Bom dia, bonjour, allo, there is no worries that there will be few hours in my day.  I have plenty  hours stretching out before me, no excuses to not getting more work done in the clearing up, cleaning out of my physical spaces.

Btw I have not cropped or changed the pictures, I am using them just the say my cousin Brian sent them to me.  He and Jon are honeymooning, I get to reap the rewards of their wonderful pictures  they travel from place to place.  There is something to be said of the arm-chair traveller, no packing, no jostling at busy airports, no line ups, etc.. At some time or other we have all been there.

Oh dear I am going to have to look at just what is I that box on the top shelf.  I am sure you have all had that experience too. Life is full of these little “treats”  reminder to self.. Find the happy in all that you do, to change direction I thought I would go make the bed, There I discovered a big lump !

he graciously got himself up and went somewhere else to have his lie in.  Very considerate.

It is now going on seven, I have been successful in removing some of the clutter, but fear not, there is still more for me to do once I take this lot away.  happy finding I found where I had put my sloth stamps away.

PL Principle #1  I will live paying careful attention, putting Makoto into all I say and do (sincerity)

PL Principle #3  I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things

To members of the PL community, tomorrow is the 11th, we will be celebrating Ancestors Day, service will be at 10 a.m.

Have a great day everyone, if your day is almost over.  I trust it was a good one for you.

I pray for the happiness and well BEing of all.  We are all ONE.

staying connected

calendar 26you have heard the expression ‘pretty as a picture’  this sure appealed to me, when I saw it on our Japanese calendar I took a photo and used it for one of my blogs

That was a while ago, and today if you ask me what it says…. I have no idea… I would have at the time because someone would have translated it for me.

Yesterday, during service, while everyone was taking in the moment, I felt a  ~current of change~ while I still was aware of all that was going on and being said, a part of me-disassociated.  I don’t know how else to describe it.  It was much like revisiting the above picture, knowing it, knowing I liked the sentiment, but what it was escaping saying me.

Usually I would have shared this with members, but for some unknown reason (to me) then, and still now, I fell silent.  That silence stayed with me for over an hour.  I interacted yes, but that niggling feeling remained, disappearing only after I got home.

It  like being connected and being disconnected at the same time.

I saw today

visions that danced before my eyes

flowers PA7simple beauty that caused my mind to stray

Every day  we have the chance to see an array of colours, that really do take the breath away.  Yet, somehow we fail to let the quiet impressions of calm, take hold and keep us in a serene state for the rest of the day. Instead we are affected by the sometimes negative incidents that pop up to distract and cause us to stumble or hobble.

It is at such times that I am reminded  how priceless good friends are.  A kind word, a gentle nudge towards a happier experience. little steps can go a long way.  Rain may fall, but the sunshine will always return. Always.

and so, the hours passed the mind tired of wandering down rocky pathways, and returned to wander blissfully towards the captivating land of dreams.  The flowers still smiled and waved from their happy beds, only this time their cheerfulness stayed to lead the way.  Sleep will come and tomorrow will be another day.

july 26.18

Pay attention, this is how it is done.  Find where you want to life down, then  let your body relax, put your head down and sleep. You have to really let go. It is easy, follow my lead.

Keeper July 25

I don’t think you are paying careful attention, look I’ll do it for you again, you see how I have positioned myself.  You are watching, yes.  Ok, here goes again.

KEEPER 7.25

You have to be totally committed to letting go, relaxing, and following through with the art of sleeping.

What… you want me to what.. move over so you can get into bed.

How thoughtless is that.

meat and spuds 7.20.18

Left overs for breakfast some like it hot.. which it was first time around… but this I had chilled.  Nice way to start a day.

cartoon dogThis is what happens when you start to doodle a mouse, but are not really into it.  distraction – big time –  I was using charcoal, the actual piece (still at the church) is different, I used scotch tape to remove shading in place.  I sent it around to friends, but got no reaction to “what happened”  .. ok that’s not true, because they all answered something completely different .. and not related to the picture I had included

Distraction?    We have a tendency to read sometimes., actually we glance at it, and then respond.  OK OK not all the time.. but often. I do it, and I know I’m not alone.  The only reason I worked at not doing it, was because I had a husband who having been an editor, was patient and consistent at pointing out to me how often people in his “circle” didn’t answer a question, or completely misread his missive.  He was especially hard on the journalist he worked with.  We won’t go into when he was doing government contracts.

Why do we skip over material, I have discovered that I have begun to skip over pages in a book when it gets boring.  Or, the writer is taking to long to get me to where I want to go.  How unfocused is that?

miceSee I do know what a mouse looks like…   I was going to doodle another mouse.  like duh!  DISTRACTION..

I’m suffering from Not In My BackYard…..symptoms…. torn…. church members and friends are being so helpful.  I’ve gotten some good ideas.  There are actually videos on YouTube. !!!! I’m learning something new every day.

Happy Sunday everyone!  Enjoy the day. Tomorrow is Monday!!!  focus, focus, focus.

A Thankful person will grow as an individual.

Happiness is meant to be shared

rusted vs reality

 

rusted memory

rusted metal & chrome

look at those lines

oh to have you for my own

time has not been kind

still I wish you were mine

be my July valentine

Q

july 19

oh do get on with it

I am trying to sleep

tsk, groaning and moaning over metal and chrome

honestly woman, you have me

 I am here with you at home

appreciate what is near and dear

metal and chrome, are cold

I am soft and warm

best of all .. I don’t rust

my words you can trust

It is true, I do have conversations with my dog.  she inspires some good ideas with her feedback.  It can take me a day or two to unravel her wisdom…but if she can get me to understand the jumble that often tumbles from my mind, why not…

PL Precept # 17  Grasp what is most essential

words are only words

sometimes they tell a story .. sometimes they don’t

It is the listener / reader that gives them meaning
