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.

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.

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…..

Lost and Found

X nov 23b_007Lost to us is the simplicity of yesterday

Lost is the innocence of your younger years

X nov 23b_001Lost is the time when we were happy to simply explore and enjoy the world around us, where everything was new, being friends meant secrets shared and fun and laughter was just being together, free to play out our dreams and fantasies.

Where are those moments now?  Do you still cherish your dreams, do you make time for that young boy/girl you once were..

X nov 23b_013Today I found a quiet place, far away where nature was at play, and the day was playing out like a long forgotten song.  I watched while a bear patiently waited for the fish to come her way, I heard the sea gulls call out as they flew across the skies.  In the distance, I spied a small cottage waiting to be discovered.

X nov 23b_009To my surprise, as I got closer, I saw two chipmunks sharing nuts on the porch.  I’d found a bit of paradise and it was all mine to enjoy.

X nov 23c_002For a time anyway – after all, happiness and beauty should be shared.  Today I found a quiet corner, a place where imagination and dreams can be relived.  Link will follow at the end of this blog.  It isn’t enough to do things just to make yourself happy =^_^=  I did meet a fellow traveler while I explored.  He too was taking in the beauty of the build.

X nov 23b_006Like two ships that pass in the night, we exchanged greetings and moved on, each respectful of the other’s space.  No matter we were in the same place, our photographs I’m sure were very different.  Just like in life, even when we stand shoulder to shoulder and look out at the world, each person will draw their own impressions.  That is what makes life so interesting.
