Cherish this moment, this time, this day. People keep growing as time goes on. Cherish your self expression.

The dragon roars

In every garden there lives a dragon. They come in many sizes shapes and colours, mine is rare and elusive. He has the uncanny ability to show up in the darndest places. always he is watching, he never really lets me out of his sight. He is so good at it that I often forget that he is there. He though, does not forget, dragons are forever, and nothing is going to happen on his watch.

Today with all the snow, I had to exert myself probably more than I should have… I was feeling faint, having just cleared an area again for the third time (that is how much snow fell overnight and during the day) that I had to lean on the shovel, my breathing was quick and almost harsh.. I knew I was over extending, but I wanted it done. Besides I told myself… neighbours are all at work, no one is going to hear my laboured breathing…

Then I heard the hissing sound… it was soft but there could be no doubt that it was a warning, not a gentle purr, but a hissing that stopped me still. I looked over the mound of snow towards the tree where the dragon has a den… and there covered in snow he stood glaring. Whether he’d come out of the den or had just returned from one of his celestial journeys… I didn’t know.. but I knew the silent command, Stop.. enough!

Of course he was right, I was light headed now.. I came back in, looked around at the mess in the kitchen and decided, it would have to wait. I went to lie down… it took a bit of time, but the breathing calmed and I fell into a light sleep. (On waking I did take my blood sugar level to make sure my number(s) were not too high or low.)

I am blessed to have a dragon in my life. the dragon symbolizes power, change, and spiritualty, as well as good luck, fortune and prosperity. In many cultures the dragon is a protector. For sure mine is. He guides me and helps me tap into my power. A dragon has potent and auspicious powers.

Am I being fanciful .. still dreaming… who knows… all I know is that having a dragon in my life is super fantastic. Gives a whole new meaning to unconditional love.

wandering

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.

Happy New Year. Rabbit

Good Sunday morning. This little quote hangs on the back door, I see it every time I use the back door. Let me rephrase … I pass by it everytime I use the back door. this morning when I let the dogs out, the Chinese New Year red celebration good luck symbol caught my attention, and I lifted it to straighten it and saw the words that I had hung there months ago. Why had I covered it up… I have been walking past it and not seeing it. What a good message to start my year with.

Discover something new today. have a willingness and an interest ... start your day with excitement.

Resolve – A firm determination to do something… decide firmly on a course of action.

The most famous Rabbit in chinese culture is probably the “jade rabbit” who resides in t he Moon Palace. “Legend has it that three fairy sages transformed the selves into starving old beggars, they came across a fox, a monkey and a rabbit. The beggars asked for food, the Fox and Monkey both had food and shared it. The Rabbit had nothing to share with them… wanting them to be well and not to starve to death, he jumped into a fire determined to save them. The sages were so moved by the Rabbits sacrifice that with their powers they revived the rabbit and granted it eternal life. sending it to live in the Moon palace with Chang Er the Moon fairy.

Some say on a full moon if you look closely you will see the beautiful Chang Er fairy and the cheerful Jade Rabbit singing together in the Moon Palace. The Chinese it is said are fascinated by the moon and celebrate Moon Festival on the 15th day of the eight lunar month – families watch the full moon together. It is also the romantic festival for lovers. Looking at the moon links them together.

Happiness is sharing life with you… Always and forever.

Now

Came across this huge poster the other day.. I tried to get a good picture to share, that is why I have put two copies of it up in case you can see one better than the other. I first saw such a poster when I worked at CTV (Canadian television media) back in the early years when it was a budding new industry. The new Pr man had arrived and was setting up his office. He had come from Hamilton and there against his wall was such a poster with interesting doors of Hamilton (Ontario/Canada) Do these posters still exist? Does anyone have an actual collection of the posteres? We are an avid door chaser group, besides sharing the doors here on Thursdays… do we have our own collection of door posters? What do you do with all the doors you’ve collected over the years?

For more doors, please visit Dan site.. https://nofacilities.com/2023/01/19/officers-quarters/

The turning point is now. Life is a sequence of moments called now. You have the key to turn yourself around.

– Just listen….

17th.

Snow, blowing snow, high winds, visibility is not good, roads are not all cleared, the cold temperatures means that under the fresh snow is the possibility of black ice, there are hidden dangers out there.

The path to achievement is “to start with what you can do” try to find out what you an do towards challenges in your own situation. This will pave the way for achievement.

Today is a brand new day! What adventures will we have today!

Jan.15

It was a brilliant day. Eartha and I finally got away for our day trip to Ogdensburg, NY. We didn’t gear away till mid morning, and we actually got home early evening. Ogdensburg is about an hour’s drive from here, the border crossing was unusually quiet. We had only a couple of cars ahead of us when we crossed over into the States, and we were the only car returning to Canada when we headed back. Unusual, but appreciated, cuz we were tired.

We were only hours away from home, yet the weather, was so much milder. People were in (believe this) shorts and cut offs. Mind you they were wearing fall sweaters, some had on hoodie type sweat shirts or jackets… but the snowsuits and winter apparel seen worn when we left home. Mind you, we have just had a snow dump, as you can see from the above picture that was taken in the morning when I went out to P23 and P22 to feed the birds/crows.

While in Ogdensburg we were told about a new Asian Buffet, all you can eat, with Free Ice Cream! Guess where we had lunch. (1000 Linden St. open 7 days a week) It was different from the Asian buffets I am used to here .. I did ask, the Cook was/is Chinese. They have lunch specials for take out which is something we don’t see up here at our Asian buffets. You can also do Carry Out buffet in the States, I don’t find that here too often. And KNOCK YOUR SOCKS off prices. Here a noon day buffet at our favourite buffet is over $20 ea. for lunch .There we paid just under $20 for TWO.

Happy Sunday morning everyone.. because of the storm I missed the feeders at P22 and P23 Friday, yesterday the feeders were empty and full of snow… Guess where I am headed as soon as this post is put to bed.=^_^=

Express your feelings straight away. It will be good if you could express your feelings as they are to people around you, when you are happy or when you are troubled. also it will be a good chance for you to get to know others.

Snow1.13.

Others are others, I am I. If you force your values about anything on others, it can be self righteous. don’t be overeager and have a sense of “Others are others, I am I.

Small changes can bring about a fresh outlook. Are you just living each day and getting into a rut? By making small changes in the things you do, your day to day life can become fresh and exciting

Perfect Liberty 2012.24

Today being a Friday and the 13th. it has the promise of being a grand day. The temperature is rising, yes there is snow, but it is not freezing cold out there, it is nice. If you can’t get out, find something to do that you’ve been putting off. I know I am not alone.. there are a lot of other people out there who thrive on enjoying the 13th when it rolls around and on a Friday!

What was will be again, never the same as it was, but it will BE.
