Words on Wednesday,

amon-in-ottawa

a child’s expression

so much innocence

the emotion just happens

as we mature

somewhere, some how

we find ways

to hide or not show

how we truly feel

and in time

we ourselves forget

that the facade

is really just that

an outer face

and not what

we are feeling

at all

Chop Suey Thursday

photo-4-2Finally the colour is appearing along the fence and in our backyard.  On my way to Orleans this afternoon, I was again delighted by the colour the lined the highway.  This time I was taking another way in,  I was driving by farmland, fruit stands, and even a golf course.  So I enjoyed the contrast of colour against the manicured shades of green on the course itself.

img_0065Norm (Thursday Doors) I did wonder, if this could be considered a  “kind of” door.  After all it does symbolize the ending of life here on earth, and the journey to another “dimension”.   After a brief dialogue with myself .. I passed on the idea… but I did like the picture.

I like discovering old resting places… some are a tad sad due to neglect… but if you see beyond the disrepair .. you discover wonderful works of art, and interesting sentiments  Mother Nature has a way of adding her own decorative etchings and colouring on the tombstones.

photo-4-3You all know how much I love the play of light and shadows, in the fall, the darkness deepens, and I can lose myself in the depth of imagination and vegetation that has started to decay.  Life is beautiful in all stages.

ce00249d8878b494394bf12392d36775I have no idea, where this is, or how this picture found its way into the folder I was viewing..  but.. hey it is a door and by jove, it is Thursday

Tomorrow, I am having my second eye done.. (how many does she have you ask.. even I wonder at times).. so I will “see” you when I “see” you.

Have good days, peaceful nights, and I won’t say be good, I’ll say… live each moment, put your whole heart into it, and you will never have regrets.

PL Principle #21  – I will live paying careful attention, putting Makoto (sincerity) into all I say and do

lazy mind

8.20_011

A lazy mind can sit and ponder, wonder and consider her options for hours on end.  there is nothing wrong in daydreaming, or taking time out to unwind, de-stress, or as some of us say, just chill.  However, often it is after spending hours drifting aimlessly through imaginary and often lingering moments of “fantasy”, we emerge and finding that all the “stuff” we had waiting for attention in the “immediate” world, is still there, waiting …..

8.20_013

Sure, we can make a list, and we can plot out just how we will get to this project and that one, what materials we will need, even “see” it in our heads.  But all of this is not getting “it” done.

8.20_009

Maybe a walk will sweep out the cobwebs and give inspiration.  Wow, it is so nice out  here, such a pleasure to be out in the fresh air.  hmmm yes, hear those birds, and look… look at how white and fluffy the clouds are today.

8.20_023

Oh my goodness, look at the time, where did it go, it must be dinner time, and I’ve not even started to get things ready.  where did the time go.  Must have closed my eyes after the walk, it was only going to be for a few minutes.

8.20_020

Hello Mr. Crow, will you help me while I start preparing for supper.  I had a good day, thank you for asking, how was yours? hmmmm oh I see, you were busy with your pals clearing up left over seeds at the neighbouring farms.

8.20_024

Well compared to your day, I guess I didn’t get much done..  but then again, I was “busy” all day.

Can any of you relate….. to my “busy” day, shared with my “lazy mind” ??

PL Precept #2   To live is to express one’s self

times get tough – be creative

P1000267

There are times, when no matter which direction we turn,life throws us a curve.  We can see these times as tough times, or as opportunities to challenge our creativity.  Countless books, and lectures have been given on “how to deal with adversity”.

PL Precept #1 – Life is Art

It really truly is.  Each time we’ve driven by this little display in Potsdam, NY, I wonder out loud, what, why, and where, the whole idea came from.  This time, we stopped so I could take some pictures.  The display has been there for some time, flowers are weather faded, and weeds well established.  There is also a similar display in another part of the town.  It is a University/College town, so I’m guessing, that it was some kind of project.  Whatever, it is most fun and interesting.

P1000269

Toilets, flush away waste, bath tubs, wash away daily grim.  At one time, the display would have been fresh and innovative.  Today it is obviously still a source of interest or it wouldn’t be there, taking up such prime real estate.  Some day, perhaps I’ll hear what prompted such a display of tongue in cheek creativity.  Does anyone out there know?

No matter how tough times get, we all have the potential and possibility to achieve something positive.  The whole project here, was about waste being recycled, and what “fun” it is.
