Spaces, there is always a place, just right for meditation

find a space, where you can sit, reflect and contemplate,

BE your own best friend, LOVE will never end.

The Universe is everywhere,

there is no where you can BE without being part of the Universe

.. find a place, …. meditate

start today, make time for YOU every day.

Piglet and I were out wandering, I felt I needed to check in on my friend from a few weeks ago.

This time he had a few friends with him.  He looked no better tended to, even though the zoo was open for business, and there were cars in the parking lot.  But never mind his appearance, he made me smile, and coming over, he began to mooo? bray? Funny how animal can be so friendly in their own way.  There was what looked like a reindeer type of maybe moose in with them.  He looked like he had faded out, dried and withered Xmas garland hanging from his beautiful antlers.  However he wasn’t ready to come say hello … we had to admire from afar.

Thankfully they can’t read the sign on that storage container that is on ground in their enclosure.

PL calendar day 29   You gain strength through your hardships

Whatever you learn easily or master effortlessly tends to be forgotten.  The lessons you gain through repeated mistakes are what gives you genuine strength.

It was hot, the heat was a steady blanket of relentless “ugh” for me.  Not for everyone, but me, myself and I, tend to wilt in the hot sun of summer.  I feel an affection/love for these creatures, even the short visit with them will be a happy memory.

Wishing you all a great start to a brand new week.

The forbidden finger making its way to share a personal moment.  Yesterday I gave him some fresh taller green leaves from my side of the fence… but did not touch, only with my voice, did I whisper my love.  Every living being needs to know love!

hello…

The greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions and not upon our circumstances – Martha Washington.

PL calendar day 26      If you face a situation head on, a path will open up

No matter how hard the situation is, face it head on.  If you approach it seriously you will be able to find a way to break through.

Happy Friday everyone, smile at passers by they will wonder if you are alright, but it sure will feel good. Some will even smile back.  Smile, you are  a winner!!! just for being YOU.

what happens when

pl parking lot

you are being careless or overconfident ..

Even though you may have put your best effort into doing something you still may have made mistakes.  that is why it is important to always work with a prayerful mind.

Good morning dear friends,

Our surroundings play such an important part in our lives, yet, too often we put off what needs attention, or doing, till ????

I admit to having done just that thee past months, and now.. guess what.. aaaghghgh I have to clean up.  It would have been so much simpler had I done it as the days went along, but no…. aghhhhhh hands to the heavens…. “will I ever get this right”

Have a grand day my lovelies, rain or shine, we are ONE.  You and me… travelers on this road of life.  You make it much more interesting. You do!

Life is to be lived, life is to be shared.  Never fear saying, you care. Your smile is worth barrels of sunshine that will last for miles.

Good morning everyone –

Needing time to cool down (central air, not functioning ) I got into my car (where the air conditioning is working) deciding to run an errand that was some miles away.  I would get to travel the road along the river, towards Montreal, and enjoy the countryside, as it is reaching out and up to meet the wonderful seasons, of late spring, early summer.

I saw a faded sign, Papanack Zoo, something niggled in my mind, I come this way, time and time again, why had I not seen this sign before.  I turned off and headed down the road in the direction the arrow pointed.  I was overwhelmed by a very sad feeling as I looked over and saw an exotic cat (big one) lying on a mound of earth and weeds.  So out of place. The area looked so unkept, it was a field, like one would see in the back forty of an acreage where a broken down, old piece of farm equipment would have been left to rust.

This was a majestic animal, one that  I would see pictured on an advert for a safari somewhere in a totally different country, certainly not here in Ontario, just outside of Ottawa.  My curiosity peaked I went in search of information.  The place was closed, not inviting at all.

I was now on a dirt track, I had parked near a building, to look at what looked like donkeys, standing in open pens, a man came out of a building and I asked him if he could give me information, but he distanced himself from the place, said he knew nothing,   I should google it. (I did when I finally got home)

Meanwhile, not getting any information from this man, I turned the car, to continue along the dirt road that ran along a high fence.  I saw other animals, in enclosed areas, with very poor looking structures that would allow for “some” cover should there be high heat, or heavy rain, but not all of them had any form of shelter to speak of.

I felt the eyes on me before I saw him, he watched as my car slowly drove by.  when I came to a gate that barred my way from going further, I carefully turned the car around, the road was unkept and really meant for a truck or as I later saw, a golf cart type of vehicle.

Here I am, visiting with my new friend.  He had a quiet dignity.  That could be my finger, because I did scratch his head, and gently lift his hair to see his eyes.  He didn’t move except to turn his head, to acknowledge me, and share the moment.  His hair was matted in places, and like the other pens, there was no where for him to go.  There were two other animals with him.  My focus and love was on him.

I wanted him to feel love, experience kindness, he was not just a curiosity, he was beautiful, he mattered. Our bonding was interrupted by a woman’s shouts to not put my hand in it was dangerous.  Too late I thought, I have already touched him with love in my heart, and spoken to him with tenderness.  Even prayed with him, for I felt his energy, his patience and his gracious acceptance of my attempt at friendship.

Honestly, when I read the negative and awful reports on the internet about the cruelty that was reported a couple of years back, I felt sick, and still today, I hurt for my friend and his other companions.  Please offer a prayer for these animals.

I have read reviews,  one reviewer who went said it was nice to see animals in a natural setting unlike commercial zoos.  There were  positives and negatives.  I guess one needs to go when it is open and actually speak to staff.

For me, I give thanks for the time I got to spent with my silent friend.  His strength, his ability to communicate by just BEING helped me, in my moment of need.

PL calendar day 21 – Let’s be thankful for everything we have right now.  Now is an accumulation of every moment leading up to it, and everything that continues to progress and develop to become NOW.  Be thankful for everything.

I looked down – and there you were, just waiting  for me to realize that you were

as always, right there by my side.
