broken

What happens when something happens that is out of your control. One minute there is a familiar and welcoming environment, and suddenly with a roar of a raging, angry, demented winds and torrential downpour, years of happy memories are wiped out. boom, crash, what was, is gone. Like a ripple in the calm waters. one casualty causes a domino effect.

The forest floor is littered with fallen trees, some have been standing for years, their arms had reached high into the sky, now… they lie broken, no longer able to stand, so damaged there is no way to heal. Because these trees are in areas that are frequented by humans, not all, but some will not be left as they have fallen, but will need to be removed, in most cases, relocated or repositioned so that they are not a safety hazard.

The damages have been so extensive (we are blessed in this Province with a lot of green space.) it will be not weeks, but months , maybe even years before there is a sense of “normal” again. People with special training from the Forestry dept. have been called in.. It is a huge project.

blocked path by a tree that finally fell – yes there is still danger of falling trees!

Some areas might look safe, but if the NCC has danger /caution tapes up, and the sign says THIS SITE IS CLOSED … there is a valid reason for this. I am amazed at just how many times these tapes need replacing because “some people” feel the need to rip them down, and enter when there are clear signs that the area has not been cleared yet and is still a potential danger/risk.

There are ways around the tapes, one can go under or walk to an area that is not barred, people determined to go in, do so at their own risk.. When you take down the caution tapes and rip away the signs saying the site is closed, that puts other people at risk.

It is not fun to be stuck in one place. Instead of being captured by what’s in front of you strive to broaden your horizons.

my first owl in a tree

Ok which little owl is this?

My very first actual sighting of an owl sleeping in a tree. I can’t tell you the thrill it was for me. This little darling was used to being photographed.. the experienced photographers knew he was there, and most had already taken his/her picture. “kristoff” from Gatineau, was kind enough to point him out for me .. and show me where to stand so that I could get a clear shot. I knew from previous visits that there was an owl in a tree in that area… I had seen others gathered around getting a picture, but always there were so many I just wandered off to other areas.

Yesterday was cooler, and there were less people around. Ground was still muddy (very) from the rain and the snow of the previous days. Please if you know which owl this is.. can you you leave me his/her identification below. Much appreciated.

This was another of my host birds.. this one was at my feet, we just stood looking at one another. She/he patiently waited for me to move aside. I was the intruder.

this was not a photo lens shot, this was lower my camera and click.

I’m including this next picture, because, these critters were everywhere, if they could have pulled on pant legs for attention they would. There are big signs all over, not to feed… I simply moved on.. but they were very persistent.

Can you guess where I’m headed as soon as I finish here…. LOL… have a good day everyone..

Today’s church calendar quote…

Are you overdoing things? Not only do you harm yourself when you overdo things but you may be imposing on others as well.

Face the speaker, make eye contact and listen carefully. Listening to people is also a form of expression. Listen with Makoto (sincerity).

Perfect Liberty 2022.15

Love everyone – I want to be a person who can love, be kind, and forgive anyone without discrimination. When we love ourselves and everyone, “peace and welfare forever” will surely be realized.

lesson 2022.02.15 translated to English in Japan

[Fate (divine work) can be pioneered] There are joys and difficulties in life, and how you express yourself is a turning point in your destiny. If you take this from the bottom of your heart, it will be a mirror and things will get better. To open up your destiny, you have to be grateful for everything that appears before you, and do your best in prayerfully and with all your might.

Let’s have a humble mind. Once you think, “That’s good enough,” you become blind to the opportunities to be more creative.

Teaching of the week Seek to do what you don’t like Common thought is to move away from what you don’t like, this will however narrow your self-expression. Strive to overcome your weaknesses, what makes you say ; THIS I DON’T LIKE, WHAT I DON’T WANT. If you do so, you will discover a peculiar taste in what you judge to be bad. In addition, there is, in this gesture, a subtle and irreplaceable joy that only you can taste. (translated from Portugeuse)

Ensinamento da semanaProcure fazer o que não gostaO pensamento comum é o de afastar-se daquilo que não gosta, isto no entanto, irá estreitar a sua auto expressão.Esforce se para superar suas fraquezas, aquilo que lhe faz dizer ; ISTO EU NÃO GOSTO, AQUILO EU NÃO QUERO.Se assim fizer, você descobrirá um sabor peculiar naquilo que julga ser ruim.Além disso, existe, neste gesto, uma alegria sutil e insubstituível que só você poderá saborear.

[Laziness] No matter how hardworking you are, you can call yourself lazy if you put off doing what you have to do because it’s troublesome or put off doing what you like first. What remains after being lazy such as “later…” is a pile of difficult problems that make you mentally tired every day. Isn’t it piled up with difficult problems? Let’s make each one interesting and enjoyable. Perfect Liberty 2021.12.24 (translated in Japan to English.)

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

coming…

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.

Perfect Liberty 2021.14

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.

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.

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.

Perfect Liberty 2021.19

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

Till soon – love YOU

Happy

Abstract – Receiving

You’re happy, I’m happy Have the mindset of “good for you, good for me” Express yourself in a way that makes others happy.

Perfect Liberty 2021.7

Focus on the good in others and applaud them every chance you get.

Till soon

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.

Perfect Liberty 2021.31

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… =^_^=

always
