sometimes

IMG_6641Sometimes, we just sit around,

we don’t make a sound

except perhaps a burp now and then

really the day stretches on

we don’t know where the time has gone

It takes years of trial and error to develop this useful skill.  We live in a world of go, go, go.

IMG_9110Sitting with only the gentle stirrings of the world around you.

Can be a difficult task indeed.

Try bundling up and doing it in the dead of winter.

It is an amazing release of unwanted “baggage”.

Sometimes, the road that beckons isn’t the road you are on.

IMG_7574You will find that stepping into a different space, will also bring you to another place and maybe even time.

Live each moment with the interest you give a new book that has caught your fancy, where each page is riveting and you drink in each word, fingers poised to turn the page.

Our lives are just as interesting, when we sit in the silence of the moment, The reality of BEING is rejuvenating.

Sometimes, it simply is… no more..no less…

Bom dia everyone, have a good day dear friends.. I carry you in my heart always..

inner travels

IMG_1362

I lay watching the slow rotation of the ceiling fan, a very lazy start to the day indeed. Keeper (female whippet) lay sprawled out beside me.  She was showing her nurturing side, concerned that today might be a repeat of yesterday.

IMG_1358She gets very concerned when I cry and wail.  Velcro (male whippet) her older brother, takes it in stride, he saw and lived through my display of raw emotion, when my husband was in his final days, and Keeper got out and ran away.  Yesterday he simply got up from his favourite chair in another part of the house, to come  lie beside me, to lend me his support and quietly wait it out.

IMG_1360My son the other day, looked at me, and said, ” Mom, its OK to cry”  and of course it is, but for me, I can’t just cry, I have to be  totally shaken and depleted, the body has to over-ride my happiness and stubborn mind that tells me, that there is just so much to be thankful for.  And of course there always is, I am so blessed.

However sometimes, the sadness, and discontent of others is too much for me to bear. I feel their pain, frustrations and disillusion.  And I have learned that I cannot be happy for someone else.  You can not lift the happiness from your life, like a shawl and put it around someone else. You can be kind, listen, share in their “present state” and lend what-ever support you can.

IMG_1363

In the end, the choice belongs to them.  Yesterday I cried, all the sadness, the disappointments that I have listened to for the last many days and months, welled up and demanded to be released. I wanted escape, and freedom from the continuous onslaught of negative news, the vicious nature that is surfacing in the world around us.  The curiosity we seem to have for the gossip tabloids, that thrive by reporting or should I say offering up gossip about cheating, lying and fornication.  Where we lust instead of love.

IMG_1365Time for some time out.  Quality time without a cell phone,  computer, laptop, or tablet. There is a reason, dogs (pets) are the best of friends.  They offer unconditional love. Nothing more, nothing less.

Cherish your family and friends, offer kindness and understanding to those around you, when there is unkindness, or dishonesty aimed in your direction. Deflect it, or let it pass you by.  Life is too short.

Wordless Wednesday que mais?

Pansy Patch Park

It is a protected environment, and very special in a way that  stands out in today’s world.  The grounds are a real lawn, not artificial looking,( perfectly green, no weeds), it is a pleasure to walk on such a lovely patch of yesterday where it is left to nature and the squirrels and plant that live there.  The mature trees around the grounds, allow only so much sunlight. A treasure for sure, a turn off a street, down a country lane, et voila!!!

 

Life is to be enjoyed, appreciate the beauty of the world, and the creative works of others who have spent lifetimes giving back to the world around them.  LIFE IS ART. PL Precept #1   Life is Art

Picture was taken yesterday at beautiful Pansy park in Pembroke, Ontario. I have never seen so many black squirrels in one place.  A step back in time.

in the quiet stillness of the day, I found my way, to a very quiet moment in time. Q

Wordless Wednesday – almost

IMG_0665

almost paradise

Sounds of commercial enterprise, busy traffic, and every day hustle and bustle was a tad distracting, for now, this oasis is there for me to enjoy.

Beauty is genuine

 

IMG_0576_editedGood day to everyone… Bom Dia!!

We all have that friend who can walk into a room bringing the warmth of the sun and the breeze of a tropical day just by smiling.  Caring, and  thoughtful, the energy is a bright light around her, and sweeps the cares away.

Of course not… not forever, but when that friend comes to share it is a genuine, one on one.

Perfect Liberty calendar, day 16

Don’t hold anything back;  Give it your All

Always approach things with full enthusiasm and energy.  Then, things will develop in a new direction.

When we live our lives with genuine feeling,  commitment, (Makoto) it is the smile that shares with the world.  Others around you feel good, and in turn, radiate, and pass it on.

Love is genuine, it cannot be defined, contained, or captured, it simply IS.  Love is life, death and everything in between.  Smile today and pass it on.

Take ordinary and turn it into extraordinary and sensational.

found

 

found VV July 10.18We begin our journeys with such innocence

so many dreams, hopes, genuine happiness

we find ourselves discovering something new every day.

Why do some of us stop discovering, and allow routine to take over..

found VV july 10These dolls I found the other day

Have been around, the top one probably more so than the other one

Where have they been, what stories could they tell.

These little treasures will come with me to the next Doll meeting

hopefully I will learn more there.

For the moment they have a new place to stay and experiences to  acquire.

IMG_3654Every day is a new opportunity to live another story line, every day is a new beginning.

Look down, look up, look around, pleasures abound, waiting to be found.
