working and living

2006a

Working and living =^_^=   go together – living in the NOW means you are interacting and being present all day, whether it is work or play, you are involved.  by putting your best into all you do, the experience is uniquely yours.  What ever you do today, enjoy it. Yes, really… do your best.

PL calendar day 4 – Follow your heart while also thinking about the happiness of others.

Junho 4, Pense em felicitar a si e aos outros, sendo honesto consigo.

mourning – Ancestors day

a lighthouse in the rain

My mind still talks to you

my heart still looks for you

My soul knows you are at peace

I thank God for having had you

but I still miss you so much!

My niece knew yesterday that I was in having a difficult time… she sent me this quote she found on all-great quotes.com.  I saw it only this morning.  and yes, the above is  all so true.

Ancestors day is celebrated on the 11th of every month in PL   Today is the 11th. Service is at 10 a.m.

PL calendar day 11 – Remember to be thankful and humble.  Appreciate the Makoto (sincerity) of the people who came before you.

But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you.  Love one another but make not a bond of love.  Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls   Khalil Gibran

Day 8 of the PL calendar

First accept Everything

Life is filled with moments, sometimes happy and at times inconvenient.  It is important to first accept every situation as it occurs and try to accept and understand it for what it is.

Bom dia!! Greetings on another bright sunny morning.  Mid week already, where doe the time go.

It was  fantastic day yesterday to travel the roads, the trees along the highway are starting to bud, I could feel the anticipation in every direction.  The water levels were still very high as we approached the West Island (heading into Montreal).  We observed that the water was still half way up the trees that would usually be above the water line on dry land.

Please take time to remember that tho’ the weather is currently dry, there are thousands who have suffered severe water damage over the last weeks, and need our prayers.  Not just a few, but many people have lost year of memories and accumulated treasures, and are finding themselves in a place of sadness with weeks and months of rebuilding and hard work just to regain a sense of “normal”

Life is a succession of lessons, which must be lived to be understood– Ralph Waldo Emerson

MCG demo 2

demo 2 mcg 5.2.19

Happy May 5th. Bom dia!

Another mixed media done for demo.  The idea with a demo of new and old products is to show artists, budding new crafters and seasoned expressionist  how to use some of the newer products that are arriving on the market daily.  Yes you an see YouTube videos but a video isn’t something you can touch, feel and  at the same time, have knoledegable staff who can and will help if you have questions.

I know that there are many who prefer to deal online for supplies, and if you know the product, and the supplier, have a particular way of working, and are not going to deviate from what you know.. then go for it.

My experience is that when I am in a creative mood, or am working on an idea, I want and need my inventory handy.  Part of the creative process in mixed media is to be open to new possibilities.  The demo -before- during prep.. sometimes, what is down could be up =^_^=   Abstract work, is lived in the moment.

demo mcg 2,5219The beauty of abstract mixed media… given the same products, no two pieces will come out the same.  How perfect is that.  We are all unique …  talented and beautiful.

PL calendar day 5    Start by thinking “this is interesting”

Even when you are dealing with a difficult situation, it is important to find something interesting about it. From there, you will be blessed with wisdom and something new will come of it.

My bargain tulips are blooming…

tulips T T

I took a chance, and brought them home and gave them some love. Love is a powerful gift.  Share your gift with the world. PEACE  begins within.

A reminder, if you are in the Ottawa area and want to see some amazing dogs, and mingle with a dog crowd.  Visit the market today for the special event, to showcase, our dog population.    games, fun, prizes, special, canine treats.

Enjoy the blessings of another day, share a smile, rejoice in the gift of life.

PL calendar day 2

Live each day filled with hope

Even in those situations when you feel trapped with no way out, face every challenge with purpose and enthusiasm and you will find a way.


Nick, Mel and Craig rang the partially hidden little bell

Nick and Mel, sat down to wait a spell

While Craig wandered off to find the well

“oh look”, said Mel

both doors are open, front and back

“for sure” said Nick, “let us explore

Craig will find us when he gets back”

Inside they went to look around

Meanwhile Craig having found a  fast running stream

decided to explore a little more .. will the 3 friends,

end up back where they began? Although they started in one location,  each had his/her own story to tell when ….
