maudlin

photo Dave Renz (day 68)

Yuppers today I woke up with a maudlin mind. My thoughts travelled down roads, through valleys and dales that well…just brought tears that needed to be expressed. Crying doesn’t mean I’m unhappy, it means I am reliving a series of events that tugged at my heart strings.

I talk to you all about love all the time. Love is forever moments that live on in the energy field that is me, myself and I. Crying is cleansing, to allow a tear drop to fall is to allow the sunshine in on a sunny day.

music,singers,song writers, story tellers, what a beautiful world we live in

There will always be a way. If you persist and be creative without giving up, you will find solutions that you had not considered before.

Now I’m off to exercise, walk my many steps, and move. How about you! step, step, step, exercise your brain, your body, your everything. Life is for living.

when privacy eludes us

the rudeness of some humans

There are days when getting back under the covers seems to be the best course of action .. however, there is always someone in the “crowd” that has different ideas.

With the sun making its early morning appearance, comes the moment when the human decides its time to get up. Does that mean we have to do likewise? Guess it does. The promise is for very hot and humid weather today.. meaning. .. an early morning “walk/run”

Use things for what they are meant for. Everything has a purpose. Let’s use things to their fullest potential.

The reward is often in the taking of the risk, or stepping out into the day. Wake up and live each moment of your day.

a memory

photo by Dave Renz

The above picture immediately reminded of a dream I had years ago. Yes the picture took me back to a hike that my Mother had organized when she was a leader in CGIT, (Canadian Girls in Training) My Dad had come with us to share in the experience and take pictures. Taking pictures was his passion, this picture is much like the interpretation of the moment, he would have shared,

Canadian Girls in Training, or CGIT, is a church-based program for girls and young women aged 11–17 throughout Canada.[1] Girls who join the CGIT vow to “Cherish Health, Seek Truth, Know God, Serve Others and thus, with [Jesus’] help, become the girl God would have me be”. (Wikipedia)

My education began at an early age (to be of service, and dedicate my life to helping and being there for others) I don’t know why Dave chose to publish the photo in these muted tones, but he did and for me it was breath taking. I wanted to share this picture of his for two reason.. one because I found it to be so touching and poignant. And 2, I feel it will “talk” to others in a way, words can’t.

Good or Bad it is your mirror. Sincere expressions invite good results, but insincere expressions can lead to unexpected trouble.

Your willingness to learn will make you shine even brighter. As long as you are motivated to learn more, you will continue to progress in life.

will the circle be

broken, or … roll into eternity
once there was a strong bond
that with years of wear and tear compressed into
a band of steel so tight,so unyielding that
when time began to erode the composition
the reason for its existence started to fade
only the inner knowledge that once the fire that had forged that band
was slipping away. Soon when the dust returns to dust
the band of gold that once shone with meaning
will disappear .. into the eternity of time and space
and we will no longer be, you will be free
you always were you know
cages are created by the human mind
sadly when love is caged, it dies.
be free, love again
this time .. it will be forever. Q

Be thankful to your parents and to your ancestors. You are here today because the “torch of life” has been continuously passed down. always remember to be thankful.

Remain true to yourself… never be afraid to express your true feelings.

new beginnings

The everyday things you do will show when it really counts. If you have a tendency to be careless about everyday matters, you cannot expect to perform well at crucial times.

Sometimes the pieces of your life will fall smoothly into place. Even so, there is an edge to every piece of the puzzle, how it fits, can be seamless, so that you really barely know that it was an individual piece .. now that it is placed it becomes part of a greater/bigger picture. Yet within the picture it will always be one piece of a whole, and that whole will have its own edges.

Are you a person who likes the safety of being part of the puzzle, or do you want to be the puzzle.

May 2

The early morning sunlight was just out of reach as we rounded the bend. The soothing sound of the spring run off making its way to the river is a melody I hope will never end.

With the morning stretching into noon, I thought of turning around, but somehow, I found myself lingering. You’ve fed my need for make believe & replaced my dreams with reality. This has opened up my senses to the awakening energies in the earth, the life force in the trees, and the texture and shapes of all of nature’s bounty.

We met and simply never parted, it was forever from the start. This is written in the wind, and sung by the sparkling waters of the stream.. Harmonizing in the background, is the sweet songs of the many birds who live in this little bit of paradise.

Here on planet earth is an oasis of love that is repeated over and over again in different vignettes all over the world. -Q-

Always think that “everything will work out” When you allow yourself to be pessimistic, your thought and actions become sluggish. Approach everything optimistically without hesitating.

You want me to what!

Sometimes, no words are needed. The stance, eyes, ears, say it all. When we look at partners, friends, family, the look might not be as obvious, but there sure is a current that crackles. There is not too much we can do about the reaction of others to our “choices” except, agree to disagree. We are individuals, life would be boring if we were all the same.

No one can take away the joy you get from putting your whole heart into something. The joy you feel when you’ve put your all into something is yours and yours alone. Nobody can take that away from you.

There is a door set in the wall – it is closed

on each side it is flanked by a window, shut tight

the moss on the cement blocks leading to the door,

suggests that the steps have been there for awhile

how many times have the window panes been kissed by the rain

just when did the house fall silent

are there finger prints on the windows, of children looking out

If I knock, will someone come to the door

The house is so small and still, I can see right through to the back door.

just waiting for some kind of response .. I feel the house shift

it has been awhile, but it can still hear echos of its former lives

it sits silently aware that for a brief moment in time, someone came to visit

standing proud, it feels good, once more it served a purpose and was rewarded with a moment of appreciation.

Old homes, buildings, fences, cars, trucks, they are reminders that life is fragile, and fleeting, now more than any other time, is not the time to squander the joys of living, the true meaning of friendships, and genuine caring and understanding of the people, communities around us.

It is important to say “thank you” Everything that appears in front of you is all material for you to improve yourself whether its food, people or things. Learn to accept everything, whether it is something you like or not.
