Happy Oct. 30th.

lanterns from the garden

Years ago I saw this plant and knew I had to have some in my garden. Now I have a wonderful bed of lanterns, so pleasing to the eye. It was my friend Eartha tho’ who took the initiative to actually get a picture before the frost comes and puts them all to bed for the winter. Thank you Eartha.

We all have good intentions, we all have creative ideas, and we all have at times missed out on our opportunities to follow through. That is why I have such an appreciation for the difference and the uniqueness of my friends. Life is so much richer and fuller when we embrace “new” encounters/situations. I give thanks everyday for my friends, I am so blessed,

New encounters can help you change Be up for anything even if its out of your comfort zone. This is a chance for you to improve yourself as a human being.

We are all facing the challenge this year on how we will celebrate (Hallows Eve) Halloween. A time when many enjoy the crazy silly ways we can welcome the coming season, and say good-bye to the summer. In Canada we already have had Thanksgiving, but our neighbours in the States, are preparing for theirs. Pumpkins, and all the trimmings of that holiday are bountiful in the shops and outlets. Fall is a brilliant season!!

However you decide to spend this week-end.. be safe, be careful and stay well.

Expressions

Always express yourself for the happiness of others as well as yourself. The happiness of those around you can lead to your own happiness. Cultivate a heart to always wish for the happiness of others.

Offer your services instead of expecting from others. Take the initiative to do what you can to help others. Understand their needs and act swiftly.

enjoy the moment

Enjoy the moment while you wait. Things come about when they are meant to happen. Think of what you can do for the time being, and don’t rush the outcome.

a memory

photo by Dave Renz

The above picture immediately reminded of a dream I had years ago. Yes the picture took me back to a hike that my Mother had organized when she was a leader in CGIT, (Canadian Girls in Training) My Dad had come with us to share in the experience and take pictures. Taking pictures was his passion, this picture is much like the interpretation of the moment, he would have shared,

Canadian Girls in Training, or CGIT, is a church-based program for girls and young women aged 11–17 throughout Canada.[1] Girls who join the CGIT vow to “Cherish Health, Seek Truth, Know God, Serve Others and thus, with [Jesus’] help, become the girl God would have me be”. (Wikipedia)

My education began at an early age (to be of service, and dedicate my life to helping and being there for others) I don’t know why Dave chose to publish the photo in these muted tones, but he did and for me it was breath taking. I wanted to share this picture of his for two reason.. one because I found it to be so touching and poignant. And 2, I feel it will “talk” to others in a way, words can’t.

Good or Bad it is your mirror. Sincere expressions invite good results, but insincere expressions can lead to unexpected trouble.

looking for birds

Trekking through an area of land that until very recently was unknown to me, it is only some 15 minutes from me.. Yes I’ve been driving by for years, and never knew his gem existed. Took a serious world ” happening” to get me to actually get out of my car and explore the area. Also.. to give credit where it is due, it took my dog taking off on me out of the car .. and heading down one of the trails with an urgent need to explore.

I took him back there today, but on a leash. He was not impressed. The little missy, balked at going out, so .. guess what.. she got left at home. Too bad so sad, was not going to insist. When Velcro and I came home, we were both full of the most wonderful tantalizing smells. Don’t know how they communicate, but they certainly seemed to be having a good exchange of information ..

About the birds, I saw flashes of colour here and there, and birds darting from one tree to another.. but was unable to get one to light long enough for me to grab a picture. What I can tell you is that right now the woods are filled with the chirping and singing of the many species that are taking temporary accommodation in the area as they migrate through Ontario.

Life is really an adventure, some chapters are easy reading, and others are jam packed with excitement, tension, and the unknown.. Whatever chapter you are in, you have to know.. that the next page will bring something new into your awareness, it will be forever unfolding.

There will always be a way. if you persist and be creative without giving up, you will find solutions that you had not considered before.

Sands of time

both fun, but… which is now
virtual party time in costume
of course there is always that one person who didn’t read the memo

This has been a time to reconnect with friends. No matter how strange, how weird or different they are.. they are friends.. It has been a bit of everything in my world. If anything this “illness” that has befallen the world has shown me is that there is a horrific rift, or divide.. I am hearing humans from all walks of life and the hemisphere .. wanting to point a finger.

We are all human beings, as one friend stated so simply”stupidity is rampant everywhere”

We all want the same thing. Peace and Harmony in our lives. Our families, friends safe. Why is it so difficult for us to learn to, if not agree, at least listen and try understanding another “point of view” I met with a friend the other day who was “hurting”.. we commiserated by sharing “songs”. Life is what we make of it.

Remember to feed the child in you, the young adult, the artist, writer, foodie, whatever makes you happy…. What a wonderful opportunity we have been given. Time to make new friends, catch up with family and friends, or just rediscover your own likes and dislikes. Quality Time!

There are a lot of positives out there. Smile… it feels good to smile, and it catches on real quick.

and, there I was

Enjoying the moment, delighting in the colours, and the texture of what i had found. Gosh.. wonder what this is? I am enjoying the moment while I wait.

Desfrute do processo da espera. As coisas se concretizam no tempo certo. faca o que deve ser feito agora, sem apressar o resultado.
