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..
I wrote this back in the late 70’s… found it today while looking for something else.
Freedom is – a state of mind
Through each moment of the day
We experience, joy, happiness, sadness, anticipation and frustrations.
Emotions, are part of our core
With each breath comes an emotion
How we cope and accept, encounters and interactions with others…
is how much freedom we allow ourselves …
in our journey through life.
To see fragments of life shatter before you
in a glittering array – transcending joy
a new dawning.
thoughts taken from a page of a book I’d stored visual artwork and thoughts such as the above.
It is interesting to see how I captured my thoughts then, & to reflect on them, I think I still see life much the same way… will have to give it more thought though,
I like the contrast of the snow and the quiet moment of reflection in my beach house .. in the virtual world, the weather is always comfortable no matter where we visit, or the terrain we travel. In this world of constant change, we are gifted with new adventures and back drops for our “stories” and “travels”… the newness, the constant discoveries of what IS… makes for a world of wonder. Ours to discover !!!
What a hoot. My whole theme this year was action figures and personalities from the world of adventure and super powers. I had not said a word about what I was doing.. so imagine my surprise and delight when I opened my nephews gift to find Pennywise staring back at me. You all know how in September I start gearing up for my creative month of October.. my FUN month. The unexpected is always such a “wow”.
If Santa came your way overnight, and was anywhere where the rain was, he would have been one wet Santa. The rain princess was not happy about having to perform “off season” her performance, at least here in this area, was full all out staccato, it was as if she said, “you want rain, I’ll give you rain” and then just lashed out.
This morning all is calm, not bright, but quiet and very wet. Still very mild too. What I noticed was that the little evergreen that has been sitting there all summer just “sitting”.. seems to have sprouted approx. 12 inches. I hadn’t noticed before. Could be because much of the accumulated snow has been washed away. Whatever, she looks happier. She obviously loved the rain, its perked her up.
From one happy little tree at our house, to everyone out there who is sharing this moment with us, we wish you a very happy and merry Christmas Day.
“To every cloud there is a silver lining” someone said that.. I believe it to be true.
LET’S FIND THE JOY IN EVERYTHING.
PS. I have been up making dumplings for my son’s lunch, and I’m going to cook turkey and his favourite sausages to go with the dumplings, … I know he should visit more often right =^_^= so… to my friend Bonnie, no I won’t be eating out of a can today =^_^=…
Yup… its that time again… won’t be long, just gotta wait it out. tick tock.
Let’s find the JOY in everything. Are you looking for thins to complain about? Let’s change our perspective and live a cheerful and joyful life.

A little fun in the wee hours, however, my wish is that you have the most stunning day ever. Whatever, where-ever live the moment, cherish the day. Reach out and share a smile, make a phone call, say Thank YOU. I am grateful, I say it to you time and time again, … you bring much into my life. Distance is an illusion when it comes to “friendships”.. in this age of “internet” we have discovered ways to share thoughts, visions, stories, and .. list is endless, we have much to be thankful for.
Enjoy, find and do what makes you happy! Make memories.
the day would come when the opportunity would come again…
maybe then, the wait would not be in vain
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.

Words once said, are hard to take back. Think before you rush into speech. Listen to what is said, assimilate, take it in. Change is the only constant. the intensity of a moment, can change in a heart beat.
Turn your intuitions into actions. appreciate each intuition you receive and take action right away. By doing so will invite good fortune.
The plows had not been by, driving was slow, one car had been down the road earlier in the day, closer to one of the main roads there had been perhaps, two, three sets of tracks leading out… but going towards the conservation area, it was only the one set of tracks leading into the woodlands. I wondered who else had make this journey, guess I would know the answer when I arrived at my destination.
This little fellow was just two arm lengths away, he was not concerned with anything but getting at his feed. I stood as still as I could, I wanted the birds to continue to dine. Not one but two blue jays almost landed on me. I was thrilled beyond words to have them so close*. Off to my right I saw the red cardinal patiently waiting to see what I would do, and for the opportunity to swoop in .. the little chicks off course, were flying in and out they are daily visitors to this area…
I have been spoken to about driving out during a snowfall, to an area that is off the main roadways. I truly appreciate and am grateful that there is concern. On the drive, I kept telling myself, I should consider getting special tires for such excursions. Then the other voice, asked how often I planned on doing such activity. =^_^= there is always a voice of reason within our heads..
The quiet solitude of the morning, the happy greeting from the birds, their enjoyment of the seeds, the moment of acceptance of my presence. This for me is so rewarding, so satisfying. I trust in God that my activities will be guided. I believe that one is meant to do what they are called on to do. Sometimes, it means going out of my way, sometimes, it means being very diligent and careful in how I do something. BUT do it I will. Why, because life is to enjoy, to live,
I do not want to put anyone else in danger, or ask that they do what I do.. but when the objective is to be with and in nature.. to enjoy the open space, feel the land around me, it is like a meditation in movement, it is a communication with the Universe
By the time I was ready to leave and head back, I noticed there were two other cars besides mine and the first car in the parking area. =^_^= I am not alone in my search for PEACE and ONENESS with the UNIVERSE.
I wonder if I still have my snowshoes.. must go look, and also.. reminder.. put a small shovel in the trunk of the car.
Happy American Thanksgiving, enjoy your day however you decide to live it. Be SAFE, be Happy .. stay focused.. live with PEACE in your heart.
