Are you stuck

Do you ever get that feeling .. you are not grounded?

When you get stuck… take a step back … When you are able to see things objectively, your viewpoint will change and you will receive new wisdom

Perfect Liberty 2022.23

Words, words words… so often we read something and say to ourselves.. “this is so true” or “yes, makes sense” sound familiar.. we tuck it away and then…. we move on… I am trying to be more aware of all the times I realize something, go ah haha… and then continue doing exactly what I’ve just realized I should perhaps consider “changing”. I’m lazy. Gosh that is a hard one for me to swallow. Changing means I have to move out of my comfort zone…

Today I will try to do better.. I will do my best to…. and here I went blank … the thought left me… time for a walk and some quiet reflection…

Till soon

2022.09.22.

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!

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.

I love this piece… (my own work)

I wrote yesterday – hiding in plain sight – little did I know. The body is wonderful, when you over do or are in danger of causing serious damage to yourself… it shuts down.. In my case, it presented me with a problem I could not ignore. a whopper of migraine. So severe I had no choice but to lie down and let it fade and believe me, it was not going to make it an easy fix.

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

Perfect Liberty 2022.13

If you have never had a migraine or suffer from headaches.. you will not understand or know that there is only one way what works, cuz your laid out, completely incapacitated…It is the body’s way of saying STOP you haven’t been listening. I encourage you all, if you are running from one “task/chore” to another and not taking the needed time for YOU… don’t fall into the trap.. Nothing is more important than YOUR peace of mind and making time for SELF CARE.

energy-balance -joy

My spirituality is something I will never outgrow. it sustains me year after year and I truly believe that every day brings tremendous possibilities. ie a chance to live more fully, love more deeply and learn something new, no matter how old (physical age) I get. We can remain ageless – strong – healthy – happy and connected. but it isn’t always smooth sailing.

September is flying by all too quickly… Today is the 10th already! My morning began at 4 something .. yes a.m. I originally woke it was 3 something… after a wee break with Keeper… she now takes a break with me.. and we have for now almost eliminated accidents..(the vet has her on special food to control the acidity of her urine etc.) Balance is important even for dogs. Balance is important in all our lives.

It’s easier to adapt to something when we find it interesting. No matter how enjoyable a situation is, a slight change in our attitude can make it boring. Let’s face any situation with curiosity and enthusiasm.

bear scat (photo Daniel R.)

Daniel found his scat further along the trail, I found my scat closer to the parking lot on my out, heading down towards the research area ..(P23) a word of caution to hikers .. there are bears wandering.

Life will present you with many choices today, at some time.. make time for YOU. Not just the To Do list.

btw… on inspection yesterday, I saw that the bears are still finding and eating beautiful big black berries.

always and forever

Reminder. tomorrow the 11th. there will be service on Sunday, we will be doing the Ancestors Day ceremony at 10 a.m.

The tree in the first picture is at P7 (Sarsaparilla Trail) NCC Greenbelt – west end near the look out.

When life sends you a message you can’t ignore

Express yourself clearly so others can understand you. When you can’t communicate clearly, it can lead to problems. Always express yourself carefully to avoid any misunderstandings

Perfect Liberty 2022.9

Stop hesitating … It is more natural for you to be direct and say what is on your mind. Holding back or hesitating is unnecessary.

Perfect Liberty 2017.27

When I think that life couldn’t get any more “complex” or “disturbing” the Universe sends me a “ray of sunshine”.. a text from a friend, a raven will fly across my path and call out to me… sometimes I think it is telling me to “smarten up”… to listen with an open heart… or a “critter” will wander out of the forest and waddle past me showing great unconcern of my presence…

What is time when we have forever…

simply said… I believe – I truly do

Contagious

Chinese Lanterns, celebrations, happiness, they are such a joyful plant, I have the little lanterns at the entrance to my home, and in the house. I know fall is not far when they begin to show up, their happy colour peeking out from the green leaves. There is a lot of unhappiness in the world these days – share a smile, spread happiness – be open to listening – the only constant in life is change.

Think “now is the time” Instead of “it’s no use now” don’t give up by thinking it’s too late. Tell yourself that there is more that can be done.

Is Chinese lantern plant edible?

The fruits are edible and suprisingly, are higher in vitamin C than lemons. Care should be taken though, as all other parts of the plant are poisonous. The plant also has a long history of medicinal uses.
