Good morning, a week or so ago, went on a door gathering expedition. This last one was the door to a small 3 season canteen. On this brisk day in December it seemed to be saying..”Help, I’m being held up, and shut down, it’s lonely”….. Yes when operating it is busy little place on the main street of a small town, with an active community.
Houses, buildings, streets, what makes them interesting is the PEOPLE, a house is just that, until someone comes along and makes it a home.
Each person has their own special qualities. Each of us is born with a unique worldview. Be respectful of others and learn to get along with people of all types.
The early morning light, was not going to get any brighter, yet I found the sight of the single tree still standing with its crisp mantle of dusty orange leaves, appealing.
I found today to be beautiful, it was moody, it was stirring, most of all it was full of expressions waiting to be discovered.
Appreciate the Makoto (sincerity) of the people who came before you. Everything we have today was built upon the hard work of our ancestors and the people who came before us. Always remember to be thankful and humble and continue to build on their past successes.

The 11th. Ancestors day ceremony, is one of my favourites, today’s service was powerful
Voices in unison we prayed, heads bent in reverence and respect for our loved ones, and those who came forward and went into battle to keep us all free from those who would do us harm.
Where-ever you are in the world, please continue to pray for world peace.
PL Precept #7 Everything exists in relativity
Please note that tomorrow, I am taking my “unreliable” “malfunctioning” PC back to the store for a check up. I will be back asap.
I was reading a friends blog recently, he lives in Japan, and writes about the use of and the caring of good carving tools https://covingtonandsons.com/2019/10/04/sharpening-part-10-the-ura-%e6%b5%a6/ While reading his blog I was hit with the similarity of looking after one’s tools, and the maintaining of friendships. When we don’t look after our tools, they stop performing for us the way they were intended to perform. Especially a carving tool. A good crafts person, knows that it is essential he/she maintain his/her tools in good working order if the quality of work is to be preserved.
When a friendship is taken for granted, or mistreated, will it withstand the neglect or at times, miscommunication. In PL we learn that life is about us, and that we re responsible for our feelings. So I muse on if I feel slighted, or taken for granted, then it is up to me, to what…. dismiss the situation, put it aside and move on.
Not let it happen again, simply do not put your self in the position again. hmmmm the little voice says…. you could miss out on something…. you enjoy that friend. Did they intentionally set out to hurt you. The answer is no. It is simply their actions, were not appreciated by my sensitivities.
Darn being a philosopher is hard. I likely will opt for a good cry. Have a good nights sleep, and tomorrow, begin another day.
Now please everyone, don’t be sad or feel that I am blue.. I am living the moment, and will then move on. Life is too beautiful and inspiring, tomorrow I will be wide eyed and living my adventure.
gentle falling rain, will eventually, etch its presence in rock.
a shadow will change with the movements of the sun
a cloud is temporary
love is forever and unconditional
and, I am what I am, a temporary traveler in this space and time
Driving along one day, I spied a happy face. It meant a bit of a climb, but I wanted a close up. Happy under the sun, we shared several of moments in contemplation, the stones, the surroundings and I. Happiness is being alive, to take in and bask in the wonder of the world around us. Where ever you may be. Day or night, you are never alone.
Make every moment count!
