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.

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?
Upper New York State
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.
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.
A day spent with and in Nature, alone, in meditation and quiet
is a special day indeed!
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
they stood rooted on the spot
to be uncovered
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
walking deeper into the gardens.
neither saw the chest hidden further in
from where they had been standing.

Barber Shop in NY State
main street of Oswego,NY
I knew no one was home
so I took time to roam
explore, and enjoy the decor
she’s had her doors done up out of wood
I turned to the Ford
I admit it had a charm
and, it wasn’t in a barn
this is the babe
who welcomed us in
when these ladies, give with the charm
I can’t help but beam
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
