Greetings every one, Que lindo dia!
When is a mound of earth, not just a heap of dug up and discarded earth. When I find it and love it!!! No this is not the same picture of the other day, this is the same mound, but I am standing at a different place and closer …
How often have you heard me say, two people looking at the very same landscape, will not see the same things. Nor will their attention be drawn to the same area, or focus point, it is impossible.
Just as I see life my way, and you see life in your own way. we live and experience life very differently, even though we share the same blue skies, maybe we even live in the same part of the world, in close proximity.
Life is different for each and every one of us. How we live, our acceptance of the challenges and opportunities, that is also unique to “us”. That is why it (life) is so interesting, every day is a new opportunity to discover something new.

Mother Earth -by Q
This capture is very Yin
The other day, I drove by a work site, and saw the mounds of earth, with their new growth. It rocked with me I loved it. So much so, that I went back and drove into the construction site, to take pictures.
My very own treasure chest, the dry earth, the cracks, loved it all. I really do marvel at the way nature provides me with such wonders. actually it is for everyone, but some how I don’t think everyone gets as chuffed up as I do about such things.
To have had a macro lens I would have been up there trying to catch every nook and cranny that took my fancy.
We are all different, we all take in the world around us in our own way. That is what makes the environment and the populations in it, so intriguing and inspiring.

PL Precept #15 All is a Mirror
My love to each and every one of you. Oyashikiri
Travel down an old country road on a lazy afternoon just two old friends, out for a drive. A country lass and an urban miss. The old hydro lines are what caught my eye. We stopped so I could get a shot. We were not that far off the beaten track, yet, the fields of green, and the old lines, gave me a feeling of another time and place,.
Best of all I was with someone who had grown up in the country, and loved the fields of crops and the newly cut hay just as much as I did. We would sigh with contentment when we passed peaceful gathering of cows enjoying the shade of sprawling trees sheltered by outcrops of large boulders and rocks.
Too often I am traveling down a major highway or road to a destination, this was a just because drive. No deadline, no specific time frame, just a drive, with a stop for lunch at a marina along the way. talking was optional.
Be kind to yourself. Make time for you. Lazy summer days are few and far between when we live a busy lifestyle.
That day we had mostly sunshine, but the rain did fall, we got the black rolling clouds, and vivid display of lightning. Made our day complete. Have you ever smelled the lush green meadows after a rainfall? Experienced the return of the sun and clear blue skies after an explosive down pour. the change in temperatures during all this variety of weather. Mother Nature works her magic in very special ways.
Get out and enjoy the day, make today a special day.

PL Precept # 15 All is a mirror
visions that danced before my eyes
simple beauty that caused my mind to stray
Every day we have the chance to see an array of colours, that really do take the breath away. Yet, somehow we fail to let the quiet impressions of calm, take hold and keep us in a serene state for the rest of the day. Instead we are affected by the sometimes negative incidents that pop up to distract and cause us to stumble or hobble.
It is at such times that I am reminded how priceless good friends are. A kind word, a gentle nudge towards a happier experience. little steps can go a long way. Rain may fall, but the sunshine will always return. Always.
and so, the hours passed the mind tired of wandering down rocky pathways, and returned to wander blissfully towards the captivating land of dreams. The flowers still smiled and waved from their happy beds, only this time their cheerfulness stayed to lead the way. Sleep will come and tomorrow will be another day.
I loved the gummies, anyone care to translate… (when I figure out this bilingual keyboard I will know how to do a question mark )

PL Day 18 Perfect Liberty Calendar
Look forward to what’s ahead
There is no use brooding over the past. Always try to begin each day anew with a fresh outlook.
I am relearning, to practice stillness in my every day life.
There is an art to “Being”
Good 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.
