Acceptance

These are the locks next to the once called Chateau Laurier in downtown Ottawa. Since forever, I remember these locks, I would see them every day coming into Ottawa when riding public transportation, back… when =^_^=

I don’t get to see them now, I seldom drive that way, however they are still there, and so is the hotel, only now it has another name. Change is a constant in life, it happens. Sometimes we are in the thick of it all, and other times, for some reason, even though we are aware it is happening, it isn’t in our day to day…. so it isn’t till you happen to drive that way that you rediscover the “place” At that moment you often feel the past and present come together in a “wow” moment.

My husband proposed to me at the Chateau, in that second courtyard, as we overlooked the river and the historic landscape around us. It was enchanting. I was a princess, courted by her prince. It is a cherished moment, one I relived today, when I found the sealed envelope they gave me with his wedding ring, and I Ching piece he always wore. (after a funeral, this is what they do) I had completely forgotten…I had a past, and present moment that flashed through me when I found it in a drawer while looking for papers that I needed. =^_^=

First, Accept everything.... Life is filled with moments, sometimes happy and at times inconvenient. It is important to first accept every situation as it occurs and try to accept and understand it for what it is.

First Accept everything!

Life is filled with moments, sometimes happy and at tines inconvenient. It is important to first accept every situation as it occurs and to try to accept and understand it for what it is.

pleasure – quilting

When we apply ourselves to making something we enjoy, it is a pleasure.  The results are rewarding.  When we apply the same philosophy into any of our choices, life is good.  There were “difficult” moments, for example when my sister decided that she didn’t like her first choice of threads when doing the finishing, she ripped out and redid by hand in smaller stitches with a smaller needle and different thread, to get the results she wanted.  Voila, a beautiful and happy quilt.  Was it hours of work, or pleasure.. =^_^=

Let’s find the good in others and praise them.  All people have good qualities and bad qualities.  Focus on the good in others and applaud them every chance you get.

Reminder – August 1st is Kyososai  (Founders’Day)   service at 7PM

innocence in art

anna June 23

When we are young and begin our journey, art is a creative outlet.  A way of expression. Young eyes, will replicate with whatever medium they have on hand and will delight us with their drawings and insights.

As we travel the road of life, our thoughts and views take on different forms of expression.  This drawing was done by my 6 year old niece, seeing it, I was filled with memories of the days where I lay with my pencils, crayons and rescued papers, designing what I knew would be the gowns and dresses of the “fashion” world.

What happens to our dreams, do they actually go away, or do they blossom into an assortment of different colour and shapes.  I still think of drawing and using fashion when I sit to “express”  my thoughts, the key word being -think-  that disappears the minute I see a blank page/canvass.  My innocence has had years of living to change its perceptions.

PL Precept #1   Life is Art,   friends, go with the flow, the only constant in life is change.  Life your life to the fullest, appreciate and be grateful for all the comes your way.  Growing pain and all.  You “art” will shine and continue to be uniquely yours.

torn from a journal page

a memory from another day

I sit wondering

just where my thoughts lay

on that other day so far away

where eyes that seem to drown in  sadness

were what spoke to me

while I was pondering

that day is long gone

I have long moved on

still, that was me,

at that time and place

I like it, but thankfully, today is another day

I am headed out to explore what comes my way

YOU are in my heart

today and always

alexandria 8,4,aGood morning everyone, bom dia..

I was out of the city most of the week, travelling the roads…Gone are the fields of green, I was met with beautiful skies, that reflected the cooler temperatures, and the fields of white.  Interesting how the sky actually looks bluer and the clouds whiter when below is a blanket of crystal white snow.

I love that the world is constantly providing us with an abundance of new vistas, opportunities and challenges.  Letting go of what was, is an ongoing process of growth and new experiences.

PL calendar day 24 – Listen and See with careful attention and accept each other

Focus your “eyes” and “ears” towards the expression of others without any pre conceived notions.  Then you will be able to see their true intentions.

Life is what we make of it.  The choices are always ours.

Oyashikiri

Every new day is a blessing, each exchange with a friend, is a double blessing, for often through the eyes of our friends, we see a part of ourselves.     Q
