Where am I

Caught between two worlds.

Frozen in Time

The turning Point is Now. Life is a sequence of moments called now. you have the key to turn yourself around.

Wander happily through the open landscape, enjoy the clear blue skies.. today is another day!

Make happiness with willingness. People who like to make an effort can enjoy anything. Those who spare no effort for anything and anyone know the joy of making art. Make an effort with willingness.

Whoa Slow Down

Remember the rabbit in Alice in wonderland.. ” I’m late.. I’m late… for a very important date!” Is this YOU. Sometimes it is me, and duh… I’m retired… yet I still have moments of “OMG look at the time” and I know that the wildlife and other critters don’t have watches. I stopped wearing a watch years ago. Curious, do you still wear a watch?

Being asked for a favour is a chance. When someone as for a favour from you this is a chance for you to help others. Face the chance proactively.

When we spend our time rushing from one task/obligation to another, & we seem to be constantly on the go – when do we/you/I slow down, when do we actually regroup, recharge, reenergize?

Let’s find the secret door to a private hide away

Today is your lucky day, it is Thursday Doors, you can visit Dan’s No Facilities site to explore just which door you can disappear through… for your fantasy retreat. But.. remember, it is a visit, you still have to come back to deal with your everyday “stuff” https://nofacilities.com/2023/02/23/wor-union-station-grand-hall/

doors open in/out

Make the best use of materials and money. you can do different things as materials and money play their roles. How to make them work is important.

Today being Thursday I pulled some photos of doorways that I hope will give you pause for a moment. Which way you go through the doors, will make a difference. Will you be going through them .. to go in… or to leave… Depending on how you encounter some doors, what their purpose will be to you in your life… will certainly give pause for thought.

Same applies to how we view the opportunities/challenges that come our way.

Start by doing the things you notice. it is impossible to do two things at once. Let your intuition guide you and start with what you can take on now.

This being Thursday, you can click on the above link it will take you to Dan’s No Facilities site and the post this week on doors.

The wonderful pictures showing doors in an ambience that demonstrates the thought I am presenting for you to ponder today were taken by Ian Mitchell (photographer/traveler) on one of their (family) holiday destinations.

Thank you dear friends, without you in my life… life would be so boring. I appreciate each and every one of you Near or far, you are beautiful energies. Oyashikiri

Wednesday 15th.

The key to solving problems is within you. The problem that appears before you can surely be solved. Give it your best effort and the answers will come to you as long as you remain strong in your conviction that all will turn out well.

Mon. 13th.

Kevin Baldelli is a nature photographer who I met several years back, who has moved from still photography to getting pictures of the animals in their natural environment. He has put together clips from his films taken in 2022. Thought you might enjoy spending some time with the animals in their habitat. This is the link to the video I’ve taken a screen shot from. https://youtu.be/cs3ZsPL6KkE

View your difficulties as a chance to make rapid progress. You grow by overcoming the obstacles in front of you, one by one, look at your problems as opportunities for growth and make the best of your situation.

Others are others … I am I. If you force your values about anything on others, it can be self-righteous. don’t be overeager and haves a sense of “others are others. I am I”

In life we face many challenges. Yesterday I started out with my usual routine, I went into the woods to feed the birds.. enjoyed the fresh air, the time with the wildlife and headed back into the city to attend a service at church. Two of my fellow hokyoshi’s are back in Brazil for a holiday, even though I had been in on Saturday I thought to go in and make sure all was well. It was a lovely sunny day, I had time to make a stop at the Asian supermarket, so I did a quick in and out (only place I know I can get my garlic stems)… On leaving I saw the door to the Time Foot Bar was open http://www.timefootbar.ca/

Need I say more…. I went in for a reflexology session, I didn’t think much about it, I drove over to that end of the parking lot, got out, walked in, and…… the rest is history … I did not go to church … I booked a session, fell into a light sleep while there, left. came home and went to bed. Sometimes the best laid plans go awry …. the rest of the day was spent in a bit of a trance.. I had not ambition to do anything, not even watch the telly. When the body needs to relax, it reaches a point of no return… and I had hit the zone. I did go out and try to clear some more snow off the deck.. so I got more fresh air.. but then I came back in… and you guessed it… my need took me back to bed. I listened to a Simon Brett talking book and slept again.

I could beat myself up for missing church. But that is not the PL WAY. I obviously needed the “time out” … Sometimes we have to listen to our “inner voice” if we continue to force activity when we are overtired, overextended, we suffer the consequences. Be honest with yourself, when was the last time you did something called “nothing”


Do you like being on your own, can you remember when the last time was you did something for no reason at all but because you felt like it…….

bird in flight

Everyone has their own way of seeing and thinking. There are different points of view and ways of thinking, which make it interesting and creates new ideas. try to enjoy others’ expressions.

Life is a buffet of moments. WE decide how much, how little effort, we put into being happy.

Make happiness with willingness. People who like to make an effort can enjoy anything. Those who spare no effort for anything and anyone know the joy of making art. Make an effort with willingness.

yes, more snow! Hello!


There is something so magical about watching the sun make its appearance . A brand new day. New beginning, a fresh perspective, how wonderful the moment is when you see it between the trees teasing and tempting. There is no way I can ignore the majesty of it all.

There isn’t another car in sight, I slow down, looking for that perfect moment to stop the car… of course when I get out of the car, my view is different, and I have to walk around the car and walk up or back down the road to see if I can catch the glowing ball of fire before it drifts out of my sight.

The birds are quiet today, ok, well not all of them, the nuthatch are not carrying on, but the Jays are being absolutely silly. I’ve spoiled them, usually as soon as I get out of the car, I throw out handfuls of peanuts in a shell. LOL … now they expect it.. The evening grosbeaks are being patient, I can hear one or two of them begin their song. But… I’m still focused on getting a picture… which I did.. and only then did I dutifully go tend my charges.

Get things started with Grit. If you work on things in daily life with the attitude of “let’s do it!” you will feel a power to accomplish things. People around you will rely on you.

I have been tired a lot of late. So much so, it has been a bit of a worry. YET the Vitamines D and B the magnesium and and and.. that were recommended sit on my counter. Not being opened or used. What is it with me (part of me) anyway! What I have been doing, is still cleaning up (per Chinese New Year tradition) and yesterday…. finally…. I took out the “brasso” (cleaner) and cleaned my prayer bowls.

Little steps right….

Oyashikiri -love, gratitude and appreciation everyone.. there is no me without you.


Snow, blowing snow, high winds, visibility is not good, roads are not all cleared, the cold temperatures means that under the fresh snow is the possibility of black ice, there are hidden dangers out there.

The path to achievement is “to start with what you can do” try to find out what you an do towards challenges in your own situation. This will pave the way for achievement.
