Good morning everyone… the season is on us. Songs on the radio, a special channel devoted to the music of the season. On the telly we have the Hallmark channel already showing their “feel good” movies. What about us, you and me, the marketing departments, the promotions, adverts, they are all prepared. In the States I guess it will happen real quick like once their Thanksgiving is over. No I don’t usually speak this way, (real quick like) but I liked the sound. The keys flowed with a rhythm.
It is early, but the snow machines are out, I can hear them rolling down the sidewalk. In some way, form or another, we have started to think of how we will portion ourselves up to be with friends, family and loved ones. On a personal level, we are not companies that can delegate and assign different tasks to various departments to reach a goal, we have to do it for ourselves.
In a conversation recently it was suggest that I be the adult and this meant in the situation we were discussing, that I should be more responsible myself. and take action accordingly. Had me wondering just what it means to be an adult. We (as parents) were the ones rushing around getting gifts, hiding them all to make “others” (we hoped) happy an surprised on Xmas day. But……………………. what about us, the individual, what is it about being an adult that sets us apart, from the ones who have dreams and wishes. Why are we responsible for making others happy.
In PL we believe that each and everyone of us, is responsible for US. If I cannot make myself happy, how can I expect someone else to make me happy. Be true to one’s SELF. We live a moment and we move on. Also we want others to be happy and we do our best to open our hearts to them. That is why we pray for the guidance to enable us to be a “good person” and to do our best for others and society. Adult or otherwise*, these are the teachings of PL.
PL Principle 1 (of of 21) I will live paying careful attention, putting Makoto (sincerity) into all I say and do.
Good Thursday morning all. Three of the pictures were taken by a friend in Michigan, he is a very kind and talented individual, he knows of my “passion” for old buildings and doors”. The bright Xmas door is my latest find from the Dollar Tree (stores located here and in the States)
We had a great meeting yesterday at the Doll Club, even managed to raise some money for the House of Lazarus in Mountain. (food bank) Remember to give when you can.
Always live life with a smile, life is no longer a trial when we believe.
Being considerate of others is just as important as what works for you. Always be mindful of the situations of others not just your own. To have a good relationship with those around you always think of what is important to them too.
The early morning light, was not going to get any brighter, yet I found the sight of the single tree still standing with its crisp mantle of dusty orange leaves, appealing.
I found today to be beautiful, it was moody, it was stirring, most of all it was full of expressions waiting to be discovered.
Appreciate the Makoto (sincerity) of the people who came before you. Everything we have today was built upon the hard work of our ancestors and the people who came before us. Always remember to be thankful and humble and continue to build on their past successes.

The 11th. Ancestors day ceremony, is one of my favourites, today’s service was powerful
Voices in unison we prayed, heads bent in reverence and respect for our loved ones, and those who came forward and went into battle to keep us all free from those who would do us harm.
Where-ever you are in the world, please continue to pray for world peace.
PL Precept #7 Everything exists in relativity
Please note that tomorrow, I am taking my “unreliable” “malfunctioning” PC back to the store for a check up. I will be back asap.
Its dark outside, and in my world it is late 11:19pm. Because it gets dark so much earlier now, the time snuck up on me. I don’t remember actually being up this late, in a long time. I’ve been busy working and doing some of this and that, and…oh my gosh… I saw the time. The dogs gave up on me some time ago, both are sawing logs, or off chasing rabbits in their dreams.
Everything that happens to you is material for growth. Approach everything with firm belief that, “it will turn out for the best” Anything can be used as material for progress and development.

I wonder if at midnight I will be like Cinderella… and loose my glass slipper. Life is interesting, I can remember when I was just leaving to go out at 9 or 10 pm. LOL you guessed, it was a LONG time ago. Maybe staying up this late will mean I will be taking a later train into dreamland.. ohhhh what surprise awaits me.. fun! (likely to meet up with a different “crowd”) I get very good storylines during the night’s adventures. =^_^=
The new day will begin soon enough. I wish you all a great start to the week-end. Use your creativity and positive state of mind to have the sunniest day ever… Change always allows for a fresh start.
Sometimes I save a picture from somewhere, usually I will note were I found it, this time I did not. Finding it in my folder, I thought it we a good visual for today.
Friendships are so varied, if we look at our list of friends, each is so different, with his/her own personality, and characteristics, yet when we are with them, there is that glow of friendship that happens, making whatever event or activity you are doing together.. a celebration of that friendship.
Some we see often, and some, seldom. Yet we know them and find comfort in that friendship. When you connect with another human being, keep it honest and sincere. The friendship circle will widen.
Life without friends can be very empty.
On the 1st of the month, in Perfect Liberty we celebrate and pray for World Peace.
World Peace starts from Peace at Home. Your life is part of the bigger world beyond you. Start with your surroundings and spread peace to the world around you.
Oh yes, it can start out very bleak …. however I know it will change, with or without Bell Canada and their inability to fix an errand e-mail glitch. Allow me one teensy weenie vent..”the problem has been occurring for months, every couple of days? aahhhhhh… that felt better.
Now the colour is coming back =^_^= I actually got a canvas the other day to explode some colour on. My friend Mollie beat me to it, she posted a wonderful painting in the brilliant colours that have been displayed in her area. You’ve inspired me Mollie.
Myself I have been busy working on Xmas greetings, and little this and thats. Today finally I can go for my flu shot. They have been delayed, altho’ some areas, have had them, many are still waiting.
Enjoy the process and savour it. The feeling you have when you’ve seen something through to the end is awesome, but the true joy lies in the actual execution of the plan.
