snow Friday

IMG_5965There is one thing to say about snow that I really enjoy.  As soon as I wake, I can hear the difference,  The world (on the street around me) is quiet.

The leaves, and colour that remained on the ground is now.  A blanket of white.

Bom dia a todos.Utilize all of your potential!

PL calendar day 16… Always approach things with full enthusiasm and energy.  Then things will develop in a new direction.

haunting beauty

IMG_7392walks in forgotten places

the whisper of the leaves

as they are temporarily displaced

by intruding footsteps

on the well-worn path

the memory haunts me

the path remains, but you are gone

no longer will we explore the unknown

for you have gone into the unknown

You have found peace forever more.

While I wait on the shore

listening for signs, that on earth, one day

peace and happiness will be found around the world

Till then, the haunting beauty will remind me of home

and the comfort of unconditional love, beyond here and into the unknown.

sometimes

IMG_6641Sometimes, we just sit around,

we don’t make a sound

except perhaps a burp now and then

really the day stretches on

we don’t know where the time has gone

It takes years of trial and error to develop this useful skill.  We live in a world of go, go, go.

IMG_9110Sitting with only the gentle stirrings of the world around you.

Can be a difficult task indeed.

Try bundling up and doing it in the dead of winter.

It is an amazing release of unwanted “baggage”.

Sometimes, the road that beckons isn’t the road you are on.

IMG_7574You will find that stepping into a different space, will also bring you to another place and maybe even time.

Live each moment with the interest you give a new book that has caught your fancy, where each page is riveting and you drink in each word, fingers poised to turn the page.

Our lives are just as interesting, when we sit in the silence of the moment, The reality of BEING is rejuvenating.

Sometimes, it simply is… no more..no less…

Bom dia everyone, have a good day dear friends.. I carry you in my heart always..

Good morning, bom dia, at the start of another beautiful day. 8 in my world is considered a lucky number.  I just happened to have my camera ready when Nick had his back turned.  Nick is one of a pair.  Mel his beautiful and talented wife was, we soon discovered, watching us from other part of the museum where she was stuck behind a short wall.  It was my good fortune that the two decided to take a day trip up to visit. Heck they only live some 11, 12 hours away.  Let me tell you they are very special.

I got to see a lot of interesting exhibits as we wandered the museum, but the greatest gift for me was to share time with friends that I have grown to love.  They bring such caring and open sharing when they are visiting.  Every visit is like a homecoming.  The laughter is genuine, such friendships are treasured.

IMG_1515Possessions can be acquired,  They can be enjoyed and cared for, but having good friends, and time spent in warm, comforting camaraderie.  That is a blessing.  It was a wonderful visit, I thank them both.

PL calendar day 7    Don’t strain, don’t rush, and don’t be greedy

When you are doing something, you may rush things to get good results quickly.  Instead, relax and enjoy he process.

I can only imagine how as the friendship grows, we will appreciate even more our differences, and our sameness.

One of life’s lessons, to be practiced and lived  – appreciate differences, everyone is unique, share with an open heart.

two of me? or is there more

 

 

Sometimes I am good, and other times, well… I want to play.  The picture on the right is of me where I accepted the challenge of wearing a bikini.  I was nervous being half-dressed like that, and couldn’t stand still.  So the picture is a bit fuzzy, but then that’s ok, cuz you can’t see all my  fat and bumps.

These were outfits I made to sell in my little shop.  The avatar is a Dinky made by a very talented artist in Second Life (Etheria Parrott)  She has  variety of dinky avatars to pick from, I happen to be a sealpoint and sometimes a lilac point Siamese.

The creative side of me can spend hours exploring the artist creations of others on the grid, and when not exploring, digital photography.

Q (that is me) can spend hours touring, taking in the sights and sounds, visiting different countries .. and never leave the comfort of my home office.  I like being Q, she is fearless, she can do almost anything,  she loves exploring and meeting people, and learning about the world around her.  I on the other hand, can be a bit of a recluse.

Awen 2008This is my friend Awen who introduced me to designing and building in/on a virtual platform.  It was a whole new world, and I was open to the challenge.

Life is unpredictable, our creativity, how we pereive the world around us, and how we want to express our individuality, is all part of a whole.  We are blessed by being given a new canvas every day.

Seize the day, make art!


PL Calendar, day 31   Your world will change when you look at things in a positive light.

Everything you encounter is an opportunity for you to express yourself.  What you choose to make of the situation is entirely up to you.

Thursday Doors

IMG_1345Happy Thursday everyone.. Bom dia.

Some doorways have a very open and spacious entrance.  Others are more “this is what you get” and the tenants do their best to make it welcoming.

Then you leave the town and head out into the open country, the sights and sounds are very different.  Yet always there are doors.

I got a tad turned around in my outing yesterday, found myself south when I should have been heading east.  Ah who cared, I was out exploring and best of all, the sights of the fall colours was awesome. Meet my new friends…

He was a brilliant conversationalist, (both males) the blonde was less talkative.  Sigh pleasures come from the most unexpected places. =^_^=

Remember, we are all responsible for the choices we make in life. Take time today to swing your happy into high gear.  Happiness is a powerful positive energy.

PL Calendar day 25…. If you skimp on the paint, your painting will not turn out well.  Live a fulfilled life every day by utilizing things, money, your knowledge or energy to their fullest.

My love and gratitude to you all.

Uma maravilhosa quinta feira a todos…

hwy to alfred7

Stay awhile, simply stand, sit, wait, till the sounds around you, are the only thoughts you hear.  Feel the breeze, take in the smells, you will feel you body start to relax.

hwy to alfred8Walk slowly, for now, in this moment,  you have no other place to be. SAy these words quietly to yourself, right now.  Then close your eyes, take a deep breath, feeling your lungs expand    smile    then slowly open your eyes.   Ahhhh how easy was that.

Go in peace my friend.  You are loved.
