Thursday door – dreams

Alexander Lautsyus January post

Door –      usually we think of a physical barrier that opens, closes, revolves, but what about the doorway to our dream states, or entrance to another realm.  When Alexander posted this picture in earlier January of this year, I was immediately transported to another place, a state of mind/Being.  I had no words to describe how it made me feel, it just spoke volumes to me.

I immediately texted him asking for permission to use this photo, this is a copy, to see his original post, please visit ice art Jan 22.18

The picture for me puts a visual on the “feeling” of some of my dreams.  His 1st picture in that blog, reminds me of when I am searching looking out, and this one I’ve posted, reminds me, or gives me a feeling of happiness and joy.  He was on Lake Ontario, he looked, he saw, and he captured.

Not a physical door, but definitely for me, a doorway, an experience of walking through to another “world”.  For “real” tangible doors, you need to link to Norm 2.0 and from there follow the links to all the other bloggers who post to this feature.

Thanks for sharing today, it is a beautiful day, and you are all part of my sunshine!


a special thanks to Alexander Lautsyus for allowing me to share his “works” with you

and to you Norm for indulging “my” love of all doors/doorways

PL Precept #1 Life is Art




Wednesday musings

perogies 1.24a

Perogies – finally after weeks of thinking about it, I got a package and did them up for lunch.  It has been years and years since I last had Perogies, were they as I remembered them..yes and no.  They did taste of potatoes, and this package said they were filled with 3 kinds of cheese.  All in all it was a good lunch. 4% sour cream, steamed veggies, sprinkled with garlic and seasoning.

Today was about “follow through” tomorrow’s lesson is about living a fulfilled life every day by utilizing things, money , knowledge/energy to their fullest.  Since we got the news that my husband’s illness would be something that we will have to adjust to, we are both working daily to ensure that we stay in a positive, and healthy “mode”.. part of this for both of us, is to remove clutter and negatives, and to rejoice in discovering or rediscovering people and things that we  like/enjoy.

Perogies, is a small something, but an example of wanting the experience again, so I did it.  I have also been diligent in removing items that simply clutter, and no longer hold interest in my day-to-day.  As my husband is fond of saying, “if you do need it, or something like it, you need only go and get whatever it is, when you need it”  It has taken awhile but he has said it often enough that I now “think it” and I am taking action.

It is amazing how much better I feel with each new truck load of merchandise that leaves,  there is still a lot more to de-clutter, but I am making headway.  In doing so, I have rediscovered a new excitement in my creativity, my imagination is able to move at lightening speed when I least expect it to.

Plus I enjoy knowing that someone else will find the crafting tools, etc. that I no longer want and  it will flame their creativity.  What a win, win.

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.

neither saw the chest hidden further in

from where they had been standing.


PL Precept # 18  Each moment is a Turning Point


NB * ongoing

Happy Monday


How nice, another birthday card.  Rosie sipped on her tea, and listened as the movers grunted and called out to each other about the best way to get whatever it was they were moving into the house.  Her birthdays usually came and went without much fanfare, but this time, she had to admit, all the activity of getting the “girls” settled in was a lot of fun.

Each was so different, and the luggage and pieces of furniture that were arriving each day, was so fascinating.  So far, the silver dragon sculpture had been the best, although the very old roll top desk was also interesting. packages of odd sizes and shapes arrived day and night.  She was so glad she had accepted the offer to be here.

Even her old chest of drawers fit in, her room was big enough for her to enjoy the privacy of her room when she needed it.  Yet close enough to the kitchen and public area, for her to keep an eye on the coming and goings of the participants in the project that had brought them all together.

Birthdays were such happy times.  She wondered how old she was… but then, catching sight of herself in the mirror, she smiled.  Who cares she thought.. It is how I feel, and darn it all, I feel pretty good.

roses for Rosie

*knock *knock…” Roses for Ms Rosie”…. said a voice…

The day just couldn’t get any better thought Rosie.  Every day was so full of surprises.!

We hope you had a grand day dear friends… join us again for tidbits on Rosie and her friends.

PL Precept #15  All is a mirror


a dragon appears

dragon 1

Yes she knew he was not real, of course he was made out of pewter, and the blue gemstones were not the best… or so she was told…  then why did she feel that he watched her every move.  She wanted ChenMay to be there, but ChenMay was not with her, ChenMay was in another part of the grounds.

She hadn’t seen him at first, and now she didn’t know what had made her look down.  As soon as the sunlight had gleamed on his eyes, she had known to stop.  She searched her mind to try to recall what ChenMay had told her about the dragon.  The dragon was part of the Wizardology   classes that ChenMay gave each fall to new Apprentices.

dragon 2She looked closer, and saw the defined scales all over his body, he was majestic.

“Oh there you are” ChenMay’s voice drifted towards them, as she approached where they were standing.  “You’ve met ” she smiled as she bent to pick up the dragon.

Leonie would say later, that one minute the dragon was on the ground, and the next he was gone.  ChenMay bent down, and when she stood, the dragon was gone. ” I saw him” she would exclaim, “he really was there, his scales shone in the sunlight. ”

ChenMay would only say, “dragon’s play, dragon’s fly away” then chuckle and turn away.

oh dear, oh dear,

what a silly tale

a dragon who can be seen

 then simply


can this be true

what need I do

to have the dragon

appear to me

There is a world of wonder all around us!

Sunday roses

roses 6.22.17 PA

How wild does their garden grow

For years now I come to explore

each passing year brings new colour in the rows

 see the roses are in full bloom right now

&  cherries are forming on the trees

come back in a week or two

the Saskatoon berries will be a feast

bring friends, this garden is here for us

nice meeting you Mr Crow,

my  name is Jay

in a flash of blue he was off

cawing as he flew

I’ll be back to  see you soon

Rosco chuckled as he flew higher up the tree

life is good when

 friends drop in showing appreciation and enjoy their visit

he liked being called Mr. Crow

Mr. indeed, and he chuckled some more

could he be getting old

in full voice, he cawed and called out

Happy Sunday everyone!
