Happy Tuesday everyone

China, shang-li SichuanLately I have been watching a lot of Chinese Documentaries, learning about China, not the China I grew up with in my imagination. ( I was born in Canada) but historical and social memories, offered up by CGTN.com.  To say it has been a learning experience would be an understatement.

Today a dear friend in Australia sent me this link… Hans Zimmer “light” 

Hans Zimmer  “Light”  (The Thin Red Line)

Composed by Hans Zimmer, additional music by Klaus Badelt & John Powell, conducted and compiled by Gavin Greenaway and orchestrated by Bruce Fowler & Yvonne S. Moriarty.

The sights and sounds of  the video, were so calming, I wish you for you a serene day, that is filled with a light of promise, that will filter into all your tomorrows.

lost? in place

merrickville-6-10-18.jpg

No, not lost where you don’t know where you are, just “lost” when you stand in one place and feel that at that moment, you are in many places.  The shadows, the lush vegetation, the multiple shades of green.  AND of course the almost hidden old wooden building in the background.

My adventure companion and I had arrived in Merrickville, her for ice cream, and me, for no real reason but to share time with a friend and enjoy the outing.  Then I saw this place and was instantly transported to many places at once. I saw New Hampshire, the Laurentians, southern NY state, it was an amazing feeling, it  wrapped itself in a hug and vanished,

Such moments are not uncommon, but they are not “ordinary” we have to be tuned in to “receive the frequency”.  Be present in your every day life.  Live each moment!                 Live with appreciation .. give thanks!

PL day 11 (calendar)

BE THANKFUL FOR WHO YOU ARE TODAY

You are standing here thanks to your ancestors, your parents and those who have supported you through your life.  Show your appreciation by giving back to the world around you.

I waited and waited , but didn’t want to miss the moment, so snapped.  The human I guess gives it a flavour.  The place was busy,  being a mid Friday afternoon, I was lucky. The sun was so bright, it out shone the lights on the decorations.

Happy Saturday everyone!   Remember, feelings of appreciation, only become real, when we express them. ………thank you   =^_^=   yes, YOU, to each and every one on you who share my world.

Cancer can

montfort 8.6.17

Cancer can turn your life around

it can throw what you have known as reality

into a different dimension.

” What kind of cancer “, someone will ask..

personally, even though we have been told, it doesn’t matter

What matters is it has to e dealt  with..

Here is a little tidbit from today’s adventure,

Yesterday I had to do a small laundry, and decided to do it by hand,

hang it outside to dry, we’ve had a couple of beautiful days .. perfect

for laundry.  I anticipated that fresh smell one gets from clothes hung out to dry,

montfort Aug. 6.17

I got half my wish, one article, the one that I was waiting for, was dry, but a bird had flown over and left its signature on it.  All that came to mind when I saw it, was that “Nature” had a sense of humour, but I wasn’t laughing.

What else to do .. but… come in and wash it all over again.  The other item which I had washed .. just because, was linen fresh, and daisy clean.

I think dealing with cancer will be pretty much the same… It happens, it’s ours, now we have to simply deal with it.  It will be a new adventure for both of us.  My husband has had a wonderful attitude, positive and bright.  Together we will see it through.

Again, thank you all for being so wonderfully supportive.  We ARE, all ONE.

PL Precept # 12  Everything has a way according to its Name.

PL Precept #15  All is a Mirror

Cancer can bring people closer together, in PL we say Kamuwaza (God’s Act) … is part of life.

What can bring out the best in people, cancer can.

love, light, laughter, appreciation, faith, and gratitude make them part of your day, everyday, no matter what….

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

Boats – waiting

 

All in a row

one by one

they sit and wait

for someone to come open the gate

DSC00250

it is a beautiful day

surely today will be the day

DSC00257

shadows play along the walls

racks wait patiently

to feel the weight of  their cargo

DSC00261

the sun shines down with promise

 anticipation is carried on the breeze

  Mother Nature  smiles & whispers

“all in good time”

we still are nowhere near the twenty first of May

DSC00239

soon, soon enough,

the grounds will be alive with activity

the sailing season

will begin

DSC00254

for now the few

who have come to enjoy

are blessed with a tranquil day

and open spaces of exquisite joy

colour high

colour 1

I landed on a page that was full of colours.  Lots of colours … my thoughts were arrested, what, where, when .. why was I so fascinated by the colours.  As I looked I found myself drawn in, captured in the moment.  The moment held….. it lasted….

colour 2

yes, of course, the fusion of colour, the energy of the abstract, nothing conformed to what we see in reality, this was an outer body visual high.  could it be…………?? ———————- a  natural high

colour 4

ah HA!… I caught you smiling………  do you remember too……………  have you found your ‘Zen” ….. the light is dazzling, it IS hard to look away… come on now.. have you been caught up in the spell…   are you remembering another time… admit it….  you are smiling….. bright colours make us cheerful… happy….

colour 5

We tend to live in darks, grays and monotone, there was a time when we saw colour, lots of colour, the mood was light and full of love.

colour 7

my choice….  is to love ……… love in all its splendour ………………yes there can be cloudy days, where the colour takes on a pastel hue ……………… but a good true love……. is colourful rainbow is here to stay ………………..  It is me and you!  …. so let us all share a smile today…………………. pass the love around.

colour 6

Love is a powerful antidote to any challenges that come our way.  When our hearts are filled with love, there is nothing we can’t do.   Really ………. truly ………………. pure love ……………………. transcends all.
