PL Calendar day 17

Be Calm, Be Kind without compromising

Hesitating to share our true feelings hurts not only ourselves but others.  While respecting the other person’s feelings say what you need to say.

Life is what we make of it.  Life is full of challenges and opportunities.  Seize the day, make every second count.

Thank you to each and every one of you who has taken the time to write and ask me how my husband is doing.  There is nothing more that can be done to “stall” or “stop” the cancer.. it is doing what it has set its mind to do.

My husband we hope will come home this week for palliative care with a team of health care workers who come to the home, including a palliative care physician. Should it get to be too much to handle in the home environment, we will move on to the next step .

Blessings to each and every one of you.  Your caring, your support, is so appreciated. We hold you near and dear, each ray of energy you send our way is caught up and embraced with love.  We return the love to you a hundred fold. OYASHIKIRI

Give it your all…

being attentive

april 14Pl Calendar day 15

Being Attentive Makes life more enjoyable

Live life paying careful attention to every detail, be it big or small.  By doing so, you will be able to experience the subtle joy in things.


My studio mate.  She patiently sits waiting to observe, or comment on the goings on in the studio.  Lately she is watching me try my  hand at acrylic “pouring”.. I am working on being attentive, trying to learn a new technique.  Still not sure how I feel about it, but that is what life is, trying something new, if it clicks with me, I’ll pursue it, if not.. I’ll move on.  I  am practicing the art of “letting go”

How about you, tried anything new recently? Are you engaged, attentive in your day-to-day activities…..   …….. Here is wishing you a wonderful Sunday.

time moves on

When I visited the rapids the other day, I was telling my friend how it was many years ago, people sitting on the rocks, enjoying picnics on the grounds.  Now access to the water is blocked off for safety reasons.  The water is constantly churning and thunders down the channels between the rocks with a deafening roar.

It was gray and overcast on the day the pictures were taken, and I hadn’t expected the pictures to be almost monotone, shades of black and white.  They just turned out that way.  I find the pictures have a timeless quality to them, I am enjoying them, and allowing the memories to slowly filter into the present.

Today April 14th. the calendar reads..

Be a person who invites happiness

Live your life with good timing and respond quickly to whatever appears in front of you.  By doing so, things will keep getting better and better.

I believe that.  I drive by on the bridge you see there, often, sometimes, once or twice a week.  I travel that way to get to a part of the west end … I don’t even look at the rapids. With the truck windows up… one doesn’t hear the water.  Making time to actually stop and visit the park, was unplanned.  But in doing so, I have created another great memory. a “happy”

“Happy” makes me smile, “Happy” is a feel good.  May your day be filled with lots of “HAPPY”

Love is-

looking out across the water on a dull day, and seeing a crystalized tree, thanks to the cold mist.

there is beauty in every day, every moment, and every second, we need only look with our hearts.

particle fragments

lexi light show_003Bom dia

hello Morning.  Watching the particle show last night, I was dazzled by the many displays and the constant changes happening before my eyes.  The artist performing the particle show is very gifted, the changes ebbed and flowed to the beat of the music with a rhythm that was almost hypnotic.

As I watched her weave her magic, I thought, “wouldn’t that be something to try to do” that thought lasted but a second or so. Reality tapped me on the other shoulder.  If I was doing what Lexxi was doing, then I wouldn’t be in the audience captivated, I would be focused on being creative.(active)

My choice at that moment, was to be her admirer, someone enjoying her talent, allowing my own thoughts to drift and my “battery” to charge, my creativity to be fired up my her talent, and use of it. (passive)

That is balance, that is knowing that there are times to be active, and times to be passive.

Have a fabulous start to a brand spanking new week….
