Sumac is a beautiful plant, I tried to grow it once, it is hardy in our area, however it is also very aggressive. I thought it would be nice in an area of the property, but soon had to start digging it out. It grew and grew and grew.. all over… Everywhere!
In other areas of the world Sumac is cultivated and used as a herb, spice, tea, it is considered to have many health benefits as well. From my past experience with it.. I now enjoy it when I go on walks, or come across it in my travels while hiking.. The desire to have it in my personal space, has long gone.
My experience with the Sumac is much like some of my other “encounters/experiences” while progressing along on this road of “life” Some experiences I explored and moved on.. and others I have retained in my “memory bank” and bring out from time to time to reflect on how the experience enriched my life.
Begin your day with appreciation. Welcome each new day with renewed appreciation, and step forward with a feeling of World Peace in your heart.

Always be cheerful, happy and good humored. When you make an effort to be cheerful and happy, you will naturally begin to feel that way.
I started out for one place, was in the wrong lane, ended up in a totally different direction, and smack dab to the entrance (parking lot) for the Larose Forest.
Was I dressed for a hike through the forest trails, no. Being the trouper I am, I decided to hike down one of the trails to get some pictures. Hot, was it hot… yes, but walking along under the canopy of the trees, there was a breeze.
My day was planned out for me by a higher being. I would not have started out to visit the Larose Forest on a day when temperatures were going to give us a scorching heat, with a high humidity factor thrown in. But I end the day with gratitude in my heart. I had a lovely day, it was a productive day, the myriads of greens, and earthy tones, was a palette that not only pleased the eye, but soothed a weary “soul”
Live in the moment. Whether you are walking, having a conversation, or having a good time, it is important to be fully engaged. Remember to live in the “now”

I will live with a mind of appreciation toward others and things.
Perfect Liberty Principle #3
Good night everyone. May your night and dreams be filled with a heartfelt joy that has you drifting into a peaceful sleep with a smile on your face, and gratitude in your heart.
It is only natural that you are different from others. Each of us has our own way of thinking and our own individual lifestyle. that’s what makes life interesting.

Strive today to put on a positive outlook to the day. Start the day with a smile.
You have seen Velcro before, but since we were talking about being “laid back” BEING AWARE, yet chilling while you observe and live in the world around you. My boy whippet, served up a good example. =^_^=
Relaxing, is part of living. Don’t make it all work and no play. -Q
It is much cooler in the wee world, where one can travel, play, explore and enjoy any temperature that pleases. along the mushroom trail is where you can find Q today, She is having a ME day.
Some days the greatest playground is the one that you can discover while never leaving home.
Be a person who can recognize the sincerity of others. When you put your whole heart into things you will be able to notice the sincere acts of others in the subtle things they do, and appreciate them that much more.
I needed a change. I’d been listening to “Rocking Country” “Blues” this is always good background music for me when I’m “working”..For some reason, I decided to look up what events were on at that moment. There was a live concert, of native flute, and drum, totally different.
From right to left. I looked up events. Found that the show had just started, fixed my hair and taxied over. It was so totally different from the foot stomping music I’d been listening to, I wasn’t sure I’d stay. The performer, was explaining that he had made several of the different flutes he would be playing, It was not electric, it was acoustic, it was pure and simple. Within a very short time, (picture on the left) I was zoning out, really chilling.
Sometimes it is easier to do what we are used to. BUT, when we step outside the box, our perceptions, our senses reawaken, I drifted, let the music come and go, let the moment happen, and the tired weary part of my physical self, sighed and ahhhhh I really really relaxed. when I got to bed, I SLEPT.
When you think “I’ve got it” think again.It is so easy to misinterpret the situation and jump to conclusion. Always have a humble attitude, and double check to make sure.
