Others are others, I am I. If you force your values about anything on others, it can be self righteous. don’t be overeager and have a sense of “Others are others, I am I.

Small changes can bring about a fresh outlook. Are you just living each day and getting into a rut? By making small changes in the things you do, your day to day life can become fresh and exciting

Today being a Friday and the 13th. it has the promise of being a grand day. The temperature is rising, yes there is snow, but it is not freezing cold out there, it is nice. If you can’t get out, find something to do that you’ve been putting off. I know I am not alone.. there are a lot of other people out there who thrive on enjoying the 13th when it rolls around and on a Friday!

What was will be again, never the same as it was, but it will BE.

Hiding in plain sight

You can only change yourself. Before you start telling people how they should do things, think of how you can be more flexible

Something to tuck away to look at .. later.. Mindfulness teaches that interruptive thoughts are actually very pliable and like elastic bands… we can snap them out of the way… put disruptive thoughts aside, “you can tend to them later” ( I have a drawer full of elastic bands.. all colours and sizes…just saying..) The day comes, I open up the drawer and toss them all away.. why… I forgot what they were for. =^_^= ….

Put your heart into your words. Do you tend to speak in just a matter- of -fact tone? It is important to put your heart into your words

“When you meet your friend on the roadside or in the market place, let the spirt in you move your lips and direct your tongue ” (the Prophet, Kahlil Gibran)

It is your road…

and yours alone to to walk, so much to see, so much to discover.

You will meet and walk with others along the way, but no on can walk the road for you.

Are you overdoing things? Not only do you harm yourself when you overdo things, but you may be imposing on others as well.

“Step out of the history that is holding you back… step into the new story you are willing to create.” Orpah Winfrey

oh no!

Oh No she cried.. Go away, – Come again another day…the sun isn’t up yet – Let me stay in bed – Only for a little while longer – But – the dragon’s voice grew stronger – you have things to do – You can’t just lie in bed – Why ?? Why? Why?? – She tried pulling the covers over her head – the dragon pulled back his head and blew a gentle nudge her way – There are things to do and you will be late – now be a good girl and get out of bed – She knew he was right – the dragon was always right – But dragon wasn’t finished – Close your eyes for 30 seconds… go on… do as I say… with a sigh she closed her eyes…. She felt a gentle kiss on her forehead and smiled…. – Now you can get up his quiet calming voice spoke, she felt his love and knew he would be there with her to face the day – With a smile on her face and in her heart she rose to meet the day.

Begin each day with love…

That is the dragon way….

Praying before taking action changes the outcome. Have clear wishes and do your best. Then something new will open up for you.

Today-Monday

Sometimes there is just no where to go

Make today a memorable day. Let’s try to put our whole heart into whatever we say or do, as our unique signature.

Whoa… what a “ride” the last 24 hours plus have been. However, the fog has lifted. I’m feeling human again. Sometimes we have no choice but to let the body deal with the intrusion in its own way. Certainly if it was lacking in rest, it got a lot of that in. Thank goodness for over the counter meds, i.e. Gravol and cold/flu tablets.

As you saw, I did manage to get in to cover a festival that is happening “inworld” however, I was so brain fogged, that I wrote it up on this blog instead of the virtual blog… oh well. C’est la vie… it was done.. It is one of those times when the little voice whispers.. “get over it” “move on”.

How are you doing? I finally got around to reading my e-mails and messages, thank YOU to each and everyone of you who reached out.. I appreciated your words and support.

Today I am going to try and see if I can find the turkeys and get a picture. The other day the little brats were lazing about in the P 21 parking lot.. it would have been a beautiful picture, but as soon as my car came to a stop at the end of the lot… they got off their various perches and sauntered off into the tall grasses and out of sight. No amount of sweet talk influenced them. In fact my arrival threw the raven who was visiting with them into a real temper tantrum and he began to verbally hurl his thoughts about my arrival at me. What a voice, loud and guttural, there was no missing his message or his annoyance.

Your smile can create an instant connection. A warm smile brightens everyone around you and has the power to break down barriers between people.

My smile has no effect on crows, ravens, or turkeys. just saying!

what!

You ever wonder – how did I get here?

YOU are the result of your daily efforts. Put your whole heart into everything you do in your daily life. your true self will shine through.

Maybe, you need to simplify your routine. The past couple of years have seen a lot of “changes”.. working from home, wearing face masks, your daily routines have been in some cases drastically changed, your social and work lives have been affected.. Some changes were so gradual, you didn’t notice till you ran into an “ah hah moment” Or, you made a decision that at the time seemed the right one, but now, months later, you are questioning… “why did I do that?”

Yesterday it poured, not just gentle showers, no… the sky would suddenly get dark and the rain fell “in buckets”… then yes it would drizzle, then taper off … since I was in the woods depending on where I was, there was some cover, but mostly I got wet.. Which was OK, I was dressed for it. Did I ask myself “what on earth are you doing?” No, because I saw it was a good old fashioned downpour before I left home. I can be a bit of a cracked nut.. I like the rain, even better when it is steady rain, not an angry rain, just a steady rain that falls with a rhythm that is soothing.

My rain gear was long enough that I could sit on a bench and look out over the bog… it was beautiful to hear the different sounds the rain made depending on how or where it landed. Because the vista before me was multi layered with a variety of different vegetation and I was above the bog, I looked down over trees and the bog plants. It was magical. Have you ever heard the sound of rain as it trickles down from the top of a tree with open outstretched limbs laden with leaves?

It is easy to get lost in our thoughts .. and not always look around and take in the “whole” picture, or get caught up in one aspect of a situation. When we take mini ME breaks in the day, we are able to ground or center ourselves in a positive way that will enhance our total “being”

YOU are the results of your daily efforts.

Makoto – sincerity

photo -Chris O’Keefe (N.H)

The days are getting shorter, the leaves have begun to change into their fall wardrobe. In this picture Chris caught just the perfect moment of sun/shadow… with the background architecture a perfect foil for the artistry of nature. Christopher O’Keefe is a photographer from the States who over the years has shared with us some amazing captures.

Today’s calendar speaks of sincerity, putting our hearts into our words. What struck me the most about Chris’s work is that he often captured “makoto” in his pictures.. ie. this picture for me evokes.. “sincerity”. You can almost feel the sun as the shadows shift bringing the building’s walls and windows to life.

Put your heart into your words. Do you tend to speak in just matter of fact tone? It is important to put your heart into your words.

doors

The door

transparent – sometimes

Most hide and protect what is inside from prying eyes

only if you are allowed entry do you see what is inside

even then, some settings are deceiving

well thought out and concealing

private or commercial places – to enter –

we all must pass through a door

There isn’t one day/night that at one time or another

you have gone through a door/ either to enter or leave

Do remember how many doors you encountered today?

whether at work or play, coming or going away

I’m sure you met a door today.

To visit and enjoy a grand variety of doors, please visit Dan Antion’s site, No facilities , today is the feature, Thursday Doors.. https://nofacilities.com/2022/09/01/more-from-clay-hill/

Till soon. I bid you adieu, I am opening the door to my room, its time for a nap =^_^=

thanks for sharing a “silly” with me.
