Day 30   PL Calendar

USE YOUR RESULTS TO MAKE THE NEXT TIME EVEN BETTER

Whether things turn out perfectly or not, the important thing is to take what you’ve learned and apply it the next time.

Standing under the branches of the towering trees

looking out, to my left and then  my right

shades of green everywhere, bright sunlight dancing through

outstretched limbs that reach for the sky, in prayer

how can I cry, it is

so peaceful, so serene

alone with my thoughts,  surrounded by nature’s embrace

life is full, it is plentiful, it is full of grace

a child of the Universe, I am, ONE with GOD

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.

after midnight

Turkey, Mardin

This is a picture of Mardin, Turkey.  What struck me was how different it was from anything I have seen in the part of the world I live in,  I just wasn’t sure when I saw it, if I was drawn in, or even if it was real. There is not a tree in sight, a park, a piece of land, nothing.  Someone had commented that it looked like a picture from a fairy tale book.

Austria,Tyrol

This is Austria,lots of green, yet it is still a world I have yet to discover. No matter where we are, whether or not we travel to these far away places or we stay at home, we are blessed with living in an era where we can meet people from all over the world, right on our doorstep.

We need only be open to the experience.

How often have I walked past a stranger, who looked interesting, and not said a word, even though, he/she looked interesting and we had exchanged a nod or smile. We all do it. We let the moment pass.

It is in opening the window, or door to new opportunities that we discover new vistas, new ways of seeing life, Sharing good conversation with a friend is a genuine moment worth remembering.

A good friend is not one that comes and goes with the blink of an eye.  Nor can we go out and search for a friend, they come into our lives like blessings, treasures, gifts from the Universe.  Like anything else, they will grow with time,  if the connection is real, you will have a friend for a lifetime.  It all begins with a hello.  Life is…. lived… one moment at a time. Once a seed is planted, how well it grows, depends on us.

no more… no less.
