interesting?

the ground is still very wet in areas… this part of the conservation forest is so beautiful

It’s easier to adapt to something when we find it interesting. No matter how enjoyable a situation is, a slight change in our attitude can make it boring. Let’s face any situation with curiosity and enthusiasm

The trees, are plentiful, the ground is boggy in places, the roots don’t go down that deep . in the winter, with the cold freeze, the changing temperatures, trees fall over… limbs break, they land wherever .. sometimes I wonder how they end up where they do.. but . they do end up across paths, some are bigger than others, some have lain there for a long time and they are in various stages of returning to the earth.

My frustration with my self.. is that I love to spend time wandering therefore I encounter deliquent limbs branches, stumps etc. that for some reason end up across a path, or parts of the limb are obstructing easy movement in some areas..AND I without thinking bend over and lift/move them out of the way. Or I see that the way something has fallen or rolled down an incline is hindring or fallen on new growth, of say a fern or other ground cover that is seeking to reach up into the new day.

I forget that my left/knee and hip are still recovering from a serious “strain” that occurred in the fall.. and my rib is still healing… my body was very vocal last night, Today no walking the trails. The “wee” ones will have to wait till tomorrow for my visit. =^_^=

Tomorrow is Ancestors’ Day, there will be a ceremony at 10 a.m. in all PL churches across the world, enabling us to express our gratitude for the love and virtues of our ancestors and those who have touched our lives with their love/guidence.

It is by daily walking through this wonderland that I am learning of all the many species of birds and wildlife that share it with me See all the new growth, I marvel at the progress it makes . I get to see it push its way throught the carpet of leaves and other matter that is decaying, reaching up into the morning light, I am inspired and filled with awe.

lying in the sun

I admit to being a lazy one today. I got to the beaver pond, and decided to sit down for awhile and wait to see if the beaver(s)would come out. The sun was warm, there was no one around, the wooden planks were so inviting, I took off my padded vest folded it to make a headrest.. and… yup. I lay down right there. Stayed over to the side of the boardwalk so others could get by.. but made myself comfortable, stretched out.. and just let the sun work its magic.

The quiet of the day was soothing. Birds calling, even saw my first butterfly of the season, Today in PL, we celebrated the Day of Peace. Welcome a new month.

Every day is a new beginning. PL Precept # 18 Each moment is a turning Point.

Thanks Dan for reminding me about the beavers.. photo by Dan Cadieux (link to his site is below)

Till soon everyone..

love always

Love is a feeling, love is an emotion, love is so many things at different times of ones’ life. When I wander the woodlands, I am happy. The further along I get, the more drawn in I am to the beauty of the land around me. You have noted I often will end a visit with “love always”. Moments like the above when I stop moving, and allow the environment to surround me with its beauty, and song. I am content, I feel a sense of Oneness with my surroundings. I feel love.. Knowing such moments, allows me to love freely.

The sun shining through the trees, glistening over the water surface. Awesome.

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..

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

into the woods I go.. till soon.

bramble

Finding my way through bramble, brush,& fallen trees, was a challenge I gave myself today See the small opening, once the vegetation gets going, this is barely visible. I thought I could follow the animal trails and explore beyond the initial growth. forgetting that the animals using the trails are on all fours and much shorter than my human 5.3″ frame. I had to push aside the branches with thorns and duck under the bigger branches that wouldn’t push aside.. Curiosity drove me forward.

I did come across a small clearing that at one time someone or persons had tried to put up some kind of shelter. the picture on the right, you can see there is a shelf of some kind.. not sure if someone perched on it, or it was used for ??. There was no clear access to this area, not now anyway… so how long ago this area was used and what it was used for, is unknown to me. I spent time rummaging around looking for clues, but if there were any, they eluded me.

When I finally headed out back to the more “civilized” part of the woods, I found I was not where I thought I was, and had wandered off course, I could only get to the main “path/road” by crossing over or through water. and then making my way up a rather steep incline. How About that.. I had wanted to explore, well… hello unexpected…. I tried going one way, following the water’s edge.. looking for a place but I was blocked by really dense branches, shrubs etc. I turned to retrace my steps.. and saw a lone figure coming along the upper road (the one I was trying to get to).. hello I called.. and surprise, the voice that answered was a friend…(who had just texted me, cuz she saw my car in the parking lot)

When there is a need, the Universe “answers” – sometimes two heads are better than 1…. I made it out, and then went on to walk with her for awhile… There is always yin/yang it was a wonderful experience but all the hacking through brush and hiking over rough terrain jarred my ribs again.. – smile you are on camera!!!!!! tsk tsk some people just never learn……would I do it again… yes….. life is G O O D, dragons appear everywhere.

Praying before taking action changes the outcome. Have clear wishes and do your best. Then something new will open up for you.

cedar waxwings

When you are standing in the pouring rain with just your cell phone, you get the shadows, my thanks to the donated photo that I found on the web by Bob Zeller. The birds were unconcerned about me, they were enjoying the rain and the day…

Inspired me to stand and just enjoy their company. The rain came down harder, I was already wet, and enthralled with their company, it was an amazing experience … I knew it was raining, the drops landed and fell around me… the woodland was alive with the song of these birds .. the jays/crows/ravens calling over head as they flew over, the woodpeckers tapping out their morning “groove” as they pecked away at their chosen tree.

There was a moment where the rain, the birds, the surroundings all just became ONE with time. I have no idea how long I was there, it didn’t matter, I was totally engaged.

Make today a memorable day. Let’s try to put our whole heart into whatever we say or do, as our unique signature.

Yes, I will be going out again this morning to retrace my steps. I know we can’t go back in time, but I can “chase” another “moment” that will become a memory worth remembering.

Treasure each moment…

Is it just me… can anyone else see the bear’s face?

No two people will ever see the same thing even if they are standing in the same place, same time of day, and are both approx. the same height etc. I was busy being mindful, taking my time, walking slowly, and had almost gone past this stump when something made me look towards it. The forest was quiet, there were woodpeckers being busy, and a few crows calling back and forth, but otherwise, it was an uneventful morning..

Then I felt rather than saw the bear.. it took me a few minutes to realize that the energy was coming from the stump,… no matter how I looked at it, where I stood, the face was there looking back at me. I didn’t have my Nikon.. so used my cell. I think the grizzly is still there. ??

Treasure each moment in time… Life is a continuation of “now” Treasure each and every moment as it comes, so that you can live your life as fully as possible without regrets. PL 2016.10
