Things that all have a meaning. everything that happens to us, happen for a reason. Each and every occurence is a chance for you to improve yourself.
PL Precept #16 All things progress and develop. Todo progresa y evoluciona
When we are young and begin our journey, art is a creative outlet. A way of expression. Young eyes, will replicate with whatever medium they have on hand and will delight us with their drawings and insights.
As we travel the road of life, our thoughts and views take on different forms of expression. This drawing was done by my 6 year old niece, seeing it, I was filled with memories of the days where I lay with my pencils, crayons and rescued papers, designing what I knew would be the gowns and dresses of the “fashion” world.
What happens to our dreams, do they actually go away, or do they blossom into an assortment of different colour and shapes. I still think of drawing and using fashion when I sit to “express” my thoughts, the key word being -think- that disappears the minute I see a blank page/canvass. My innocence has had years of living to change its perceptions.
PL Precept #1 Life is Art, friends, go with the flow, the only constant in life is change. Life your life to the fullest, appreciate and be grateful for all the comes your way. Growing pain and all. You “art” will shine and continue to be uniquely yours.
*yesterday at this time, I was heading for Montreal and fish tails. =^_^=
Everything in life is beautiful, life is a wonderous adventure, unconditional love is possible and something we are all capable of. Live with love in your heart, it is healthy and rewarding. Life will take on new meaning, there is a story in every blade of grass, and a song in every bird. God is love, and love is God. We are all children of the Universe.
torn from a journal page
a memory from another day
I sit wondering
just where my thoughts lay
on that other day so far away
where eyes that seem to drown in sadness
were what spoke to me
while I was pondering
that day is long gone
I have long moved on
still, that was me,
at that time and place
I like it, but thankfully, today is another day
I am headed out to explore what comes my way
YOU are in my heart
today and always
acceptance and appreciation

Things that happen to us all have a meaning

Abstract art – Keeping it together. Life happens, like the seasons, one day flows seamlessly into another, it happens. The weather, the time of day, they just happen. Meanwhile, we (life) progress through theses changes, sailing through, at times limping, whatever, we all manage. We do the best we can, with what we have.
Living the PL “way” means we appreciate and give thanks for all the blessings in our lives, and for the opportunities and lessons along the way.
Keep it simple, keep it real. PL Precept #1 Life is art
abstract art,by Q
Yesterday I was jolted out of my musings by an artist(Seth Apter) I was unfamiliar with. I had received an e-mail about 3 days of workshops with him in the fall. Attending workshops is not something I am apt to do, but I am a regular at this particular store, and have found that the owner there, keeps up with the latest in the mixed media news. The store is a treasure for art/craft supplies.
I was sufficiently motivated, that I dressed and headed out the door in search of a stamp that he had used, and to research his embossing powders. My first stop was about 50-60 miles from my place. Heading out towards Montreal I suddenly realized that on my left in the lanes coming into the city, were not a few dozen but miles of cars bumper to bumper inching their way into the city. Commuters, people who live on the edges of the city trying to get to work,
It was jaw dropping to see so many people patiently making their way west. As far as the eye could see, coming along the major roadways every vehicle one can imagine. I am retired, and know to leave my house after the “rush hour” It was somewhere between 8:30 and 9. I gave thanks right there and then, that I am now in a different phase of “life”. It was very appropriate when I saw this little sign in the Dollar Tree, when I dropped in.
Please dear reader, if you, like I, have the freedom to explore, discover and live a less structured day to day. Say a prayer of appreciation today, thank the Universe for your life as it is now, and include prayers of support and energy for those who live along beside us, coping and dealing with the phases in their lives that is their “moment in time”
