When its time to eat, the clan/family gathers. There is a time of gathering, each makes his/her way to the “table”. We were not part of the dinner party, but we did get to watch as they arrived. I had stopped the car, there was such a feeling of quiet and tranquility, no city sounds, just the calling of the birds, a dog barking his/her welcome, and the ambience of the day. A perfect day in the country.

Every time we take a “day vacation” it energizes and helps put perspective on the current “state of affairs”

Have a “let’s do it” attitude. Even if a task is difficult, keep in mind it is given by God and accomplish it.

Keep your balance. A life that ignores balance will eventually lead to a deadlock. whatever you do, look at people, the environment, the state of the economy, the trend of the times , and try to express yourself properly after balancing yourself with them.

surprise visit

Seems I’m not the only one with a BD this month. Happy Birthday wishes to all other September “babies”! I know some don’t like to celebrate or even acknowledge the birthday, however, for me, I feel it is our day, not a declared holiday by another source, it is OUR day, it is the anniversary of OUR OWN PERSONAL JOURNEY.

In honour of my birthday, today I started the morning with something new. I made mashed potatoes for breakfast. LOL… I can see the eyes rolling .. I’m not a big fan of mashed potatoes in fact I seldom have them. But a friend suggested when I had the oral surgery that I should stock up on soft foods, one of the items suggested was the packaged instant potatoes. Mashed Puree butter and herb potatoes, comes in individual packages. Not bad. Just didn’t want an egg. Why not. I’m a grown up. I can have what I want for breakfast.. smiles.. that what being an adult is all about right.. we can make choices.. whenever and however.. just remember there are always consequences.

Ed took this one last winter. I’m looking forward to seeing more woodpeckers as the colder weather starts to settle in

Let’s live without compromise – No compromise means that you don’t lie to yourself and you’re honest. when you deal with things without compromise, everything will be more efficient and you will surely see remarkable results.

translated from Japanese, PL 09.19

It’s Okay! God is watchin over you. Things turn out for the best. don’t be captured by momentary troubles but continue doing everything with sincerity.

Reminder – do things with makato (sincerity) willingly and joyfully.

There is no wilderness like life without friends. Friendship multiples blessings and minimizes misfortunes; it is a unique remedy against adversity and it soothes the soul.

Wordless Sunday

PS, Sunday service being canceled simply means, we do our prayers and offer appreciation on our own. A Hokyoshi is only a call or text away if you need us.


Energy springs from your smile. A smile makes you and others cheerful and energetic.

Whoever would be a teacher of men let him begin by teaching himself before teaching others; and let him teach by example before teaching by word. for he who teaches himself and rectifies his own ways is more deserving of respect and reverence than he who would teach others and rectify their ways.

Kahlil Gibran

I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather. Rather I will always be creative, and will look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.

white dove

White doves are symbolic of new beginnings, peace, fidelity, love, luck and prosperity. Their release is a tradition that has been making ceremonies, rituals and celebrations more powerful and meaningful for thousands of years. … The symbol of the pure white dove transcends all cultures and traditions. ( taken from google search)

What Does It Mean When a Dove Visits You? The message of love, hope and peace is often conveyed in the appearance of a mourning dove. … It can represent a messenger of love sent from God. The mourning dove might be sent to you during a time of crisis. (internet)

This white dove was quick to arrive when I got out of my car, she settled on a branch nearby.. and seemed to be waiting, when I went to the back of my car to the boot, she actually moved over to sit on my car by the driver’s door. To say I was thrilled to see her is an understatement, I had never seen a white dove in person before.

It is said that if a dove follows you, it can be a message that you are in a period of rediscovery about your life. This is currently so true, another reason why I am a believer. Doves teach us that regardless of external circumstances, peace is always within reach. They carry the energy of promise… I spent a lot of time yesterday, “thinking” I am awed that out of the blue, a white dove would come to me today.

Yes there have been doves at the site where I was today, always the mourning dove.. in the pretty soft shades of gray and beige.. today … this dove was white.

Timing is important .. today is the Day of Peace in PL, it is celebrated every 1st of the month. =^_^=

Meeting the dove today, was an awe inspiring moment, Till soon.,

bjd project update

doll on left, is in rest mode.. want the green to really dry before I work on it more. doll on right still to be worked on.

These BJD (ball jointed dolls) have been patiently sitting now for over 3 years waiting for me to “get to them” I have not gotten names for them yet.. they are just “there”… The one on the left that I have been aging, is definitely going to reflect fall (big smile) my fav time of year for “creative expression” The green is a paste I’m trying that works for getting the moss effect, then I have the crypt paste which has a grit in it, and the texture grave paste I want to try. Fun time ahead. =^_^=

Each Person’s peace leads to world peace. First of all, you have to be happy. that happiness will spread and be the foundation of World Peace.

cuteness and determination

taken by Michel Lanthier, Ottawa

When I saw this picture that Michel took I knew I had to share it, (he said OK) isn’t it a heart-breaker. Michel is a wildlife photographer here in the Ottawa area, many of his pictures are stunning, but this one… it had a WOW factor I couldn’t resist. Especially as you all know a family of racoons has been trying to redo the feeders at one location, and doing a rather good job of it… I arrived at the feeders yesterday to find that the bicycle is now in two pieces.. sigh.

This is why I began to research early what will work over the coming winter season. These past weeks I have seen possibilities, but of course, the birds who will spend most of the winter months in the area, have not started to arrive. Presently there is a different clientele =^_^=

Don’t think overly about people. Instead of being excessively concerned about others, focus on what you should do.

Value your Intuition. When you suddenly have an “a-ha” moment, or when a thought pops into your mind, it is God sending you a message. As soon as you notice something, you should act upon it right away.

Perfect Liberty 2014.19

This last quote is one that I try hard to practice daily, To do so, I have to also practice, “stillness” “listening” and “patience”. It is a habit to rush, to be busy, to be on the go. I am much better now, but at one time I had a day timer and it was used every day, I scheduled, planned and wrote in it every day.. Now, I seldom use one at all. Every day is a new beginning, every day we get a chance to start a new canvas or revisit an old one.. but it is a day of possibilities. My husband’s motto was always “seize the day” =^_^= He did his best to do so till the day he passed on…

No one ever said life would be easy.. but it is always interesting and AND.. FULL OF LOVE!

When we live with love in our hearts, it spreads into the world around us… =^_^=

Life is Art

Till soon

Monday 23

its that time of year when change is in the air, soon we will find ourselves with new colours and a different landscape even tho’ we will be walking the same pathways.

Change is and can be exciting. As the petals fall, and the leaves prepare for a new season, the ground will prepare for the coming winter and the cold. The vegetation that gathered energy all summer, has fed its roots so that come the time to “sleep”.. they will be content to rest till it is time to begin another cycle.

yes I could have picked a patch that was still hearty and lush with summer blooms.. but that is not life, life is always recycling and changing, because we don’t see it, doesn’t mean that its not happening,

Let’s interact proactively with an ever-changing society. Society is always rapidly changing with the times. Keep your eyes and mind in tune with these changes and learn to deal with them proactively.

Perfect Liberty 2014.27

Have a good day everyone.

Smile from the heart!
