Happiness is…

story time — curiosity + patience

The girls watched silently, waiting for the music to come closer.  To their dismay, it stopped, and they were nowhere near figuring out where it was coming from.  They first heard the music when the old dresser was moved to where it now stood in the sun room.

Not just one of them had heard it, they all had. It reminded Kit of the music box her grandmother once had.  She looked all around the room, but there was no music box, or any other object that looked like one.

China’s eyes were big with wonder. The music had made her think of the time that the school had visited the big department store during the Christmas holidays.  The teacher had wanted them to see the big window display with all the coloured lights and sparkling snowflakes.  The elves had been busy in Santa’s workshop the happy music had filled the room as they happily hummed  while packing all the presents for Santa’s big night.

Did it have something to do with the old dresser?  If only they could get closer without making a lot of noise or drawing attention to themselves.  They were supposed to be in bed.  Ginger the eldest of the girls, was supposed to be doing her chores, but Kit saw her peeking out from the other room.  Everyone was interested.

“Bedtime girls, I’ll be in shortly to say goodnight.” sigh, they knew that it would be tomorrow before they would be given a clue or information.. If Q was coming to tuck them in… that meant, it was going to be lights out.  Scampering back to their respective rooms, they climbed back into bed.  Being patient was going to be hard.

As Q tucked them in, she whispered “tomorrow is another day, you will have lots of time to explore and look around” China and Kit whispered as Q moved on to see Chen-May and Leonie “what Precept do you think will help us be patient and allow things to progress at their own pace”  giggling China said, “Q is always reminding us of our lessons”  with that, both girls closed their eyes and let their anticipation and dreams carry them into the magical land  of sleep.

Why?

I tried, I wanted to

I even brought my pens with me, I planned it all, the lined pages,

pristine white, blank pages,

for days I even  practiced the different styles of lettering

anticipation high, time to doodle and write.

Yet when I got to where we were going,

Not once, did I use the pens to practice my lettering

The pads of blank pages, came home empty.

Why?

It is the journey, the living each day that is important, obviously, while away my time was filled with happy moments, new discoveries,  a sense of adventure and of course, the cherished company of a wonderful husband and our two frisky “canine children”

PL Precept # 18  Each moment is a turning point.

When we live in the NOW, there are no regrets.

PL Precept # 11  Always be with God

May happiness and good health bless your day today!

Me and rust

If there is rust, I’ll find it.  I love the way it grows and expands, changing as it ages. Ok it is not for everyone.  To my artist’s eye it has a melody all its very own. Left to slowly decompose, erode and oxidize  it has  patina and look that is unique, like a snowflake.  At least it does to my eye.

I have a whole section of film that is all rust.  For now it is part of my private collection.  When I want inspiration, I can play it back and let each image dance across the screen in slow motion. Oooohhh so powerful.

Smiles out at her friends.. that is why that expression that has been around for ages, is so fitting here… “to each his/her own”

Happy start of the week my lovelies.  May it be successful, productive and happy.

PL Precept #7  Everything exists in Relaltivity

lazy day musing

 

Spent a lazy day, painting and trying to resolve a technical problem on the PC.  Am  I the only one who asks, PC or Apple?  I have both, each has their own special features that I enjoy.  but neither satisfies me 100%

P1000693Such is the way of life.  A philosophical conversation years back, Can a husband and a lover be one and the same?  Or do you have to settle on which  qualities you want to spend the rest of your life with.

Don’t you just love the solid look of this old charmer, it has been so well looked after.  While someone wanted the top one, but has left it out in the elements, the inside of it is ruined.

P1000696

This beauty was ready to roll. The dealer wasn’t open when we happened by, and there was no signage on the vehicle.  So I was left with no choice but to steal a kiss and run. =^_^=

Our Honda Ridgeline was secure in the knowledge that she can accommodate all 4 us, in a way the  two seater could never do….You may love the wicked ones, but it is the solid good drives that keeps you humming from year to year. =^_^= .

P1000701 (1)

I appreciate a good-looking body, especially one that has been well looked after.  You can always tell when there is pride of ownership.  Today we take too much for granted.  Life is to enjoy, and living is about exploring and discovering. When we are internally happy, the world is a beautiful place.

PL Principle # 3 I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things.

PL Precept #10  Love yourself and Others.

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.

happyland 5.2.17

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
