Ever have a conversation with a cow.  If the cow is at all interested in what you have to say, it can be very rewarding, you get their full attention, and maybe just maybe they will nod or moo to acknowledge they’ve heard what you’ve had to say. Often they will simply flick their tail and walk away, never-the -less, it will be an honest reaction to you and or your words.  Nor will you give much thought to how much you said they understood, nor will you really care.  You met you exchanged a brief connection and you then both went on your way, having enjoyed that moment, but life moves on.  no more.. no less.

You love to fish, swim, isn’t this dock and the setting a beckoning sight.  I could place a deck chair right smack in the middle there and just sit and drink in the moment.  The photographer when they took this picture I’m sure heard crickets, frogs and skeeters.  Even the gentle plop of a fish breaking surface, see the small ripples.

Triumph,classic T20 Tiger cub by Gordon CalderMy biking friends will enjoy seeing this old classic by photographer Gordon Calder of a Triumph T20 Tiger Cub.  If you have ever ridden a motorbike through the back roads in the hills of Tennessee or the hills and valleys of the Gatineau Hills.  You will appreciate how valuable a well tuned engine is.  Gordon Calder has taken a series of pictures of motors, if you like this picture, you will enjoy his other beauties.

Bob Marley

Most of us, know or remember the  Old MacDonald had a farm song.  For me it reminds me of a time of innocence and playtime.  No other association comes to mind.  But,  other songs, and music can elicit other emotions and feelings from me. Bob Marley said “one good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain”…. in one sense. … music when you are tuned in, and it connects, it does so in a way that can be heart wrenching or joyful, and true we can drown in the moment and resurface without pain, but we do feel it.

Paulo it was taken in Vietnam, posted on Pinterest.  I wanted to show you another side of Vietnam, one that the is rarely shown on the news and in newspapers.  Vietnam is a place of beauty.  There is undiscovered beauty in all of us.   Oyashikiri

Rev. Tiago shares a “musical moment”

Rev. Tiago is a young minister from Brazil who is now serving in the Ottawa church of Perfect Liberty. Reflecting on creativity and “happiness”, he shares the following. (I have kept his text and wording, Rev. Tiago speaks Portuguese,Spanish,French, is learning Japanese and English, my time spent talking with him, has always been bright, and informative, he is so enthusiastic!, his door is always open, if you live to far away, you can e-mail Rev. Tiago, or call)

One of those days, after I finish my missionary work, I went to my place to spend some time with my family. After a while, I was surfing online, reading some news and checking on several websites when I saw something that attracted my attention. It was a link for a video on youtube of an audition for The Voice show in Netherlands.

I saw this guy standing in the middle of the stage, an ordinary guy to be honest, that like so many others, was trying to be accepted in that contest show. But, from the moment that Mitchell Brunings opened his mouth to sing, the mood of the judges and the audience completely changed. After the first two lines of the song, all the judges pressed a button and turned to see who was singing. (Pressing the button means that the contender was accepted into the show). Mitchel Brunnings made everything seems to be so easy to be done. It was really incredible.

He was singing this incredible song, Redemption Song, by Bob Marley. But, his voice was so incredibly similar to Bob Marley’s that everyone was in shock. However, what really amazed me was that, it seemed to me that the song was not coming out of his mouth but from his heart.

I consider myself a fan of Bob Marley, but somehow, I never listened to that song before. The lyrics was so meaningful, so strong, so damn good!!! I was very grateful that I had the chance to watch this marvelous video.

But this situation made me think about something. In all fields of art, there are some genius who are capable of creating the same kind of good emotion in our hearts. Those people are capable of creating such a masterpiece that can make fill our hearts with joy, hope or even make us cry like little babies.

In that sense, in our lives, there are wonderful examples of people who are doing their best, living their lives in a masterful way. Living in a world like and being able to notice that we can be happy at any time is a wonderful thing. Just now, I remember part of this famous song:

“And I think to myself, what a wonderful world”

I had prepared this post last night before heading to bed.  I had a very musical evening of sleep, =^_^=…

This morning I was reading a post by Deepak Chopra, if you are interested this is the link.
