What a

What a difference a day makes.

I used to suggest to clients that keeping a journal, even if it was sentence, or a word to express  how they/you felt at that moment, or about the day.  Not everyone likes to write, or wants more words.

Since in PL, (Perfect Liberty) we say,  “Life is art”  (Precept #1) I began to suggest if not a word, a sketch, or picture, something doodled.  It doesn’t really matter, no one will see or read what is written, unless you share. It is for YOU from YOU.

At the time, it seems insignificant, but that simple “action” leads to appreciation and gratitude.  As the days progress (nights) something beautiful starts to happen, you see what “was” in such a different light.  No two days are the same. Never.  Moments cannot be relived.

Even if I end up adding only one bit of shading or colour tonight, this little card will have another dimension.  AND yes, even if I don’t get to do anything with the card, today, tomorrow or the day after, I will SEE the card differently with each passing day.

A”story” of my own making…..    Happy sunshine, and many creative opportunities be afforded you today.  If it is evening when you read this, may you be blessed with a contentment of peace in your sleep.

362a2e5c57715554d428ea5b20027b59A friend asked me the other day.. what was I reading, I replied I was reading the Jewish Pleasure Principle by Rabbi Dr. Reuven P. Bulka.  “No, that isn’t what I meant, aren’t you reading a “real” book”

Now  having  known this friend a long time I knew what she meant, she was asking if I was reading a “leisure” book, to her the hardcover, was not “leisure” but a text-book.  A publication that speaks of formulating a Judaic approach to pleasure,attitudes to suffering, depression and mourning etc.was not her idea of “leisure”.

However the reading of a good stimulating journal that explores  and attempts to put balanced perspective through an investigation of primary sources, to me…. is interesting and I enjoy my discoveries.   Pleasure itself cn be viewed within the framework of the totality of life.  As a writer, I thrive on reading what someone else has put to paper, especially on topics that I find thought-provoking and interesting.

Yes I do enjoy a good  novel, where the settings are exotic, or can stimulate the gray cells into providing me a dreamy far away place where the drama of someone’s life unfolds, casts a spell and has me in that world for days until the story ends.

I had an interesting conversation with a young lady the other night, she boldly talked to me about intimate moments in her life, and I took it in and listened.  She spoke of loneliness and I flashed back to my younger years, we all live the same emotions in our own way.  We are not all story tellers, but we are characters in or own “stories” (lives).  How we play out our days, and create our endings… now that is another story.

cabin on the lake by D.Rogers photography

oh…what a find the perfect place to be…………….uh huh….. not for me….  what….. the water, the privacy the quiet cabin in the woods by a lake.. nope….  I would find this stifling, I wouldn’t like the dampness, or the bugs.

Tree house perfection

No, this is for me, open, bright, small, with just enough place for  1 maybe 2, but up near the clouds where the mind can explore and where sight and sound have no  bounderies. oh man…………….yesssss

Wherever you are today, whatever you are doing…. enjoy …. take it in….  make it yours…..
