Afternoon greetings, boa tarde!

When I got up this morning, I felt rested after a good night’s sleep so I decided I would do a few errands close to home.  I knew or should I say hoped that I would hear from the adjustor or the dealer about my car. At nine I prepared to leave expecting to be back in a couple of hours tops.

The day was clear, a little overcast, and not too cold.  As I prepared to leave, I decided to change my footwear, from sturdy walking shoes to my gum boots.  ??? why I had no idea, since I had no plans to be out of the city.  But.. went with my instinct and put on my Bogs.  They are comfortable after all.

All good plans and planning were for naught. Circumstances were such that instead of coming home, the adjustor called me, when I was less than 10 minutes from my street.  The towing company would not release my car without my authorization.  Even though I had given them that previously, it was not enough, they wanted me to sign a release form because I had personal items in my car.

The pound as they call it, was WAY out.  Not a little out, but a long way out.  When I finally got there, it was all mud, not just a little mud, but deep rutted thick squishy wet mud that sucked anything that dared enter the grounds. YAY THANK YOU GOD!!! I was wearing my boots.

In PL we are reminded over and over, to trust in that inner voice,  The Universe works in special ways.  I drove home with gratitude and appreciation that with time my faith has devloped and I believe.. PL Precept # 11 Always be with God,

Yes it was a frustrating at times, but I did it, I got what was needed done.  Thank you thank you thank you, to all of you who care and watch out for me.  I appreciate you all.

lost and found

butterfly huawei1

If I were an object, I would say I was lost

if broken I would hope to be fixed

found by a stranger, I hope they would rescue me

but, \I am not an object,

I am not lost, nor am I broken

So I don’t need to be found, or fixed

Life is not playing a trick on me

I am in mourning, lost in my own thoughts

realizing that I am in uncharted territory

like a butterfly I am buffeted by the wind

there is no place to hide

on the outside I shimmer and shine

while inside I dip and dive

from the sublime to mediocre moments

while I wait for the  painful reality of now

becomes tomorrow

and another day.

I miss what was

no more no less

Q


Do I feel stressed, no, but tonight I am sad, in May it will be a year since my husband passed…I am overwhelmed at times, at just how much awareness I have of how love is a blessing in all its forms. Thank you my dearest friends, when you reach out, it is a balm and a reminder that love is Universal – You are appreciated and fill my heart with gratitude.  I love you!

follow your heart

Wow.. a barely in focus picture of a wall with ice. Yet this is what struck me yesterday as thought-provoking.  I was going through a McDonald’s drive through.  When the bigger of the lot had me reaching for the camera.  Of course I had one eye on the line ahead of me .. while fumbling for the iPhone in my cluttered backpack.

march 3 mcDonalds InnisCan you see the little eye and the bird’s head peeking out at the bottom…  Yesterday the whole ice sculpture made me smile and gasp in pleasure.. (I know, I don’t get out much)

All this to say, “to each his/her own” we are all so different and unique from one another.  Truth be told, often even to ourselves.

I even had the ice on the left, wanting to be with the others that hung in a group further along the wall.  imagination is wonderful.

You have all heard me say time and time again, I like being “happy”

A lesson I am learning especially since my husband passed away, is that happiness is where you find it, and is at times redefining itself.  That joy of turning to your partner and without a word, you both know, one of you just had a burst of “happy” or an inspiration, is gone, only the memory remains.  Time, love and faith, will heal these moments, but for now….   What is, is.

Follow your heart while also thinking about the happiness of others

Always be true to yourself in your words and actions.  Strive to make others happy with a sincere heart

midnight

midnight series d

Good morning, very early morning =^_^=  Bom dia  -domingo 17th,

At one time I would write, a pen always near by I would let the words flow, then sit back and discover where  or what my thought process was up to.  Now I am more likely to pick up a tube of paint, bottle of ink, or some other visual media that will allow my creativity to express in abstract.  Today I visited my favourite fine arts store and explored the new offerings that were set out to tempt and tease.

Interestingly what I came away with, was not what I had gone in to look at.  With spring around the corner, I was looking to add to my neon, spring collection.  Colours that would call out the fresh mint of new leaves, or the soft bunny colours and little baby chicks.  But no, I was drawn instead to colours that were metallic, pearlized and in the realm of steam punk maybe?

midnight series c In playing with the colours when I got home, I thrilled at the texture and fluidity of the paints.  So happy with my choices that I didn’t get to play with all of them, because, the testing, turned out to excite me just the way it was.

midnight series b

Midnight is the witching hour (or so they say)  I put on YouTube and listened to old favourites, Vince Gill, Alan Jackson, and looked again at the pages in my Art Journal, even the sheet of mixed media that I started on, looks too good to mess with.  Wonder how I will feel when I wake up and look at it again. =^_^=  Meanwhile.. you got it.. I am happy in the moment.

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

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

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
