Day 9 PL Calendar

It is interesting because it is different

Even if someone totally disagrees with you or does things differently, you may learn something from them.  Avoid getting trapped in a mindset.  “This is the way, it has to be” and free your mind to consider other possibilities.

fly into the sunshine

glide on the smallest of breeze

know the ease of flight

through air and matter,

when you believe

with all your might

that the Universe and you are ONE

in the blink of an eye

time is redefined

PL Calendar day 6 (2019)

Past, present or future, always remember to be sincere and honest

At any time, the place where you are standing at that moment is the stage upon which you must express yourself in relation to your position or status.


In any form of expression, there are often many components that come together to get a desired effect, or to form the base for which you are about to elaborate on.  Even then, the presentation can take so many forms depending on the direction you are going at that point in time.

That is what makes life so darn interesting.  That is what makes getting up each morning so fun, yes fun.  Means everyday brings new experiences, new endings, beginnings, with each step we take, we mature, we grow. Our ability to navigate the world around us gets that much experiences.

Hey yesterday, I actually went through a car wash on my own,  I know. Most of you have done it a zillion times.  It was new for me.  I was so chuffed. =^_^=

Have a good day everyone, bom dia a todos.

Graffiti art

Segunda-feira, Greetings everyone, Bom Dia – What is art?

In PL, Precept #1  Life is Art and because we believe that each individual is unique, that says that each person, will have their own creativity.  Their own way of addressing life’s opportunities, and deciding how they will express their personal creativity.

If I had cropped the above picture in a different way, it would have been simply a work of art.  Someone’s way of making a statement, expressing their “need” at the time.  Because it was done on someone elses’ property, we call it graffiti,  The person expressed themselves but at the expense of a neighbour or the city .  “Art”  in this case, the act of expression, made or makes a statement beyond the person’s creativity with a paint can, it says that this person has a disregard for his /her neighbour’s or communities property.

We all make choices, each and every moment of the day.  At the end of the day, only you know if your true intentions were expressed, or if you made choices that perhaps could have been expressed in a different way.

PL Calendar 29   Be cheerful and easy-going.  Everything has a way of turning out alright in the end.  Relax and always try to think positively

Chop Suey Tuesday 18th

oct journal pageHappy September 18th everyone.

First I want to thank you all or your birthday wishes.  I was away for a birthday outing yesterday, when I came back I was overwhelmed by all the messages and good wishes.  Wow, it is going to be super awesome year, I have been jet propelled into a new year.  I am truly blessed, I say thank you each and every day!

oct rust 1 page

While some look for pristine, blank pages, I work at making mine look old, and sometimes, like here, I strive to make rust, and dirty a page, this is my playtime. Yesterday was spent visiting places in west of downtown Montreal, looking for paint, inks, and any and all other artistic, creative tools, to be found,  It was an all day event that I got to share with two like-minded friends, needless to say, it was a lot of fun.

Every person is unique, we each and every one of us, expresses ourselves in our own way.  What rocks one person, can be a total turn off to the other, yet when we are on a search and find mission, the enthusiasm of the other person’s excitement when they have found something that has fired up their enthusiasm for their craft, that is catching.  It is smiles all around.

In our travels as we headed back towards Ottawa, I found Catnip who I knew would be perfect for my October Fright journal.

Sharing happiness with friends is a blessing.  What better way to share a birthday celebration, Catnip will always remind me that my 2018 birthday was not only  great.  It lasted for days,  Today I am off on another adventure.

PL Calendar for 18th.  Look forward to what’s ahead

There is no use brooding over the past.  Always try to begin each day anew with a fresh outlook.

Forever Young

Alo May 2_003

Some times I am just too cute for words!  =^_^=

Day 2  PL Calendar –  Be forever Young and Seek New Challenges

The world is constantly in motion and never rests.  Keep your senses sharp and be ready to adapt to the every changing world.

I  so truly believe in these words.  One of the reasons I enjoy Second Life so much (virtual world) click here is the opportunities it gives me to express my artistic self, as well, as be anyone, or any “creature” I want.  The  creative opportunities are endless.

Every day, we live our lives usually dealing with the immediate needs that come our way.  To keep our senses sharp and be ready to adapt, we have to be willing to “let go” of old habits, and to allow new ideas and expressions to colour our world.

Little steps.  One day at a time.

In the PL community there is always someone to listen.  Someone to “help” .. someone to “listen”

Last year when my Mother was bidding farewell to her years on earth, my sister who was staying with her. Passed the time, drawing and colouring, memories of another time.

Change happen, with “progress” comes destruction, to “make way” for “infill”  buildings that are meant to fill in where older homes , single family homes with laneways, garages that held the cars that used to fit inside them, and usually have pretty front lawns, and backyards, big enough for small patios and gardens, either filled with flowers in season, or vegetables.

Now these homes when their owners pass away, are taken over by builders who tear them down, and put in two homes on a lot that was meant for one.  Usually, architecture that is cold and sterile.  Forget a lawn or garden spaces. Cement, pavement and more cold man-made materials, usually in various shades of grays and blacks.  Garages if there, are usually part of the main floor, still usually too small for the bigger cars of today, so they end up always outside parked on the single space of the paved front of the dwelling.

Sad, but that is progress. If you are near, or can easily get to green space.  Treasure it. Take the time to enjoy it. Listen to the birds when they visit (if they do) enjoy the fresh earthly smells of spring,  and watch as the young flowers unfold to embrace another season of “life”

Life, can be fleeting.  Live in the moment.  Enjoy each and every second of your day.  don’t wait till it fades away.

PL Precept #11    Always be with God.

PL Precept # 16  All things progress and develop.

PL #18  Each Moment is a turning point.
