Happiness is

nature’s natural beauty

It had started to rain, small droplets fell on my windshield, I was prepared for a downpour.. but.. no, the rain stopped.. I looked over to my right and saw the tall grass and the trees with their fall colour, and couldn’t resist.. I pulled over and got out. Traffic be darned. As if on cue, the traffic trickled to zero. I was able to stand there, admire the beauty… and take in the moment without the sound of tires on pavement.

Moodie is a busy road but I was blessed with a quiet few moments, and for that I was truly grateful… it was such a refreshing and rather intoxicating moment. I had been having a busy morning, productive, but busy .. the few moments of solitude, surrounded with natures beauty… was energizing.

Let’s find the joy in everything. Are you looking for things to complain about? Let’s change our perspective and live a cheerful and joyful life.

looking back

Old pictures found while cleaning up.. My first base guitars. LOL.. you can see had I kept them…they would be vintage now. My Gibson on the right was a real thrill for me when I got it.. I looked for more pictures thought maybe I could find one with my knee high white leather boots… and psychedelic dress. LOL you were spared, no more pictures turned up.

You kidding. I wouldn’t know what to do if I had one now. Same as I no longer drive a stick shift. We change with the times…. I am grateful for all of my life experiences.. In PL we do our best to live in the NOW. Being present in our day to day .. means, we truly get to live each precious moment that comes our way.

No effort is ever wasted. Even if no one witnesses your actions, God is watching you. No matter how small your efforts, your Makoto (sincerity) will always be rewarded.

end of a perfect day!

along the Ottawa river – going towards Petawawa, Ontario, CA

When something comes to mind, do it right away, the moment that you notice something is the best time to take care of it. If you react quickly, your life will be more efficient.

Had a wonderful “SPECIAL DAY”. my wonderful friend Eartha spoiled me, doing all the driving. We headed towards the Military base, taking side trips along the way…. all the while keeping the Ottawa river in our sights.

A “time out” day.. perfect in every way. Thank you for all the well wishes, and the birthday greetings.. I feel very blessed.. without you all … life would not be the same… Thank YOU.

Give it your best

If you’re going to do it, give it your best effort. your actions will be dulled if you worry too much about the outcome. Once you decide on a course of action, don’t hesitate to complete your task.

A cheerful smile and expression makes everyone around you happy. When you do everything with a smile, not only you but the people around you will feel good. Always remember to put on a happy face.

Sumac

Sumac is a beautiful plant, I tried to grow it once, it is hardy in our area, however it is also very aggressive. I thought it would be nice in an area of the property, but soon had to start digging it out. It grew and grew and grew.. all over… Everywhere!

In other areas of the world Sumac is cultivated and used as a herb, spice, tea, it is considered to have many health benefits as well. From my past experience with it.. I now enjoy it when I go on walks, or come across it in my travels while hiking.. The desire to have it in my personal space, has long gone.

My experience with the Sumac is much like some of my other “encounters/experiences” while progressing along on this road of “life” Some experiences I explored and moved on.. and others I have retained in my “memory bank” and bring out from time to time to reflect on how the experience enriched my life.

Begin your day with appreciation. Welcome each new day with renewed appreciation, and step forward with a feeling of World Peace in your heart.

Always be cheerful, happy and good humored. When you make an effort to be cheerful and happy, you will naturally begin to feel that way.

Wednesday

walk with me..

Welcome another day

walk with me, stay by my side

for I am here for you

a silent whisper of energy

traveling by your side

there is no right or wrong way

together we will stay, always side by side

like the pine and the oak

we share the “WAY”

it is in our togetherness

that the Universe will be sowed with love

and a lasting JOY of PEACE.

Love begins within

Our roots entwined

bound forever in time.

I Love YOU

Q

Live today with LOVE in your heart, it is a HAPPY day! Live the PL WAY!

Rocks

I have a soft spot for rocks. There is something about a rock that seems to be so attractive and mysterious at the same time. I have never come across a rock that I have not enjoyed meeting. They come in all shapes and sizes, for sure some are more valuable than others.. depending on their composition… For me.. they are story tellers. Each one has its very own unique story line. This group with the water as a backdrop appealed to me, I studied it for some time. There was a seating area near by…

is this not inviting?

I dared not sit .. I wanted to badly, but I was not dressed for the brisk freshness of the early morning. It will be my “destination” on another day. the above rocks are just off to the left of this wonderful chair. I picture myself there on one of our famous “indian summer” days lazily allowing the day to wash over me.

Treat today as if it your first time around. Just because you succeeded in the past ti doesn’t guarantee that things will go as smoothly this time around. Every day, each moment, there is a new challenge to face.

I will get to see the rocks in a different light, I will be curious to see if the same images appear. Enjoy the coming week… Sleep sweet dreams this evening, and if it is morning when you read this.. have a stunning day!

make it happen

It was a cool day today, there was a strong wind, and few people on the beach. Being a Saturday of a long week-end, the last before we march into the fall season, I expected there would be more people

Nice and quiet. There would be more people … the cars were pulling in steadily, with the promise of sun for most of the day, the scene would change soon enough. After all, it was not yet nine a.m.

Don’t give up!

Stick with it, as many times as it takes. Sometimes you want to just throw in the towel and say, “I give up” but that is the time for you to dig deep and push through. Your sincere effort will invite a good outcome.

hidden gem

play of shadows and sunlight bring natural beauty to light

Having a clear image is the first step towards accomplishing your goals. What do you want to accomplish and by when? The more concrete your thoughts, the easier it is to make it a reality.
