Sometimes, where one begins, another ends, or……… in a short span of time, we see what lies ahead.

Looking out a still frozen, Lac des Loups, Quebec.. a drive thru the Pontiac.

Blessings .. happy Thursday

PL Precept #16, All things progress and Develop

Oyashikiri

Spring yay!

To walk where no one has walked before

P1000645

I wish, =^_^= but I was the one to make a new trail

down an unused road, that led me to another time

P1000643

a family home, once filled with laughter

now stands silent, waiting

this was not the structure tho’ that had caught my attention

rather I was drawn to a building that called out

to my searching ” eyes”

P1000641

“look, look, see my charm”, I got a picture in full sunlight

but this one with the little building half in the shade

I found had more to say

I sensed this is where the children played

on rainy days, on sunny days

this little structure captured and ignited

their imagination in every way

P1000659

this pretty face

was also part of yesterday =^_^=

It was an amazing day !!!

In PL (Perfect Liberty) we do our best to live each day doing our best to be creative in every way.  Make every day count, rain, snow, sunshine, it doesn’t matter. Do your best every day.

Thursday Doors -2.9.17

Interesting door, the little house was nestled on the main street of a small town in Ontario. It begged notice.  I was intrigued with the half seen figure  that could be seen from the road.  A charmer on an otherwise ordinary street.

Wear a smile today, share happiness and laughter with friends.

Thursday Doors 2.2.17

1-30-17-leitrum-at-bank

I’ve always enjoyed driving by this building, on this particular day, I was drawn to it, the sky behind, the sprinkle of snow…. it was eye-catching.  It has a practical use I’m sure, never-the-less it was “king for the day” in my day of photo possibilities.

A moment in time capture in a lens, without the surrounding buildings, or traffic on the roads, it could be on a desolate patch of land, in an abandoned airport..  Loved it.. Hope you find it stirs your imaginations too.

Happy Thursday everyone… PL Precept # 2  To Live is to Express One’s Self

Picadilly Theatre

Taken from Wikipedia.. cut and paste

Theatre or theater[1] is a collaborative form of fine art that uses live performers, typically actors or actresses, to present the experience of a real or imagined event before a live audience in a specific place, often a stage. The performers may communicate this experience to the audience through combinations of gesture, speech, song, music, and dance. Elements of art, such as painted scenery and stagecraft such as lighting are used to enhance the physicality, presence and immediacy of the experience.[2] The specific place of the performance is also named by the word “theatre” as derived from the Ancient Greek θέατρον (théatron, “a place for viewing”), itself from θεάομαι (theáomai, “to see”, “to watch”, “to observe”).

The pictures themselves are part  of my collection of places that speak to me.  We have driven by when the doors have been open to air the place.  But, I have not been inside.

p1000565

It sits on a main street, there are houses close by, where people still live.  When I stopped to take the pictures, a walker  walked past, and greetings were shared. There was no concern or interest in my standing there, taking pictures.  Just another “tourist’ taking in the sights.

I have spoken to the lady who owns the building, she operates a small antique and knick knack shop near by.  In her plans, somewhere  down the road, she would like to fix it up and do something with it.  Meanwhile it sits.

Sometimes I feel like my body and mind are like the building.  I am here, I function, just don’t know how brilliantly I’m handling the day.

Today, I was searching through the “arts and crafts” section in a chain Thrift Shop (it is for profit, and gives a big percentage to the Diabetes agency in our area)  I came away with some great finds.. Things that  had I gone to the local “big store” Craft, hobby, or Stationary shops for, would have cost me 3 – 4 times more

It works for me, because over the years, I have worked with these products and purchased them at full price for “work” in a Corporate or Health Care Setting. People pass them on because something newer has come along, name has been changed, and it has a fancier package, and important here… it is marketed to the consumer by Crafting, and Hobby specialists  via You Tube or the company’s own website.

250 envelopes at 2.99 less 30% discount, is more appealing to me, than a box of 100 for 15$ plus taxes.  The drafting paper I got, 18 sheets for 2.99 less 30%  works for me, does the same job as the pad of specialty paper for 24$, and a real find was photo paper, gloss a package of 50 for 50 cents… versus 1 sheet for  89 cents

The relic that I am, had a darn good day.  I am excited about trying my goodies out, just as a theater goer is primed and eager to see a new movie or play. The Picadilly theater still stands,  the  sign above the door, still sits proudly announcing the function of the building. Every time I go by, I will wave, and wish it continued success  that it will go on  standing proud, no matter how the years fade and wear its facade down.

Thursday doors, 11.3.16

p1000520

Had to get a closer look.  Around the block we drove, so I could really see t his entrance way to a church we saw along the way

p1000521Nice colours used in the stained glass…I like the simplicity of it.

——————————————————————————————————————————————-

p1000532

This entrance was hidden, but I was determined to get  a closer look.  the building appealed to me, we are trying to get more information on it.  Hwy 3, NY State going towards Watertown.  It is not always easy getting the real estate people to call us back…

p1000533

Some of you are really good at search and find, this is the real estate agent of note.. there was another sign, but it was long over grown with vegetation.

p1000530

OK so it isn’t everyone’s idea of “turn-key”   and it doesn’t have the greatest “curb appeal”  To each his/her own, right.

p1000529

I see a ton of possibility, AND it sets my mind to “dreaming” of what was, and what could be…

p1000528

Never give up on your dreams.  always look for the “something” that appeals to you.  It isn’t about what others may want, it is what “speaks to you”

ps. I was feeling rather sluggish with the weather today, happy, but draggin.. then I started to work on this blog, sharing with you,  I was pulling out my pictures of this latest “find” of mine.  I couldn’t help it, my heart took wings, a smile as broad as my face plastered itself across my “pus”  this building makes me smile, what can I say, the old weathered wood, the placement of the windows on the second story, watching out on the busy hwy.

The building was at an intersection, the sign was really too faded to read, but we thought we saw the word mini.. could have been a convenience store.  Certainly there was ample parking.  Yeah life is good. =^_^=

Blessings of the day to everyone… May you find peace and happiness, and your smile shine like a beacon of light for all who meet up with you today.
