Katana

Katana DC collectible 3.7.19

Historically , a Katana was traditionally known as a Japanese sword, used by the samurai of ancient and feudal Japan.  However, my Katana is a DC Bombshell collectible.  Her real name is Tatsu Yamashiro and her superpowers  – martial arts intuition  artistic intuition, and enhanced swordmanship.  You can of course read more about her on the net.  In the comics she is sometimes a teenager… But mine is grown up, ageless =^_^=

butterflies and flyWhy Katan, DC and Marvel have dozens and dozens of characters and possibilities.  It was actually my niece who gave me the idea.  She herself had recently picked up a Superwoman.  That brought back memories for me when I was growing up, Linda Carter was the blue eyes beauty who played her in the series that was on the telly.

I related to her super powers and her dedication to good, and the service of her abilities in helping others.

This is from the Wikipedia   Katana is a fictional superheroine that appears in comic books published by DC Comics. First appearing in 1983, Katana is a samurai warrior whose skill with a sword allows her to fight for justice as a superhero. Her tragic backstory includes the death of her husband, Maseo, whose soul becomes trapped in her blade, the Soultaker. Katana has been featured in various DC Comics superhero teams, including the Justice League and the Birds of Prey, but is most commonly associated with the team known as the Outsiders, a team of heroes hand-picked by Batman to act as his personal black ops team, handling riskier missions.

Ancestors Day

fabric friend got for her

Perfect Liberty Calendar … day 11

Appreciate the Makoto (sincerity) of the people who came before you

Everything we have today was built upon the hard work of our ancestors and the people who came before us.  Always remember to be thankful and humble and continue to build on their past successes.


The bright colourful fabric you see was purchased and collected by a friend of my sister’s while on a shopping outing.  I never met this friend, only heard of her through my sister. I was however, really taken by her selection of fabric, the choices she made, and the colours she was drawn to.  This friend passed away last week, leaving a gigantic hole in the lives of her family and friends. It was sudden, no warnings, simply a chill, and she was gone.

We never know in life when a change will be made in our circle of friends and loved ones.  It happens, life is what it is.

Perfect Liberty Principle #2 –  I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather.  Rather I will always be creative and will look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.

Day 8 PL Calendar

First, accept everything

Life is filled with moments, sometimes happy and at times inconvenient.  It is important to first accept every situation as it occurs and try to accept and understand it for what it is.

flashback 2006

back yard a2006The last few days, maybe even weeks, I have found myself thinking of a different time and what was.  How a young garden, took shape, and grew till it no longer resembled what was.

back yard 2006

Life mirrors nature, the link between the two has been established since way before I was born.  I am only now pulling the fragments of the past into what I have been living and what is to come.  I can feel the stirring of new beginnings, I know that I am already well into discovery mode.

Today, day 15 of the PL Calendar – Live with firm determination, thinking that “this will turn out for the best”

Everything in this world progresses an develops.  Always be positive, knowing that everything will turn out for the best.

Yesterday I drove to Montreal, the day was bright, balmy and welcoming.  Each mile was a new beginning.  Even though I have travelled this route many times, it was like a first visit.  The landscape along the way, simply would not be still.  The shades of late autumn strutted their charms against the blankets of pristine snow.  I felt their happy waves, and delighted in the variety of picture postcards they flashed my eager eyes as I drove by. Mother Nature, stayed with me all the way, the best tour guide ever.

2006aLife is a blessing, I am filled with appreciation and gratitude.  Thank you all for sharing my world,  Life is love, and love is YOU and the world we are in.

PL Calendar 2019 – day 2

Live each day filled with hope.

waiting

1st day 12.14.18_036

Waiting for 2018 to end.  What a year it has been,  Major changes, a much loved story book romance, came to an end.  Lost in thought last night, I wandered through the open doors of the memory vault. Each new day, brings me further away, from the day last May when I was left behind at the runway, my time not yet come to fly.

What will the new year bring, one will never know till the time comes.  Meanwhile, the clock ticks a steady beat..counting down to what…

Chinese New Year is at the start of February this year.  We will enter the year of the Pig.  Tonight in my part of the world, we will slide into 2019, a little over twelve hours from now.  If I didn’t know the time would it make a difference.  Not really, my life would still be in change mode, and after a good sleep, I will wake to begin yet another day of adventure and exploration.

snow 2.10.17e

PTSD Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, we have all heard of it, many of us deal with it in our lives in some way, friends, family, neighbours, work mates.  Usually someone somewhere, in your sphere, knows of, or has someone who has had to cope through a crises.  We know the weather patterns are changing too.

So many voices, so many schools of thought, everyone has a different reality. Why are some worlds lived in monochrome, and others vary in degree of colour. Life simply IS.

Same planet, different longitude and latitude perhaps, sometimes it is the same place in time and space, yet the people  involved are scrambling for harmony and balance in a world that can be chaotic at times, there is order in the Universe, but we, the human species, is often out of step.

This time of year can be very hard for those who are coping with a bout of December dis”ease”.

PL Calendar day 23   Appreciate our differences

Appreciate the colourful personalities of the people around you and enjoy their uniqueness to the fullest.

PL Principle  #2  I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather.  Rather I will always be creative and will look for short comings in my own thinking and actions.
