It’s OK! God is watching over you. Things turn out for the best. Don’t be captured by momentary troubles but continue doing everything with sincerity.

First I want to thank everyone for their prayers and good wishes.. I certainly appreciated hearing from you knowing my well being was being assisted by your prayers .. I can’t promise that I won’t try to take down another dead tree on my own… but I will exercise more awareness when I hear my knee snap and my leg give a whimper to PAY ATTENTION… and not try to “finish up what I started”
This will be a quickie since I can’t sit for any length of time.. the affected muscles etc. run up into my buttock.. I’ve been provided with a set of crutches which I need to even get off the bed. And friends are coming by to ensure that I “behave”, eat, etc. the dogs are being wonderful.. carefully staying out of the way when I try to manoeuvre from the bedroom to the bathroom. I’m afraid I might have to spent more time reclining with the leg up.. for another 24 hours. (sigh I’m a terrible patient, I want to find a way to get back into the woods to finish what I started!) (Ducks as Awen readies to whop me with a fish)
OK OK I promise I’ll be good (for this morning anyway ) All the medication yesterday is still making its way through my system. Later I’ll catch up on your adventures and drink in the wonderful visual presentations.
Take care everyone! Enjoy the crisp fall weather..
btw. anyone else, have WP change the font etc. on them?
When they dry, I bring them in .. the leaves have gone, there only remains the lanterns on their stems.. they make lovely centre pieces, or arrangements that brighten up the seasons when we are indoors more. I was told they hold spiritual pods inside that have gathered their energy from the sun during their growing season. =^_^= Because I love the idea of having the natural elements of the Universe sprinkled throughout my living space, these are “gems” that I enjoy all year long.
Do everything willingly and joyfully. Your upbeat attitude will make things more cheerful and enjoyable.

Refreshing greetings not only enrich your mind, but also make the other person’s heart feel good. When you say hello, stretch your chest, raise your head and cheer up with a smile.
In the cold gray of the morning light, I got myself ready to find the elusive wild turkeys… Nope, not a one did I see, but I did get some good shots in before the pending rain would start. I used the time to try different settings on this new camera of mine, and to get used to holding it, its big and I have small hands. I like “doing” .. used to enjoy getting up everyday to go to work too. Yup I’m “one of those” It is not “work” when you love what you do ..
What is “normal” is different for each individual. Everyone has a different way of thinking and doing. It’s important to understand others’ feelings.
When you get stuck, go back to the beginning. Could it be that you have forgotten what initially sparked your enthusiasm? By remembering what inspired you in the beginning you will feel a renewed enthusiasm.
I was in rural Ontario and Quebec yesterday, it was an awesome day for discoveries, colours were vivid and bright in many areas, but when I reviewed the pictures I had taken, I found that most of my interest yesterday was in the places we came across with a past.
Enjoy whatever the day has to offer. Reflect on the past, for it is the “history of what was’ that we build on our tomorrows – Live life with “makoto’ (sincerity).
Let’s begin today with a smile. Let’s start the day with a positive outlook, looking forward to what we can discover.

In PL we learn that it is through living with appreciation for all the blessings we receive in life, positive & or challenging… we will continue to be blessed… the practice of prayer on a daily basis helps us maintain a balance in our lives.
fyi. for all of you who commented on the upside cars in last Thursday’s blog, it was an art installation that is held each year in Quebec City… the 3 cars were put there by artists who filled them with earth and made gardens for the viewers to enjoy. It was one of many displays along selected streets in part of the city.
May your day/week be filled with much happiness and positive productive moments.
The rain comes to wash away the dust, dirt and grime of the past weeks. We mortals that we are, also have a way of clearing away the “mental” debris we accumulate over the days and nights we cohabit on this planet. We pray! Whether prayer is silent, or voiced, we offer our thanks and express our gratitude for everything in our lives, whether they have been happy or challenging.
In PL, we offer our gratitude and prayer monthly with a ceremony at the church, however, I try to start and end each day with a prayer of gratitude, I offer my thanks for a good night of sleep and my thanks for presenting me with a brand new day. In the fall, there is a stir of excitement in the air when the weather starts to change, we visually see the beginning of a new season. Orange’s and bright yellows begin to appear with dashes of crimson here and there, till almost all the greens disappear and only the fall pallet is before us. Then we are blessed with a cornucopia of golds, burnt umber, rusts and the evergreens that remain show off the many variances of their colour range.
The foundation of our faith, PL Precept # 1 Life is art…. “as a living person, you interact with the people and things around you in order to express your feelings. Your life is shaped by the way you express yourself each and every day. Through your daily artistic expressions, you can create your one and only life.” It is easy to get so caught up in the chaotic energy of the world around us, that is why it is so important to remember to pray and give thanks each day for the blessing of life itself.
Our lives are our very own unique work of art. If you cut corners or miss important details, you will not be able to live up to your fullest potential. PL Precept #2 To live is to expressOne’s Self!!
I am most grateful to each and everyone of YOU, for being part of this community of “friends” who share and enjoy this world with me. I truly feel blessed and appreciate your visits and the sharing of your thoughts, stories and pictures that I get to enjoy and read… Oyashikiri…
