362a2e5c57715554d428ea5b20027b59A friend asked me the other day.. what was I reading, I replied I was reading the Jewish Pleasure Principle by Rabbi Dr. Reuven P. Bulka.  “No, that isn’t what I meant, aren’t you reading a “real” book”

Now  having  known this friend a long time I knew what she meant, she was asking if I was reading a “leisure” book, to her the hardcover, was not “leisure” but a text-book.  A publication that speaks of formulating a Judaic approach to pleasure,attitudes to suffering, depression and mourning etc.was not her idea of “leisure”.

However the reading of a good stimulating journal that explores  and attempts to put balanced perspective through an investigation of primary sources, to me…. is interesting and I enjoy my discoveries.   Pleasure itself cn be viewed within the framework of the totality of life.  As a writer, I thrive on reading what someone else has put to paper, especially on topics that I find thought-provoking and interesting.

Norway,Telemark

Yes I do enjoy a good  novel, where the settings are exotic, or can stimulate the gray cells into providing me a dreamy far away place where the drama of someone’s life unfolds, casts a spell and has me in that world for days until the story ends.

I had an interesting conversation with a young lady the other night, she boldly talked to me about intimate moments in her life, and I took it in and listened.  She spoke of loneliness and I flashed back to my younger years, we all live the same emotions in our own way.  We are not all story tellers, but we are characters in or own “stories” (lives).  How we play out our days, and create our endings… now that is another story.

cabin on the lake by D.Rogers photography

oh…what a find the perfect place to be…………….uh huh….. not for me….  what….. the water, the privacy the quiet cabin in the woods by a lake.. nope….  I would find this stifling, I wouldn’t like the dampness, or the bugs.

Tree house perfection

No, this is for me, open, bright, small, with just enough place for  1 maybe 2, but up near the clouds where the mind can explore and where sight and sound have no  bounderies. oh man…………….yesssss

Wherever you are today, whatever you are doing…. enjoy …. take it in….  make it yours…..

ole’ Mac…had a farm, e -i- e- i -O

cow  by tessbwijk - flickr

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.

Vietnam, via Celia M Paulo - PinterestWhatever is happening in our world today, thanks for stopping by and sharing this moment with me.  This last photograph was posted by Celia M. 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
