oh hello, almost missed you

 I felt your stillness

it drew me back to you

sometimes in life,

this is something we need to do too

yet for reasons, beyond comprehension

we keep racing ahead

then wonder how in the world

we find ourselves in over our heads

thank you.. for reminding me

to stop and simply BE

Q

 

Welcome to PL where your environment and the things that happen in front of you are all materials for your self expression and learning =^_^=

PL calendar day 10

When you are not having fun, could it be because you are being lazy?

Sometime you feel blue or can’t seem to find the joy in doing anything.  

At times like this, just get up and move your body or work your mind to the fullest extent.


A rainbow caught yesterday afternoon… someone was at the right place at the right time.  Thank you Ms California for sharing. =^_^=

Happy Chinese New Year!

PL Calendar day 5   Start by thinking “this is interesting!”

Even when you are dealing with a difficult situation, it is important to find something interesting about it.  From there you will be blessed with wisdom and something new will come out of it.


“True Religion is real living, living with all one’s soul, with all one’s goodness an righteousness”  Albert Einstein


It is very quiet all around me when there is a deep blanket of snow around every inch of ground that surrounds my home.  The emergency vehicles are quiet this morning, the main roads and streets must be decent. Commuters who have deadlines must be either there or almost at their destinations..  The quiet of the moment is refreshing.  Yesterday I had a sick day, my body dictated that the end of the lunar year should be one of contemplation and rest.  I listened.

Today is a new beginning.  In PL, Precept #1   Life is Art,  I really and truly believe this, each day is a new canvas, where the possibilities are endless.  For you my precious and delightful friends, readers and “family”  may the Universe enrich your lives with the delight of new adventure, successful results and endless opportunities for your dreams/ wishes.  And, the blessing of wisdom in the knowledge that love is with you, now and always.

Good morning everyone, bom dia a todos..

Trying something new, with a new medium, I just wasn’t getting it.  At least not with the results I wanted.  Mostly I would get it out late in the evening ,just before going to bed, and have another go at it.

Last night, with time to spare, I organized the different medium I wanted, and used a different method of application.  Voila the look I wanted, 1,2,3, the card was done.

PL Calendar day 7   – Don’t strain, don’t rush, and don’t be greedy

When you are doing something you may rush things to get good results, quickly . Instead relax and enjoy the process.

Blessings of the day dearest friends.

Greetings on Sunday

 

fright drucillaMay the day shine brightly for you.  Sunday and we are not having a service this morning, because of the service last evening. What does one do on a Sunday morning, when there is no service.  I to Drucilla’s displeasure, decided to play with my paint and other supplies to start on a  makeover for her.  I have told her that this is therapeutic for both of us, but her silence tells me, …. it is all in my head.

Tomorrow begins another month.  October.  The leaves have started to change, when driving the back roads yesterday, I saw more sights of reds peaking through the evergreens.  Actually not only the various shades of red, but the yellow orange hue were also taking over the fresh greens of the summer.  The camera buffs who have been slumbering through the sweltering summer, will be polishing off their lenses to take full advantage of the fall display that will soon be in full bloom.  I confess, I love, LOVE the autumn season, here in Canada where we get four different seasons, the fall months tantalize and delight me.

With that in mind I will be on the watch this morning, for “something” to catch my “eye” while I am out driving along the river, into rural Ontario. Some time, when you are inclined to do so, you must tell me how you mange to drive and “catch” that perfect moment, when there is other traffic on the road… =^_^=

PL Calendar day 30

Use your results to make the next time even better

Whether things turn out perfectly or not, the important thing is to take what you’ve learned and apply it to the next time.

If I could make this lesson, flash with neon lights, I would do so,  I think the mice are back, or trying to come back in  As you know, it took a long time to rid this house of the little “devils”…. So! mon ami, it looks like we will again, take on the capturing of mice.

I have spent my evenings with Poirot (Agatha Christie} audio books, so delightful!

Bom dia – good morning

Your surroundings are a Reflection of YOU  PL Calendar day 9

Para pessoas preocupadas surgem fatos preocupantes  Para otimistas, fatos alegres e para os gentis, fatos agradaveis.

A person who constantly worries will always find things to worry about.  An optimistic person will attract happiness.  A kind person will always be blessed with kindness in return.

Day 7

Don’t Strain, Don’t Rush, and Don’t be Greedy

When you are doing something, my may rush things to get good results quickly.  Instead relax and enjoy the process (PL, Perfect Liberty)

origami 3.4.18Remember this from yesterday.  I loved the simplicity of it, I wanted to do it.  To make it easier on myself, I asked the minister’s wife if she could please show me how to do it. Being a visual person, I do better when I see something done  (when it is totally foreign to me and origami is)  Her patience at folding the paper, and refolding to ensure that I was seeing where I had to turn the paper, how to fold a crease etc. was calming.

I didn’t know that I was so  hesitant to do it wrong, that I wouldn’t even try until I saw her do it.  The she patiently led me through the steps, one by one.

Me, “miss get it done” was learning something new,  I doubt it is something I will ever excel in, but I did it.  I have an artistic bent as you all know.  The mediums I do best in, are media that work WITH me, for example, my “style” of work, and my need to watch the process develop (I am getting better) finds me working with acrylic and water paints. Oils and I have not clicked over the years.  Yet I do work with mediums that require over night drying…I’ve never taken to oils.

This lesson has a lot to “say” to me. I know that I will do my best to apply myself to practicing the wisdom in this lesson.

I will do my best.. that is all any of us can do.

Have a good day everyone.. LOVE and Blessings.
