Thursday doors

The fascination of a door.  I loved that the lace curtain still hung on the door.

This doorway was further away, however, I couldn’t resist a capture so I could revisit later..  Had someone built a fort for the children to enjoy, or… was it an old structure, repurposed.  The character of places found when exploring other landscapes far from the city. Absolute heaven.

Eartha my travelling companion, shares in the delights of taking that secondary road, the quest for adventure, the joy of a discovery.  We did have a final destination and arrived soon enough.  But, not before we found another gem.

The past is part of our present.

PL calendar day 16

Avoid being careless or overconfident.

Even though you have put your best effort into doing something you still may have made some mistakes.  That is why it is important to always work with a prayerful mind.

Why would someone put an old tire there?

I sit high when driving, we have a truck.  I as struck by the vegetation and rooftops as I travelled how 43, going east.

It was a beautiful day as you can see.  The miles slipped silently by as I rode along taking in the views.  It was a “me” day.  A day to allow my thoughts to come and go, my only objective to watch the road, and take in the beauty around me.

hwy 43 9.16.17a

Farmland as far as the eye could see.  Small villages, and towns, expanse of fields waiting for harvest.  Rural Ontario. (250km)  Lots of time to entertain my thoughts.

PL Precept # 15  All is a Mirror    –  I sought tranquility and peaceful surrounding.  The Universe granted my wish.  I enjoyed conversation and friendship along the way, then back in the truck  as I continued on my way………….. the steady hum of the tires and visual delights as Nature provided the beginning colours of her  fall palette.

Just before the final stretch, I stopped for fresh produce and discovered a new fruit.  Ground cherries.  physalis longifolia

Enjoy each new day, give thanks for the opportunities that come your way.  Life is good.

ground cherries

A day spent with and in Nature, alone, in meditation and quiet

is a special day indeed!

Chop Suey Saturday

off in the distance,

under the afternoon skies

they saw the same grouping

that they were looking at

just down the path

half covered by vines

background 7.29.17

Neither spoke

they stood rooted on the spot

another mystery

to be uncovered

journey doll 7.29.17c

Yvette arrived earlier

Clementine was due next week

excitement was building

Rosie promised she would

let them explore her

chest of drawers

they still had no idea

where the music came from

it happened when she was

working in her room,

and now, double statues

3 maidens high above

and 3 maidens on the ground

somewhere there was a clue

quietly no words spoken

they turned

walking deeper into the gardens.

chest or coffin 7.22.17

neither saw the chest hidden further in

from where they had been standing.

Barber Shop in NY State

main street of Oswego,NY

A stop along the way

p1000383knock, knock

I knew no one was home

so I  took time to roam

explore, and  enjoy the decor

p1000381will you look at this doll

she’s had her doors done up out of wood

p1000377with no Chevy in sight

I turned to the Ford

I admit it had a charm

and, it wasn’t in a barn

p1000375

this is the babe

who welcomed us in

when these ladies, give with the charm

I can’t help but beam

with delight

I raise a glass to the bad ass

owners who track them down

and give them new life

PL Precept #7    Everything exists in relativity

each picture, shows a piece of art, someone made time, to reconstruct, or build

these gems for us to enjoy.

on my part, appreciation, and gratitude is sent out to them for their time and efforts

just reliving my visit brought back a big smile.

There is something to be said about looking out over the water into the hills, clear blue skies. white fluffy clouds, and time to simply be. It is important to make the time for yourSELF
