once upon a time

Chika Qu was born on a sim in Second Life. There she sits forgotten, no where to go, and no one to talk to. That is what happens, when time goes by, and another life is forgotten. Someone gets left behind.

Be free of your attachments. If you are obsessed with doing something in only a certain way, it narrows your choices. Keep your options open and be flexible.

surroundings

You have heard of writer’s block. The fall season for me unleashes ideas and thoughts like the rushing of water … such as you see above. It is the opposite to writer’s block, yet in some ways it is the same. Why. The ideas are so many and the desire to create so strong, nothing happens.

Time to step back and assimilate the many incoming thoughts and messages. Put some order into the thoughts so that you can process how best to express what is happening in your “head”

Your surroundings are a mirror of your thoughts. when you think “this is going to be hard” then your situation will become difficult \, instead think “let’s do this!” and face your situation with determination. then you will be surprised to see how smoothly things go.

I am so blessed with the thoughtful caring friends n my life. Two such angels arrived yesterday, seeing them, sharing with them and enjoying their so cherished gift of friendship, has already started to open spaces in my mind, allowing for some sense or order.

In stepping back from my “self” for awhile, how I want to express all these ideas that have come with the fall season and the various displays of colour, will start to appear in a way that I can explore and experiment.

It is exciting I have been gathering canvas, pulling out my paints, we shall see.

Meanwhile, this has not been a wordless Wednesday, but it is Wednesday the 16th. Have a wonderful day enjoy whatever you do… Share a smile,your inner beauty will shine through.

Acceptance

These are the locks next to the once called Chateau Laurier in downtown Ottawa. Since forever, I remember these locks, I would see them every day coming into Ottawa when riding public transportation, back… when =^_^=

I don’t get to see them now, I seldom drive that way, however they are still there, and so is the hotel, only now it has another name. Change is a constant in life, it happens. Sometimes we are in the thick of it all, and other times, for some reason, even though we are aware it is happening, it isn’t in our day to day…. so it isn’t till you happen to drive that way that you rediscover the “place” At that moment you often feel the past and present come together in a “wow” moment.

My husband proposed to me at the Chateau, in that second courtyard, as we overlooked the river and the historic landscape around us. It was enchanting. I was a princess, courted by her prince. It is a cherished moment, one I relived today, when I found the sealed envelope they gave me with his wedding ring, and I Ching piece he always wore. (after a funeral, this is what they do) I had completely forgotten…I had a past, and present moment that flashed through me when I found it in a drawer while looking for papers that I needed. =^_^=

First, Accept everything.... Life is filled with moments, sometimes happy and at times inconvenient. It is important to first accept every situation as it occurs and try to accept and understand it for what it is.

Unconditional love is forever…

** the first railing near the wall of the hotel.

** note I still don’t have e-mail. Bell is still working on it, it has only been since August..my account must look like a novel by now. Yes I have recorded every phone call, date, time and agent spoken to.

tools

I was reading a friends blog recently, he lives in Japan, and writes about the use of and the caring of good carving tools https://covingtonandsons.com/2019/10/04/sharpening-part-10-the-ura-%e6%b5%a6/ While reading his blog I was hit with the similarity of looking after one’s tools, and the maintaining of friendships. When we don’t look after our tools, they stop performing for us the way they were intended to perform. Especially a carving tool. A good crafts person, knows that it is essential he/she maintain his/her tools in good working order if the quality of work is to be preserved.

When a friendship is taken for granted, or mistreated, will it withstand the neglect or at times, miscommunication. In PL we learn that life is about us, and that we re responsible for our feelings. So I muse on if I feel slighted, or taken for granted, then it is up to me, to what…. dismiss the situation, put it aside and move on.

Not let it happen again, simply do not put your self in the position again. hmmmm the little voice says…. you could miss out on something…. you enjoy that friend. Did they intentionally set out to hurt you. The answer is no. It is simply their actions, were not appreciated by my sensitivities.

Darn being a philosopher is hard. I likely will opt for a good cry. Have a good nights sleep, and tomorrow, begin another day.

Now please everyone, don’t be sad or feel that I am blue.. I am living the moment, and will then move on. Life is too beautiful and inspiring, tomorrow I will be wide eyed and living my adventure.

gentle falling rain, will eventually, etch its presence in rock.

a shadow will change with the movements of the sun

a cloud is temporary

love is forever and unconditional

and, I am what I am, a temporary traveler in this space and time

itching palm

IMG_2584 updted, missing bottom inch

My Mother used to say, an itching palm means you will be favoured with $ and/or something pleasant. YAY. if I am not to sleepy from the allergy meds, it will be fun.  Another Mother memory is she said ear lobes can grow longer when you age. Mine have!!  Message to self, you still have lots to learn.


PL calendar day 9       It is 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.

My husband used to tell me that saving 50% was not a big deal,  he would be more impressed if I learned to save 100% .. Subtle … you think!!  I am still working on this one.

Smiles and waves.. love and love and love.
