The 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.
Life 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.

A black void. As an artist, I had a moment the other day, where I wanted to express that very moment, not think about anything but saying, Blah. Snap, and so what. Followed by many exclamation marks.
My eyes searched my workroom… till they fell on a big bottle of black glue. Ah Ha! I took an old canvas and began to just vent with the glue on the canvas. It was black and shiny that I dug out a bottle of cut glass pieces I had for dear knows what reason… and some gold cording. Then gave way to.. come what may.
Voila… t’is a black void. my sometime co-pilot, when she saw it, said it looked like “inside a sparkling cave filled with shiny somethings. enchanting” =^_^= I have been blessed with wonderful kind friends.
In the sunlight or under a light, it is true it has bling. Bling that winks and shines in a very cheerful way. This is an example of, starting out with a blank – need to just vent/express…. letting go, and then seeing the results.
PL Calendar day 9 (2019) It’s interesting because it’s different
Even if someone totally disagrees with you or does things differently, you may learn something from them. Avoid getting trapped in the mindset, “This is the way it has to be” and free your mind to consider other possibilities.
Waiting for 2018 to end. What a year it has been, Major changes, a much loved story book romance, came to an end. Lost in thought last night, I wandered through the open doors of the memory vault. Each new day, brings me further away, from the day last May when I was left behind at the runway, my time not yet come to fly.
What will the new year bring, one will never know till the time comes. Meanwhile, the clock ticks a steady beat..counting down to what…
Chinese New Year is at the start of February this year. We will enter the year of the Pig. Tonight in my part of the world, we will slide into 2019, a little over twelve hours from now. If I didn’t know the time would it make a difference. Not really, my life would still be in change mode, and after a good sleep, I will wake to begin yet another day of adventure and exploration.

Your world will change when you look at things in a positive light

virtual art Q
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.
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!
I came, and went, laughed, cried, blossomed and flew away.
You missed that moment, didn’t you?
A moment comes, and vanishes, within seconds,
true intentions come from the heart
no day is like another
a moment lost in anger
is time not lived in happiness
with winter comes a calming bliss
purity and stillness
no matter the chaos around us
when we are present in every way
a moment is never missed
life is what we make of it
choices we make,
be happy today, make it a special day
why, because you can!
mixed media -Q
Here we go. Tim Horton’s in Ireland. No more can we say, “only in Canada” the world has changed so much over the years. What hasn’t changed is the bond of friendship that is ongoing, and is built and groomed with unconditional love. Acceptance, and respect.
Yesterday in PL, being the first of the month, we celebrated with the PL service of Peace. Every month, on the 1st day of the month. at 10 a.m. all over the world where there is a church, or a member of PL, time is made to pray for world peace. Through the service at the church we pray for World Peace and rededicate ourselves to live as a peaceful human being, in our own worlds, which includes, our home, school, work and communities.
When we love with makoto “sincerity” and dedication of purpose, we are blessed with love in our lives that continues to shine, forever and always. It is not measured in earthly ways, days, months, years, it is, simply life itself. Like breathing in and out. we don’t count how often we breathe in and out during our days and nights, we just Breathe …. Love should be in our action, words and hearts. Always.
Life is Art. PL Precept #1
Harmony leads to world peace
reminder. Pick up your 2019 calendar at the church, if you are unable to get to the church and would like one, contact me thank you, obrigada/o
