Good morning – bom dia!!!!!

Day 30 of PL Calendar

Your Surrounding are a mirror of your thoughts

When you think “This is going to be hard” then your situation will become difficult.  Instead think  “Let’s do this” and face your situation with determination.  Then you will be surprised to see how smoothly things go.

Feb 28

IMG_0771Happy Birthday to someone special.  Born on the 28th she just missed being a leap year baby.  How lucky is that.

Birthdays are a celebration of life. No matter how many we have, each one marks a year of experiences and adventures.  Some birthdays are stepping-stones, and others well, they require hiking boots walking sticks and determination.

I welcome every day as an opportunity for kindness.

Hello, bonjour, bom dia, and jumping jack greetings to each and every one of you.  Another new year is just around the corner,  In China the airports, train stations, all methods of travel really, are homeward bound.  It is exciting, and alive time.  Seeing friends and family sharing huge family meals, and gatherings.

Since my Mother’s passing and for several years before she actually passed, the Chinese New Year  came and went with a happy conversation and a small sparkle.  She was unable to get to the various celebrations held around the city or at the Chinese Embassy. Since I can remember, Chinese New Year has been the BIG turning point for me.  I remember as a child the banquet and feasts, the dragon dances, fire crackers and the many many ritual tasks that were preformed to make sure we started the new year off with gratitude for the past year and much appreciation for the wonderful time ahead.  Good fortune, Prosperity wishes were everywhere.  Red envelopes, special candies,  Happy New Year greetings always included the wish that your life be blessed with good health.

With my husband’s passing last year I wanted more than ever for this transition into another year to be auspicious and filled with the many joys and encouragements we would share to be 100 fold.  I worked on a year of the pig mixed media piece so that I would be actively piecing together elements that would be like a visual firecracker for me.  The lunar new year depending on where you live, is o the 5th. of February.

Ps… my little wheel around the pig.  spins.

Reminder.. due to the storm and the broken water pipe, there will be no service today, but Thanksgiving service is still scheduled for tomorrow evening at 7 pm.

void or

gimme bling

A black void.  As an artist, I had a moment the other day, where I wanted to express that very moment,  not think about anything but saying, Blah. Snap, and so what. Followed by many exclamation marks.

My eyes searched my workroom… till they fell on a big bottle of black glue.  Ah Ha! I took an old canvas and began to just vent with the glue on the canvas.  It was black and shiny that I dug out a bottle of cut glass pieces I had for dear knows what reason… and some gold cording.  Then gave way to.. come what may.

Voila… t’is a black void.   my sometime co-pilot, when she saw it, said it looked like “inside a sparkling cave filled with shiny somethings. enchanting”  =^_^= I have been blessed with wonderful kind friends.

In the sunlight or under a light, it is true it has bling.  Bling  that winks and shines in a very cheerful way.  This is an example of, starting out with a blank – need to just vent/express…. letting go, and then seeing the results.

PL Calendar day 9 (2019)   It’s interesting because it’s different

Even if someone totally disagrees with you or does things differently, you may learn something from them.  Avoid getting trapped in the mindset, “This is the way it has to be” and free your mind to consider other possibilities.

PL Calendar day 6 (2019)

Past, present or future, always remember to be sincere and honest

At any time, the place where you are standing at that moment is the stage upon which you must express yourself in relation to your position or status.


In any form of expression, there are often many components that come together to get a desired effect, or to form the base for which you are about to elaborate on.  Even then, the presentation can take so many forms depending on the direction you are going at that point in time.

That is what makes life so darn interesting.  That is what makes getting up each morning so fun, yes fun.  Means everyday brings new experiences, new endings, beginnings, with each step we take, we mature, we grow. Our ability to navigate the world around us gets that much experiences.

Hey yesterday, I actually went through a car wash on my own,  I know. Most of you have done it a zillion times.  It was new for me.  I was so chuffed. =^_^=

Have a good day everyone, bom dia a todos.

Happy 25th (terca-feira)to all

Andre 12.25aLife is lived in segments.  Remember when the phone was thought to be the greatest of inventions.  A voice from across the miles, would bring cheer, maybe only once a year. At Xmas, everyone would gather around the phone, and wait eagerly to speak to the relative, or friend who lived far away.  It brought everyone close.

What time was spent with someone else was precious, not taken for granted, it was appreciated and remembered well into the years to come.

 

dec 25.18b

Spend today enjoying the sunshine, create your own.  If you skimp on a painting, then your painting will not turn out well.

PL calendar day 25, There is no reason to hold back

If you skimp on the paint, then your painting will not turn out well.  Live a fulfilled life every day by utilizing things, money, your knowledge or energy to their fullest

mixed media art  Q

Life is Art

Mother Nature 4.27.17

I came, and went, laughed, cried, blossomed and flew away.

You missed that moment, didn’t you?

A moment comes, and vanishes, within seconds,

true intentions come from the heart

no day is like another

a moment lost in anger

is time not lived in happiness

with winter comes a calming bliss

purity and stillness

no matter the chaos around us

when we are present in every way

a moment is never missed

life is what we make of it

choices we make,

be happy today, make it a special day

why, because you can!
