hello?

sometimes, the camera wants to do what it wants to do

sometimes the sunshine is so bright, you can’t see what you are taking

sometimes, you are simply intrigued by  a design, texture

sometimes you hear the announcer on a radio talk show say the weirdest things.. at least to you they are, but to a different generation they seem to generate a lot of discussion.  When you think about it, it is the same discussion that was taking place years ago, just different people, who have not lived through the years you did, so .. to them, it is really a big issue.

Did you know that you can burn incense sticks in this “urn” and pray to your ancestors?

This was a fairly new cemetery, markers gleamed in the sunshine.  No, don’t ask, I have no idea what the writing says,  I believe tho’ that the characters are Chinese.

This was my happy find.  The sun on my iPhone was a darn nuisance.  Where was my camera, at home of course…

Hope you had a good start to your long week=end.  Working on mine =^_^=

Chop Suey Thursday

photo-4-2Finally the colour is appearing along the fence and in our backyard.  On my way to Orleans this afternoon, I was again delighted by the colour the lined the highway.  This time I was taking another way in,  I was driving by farmland, fruit stands, and even a golf course.  So I enjoyed the contrast of colour against the manicured shades of green on the course itself.

img_0065Norm (Thursday Doors) I did wonder, if this could be considered a  “kind of” door.  After all it does symbolize the ending of life here on earth, and the journey to another “dimension”.   After a brief dialogue with myself .. I passed on the idea… but I did like the picture.

I like discovering old resting places… some are a tad sad due to neglect… but if you see beyond the disrepair .. you discover wonderful works of art, and interesting sentiments  Mother Nature has a way of adding her own decorative etchings and colouring on the tombstones.

photo-4-3You all know how much I love the play of light and shadows, in the fall, the darkness deepens, and I can lose myself in the depth of imagination and vegetation that has started to decay.  Life is beautiful in all stages.

ce00249d8878b494394bf12392d36775I have no idea, where this is, or how this picture found its way into the folder I was viewing..  but.. hey it is a door and by jove, it is Thursday

Tomorrow, I am having my second eye done.. (how many does she have you ask.. even I wonder at times).. so I will “see” you when I “see” you.

Have good days, peaceful nights, and I won’t say be good, I’ll say… live each moment, put your whole heart into it, and you will never have regrets.

PL Principle #21  – I will live paying careful attention, putting Makoto (sincerity) into all I say and do

Thursday doors – A new day

DSC00191

some rooms are very small and confining

and if one could

they would keep you in that room

allowing only the essentials

not out of cruelty

but under the false illusion

they are protecting you

DSC00081

It is true that a door can shut out elements

restrict freedom

and bring with it the clouds of gray

like on a cold winters day

DSC00083

The beauty of a door

is that it is meant to open and close

one needs only to believe

they hold they key

and trust in me

we all do (hold the key)

DSC00082

appreciate the beauty of the door

understand that its presence

is not a menace

simply a challenge in that moment

tomorrow

tomorrow is guaranteed to come

and when it does

it is a brand new day

stay or walk away

for YOU

hold the key  (you really do)

to your destiny

October memory

October 13

I had such a happy excursion yesterday.  My husband with the two dogs, did some touring around the countryside near home.  It was a simply fantastic day!  What can I say, not much, I’d rather some the pictures with you…

Even in the last days of its bloom, this flower is an expression of nature’s glory.

IMG_0017

Nature’s colour palette is filled with the richness of the shades that so brilliantly say “autumn”

IMG_0065

Old markers in a newly discovered (to me) historic cemetery beckoned to me from the road, I had to explore.  The older the cemetery, the more serene. With the dazzling sunshine, and dappled shade this one was lovely.

IMG_0026

A tribute of another time, still sits proudly on a marker, its beauty may be faded, but it still exudes pulchritude and charm

IMG_0051

The riot of colour that filled my day had me exhilarated and filled with a joy that was near to bursting.  I love Canada and the four season it offers.

God resides in a prayerful Mind….. Evidence of the “Master’s” creativity was on full display yesterday.  From pictures I saw being posted yesterday on FB
(Facebook) we were not alone in our rediscovery  of the knockout day available to us yesterday.  Every day is filled with new discoveries.

Let me leave you a thanksgiving greeting I got this morning, I’m sorry the graphics did not  copy paste, but the verse is cute. click on pumpkin pie)

“the pursuit of happiness is the chase of a lifetime!”


TWAS THE NIGHT OF THANKSGIVING,
BUT I JUST COULDN’T SLEEP.
I TRIED COUNTING BACKWARDS,
I TRIED COUNTING SHEEP.

THE LEFTOVERS BECKONED –
THE DARK MEAT AND WHITE,
BUT I FOUGHT THE TEMPTATION
WITH ALL OF MY MIGHT.

TOSSING AND TURNING WITH ANTICIPATION,
THE THOUGHT OF A SNACK BECAME INFATUATION.
SO, I RACED TO THE KITCHEN, FLUNG OPEN THE DOOR,
AND GAZED AT THE FRIDGE, FULL OF GOODIES GALORE.
GOBBLED UP
TURKEY AND BUTTERED POTATOES,
PICKLES AND CARROTS, BEANS AND TOMATOES.

I FELT MYSELF SWELLING SO PLUMP AND SO ROUND,
‘TIL ALL OF A SUDDEN, I ROSE OFF THE GROUND.
I CRASHED THROUGH THE CEILING, FLOATING INTO THE SKY,
WITH A MOUTHFUL OF PUDDING AND A HANDFUL OF PIE.
BUT, I MANAGED TO YELL AS I SOARED PAST THE TREES….
HAPPY EATING TO ALL – PASS THE CRANBERRIES, PLEASE.
MAY YOUR STUFFING BE TASTY,
MAY YOUR
TURKEY BE PLUMP.
MAY YOUR POTATOES ‘N GRAVY HAVE NARY A LUMP.
MAY YOUR YAMS BE DELICIOUS.
MAY YOUR PIES TAKE THE PRIZE,
MAY YOUR THANKSGIVING DINNER STAY OFF OF YOUR THIGHS!!

HAPPY   THANKSGIVING   TO  ALL

Blessings – Matthew 5:1 and 6
