Dolls and life

3 friends, Vanilla,ChenMay,Kit

Once upon a time.  Remember the stories we were read when we were children. I don’t recall too many of them now, but I do seem to recall they all had happy endings.  Lately I’ve been introduced to the new dolls that are on the market, perhaps I shouldn’t say new, because they have been around, they are “new” to me.

It has been a delight to discover that there are many different cultures represented in the choices, however one does have to search them out.  I found one  the other day that had been discarded, she was no longer “perfect”

Someone, had given her a very bad haircut, and she had lost patches of her hair.  It was a sad face that looked back at me when I found her in the store.  She came home for a spa day, the next day I took her in and the kind lady pierced her ears for me.  I had thought to take her to the doll club meeting earlier this week.  She was very happy with her new look, unfortunately it didn’t work out that she was able to accompany me to the meeting, but I have promised her an outing soon.,

sitting pretty with her doggie 6.11.17At the doll club meeting, I learned a lot about some of the work that is being done with dolls, especially in health care.  Dolls are brought in to visit Alzheimer patients, with heart warming results.  There was also talk about organizing a tea party for young girls and boys, who would like to  revisit a social custom that many no longer share or participate in.

I myself learned that my new “young lady” was the right “doll” to introduce to others, the fact that we all go through different “phases” in our lives, and sometimes, we are left with visible signs of our “trauma”.. that doesn’t change who we are, we are still beautiful in our own unique way. And more often than naught, we are a better, and stronger person for the  challenges we faced and overcame.

I see dolls in a totally different way now as an adult.  I am amazed at how dolls have changed (varieties) over the years, yet, now as always, they still infect us with a love that transcends age.

Share a hug today.  Reintroduce a doll into your life =^_^=

chasing a dream

There was a time

when life was simple,

we met someone special

we had our first kiss

and we thrilled at the possibilities

of a fairy tale life, sure that

our prince/princess would be the

catalyst, to the story book

ending of …and they lived

happily ever after.

I thought of this  quote before I decided to share’ –  I had to ponder if it was true, in my mind, did I think it relevent to what I wanted to say.  I know not everyone likes to dance. But to those of us who do..  who enjoy the passion and exhilaration of being  held and masterfully led through an active art form, or  to simply workout  and exercise  the body.with a partner. It matters if your partner is in harmony with your unspoken rhythm. I liken it to being a passenger on a road bike (motorcycle) how the two bodies have to be in sync for the ride to be smooth and effortless.

See this landscape, the person there, might have thought they were alone, but they weren’t were they, someone took the picture.  Even if they were unaware of the photographer, he/she was there.  We are never really alone, we sometimes feel alone, but the reality there are people all around.  Often like us, just waiting to connect with another human being.

Today I got this picture of the cookie monster.. in yesterday’s blog I used Oscar the grouch for the cookie monster, in sharing his observation, this person connected with me personally, it told me I don’t sit and write here alone in my office, friends read and even if they don’t always write, like or say something… they are there.  We need not chase a dream, the connection between us is in our hearts.  PL Precept #7  Everything exists in Relativity.

Isolation

X @ inspire park_001After reading what another blogger had shared with me via her blog, I meditated on what she said, and what others wrote.  Topic was that of isolation, Isolation brings to mind a couple of adjectives   When I was in hospital once, due to the physical  symptoms  my body was having after eating at a restaurant I was placed in isolation, (quarantine).  This meant that I was set apart from others on the floor, but I was not alone, although the walls around me meant I didn’t get to see anyone else on the floor, I knew there were other patients on the ward.  I was never really alone either because there was always  a nurse or technician hovering or doing something to me or around me.

When I traveled during the time in my life when I was going to various places on work, or assignments,, I did so on my own. Stayed in cities where I knew no one. In theory I was alone, yet I was always surrounded by people, so is that alone?  When speaking at a large gathering, addressing an auditorium full of people, I would stand alone at the podium, that was not isolation, but I was apart from the crowd.  Words and perspectives are interesting aren’t they. In my friend’s case she was talking about her life and family, and her first hand experience with the world of autism.  Please see  the following link to read Ann’s blog  autism. http://annkilter.com/2014/03/05/battling-isolation/

Some of us make the choice to live in seclusion, or to be private, other times the Universe, places us in situations where the isolation is not of our own making, still we are here for a reason, the key to understanding and achieving is to “listen” “learn” and take the next step,   There is a time for action and a time for rest. We are NEVER alone, we may choose to think we are, but ALWAYS we are connected to the GOD/Tao .  GOD is LIFE.

!cid_2_1770918552@web160903_mail_bf1_yahooYou may not know the person walking beside you, or coming towards you, but he/she is walking here on earth for a purpose, you may be different, but you are still part of Nature.  Whatever your reality, someone else is sharing it with you.  Reach out and touch someone today, say I love you and enjoying how good it feels.  S M I L E   its catching!!!!     Blessings today, tomorrow and always.    Oyashikiri
