Spring yay!

To walk where no one has walked before

P1000645

I wish, =^_^= but I was the one to make a new trail

down an unused road, that led me to another time

P1000643

a family home, once filled with laughter

now stands silent, waiting

this was not the structure tho’ that had caught my attention

rather I was drawn to a building that called out

to my searching ” eyes”

P1000641

“look, look, see my charm”, I got a picture in full sunlight

but this one with the little building half in the shade

I found had more to say

I sensed this is where the children played

on rainy days, on sunny days

this little structure captured and ignited

their imagination in every way

P1000659

this pretty face

was also part of yesterday =^_^=

It was an amazing day !!!

In PL (Perfect Liberty) we do our best to live each day doing our best to be creative in every way.  Make every day count, rain, snow, sunshine, it doesn’t matter. Do your best every day.

soft sensations

 

by darren SF area 2015

sea shapes that captivate

under water, far from the world above

lives a world of wonder

captured by a lens

so that we can know  the beauty

that is not always seen

but is there non-the-less

faith is unseen

but is the strength and fiber

of our BEING

PL Precept # 11   Always be with God

LOVE unconditional and pure =GOD

being true

skyline-march-2-17

Being true to one’s self – and trying to fit in to what the traditions and customs of others might be, can be a challenge.  A simple conversation between son and parent can be very enlightening.  Whether we are aware of it or not, what we say, how we say it can impact on someone else, and we may never know just how that conversation will play out over the years.  It is when one day you are chatting and the off spring says something, that resonates with you.  You react to the statement, and of course, the two of you are sympatico, you agree on the pronouncement… however, the delivery of same is coming back at you or to you in a manner that is not what you would have thought the way it could have been expressed. (“my” reaction)

Honesty IS very important, and expressing One’s true feelings and thoughts IS what is taught, but some how another important ingredient has to come into the mix. Awareness of the feelings of others, and that not everyone deals with life the way we do.

A dear friend that I share the “passion” for creativity with saw my  picture (shown above) I don’t usually name my expressions, because I find that when I do, it confines it to MY thoughts at the moment.. and limits its potential.  I could pick it up and work on it again, altho’ I seldom do that.. except I am learning.. this technique, requires working in stages because I prefer to let the medium dry on its own.  I digress.. this is not a how to on painting, when “possum” saw it, she came back with…  is this about the 7 new planets that have been discovered….   totally foreign to me, never crossed my mind, but her words, were like WOW..    oh I like… she gave me a totally different perspective with her simple “reaction” to my post to her.

All of a sudden, my expression took on new life for me.. and now when I look at it, I wonder where it came from… who did that, and what were they thinking when they did it..

A gift we all have, is the ability to communicate with others… how we interact, and how we accept, retain, and use the constant flow of information and ideas… is a wonderful, complex and amazing part of life.

We are each and every one of us, unique in our own way, appreciate and learn from the information that comes our way, and always, do your best to maintain a positive outlook.

Life is beautiful, and so are YOU.

Pl Precept # 15   All is a Mirror

My son called me a short while back, and asked me if I’d ever heard of Alan Watts. He was very serious about it, and I was totally surprised by his question.  In my mind, everyone knew Alan Watts (British philosopher best known for his interpretations and interest in Eastern philosophy)

I had learned a lot from Alan Watts, he had been one of my favourite authors, his words spoke to me, a young Taoist living in Canada where my thoughts and ways were so foreign to most around me.  Alan introduced and popularised Eastern philosophy by his writing and teachings  now I see that his lectures and talks have been transposed and are available on YouTube.  The wonders of the modern world.

For anyone interested, this is the official Alan Watts web page  Alan Watts.com

He was prolific as a writer, and speaker. One of the first to interpret Eastern wisdom for a Western Audience.  With our Church of Perfect Liberty here in Canada, at times this is how I sometimes feel, when I try to introduce and explain, that our church is a philosophy and way of life.

My son renewed my determination to work faithfully and diligently every day to bring the PL Way to North America.  World Peace is so so important to our well-being as inhabitants of this planet.

The PL teachings help us to live in a way that will encourage and help us, live a happy and peaceful, balanced life, this will radiate out from us… bringing more love and acceptance of our unique and diversified personalities and cultures, when we know and show respect, we ourselves, grow and gain from new beginnings..

We are all ONE –

know love, show love, be love.. nurture and exist in a peaceful world

original art-by Q

now is now

gelli-art-2-20-17

Sometimes, when the itch comes to put  something down, you have no idea, what it is you are wanting to “say/see”  You get out your paints, canvas or whatever it is you want to work with and you simply begin .

Through the years I have learned that what works for someone else, is not going to wonk for me.  I have to listen to what is happening “inside my head”  to believe that  my instinct will guide me to what it is I need to express.

If you write, paint, draw, crochet, knit whatever it is you do to express your creativity, if try to force the flow, you are never happy with the results.

Now is now.. I will suddenly come to a halt.. I do not want to do anything else, not at the moment anyway.. When that happens, I know to stop and step back, and allow what has happened to “talk” to me, to identify itself to me.

Photography is the same way, I can take several pictures, of the same area, or object(s) yet when I review them, more often than not, it is the one I least expected to be “the” one, that will jump out at me.

Life is the very same.. every day we are presented with a new canvas, new opportunities, tomorrow I may or may not want to revisit this piece.  Some expressions, speak to my spiritual side.. other times, I’m simply OK with the results, but I feel a satisfaction of having put colour into my thought process.

Tomorrow will be the start of another “today”… what colours will you put on your palette.

Whatever you do.. do it with a smile, put your whole heart into it.  Make the most of NOW.

Out of the night, the eyes stare down and fix on the emotion and passions of “desire” the colours shout and harmonize to dominate the midnight skies.  Fireworks in the sky …Q

PL Precept # 11     Always be with GOD

late night visitors

late-nite-fun

Good morning…. Bom dia,  Obviously the playground I posted pictures of the other day, stayed with me.

playground-rigaud-2

Remember this… There is something playful about the design, I’m not usually drawn to bugs and the like.  Yet last night I found myself playing with the liquid acrylics and delighting in watching the shapes take shape.

If asked to do something whimsical, I would be hard pressed to come up with something, I consider myself to be more abstract.

Oh dear am I in a philosophical mood today, let me see.. today is the 14th. hmmm Hearts and Flowers day.  I can show you my totally not dry yet heart, cuz I’m trying a new medium that takes forever to dry, like 72 hours  or more before it is totally dry and finished reacting with itself. Oh dear I can smell it, but don’t see it,  where did I put it..

wet-heart-pebeo

Sorry I didn’t crop the picture, just snapped it with the handy iPhone.  That black stuff is something I got yesterday, now I  know why the gal suggested I might prefer clear or a white.  It supposedly contains the liquid medium.  They tell us not to marry  up with your first impression of what you do cuz as it reacts with itself, what you see will change.

There is a mixture that is very liquid, called Vitrail (pebeo)  one that is ceramic, one called Fantasy Moon, and one other in the Fantasy line called Prismo.  When mixed together they all have their own way of interacting with the other.. In theory if you know what you are doing, you can create wonderful fantasy pieces.

I am very new to this product, days if that..  AND no one I know uses it.. so it is a trial and error process.  That black I got yesterday and is called relief outliner.  All this to say, Good Morning, how are you.. I’m doing fine.

Today’s PL calendar (if you need one, contact me) says…      Work Happily with Good Rhythm        can you hear me humming =^_^=
