O estado de alerta entusiasma       Calendario PL  #15

Being attentive makes life more enjoyable

Seja algo trivial ou grandioso, viva dando atencao a todos os detalhes.  Isso gera bem-estar.

Live life paying careful attention to every detail, be it big or small.  By doing so, you will be able to experience the subtle joy of things.


Some dreams never get completed

others fade into distant memories

when we live in the now

every moment is a dream come true

crossing the road

Africa - Leopard tortoise

leopard  tortoise meandering along on his/her way, likely oblivious to the spectators following his journey.  It’s intent is to get to where it is going.

In the pouring rain today, sirens could be heard coming from different directions as I made my way across the city.  It was a constant downpour, so I wasn’t hurrying. I simply pointed myself in the direction I was headed, and followed the traffic in front of me, mindful of the speed limits and the traffic lights.

From the news this evening, I learned that in the early part of the day, there had been a lot of accidents with cars, trucks school buses going off the road and highways  due to the slippery conditions.  The usual pictures of vehicles in the ditch and the complaining that the darn weather was the cause of everything that happened.

I, like the tortoise accept that we live on this beautiful multi-facetted planet.. .. we are responsible for our actions. When one foot goes in front of the other, or a direction is taken, we are moving, it is me, myself and I  making the choices that move me through the day.

It is not the weather that had me leave the house without an umbrella, it was a choice I made to leave without one.  If I am walking along the road and it is so wet that the puddles are like small lakes, I have to know that a car could go by and I will be drenched.  It is not the car’s fault if I do get splashed.  That’s life.

Does that sound callous, I don’t mean to, it is just that life is what it is, and wet weather is part of living on this earth.  Winter in some countries means, snow, cooler weather, and slippery roads.  It is life.  If you know you have to deal with such things, why is it a surprise when winter weather  does what it does. If you have lived here for a lifetime, then, it happens every year.  It is not something new.

Happiness is a state of mind we choose to live in.  If you decide that negativity is all you see around you, then perhaps you need to re-evaluate  what you do with the positives that come your way.   Because positives are out there.

When we are able to have a thankful attitude, when we appreciate what we have and not dwell on what we don’t have, our perspective on life will change.  We will grow as individuals.  Our lives will move in a positive direction.

The 21st of each month, is Thanksgiving in PL (Perfect Liberty) – Let us be thankful for all the blessings we have received this past month.  Giving thanks, and showing appreciation, we move forward into tomorrow. Hearts open to unconditional love.








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 =^_^=


PL calendar # 23  Appreciate our differences

Appreciate the colourful personalities of the people around you

and enjoy their uniqueness to the fullest.




shades of gray


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!

looking back 2017

endings, beginnings

always another day

reality, there is only now

always is

this very moment




PL Principle # 1_edited-1

words we say,

we can never take back

once spoken

they linger

time may erase the pain

but, long after

the scars remain

TRUE love given

no matter the distance

will remain true

 and, should there be pain

pure love will see us through

words can lie

real love is felt

often unsaid

yet the bond transcends

above and beyond

always and forever

today, tomorrow and always


no more, no less
