Life is full of wonders.  We need only look around us for the remnants of a time gone by.  The world is a wonderful place, and we have had such a colourful and creative past.  Today we live every day, starting each morning with a brand new canvas.

what have we here

0171df704da51738db3f967c12e72114 What have we here..

It seems it was called the King Tut of barn finds.

An auction house in France announced it would be presenting 60 rare vintage, exotic cars, found tucked away in western France.

I know how I felt watching this clip, did it tug at any of your emotions, did you have a sense of something m perhaps shades of sadness, Was it just the music,or the visual.

These amazing pieces of steel and craftmanship were once new, the were the accumulation of hours of work.  The creators, the builders,designers,trades that had to pull together to build these machines of pleasure,

The cars, were admired, driven, used for commuting, and any and all other modes of transportation – finally they came to rest here in their final resting place.

Restored and found 50 years later.. If you are wanting more information, it is the automobile collection of Roger Baillon (he was a French transport business owner collection classic cars, to start  a museum, but in the 70’s he business went down, and he had to sell 50 cars to pay the bills)

The cars or a real find, Many of a history, and the fact that this collection was lost and left to be embraced by nature, for car affectionados, it is causing a real stir. Imagine seeing Talbots, Delahayes and a 1956 Maserati A6G Gran Sport in one location.

For me.. although not a hoarder, I like having my tools, and pieces that give me pleasure or a sense of being able at anytime to delve into a favourite pastime, or activity.

Seeing this clip stirred me into doing a tidy up.  Big clean up.  I realized that I had far too much in the way of material things/objects… in clearing away the clutter.. and things that have long lost their moment with me… I am making way for new beginnings and freeing space for improving the quality of what is happening in my life now.

note.. the Ferrari 250 sold for 14.2 million on Feb. 6,2015 at auction.

to see all the cars.. visit   choic

Life is to be lived in the present….. not the past…

but in appreciating what was, we can make better choices in the present

I love and appreciate each and everyone of you.

Nature’s natural beauty

prehnite, a stone that heals the healer, indues deep meditation,useful in visualization, and is powerful in contracting the higher selfHave you ever been enraptured by a crystal.  Mesmerized by the dancing light that is caught and redirected by the facets natural or man made.  This is a picture of Prehnite.  It is said that this mineral, heals the healer enhances precognition and inner knowing while aiding in accessing higher spiritual beings.  It has also been said that it induces deep meditation and is useful in visualization.  This mineral is on my “to see”  list next time we are visiting the museum not far from here. (note to self… mark calendar now for the Rock and Mineral show in Bancroft this summer!)

crystal tip

Somewhere in your home, jewelry box, desk drawer, do you have a stone or personal amulet.  We all have different ways of thinking and feeling, some of us will readily admit to having a slight leaning towards the magic of crystals and symbols, while others will deny any interest, yet they carry around a special coin or button a souvenir or memory from another time.  For awhile I had so many boxes, drawers and displays of the many minerals I’d collected either for display or wearing it was silly.  I really had too many, yes too many, how can I say that, or why do I say that? Simple, once you have so much of something that you no longer see all the wonderful treasures you collected, and barely remember then till you actually lay eyes on them again, then in my book, you’ve passed into the realm of a collector or hoarder.  If that mineral, gemstone or object that you once desired is now just sitting gathering dust, or in  a box packed away from the light and air that it grew in, why are you still holding on to it.

Labradorite, powerful protector in the mineral kingdom, protects against negativity

Did you know that Labradorite is the most powerful protector of the mineral kingdom, creating a shielding force throughout the aura.  It strengthens natural energies from within and protects against   negativity.  If you are going to explore alternate levels of consciousness, this is the mineral to have at hand.  Have you noticed, that I am tying in the natural wonder of the earths gifts to states of mind that we seek in our daily lives or patterns that we replay over the many “cycles” we live here on earth.  I stand guilty before you of such behaviour.  It was another of my personal lessons on letting go. LOL it wasn’t easy, it started years ago, and I am still in the process today… my “collections” were so many and varied.  Each time I did “let go” and either give away to friends/family or simply pass along, I felt an amazing sense of release, and believe it or not, if I was there to see the “objects” being admired and enjoyed, I’d swear that I saw the object glow in the light of being appreciated again.  There I’ve said it.  I may have owned it, but I no longer appreciated it.  I’m talking of objects here, but dear reader, stop and think…… this is behaviour, we often without thinking,  comes out when we are dealing with family and friends.  It is not intentional, it just happens.

Long Time friendships are a two way mirror, a gift … a blessing in our lives.  In the maturing process, I’ve realized just how precious a good friendship is.   Friends come in many shapes and sizes, at the core of a lasting friendship, is a bond of trust and love that endures the test of time.  Let’s enjoy and appreciate the personalities and differences we all have.
