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.

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.

silver

tumblr_lv6mkpFYhH1qhgyl1o1_500

There is something very mystical about silver, you can polish it to a  brilliant shine, yet as it lives with you, it takes on a patina of its own.  lately I’ve been cleaning a lot of jewelry for the church’s Funky Monkey Boutique. a tired old piece of jewelry can come alive with a cleaning and some TLC. (Tender Loving Care).  In fact what appeared to be old metal when cleaned was seen to be a lovely piece of silver that had tarnished so much over the years,  it had taken on a totally different look.

The moon itself is  a wonder of beauty that is always giving us a new face to see and rediscover,  Nature is forever in the state of change, and so are we. Each change brings a new dimension to our lives.  We can waste time and energy trying to redo or stop the change, but the reality is we can’t go back.  When we appreciate our lives for what it is at the very moment we are living it,   We are well on our way to finding a peaceful way of existence.

Silver is associated with the moon, it  symbolizes the night, the ‘Yin” side of life.  It is a beautiful precious metal,to maintain its glow it needs to be worn, and tended to.  So do our spirits, our minds, our bodies……… like the moon, we shine bright, we wax, we wane.  Attending church/temple/shrine, is one way of polishing and working on our “shine”.   Finding ways to stay in “tune” “touch” with our spiritual needs is important…. Today being Thanksgiving in PL, we gave thanks for the blessings of the month as well as for the past year.

74ee8145432fadf9e6c90ab712dc8b41May the silver moonbeams of the night

 light your way to where it is bright,

so that your entry into the new year will be filled with light.

A celebration that is sure to delight…

I wish with all my heart and might…

That your dreams come true for you this night.

Buenos dias – Good Morning!

row boat  nicefun.net

 

Tranquil is the day when I know that you are with me,,, like the stillness of the water on a calm day, I feel at peace, although there is activity under and around me, I am able to sit quietly and enjoy whatever goodness you bring my way.  Let me pray today for the blessings in my life, let me seek to further improve my life with you.  For you are the air that I breathe, and the force within, that keeps me going….

Thank you for another beautiful day.  May the love and light you grant me, unfold into all I meet and greet today, for they too  share in this journey we are on… forever and always, amen.

Namaste  – Oyashikiri
