Wednesday

alexandria 8.4.eTravel down an old country road on a lazy afternoon just two old friends, out for a drive. A country lass and an urban miss.  The old hydro lines are what caught my eye.  We stopped so I could get a shot.  We were not that far off the beaten track, yet, the fields of green, and the old lines, gave me a feeling of another time and place,.

Best of all I was with someone who had grown up in the country, and loved the fields of crops and the newly cut hay just as much as I did.  We would sigh with contentment when we passed peaceful gathering of cows enjoying the shade of sprawling trees  sheltered by outcrops of large boulders and rocks.

Too often I am traveling down a major highway or road to a destination, this was a just because drive.  No deadline, no specific time frame, just a drive, with a stop for lunch at a marina along the way. talking was optional.

alexandrria 8,4,18Be kind to yourself.  Make time for you.  Lazy summer days are few and far between when we live a busy lifestyle.

That day we had mostly sunshine, but the rain did fall, we got the black rolling clouds, and vivid display of lightning.  Made our day complete.  Have you ever smelled the lush green meadows after a rainfall?  Experienced the return of the sun and clear blue skies after an explosive down pour.  the change in temperatures during all this variety of weather.  Mother Nature works her magic in very special ways.

Get out and enjoy the day, make today a special 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.

found VV July 10.18We begin our journeys with such innocence

so many dreams, hopes, genuine happiness

we find ourselves discovering something new every day.

Why do some of us stop discovering, and allow routine to take over..

found VV july 10These dolls I found the other day

Have been around, the top one probably more so than the other one

Where have they been, what stories could they tell.

These little treasures will come with me to the next Doll meeting

hopefully I will learn more there.

For the moment they have a new place to stay and experiences to  acquire.

IMG_3654Every day is a new opportunity to live another story line, every day is a new beginning.

Look down, look up, look around, pleasures abound, waiting to be found.

the door

doorHello door

how come you are so small

if I open you, where will I go

first you need to open me

only then will you see

if it is possible to enter within

well, I thought that isn’t so welcoming

still it was a pretty door,

I was intrigued

I bought the door and brought it home

now you are mine

I smiled and thought of when I would go inside

the door silently stared back at me

yes, I am yours it finally said

but just because you bought me

doesn’t mean that I will open up for you

hmm there was a message there

not so much in what was said

or was it……….. what was said

I had the door, the physical door was in fact mine

no doubt there, it sat on my desk as pretty as ever

Sometimes, it is not the door we want .. is it?

It is what is inside…. or what we “think” is beyond the door

Have you come across a door of late

where you  are willing to wait

to see if you have the “key” to open the door

and go beyond the physical barrier

of a shut ” door”

May 11.

The 11th of every month, in PL, we celebrate and give thanks to our ancestors, parents and those who supported us throughout our lives.

When the road ahead looks dark, we have to believe and have faith, that if it is the road ahead of us, and one we are meant to take, that it will be welcoming.

me and you

april 25. Q china dream

There are days when I am not really the person that I think I am.  Instead I am far away in another land.

On one hand, I feel no pain, and roam free across the plains

On the other, I am grounded, focused on the sounds all around  me

who am I really, I can be here and everywhere

nothing can hold me back, there is nothing that I lack

china April 25_008

Take my hand, let us bond in forever land

you and me, me and you

dreams are part of who we are, and no matter where we are

the stars above, shine on us all… … Q

“PL Calendar day 1 ” Harmony leads to World Peace

It is important to lie in harmony with our surroundings.  The basis of a peaceful society is to maintain harmonious relationships.

It is true, no matter where we are, how far the distance, I will always love YOU.

day 20

Day 20  PL Calendar

You are YOU, Others are Others

You have your own way of doing things, and others have their way of doing things.  Don’t worry about what other people will say.  Simply take care of the task at hand.


268f260c0df0478db6148f1776d78360

And that is the reality.  That is just the way  it is.  Our experiences, our past shapes our future….  Make each moment count.  Live each day with new “eyes” … be open to new experiences, choices, we all have them…

Tomorrow is the 21st  For members of Perfect Liberty, we celebrate with a Thanksgiving Service.  We give thanks and show our appreciation for the blessings of the past month, while sincerely renewing our determination to follow and practice the Precepts and Principles of PL.
