I was reading a friends blog recently, he lives in Japan, and writes about the use of and the caring of good carving tools https://covingtonandsons.com/2019/10/04/sharpening-part-10-the-ura-%e6%b5%a6/ While reading his blog I was hit with the similarity of looking after one’s tools, and the maintaining of friendships. When we don’t look after our tools, they stop performing for us the way they were intended to perform. Especially a carving tool. A good crafts person, knows that it is essential he/she maintain his/her tools in good working order if the quality of work is to be preserved.

When a friendship is taken for granted, or mistreated, will it withstand the neglect or at times, miscommunication. In PL we learn that life is about us, and that we re responsible for our feelings. So I muse on if I feel slighted, or taken for granted, then it is up to me, to what…. dismiss the situation, put it aside and move on.

Not let it happen again, simply do not put your self in the position again. hmmmm the little voice says…. you could miss out on something…. you enjoy that friend. Did they intentionally set out to hurt you. The answer is no. It is simply their actions, were not appreciated by my sensitivities.

Darn being a philosopher is hard. I likely will opt for a good cry. Have a good nights sleep, and tomorrow, begin another day.

Now please everyone, don’t be sad or feel that I am blue.. I am living the moment, and will then move on. Life is too beautiful and inspiring, tomorrow I will be wide eyed and living my adventure.

a shadow will change with the movements of the sun

a cloud is temporary

love is forever and unconditional

and, I am what I am, a temporary traveler in this space and time

Saturday 14th

l am a bird in a cage

pretty and loved

yet I feel so alone

people delight and stare

they love my cage

and the clever way I get carried around

when the admiring is done,

it is back into a box I go

what good is it to be pretty and loved

if I can’t be free

mystic Monday

lush, beautiful … soft, sensuous

gentle rhythms pulsate — in the tremendous

flight of imagination … that takes place

when I am drawn into that creative space

of canvas, acrylics and the artists need

to create the emotion that begs expression

all because my computer misbehaves

PL calendar day 9 It’s interesting because it’s different

Free your mind to consider other and all possibilities.

Happy start to a new week!

Oyashikiri.

a wave to you =^_^=

no tropical blues,

just simple flowing waves,

happily rolling in to cool

on a hot humid day

when no one wants to come out to play

no sense or nonsense

V Lock Ard Gorge 4.25.17

it was a restless dream

I heard my thoughts,

the challenges from various sections

of my overworked gray cells

the unfinished sentences

the words of wisdom

clashing with aggressive shouts

the voice of reason was not to be ignored

throught it all

a part of me sat unmoved

was this nonsense

or merely me

unable to make sense

of the prattle and the inner voices

that when all vying for attention

at the same time

make no sense at all

Q

PL Calendar day 2

Live each day with hope   Even in those situation when you feel trapped with no way out, face every challenge with purpose and enthusiasm and you will always find a way.

1st day 12.14.18_023

Everything we have today, was built on the hard work of our ancestors..

Always remember to be humble and thankful.  Every moment you live, every experience you have, becomes part of who you are.  Be yourself, no one can do it better than you.

PL Precept # 2  To live is to express One’s Self.

PL Precept #15  All is a mirror

PL Precept #1   Life is Art.

1st day 12.14.18_007When a stranger lands in your space  –  There is nowhere to escape

The eyes reflect the night, you look for life inside, but find there is no sight

Others wander the night, some with seeing eyes, but not the stranger in your space

what brought her here, will tomorrow a tear be shed, or will we both stare into the night

waiting for the starship to return for her.  Of my world she cannot be, for in my world, there is room for only me  I have eyes that see and a heart that breaks, vacant eyes belong in another time and space.
1st day 12.14.18_006Be calm and kind hesitating to share true feelings, can hurt not only ourselves but others.  PL calendar .. day 17          Oyashikiri
