new card, new day

cat card 1.22Sassy cat

came by to chat

look your cherries are dripping, I say

go away, she purrs

they are ripe and oozing bling

ah, never knew cherries to bling

that is because she purrs

you are a bee

and you sting

what could I say

I am made this way =^_^=

shades of gray

IMG_0104

stark, cloudy, bleak, no, not bleak, just gray

what is there to say

the water looks dark, cold and uninviting

no need to test it with my toe

by the time I walk across the snow-covered grounds

my feet and toes will  no longer be cozy warm

I think I will pass, and not go near the water’s edge

that is something I can do on another day

meanwhile I will view from afar

the far away shoreline, before

I head back, following the path that I’ve taken

back to the truck.

Not really exciting, but refreshing, yes.

A winter’s day, shown in shades of gray

I found some colour to brighten the gray

I will come back another day

We are heading into a storm

for winter, this is the norm

after all this is Canada eh!

              David Bowie on roller skates————————————-     Roller disco dancing

Another time another place.  I loved roller skating to music, feeling the beat, and if you had someone to skate with,  you could waltz and two-step doing some pretty fancy stuff. I believe the David Bowie advert, was for a big disco roller event in Australia.  I didn’t get to Australia to strut my stuff, but I did head for the board walk in California along the ocean.  Such exhilarating times, you met others with the same interest and you got to chat and just hang out.

Now I’m told, social interaction is not allowed or thought to be a safe thing to do.  When out at gatherings, or in parks, it is advised to stay in pairs, and not talk to strangers.  I hear on the radio and television news broadcasts, always about shootings, robberies, and lately, accidents due to people texting or answering their cell phones.

It is common to show movies and have television series(s) that include violence, abduction, shootings and fights.    And we wonder why there is a rise in gun shootings, stabbings and gang violence ?? Really?

Lately here, there is a hue and cry about the legalization of marijuana as if it has suddenly thrust itself on our society,  ?????????? to my knowledge it was around long  long before my time, and I’ve been around for a while.

There is a spoke missing in the wheel of “common sense” it seems to be all about stirring up rather than bringing peace or a state of calm.  When it appears that the media, the box office – entertainment (movies)  is always after sensational, or totally outlandish behaviours to bring in the monies or “ratings”

I don’t know readers.. as one cartoon character used to say  “thatttttttsss all folks”

banana's in PJs Feb.2017 AustraliaEl momento en que percibs es la oportunidad

A chance esta no momento e que se percebe

The moment you notice is the best timing

Procrastinating will only weigh you down.  The best time to do something is when you notice it.  You will feel lighter both physically and spiritually.   (PL Calendar # 19)

Each section represents a challenge or opportunity.  Is there a storyline  here, for me there is.  What about you…

As another year draws to an end, a new one is waiting in the wings.  The above will still be there, waiting to be found.  Every day, something new is added to our personal collage.  Some noticed, some not.  Never-the-less, seen or not, they become part of the puzzle that is “life”

Pictures do tell a story..

PL Precept #1   Life IS Art

sadness

fesrival winds bondi beach

look at the sad face

soon he’ll be soaring above the clouds

but at this moment, he looks so sad..

for a fleeting moment

a memory pierced my heart

a wink, a blink of an eye

a treasured moment

flashes before unsuspecting eyes

the colour of blue,

a bluejay’s call

transports your heart

to another port of call

the sad dog will soon fly

or could it be, he has just returned

from playing in the clouds

an emotion waits in the wings

tomorrow is another day

precious puppy will you stay

or will the winds

lift and carry you away

I will pray

God will keep you safe

and take the sadness away

PL Precept #1 Life is Art

Sydney Australia

A beautiful capture by Hillwalker (Darren Su)(Sydney Australia)

Life is about sharing, not able to see the vistas that Darren does in his travels, I enjoy his view of the world he visits and lives in. No two people will view the same sunset or sunrise the same way. It is always fascinating to see the world through the eyes of another.

Be open to new discoveries, as bloggers we are blessed with this opportunity many days in one given day.  I have discovered worlds and pieces of it, in so many ways, by sharing with fellow bloggers and readers.  You all participate in my world.  Thank you!!!

Give thanks and appreciation to all those that come your way today.

birthdays =^_^=

hwy 43 9.16.17b

LOL.. no getting away from you is there. You are all so super fantastic.. No way you gonna let me forget it is my birthday. I wasn’t running away from it, really I wasn’t. I woke up and found that I’d lots of visits overnight. It was actually really pleasant to wake up and see that so many of you had dropped in.

hwy 43 9.16.17e

So many of you have traveled through the years with me, always there with your smiles and friendships.  How many times have I hollered out.. HELP  I’m stuck… it could be late in the night for you, and mid afternoon for me.. Always, if you are around, help is to be had.   I am so truly blessed.

The colours of fall have started to appear as you see in one of the pictures.  Friends, are blessings I believe that. Even tho’ with the technology today (internet) we are able to reach out almost anytime… We don’t always get the chance, or think to do it, our day to day passes by on us too quickly.

Like the seasons, I am changing, my life takes new directions, doors open that I wasn’t expecting, opportunities that I hadn’t expected, drop in, and like nature, I accept and find creative ways to deal with the landscapes before me.

Hwy 43 Alexandria 9.16.17d

Always precious friends, I know that along the shorelines of my life, a friend is there.  Thank you .. thank you, thank you…. each one of you helps me, live a life that is more complete, because you share this world with me.

Another year to mark off on the calendar…  sigh… means I’m wiser, yes!
