Thank you – again and again. – It feels great if someone tells you, “Thank you” even many times by repeating this, become a person who comes up with the word “Thank you” naturally.

Life is a buffet of moments. WE decide how much, how little effort, we put into being happy.
Make happiness with willingness. People who like to make an effort can enjoy anything. Those who spare no effort for anything and anyone know the joy of making art. Make an effort with willingness.Perfect Liberty 2023.6 translation to English done in Japan.
Experience the joy of being kind to others. The joy of expressing kindness to others is much greater than when someone does something kind for you. Always strive to be a person who can be kind to others.Perfect Liberty 2012.5

PL Precept # 15 All is a mirror
Doors that have an arch… Arches have been used in construction for ages.. Arches are not only beautiful but have purpose they are important in construction – today it is how they frame a door /entrance. I find them welcoming. symbolic of angel’s wing.? They embody strength and support. Did you know the arch is basically a male motif? In Mythology, it represents the door between time and space through which one passes to enter another world. The “arch” signifies the opening to new perspectives.
What do you think, if the arch is male .. is the door the female…. when you pair them…? How else does one come into this world.
Be Big Hearted In fact what you are concerned about might be something you don’t need to be concerned about. Interact with people without worrying too much.Perfect Liberty 2023. 2
Heavy snow made it hard to see much, I basically decided it would be best to not attempt too much driving. When I left snow was falling lightly, but by the time I was back where the crows were, it was falling heavily.. temperatures were such that ice formed on the windshield blades.. and crusted on the windows making it hard to see.. the wipers left big crushed ice arcs just where I needed to see the road ahead. I had my Nikon today, didn’t do me much good tho’ you can see the snow was falling so heavily it was like trying to get their picture through a shower curtain of wet sticky snow.
The crows on my second visit waiting patiently for me to get out of their way.. they saw where the food landed, circled the area, but waited.
I did get pictures of the grosbeaks but… they were too blurred or distorted… I erased them. There was a whole host of the smaller birds (finch) that look like smaller evening grosbeaks today, they were all over the area grabbing up what they could. In fact, at both P23 and P22 it was the smaller birds that took over the diners.. they simply dived down and began to clean up. The doves and the squirrels stayed out of their way. It was interesting. The pesky little squirrels stayed clear of where the ground feeders were.
A couple of the little red squirrels are no longer really afraid of me, in fact, they like to tease me… waiting till I’m almost at them.. then lifting their little chins and giving me a little chirp before moving away only to wait for me to move on.. their little eyes watching me.. I swear sometimes I think they giggle.
The roads are messy, if you are tempted to go out… be careful.

Just because you can … doesn’t mean you need to!
There is something so magical about watching the sun make its appearance . A brand new day. New beginning, a fresh perspective, how wonderful the moment is when you see it between the trees teasing and tempting. There is no way I can ignore the majesty of it all.
There isn’t another car in sight, I slow down, looking for that perfect moment to stop the car… of course when I get out of the car, my view is different, and I have to walk around the car and walk up or back down the road to see if I can catch the glowing ball of fire before it drifts out of my sight.
The birds are quiet today, ok, well not all of them, the nuthatch are not carrying on, but the Jays are being absolutely silly. I’ve spoiled them, usually as soon as I get out of the car, I throw out handfuls of peanuts in a shell. LOL … now they expect it.. The evening grosbeaks are being patient, I can hear one or two of them begin their song. But… I’m still focused on getting a picture… which I did.. and only then did I dutifully go tend my charges.
Get things started with Grit. If you work on things in daily life with the attitude of “let’s do it!” you will feel a power to accomplish things. People around you will rely on you.Perfect lIberty 2023.29
I have been tired a lot of late. So much so, it has been a bit of a worry. YET the Vitamines D and B the magnesium and and and.. that were recommended sit on my counter. Not being opened or used. What is it with me (part of me) anyway! What I have been doing, is still cleaning up (per Chinese New Year tradition) and yesterday…. finally…. I took out the “brasso” (cleaner) and cleaned my prayer bowls.
Little steps right….
Oyashikiri -love, gratitude and appreciation everyone.. there is no me without you.
