knock …knock…

you can knock all you want

but you can’t come in…

P1000725 (1)

so you found me

you can look but you can’t see

Someone was here before you

you need only look to find the clue

P1000723

shuttered and closed, I may be

but still I leave you with history

you can see it, just by looking at me

P1000720 (1)

I can be found anywhere

you need only dare

to look beyond the main streets

please believe that I still live and breathe

behind the door, you will see my core

the memory of another time

still lives within the walls behind the door

my floors still wear the marks of what was,

in the many years before, I am waiting

please, don’t stare, come in… and close the door.

Happy land

dragon, start of.. 4.30.17

Once upon a time a dragon came to visit.  “Oh” said I, ” what pretty colours you are! ”

“hmmmp” he said, “I’m just passing through”

So, I took a picture of him and posted him on Instagram, I went about my day and didn’t think much more about him.  I was having a “dragon” kind of day, and really wasn’t that interested in what he had to say.

The next day, I was busy with activities that I couldn’t put away.  Today was the day, so I had to be present and social in a “family” kind of way.  By mid day, after guests were gone and I was now back home on my own.  All I could think of was that I wanted to pray.  It was pouring rain, the clouds were bleak and gray, but nothing was going to stand in my way. The quiet, tranquility of the church, the peace of love and community, was drawing me, like a moth to a flame.

Silently I prayed, my words and thoughts, came, they flowed, they flew into the air, the heaviness, the pain, slowly drained away.  PL Precept # 11  Always be with God.

PL Precept # 5  One’s Self is Lost by being Emotional

PL Principle #2  I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather.  Rather I will always be creative and will look for short comings in my own thinking and actions,

When I came home, the dragon looked at me and winked.  The brat I thought.  I reached out and with   steady hand, and knowing actions, his friends came to light.

Just like that… the dragon smiled, his friends pranced and I was smitten with their charm.  My grin went from ear to ear… life is good when we believe and trust in God

chasing the Mad Hatter

Dentelle comes out to play 4.1.17_008.png

It all started out innocently enough. I heard about a place where there was a possibility I could run into, or meet up with the Mad Hatter, and if really lucky maybe Alice herself.   had to crawl through a door to do that, and fall down a big hole, but I was game.

Dentelle comes out to play 4.1.17_002

Once there what had started out easy enough, was proving to be a big confusing, there were no road signs, in fact, there had been a note earlier in the game saying I should follow the path.  And it would be more fun if I had my settings at night.. but you can see, I wasn’t that brave.. I kept to travel in the daylight.

I went in to explore the first building I found, it was empty, but fully furnished I was able to warm myself by a roaring fire.  I wasn’t tempted to rest on the bed.. but I did sit a spell on a chair in what appeared to be a bedroom with a lot of books.

When I found my way out of the big spooky house, I sat for awhile hoping that I would be given a sign, or someone would come by… no one came.  I did meet a guard at the entrance to the red queen’s palace, but she was no where to be seen.  I dared sit on her throne.

I made my way over hills, and through a huge valley of coloured mushrooms, I could hear activity, but didn’t see anyone.  When I came across the tea party, no one was there, all the desserts were out, and the tea still hot, but not a soul in sight.

The windmill was beckoning with its welcoming lights at the door, before calling it a night, I thought I go explore.  Sigh.. a woman’s work is never done.. I had to mend and sew without any proper light before I could go to bed.

Meanwhile, while I was out exploring, Little Q was at home enjoying a night by the fire, with not a thought in her head to leave her cosy home

Q got a new hairdo 4.2.17_001

No two people use “time” in the same way.  The trick is to find what is “right for you, and make time to do it.  Every day we get to create our own “chapter and verse”, it was a grand week-end.  Now, we have a whole week ahead. Happy start of the week everyone.

Q got a new hairdo 4.2.17_004

I am little Ms Q.  and I luv YOU… from my virtual home, I bid you a good night.

looking back

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

It really was just another day on the road.  We stopped, and I got this feeling that we were being watched.  You cannot see in this picture, but in the darkness of the woodlands, was a deer checking us out….  well ok, I can’t say for sure it was a deer, but it had four legs, and piercing eyes.

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

I tried for another look, at that time I was using a digital Minolta, I confess that I am not a stealthy hunter when I cross over brush and fallen logs to get a closer look.  At the time, I didn’t know about  phone cameras where I could see what I was stalking.  It is in clearing an area on a shelf for a new acquisition ( an airplane clock) that I found the delinquent disk, with pictures from “another time”- labelled Bancroft.

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

From the pictures of the interior of the darkened woodland, I see I was determined .. and was not going to just walk away.  I’m  happy to say that this stubborn streak is still with me, much to the chagrin of others.   Now looking back many years later, what I have to show for this adventure of mine, is pictures of a forest woodland that held on to its mystery and mystic, why share the pictures, it’s a case of you had to be there… really there to appreciate the moment. =^_^=

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA  – gone gone gone, replaced many moons ago.

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

I have no idea what this last picture is all about, but decided to include it since there is so much black in the other pictures.  As a photographer, you have to accept that some of your artist captures, are not always, A1, but for sure, they all capture that moment in time, when you thought Ah Ha….

some one, or some thing

watched in the shadow of the trees

drawn to the feeling of being watched

I let myself be captured by the slight movement of the leaves

as always when totally caught up in the moment

my heart did a little dance

my sense of awareness went into over drive

would we connect

would my lens find its mark

no matter, I had to pursue my  need

to capture what I couldn’t really see

this adrenalin is pure, it comes from within

the artist in me is alert

for in a nano second, I’ll press connect

to the instrument in my hands

the moment passes, the thrill happened

will the climax be complete

when I look at the

picture on the screen

no matter what

I lived the moment

and the picture

that I will see

will be

a forever reminder

that in that second

I was part of life

in that space and time

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Do you believe that you are always connected to the Universe, and that, there are times, you are drawn to produce, or create something, because it just feels right..?  I believe that we are all artists in our own way, sometimes, what we do, is clear, the picture, a “master piece”  It conveys something to the artist and the viewers alike.  Other times, it is a reflection of a moment that came and went.  No more, no less.

Just be

Raven – crow

Crow and wolf

friends, forever,

you are my brother, my kin

we wander and forage together

I  see above the trees

you bring foes to their knees

together our life begins

no enemy will be let in

crow kangaly.ru

Wolves and crows have long been known to socialize.  A crow/raven is smart, and  wise, often acting as a scout, when they are out and about together.  Amongst themselves, the black bird will share with friends, and spread the word when it finds something to “crow” about.  Ravens are said to activate the energy of magic and links it to our will and intentions. When we accept the Raven/crow,  we are helped to take unformed thoughts and to make them reality.

One of my earlier stories featured, Rocco a black crow that came into our lives, and with his strong personality, he took us on some wonderful adventures in a forest not far from our home,  It was with his guidance that I met the most interesting “personalities and characters” that dwelt in the forest, on the floor and in the trees.

Imagination is a wonderful blessing.  Through the raven I have learned and heard many stories come to life within my inner realm of words.  What is it about the crow/raven that fascinates some yet totally repels another.  No one really knows.  I find them to be my kin, I love their conversation, and their opinionated calls.  When they come together to enjoy some social time, they can be very lively and vocal…. when they are deep in thought and searching, their silent energy can be intoxicating, for they focus with determination, and fly with their radar on.  All their sense in alert mode.  They remember friends, and know their foe.  In a study done it was determined that the New Caledonian Crow can make inferences about the behavior of hidden animals in its environment, an ability previously observed ony in humans (Los Angeles Times)

They can be ornery and loud, but who can say they are never loud or get ornery.  For me, when the crows come back and begin to tell their tales, I know that spring is on its way.  Always they come back, they crow, they call, and when I finally appear, they tell me of their holiday, and I smile from ear to ear, .. they have so much to say.

Buen dia, Good day everyone!

My inspiration today was this wonderful door handle I found. It is the picture, the door, the whole enchilada! This capture has personality plus.  Door knobs, handles are fascinating, the vast variety seen when one searches them out is mind-blowing. Artistic statements .. not necessarily on their own, they are, but somehow the charm, the “statement” is in the marriage of the hardware to the door itself.  When this was new, I doubt it would have had the same fascination for me, but it has aged, and its appearances has been enhanced with age.

door handle

I looked at a lot of pictures of door knobs and handles, I have a Pinterest board of Doors, there are many beautiful pieces in all shapes and sizes.  Some wonderfully preserved.  But this is the one I wanted, this is the one that spoke to me.  It sent my mind off into story land, I imaged it talking to me, wishing me welcome. Smiles, the door handle is a wizard in disguise. Lean closer, hear the tale he spins to beckon you in, behind his sturdy ancient weather worn door.

Enter through this door

watch your step there is no floor

inside you’ll find the years of wear

you’ve allowed to gather on your earthly form

do you dare face the dust and debris

on the pages of your life, worn and torn

from constant use and abuse.

door knocker

oh, will the door not open

please, use the knocker

the sound will be heard within

you need only want the door to open

and it will

if there is a lock, it is because we put it there

key, antique

We loved with all our heart,

we were blessed with happiness and bliss

and for whatever reason, it was lost

so to  protect our fragile heart

we put it under lock and key

key,old

time passes, life around us changes, and so do we

but somehow, we don’t want to use the key

our heart still beats and longs to be free

what was…. was… we now know we can never go back

we simply are not the same person we were back then

trust the desires and longing of your heart

trust the person you have  become

door to the sea

Love is beautiful

Love is being alive

Love is the freedom to be

Love is living a life in Perfect Liberty

Love is us

Love is you, me

we are ONE

God is Love.

idyllic & surreal

time clocks

While not everyone, enjoys surrealistic art, it is so often mind-blowing and fascinating, that it is hard to not look at it, gazing into it, trying to absorb or discover what it is about the picture that draws your attention.  Imagine  the artist who pulled this piece of art together.

art, visual

Being a visual person, I find it fascinating to see what someone else has seen and in turn,  put it out there for me to discover,  It would be nice if we could see into each other’s “head” to see for ourselves what someone else has seen.  however, while the person who puts their visualization to pen or to paint to show us, there is no guarantee that we will see or feel the same emotions and exhilaration that the artist did ………   We are all just so unique.    Yes we sleep, wake up, and eat like everyone else in a manner of speaking… but..what we get out of these actions is different to each of us.
