what busy bird(s) came by and left its mark while having a tasty slice of tree
these little devils I just discovered love stucco too..! there are a few in the neighbourhood who are wrecking havoc on my neighbour’s new home. The little beggar(s) comes daily to dine … the upper corner of the house, right under the eaves. I’ve never seen the like. so far nothing he(neighbour) has done has deterred the bird(s) from coming to dine.

What can give artistic pleasure to see the designs of “age” ” on an aging tree standing in the forest, does not incur the same reaction when the same craving for food and substance is applied to a home in an urban setting.

In Taoist philosophy, and in PL, there are always two sides to a coin, there is a positive/negative… just look at your hand, there is a top/bottom. the two are ONE. some difference are readily accepted, they just are. no more…no less. Your hand would not be whole without the top/bottom.

It is only natural that you are different from others. Each of us has our own way of thinking and our own individual lifestyles. That’s what makes life interesting.

Perfect Liberty 2020.20

I had a sculpture (still have) on the roof outside the back porch, the same little “beggar(s) ” kept coming back, nothing I did deterred it. now I have a male head(bust) with many “openings” guarding my property. Totally unique and different. =^_^=

enthusiasm – opportunities

aqua dome hotel..Austria  aqua-dome.at

This is the Aqua dome hotel in Austria, don’t know about you, but I find it very inviting. Today I watched people jumping into cold water where the ice had been chopped away for the annual polar bear dip (fund-raiser) we are not talking one or two people, there was a large gathering.  All for a good cause, they put on their swim trunks and other festive costumes to jump into the freezing water while a crowd gather to watch the antics.  Weather here was below freezing at the time of day they took the plunge.

I have since learned that this is not uncommon .. the above was the picture of the day 7 December 2012 (Telegraph.co.uk), a winter swimmer drove into freezing waters, Beijing Lake in Shenyang China.

The Huffington Post, posted this picture along with a story on how in an effort to help a family in Missouri, thousands across the country took a dive into freezing waters across the USA.  What kind of determination and hardiness does it take to prompt a person to take this challenge?  In our daily lives we might not take such extreme actions, but we do have to gather our inner strength to tackle some of the difficulties/problems that drop in on us.

This is more “me” – a Japanese Snow monkey settles in to a hot spring  (Jigokudani,Nagano, Japan) for a warm soothing lazy laid back, meditation, (private time).. The enthusiasm in which we tackle our challenges, can often lead to opportunities that bring about positive results into our lives.  Especially when we put our whole effort (Makoto=sincerity) into our actions.

sleeping squirrelA day of activity leaves us tuckered out and ready for a good sleep, especially when we have applied ourselves to the day’s events, living each moment to the fullest….when we finally find that quiet patch, we can easily lie down and effortlessly sleep.
