snow Friday

IMG_5965There is one thing to say about snow that I really enjoy.  As soon as I wake, I can hear the difference,  The world (on the street around me) is quiet.

The leaves, and colour that remained on the ground is now.  A blanket of white.

Thursday Doors

 

This delightful learning tool was in a thrift shop.  Each door has a different key, keys are included.  The child learns to find the key and open the door it belongs to. Or goes to the door to be opened, then finds the key to open it.. then lock it.  If only I had picked it up when I saw it.  I had never seen one before.

next… a window view of the alps below.

Enjoy your travels today.  Walk through a few doors.  Create your own adventure.

Falling out of bed

IMG_9123Good morning, bom dia a todos

Does anyone know where that expression comes from? Nope not me, it is just the phrase came to me, and won’t go away. I certainly didn’t fall out of bed this morning, but instead of my usual, I think today I may be more like garlic.

Maybe it will be a salad kind of day?

PL calendar day 10

Everyone has their own unique personality —-  Each one of us possesses unique qualities.  Let’s accept and respect one another.

sometimes

IMG_6641Sometimes, we just sit around,

we don’t make a sound

except perhaps a burp now and then

really the day stretches on

we don’t know where the time has gone

It takes years of trial and error to develop this useful skill.  We live in a world of go, go, go.

IMG_9110Sitting with only the gentle stirrings of the world around you.

Can be a difficult task indeed.

Try bundling up and doing it in the dead of winter.

It is an amazing release of unwanted “baggage”.

Sometimes, the road that beckons isn’t the road you are on.

IMG_7574You will find that stepping into a different space, will also bring you to another place and maybe even time.

Live each moment with the interest you give a new book that has caught your fancy, where each page is riveting and you drink in each word, fingers poised to turn the page.

Our lives are just as interesting, when we sit in the silence of the moment, The reality of BEING is rejuvenating.

Sometimes, it simply is… no more..no less…

Bom dia everyone, have a good day dear friends.. I carry you in my heart always..

the mist within

IMG_1470

We leave a trace everywhere we go, it seems impossible to enjoy without some how taking or leaving something behind. Some harmonize better than others. A wound may heal physically, but it will never be the same, ever.  Life does go on, we are blessed in ways that we will never truly fully understand, Nature will soon blanket the scarred and littered land around us with the beauty of fallen snow.

IMG_1477The fairy tale world of a winter wonderland, will lull the weary, allowing for time to recharge and erase haunting memories.  Right now she is blessing us with a wonder of colours and vistas of raw umber and burnt sienna interwoven with deep golden hues interspersed with  rusty reds,

IMG_1475Today, I am the birch, patiently waiting for you to  drive by, tires rolling across the asphalt, and the quiet to reappear till the next motorized vehicle comes along.  Please do not be offended, it is simply time for us to hibernate.,

inner travels

IMG_1362

I lay watching the slow rotation of the ceiling fan, a very lazy start to the day indeed. Keeper (female whippet) lay sprawled out beside me.  She was showing her nurturing side, concerned that today might be a repeat of yesterday.

IMG_1358She gets very concerned when I cry and wail.  Velcro (male whippet) her older brother, takes it in stride, he saw and lived through my display of raw emotion, when my husband was in his final days, and Keeper got out and ran away.  Yesterday he simply got up from his favourite chair in another part of the house, to come  lie beside me, to lend me his support and quietly wait it out.

IMG_1360My son the other day, looked at me, and said, ” Mom, its OK to cry”  and of course it is, but for me, I can’t just cry, I have to be  totally shaken and depleted, the body has to over-ride my happiness and stubborn mind that tells me, that there is just so much to be thankful for.  And of course there always is, I am so blessed.

However sometimes, the sadness, and discontent of others is too much for me to bear. I feel their pain, frustrations and disillusion.  And I have learned that I cannot be happy for someone else.  You can not lift the happiness from your life, like a shawl and put it around someone else. You can be kind, listen, share in their “present state” and lend what-ever support you can.

IMG_1363

In the end, the choice belongs to them.  Yesterday I cried, all the sadness, the disappointments that I have listened to for the last many days and months, welled up and demanded to be released. I wanted escape, and freedom from the continuous onslaught of negative news, the vicious nature that is surfacing in the world around us.  The curiosity we seem to have for the gossip tabloids, that thrive by reporting or should I say offering up gossip about cheating, lying and fornication.  Where we lust instead of love.

IMG_1365Time for some time out.  Quality time without a cell phone,  computer, laptop, or tablet. There is a reason, dogs (pets) are the best of friends.  They offer unconditional love. Nothing more, nothing less.

Cherish your family and friends, offer kindness and understanding to those around you, when there is unkindness, or dishonesty aimed in your direction. Deflect it, or let it pass you by.  Life is too short.

PL Calendar, day 26        Maintain a Positive Attitude and Wisdom will                                                   come to you.

a quiet moment

 

hwy to alfred1

Quiet, blue skies, puffy clouds, shadows, the dignity of dying, allowing for the next season to begin.  Gratitude and Acceptance.

Some stay behind, some go on to reclaim their freedom, their work on earth is done.
