Sometimes the urge to use my camera is just more than I can stand… I can’t be the only one in the world addicted to the sound that shutter click. You can see it was a bright, sunny morning. Alas, I had an errand to run, and church was at 10 a.m. soooo.. camera got to stay home.
Reminder, we have service on Dec. 1. Wednesday 10:a.m. and then Sunday 5th. December, will will have a special memorial service, in lieu of regular Sunday service. It is the anniversary on the passing of the 3rd Founder.
Be careful about saying “It’s probably good enough.” Wholeheartedly do what you notice, when and how you notice it.
Before I go on and cover this up or add to it, I want to share with you what eye shadow from the dollar store and nail polish can do. (mixed media abstract)
We can travel or visit the same places, see the same things, i.e. areas of a physical space, but never is it ever the same as the last time we visited. Wait for it…. because nothing stays the same. =^_^= the only constant in life is change.
Today at Chapman Mills, the leaves have already begun to change, small changes, here and there, but change they are.
Face each moment, each place with a fresh outlook. I you handle a situation with preconceived notions or prejudices, your judgment will be clouded. Take on each situation with a blank slate, as if seeing it for the first time.

As an artist, this is an important reminder for me. There is an artist in all of us. Face each situation, opportunity, challenge with a creative mind. =^_^=

Good Morning, of course there is another version, but I’m showing you three, having done so by rotating the canvas. Our problems, challenges in life are not on canvas, we can’t just turn them around and visually inspect what is before us, but believe me, they are as complex and full of surprises as a canvas is to an abstract artist.
How will you see your day today, how will you deal with the many and varied opportunities that will appear before you? Will you even see half of them? I know some of my readers are familiar with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, since I’ve had occasion to talk to you about him before. He was a big name on everyone’s lips when the Beatles first took up with him, and wanted to learn more about his philosophies.
Today, I doubt if you said his name, many would know who you were speaking of. He filled ballrooms, coliseums, everyone one wanted to learn to meditate. It was fashionable. How many meditate today on a daily basis? It is like asking the question, do you pray every day…….. Personal questions, smiles, keep the answer to yourself… but think about it.
We are bombarded daily with the goings on around the world. We all want “change’ in some form or another… How many of you stay away from the word “love” or if you use it, keep it in the “social” general greeting part of your vocabulary. I personally don’t know anyone who has not been touched by “love” in their lives. some have the scars to prove it. (shame the word scar is associated with the word, but there you have it) With love comes pain, one seems to follow the other, like rain follows the sun.. and vice versa.
Make today a different day. Instead of doing the same old thing, be creative and do things to improve your day.
Seeing is what makes life interesting No music to distract, only the visual. Make of it what you will, for my expression is done. The thought came, I executed it, now I too sit back and see it for the first time. This was the 24th. the next photo is of what followed on the 28th. Wait. no. I will post 28 tomorrow, so not to distract from the 24th.
The number 8 is considered a very lucky number. The year of the Rat will be auspices for many. I see a dragon frolicking.. hmmm a lot to take in.
Good or bad, it is your mirror. Sincere expressions invite good results, but insincere expressions can lead to unexpected trouble.
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.

“Always there is much to see, and always, it is where we look, that we see what we take in, yet the picture is always so much more. Q “
Good morning, look I am up and awake, maybe not yet raring to go, but I am getting there. A change in my routine, and voila, still up, fed the dogs, making breakfast. Hey! (very Canadian) just like the good old days. =^_^=. Looks like I will still make my exit from the house to run errands at about the same time. Wow I am learning first hand, when you role with change, it can be exhilarating.
Use any result, good or bad, as a stepping stone. A;; outcomes, whether positive or negative are important experiences. Let’s use them wisely for our future progress.
My Mother used to say, an itching palm means you will be favoured with $ and/or something pleasant. YAY. if I am not to sleepy from the allergy meds, it will be fun. Another Mother memory is she said ear lobes can grow longer when you age. Mine have!! Message to self, you still have lots to learn.
PL calendar day 9 It is interesting because it’s different
Even if someone totally disagrees with you or does things differently you may learn something from them. Avoid getting trapped in the mindset, “This is the way it has to be,” and free your mind to consider other possibilities.
My husband used to tell me that saving 50% was not a big deal, he would be more impressed if I learned to save 100% .. Subtle … you think!! I am still working on this one.
