PL day 24 of Perfect Liberty calendar

Things that happen to us all have a meaning

Everything that happens to us happens for a reason.  Each and every occurrence is a chance for you to improve yourself.

Abstract art – Keeping it together.  Life happens, like the seasons, one day flows seamlessly into another, it happens.  The weather, the time of day, they just happen. Meanwhile, we (life) progress through theses changes, sailing through, at times limping, whatever, we all manage.  We do the best we can, with what we have.

Living the PL “way” means we appreciate and give thanks for all the blessings in our lives, and for the opportunities and lessons along the way.

Keep it simple, keep it real.  PL Precept #1  Life is art

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.

Happy 25th (terca-feira)to all

Andre 12.25aLife is lived in segments.  Remember when the phone was thought to be the greatest of inventions.  A voice from across the miles, would bring cheer, maybe only once a year. At Xmas, everyone would gather around the phone, and wait eagerly to speak to the relative, or friend who lived far away.  It brought everyone close.

What time was spent with someone else was precious, not taken for granted, it was appreciated and remembered well into the years to come.

Spend today enjoying the sunshine, create your own.  If you skimp on a painting, then your painting will not turn out well.

PL calendar day 25, There is no reason to hold back

If you skimp on the paint, then your painting will not turn out well.  Live a fulfilled life every day by utilizing things, money, your knowledge or energy to their fullest

the art of nothing

IMG_154711.11

While waiting for the paint to dry, I decided to take a picture, of my nothing page.  I do a lot of nothing, that is what speaks to me the most.

I will do a whole book of pages, when the mood strikes, of “nothing” art.  When I am done, I will have my very own book of “Nothing” for the month of December 2018  I ask you, What will you do for yourself, to remind you of this coming month of December.

Our thought for today (PL calendar, day 11) was to be thankful for who we are…

Tomorrow, PL Day Calendar day 12 –  Carry out what you believe in

Once you have prepared everything to the best of your ability, seize any opportunity that comes your way and take action without hesitation.  Express yourself to the fullest.


I learned a long time ago, that “nothing”was not always easy to express.  I used to call it abstract art, or expressions.  To call it art, to some was stretching it.  You dear friends, who have been on this journey with me, know that this is not the first time, you hear me speak of “nothing”   If you recall I  took pictures one summer of nothing.

All this to say, if it feels right, and it is to be your very own, create your memory your way. A picture, a doodle, story, whatever method choose to for your expression, if done with Makoto (sincerity of intention) it will be great.  There are no failures, only experiences.

book cover 11.4.18

Bonjour, Bom dia, greetings, Sunday 4th. November

Words are wonderful, words can do so much, however, as I wrote about my adventure to and from Montreal the other day, my thoughts were in colours.  Try as I might, I wanted somehow to express the emotions of colours in a more tangible way. I have a canvas on the go too, but am not ready to show you yet.  I am on stage 3 or 4 with this book cover. This will be my November December art journal, or Junk journal, whatever, which ever it is a book I will use to play “art” in.

That means that I will play with it, use it, daily or when the time is there for me, to interact with it.. and allow it to become. =^_^=

When we love what we do, or are doing, it may have its “opportunities” but we will creatively enjoy each step of the way, learning all the way.

PL calendar day 4   Enthusiasm will make things interesting

When you put your whole heart into what you are doing, you will begin to notice many important details and your creativity will blossom.

club challenge

Once upon a time2

Good morning everyone…

A couple of weeks back I was reminded that the club challenge, or “theme” this year was Once Upon a Time.  As you all know I am rather occupied these days, getting to know first hand living with cancer in my LIFE.  However, the idea was one that stuck with me for a for a few days,  & I found that I was gathering up “pieces”  in my “studio”.

In PL you know there is Precept, # 19, BEGIN ONCE YOU PERCEIVE

I reflected on how once the bathroom was a very “NEW” concept in a lot of homes.  there was a time when people used an “out house”  Some were very primitive, but they were a place where one could have privacy when needed.

When people could afford the indoor plumbing, it was often something that had to be fit into an existing home.  Reinvention of space, closets were repurposed, or a larger room if the family could afford to do so was partitioned for the new plumbing.

Toilet, sink, was for the most part what went in, some homes could accommodate a bath tub, but not often,  Families of 4,5,6 even more, lived in small 1 and 2 bedroom flats. The war-time houses were usually small two,three bedroom bungalows. Kitchen, living room, small bathroom and  two bedrooms.

The bathroom was really the only room where when you went in, you were alone, at least for a short time.

Then came the telephone, it was only available here and there, when you got one in your home, it was attached to a wall, or smack in the living room.. no such thing as  much privacy,.  Then the extensions came along, and you could put a phone in another room, the younger generation would try to pull the cord into the bathroom so they could have   conversations with their friends without being overheard by siblings and/or adults

Dad got to read his newspaper in quiet, till the room was needed by someone else. Once upon a time the bathroom was a very “special” place.  Now in modern homes, in today’s society, everyone wants their own bathroom, and guess what,  it is only used for “immediate” needs (like the outhouses of old) and vacated.  Usually the bathrooms are cold, efficient, sterile and lacking in any “family” character or warmth.  They are functional!

Thus my contribution to “Once Upon a Time” was conceived and put into a visual expression.

Life is ever changing, roll with the changes, all while trying to retain the art of  “caring” (sharing)

being attentive

april 14Pl Calendar day 15

Being Attentive Makes life more enjoyable

Live life paying careful attention to every detail, be it big or small.  By doing so, you will be able to experience the subtle joy in things.


My studio mate.  She patiently sits waiting to observe, or comment on the goings on in the studio.  Lately she is watching me try my  hand at acrylic “pouring”.. I am working on being attentive, trying to learn a new technique.  Still not sure how I feel about it, but that is what life is, trying something new, if it clicks with me, I’ll pursue it, if not.. I’ll move on.  I  am practicing the art of “letting go”

How about you, tried anything new recently? Are you engaged, attentive in your day-to-day activities…..   …….. Here is wishing you a wonderful Sunday.

Oyashikiri
