pause pushed

DSC00030.JPG

I stepped out of the car the other day, without moving, I was lost

Sometimes it happens, without knowing it, I somehow pushed pause

so while the rest if the world drives by, children play, and daylight fades away

meanwhile, I am in pause mode, and here I will stay

Till reality and memories catch up, to my odyssey in space

Wakefield 3

no mistake, what is, is.

one can never go back.

Thursday moment

 

IMG_1588 Ireland Belfast

A window that captures a moment in time

a moment long-lived, yet, now lost in time

Took a trip to Ireland, for this moment to happen

that was yesterday, this is today.

Today, when I saw the colours,  I thought of Brazil

two places I have never been

Life is “funny” that way

in an instant we can travel the globe

never leaving home,

why, because home is where your heart is.

mine is alive and well, still beating strong,

the window is till in Ireland,

 the moment has passed

but the thoughtful moment of inspiration,

a gift, long to be remembered

Q

past, present, they are all the same, to live in the now, we gather it all, so that today will be an even better day, for one and all.  You are truly loved, now and always.

Wednesday musing

9d7458dc97c0b4f9a9465b7039b4bd80

somewhere, sometime, a different scene played out around these doors, the pump was busy every now and then, and a traveller would stop and sit a spell

how you doing, nice day isn’t it,

going far, what else can I do for you?

now we drive up and wait in line for a self-serve pump

pay the pump with a plastic card, put the gas in ourselves,

and drive away, not a word is spoken.  no one cares.

social niceties, and genuine customer service

if it could be seen , would look like the picture above.

still there, however not appreciated, just a memory

of another time and place

Well well well

IMG_5174Well,well,well…

Bom dia, feliz sexta feira, happy Friday everyone.

What is with the well, well, well…  my reaction to a news story this morning, where one police officer shot another officer. Well, well, well, really, I can’t go beyond my reaction. It is  stunner, perhaps because in my past law enforcement was part of my life, I don’t know.  I have been away from this field for too many year, to know what the climate is like these days.  This is life isn’t it, we are calmly going about our daily business, when out of the blue, you hear something, or see something, that startles, or gives you cause for pause.

Life is happening all around us, some we hear about,, some we don’t, other times, it is right before us, and we never see it, or know that it is happening. But it is. A reminder that we don’t know what is around that corner, we know NOW. For myself, I know that I have to focus more on the now, be focused/aware, it is a fine art, and one that needs practicing every day.

PL calendar day 30     Use your results to make the next time even better

Whether things turn out perfectly or not, the important thing is to take what you’ve learned and apply it the net time.

ps. my sister did the above artwork, I had not seen it before, it was one of her first attempts at working with a new medium. It is so colourful and joyful.  It is giving me a smile, hope you catch it and pass it on.  *wink.*  Smile everyone, it is Friday.

the mist within

We leave a trace everywhere we go, it seems impossible to enjoy without some how taking or leaving something behind. Some harmonize better than others. A wound may heal physically, but it will never be the same, ever.  Life does go on, we are blessed in ways that we will never truly fully understand, Nature will soon blanket the scarred and littered land around us with the beauty of fallen snow.

IMG_1477The fairy tale world of a winter wonderland, will lull the weary, allowing for time to recharge and erase haunting memories.  Right now she is blessing us with a wonder of colours and vistas of raw umber and burnt sienna interwoven with deep golden hues interspersed with  rusty reds,

IMG_1475Today, I am the birch, patiently waiting for you to  drive by, tires rolling across the asphalt, and the quiet to reappear till the next motorized vehicle comes along.  Please do not be offended, it is simply time for us to hibernate.,

Letting go

Sometimes we have to let go of the past – to live in the now.

PL Precept #1    Life is Art

 

staying connected

calendar 26you have heard the expression ‘pretty as a picture’  this sure appealed to me, when I saw it on our Japanese calendar I took a photo and used it for one of my blogs

That was a while ago, and today if you ask me what it says…. I have no idea… I would have at the time because someone would have translated it for me.

Yesterday, during service, while everyone was taking in the moment, I felt a  ~current of change~ while I still was aware of all that was going on and being said, a part of me-disassociated.  I don’t know how else to describe it.  It was much like revisiting the above picture, knowing it, knowing I liked the sentiment, but what it was escaping saying me.

Usually I would have shared this with members, but for some unknown reason (to me) then, and still now, I fell silent.  That silence stayed with me for over an hour.  I interacted yes, but that niggling feeling remained, disappearing only after I got home.

It  like being connected and being disconnected at the same time.
