Yesterday is but a memory – Today is what it is – and Tomorrow, I may or may not be here to share your day – so if you are passing through – I ask of you – share my history, learn from what has been, for we only live a moment once, and then its gone…

Perception is important. Take immediate action once you suddenly perceive. You might discover something important in what you perceive

Today being Thursday, you can find more doors on Dan’s No Facilities site https://nofacilities.com/2023/03/09/waltham-and-newton/ a weekly challenge for people who love doors and architecture.


A hideaway, a secret rendez-vous.. somewhere some place, an idyllic get away, I couldn’t resist when I saw this bit of landscape, I wanted to go up and be part of the scenery.. sit under a tree, enjoy the breeze coming off the water’s edge. But … it was not my place… someone else lived there. I was a passerby … who fell in love with that moment in time.

Of course this would have made a wonderful post for my Thursday Door challenge that I participate in, but today is not Thursday, it is Sunday, and this is when the picture fell out of my file … I couldn’t pass it by. I wanted to share the moment with you. Life gets so busy at times, that what happens is we react and respond to what is before us. In my studies last night, I listened to a lecture given at one of the universities on coping and living through the many challenges and opportunities we are given in life. Believe me, they can be numerous at times.

The picture above was one taken a couple of years ago when I was exploring a part of the virtual world I had not been in before. It was another artist’s creation, another person’s vision, i was just lucky .. I saw it and captured it … Now I wish I had taken the time to see who the architect was that had the vision to produce such a welcoming environment.

If you have an adventure in your nature, there is a new build in SL called the Golden Place, (A tropical photogenic island, it has many hideaways where you an enjoy some awesome views if you love taking photos, or just being on a beach listening to music, you might enjoy transporting your avatar to the island to explore, http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Golden%20Place/99/156/22

I had a personal experience recently that showed me that I can be vulnerable and my feelings and “comfort zone” can be turned topsy turvy… life isn’t always the same old, same old “stuff”. I can’t just call up a travel agent and board a plane for Cuba or some other far away destination. I am at the moment living in a world that is smack in the middle of a snow season. Sometimes come March, spring is in the air and the world is breaking free of the winter “blues” not so this year.

As a photographer, I love the virtual world for the many opportunities I have to see and visit the creative builds of artists/builders/designers/from all over the world, The Golden Place was put together by I believe a visionary from Germany. As a music lover I can hear and experience talented performers from all over the world. I noticed the other day that there was a whole afternoon of Brazilian music being presented on another Island (Isle Du Noir).. a Brazilian guitar player from Sau Paulo … after Wes, there were two other entertainers, I believe singers (also from Brazil) who delighted audiences with their music. I was already covering the new travel location, I missed it. Still haven’t figured out how to be in two places at once.!!

I share this with you because I know I’m not alone at looking out into the snow filled world and wanting a change. We are not in a position to pick up and go anywhere at the moment, it is tax time, we are facing several more weeks of “winter” weather… exploring new possibilities within easy reach… could be an option

Meanwhile today’s calendar reads…

Always be humble. If you work on things with the attitude of asking a favour, people around you will advise you what they have noticed. there is something in fact you are not aware of that you do.

A recent conversation with another writer/photographer was about -being alone- the comment that stuck out because I hear it so often, “I love what I do (photography) especially when I can be on my own in nature, wandering and searching out ‘possibilities”…. If you were asked your preference, do you like your alone time. is being on your own where your creativity shines through?

The ambient sounds, the birds calling, the wind, the sound of the waves … you had to be there!


Have you ever found yourself in conversation with a squirrel. How they will look right back at you in pure defiance. There are a couple of the little red ones that are just a little bigger than a minute.. they are loud, noisy, have a lot to say … and are determined that if you want them to go away, they are going to show you, they are going to stay. I recognize that behaviour…. Have been known to display “some” of that annoying stubbornness myself.

Compromise makes things more complicated. if you go against your intuition and compromise because circumstances or conditions, things tend to get more complicated than they need to be. Always focus on the priorities and act accordingly.

Express straight away once you’ve found it…” great!”.. Proactively express about others’ goodness. It feels great to be told so, even about things you already know.

To the Moon and back!

stop the car!

Layers – “stop the car” I’d shout.. “stop the car !! look over there, sheep!!” that was back when I was doing a lot of felting. Now roving and materials for felting are available almost everywhere there is a hobby or craft section in stores. But when I was knee deep in working with organic products, to sculpt my designs with felt, I had to find the sheep that would then lead me to the shepherds who tended them to find a source for fleece/roving.

Now.. I stop the car for photographic images that flash before me as I make my way into conservation landscapes… where every day there is a different wonder for me to discover. The little voice in my head will persist… “stop the car” if I procrastinate… sometime I want to go just a little further, because I don’t like the way a power line crosses in my view, or a tree is leaning in on the shot I think I want.

You know what happens.. When I hesitate (which I can do) I miss the shot!!!! Why, every moment counts when the sun is coming up…every few feet I keep moving forward, I am loosing that moment and the “excitement” that caught my attention, has faded or lazily changed before my eyes. The cloud has changed its shape,… or the red has faded to a pink and the pattern of the backdrop is blocked by a fallen tree… you get the drift..

Perception is important. Take immediate action once you suddenly perceive. You might discover something important in what you perceive.

The day I took this picture, there was a Nuthatch or it could have been more than one, all I know the air was filled with their song, it was pure magic. I was out of the car, I was standing by a stand of trees when the song began… it was a “stop the car” moment tho’… I stood stalk still, listened for where it was coming from, and headed to where I could get a picture. Of course without my Nikon, I got the landscape, but that’s OK, this was taken with the Pixel 7…I am just learning the phone..The one layer you can see the ice covering the outstretched limbs. then the top layer with the sun breathing fire unto the branches.. was for me a super WOW moment.

Hope your day is filled with “stop the car” moments.

There is nothing we can’t do! One way or another, we do it!


Let a new year begin

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.

Your smile can create an instant connection

Don’t think “I Can’t” from the start . Begin by taking the first step, then you’ll be able to see what comes next and a path will open.

Happy place

I’m tucked away in my hidden retreat… listening to the rain falling, the steady rhythm of the drops as they cut through the deep piles of snow in the yard… when I opened the door to let the dogs out, the rain was falling in sheets.. it was a sight to see against the piles off winter snow that since yesterday have lost about half of their height because it has been mild.. and of course the rain is not being kind to the snow that fell over the past couple of weeks.

This location (above) is not known to many, those of us who frequent this little hide-a-way… tend to keep it a secret. Hmmm wonder why! True with all the snow we had, it won’t look like this now, if we trekked in to visit the ambience would still be magical, but very different.

Like… here we are saying goodbye to another year, by this time tomorrow it will be 2023. Let’s move forward with a positive attitude. We have so much to discover and enjoy before we have to “slow down”.

Have a prayerful mid to love yourself and others. Open up your heart fully when praying to God. It will help you sort out your feelings.

PL Precept #10 Love yourself and others.


just out of bed …… the sky was so red I couldn’t let it happen and not take action captured on my cell ….. it was so dark so intense……. yet when transferred to my hard drive, the red was already fading into the morning clouds …. but… that is what life is…. a lifetime can disappear in the blink of an eye. …. change is an opportunity for growth… .hmmm well said!

It is not fun to be stuck in One place. Instead of being captured by what’s in front of you, strive to broaden your horizons.

In going through a file, I found this stashed in a folder all by its lonesome. You know my fascination with wild turkeys these days.. this lone bird caught my eye. Wondering what he/she is doing? When I saw today’s lesson (PL Calendar) I thought it perfect for my visual today. Anyone out there recognize this bird?

When you get stuck take a step back….. When you are able to see things objectively, your viewpoint will change and you will receive new wisdom.

Be creative in your efforts.

Hello Fall

Yesterday as I drove down the road to the entrance to Mer Bleue I slowed to look over the valley beyond the trees that border the road and saw … fall colours… the whole line of trees along the far side of the valley were crimson and golds… Yikes… it is still September … I didn’t have the Nikon with me and the cell would have limited range for me to capture that colour. BUT it was there.!!! Good thing fall is my favourite season.. I L O V E IT….

Be cheerful and friendly with those around you. Other people can sense how you are feeling … So, be cheerful.
