NH moment

P1000717 (1)

New Hampshire on an early morning walk.  It is May, I’m taking my time enjoying the fresh morning air, not thinking about anything else but the moment.

P1000716

Only now am  getting to see some of the pictures I took during our time away. A holiday is time for me to wander, some pictures were taken with my Lumix, others with my iPhone.  Slowly I will get to them, for tonight, I wanted to drop in and say hi… I’ve missed you all.  It wasn’t till we were on our way back today that I gave in and bought an Acer Notebook, sorry to all you Apple peeps, I simply can’t work away on an iPad like I can a Windows/PC…

P1000718 (1)

You won’t see a lot of sunshine, just a lot of fresh mountain air, and the fresh new buds of new sprouts. When the windows were open we could hear the crystal clear water cascading down the mountain side through the gorge.  Looking out from out two side windows, all we saw was the drop down to the forest floor.  Already the bears have started to stir, one guest who stayed in one of the back “cabin/rooms” saw a bear wandering in the wooded area, in back of the Inn a few days before we arrived.  We were advised not to let our dogs off leash or unattended.

We did drive down one day into the southern part of NH, where the bigger cities are, we didn’t stay long, a few hours. that was all we needed before we high tailed it back up north into the National Forest area, where we were staying,  Holidays are never long enough, but, we know we will go back, and really, I missed being home, and chatting with you.  Go figure. I love my time with you.  Makes me feel good.  Now I’ll be able to catch up on what you all have been doing.

It is late in the day, but to all the Mother’s out there, Happy Mother’s Day.

a new week

 

What is this?p1000437

A picture gone rogue. Even with the best intentions, there are times, even when we do everything “supposedly” right… We don’t get what we were expecting.  Happens.

Do we worry, stress about it.. Of course not, we simply either do it again, or move on to something else.

p1000319

That works when we are dealing with objects.  When we are dealing with another person, or plural, people,  redoing something isn’t always easy peasy.  In PL, Perfect Liberty, we see each new day, as a new canvas.  the possibilities are endless.

I enjoy a good moan and groan, just like anyone else, but it is a moment in time, I move on.  that is the beauty of  Living in Perfect Liberty (Precept #21)  We are given the tools, to help us maneuver the  challenges we face on a day-to-day basis.

Perfect Liberty is unique in its way of offering personal guidance to members.  We are all so different, with our own personalities and characteristics.  Through consultations given by PL ministers members receive personal guidance tailored to their individual situations.

I already know that I plan on a wonderful new week.  Each night is about having a good sleep so that I can begin my new “adventure”

Smiles and waves, how you doing today? how has it been so far? Had your morning brew yet?  Blessings… have a super grand day, doing whatever it is you need or want to do.

country roads

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

There are times, when we are simply on a road, going nowhere in particular, just going.  Sometimes roads are long and winding, other times, they simply are a cleared piece of land that cuts through a woodland, hillside, or acres of farmed land.  Before it was the norm to have air conditioning in a car, we would drive with the windows open, experiencing the highs and lows of the ambience around us.  Our senses were alert to all the world around us, including the dust that swirled around the car on hot lazy days, pebbles hitting the side of the car, the manure in the fields.  We were bombarded with a myriad of sights,sounds and smells.  We looked around more, we took in everything around us.

We took the tracks that led to places that were simply “lost in time”…   When we stopped the world came alive with different sounds, and the blissful renderings of a countryside alive with the sounds of nature gave us a rhapsody of “quiet”

Good day, Bom dia, Goedendag

abandoned 2The start of another work week, you find yourself doing the same drive, at the same pace, and really not getting anywhere fast.

Is today, another day, or is it like yesterday, ho hum, if you turn the radio on, already they’ll be playing songs that are all about snow and Xmas themes.

Did you bring your thermos of coffee/tea?  What is it that is keeping the traffic at such a slow pace.

You realize no matter how you fret, or how you moan and groan, it is simply going to happen the same way every day, unless you change your pattern.

Maybe go a different route,it could be a bit of a round about way, but the scenery will be different, and hey

since the traffic is not all going the same way, lane after lane, just maybe

you’ll get to work on time,  bonus, you’ll have time to leisurely make your way to your desk

habits and patterns are hard to break

we do get attached, some of us .. no matter how long it takes us, we are determined to take that fast lane with every other driver headed into the city

Try doing something different today, just for fun, see if you can do it… with a happy start it can be done,

when we take the challenge to do something different, we are often surprised at just how easy it becomes to find that doing something new, is rewarding.  Letting go of tired and old habits, can and will leads us to a whole new way of seeing life.   New experiences, new people, and new adventures.

When we follow our dreams, and walk unknown roads, we grow, we are happier, the seeds we sow, will reap rewards.

a dream moment

Dreams do come true.  Yes they really really do.  For years I have read about, and seen at a distance vintage bikes, I’ve hollered stop as we drive down a highway when I see an old abandoned, car, truck or jeep…if its been restored, it gets captured (picture taken) for my personal gallery.

IMG_20151014_170141167Was I dreaming.. no… look a 1950 Buick super Riviera 56r design by the great Harley Earl head of General Motors industrial design. (info provided by Mark Hill)  You know I was out of the truck and heading for it with my cell ready to grab a picture or two.

IMG_20151014_170043403_TOP IMG_20151014_170057049

Look at the wheels, the generous use of chrome… Mark has not re touched it, the paint, everything is as it was when he got it.  It was living in Canada for a while, but like a good pedigree dog, when the  new owner had to part with it, it came back home to Mark.

IMG_20151014_165950134

While I was busy being totally enthralled by this charmer, a woman drove up who just happened to be Mark’s Mother, while we chatted, she told me that Mark’s main love was old vintage bikes, i.e Indians.  Well this little China doll went into instant heart flutters.  It was like the adrenalin went into overdrive.

Ladies and Gents, I have to tell you nothing could have  made me “thrill” as much as being in a working machine shop, the vacuums the polisher, that smell of oils, grease, and waxes used  when working the metal,  All my senses were activated I just drank in the surroundings,  I arrived at a quiet time, there was that happy silence that fills the garage when the machines aren’t working, dust is settling, and the mechanics are taking a break.  I was in my own personal heaven.

Bikes are shipped from all over the world to be worked on by this man, in this shop.  All the bikes are lovingly cared for and maintained by their owners.. they want the best for their treasures..  Thus the reason they get sent to Mark.

Dreams do come true, when you least expect them to.  I saw this beauty and I wanted more. I followed my heart’s whispered (ok shout out) plea….. and stopped to take a closer look…  what I found by listening to the inner voice was “magic”     My adventure continued when I took the next step,  I knocked and opened  an unknown closed-door and found myself in a wonderland.

Ok not everyone shares my passion for vintage vehicles, but you get the message .. it is important to listen to your inner voice, and 2, open doors, step outside the box, you never know who you will meet, or what you will find.

special thanks to Mark’s Mother and his friends for making my visit a special one. The dog was a beauty too!  Unfortunately it just couldn’t compete with the machines and metal.
