rock/wire sculpture -Merrickville, On.Canada

There will always be a way. if you persist and be creative without giving up, you will find solutions that you had not considered before.

Prefect Liberty 2020.28

I have gone many times to Merrickville, but it was only on my last visit there that I came across this giraffe. I stood for some time looking at it, before I walked down the street to get a better look. Years ago I had attempted to do some sculptures with chicken wire, I know the effort and time I had to put in to accomplish what results I did get.

This tall imposing giraffe was a marvel to me. There were not that many people about that day, so I was able to stand and enjoy him/her for some time. The posture, the face, the use of the stones all came together so beautifully. I’m sorry now that I did not attempt to find the owner and perhaps the creator…. (note to self.. a revisit soon or when weather permits and the season is right.)

Begin each day with a renewed sense of appreciation. Always remember that you are here today thanks to God, and thanks to the many people around you. Let’s make each day meaningful by starting out with a feeling of gratitude.

lost? in place

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!
