Why not…

funny

Happy Saturday everyone… A dog whose name I have long forgotten looked out at me over the silly sunglasses someone put on him…Maybe his name was Teddy.   Dogs are so patient with us.  They have no idea why we dress, pamper and  spoil them, but they graciously allow us our fun.

I know my girl, she was not amused. But… she was a good sport =^_^= long enough for me to get a picture.

Believe it or not.. when I did these characters.. I thought they were so cute.  Now I can’t even tell you where they are.  OR why I was making them.  That was then, this is NOW.

All this to say.  Life is what it is.  Every day brings new ideas, and opportunities to be creative.  Sometimes they involve others, sometimes you are on your own.

Wordless Wednesday, March 1

Wordless Wednesday, almost

 

Look beyond your immediate view

a whole new and different world

awaits you

across Billings

When we make the time to

look beyond the trees

we never know just what we will see

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Thinking of you

remembering how beautiful life is

because you are in it.

Life is Art, Vida es Arte

determination

This is a picture of the artist Frida Kahlo, who at the age of 18 had her life completely changed, due to an accident. She had been intending to attend University and become a doctor.  The accident changed all that, she was hospitalized for some time, over her short life, she possibly underwent some 30 surgeries.  Her life and her art can easily be found by sourcing google.

In this picture with the use of a mirror she is painting on her body cast.  She had a life full of drama and adventures her name was linked with many public figures.    Always she painted for herself, she is quoted as saying “I paint self portraits because  I am so often alone… because I am the subject I know best”

Another of her statements ” I am not sick, I am broken, but I am happy to be alive, as long as I can paint”

When I read about her, and saw her work, I could see the pain in her work, she was known to work slowly, patiently and she expressed her pain, emotional and physical, through her works.  Born in Mexico, it was where she wanted to be, and that is where she died.  She created some 200 paintings,drawings and sketches all related to her personal experiences in life.  When reading about her life, we see adjectives/words, like turbulent, painful, colourful. I saw determination and need to express….

 

L'Eternelle Idole, by Rodin

This is by another artist that has made history with his work.  Rodin.  This is the marvelous piece called “L’Eternelle Idole”  I implore you if you want to read more about this piece to visit, The Alchemist’s Pillow  The words written to describe this sculpture brought it to life even more, then by just looking at it and taking in it’s every nuance.

Everyone is an artist, only our way of expressing what we see, feel and think, is different.  Unique to each one of us.

In PL we say, everyday is a new beginning. PL Precept #18  Each Moment is a Turning Point.

Bronze, Musee Rodin Paris –

have a happy meaningful day, express yourself in a positive way. Love is everywhere especially in and around YOU!

ed117d9be8ff5c8c365b11e26eb59ef3Would I take this journey

Yes I would …

No doubt …

No regrets …

Because I know

that God is always with me …

If I arrived at this path

I would know that it is a journey

meant for me to take …

lessons, challenges, opportunities

they are gifts, that make us who we are.

Each day is like a new canvas

I can’t wait to see what I will discover

as my adventure begins

This morning’s lesson is about, not being swayed by the past.  It is what we do now, that counts.  When we begin the day with a fresh outlook,  We will be blessed with an adventure from begging to end.

Why not,  some of these funnies have been going around for years, when I got a package of them this morning, I thought why not share.  The talented cartoonists and illustrators  captured in one “picture” what might take pages to say otherwise..

When I was younger (much  younger and starting to work full-time) I remember having similar thoughts, about being old enough to make my own decisions, and someone, usually my Mother, trying to reason with me on various matters.  It is only when I got much older did I realize how right she had been.  I didn’t think so at the time though.  When we are young we think that the experiences we have and the challenges we face are soooooooo unique..  in reality, we all fall in love, we are all at some time left feeling lost and lonely, and we all have a tendency to forget that each and every other person in our lives has known the same pangs of emotions we have.

This next one… the moment I saw it, several people came to mind that I love dearly, but immediately their faces sprang up when I “reacted” to this illustration .. No two people are alike, and it is not always about a person’s mannerisms, looks or method of conversation that keep us friends, it is their  loyalty, sincere friendship,  & the willingness to accept us as we are.

A relationship worth having is one that experiences the highs and lows of life in a way that respects the differences and accepts the adventure of life in a way that is compatible with yours.

No Kidding!

Make this a happy day..
