chasing the Mad Hatter

Dentelle comes out to play 4.1.17_008.png

It all started out innocently enough. I heard about a place where there was a possibility I could run into, or meet up with the Mad Hatter, and if really lucky maybe Alice herself.   had to crawl through a door to do that, and fall down a big hole, but I was game.

Once there what had started out easy enough, was proving to be a big confusing, there were no road signs, in fact, there had been a note earlier in the game saying I should follow the path.  And it would be more fun if I had my settings at night.. but you can see, I wasn’t that brave.. I kept to travel in the daylight.

I went in to explore the first building I found, it was empty, but fully furnished I was able to warm myself by a roaring fire.  I wasn’t tempted to rest on the bed.. but I did sit a spell on a chair in what appeared to be a bedroom with a lot of books.

When I found my way out of the big spooky house, I sat for awhile hoping that I would be given a sign, or someone would come by… no one came.  I did meet a guard at the entrance to the red queen’s palace, but she was no where to be seen.  I dared sit on her throne.

I made my way over hills, and through a huge valley of coloured mushrooms, I could hear activity, but didn’t see anyone.  When I came across the tea party, no one was there, all the desserts were out, and the tea still hot, but not a soul in sight.

The windmill was beckoning with its welcoming lights at the door, before calling it a night, I thought I go explore.  Sigh.. a woman’s work is never done.. I had to mend and sew without any proper light before I could go to bed.

Meanwhile, while I was out exploring, Little Q was at home enjoying a night by the fire, with not a thought in her head to leave her cosy home

No two people use “time” in the same way.  The trick is to find what is “right for you, and make time to do it.  Every day we get to create our own “chapter and verse”, it was a grand week-end.  Now, we have a whole week ahead. Happy start of the week everyone.

new Zealand, Abel Tasminclear path ahead

nothing in the way

great, you can’t wait to wander

into the great beyond

you  stop to ponder

what to take with you

while you re away

a whole day just to explore

how grand a plan is that

almost out the door

oh no, the phone** is ringing

do you keep going or do you answer

what news could the call be bringing

6cc1917f6da17c0a9d80b197cad12c52

you could just keep going out the door

after all, a few seconds later,

you wouldn’t have heard that phone ring

some days, you have to keep going

if the call is important, they will call back

there are times, when

you really really have to put YOU first

we forget, that we are not infallible

or we think we might miss out on something

give thanks for your blessings

live each moment

YOU are all so very precious to me.

walking in a daze

So much to see, so much to do, there are times when it feels like one is visiting Alice in wonderland.  Only we aren’t sure how we got there, or just what to do next.  It happens, you are still being social, getting things done, but somehow you have lost the connection to your modem.

You know something is amiss, just can’t put your finger on it. We’ve all heard the expression, “one door closes, another opens”..  Sometimes it just isn’t obvious where that other door is.  Some doors are not what we expected, but then that is the beauty of life isn’t it.  To grow and develop our knowledge base, we have to explore beyond our known borders.

Is today a day we will open a door, or will we admire the door and keep walking.  Do we lean towards doors with history, or do we wait for that one door that will beckon. ???

Admittedly some doors are well boarded up, so do we really want to go inside.  In my world the answer would be, probably not, I tend to live in the moment, and going back isn’t an option for me.  I have discovered that life will bring me the lessons that I need to relearn, perhaps in a different format, but I recognize the lesson.  Maybe not at once, but at a given moment the light bulb goes on, and I just know, I’ve been in this space and time before.  Perhaps the players are different and the location, however the lesson is one that I’ve faced before.

PL Precept # 12   Everything has a way according to its Name

When I hit a phase of walking in a daze, I “Let Go” and just try to slow down so that I can regroup.  In the car while going to the gym, instead of going to the one closest to me, I took a left and drove to the one further away.  This meant driving several miles out of my way, but on open road. Driving can be therapeutic.

This is what I heard when pushed the play button – it made a difference in my mood, and set the pace for the rest of the day.

Choreograph your day, your way!

Mosaics

rabbit mosaic by Doreen A Smaligirl

White Rabbit 1-b by Doreen A Smaltigirl on Flickr.

 Mosaics – how time-consuming a real work of love.  Not something I would attempt. Nor do I always feel an appreciation for the craft.  Seeing this piece on a rabbit running, looking at his time piece, reminded me of the Alice in Wonderland story and the Mad Hatter.  To achieve this delightful piece of art, the artist had to first visualize what  he/she wanted to achieve.  The many hours (days,nights, even weeks) would have been spent putting it all together.

So it is for many of the projects we begin in life that are part of our own “make over”.  There isn’t a day goes by where someone I know isn’t doing something  or preparing something for … when???  If I do this now I’ll have time to do XYZ  later.  Its called planning ahead. Me, I no longer maintain that activity in my “top drawer”   I don’t really know when this “habit” changed, somewhere along the way, unconsciously it went down to a “when I get to it” drawer.

This is another craft that requires attention to detail, planning and patience.  I look at this and my mind is in awe of the time and the focus that this artist had to have had to complete this piece.  My kudos to both creators of the works shown in this blog today.  My hat is off to both of you.

My creative level today leans towards scrambled eggs.  I kid you not…

 I was late, I was late

for a very important date

 you were not forgotten !

it was only a question of when

finally, the moment came

 happily my enthusiasm hadn’t waned

I may get behind

but YOU dear God, are always

ever present in my mind

amen
