Being Present

Photographer Daniel Cadieux https://www.dancadphotography.com/blog/

I met this photographer some time back, even before I saw his website and his Instagram, I was impressed with his focus and attention to detail. He could look up into the tree tops and point out the birds looking back at us. I actually didn’t even notice him at first, he had been standing a few feet away from me … just observing waiting … I was at the feeders.. tending the birds.

Over time I got to see him often enough that we got to speak to one another. He shared some of his pictures and I was an immediate fan. The other day I found him (minus zero weather) on the ground along a country side road in much the same position as you see him above, but waiting for the robins and their friends to return to a small puddle of open water to drink and bathe. His patience and attention to the moment is so keen.. I am always reminded when I meet up with him.. that I need to slow down and take in the moment, I will only get one chance at it.

Take action without thinking too hard. No matter how hard you try to foresee the future, you really don’t know how things will turn out. Do your best and see how it plays out..

Today is a day for me to stand back, take a deep breath, allow the moment and the environment to happen, to still the hurry, the bustle and the noise created by others to influence my “quiet’…

think, now

Think “Now is the time” Instead of “it’s no use now”. don’t give up by thinking it’s too late. Tell yourself that there is more that can be done.

Have you noticed that late fall, early winter, there is a quiet that falls over the woodlands as it adapts to its nakedness. Without the camouflage of foliage we see the true “bones” of the forest. Driving along the road if we drive slowly and look down between the rows and isles of the growth, we see “paths” and “possibilities” that we don’t get to enjoy in the spring, summer months. Every season has its “reason”

1st of October

the blush of change

Depending on where you are in the city and surrounding areas, the colours are beginning to deepen .. In some areas, there is a rainbow of colour, yet you drive out west of the downtown core and the greens are still dominant. Change is on its way, you can feel it in the air, smell it on the breeze that brings a chill and hovers before drifting off. The Robins are being social, coming out and being more present around us when we are on the trails. Every day I hear the sound of the crows as they inspect and search out their winter “resorts”… yesterday another photographer was patiently waiting for a “big” as she called it, wood pecker that had been frequenting the feeder area.

Today being the 1st, in PL it is when the PL ceremony for Peace is performed – today at 10 a.m. if you can’t make it to church, please take a moment to pray for world peace. Remember to show appreciation and give thanks for yesterday, and NOW.

Each person’s peace leads to world peace. First of all, you have to be happy. That happiness will spread and be the foundation of World Peace.

I appreciate YOU.

Friends!

True love transcends all boundaries.

Be careful about saying “It’s probably good enough. Wholeheartedly do what you notice, when and how you notice it.

Changes

Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Those who improve with age embrace the power of personal growth and personal achievement and begin to replace youth with wisdom, innocence with understanding, and lack of purpose with self actualization.

Bo Bennett

In PL we strive to live in the present, to be in the moment. When I arrived to find the thrasher had been by to clear the overgrown brush .. it was a bit of a shock at first. All the lush vegetation had been cut back, and most of it taken off to where-ever … I know it is important to maintain a balance, especially we have had such dry hot weather, lots of humidity and little rain. Still it was an adjustment. But.. in life, adjust we must.

Be careful about saying “It’s probably good enough” Wholeheartedly do what you notice, when and how you notice it.

The thrasher is ruthless, it begins its journey and removes and takes down anything that is in its path. What was, is no longer, it is pulled out by the roots, or simply shredded into pieces. Nature will regroup, simply pause to asses and then rebuild. It began to rain, halfway up the road, so I turned back, but not before I got some wonderful wood pieces for my “collection” There is always a positive, we cannot have one without the other.

that’s life folks!
Till soon

Appreciation

Express your appreciation with enthusiasm. Appreciation is the driving force for progress and development.

NB. no service Sunday because of this evening’s ceremony.

Sunday 6th.

Sunday and its a lazy day. Temperatures threaten to hit the high 80’s even into the 90’s today. A day to chill and take it easy. Just because you have a vacuum in the house doesn’t mean you have to use it. =^_^= Find a way to make this a YOU day.

Don’t think “I Can’t” from the start. Begin by taking the first step, then you will be able to see what comes next and a path will open.

For the sale of others, society, and world peace. Always live keeping in mind everything you do is for the sake of others, society and world peace.
