I dream, I walk, I talk

snap, crackle, pop

the mind is active taking off in all directions

time, to astral travel and make corrections

pop, crackle snap,

oh dear, earth to outer space

time to chat

I need a face to face

turn on the light please or open the light please

the date has been moved ahead, or has it been pushed back

costco 1.26d

does that picture have meaning, or is the meaning the picture

close the light, or shut the light

costco 1.26cI realized that we were miles apart on that one thought

you really were adamant and for me.. simply, it didn’t matter

what mattered, was that you be happy, I let it go

instead, I said, I loved you….

and my heart sent loving thoughts your way,

you laughed, and that was that.

shades of gray

IMG_0104

stark, cloudy, bleak, no, not bleak, just gray

what is there to say

the water looks dark, cold and uninviting

no need to test it with my toe

by the time I walk across the snow-covered grounds

my feet and toes will  no longer be cozy warm

I think I will pass, and not go near the water’s edge

that is something I can do on another day

meanwhile I will view from afar

the far away shoreline, before

I head back, following the path that I’ve taken

back to the truck.

Not really exciting, but refreshing, yes.

A winter’s day, shown in shades of gray

I found some colour to brighten the gray

I will come back another day

We are heading into a storm

for winter, this is the norm

after all this is Canada eh!

              David Bowie on roller skates————————————-     Roller disco dancing

Another time another place.  I loved roller skating to music, feeling the beat, and if you had someone to skate with,  you could waltz and two-step doing some pretty fancy stuff. I believe the David Bowie advert, was for a big disco roller event in Australia.  I didn’t get to Australia to strut my stuff, but I did head for the board walk in California along the ocean.  Such exhilarating times, you met others with the same interest and you got to chat and just hang out.

Now I’m told, social interaction is not allowed or thought to be a safe thing to do.  When out at gatherings, or in parks, it is advised to stay in pairs, and not talk to strangers.  I hear on the radio and television news broadcasts, always about shootings, robberies, and lately, accidents due to people texting or answering their cell phones.

It is common to show movies and have television series(s) that include violence, abduction, shootings and fights.    And we wonder why there is a rise in gun shootings, stabbings and gang violence ?? Really?

Lately here, there is a hue and cry about the legalization of marijuana as if it has suddenly thrust itself on our society,  ?????????? to my knowledge it was around long  long before my time, and I’ve been around for a while.

There is a spoke missing in the wheel of “common sense” it seems to be all about stirring up rather than bringing peace or a state of calm.  When it appears that the media, the box office – entertainment (movies)  is always after sensational, or totally outlandish behaviours to bring in the monies or “ratings”

I don’t know readers.. as one cartoon character used to say  “thatttttttsss all folks”

banana's in PJs Feb.2017 AustraliaEl momento en que percibs es la oportunidad

A chance esta no momento e que se percebe

The moment you notice is the best timing

Procrastinating will only weigh you down.  The best time to do something is when you notice it.  You will feel lighter both physically and spiritually.   (PL Calendar # 19)

chop suey Sunday 26th

Today, was a day of errands.  After church I was busy gathering ingredients for a soup, and then to a craft supply place that still had their special sale on.  With the holidays around the corner, I have once again, begun to work at my “work table.” I want to finish cards that I have promised for a few “retail” outlets, and want to make a few personal greetings that need to be posted soon.

To accomplish this, I wander and look at everything that I discover along my path, one never knows when an idea or a creative moment will present itself.  Funny I go into a shop looking for a very specific item or theme, and come out with way more than I had anticipated.  Anyone else, know this curious “happening” it is as if an elf is putting things in our basket when we aren’t looking.  When we do see it, we realize that ..”wow! that is a great ^whatever^ guess I will keep it.”

Fortunately, more often than naught, these are the items that will be the first to be consumed or used in the creative process.

If you are someone who delights in homemade soup… then you are likely familiar with the above utensils… maybe not these, but a strainer of some kind.

I start my soups with bones, for me the most delightful of tastes is the meat that is closest to the bone. Exquisite flavour can be obtained by combining the oddest ingredients, then after hours of slow simmer, straining the broth, only returning to the liquid ambrosia, the jewels you want to feature.  Sometimes they have absolutely nothing to do with the making of the broth.  But their taste, harmonized perfectly to offer up a feast not only for the eyes, but for your taste buds … not to mention the aromatic teasing of your senses

All this to say… I’ ve got a soup on the back burner, and I steamed my veggies to put on my rice, in a Pad Thai sauce.  Hmmm must be time for me to eat.

Hope you all had a great week-end.  Tomorrow we start a brand new week! Soon a new month will appear too…  YAY!!!!

Make every moment count, and enjoy all that life has to offer.. The more you succeed, the merrier life will be.

orange tree

orange tree xI loved this little orange tree.  Every year I would prune it back and bring it inside so it could survive our Canadian winters.  Circumstances were that it grew very big, and we simply were unable to bring it back in.

Fortunately, our niece knew of just the right home and the little, now larger orange tree, went to live somewhere new.  Happiness is letting go, knowing when it is time to say good-bye so that life can continue to grow and bring joy to someone else.

For months now we have been trying to declutter.  We have been finding things we forgot we had.  They are leaving to begin their lives again. Going where they can be rediscovered, and enjoyed and used in the light of day.  Not stored away and forgotten.

When I see piles of this and that.. I’m heartened knowing it is temporary, every day a  bag or box leaves for somewhere else.  It is a work in process.

What are you working on today? Strive towards a positive outcome.  Life is good!!!

PL Precept #15  All is a Mirror

 

 

beginnings

IMG_4178

The fun of starting something new, is that one never really knows what it will end up to be.  what I showed you yesterday, and this today, are beginnings.  Like one would sketch an idea, I am using fabric.  Already when working this piece last night, I could see a glimmer of what I was NOT doing, that I think I will try when I continue playing,

IMG_4083

When we look at a visual, it leaves an impression, that our gray cells will process in different ways, over the course of minutes, hours, days, who knows when what you saw, will reclaim a moment of your “now” to present itself in a different way.

Whatever your medium, photography, paint, ink, text, fabric, if you are expressing yourself, through a visual, the colours, patterns, shapes and textures that impressed themselves on your psyche will show up.  Some colour combinations will never draw my attention, because, my “personal” makeup is drawn to shadows/light and colours that are attractive to me.

IMG_4086

This is one of the reasons I love life, and find it so fascinating.  I “see” the world in such a magical way.  I loved this picture, didn’t know why till I got it home and saw it on my PC screen.  When I took the picture, it was instinct.  Now all I see is the wild animal preparing to chow down.  =^_^=

Beginnings never have to end. Love the choices you make in a day, embrace the adventure of life.  Appreciate your friends.  Life IS.
