Sunday -strolling thru

Because (update) I had a bit of a set back yesterday, I will be off my leg for another while. I was thrilled when I saw Num had posted the above pictures, this is where I want to be.. I so much want to be back wandering the woodlands..Sooooo I am being good, and practicing patience as best I can to ensure the leg heals. My new camera is heavy, and the terrain I like to wander is on the rugged side.. current mantra is patience girl, patience.

With one thought “The world” will change. Changing your way of thinking will make a difference on how you perceive the world.

I will be doing a blog on the Sax on the Beach venue I attended (virtually) later today or tomorrow to show you some of the talent I got to see and enjoy, I will post to my Virtual news 8 blog, SEE LINK. Please subscribe to it for news on the event and other venues and entertainment news from SL (Second Life) It is an opportunity for you to enjoy and get to know about people from all over the world through their creativity and talents. All from the comfort of your home. https://virtualnws8.ca/

My friend Shirley in NZ visited the most wonderful attraction in Denniston of an old coal mine. I’m going to share some of her pictures here for you to enjoy.

Where ever you are in the world, this is a wonderful time of the year, the cooler air is exciting, it brings with it the winds of change, and therefore we have new discoveries to explore. Through the adventures of my friends who like myself like to wander and explore, through my blog I try to share with you the awesome world we live in. In Shirley’s pictures I could envision how the coalfields must have looked back when it was operational, the hive of activity, the human energy it required to function.

We (as a people) have come such a long way, the history of our past, the trials, the hardships, the joys and the new discoveries are all part of what we have to thank for, where we are today.

With the new season soon to be with us, let’s strive to be better at being open to new ideas, new possibilities, and remember to give thanks for where we have been, and the people/ancestors who paved the way for us.

With one thought “the World” will change, it begins with US.

Love you all. Till soon

Rain is here for the day

Listen to the falling rain
Till soon

elusive

In the cold gray of the morning light, I got myself ready to find the elusive wild turkeys… Nope, not a one did I see, but I did get some good shots in before the pending rain would start. I used the time to try different settings on this new camera of mine, and to get used to holding it, its big and I have small hands. I like “doing” .. used to enjoy getting up everyday to go to work too. Yup I’m “one of those” It is not “work” when you love what you do ..

What is “normal” is different for each individual. Everyone has a different way of thinking and doing. It’s important to understand others’ feelings.

Quiet zone

Yesterday as we drove towards our destination, we were greeted along the way with the colour changing of the leaves here in Canada where I live. When I returned and visited my e-mails, there was a message from my dear friend in Japan .. this is along her drive when she is returning home.. very different scenery from me. Took me back to when I was visiting in Japan, and how I marvelled at the landscapes, and visions that were all so new to me. I had never seen rice paddies and was totally enchanted by them when I walked into the town and saw that the land behind houses was used for growing rice, not gardens and backyards like we see here.

Her pictures reminded me of how differently other people live, depending on where they are located in the world. Yet, tho’ we live separated by miles (physical distance) our hearts and minds are in sync, and we share wonderful friendships.

My friend in Brazil sends me the most amazing pictures of the blossoms that she finds in and around her home, it can be cold and snow here and in my mail will arrive the brilliant colours of a tropical flower.. always accompanied by the wonderful sage lessons of PL. PL (Perfect Liberty) is a philosophy that is practiced all around the world, it keeps us all connected and accompanied along our spiritual paths, and in our day to day lives.

Love, caring, thoughtfulness, the joy of sharing, that is Universal, when we share in the joys of love, we take another step towards World Peace. there is no one definition for Love, it simply IS… have yourself an amazing day!

Don’t think “I can’t” from the start. Begin by taking the first step, then you’ll be able to see what comes next and a path will open.

1st of October

the blush of change

Depending on where you are in the city and surrounding areas, the colours are beginning to deepen .. In some areas, there is a rainbow of colour, yet you drive out west of the downtown core and the greens are still dominant. Change is on its way, you can feel it in the air, smell it on the breeze that brings a chill and hovers before drifting off. The Robins are being social, coming out and being more present around us when we are on the trails. Every day I hear the sound of the crows as they inspect and search out their winter “resorts”… yesterday another photographer was patiently waiting for a “big” as she called it, wood pecker that had been frequenting the feeder area.

PL Precept 7 Everything exists in relativity….

PL Precept # 16 All things progress and develop.

Today being the 1st, in PL it is when the PL ceremony for Peace is performed – today at 10 a.m. if you can’t make it to church, please take a moment to pray for world peace. Remember to show appreciation and give thanks for yesterday, and NOW.

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.

You have the opportunity every day to start a new canvas..

I appreciate YOU.

a door

instant memories of another time

another place, what was this for

inside looking ever so forlorn

an old Bell telephone

pay phone…..

I have memories of such phones

there was a time

when you could make a call for a dime

you would drop your coin into the slot

wait for dial tone, then dial

the number of the party you were trying to call

Can you recall the number of times

you stood in the cold,

it could rain or be full sunshine

but if there was a call box with a door

it was such a pleasure to be inside

for your call …. we didn’t linger on the phone

we made our call, then moved on,

the call box was a sight to behold

when you were stranded in the cold

and needed to connect with a friend

or call for help. A door on a call box

also meant the conversations you had

could be discreet, personal and if

you’d called for a cab, a place to wait

sheltered from the day/night

always remember to say thank you

to a door.

Do things joyfully instead of taking it easy. Enthusiastically engage with what’s in front of you. You’ll enjoy it more.

meditation

There are so many ways to meditate, it is such a personal way to re-group and reconnect with one’s own inner thoughts/feelings. I marvel at how easy it is to fall out of the “habit” of being “aware”. there was a time I schooled myself to always be aware, taking time to enjoy each step along the way of whatever day I was experiencing.

We often lean towards what is easy. The first time I was told I was “lazy” … I really was offended, “me lazy” surely this was not an accurate assessment of “me”… but if I am truly honest with myself, I have moments. my choices are not always based on “productivity”. But then, why does one need to always be productive. =^_^=

As I slowly navigate this world I am in now, I realize that my situation, my personal space, everything that had been once “normal” is now actually just “clutter” Time has passed, I am coming out of a time of “loss” and “mourning”, the world around me seems different. + It is, the younger generations have different understanding of what and where the world is today… the older travellers … have all come from different backgrounds, their life experiences are etched on their faces, the tell tale shadows of the past linger in their eyes.

When I stand still in the middle of the woodlands, in whatever weather, just stand there, not moving, just listening, my eyes looking nowhere in particular, just taking in the moment, I feel the stillness wash over me, the birds, chipmunks, squirrels, all return to their business of “being” and we all become part of NOW. That moment in time for me is a meditation, it can last seconds, minutes, there is no “clock” just that space where the tranquility of “BEing” is all there is.

Experiencing such moments, means that I can recall that “silence” “stillness” at other times, it is a place I like to be. In such times of “contentment” I realize that you are part of that moment, because you are part of me. We are all ONE with the Universe, with our unique rhythms, sometimes we are in sync, and other times we are simply ships passing in the night. Either way, you are part of my world, and like the seasons, the ebb and flow of life will keep us harmonized.

Till soon

Friends!

True love transcends all boundaries.

Be careful about saying “It’s probably good enough. Wholeheartedly do what you notice, when and how you notice it.

Sunday brunch

Was very impressed with how diligently they processed visitors coming in, we needed proof of vaccines, government ID card, and our temperatures taken before being allowed in. Floors were clearly marked with signs showing spacing, the restaurant was divided in a way that every one had plenty of personal space. Prior to going up for food, there were gloves ready for us to put on, and hand sanitizer set up for easy access. There was no handling of food without gloves, which were to be replaced each time you went up for food. Everyone wore masks unless you were seated at your table.

A wonderful experience shared with family and friends.. my last BD outing for the month. I cannot say that this year my birthday was not celebrated in style. Thank you everyone!!!

Tomorrow Monday 27th.

It’s okay to think “this is where it starts” There is always a turning point. It’s important what you do from now.
