Lunar Dog Year

Year 2018 —— Dog (earth )

Dogs are capable and knowledgeable, and it is not unusual to see Dog people in high demand in the job market.  Dogs like to work at whatever career they choose.  Prince William, Elvis, Cher, George Gershwin, Mother Teresa, were born in Dog years

As a partner Dogs are extremely loyal  although they think they know best, it is fortunate that they are usually open-minded. and will be open to advice. Generally speaking with their sensitive and compassionate heart, they do well in occupations or careers that “serve” or work in the best interest of others. ie. teachers, charity workers, doctors etc.

Unlike other Dog years the Earth Dog is less idealistic than most Dogs, the Earth element makes them practical enough they don’t lose sight of reality.

In China dogs are usually associated with justice and compassion.

We are living at a time, when the plus, positive characteristics of the Dog, could stand us in good staid.



let’s rumble

ohhhh, you’ve heard the news.. We have a new way to get around, Canada Day is going to be a lot of fun.  There will be so much to do.  We can gather all our friends, maybe play a game or two.


The girls set out to find their friends, so that they could travel all together.


Ohhh dear, I think that we are not all going to get in the car.  that’s OK, we’ll draw straws to see who gets to ride in the car, and who takes the bus.

China June 28.17

Hey guys I’m not able to go today, I still have to clean my room, but, I’ll be thinking of you,  Take pictures, let me see the fun.

ready to rumble, June 30 2017

Ohhhhhhh the car is ready to ride, but somehow, I can’t see how I’ll get too many of my friends inside.  Dad may have to use the truck. or not =^_^= (he just took time to put my car together)

Veronique,Blackie and my doll

Ohhhhh non, dit Veronique je suis seule, but my friends they are many…  it will never do, we will need to find another way to get downtown.  Ginger’s generous offer to drive, was well intended, but, it will be best for us to go by bus.  Travel is free today.  Some times our friends, mean well, but the situation calls for another  way to resolve the challenge at hand.  Be grateful, show appreciation and explain why you are deciding another course of action.  L’amour et la gentillesse (love and kindness) always work in keeping harmony amongst friends.

party time,getting ready


Told of the situation, they looked from one another, and began to giggle…all saw the impossibility of riding in the car..    Ahhhhhhhhhhh.. was all they could say between the chortling and giggling… ohhhhhhh c’est drole ahhhhhhhhhh

Let’s rumble they cheered, and headed for the bus stop, giggling all the way.

PL Precept # 4  Being annoyed limits your expression

Have fun in all you do, be flexible, there is always a way…

It is the start of a new month.  A new beginning.  In PL (Perfect LIberty) on the 1st of each month we have a ceremony, we pray for World Peace and rededicate ourselves to live as peaceful human beings in our own worlds.  That means anywhere we are “present”

PL Principle #21  I will live with the spirit of “Misasage” (devotion) working for the happiness of others.

PL precept #10  Love yourself and Others

When I feel one thing, and do another, then I am not being true to myself or to the person or situation I am interacting with.  It is not always easy to think before we speak, and, unfortunately, once the words leave our mouths, they can’t easily be taken back.

Let us begin this month, with a prayer in our hearts that extends out to all whose lives we touch.  Let us work towards acceptance and understanding when we are faced with something that is unfamiliar to us, or not in our comfort zone.  In the end, we may decide that we simply will have to agree to disagree, but at least, we listened to the option.  BEFORE making our decision, (choices)

PL Precept #20  Live maintaining equilibrium between mind and matter

we have to make peace

Chop Suey Friday


Today I would like to thank the Nature Ripe Farms in BC for the delicious fat plump blueberries I had for breakfast.  I started out rinsing them, and was only going to have a couple, but some how the hand at the end of my arm, kept popping them into my mouth. What a mouth-watering treat. The now almost empty container sports the Canadian flag..  Pl Principle # 8 says “I will not have a mind to be greedy”  hmmmmm I see I will have to practice more restraint around the little beauties.

In the summer, when fresh produce is in abundance, I find blueberries and other fresh products I like, hard to resist.  I will go most fall, winter and spring, and not give a blueberry a glance, but when these big fat round ones appear. I succumb to the bliss of a melting blueberry on the tongue as  I savour the moments of pleasure they give me.

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

Visit a link  naturipefarms.com to read about the goodness of the blueberry.



This is a saying that I think should be posted on billboards all over the place. Speaks for itself. Networking is not kindness. It is important in today’s world, for connecting, sharing ideas, and it is super effective, I am a believer of networking.  But, there is a difference between networking and kindness.

PL Precept # 11 Always be with God




Chop Suey Tuesday 12th.

Although I would like to say that life is rolling along, at its usual pace, it hasn’t.  Since my decision to follow through and go to Japan for Kyososai * it has been a merry ride of excitement and new discoveries.  Who knew, that one seemingly every day decision to return to Japan, could spur such initiative, and possibilities!  Not I.  But in PL, it isn’t unusual, and I should be used to it by now, but, I’m not, I ever cease to be amazed at how far-reaching goodwill, friendships, and kindness can reach.  What is coming home to me is that miles do not separate kindred spirits, true connections are universal and heartfelt.

PL Precepts # 11   Always be with God

The teachings of Perfect Liberty unite us where-ever we are.

PL Precept # 10 Love yourself and Others

In PL, we learn to appreciate and be thankful for all that happens in our lives.  There are no failures, there are opportunities to grow and learn.  If one path is not open to us, it is because, we have to redirect our energy and find another way to reach our objective.  In TAO, we say, …… the only constant in life is change …….

When a company,church, group or individual, refuses to look at and accept that changes are sometimes necessary to progress and unite, there is disharmony,  Life can become stagnant.  When we open our hearts and embrace and appreciate the world arround us, we recognize that the unique differences  or really sometimes our own perceptions.

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

  • Kyososai: is a special celebration . It is celebrated annually on August 1 with a ceremony at all churches in the world.  Kyososai (PL Founders’ Day) in Japan, is HUGE, people come in the 1000s for the celebrations there, it is very famous for “the Art of Fireworks”
  • Musubi – Oneness, togetherness with Others.


the funny was sent to me by a friend, I found the picture adorable, and my oddball sense of humour, laughed at the caption. =^_^=

When the Lakota leader Sitting Bull was asked by a white reporter why his people loved and respected him, Sitting Bull replied by asking if it was not true that among white people a man is respected because he has many horses, many houses? When the reporter replied that was indeed true, Sitting Bull then said that his people respected him because he kept nothing for himself.” –Joseph Bruchac – Photograph: Orlando Scott GoffGoodSitting Bull, Lakota leader

Good morning everyone, I found this in my research today.  It was posted 4 years ago on the Parabola (The Search for Meaning) site on tumblr.

How well said, and so simply .. it brings us back once more to the individuality of each of us, and how our cultures shape our thinking.

However that said, we are not back living in a time when the differences were not known, researched, studied, and documented.  This is 2016 an electronic age, we can sit in our homes and watch documented reports of what is going on around us.  There are thousands of published reports, books, magazines, videos and spoken story books.  There is no reason for us to not know about our neighbours.

“Before our white brothers arrived to make us civilized men, we didn’t have any kind of prison.
Because of this, we had no delinquents.
Without a prison, there can be no delinquents.
We had no locks nor keys and therefore among us there were no thieves.
When someone was so poor that he couldn’t afford a horse, a tent or a blanket, he would, in that case, receive it all as a gift.
We were too uncivilized to give great importance to private property.
We didn’t know any kind of money and consequently, the value of a human being was not determined by his wealth.
We had no written laws laid down, no lawyers, no politicians, therefore we were not able to cheat and swindle one another.
We were really in bad shape before the white men arrived and I don’t know how to explain how we were able to manage without these fundamental things that (so they tell us) are so necessary for a civilized society.”

Just some food for thought to go along with your coffee.  I find it extremely interesting and thought provoking that no matter who we are, or what our backgrounds are, we ALL strive for peace  and want it in our lives.

Everyone we meet, lives with us, under the same sky, reach out with an act of kindness today.  A smiles goes a long way…….

Namaste     –      Oyashikiri

keep it simple, keep it true


once upon  a time

sentiments were cute

even whimsical

once upon a time, we even took pride

in making our own cards

or personally making something

and hand delivering our  little token of friendship

to our friend(s) in person.6a310f4f0a325340d43baac0918962ff

there was a time

when the anticipation of simply having time alone

with someone dear that we cared for

was enough to set our hearts to smiling

 we whiled away the time thinking of

when we could sit side by side

and simply look into each other’s eyes.


hello today, this was yesterday

I wish it wasn’t that  way

we have let a lot of decay, work its way, into our  day-to-day


what was, simply is no more

many of us, want to work on our own,

somehow, people seem to have lost that connection

or part of community, that has us working as a group

a team, that works together for the common good

do any of you, know what the last picture is all about?


Playing outside was always fun

there was no need for  extra spending

people used what was on hand, and it worked just fine

OK yes, time moves on, this is a different time

but, people are people,

we still need to connect on a simpler plane

friendships, are formed when we get to know

our neighbours, and the people we meet along the way

not just to nod and say hello

but to say ..hey, how are you…. and genuinely care

about what they answer .

We need not wait till February to say, “you are very special”


with December just around the corner

I hope the coming season will be one without borders

where thoughts won’t be on gifts

but rather reaching out and staying in touch

with the people who have passed through

our lives… and in their own way

left a memory that doesn’t fade away7ddd16a197400477a609f5cedcbac32c

keep it simple

kindness, thoughtfulness

are gifts from the heart

and treasures that last a lifetime

Namaste        –       Oyashikiri
