It had started to rain, small droplets fell on my windshield, I was prepared for a downpour.. but.. no, the rain stopped.. I looked over to my right and saw the tall grass and the trees with their fall colour, and couldn’t resist.. I pulled over and got out. Traffic be darned. As if on cue, the traffic trickled to zero. I was able to stand there, admire the beauty… and take in the moment without the sound of tires on pavement.
Moodie is a busy road but I was blessed with a quiet few moments, and for that I was truly grateful… it was such a refreshing and rather intoxicating moment. I had been having a busy morning, productive, but busy .. the few moments of solitude, surrounded with natures beauty… was energizing.
Let’s find the joy in everything. Are you looking for things to complain about? Let’s change our perspective and live a cheerful and joyful life.
The road was like a ribbon hugging the landscape .. the river on one side and the base of the Laurentians off to the North… It was breathtaking, I often wanted to stop, but due to the narrow old highway, with only the two lanes.. it was impossible, the solid no passing lines were very prominent. When I did dare stop, it was with emergency flashers and a quick scuttle out of the car .. off to the side of the road, and then back in to move out of the way of the endless parade of cars and trucks.
The clear sky held out for me.. the forecast had called for clouds, but Mother Nature was generous with her sunny disposition. Click on the pictures to get a better view of the scenery. =^_^=… The array of fall colour is well on its way… especially when I was well into the Laurentian tourist areas.
Good or Bad it is your mirror. Sincere expressions invite good results, but insincere expressions can lead to unexpected trouble.
I am alive and well, =^_^= I have been turning my cell off in the evenings, Yes off!… I go to bed … have one last check to make sure I have not missed something.. then hold down on button and shut down. Yay! Freedom! No, no land line. when that cell gets turned off.. I am truly in my own space, with no notifications, incoming messages, di naDO!
Be a person who can recognize the sincerity of others. When you put your whole heart into things, you will be able to notice the sincere acts of others in the subtle things they do, and appreciate them that much more.
In life this is exactly how it IS. My picture earlier showed the above formation from a different angle. If you and I stand side by side, and look at the same pile of rocks.. we will each see something different. Yet we will be together, looking at the very same sculpture. We will share that moment in time, but our memories will be different. Our interpretation of the moment will be unique. You and I… being individuals, how we interact will determine our compatibility. That is why sharing and being open to another point of view or understanding is so important. We need not agree, but at least we “listen” and are open to “possibilities”
Live today filled with enthusiasm. Life is an accumulation of the efforts you make, day by day. Live keeping in mind that “today” only comes once and live your precious life to the fullest.
Old pictures found while cleaning up.. My first base guitars. LOL.. you can see had I kept them…they would be vintage now. My Gibson on the right was a real thrill for me when I got it.. I looked for more pictures thought maybe I could find one with my knee high white leather boots… and psychedelic dress. LOL you were spared, no more pictures turned up.
You kidding. I wouldn’t know what to do if I had one now. Same as I no longer drive a stick shift. We change with the times…. I am grateful for all of my life experiences.. In PL we do our best to live in the NOW. Being present in our day to day .. means, we truly get to live each precious moment that comes our way.
No effort is ever wasted. Even if no one witnesses your actions, God is watching you. No matter how small your efforts, your Makoto (sincerity) will always be rewarded.
Be thankful at the beginning and end of each day. Each and everyone 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.

Thanksgiving service is at 7 PM. this evening 21st. If unable to attend, please take a moment at that time, to say “thank you” for all the blessings in your life.
Changing seasons, there is an anticipation in the air… what was, will pass and we will begin a new adventure. The air will carry a new crispness when it travels over land, the sky will have a cooler shade of blue. Already there is the awareness that soon the pumpkin pies will be plentiful on store shelves. Turkeys are being readied, or maybe it will be a maple syrup seasoned ham.. So much to look forward to.
We are all so unique and how we will celebrate the coming months..will be different and fun.. looking forward to the new discoveries..
It is only natural that you are different from others. Each of us has our own way of thinking and our own individual lifestyles. That’s what makes life interesting.
