blushing

the tender touch of frost kisses on the leaves

Strive to overcome obstacles by changing your mind-frame. Things don’t always go as planned. When that happens, try changing how you look at the situation or how you are doing things. the outcome is in your hands.

branches

wet and plentiful

Drizzle, wet splattering droplets were landing everywhere.

still, even as a single drop hit the lens… I continued on my walk

At one time, I would have not even undertaken to wander out in the woods while it was raining. On this day, it didn’t matter… this was where I wanted to be.

yup, its tilted .. artistic license =^_^=

The day has many possibilities, like the branches on the trees, they begin and end somewhere.

treasures

Good Morning! It is after seven and it is dark outside. Groan. The shorter days have arrived. My internal clock still wants to wake up and get up and going much earlier. Thankfully my sleeping buddies are content to snuggle down and stay where it is nice and warm.

This picture is out of focus. I’m still getting used to my new camera… but what I was trying for.. you can see, are the drops.

will work on the macro -^_^=

The Virgo in me .. said… “you can’t use that, its out of focus” but the “lunar” part of me.. said “go for it” its the precious water droplets you want to show.. do it!” =^_^= the day was bright, the temperature was getting warmer, et voila… water droplets on some of the berries. The moment was perfect.. lol my shot wasn’t.

Lesson. Just because you want to do something, doesn’t mean you get to do it, or that if you do, it will come out the way you would like it to. That said, I had fun trying out my new camera, enjoyed the sun on my face, the slight breeze that rustled the leaves… AND… bonus, all kinds of birds, singing and dancing overhead as they explored from one branch to another.

I also met a fellow walker and her dog Scout. She also told me of the activities of the coyotes in the woods. A reminder that if there with the dogs, I will have to be vigilant and watchful.

A cheerful smile and expression makes everyone around you happy. When you do everything with a smile, not only you but the people around you will feel good. Always remember to put on a happy face.

It is important to be assertive, but maintaining harmony is just as important. Say what is on your mind clearly, but don’t be overly attached to your views. Respect the points of view of others and always seek to find a happy medium.

interlude

A drive to get petrol for my car, took me beyond where I “had” to go… down through county roads that led me past way too much colour and “wow” moments.

Is there such a thing as colour over-load. This year we have been simply inundated with day after day of Nature’s magical palette. Yes many of the trees are now bare.. Enough so that you can see their stark beauty as you walk the nature trail.

the birds that I saw flying from tree to tree, were plentiful, their songs were a constant melody of various notes as they went about their business.

If you are going to do it, do it joyfully. If you have to do something, choose to do it with joy and enthusiasm. By doing so, you will experience a deeper sense of beauty.

a happy place

there is something special about photographs that recall a moment in time

pictures that take us back to another time and place. When I found these pictures yesterday, I wondered if I could ever find them again. Computers are amazing wonders. I don’t know how often I’ve changed computers since these were taken, I’ve lost count. Yet, here they were on my screen popping up from files that the software genie had compiled.

I no longer questions how these things happen, the Universe has a way of delivering these little “presents” when I least expect it. I say thank YOU and feel gratitude for the discovery.

With the Thanksgiving week-end having just passed (Canadian) I got to spend a lot of time with memories as i looked over all the pictures. The pictures dated back to the early 2000’s A lot has happened since then. Seeing my Mother, sisters, family pets, in-laws, gave me much time for reflection. Of course, constant in all of them was my husband, it was his love and dedication to our “lives” that enabled much of what i got to see and live during the years he was here on earth with us.

It was a reminder not to squander the time we have here on earth.. it is a beautiful environment, and meant to be enjoyed, Friends, family, people we meet all have a purpose…We are all ONE….

We are all represented in Nature, we can be different seasons, different species, but we are all here to co-exist. It is time to focus on World Peace.

When you think “I’ve got it” think again. It is easy to misinterpret the situation and jump to conclusions. Always have a humble attitude and double check to make sure.

Catch and release

The joy of fishing, is not only the communication that happens between man and the treasured catch, it is the preparation for the day’s outing, the planning, the location, the endless time spent adrift on the water… and the time spent in the outdoors (Nature)

My son prefers to fish with his kayak, Dan the young man in these pictures is a Musky guide, he and his brother Emmanuel (Manny) have logged many hours on the water, it is their passion and in their blood. Remember yesterday in PL we held special ceremony thanking and being grateful for the gifts passed down from our ancestors, and other wisdoms we’ve learned from our “elders”

Dan had just posted one of the above pictures, he has a natural love of the outdoors. He grew up with the outdoors being very much a part of his “learning experience”.. Having spent time on a reserve in the summer with grandparents and extended family, his love and respect for the natural environment shines through now in his adult years. Both he and Manny are licensed guides, and as you can see from the pictures, year after year, put smiles on peoples faces by introducing them to the world of the Musky.

Fishing is about patience, and an ability to be in the present, to live and totally be at peace with your surroundings…. I know my son when he catches that worthy opponent ( fish) that gave him a good “fight”\, he thanks the fish for joining him, then gently releases him/her back into their environment.

There is so much that happens in the world around us, sometimes we forget that it (the world) is not all “greed” “corruption” and self centered, narcissistic and self indulgent “people/news” While there is a lot of negativity in the world, there is also a lot of POSITIVE, LOVING and, HEALING, ENERGY …. it is up to us as individuals to seek out the path that will lead to WORLD PEACE.

Each and everyone of us, has the power within US, to be good, to do good. We are not born with a natural desire to inflict pain, and be disruptive, we are born free of prejudice and bias.

On my bucket list, is to spend quality time drifting along a shoreline on a quiet day, with clear skies and an uninhabited countryside (of people) where only the sounds of Nature abound.

Diamonds, emeralds, rubies, they are not treasures to me, they are minerals taken from the ground and repurposed by man… they may sparkle and glitter, but they are cold. but I digress….. it is a beautiful day… open the door and welcome the brisk autumn day. If you are able to enjoy the fall colour of the hardwood trees, enjoy… soon… it will be a whole new season.

Live with gratitude in your heart. Spend as much time in and around Nature as you can. It is revitalizing.

Ancestors Day

Today, the 11th of the month, in Prefect Liberty we celebrate our Ancestors. Through the ceremony, we express our gratitude for the love and virtues of our ancestors and ask for their protection and guidance so we can continue to live the PL WAY. Service will begin at 10 a.m.

We are aware that many of you will be sheltering in place, we ask that you take a few moments at home to share in morning prayer with us.

All over the world, people are having to physically distance themselves from loved ones. In Canada this week-end it is our long week-end, a time when many of us would be gathering and sharing our table with our loved ones who do not live in our immediate “space”. May your creativity and love allow you to find ways to communicate virtually. Be grateful for the bounty we do have, and for the love and community we live in and belong to.

a memory photo from 2019

Be thankful to your parents and to your ancestors. You are here today because the “torch of life” has been continuously passed down. Always remember to be thankful.

Conversation

Hi, Hello there, I’m new to your area, are you available for a bit of a chat? Yes I know we’ve not met before, but I sure would like to get to know you a bit better.

True, I guess you recognize from my tone and the unfamiliar words that I’m not someone who is used to being up close and personal with creatures as beautiful and majestic as you two. I really do want to make friends?

Thank YOU for being so kind … allowing me into your personal space. Now that we’ve come this far, what can I do or say that will let you know I am appreciating your willingness to come closer.

Ahhhh the wire stretched just above the fence has an electric current, so be careful you say… Thank you, I appreciate your letting me know. I will be extra careful, I’ve picked some clover for you.. Allow me to share with you

Only one horse was interested in coming over to know more about me, which pleased me immensely since I know so little about these amazing animals. I did search the field around where we were for some bunches of clover, and he/she did partake. Once we established that rapport, the other one did come over but cautiously

.The dark fellow came over after a bit and shared in our little spur of the moment, “treatfest” I found out later that these two were new to the paddock having only just arrived the day prior to my visit.

Do i talk to strangers? yes I do. Given the right circumstances i am a person who likes to meet new people, I will say “Hi” share a smile or a brief greeting, I find it a wonderful way to spend time, sharing a positive back and forth with another “BEING”..

If you are cheerful, it will make everyone around you cheerful. Cheerful and happy people naturally attract others. Always smile and have a pleasant attitude.

Don’t give up! Stick with it, as many times as it takes. Sometimes you want to just throw in the towel and say, “I give up” but that’s the time for you t dig deep and push through. Your sincere efforts will invite a good outcome.
