Found, in a search and find mission the other day. Was actually looking for paint. Thinking I got off the “track” somehow. There she was, patiently waiting to be discovered. It was the highlights in her hair and her make up that “hooked” me. Her eyes are still bright with a sparkle. She had been well loved, now she was discarded waiting for her new fate.
I can easily be distracted when I am in an interesting place. I learn about myself and life by being open to new possibilities. My husband as a reporter, was a great observer, we could be in the same place at the same time, but his sense of what was happening, and mine were often very different. The unique components of his personality and character blended and added to my own “self”.
It is interesting how often in the day, his presence in my life is felt. Never be afraid of love or of differences, in a relationship, they make us stronger. Love is unconditional, it is faith, trust, & so much more. The word respect is so important, in defining a strong relationship, whatever the relationship might be.
Is RESPECT in your life? “love”
A great many people think they are thinking, when they are actually rearranging their prejudices. William James
When we are young and begin our journey, art is a creative outlet. A way of expression. Young eyes, will replicate with whatever medium they have on hand and will delight us with their drawings and insights.
As we travel the road of life, our thoughts and views take on different forms of expression. This drawing was done by my 6 year old niece, seeing it, I was filled with memories of the days where I lay with my pencils, crayons and rescued papers, designing what I knew would be the gowns and dresses of the “fashion” world.
What happens to our dreams, do they actually go away, or do they blossom into an assortment of different colour and shapes. I still think of drawing and using fashion when I sit to “express” my thoughts, the key word being -think- that disappears the minute I see a blank page/canvass. My innocence has had years of living to change its perceptions.
PL Precept #1 Life is Art, friends, go with the flow, the only constant in life is change. Life your life to the fullest, appreciate and be grateful for all the comes your way. Growing pain and all. You “art” will shine and continue to be uniquely yours.

There is always beauty in the world, it is for us to “see” it. LOVE is... no more, no less….

If you are going to do it, put your whole heart into it. Your degree of seriousness will affect the outcome. Your daily accumulation of effort towards your goals shows just how serious you are.

Fishing, although I don’t fish, is something I think would be a quiet, comtemplative type of activity. I have seen pictures of people kayaking along shorelines, alone, silently cutting through the water, seeing the lake, river, from a totally different angle. If fishing, is there really a need to catch or “hook up” with a fish, or is it the very activity itself.
My son an avid kayaker, loves to fish. Not to bring the outdoors home, but to communicate with nature in his comfort zone. The water is still cold, we have not had any seasonally warm temperatures..yet already he has been in swimming.
IF I had a bucket list, a lazy drift in a kayak would be in the top twenty. =^_^=
PL Calendar day 15 Live with firm determination, thinking that “this will turn out for the best”
Everything in this world progresses and develops. Always be positive, knowing that everything will turn out for the best.
PS I don’t swim (son’s kayaks)
