Don’t give up! Stick with it, as many times as it takes. Sometimes you want to just throw in the towel and say, “I give up”, but that is the time for you to dig deep and push through. Your sincere effort will invite a good outcome.

The day was clear but not bright, still I saw the sculpture of a magnificent tree (the hook).. couldn’t stop, I was on the other side of the highway headed out of the city.
It isn’t all the artificial coloured lights and the tinsel that shouts to me. Joy to the World… its the views I get when I am driving in the outskirts, nature simply being itself, farm land, a farm house up on a hill, the small towns I go through, the decorated verandas and front lawns of the homes. Yes, a red barn against the horizon, even the big silos and the farm machinery sitting waiting to spring into action when they are needed.
Not only in December is it time to celebrate the glory and wonder of the Universe and the diverse and interesting world that has shaped around us, these blessings should be appreciated and shared every day.
People make this world happen. People. We are doubly blessed when we can turn to our fellow woman/man and truly say from the heart, Thank you for being YOU, and sharing this day with me. Makoto.
I did stop to take pictures on my return into the city, but the lighting by then had changed… still I knew where it was hiding… =^_^=
Rocking the Blues -My friend Kira loved the Blues, she built a club so all her friends could share in her passion for the blues. DJs from all platforms came to share their tunes, and keep us rocking to the many genres of Blues that are played through-out this Universe of ours. Didn’t matter who you were/are, if you loved the blues, shared in the camaraderie of the Blues Tribe, you were welcome.
I have been away and didn’t know she had taken ill again. A friend wrote me last night, we will have a memorial played out over the week-end so that all of us that loved her can manage to get in. All the DJ’s will have a time slot so that you can share in what Kira loved best.. listen to the blues and share and be with friends.
This woman was a rock for me over the many years she has een in my life. Her generosity and loving spirit will always be with me. Rest in Peace my friend, you were an example to all of us, This is not farewell, it is … till soon
Today, day 2, PL calendar is Live each Day filled with hope. (this was Kira’s mantra and motto)
Even in situations when you feel trapped with no way out, face every challenge with purpose and enthusiasm and you will always a find a way.

Lately I have been watching a lot of Chinese Documentaries, learning about China, not the China I grew up with in my imagination. ( I was born in Canada) but historical and social memories, offered up by CGTN.com. To say it has been a learning experience would be an understatement.
Lucky is a happy clip, I grew up being entertained, we appreciated talent, we laughed shows were designed to delight and musicals were her favourites. She loved music that told stories of life, love, heartbreak, hope and more love.
