought that came to mind was ” a rose between two thorns” Still I’m not decided.. but I am attracted to this shot. What do you see, what comes to your mind?

There is always a balance .. hard/soft, fast/slow, flowing/solid…

Have a great day everyone!

wood

There is something about the evolution of a tree, and what we have learned about how it grows, the different types of wood, hardness, texture, colour. I am captivated when I walk into a workshop where wood is being worked on/with. I love the many shapes, forms and characteristics of the different species.

I never tire of discovering an old wooden building/structure

In Wakefield the other day, the wood workers shop was not open when we went, but I got to explore his outdoor work space. Wood everywhere, it was a mini paradise.

I know that pictures are not the same as being there, but I’m sure for those of you who love this kind of “setting” as much I do… you can almost smell the wooden wonder of the place. In the back of this property is a babbling brook. YES I not only got a visual “high” I had the ambience of the running water and clear blue skies. YuppeeDoooo!!!!

We all have different ways of feeling and thinking. Let’s always accept others differences and respect one another. Remember that “different strokes for different folks” is the key to having harmonious relationships with the people around us.

evergreen

Good relationships begin by greeting each other. Acts of respect and courtesy are reflections of how much we value others. Make it a point to be the first to greet your family, people t work and around the neighborhood.

Work well with everyone regardless of their age or position. the opinions of those who are younger may lead to new solutions, and we can always learn from the accumulated experiences of our elders.

cold angry wind

needle felting project started

Yup, the cooler weather has arrived. This morning I was greeted with an angry burst of wind, it was not a gentle good morning, but an aggressive, swirling slap as I opened the door to let the dogs out. There was not doubt that it was wanting to be noticed and heard as it tore across the back yard and through the evergreens out back of the neighbours.

I smiled with a deep satisfaction that yesterday I had found a nice pair of high boots with warm lining for the days ahead. Good morning I called out smiling. “I’m ready for you!” I’ve been slowly brining out my warm vests, and jackets, they’ve been cleaned and ready for the coming months. When we are prepared and ready for expected weather changes, it is so much more fun.

Like the little squirrels and chipmunks that live in the area, I have been busy stocking my larder too. There is a nice feeling of “self satisfaction” knowing that should I want to.. I can just enjoy the comforts of my home, certainly now at my age, and stage in life (semi retired) I can function at a different pace. As you can see I’ve been pulled out my felting “stuff” and have started on a little “sampler” to get my “groove” back.

Always think that “everything will work out” When you allow yourself to be pessimistic your thoughts and actions become sluggish. Approach everything optimistically without hesitating.

The joy of expression is in the process. Of course results are important but let’s not lose sight of the true joy that can be found in the actual process. Face every task with wholehearted enthusiasm.

No one can take away the joy you get from putting your whole heart into something. The joy you feel when you’ve put your all into something is your and yours alone. Nobody can take that away from you.

mer blu

I’ve never had birds fly so close to me, almost land on me, even light on my camera. I was totally enchanted with my walk… it (boardwalk) was one way, only once or twice did I encounter other visitors. The experience was all mine.

Adapt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.

blushing

the tender touch of frost kisses on the leaves

Strive to overcome obstacles by changing your mind-frame. Things don’t always go as planned. When that happens, try changing how you look at the situation or how you are doing things. the outcome is in your hands.

Ancestors Day

Today, the 11th of the month, in Prefect Liberty we celebrate our Ancestors. Through the ceremony, we express our gratitude for the love and virtues of our ancestors and ask for their protection and guidance so we can continue to live the PL WAY. Service will begin at 10 a.m.

We are aware that many of you will be sheltering in place, we ask that you take a few moments at home to share in morning prayer with us.

All over the world, people are having to physically distance themselves from loved ones. In Canada this week-end it is our long week-end, a time when many of us would be gathering and sharing our table with our loved ones who do not live in our immediate “space”. May your creativity and love allow you to find ways to communicate virtually. Be grateful for the bounty we do have, and for the love and community we live in and belong to.

Be thankful to your parents and to your ancestors. You are here today because the “torch of life” has been continuously passed down. Always remember to be thankful.
