Sumac

Sumac is a beautiful plant, I tried to grow it once, it is hardy in our area, however it is also very aggressive. I thought it would be nice in an area of the property, but soon had to start digging it out. It grew and grew and grew.. all over… Everywhere!

In other areas of the world Sumac is cultivated and used as a herb, spice, tea, it is considered to have many health benefits as well. From my past experience with it.. I now enjoy it when I go on walks, or come across it in my travels while hiking.. The desire to have it in my personal space, has long gone.

My experience with the Sumac is much like some of my other “encounters/experiences” while progressing along on this road of “life” Some experiences I explored and moved on.. and others I have retained in my “memory bank” and bring out from time to time to reflect on how the experience enriched my life.

Begin your day with appreciation. Welcome each new day with renewed appreciation, and step forward with a feeling of World Peace in your heart.

Always be cheerful, happy and good humored. When you make an effort to be cheerful and happy, you will naturally begin to feel that way.

Today this moment

Treasure each moment in time. Life is a continuation of “NOW” Treasure each and every moment as it comes, so that you can live your life as fully as possible without regrets.

I stood on an old solid wood bridge that spanned this little gurgling waterway.

One direction led past the old homestead, and the other, wandered down into the countryside.

In the moment of my being there, I got to experience both sides, of the ONE body of water as it moved along.. gurgling happily as it tripped over the rocks and valleys of its bed.

Each moment of our lives, we too are captured by the Universe in our daily execution of our daily “living”.

Be thankful to your parents and to your ancestors. You are here today because the “torch of life” has been continuously passed down. always remember to be thankful.

Friday 21st.

Here we are, another Friday, today tho’ is not just another Friday it is the 21st. for PL members this is the day we attend church for a special Thanksgiving day service. Reminder this evening 7 pm. Eastern Daylight Time.

Your feelings of appreciation become real when you express them. Express your feelings of appreciation by actually saying, “Thank you” out loud or by doing something to show how you feel. Not only will the person you are thanking feel good, but you will too, leading to better things in the future.

In life, the changes we live don’t always show up, like it did in the above pictures. (of my avatar China) But the happenings around us, can impact us, emotionally, and mentally in ways that do leave us with a profound sense of change, and we are left to struggle and relearn to find our “balance”

I used China as an example today, because, it took months, weeks and days, for me to realize that visually she needed a make-over. Then it took hours and hours of trials and redos.. for me to get this far. I have to give a huge shout out to Truth Wizardly who when I asked for help in the chat group came to my rescue. (Truth is a blogger for various designers in SL Glam affaire and Lelutka being two of them)(see him Flickr)

When we make a change in our lives or have one thrust on us, the adjustments take time, and they require patience. In the case of upgrading my avatar, like buying a new car, everything is new and technology has moved on from what you had previously. there is a learning curve.

If we live with appreciation in our hearts, and accept that some of our “realities” will incur deep emotion and require “letting go” With acceptance, and the desire to move on.. We will grow with the changes in our lives… to become even more of the “person” we hope/strive to be.

Ian’s picture is pure “magic” … thank you Ian!

xmas in July

what a party Sandie was really rocking, her theme was Xmas in July.

Quality time with good friends is a very special way to enhance our daily living during these “challenging ” times. My heartfelt thanks to Eclair the owner and creative force behind this very enjoyable venue. Behind every avatar is a human being with a heart and soul … the warmth and glow of friendship that was shared last night was truly a real “xmas” in July.

Silver and I had a great time .. Cheers to everyone, and Sandie thanks again for the great set!

The greatest things in life – truth-creativity-imagination – love- kindness – compassion – are already inside us, and they’re all free.

composting

composting

Good morning all, I used this picture yesterday it is how the Parks and Services composts vegetation they clear in their forest.

runs along the St. Lawrence, from Cornwall towards Morrisburg, Ontario

Often we just take for granted that our park lands, forests our there for us to enjoy and explore. The big pile left to compost over winter and into next season, reminded me of all the workers that we don’t see during the weeks and months that keep the trails free and open for us to use, 4 seasons of the year.

It is important to say thank you, and appreciate those that work behind the scenes, men and women who we don’t get to see, but work doing things that we get to appreciate every day. Last night JR (company here in Ottawa) had drivers out clearing lane ways that were hard to clear due to the heaviness of the snow and ice. built up over the last couple of days. It is a service I pay for. Yet it was not really an amount of snow that they usually come out and do. This was an accumulation over several days.

When I heard the plow in the lane way I was truly grateful and happy. By the time I got myself organized to run out and say thank you.. the plow was at the end of the street moving to the next customer on the street. That gratitude was so heartfelt. I had tried to move the snow, and it was hard, I had given up, and come inside. This was earlier in the day, to get to church I drove over the hard crusted snow. I so dislike car tracks in the snow/ice that leave ruts over time.

I will make time today, to call the company and say thank you. Appreciation feels good, and I want to pass it on. You?

It is important to say “Thank you” Everything that appears in front of you is all material for you to improve yourself whether it’s food, people or things. Learn to accept everything whether it is something you like or not.

a day of discovery

Another day of sunshine, mild temperatures, and welcoming countryside. Savor each moment of the day. It is a gift. I searched the branches for birds, the ground for little paw prints. The day was still young. I stood and took it all in. How grateful I am that I am able to adventure the back roads and really see the beauty that can so easily go unnoticed.

I thank the UNIVERSE that I still have my sight and sense of smell. That I am strong and able to still explore the land as it is meant to be seen. I am grateful that I have a home, and a place to call my own. I will not forget to say thank you at the end of the day…. I pray for peace .. each and every day. Be kind to your fellow man… a smile goes a long way.

Thursday doors

Good morning, a week or so ago, went on a door gathering expedition. This last one was the door to a small 3 season canteen. On this brisk day in December it seemed to be saying..”Help, I’m being held up, and shut down, it’s lonely”….. Yes when operating it is busy little place on the main street of a small town, with an active community.

Houses, buildings, streets, what makes them interesting is the PEOPLE, a house is just that, until someone comes along and makes it a home.

Each person has their own special qualities. Each of us is born with a unique worldview. Be respectful of others and learn to get along with people of all types.
