obstacles

Strive to overcome obstacles by changing your mind-frame. Things don’t always go as planned. When that happens, try changing how you look at the situation or how you are doing things The outcome is in your hands.

It is useless to hold a person to anything he says while he’s in love, drunk or running for office.

Shirley MacLaine

Any woman who understands the problems of running a home will be nearer to understanding the problems of running a country.

It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong.

introduction cards

Remember when the calling card was the way we introduced ourselves to people we met. Especially when making our way in the business world, your calling card was a way of saying, hi, this is who I am.

Tonight, I have been cleaning out again, this led me to opening a box that had an old card holder in it. Wow, each and every card held a memory or story of an encounter made years ago. Some contacts, I remember very clearly, and others not so much, yet each were part of that particular phase of my adventure here on earth.

While working I took advantage of my home time to listen to old gospel songs, by Ernie Haase & signature Sound https://youtu.be/cqTPok10HqQ

The bass singer Tim Duncan was an amazing singer. The quartet was always upbeat and made music in a way that to me was toe tapping and joyful. They made their performances so “fun”, to do that they had to apply a dedicated talent to their craft.

This reminds me that so much of what we do, daily, is live our lives as best we can, PL calendar day 15 – A cheerful Smile and expression makes everyone around you happy.

When you do everything with a smile, not only you but the the people around you will feel good. Always remember to put on a happy face.

midnight

midnight series d

Good morning, very early morning =^_^=  Bom dia  -domingo 17th,

At one time I would write, a pen always near by I would let the words flow, then sit back and discover where  or what my thought process was up to.  Now I am more likely to pick up a tube of paint, bottle of ink, or some other visual media that will allow my creativity to express in abstract.  Today I visited my favourite fine arts store and explored the new offerings that were set out to tempt and tease.

Interestingly what I came away with, was not what I had gone in to look at.  With spring around the corner, I was looking to add to my neon, spring collection.  Colours that would call out the fresh mint of new leaves, or the soft bunny colours and little baby chicks.  But no, I was drawn instead to colours that were metallic, pearlized and in the realm of steam punk maybe?

midnight series c In playing with the colours when I got home, I thrilled at the texture and fluidity of the paints.  So happy with my choices that I didn’t get to play with all of them, because, the testing, turned out to excite me just the way it was.

midnight series b

Midnight is the witching hour (or so they say)  I put on YouTube and listened to old favourites, Vince Gill, Alan Jackson, and looked again at the pages in my Art Journal, even the sheet of mixed media that I started on, looks too good to mess with.  Wonder how I will feel when I wake up and look at it again. =^_^=  Meanwhile.. you got it.. I am happy in the moment.

Rocking the Blues -My friend Kira loved the Blues, she built a club so all her friends could share in her passion for the blues.  DJs from all platforms came to share their tunes, and keep us rocking to the many genres of Blues that are played through-out this Universe of ours.  Didn’t matter who you were/are, if you loved the blues, shared in the camaraderie of the Blues Tribe, you were welcome.

I have been away and didn’t know she had taken ill again.  A friend wrote me last night, we will have a memorial played out over the week-end so that all of us that loved her can manage to get in.  All the DJ’s will have a time slot so that you can share in what Kira loved best.. listen to the blues and share and be with friends.

This woman was a rock for me over the many years she has een in my life. Her generosity and loving spirit will always be with me.  Rest in Peace my friend, you were an example to all of us,  This is not farewell, it is … till soon

Today, day 2, PL calendar is    Live each Day filled with hope(this was Kira’s mantra and motto)

Even in situations when you feel trapped with no way out, face every challenge with purpose and enthusiasm and you will always a find a way.

Happy Tuesday everyone

China, shang-li SichuanLately I have been watching a lot of Chinese Documentaries, learning about China, not the China I grew up with in my imagination. ( I was born in Canada) but historical and social memories, offered up by CGTN.com.  To say it has been a learning experience would be an understatement.

Today a dear friend in Australia sent me this link… Hans Zimmer “light” 

Hans Zimmer  “Light”  (The Thin Red Line)

Composed by Hans Zimmer, additional music by Klaus Badelt & John Powell, conducted and compiled by Gavin Greenaway and orchestrated by Bruce Fowler & Yvonne S. Moriarty.

The sights and sounds of  the video, were so calming, I wish you for you a serene day, that is filled with a light of promise, that will filter into all your tomorrows.
