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..

when white is the colour of the day

choice – spend time outside or inside
snow is pristine and beautiful against the contrasting bark on the trees

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 !!!

photo art, a dark dream

it was a dream…………….. a black dream………………….

I had gone to a club called Dark Alley Blues.

No one was there, except the washed out and passed out derelicts in the darkened alleys

Had I gotten the date and times wrong

There were no identifiable sounds coming from the club

Doors were barred, windows dark

my mind caught the stark neon light that flashed off and on

I wanted to escape, to run away,

Why wasn’t I waking up, what held me back

Can I trust the rabbit who came out of the dark to hold my hand?

There is always a solution. Always believe that there is a solution to any problem that comes your way, and work with conviction to solve it.

I felt totally out of place. Somehow I knew this was not where I should be….

But… life happens that way…. it is what it is..

can you see me?

Can you see me

I am so close, so real

I know you look at me … but do you really see me

your wall has been built to withstand and keep away

any real feelings that come your way

you look at me ….. but…. can you see me

look carefully, I am here, what you see is real

no wall or past memories can erase the fact

I’m here, and here I’ll stay

one day, you’ll wake and find there is no other way

there is no going back

life is what it is …

a bloom for you

with snow falling, I wanted to share an exotic bloom with you..

Be very careful about doing things you really like. do everything in moderation. When you overdo, you will lose your balance.

Handle things that come your way one by one. Tackle your issues in the order they appear in front of you. You will be able to get things done more efficiently this way.

Xmas surprise

Action figure Pennywise from the Stephen King movie It

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 =^_^=…

Happy Jolly 25th.

Yup… its that time again… won’t be long, just gotta wait it out. tick tock.

nothing to do but wait it out….
you get the feeling we might be awhile
that won’t get us anywhere fast
Right this is 2020, and its the 25th.

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.

22nd

He waited, until he could wait no more….

then quietly he turned and walked away….

now, was not the time

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.

How far are you willing to travel in your journey, is there a limit, have you a goal? Are you open to what is around the bend.? It is the journey itself that counts!

new beginnings

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.

a day for reflection

we give thanks this day for our daily “bread”

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.
