A happy moment. a memory of my Mother who loved watching old movies.. AND just to start the day off with a smile.. with YOU. (click on link below)
Lucky – Nicholas Brothers
Lucky is a happy clip, I grew up being entertained, we appreciated talent, we laughed shows were designed to delight and musicals were her favourites. She loved music that told stories of life, love, heartbreak, hope and more love.
Believe.. life is good. and it will be.
Don’t Hold Anything Back
Give it Your All (PL Calendar day 16)
Always approach things with full enthusiasm and energy. Then things will develop in a new direction.
When I started my magic pony, I was not wanting, nor had I any thought of a pony I was working my water-colour paints in a way I would usually work my acrylics. The more I seemed to try to go in one direction, the more the paints pulled me in another. Finally I just stopped, stood back and stared at the page. That is when I took the picture I used yesterday. I could see this face looking at me, and it said “My Little Pony” What???? I remember seeing these pink ponies in the toy section of various shops. Of no interest to me. Nope, not into pink ponies.
OK, I decided to ignore it.. and leave it overnight. Hello.. next morning the face I saw was still there. Since I have learned over the years, that if I see something and it doesn’t go away, if I tried to obstruct or force another direction.. the results would be a disaster .. meaning I wouldn’t like it, and it would be a “garbage” page.
We learn from our mistakes. If I was to give it my all, then I needed to follow my instinct, so what if it didn’t pan out, it wasn’t going to anyway. So.. I played with it till the words/feeling was to “stop” Now I’ve put it aside, and we will see if I am called back to it or not. Meanwhile I have my “magic” or “fantasy” pony.
Life is. The little face makes me smile. Go figure.
Friday the 16th. Live it to the fullest. Make it count.

PL calendar day 13
There will always be a way
As long as you re serious, there is no reason for you to give up. Move forward one step at a time and things will always turn out for the best.
This sculpture gave me such a sense of “fun and freedom” when I saw it. I have had it in my picture library for some time, and do not recall where I got it. If anyone is aware of the artist, please let me know.
On the 11th. we celebrate our ancestors. Through this ceremony we express our gratitude for the love and virtues of our ancestors, asking for continued guidance and protection that we may continue to live the PL “Way”
There are days, when Mother Nature provides us with a magical world, at such times I feel so alive, so blessed . Cherish each moment, we only live them once.
There is beauty, and quiet serenity in the loving arms of Universal LOVE. God is Love.
