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.
The 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,
Today, 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.,
Sometimes we have to let go of the past – to live in the now.
PL Precept #1 Life is Art
you 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.

Another day is before me, bom dia, uma maravilhosa quinta feira to everyone!
the picture was day 26 but of what year?
The last few nights I have had the strangest dreams.. Well .. really if I think about it, they are not all that strange, the themes in most of my dreams are multi-coloured and always, I seem to be drifting from one “act” to another…usually I’m in the same locations, but the back drops are different. Players change in appearances but in the long and short of it all, they bear similar personalities to the actors I’ve interacted with in the past.
I found this picture in my files, and thought it appropriate for this post. The colours are cheerful, however there is something about the picture that although I like various aspects of it.. For me, the total doesn’t really pull together properly. And that, dear reader, is what I am “feeling” this morning. My dream, my recollection, the moment, etc. is OK, but there is a BUT.
Ever happen to you, can you relate. It is Tuesday after all, not Thursdays when I usually like to participate in Norm’s Thursday doors. link to Thursday Doors
What else to do but go forward with the day and see what transpires. Exciting eh~!
PL Precept # 18 Each moment is a Turning Point
??? so where is the picture of my newest discovery. Simple, it was so good, I ate it before I could take a picture. That is what happens when you skip breakfast, buy fresh avocados and come into the house hungry. I mashed the avocado and tossed it with mayo and garlic salt. Nothing fancy, but oh so yummy.
I’ve got fresh shiitake mushrooms and new type of dried mushroom soaking so that I can have mushrooms and “fish” for supper. Side order of fresh green veggies from the Asian grocers ( T & T ) I got fresh ginger, that I will slice into slivers to toss with the greens. I am not going to tell you about the toasted bagel I had for dessert.. =^_^=
No, to those of you raising an eye brow.. nothing on the bagel, no butter, not cream cheese, I ate it nude.

Whether things turn out perfectly or not, the important thing is to take what you’ve learned and apply it the next time.
Enjoy the day before you. Make the most of each moment. They can never be relived. Be present. Be in the NOW.
Another moment in Norway… look at the clear blue skies… it feels “brisk.. maybe not, will have to wait for Bonnie to come home to find out.
I can see you in the distance
I know you are there
everywhere I look
I feel your presence
tears have abated for now
like the rain on the window pane
I know the sky will clear
but you my darling
will always remain
in the sun, the sky
the night and stars
you are, today, tomorrow
Another great picture Bonnie, thank you.
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
