Sunday -strolling thru

Because (update) I had a bit of a set back yesterday, I will be off my leg for another while. I was thrilled when I saw Num had posted the above pictures, this is where I want to be.. I so much want to be back wandering the woodlands..Sooooo I am being good, and practicing patience as best I can to ensure the leg heals. My new camera is heavy, and the terrain I like to wander is on the rugged side.. current mantra is patience girl, patience.

With one thought “The world” will change. Changing your way of thinking will make a difference on how you perceive the world.

I will be doing a blog on the Sax on the Beach venue I attended (virtually) later today or tomorrow to show you some of the talent I got to see and enjoy, I will post to my Virtual news 8 blog, SEE LINK. Please subscribe to it for news on the event and other venues and entertainment news from SL (Second Life) It is an opportunity for you to enjoy and get to know about people from all over the world through their creativity and talents. All from the comfort of your home. https://virtualnws8.ca/

My friend Shirley in NZ visited the most wonderful attraction in Denniston of an old coal mine. I’m going to share some of her pictures here for you to enjoy.

Where ever you are in the world, this is a wonderful time of the year, the cooler air is exciting, it brings with it the winds of change, and therefore we have new discoveries to explore. Through the adventures of my friends who like myself like to wander and explore, through my blog I try to share with you the awesome world we live in. In Shirley’s pictures I could envision how the coalfields must have looked back when it was operational, the hive of activity, the human energy it required to function.

We (as a people) have come such a long way, the history of our past, the trials, the hardships, the joys and the new discoveries are all part of what we have to thank for, where we are today.

With the new season soon to be with us, let’s strive to be better at being open to new ideas, new possibilities, and remember to give thanks for where we have been, and the people/ancestors who paved the way for us.

With one thought “the World” will change, it begins with US.

Love you all. Till soon

Second Life is a virtual world that can be accessed from almost everywhere in the world. https://www.secondlife.com/ By now everyone knows about virtual worlds, and many of you are familiar with what an avatar is. To move around in SL, you need an avatar, but all that will be explained to you by visiting the SL (Second Life) website. If you are already in SL, then this is the venue you won’t want to miss. SAX on the Beach. https://wordpress.com/view/virtualnws8.ca

Healing

Thank you to my wonderful caring friends who have been helping me while I heal. Friendships are treasures that one can’t find with a credit card, they are priceless.

Today in PL is Appreciation Day (formerly Thanksgiving) it is celebrated on the 21st of each month. We gather for a special ceremony at the church, services are held at 7 pm.

I have much to be thankful for, I have been unable to do to much for myself these past days, i.e a simple glass of water if it was out of my reach, was a total effort to attain if I had to get up out of bed and be mobile. Time heals, and with the help of my friends, I have managed, I am so blessed. I can now move around with the crutches in a much easier fashion, at times, I manage with one if the distance is short and there is furniture I can hold on to. A stool was placed in the kitchen so once I get there I can sit, reach the fridge, micro, toaster etc. and at least manage to get something to eat on my own.

It is easy to take for granted the mobility we have, I will certainly be more aware and remember to give thanks for all of my abilities and not take them for granted from now on. Appreciation is sometimes something we give lip service to, IT IS IMPORTANT.. our abilities, talents and skills are earned and when one is taken away even for a short time, “life” changes. In PL we ask that prayers start our day and end the day.

Service tonight is at 7 pm. if you cannot attend in person, please pray from home, Give thanks for the blessings received the past month, and ask for guidance for the coming weeks.

Express your appreciation with enthusiasm. Appreciation is the driving force for progress and development.

PS- if I lived closer I would want to get a cloth and polish the chrome on the old truck.. isn’t it a beauty!

What is…

There is no rhyme or reason, it simply IS.

That is what happens, when another day begins. Take each moment as it comes.

Even on rainy days – If you get depressed if it rains, switch your mind so that you can enjoy rainy days on days when it rains. The weather doesn’t change the way you want…. but… you can change your mind.

Lesson sent from Japan, 2021.10.16
I “hear” you…

elusive

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.

Happy today to you! Share your smile!

A door to a small building that was no no longer being used

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).

coming…

When its time to eat, the clan/family gathers. There is a time of gathering, each makes his/her way to the “table”. We were not part of the dinner party, but we did get to watch as they arrived. I had stopped the car, there was such a feeling of quiet and tranquility, no city sounds, just the calling of the birds, a dog barking his/her welcome, and the ambience of the day. A perfect day in the country.

Every time we take a “day vacation” it energizes and helps put perspective on the current “state of affairs”

Have a “let’s do it” attitude. Even if a task is difficult, keep in mind it is given by God and accomplish it.

Keep your balance. A life that ignores balance will eventually lead to a deadlock. whatever you do, look at people, the environment, the state of the economy, the trend of the times , and try to express yourself properly after balancing yourself with them.

Tuesday -smile

Let’s begin today with a smile. Let’s start the day with a positive outlook, looking forward to what we can discover.

Perfect Liberty 2021.12

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.

crow teachings

This morning I took off to find the wild turkeys, instead I found a group of crows.. there were only 4 – 6 of them.. I was pleased to see them.. you know I love my crows.

There were not familiar to me. I was in a different part of the city, they kept their distance. At least with this camera I could get a little closer to them.

I love the look on this fellow. He kept his distance, but didn’t fly off after I put out a bribe or two =^_^=

Oyashikiri

Life is for living. Make each moment of our day count.. Remember it is always important to take time for YOU. Self Care these days is paramount. This is a lesson I have to pay heed to myself, we tend to sometimes overdo… Seeing the crows today, when I was expecting wild turkeys was an “ah ha” moment, at first I was disappointed, then I realized .. crows are my favourite birds, I love crows.. and here they were just waiting…. it was an opportunity to make like the willow/bamboo and go with what was presented to me… Enjoy the crows … make new friends.. everything happens for a reason.!

Though we travel. . . to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

If one advances confidently in the direction of one’s dreams, and endeavors to live the life which one has imagined, one will meet with success unexpected in common hours

Henry David Thoreau

Let’s cherish the milestones of life… There are various milestones in our lives. The entrance ceremony, graduation ceremony, wedding … these important life milestones are great opportunities to change your mind, and like bamboo, people grow up at milestones.
