This was how I defined myself back in the 70’s and 80’s when I was marketing my “works” (expressions, via canvas and acrylics) My name in Chinese translates to Goddess of the Moon, I have used Moon or Dymoon in my work since forever.

A “Moon” for all seasons. (called my sculptures, canvas expressions, musings, Moon)

Travel thru fantasy and life – Capture the spirit of imagination – Ride the winds of time -enjoy an original “Moon”

Transcend illusions of today.

Realize the truth in reality – a subject, is object, only…… when perceived.

Focus but for a second

Tune in on the moment – Collide with tranquility – calm and serene – You’ve found cosmic peace.

I found one of my old business cards, the first part of the above was on the back of my card. I also used the Chinese writing of my name on the card. You can see I’m still going through the old binder I found with past writings and pictures of the “expressions”

How interesting to see, read and take in what was..

can you see me?

Can you see me

I am so close, so real

I know you look at me … but do you really see me

your wall has been built to withstand and keep away

any real feelings that come your way

you look at me ….. but…. can you see me

look carefully, I am here, what you see is real

no wall or past memories can erase the fact

I’m here, and here I’ll stay

one day, you’ll wake and find there is no other way

there is no going back

life is what it is …

Sunday 27th

Breakfast companion
this little guy is smaller, making his way to the suet on the left.

I’m finding great comfort in spending time with the birds. I’ve even got my trunk set up like a cafeteria, every-thing ready for me to access when I get to the feeding areas. Some days it is just too cold to be fiddling with seed bags that are still factory sealed, Or get to the suet blocks that are still in their retail packaging.

I have been eyeing some of the cameras and the special lens attachments that the serious cameramen are toting. So far I’ve only gotten to the stage where I am making enquiries .. and talking to them about their equipment. The reality at the moment is that by the time I get to the feeders, asses what needs to be replaced, fill and relocate feeder trays etc. I’m usually dealing with frozen fingers.

Live radiantly as the sun. Strive to always be bright and cheerful so you can enliven those around you.

Today

Today, it was cold, damp and gray

what a wonderful day for a visit to the park

after all, with it being so brisk,

there would be little risk of finding a crowd

I bundled up, filling my pockets with roasted squash seeds

Didn’t take long before I made a new friend =^_^=

who couldn’t contain her happiness at her good fortune, so it wasn’t long

before I had several other chicks singing along …. two beautiful blue jays joined in, they truly made me feel like I belonged …

Dark menacing clouds soon began to push aside the sunnier skies, the wind that had been merrily drifting along beside me, began to pick up speed, nudging me back towards my car. The temperature dropped, icy chill seeped through my jacket, till I no longer felt like I wanted to stay.

The ornamental grass waved goodbye as I sped away. They know I will return on another day.

PL Precept #18 Each moment is a Turning Point!

little tree

A little tree sits on the forest floor

her friend the stump is being a bore

she dreams of growing tall

so she can be the belle of the Xmas ball

he reminds her that when the snow comes

she won’t be seen at all….

Everyone knows someone like her friend the stump

always ready to pounce on dreams

what a chump!

Fortunately she knows her worth,

the snow will keep her warm and safe during the winter months

she knows next spring, she will continue to grow

and the chump, Mr. stump will still be just that

a stunted lump of wood being over run

by the growth on the forest floor.

She smiles, in time, she will be able to shield and protect him

from the blazing sun, then he will know,

she will be his one true friend till the end.

Never loose sight of how much potential you have

don’t be content with the status quo,

for when you pray and believe in yourself

Your spirit will grow =^_^=

time is on your side, when we allow life to move us along

in the natural rhythm(s) of the Universe,

one step at a time, from one season to another

our roots will be deeply entrenched in solid ground

our branches will reach up high into the sky

and, and, we will live on forever….

isn’t “and” a wonderful word…

Q

Saturday 7th

Today I am a tree, I stand here before you for all to see

My years of standing in one place has meant that I have a lot of memories

of what was, and can ponder on what will be

I know that as the seasons come and go, my history

is in plain view for all to see

my wounds have healed, and many of my arms have been broken

or been taken from me, yet I am patient for I know

that with the passing of time I will return to the earth/ Universe

Meanwhile, I will stand and wait for someone to notice me

I was strong and beautiful in my youth, my outer body is now

textured, my open wounds portraits of my many experiences

I salute you dear friend as you pass by and give thanks

that you did come by to spend time in my garden, my patch on this Universe.

May many blessings of the day shower your life with joy and happiness

Please come again, there may be less of my physical self,

but, always, my spirit will be here to greet you.

evergreen

Good relationships begin by greeting each other. Acts of respect and courtesy are reflections of how much we value others. Make it a point to be the first to greet your family, people t work and around the neighborhood.

Work well with everyone regardless of their age or position. the opinions of those who are younger may lead to new solutions, and we can always learn from the accumulated experiences of our elders.

A walk in nature today, kept life in perspective. Fresh air was invigorating! See you all in dreamland. =^_^= Life is Good!!

a tree

stood alone
but not on its own
a cow on its own
but not alone

With the wind and rain of yesterday, already, many of the trees are bare.. When cows lie down (said me Mom) “its going to rain” Rain it did, it poured, it pelted the car windows, it filled the gutters, it washed away the dust and grime, leaves fluttered to the ground, it was a wet new world all around.

Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.

Thomas Edison

A pessimist makes difficulties of his opportunities; an optimist makes opportunities of his difficulties.

Harry Truman

The teacher who is indeed wise doe snot bid you to enter the house of his wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind.

Kahil Gibran

You will find joy when you immerse yourself in your task. when you face your tasks with a can do attitude, you will be filled with enthusiasm and inspiration.

shades of yesterday

When yesterday fades, only a memory remains

With the light of a new day

Comes the realization that come what may

I will never hear your voice again,

or catch you smile from across the room

when you notice that I’ve arrived home safe

Yesterday, forever seemed so far away

But when you took your last breath, those many months ago

I had no choice but to let you go to your final resting place

and now….. now I search in the changing colours of the autumn leaves

for the happiness we shared, as we crossed the miles of countryside

for Mother Nature’s fall palette of golden yellows, rusted orange and reds,

oh how we rejoiced, laughing and sharing in her glorious showcase of colours that shone in the sunlight, bright golds, bronze and tattered greens

the bark on the trees, changing with the shadows as the sun drifted across the autumn skies. Gnarled knots and open wounds showed off their textures on the aging trees, while the young saplings did their best to show they were full of promise.

Life does go on, and we did vow, we would love with no regrets,

I have no regrets … you are here in every colour Mother Nature puts on display

Love is pure and love is true, when you accept that love is here to stay.

Today was spent …missing you.

Q

Always work to heighten your “inner sensitivity” Your life will take on greater dimensions when you are able to perceive your surroundings with more sensitivity. Let’s continue to learn and add to our knowledge and experience, and cultivate a fresh sense of beauty.
