pause pushed

DSC00030.JPG

I stepped out of the car the other day, without moving, I was lost

Sometimes it happens, without knowing it, I somehow pushed pause

so while the rest if the world drives by, children play, and daylight fades away

meanwhile, I am in pause mode, and here I will stay

Till reality and memories catch up, to my odyssey in space

no mistake, what is, is.

one can never go back.

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.

Thursday moment

 

IMG_1588 Ireland Belfast

A window that captures a moment in time

a moment long-lived, yet, now lost in time

Took a trip to Ireland, for this moment to happen

that was yesterday, this is today.

Today, when I saw the colours,  I thought of Brazil

two places I have never been

Life is “funny” that way

in an instant we can travel the globe

never leaving home,

why, because home is where your heart is.

mine is alive and well, still beating strong,

the window is till in Ireland,

 the moment has passed

but the thoughtful moment of inspiration,

a gift, long to be remembered

Q

past, present, they are all the same, to live in the now, we gather it all, so that today will be an even better day, for one and all.  You are truly loved, now and always.

thinking = happiness

Bom dia,  um maravilhosa dia para todos noa – A happy start to the week.

This is me thinking…. yeah really thinking dec.3 18

When I am working on project, and in full gear, this is what one of my work spaces looks like.  I used to ask myself how I could  really find anything in what my husband used to shudder at, (to him it was just a mess)  However I think my best when I see my stuff that I have out.  My eyes take everything in and the mind processes it.  My mind is my very own personal computer.  It has its own way of  computing.

I am happy to say, that over the years, I have grown to love my mind, and accept with great appreciation that it is mine.  As an artist, we learn that when we create, it is our own expression, no one elses, ours.  Certainly if we have to share our environment, we have to learn to define our own space.    All that said, when I walked into my office this morning, I sighed with relief that my thinking space was waiting and ready for me.

When I do clear things up, it feels barren the comfort of being “in progress”  is itching to get back in.

Remember we are all different.  We all have our own way of doing things.  My Mother’s one constant in life (to me anyway) was,” if people or someone can’t accept you for who you are, then they aren’t keepers”.

PL Precept # 7  Everything exists in relativity

PL Precept #17  Grasp what is most essential

Bed time is uncluttered.  Open space, no distractions. Balance in my day.

Bom dia, feliz sexta feira, happy Friday everyone.

What is with the well, well, well…  my reaction to a news story this morning, where one police officer shot another officer. Well, well, well, really, I can’t go beyond my reaction. It is  stunner, perhaps because in my past law enforcement was part of my life, I don’t know.  I have been away from this field for too many year, to know what the climate is like these days.  This is life isn’t it, we are calmly going about our daily business, when out of the blue, you hear something, or see something, that startles, or gives you cause for pause.

Life is happening all around us, some we hear about,, some we don’t, other times, it is right before us, and we never see it, or know that it is happening. But it is. A reminder that we don’t know what is around that corner, we know NOW. For myself, I know that I have to focus more on the now, be focused/aware, it is a fine art, and one that needs practicing every day.

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 the net time.

ps. my sister did the above artwork, I had not seen it before, it was one of her first attempts at working with a new medium. It is so colourful and joyful.  It is giving me a smile, hope you catch it and pass it on.  *wink.*  Smile everyone, it is Friday.

Zen moments

Their only thought is to BE.

Not feeling 100% I took to my bed early, I thought I would listen to my body, and simply lie down.

Life has a way of getting in the way.

PL calendar day 27

Put all of your effort into the NOW.

You can only do your absolute best right this moment; not in the past, not in the future, but NOW
