Thursday doors, 11.3.16

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.

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.

Sometimes

4827c30eba1ada26b75827d3c4747740Look familiar

have you had such moments

They happen in any relationship

This very public television couple

entertained, and made us laugh,

Lucy and her antics where just too funny

at least, that is how I remember the shows

when I saw them when they played

reruns.  She started out in movies, way before my time

but knew enough to change over to the small picture box

when it came along/

She went from showgirl, to B movie actress to a

well know and loved comedian, with a good head for business.  Sometimes we forget how some

actors worked very hard to make us smile and laugh.  They did so by exaggerating the day-to-day

ups and downs that a lot of relationships faced on a daily basis.  They put humour into the events

and laughter was the goal, when the audience really laughed, ratings rose.

These two made it look like fun.  Of course there was always a happy ending.  That is not the case in real life.  Many couples say that they work hard to never go to bed with negativity between them.  That is not an easy task

I faced an inner battle with myself just recently, I had to withdraw to a quiet place and meditate, think on why I was so upset.  Sometimes…. we just have to work things out for ourselves.  It is not that …click.. I sat down, tuned out of the world around me, and bingo the answer appeared in my thoughts.  Rather I had to pray, and have faith that I would do what was right. Once I made the decision, I was done with it, and it no longer took up space in my “head”.

PL Precept #19  Begin Once You Perceive.

Tonight while working on a project, I searched and searched for a picture I wanted to use.  Couldn’t find it, so I used something else.  The moment I stopped looking… you guessed it… I found the picture.  It had always been there, I just didn’t see it.  The picture I did use… turns out was the right one for that project.

whippet whippet 3

If you have never lived with a whippet you have not  had the occassion to see them in sleep mode.  They can run like the wind, jump like kangaroos, sneak like thieves, but when it is time to sleep, they zone,

Humans do a lot of running,moving, and racing about, but when it comes to sleep, many miss the boat.. We might sleep, but we seldom totally zone.  Those of us who do, who are able to simply lie down and “disappear” letting our bodies totally rest, and our minds shut down, are very blessed.

whippet 2

I’d like to share with you a true story.  A dear friend has told me over the years about how her daughters first husband went to work one day and never returned.

Police were called in and for years, there was a search for this man, The family even hired a private detective.  Eventually all hope was lost, he had vanished, and there was not a sign of him anywhere.

He had left behind a daughter.  My friend’s daughter and her 1-year-old child were left wondering what had happened.  For years they suffered the pain of not knowing.  Eventually with time, for my friend’s daughter, she was able to put the past behind, and she remarried and had another daughter.

The daughter, the one whose father had just up and left, spent a lifetime, yearning and wondering.  Married now with two children of her own, she still grieved for the father she had never known.  In her heart, she prayed that one day he would be found and  returned to her, or at least, they would learn of what had happened and closure for her could happen.

whippet 4

In her heart, she kept his memory alive, remember she was only a year old when he disappeared.  Yet she held her father in her heart and always in her prayers.

The other day, 35 years later, he knocked on his parents door, a mature adult man, white hair (he had been fair ) with a the question, was he welcomed.  You can imagine the shock, the tears, the reunion of the parents with their son.

He saw his daughter that Sunday, she invited the grandparents, their son (her estranged father) to dinner to meet her husband and her two daughters ( his grandchildren).. After dinner with the husbands permission, he and his daughter took a long walk together, to talk and get to know one another. Love is……

Faith and prayer are powerful tools.  Life happens … not when we want or expect it to.. But when it is meant to happen.

Whippet 6

What is.. no more… no less.

Green

 Green    

the subtle shades of green

weave a gentle pattern through my dream…                

Green

my body stirs, as I sense the life around me

birds sing, a squirrel chatters from a tree

and a ray of sunshine finds its way to my face

what is this place

so, calm, so surreal

I know it is part of me, for I am totally 

embraced by the beauty

and serenity that gracefully permeates

my total being….

this moment, this time in space

it is real, it is not a dream, 

it is my communion with God 

the bonding and reconnection

to what is real

Oneness with Nature/God/Tao

Valentines and Winnie the Pooh

wedding shoeLOL, got you there, what have a pair of shoes got to do with Winnie the Pooh and Valentines…. smiles… I really don’t know but this is where I am this morning.  Have more coffee, it might help.  I was going through my mail when I came across this picture.  I am so blessed to have friends that share…  These shoes which I love btw, except I’d wear different laces, are featured in weddingonmania.com in an article on gorgeous …. wait for it…. vintage wedding shoes.

wedding decorations

That set me drifting off on weddings, tulle, flowers, balloons, fanciful stuff, then I remembered Saturday is Valentines day and my mind went to thinking if I’d done all my valentines… ( you can see why I needed a day of quiet yesterday!)

winnie the pooh

 

I recalled a book put out by Scholastic, Disney’s Winnie the Pooh and Valentines, Too, by Liza Alexander illustrated by Carol C. Haantz.  It is a wonderful little story that reminds us to not jump to conclusions without knowing all the facts, and that knowing only a little bit about something, worrying and fretting can cause a lot of anxiety and stress, that could be avoided, if we believe and trust in our own strengths and knowledge about ourselves.

 

Winnie quote

 

In the Pooh story, Winnie couldn’t find  his friend Christopher Robin, then he saw him sitting on his own busy writing something, looking over, he saw the letters W – I – N and felt rather pleased, but then his friend kept writing, and in the end it wasn’t his name at all.  I won’t spoil the story for you, but it was near Valentines day, and Winnie felt sad thinking his friend had a new friend now, and….. well you know…. how thoughts  run through different scenarios.   Of course it all ends well, Valentines day came and Winnie got a card from Christopher addressed to him and he was very happy.  He told Christopher, “But, we thought you found a new friend”… to which the reply was “oh, Pooh Bear, just because I care about someone else, it doesn’t mean I care any less for you.” =^_^=

winnie colouring page

Here is a Valentine for you dear reader.. get out your crayons and have some fun, or print it out for someone who will enjoy a few minutes of R & R with Pooh.  Remember. I LOVE YOU….

lost

brdge, Inca

This is an Inca rope bridge (Qeswachaka) above the Apurimac river in Peru. Rope bridges were simple suspension bridges over canyons and gorges (Pongos) that provided access for the Inca Empire.  traffic was limited to pedestrians and livestock and were an integral part of the Inca road system …

bridge, northern Pakistan

This bridge is known as the most dangerous bridge in the world.  The Hussaini Hanging bridge is only one of many precarious rope bridges in Northern Pakistan. These rickety cable and plank bridges are long and poorly maintained.  Planks go missing, and strong winds shake the bridge as you cross it.

ladder, 5stories high,Putucusi,Peru

OK 1 more.  This is how one scales Putucusi, (Peru) it is a hike that brings you up adjacent to Machu Picchu, it is said to be about 5 stories high.  One hiker hiked for 4 days over the top of the Andes on the Inca trail to get to this ladder.

PL lesson,  Everything that happens to us, is material for Growth.

I lost my cell phone today. Won’t bore you with the details, suffice to say after searching and searching some more, it has not turned up. There are a few more steps to be taken tomorrow, but the long and short of it is that I simply will likely find myself with out a phone. (cell)   Didn’t use it much, will I miss it, it will be inconvenient at times.  However…interestingly I am not really concerned.  whatever happens it will be for the best.  I believe that.

Would I cross the bridges I’ve shown you in this blog.  If I needed to get to the other side,and that was my option, yes I would.  Would you?

Peru – me and you?
