vacations

There are days when you are blessed with the opportunity to simply wander. Today I took to country roads that I have not been on before and came across this little creek. I actually stopped the car and got out. Far from any well travelled roads, it was blissfully serene. The sun was high overhead, I could feel the warm rays on my shoulders, head, back, for a second, I wanted to run back to the car and the air con… but.. the sound of crickets and a passing butterfly changed my mind. I stayed.

Lingering on the old bridge, I was rewarded with a delightful pattern of a soft tobacco orange taupe growth. Delicate and interesting displayed against the soft and darker grays of the railing. Man made time was not important, being present in my surroundings, was all encompassing

This for me …. was a vacation.

PL calendar day 10 When you are not having fun, could it be because you are being Lazy? Sometimes you f eel blue or can’t seem to find the joy in doing anything. At times like this, just get up and move your body or work your mind to the fullest extent.

PL Precept #18 Each moment is a turning point

mystic Monday

lush, beautiful … soft, sensuous

gentle rhythms pulsate — in the tremendous

flight of imagination … that takes place

when I am drawn into that creative space

of canvas, acrylics and the artists need

to create the emotion that begs expression

all because my computer misbehaves

PL calendar day 9 It’s interesting because it’s different

Free your mind to consider other and all possibilities.

Happy start to a new week!

rust you say!

Nay it is art…

IMG_20190831_112725_resized_20190901_123149043

under the majesty of the sky

the temperament of the clouds

the treasure lay,

surrounded by a crowd of flowers

lush and green waving in the breeze

cheerfully saying hello to passersby

oh… for a closer look

checking mirrors back and front,

I pulled over to seek my treasure out

IMG_20190831_112744_resized_20190901_123148650

not gems that gleam in the sun

but a sturdy piece of artwork

that has been lovingly blessed each day

by natures wonderful expressions

(most call it weather)

set in concrete for all to see,

this piece of art has grown lovelier with each passing season

I can’t say for sure, but I would guess

that not many are struck by its beauty

or come to admire, yet pass it each day

such is life, in French there is a saying

“to each his/her own”

You see rust, you say! Lad show me the way!


PL calendar day 3

Instead of worrying, do something about it..

It doesn’t help to over think situations such as, “What if this happens?” or “Things might end up that way.”  Instead be proactive and change how you see and do things in each situation.

Door number 2

Guess who is having fun in her studio!  Silly goose me!  October is jut around the corner, I have begun my fall inventory.

Door #3


PL Precept #1    Life is art!!

Every day is a new beginning, every page will  tell a different story.  Door # 3 has a couple more pages to do, I ran out of the card page I wanted.  It will be done this week.

You have heard me say often enough- Finish what you start…  Especially on a creative art piece.  Each piece has its own feeling, its own identity, when you leave something too long, it is no longer that same vibe when you pick it up again.  You have changed.  Yes, every day, we grow, we learn, we advance in our “story”  No two days are alike.


PL calendar day 2    Live each day filled with hope

Even in those situations when you feel trapped with no way out, face every challenge with purpose and enthusiasm and you will always find a way.

Bom dia!!!!

I turned a corner and voila! The contrasts and the beauty of the sky above were too much.  I pulled over and dug out “old faithful” (Huawei)

A new day, a new month, how wonderful !  Sunday too, service at 10:00  see you all in prayer.

PL calendar day 1      Always live with world peace in your heart

Each and every one of your actions can inspire peace within your family, your community and the world around you.  This peace will eventually help lead to world peace.

Love and blessings in my heart for each and every one of you.  To you with cameras who share “captures”, a special thank you of appreciation to your talents and the cameras you use.  Appreciate all in life.

lessons – PEACE

Growing up, I remember my Mother collecting the tools she would need when she retired.  She was determined she would weave.  She also sewed, growing up in the early years before Father passed away, Mother made our clothes, pretty dresses, frocks with smocking, we were little charmers.

Upstairs she stowed her treasures, materials for sewing, wool for knitting, and the materials she would weave with.  We had boxes and boxes stored for that time when she would retire and spend her time lazily doing the things she loved.  Did I tell you she painted too.   Was a creative lady my Mother was.

When she finally did retire from her years in a Government office, away from her officer, desk and responsibilities there, guess what, she dove into her volunteering with a non profit group managing their business affairs.  She was part of a group of ladies who felt more needed to be done for seniors on low income,  They did what needed doing to have an apartment built to meet their goals.

Mother managed the building, did all that needed doing to keep it afloat. Went to meetings, volunteered with other groups, for other needs she felt were not being fully addressed.  Drove seniors for appointments, opened a tuck shop in the building she and the others in her group had now enlarged on ….She was part of Meals on Wheels.

All this to say, she never did her weaving, her sewing interested faded away, She did knit and crochet at night while she rested in front of the telly, but that was for babies in the home for unwed Mothers, blankets for the hospitals, you name it.. Mother had her hand in it.  If it was to help others, she was there with a helping hand.

She outlived most of her friends, (close ones) and others who she had know  over the years, were now, like her, too frail, age had slowed them all down.

We all do our best to live each day as best we can. If my Mother had any regrets, she never spoke of them.  My Mother and her friends were of a generation that grow up with World wars 1 and 2, they knew about scrimping, saving, and making do.  They also knew how fragile a life can be.

PL calendar day 31    Someone who is mentally prepared is strong.

Even when things look grim, if you take on the situation with determination, you will be able to make a fresh start with a positive outlook.

World peace is essential if we are to give hope to the next generation.  Love, caring, and understanding, begin within ourSelves.
