Thursday doors

Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens,   Kahlil Gibran

“A man should never be ashamed to own he has been in the wrong, which is but saying, in other wisdom that he is wiser today, than he was yesterday”.  Alexander Pope

This picture was taken on a day trip exploring the back roads in the Gatineau Hills,  We never know what we will find when we turn a corner, or turn left instead of right.

Yesterday I was driving along  with clear blue skies when I came to a red light.  Instead of going left I went right and drove right into dark gray clouds, driving winds, and hail. In an instant the world went from, what a beautiful day, to Whoa!!! hello adventure.  Such is life.  For 15, 20 minutes or so, we drove in a gray snow blind. Barely able to see the road ahead. Then as quickly as it came, the storm left us.

Life is full of surprises, and how we accept and deal with them, is our choice.  Have a great day everyone.  Visit Norm’s blog for a link to more doors. Norm 2.0

Day 16 of the PL calendar for 2019

Even thought you may have put your best effort into doing something, you still may have made some mistakes.  That is why it is important to always work with a prayerful mind.

Be happy, live to spread happiness and joy wherever you go – people will think you mad, but oh how divine it is to share a smile with another being.  A dog wags his tail enthusiastically when you say hello, the cat, rushes to snuggle and purr in your arms. ah there is an unspoken bliss when we are harmonizing.  Try it.  You may like it.

PL Principle 21    will live in true harmony with the world around me.

Bom dia…

flashback 2006

back yard a2006The last few days, maybe even weeks, I have found myself thinking of a different time and what was.  How a young garden, took shape, and grew till it no longer resembled what was.

Life mirrors nature, the link between the two has been established since way before I was born.  I am only now pulling the fragments of the past into what I have been living and what is to come.  I can feel the stirring of new beginnings, I know that I am already well into discovery mode.

Today, day 15 of the PL Calendar – Live with firm determination, thinking that “this will turn out for the best”

Everything in this world progresses an develops.  Always be positive, knowing that everything will turn out for the best.

Yesterday I drove to Montreal, the day was bright, balmy and welcoming.  Each mile was a new beginning.  Even though I have travelled this route many times, it was like a first visit.  The landscape along the way, simply would not be still.  The shades of late autumn strutted their charms against the blankets of pristine snow.  I felt their happy waves, and delighted in the variety of picture postcards they flashed my eager eyes as I drove by. Mother Nature, stayed with me all the way, the best tour guide ever.

2006aLife is a blessing, I am filled with appreciation and gratitude.  Thank you all for sharing my world,  Life is love, and love is YOU and the world we are in.

Wednesday

 

It was a beautiful day for reflection yesterday.


Day 26 of the PL Calendar

Maintain a positive attitude and wisdom will come to you.

Worrying will prevent you from having good ideas.  Stay positive and you will find a solution.

Happy 25th (terca-feira)to all

Andre 12.25aLife is lived in segments.  Remember when the phone was thought to be the greatest of inventions.  A voice from across the miles, would bring cheer, maybe only once a year. At Xmas, everyone would gather around the phone, and wait eagerly to speak to the relative, or friend who lived far away.  It brought everyone close.

What time was spent with someone else was precious, not taken for granted, it was appreciated and remembered well into the years to come.

Spend today enjoying the sunshine, create your own.  If you skimp on a painting, then your painting will not turn out well.

PL calendar day 25, 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

mixed media art  Q

possibilities

Is there an inconsistency here?  Is something out-of-place?  Are the visuals harmonizing?

This is a visual post.  For sure, when I selected today’s visual, I FOUND  for me the collection lacked congruency,  Can you see it?  Let us have some fun.


Day 20 PL Calendar –  You are YOU others are Others.

You have your own way of doing things, and others have their way of doing thing.  Don’t worry about what other people will say.  Simply take care of the task at hand.


PL Precept 4  Being annoyed limits your expression

We are all blessed with an ability to see life in our own way, to take positives and use them to cope with the possible challenges/opportunities that come our way.  Make today special, share a smile.  It is yours to give.

Maravilhos quinta-feira a todos!  Have a wonderful day!

1st day 12.14.18_007When a stranger lands in your space  –  There is nowhere to escape

The eyes reflect the night, you look for life inside, but find there is no sight

Others wander the night, some with seeing eyes, but not the stranger in your space

what brought her here, will tomorrow a tear be shed, or will we both stare into the night

waiting for the starship to return for her.  Of my world she cannot be, for in my world, there is room for only me  I have eyes that see and a heart that breaks, vacant eyes belong in another time and space.
1st day 12.14.18_006Be calm and kind hesitating to share true feelings, can hurt not only ourselves but others.  PL calendar .. day 17          Oyashikiri
