68dc02b731c14f2b79ac665c842e840f  When in life we begin to grow

We are taught by our parents,

by teachers, and by the life around us

There are some things that we

really take to, that captures our

imagination, so we apply ourselves

and we work hard to accomplish

what our heart desires.

Our passion comes from within

A;vin Aley NY Dance Troupe

If we are in the right groove

we study, we learn, and we find

and cultivate friends along the way

who share our interests

If there is a connection, wow

there is such an intense joy in the sharing

in the way we move, the way we think

and how we experience each other.

It is hard to know at times

where one begins and where one ends.


Although we are often on our own,

the reality is that in life, the natural energies,

or elements, require a positive and a negative

to reach a ONENESS

If we over water, plants will drown

too much sun and dry soil, will cause a drought

love is an emotion,

emotion has a range of expressions

Life is Art.    .. PL Precept #1

When dancers perform, we don’t see the work, sweat,tears, pain that they endured during their practices, workouts, and personal battles they fought for us to see the final product.  Their dedication to their craft, is what enables us to enjoy a breathtaking performance.  Even the work that went into taking the pictures I have used in this blog, the time the photographer took, the patience to get just the right angle, that exact moment to click the shutter.

There is complexity in all that happens.  We tend to only see the surface.  Life is an art form, and we, each and every one of us, is a piece of the puzzle in the whole of this wonderful, exhilarating experience called living….

Each and every time we share time with each other.. I for sure, am enriched.  Thank you.

please, a smile for you?

donkey flowersGood morning, I picked these just for you

 How are you today?  Is it sunny down your way?

Oh dear, what is a shower or two

After all, we are getting to share a moment

Before I have to say adieu..


Yesterday was a wonderful day

I’m sorry I missed my time with you

I knew you would understand

Friends and I, were out on a drive exploring

and simply enjoying the day

Seeing the sights and getting to know each other more

Life would be such a bore,

if we didn’t make time to play


The beauty and wonder of it all

Is that my friends are from Japan,

 I got to show them a small part of Canada

and experience their delight in viewing my homeland

Morrisburg, on St Lawrence River.

We got as far as the St. Lawrence River,

where we could stand, and they could see

our closest neighbour, the United States of America

crops soybean

Farmer’s fields were newly sewn, some early crops were to be seen

Everything was green, as far as the eyes could see

Language barriers vanished when the sharing

was the visual all around  us

country living, sheep

In Perfect LIberty, we truly believe that Life is for Living

and that Life is Art

Rev. Atsushi, Rev. Mamoru and I had a exquisite day yesterday

we put our full Makoto (heart/sincerity)  into what we did

the day will be a memory that will last for a very long time

In sharing it with you, we hope that it

will bring a smile to your day.

Happy Wednesday everyone! Soccer?


If you have been watching any of the FIFA games, then you have to be someone who appreciates the game of football/soccer.  To be honest I have only discovered the game in the last couple of years.  Prior to that it was beyond me why anyone would want to watch men at sport.  I thought it to be like any other sport game I’d seen over the years. NO. Not so.  I actually found myself sitting in front of a television one day while a game of soccer was on, Italy was playing at the time, I can’t tell you who the other team was, I was mesmerized by the athletic prowess, the dexterity, the passion and determination that was unfolding before my eyes.  The sound wasn’t on, all I saw was the ballet, the execution of movements that were almost unreal in the performance that played out before me.  The game was fast, the colours on the screen were constantly moving, the effect was so artistic. Like an abstract painting come to life.

Now of course I watch with the sound on, and I get involved with whatever team I am taken by. My husband who understands the game and can tell you details that are lost on me, shakes his head at my excitement and sometimes very loud cries of encouragement to the players who can’t hear me.  For me it is not a sporting event, it is a game of magic and dance, of fantastic energy that gives pleasure and excitement as you are drawn in the dynamics of the event.  I decide on a team by the performance and their skill at capturing my imagination with their art form.  If it is just a game of technical ho-hum plays, its boring I walk away.  Does anyone else see it my way?

Isn’t Orange a dynamic colour? LOL  what a game they played.    I tell you ladies, turn off the sound, and watch a game, the energy and focus these guys have when they play is phenomenal. No hands, footwork bodies and head.

Have a good day everyone…    Nederlands plays Australia today!  You not going to be around, tape it!
