Finally, there you are.  I’ve missed my dates with  Norm 2.0   (click link to visit more doors)  .. it was bug infested trek but I persisted!!  I was the  buffet!!

Vicinity Stagecoach and Old snake island road, ON.Canada

past, present NOW

Quiet picturesque little lane that takes one down to the Seaway.  Old and new stand along the shoreline.  What was, will no longer be.We face this every day.  For the last many days I have not had a computer, I have learned from trial and error, that a laptop is not the way I like to fly.  Handy they may be, but for what I want and need (feel I need) is to be back on a desktop.  I would only come to this having made previous decisions that at the time, seemed necessary change.

One learns in life, that choices made at one time, may not always be what we most prefer, some we can easily change, others not so easily.  Some are impossible to change and go back to.  For example.  every time one changes our hardware (for working on the internet) the newer improved technology is one we have to readjust to.

Recently a display I had made in my garden, was vandalized. A grandparent thought it was ok to give his granddaughter a display doll that I had put out of reach of little arms. I am a doll collector and doll artist, the display was put well out of reach, it was high on a wall, and behind a big rain barrel.  Getting at it, meant one had to reach over and be tall enough to get at the doll.

It has been interesting to hear the comments when I retell this little story to friends, one even scoffed and told me it was only a thing.  I wondered how he would have felt had I gone into his well tended and beautiful garden and began trying to move his plants around because I felt that the roses should be next to a bee balm plant.  OR decided his lowers were so beautiful, I should just pick them and bring them to a friend who loves flowers.

Is consideration of other’s property a thing of the past, is the ability to recognize that rearranging a display in another space other than your own, is OK.  ???

All things, deserve respect, your car that gets you to where you need to be, the doors that open for us to enter, the shoreline that contains are precious rivers, lakes and oceans.  As an artist I don’t expect everyone to like my style of expression,  but I do expect RESPECT for my property if you are on it. I now understand why people put up DO NOT ENTER or PRIVATE PROPERTY up on their lands

(sorry took off  on a little rant there)  however it is all the same message.  Changes happen in life, some we can make choices on, and they affect us directly, others it is not as easy.

PL calendar day 29   Use what you need to use without hesitation. 

YOUR things, your money, your knowledge, and your strengths are all a part of you.  Utilize them to their fullest potential without any hesitation.

boys and Pearl

Finally she gets to rest, and the boys want to play.  Will she give in, or chase them away? Choices, there is no getting away, they are part of every day!

PL Calendar day  27    Let’s interact proactively with an every changing society.

Society is always rapidly changing with the times.  Keep your eyes and mind in tune with these changes and learn to deal with them proactively.

Thursday doors

Good Morning, these are the doors I found yesterday in my travels. No concrete cement sidewalks, no asphalt driveways, open space and  blue skies were the order of the day.

PL Calendar day 25 –   Pay Careful Attention without Overly Straining yourself or Taking things too lightly

Having the right amount of tension in your life allows you to notice many things, and that will help you to better express yourself.

February 14, Valentine’s day – that works for some, for others not as much.  Some years we stand alone in a universe totally different from our own.  To all around, we look the same, but something is happening to us within.  There are no words, no rhyme, just fragmented time.

Perfect Liberty calendar, day 14

Being considerate of others is just as important as what works for you

Always be mindful of the situations of others, not just your own.  To have a good relationship with those around you, always think of what is important to them too.
