Standing there on the railway ties, looking down the line, I wondered how often, a train travelled down, past were I was standing.
I had stopped to talk to the cattle on the the hill. Saw them from the road, pulled over to the side of the road and turned back. They couldn’t have cared less, who was this strange being calling to them from the fence. The horses in the top picture, were not interested in giving me the time of day either. Just because i wanted to interact with them… didn’t mean that they would be interested in dialog with me. Such is life.
The world in abstract, the sign, lured me with its emptiness, half there, I still found it beautiful.
The trees planted in a line along a now unused road, still had a sense of majesty to them. True they no longer created a wind break for the horses, in the now empty field… but they stood tall, and gave dignity to the landscape.
The two hoses checking me out, were new to the paddock having arrived just a few days earlier, to them, I was a curiosity, they still had to figure out if i would be part of their new lives.
We are all transient, some times we get to stay a little longer than others, in one place or another, the reality is… no two moments are the same.
Trains were a way to escape to distant places. Now of course, to go even further we have planes. The truth is, no matter where we go, or how many miles we put between us and yesterday, we are always still abstractly speaking, right where we always are. In our personal space. Dealing with the NOW we cannot avoid.
Have you ever felt that you live in a world, where no one really knows your name. OK they may know your name, but you are just another face in the crowd. This is a time of year, when family and friends gather to share memories of the past, and the possibilities that lie ahead.
I was reminded yesterday how fragile life can be. One moment you are working, living busy in a fast moving society. Then suddenly you “wake” to find that you are now on the other side of the street, and “life” seems to be passing you by. Sometimes by choice, and other times, ‘boom” for whatever reason, you just can’t get on or off the bus.
This is a “condition” that can happen to any of us. Rich or poor, it affects everyone, money is not what buys or determines how happy we are. The answers, solutions, they are all varied and different for every human being is unique. We all love, cry, laugh, and “feel”. Emotions are real.
The philosophy of the Church of Perfect Liberty is to help us recognize the ups and downs of everyday life, and help us understand our SELVES so that “we” can recognize what in US, needs fixing, repairing, strengthening. Truth is, we can only change ourselves.
Happiness begins from within, I’m a glutton for “happy”. Smiles and beams just thinking of how nice it is to be happy. And YOU dear reader, my heartfelt thanks to each and everyone of you, who share time with me during the day, night, weeks, and months. I love reading your thoughts, seeing your “visual expressions” you are “Beauty” within my world. thank you for all the happiness we’ve shared. I am looking forward to the sunshine of 2020 with you.
Share the beauty in you today, SMILE it is so becoming.
Almost the end of another \calendar year. Except for the fact that we will flip open a new calendar, and sign 20 instead of 19. We will still all be here, waking up, and starting a new day .. One more sleep my dears, and a new year will begin.
We can be pretty we can be merry – above all else, be safe and always remember, you are the most precious gift of all.
Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It is a way of entering into the quiet that is already there – buried under the 50,000 thoughts that the average person thinks every day . Deepak Chopra
PL calendar day 4 Good relationships begin by greeting each other.
Acts of respect and courtesy are reflections of how much we value others. Make it a point to be the first to greet your family, people at work and around the neighbourhood.
When you are present when you visit with someone, that is a gift in itself. Love always!
What happens when you have time on your hands nd you want to recycle an onion bag. I go into my workshop and play, Meet Ms Onion, she is now waiting for her transformation, when I have time to spend time with her in the “makeup” room.
Good morning everyone! How lovely to see so many smiling faces yesterday at service. Our new Hokyoshi from Brazil, Yoshizumi Terada was our master of ceremonies, when it came time to sing, we all got to enjoy Com Quem Contar with dance movements. It was a DELIGHT. Thank you Yoshi. Another Brazilian member Kaiser Lette Bueno added his voice to the song. “Andei, Andei E encontrei Oshieoya Sama, Oshieoya Sama.
Com Quem Contar has to be the most joyful song, I love it. In English the title is Who to Trust.

In the past I have used sludge from DeSerres (Tri Art) I spilled my last jar and have yet to replace it, so the above was done using alternate products found in my inventory.
To achieve a result, often requires more than one product, and when one ingredient is not available, if we are determined to get the result we are hoping for, we explore what is available, or easy access, and we experiment. It doesn’t matter if we succeed exactly as we had wanted what matters is that we do our best .. and try.
*** and *** that you are happy and cheerful while you are creating. Happiness is a state of mind. It is the journey that counts. When we are not open to every possibility around us at any given time, it could be a missed opportunity.
Seize the day, make it yours. Have a great start to a brand new week. Each day is a new canvas…Play, Explore, Live, take the initiative, be the first to smile and say hello.
The fun of starting something new, is that one never really knows what it will end up to be. what I showed you yesterday, and this today, are beginnings. Like one would sketch an idea, I am using fabric. Already when working this piece last night, I could see a glimmer of what I was NOT doing, that I think I will try when I continue playing,
When we look at a visual, it leaves an impression, that our gray cells will process in different ways, over the course of minutes, hours, days, who knows when what you saw, will reclaim a moment of your “now” to present itself in a different way.
Whatever your medium, photography, paint, ink, text, fabric, if you are expressing yourself, through a visual, the colours, patterns, shapes and textures that impressed themselves on your psyche will show up. Some colour combinations will never draw my attention, because, my “personal” makeup is drawn to shadows/light and colours that are attractive to me.
This is one of the reasons I love life, and find it so fascinating. I “see” the world in such a magical way. I loved this picture, didn’t know why till I got it home and saw it on my PC screen. When I took the picture, it was instinct. Now all I see is the wild animal preparing to chow down. =^_^=
Beginnings never have to end. Love the choices you make in a day, embrace the adventure of life. Appreciate your friends. Life IS.
