tree hugger

IMG_1493I travel far and near to find a tree, usually when I do find one that will chat with me, he lives with cousins near by who are also willing to spin a yarn or two.

IMG_1491Oh goodness me child, how nice of you to stop and visit.  We can wait from dawn to dusk to be noticed, but find, we are old, and worn, so no one stops to visit anymore.  They come with their dogs and walk right by, they head for open spaces.

IMG_1489Freddy down the way, will be glad of some company,  he gets few tenants these days, not even the dogs that come this way, use us anymore to mark their way.

IMG_1495Down the bend, to the right, you will see  a path beside Uncle John.  The leaves are crisp you will enjoy the sound as they say thank you for your trust in accepting their guidance as you walk the unknown path.

IMG_1498Please come again, your shadow is growing taller,  In a few months when you come again, we will be able to show you much more of our world.  Then we will see your shadow in the snow. till then, your shadow imprint, will remain for a while, leaving us smiling, because you shared with us.

Just me and my shadow, enjoying the morning sun.  There are a lot of roads out there, this one I will visit again. I enjoy and appreciate visiting with Nature. It is pure, it is real.

book cover 11.4.18

Bonjour, Bom dia, greetings, Sunday 4th. November

Words are wonderful, words can do so much, however, as I wrote about my adventure to and from Montreal the other day, my thoughts were in colours.  Try as I might, I wanted somehow to express the emotions of colours in a more tangible way. I have a canvas on the go too, but am not ready to show you yet.  I am on stage 3 or 4 with this book cover. This will be my November December art journal, or Junk journal, whatever, which ever it is a book I will use to play “art” in.

That means that I will play with it, use it, daily or when the time is there for me, to interact with it.. and allow it to become. =^_^=

When we love what we do, or are doing, it may have its “opportunities” but we will creatively enjoy each step of the way, learning all the way.

PL calendar day 4   Enthusiasm will make things interesting

When you put your whole heart into what you are doing, you will begin to notice many important details and your creativity will blossom.

Graffiti art

IMG_1123

Segunda-feira, Greetings everyone, Bom Dia – What is art?

In PL, Precept #1  Life is Art and because we believe that each individual is unique, that says that each person, will have their own creativity.  Their own way of addressing life’s opportunities, and deciding how they will express their personal creativity.

If I had cropped the above picture in a different way, it would have been simply a work of art.  Someone’s way of making a statement, expressing their “need” at the time.  Because it was done on someone elses’ property, we call it graffiti,  The person expressed themselves but at the expense of a neighbour or the city .  “Art”  in this case, the act of expression, made or makes a statement beyond the person’s creativity with a paint can, it says that this person has a disregard for his /her neighbour’s or communities property.

We all make choices, each and every moment of the day.  At the end of the day, only you know if your true intentions were expressed, or if you made choices that perhaps could have been expressed in a different way.

PL Calendar 29   Be cheerful and easy-going.  Everything has a way of turning out alright in the end.  Relax and always try to think positively

Oyashikiri

 

 

 

a quiet moment

 

hwy to alfred1

Quiet, blue skies, puffy clouds, shadows, the dignity of dying, allowing for the next season to begin.  Gratitude and Acceptance.

Some stay behind, some go on to reclaim their freedom, their work on earth is done.

Q

Cranberry delight

 

IMG_1206I felt like I was walking in my own wonderland.  Given permission to wander and enjoy, I took full advantage and drove down towards the fields of now harvested cranberries.

 

The light drizzle and clouds over head, did nothing to dampen the thrill of the experience.

IMG_1249

There was a calm, the ducks, and birds were nesting and peaceful, the waters drifted lazily along, enjoying the pull of the breezes.

IMG_1261

I had wanted to visit the Cranberry fields for a very long time.  The other day, I slowed down, and took the winding country lane down to the farm.   Upper Canada Cranberries, Ottawa’s only cranberry grower.  Greely, Ontario.  613-798-6232, or the other number shown, 613-720-6232.

It is of course off season, the harvesting had been down, workers were gone, it was just me and whatever wild life  called the farm home.

IMG_1269

I was happy, my spirits were soaring with the high of being alive and able to be there at that moment in time. For me, it was a blessings, pure  intoxicating love for all that IS.

The owner was busy when I was driving out,  I hope he knows how content I was.  He lives and works in this environment all year.  WOW…  He has a small store front, for days he is open.  You can get fresh cranberries, and pure cranberry juice, no sugar.  That my dears is a find.  If you are in the area, please look the place up.

IMG_1302This was a very special blessing, I followed through on my desire to visit the farm, there was no distraction.  My reward was the intense feelings of being ONE with the environment I was in.

I wish this for each and every one of you. Have a joy filled day… now and always.

*Deus Natureza (Maria Aldinria M.Martins)

Obrigado Oshioya-Sama Por me ensinar amar assim.  Por ver Deus dentro de mim E em qualquer lugar.

IMG_1142

Thank you Oshieoya-sama for teaching me to love, to see God within me  and everywhere around.

*Excerpts from God and Nature, sung in church Sunday, (page)

I can harmonize with you with nature and humankind.  I am happy living like this, a rich feeling hard to find.  Harmonizo-me contigo, com os homens e a natureza.  Viendo assim sou feliz E nao ha maior riqueza

With love and blessings, great the world with your smile and presence.

Oct.2.Tuesday

yoda 3Good morning, bom dia, a quick doodle, or sketch this morning, of a little character that has caught my fancy.  You may or may not recognize Yoda, he was brave and intelligent, I like those characteristics.  Above all I appreciate creativity and  how when it is used for good, can do so much of a positive nature to the world around us.

Lately I have had to turn my attention away from watching media that  (in my view) is negative and confrontational.  We seem to no longer promote or share stories of goodwill, and /or positive interactions between the people who live on this planet.  We seem to see only politics, religions (all man-made) and use them to batter the people who make up our communities.  Our neighbours, friends, family, coworkers, why is it always, we against they/them, even within small units of people.

Watch the shift that will come, as the holiday season approaches, and the marketing  goes into full gear.  Then goodwill towards all will be played in the malls, over the media. glittering and shiny new toys and household gadgets will appear, Spend spend spend, then you will be happy…..right, till the bills come in

Yoda where are you, we need you now.. where are you with your clone troopers, come out of the fiction, we need you here and now.  Evil isn’t in the skies and outer worlds, it is here, living amongst us now,

oh dear, oh dear, I am having a rant. quick my coffee, get me to a store so I can shop, change my focus…… unfortunately that is a temporary distraction.  I still believe we need a Yoda.  What do you think?

PL Principle #2  I will not have complaints about others,matters,nor the weather.  Rather I will always be creativce and will look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.

Obviously this will be my mantra for today.  Blessings all, huge hugs.

Oyashikiri
