Doll Story 7.10.17

bottles on the drawer stand

Rosie stood back and looked at her chest of drawers.   It looked like she last saw it, yet it seemed that some of the powders were not as she had left them.

Meanwhile, Breeana was outside fussing with the vines along the fence.

She had carefully made her way down the path, pulling out as many weeds as she could along the way.  Listening to her music, time had slipped by it was probably time for her to go in.  She sensed that Rosie would be looking for her, and made her way towards the house.

Sure enough just as she reached the back door, it opened and Rosie was standing there, ready to call her in.  Realizing they had once more found their way to the same place at the same time, they both laughed and greeted each other.

Ever since they had met, they just seemed to be on the same wave length. it was a comfortable feeling, and the beginning of a fast friendship.

“Breanna” Rosie asked “did you dust my chest of drawers today?”

“No, I thought of it, but didn’t want to go into your room without permission, why?”

“Nothing really, I just have the feeling that something was moved, or changed” both turned to look back towards Rosie’s room.  To Breanna it all looked the same, but to Rosie, although it appeared to be the way she left it, something didn’t feel right.

It often happens where two people see the same thing, but each has their own impression of what it is they are seeing.  They each will have their own realities, that is why it is important to have open dialogue and to think before we speak or make assumptions.

PL Principle #2  I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather.  Rather I will always be creative and will look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.

PL Principle #7  I will not have a mind to be hasty, worry nor be pessimistic.

Keep your options open and be flexible

Leonie and ChenMay who had been listening, looked at one another, they had not gone into the room themselves, but they had wondered about the bottles lined up in a row, and they knew that Kit and China, like them had given the room more than a passing glance. Soon they hoped Rosie would tell them about the “secrets” in her room.  Did Breana know?

 

 

short story line

P1000082

he could hear the birds. feel the heat beating down through the trees, yet without opening his eyes, he knew he wasn’t in a park. the smell of rusted metal, and old oil and grease permeated the air.  his body was heavy, unresponsive, and whatever was on his chest was not going anywhere fast.

P1000085

his eyes still closed, he knew, instinctively knew, that the weight on this chest was alive, and it was gazing hard, accessing, patiently waiting.  Did he want to see what held him captive, sooner or later, he would have to look.  The weight on his chest shifted, but did not move away, he could feel the warm breath on his face. He was too stiff, tired and dazed, it would be unwise to move suddenly, if he could at all.  With a slow intake of his breath, he allowed his eyes to open.

P1000101

the sun hurt his eyes but he forced himself to keep them open, there was lush vegetation all around from what he could see, he was surrounded by the remains of vehicles, he was in a graveyard of scrap metal.  what he tried to avoid and was not succeeding were the dark emerald eyes flecked with gold that stared into his.  There was no emotion not human anyway that looked into his, just a pair of hypnotic eyes that spoke volumes, but none that he could recognize.

P1000088

suddenly the sun no longer gave him warmth.  now he felt a chill, it travelled from his head down to his feet.  This was something very different and very real, This was a she, he was sure, he was being held captive by a she, and he knew… she was wondering just what to do.  She wasn’t hurting him, she wasn’t gentle, she was exploring and sizing him up, but for what.  Why was he not afraid.  what was it that kept him still, and wondering, almost a partner in this unknown dance.

P1000087

life is what we make it.  how we respond to situations in life, can change the course or direction of our lives.  live being mindful of who you are and the opportunities around you. =^_^=

This is my story, that I’m sharing with you.  My mind likes to invent when I’m driving and waiting for lights or in traffic.

Wordless Wednesday – What?

IMG_20151118_083908781_TOP

We take pictures, that is what we do.. those of us with a camera at the end of our arms/fingers, we take pictures, some we use right away, some get filed away till we discover them another day.  Well this is Wordless Wednesday, and I thought, let’s have a look at previous files/folders.  There are several whippet owners out there, that have recently hooked up to my blog.  I thought I’d share a picture of our boy.  This is one that I couldn’t remember when I looked at the small previews.  I uploaded and there was the picture. While I was looking at the messy bed (he is great at messing the bed, our own whirling dervish) I saw this head behind him.  I knew it wasn’t me, I took the picture. I was I admit stumped for a second or two, wondering who was in the bed.

My hair is no longer that long, or black.  that did look like my pillow and it is where I would be.. What was going on ?  Then “bingo!” the light went on.  Those of you who know us, have probably guessed already. I couldn’t believe that I didn’t know, I really had to question what had happened.

There you have it, our secret it out…. the dogs have taken over the bedroom.  Wordless Wednesday it is…. Enjoy mid-week everyone… if you live with a whippet or Porti, be aware, they have minds of their own. Before you know it, they have you trained. =^_^=

 

PL Precept 7   Everything exists in Relativity

lost? or found?

DSC00090

a glove got lost

that glove was found

and left to  wait

should it be returned to its mate

some other day

meanwhile there it sits

out of harms way

a solitary reminder

that in some cases

it’s not that we don’t care

that we are no longer there

but life got in the way

too busy with other things

we missed realizing

that a part of us

fell away

& got left behind

this happens

when we are not

in tune with our mind

and

caught by surprise

when we find

that

one of two

is gone

leaving only

one

incomplete

For to be a perfect ONE ( pair)

it takes

2 to be 1

Yesterday was a day of sun and cloud, being a work day, this boat launch area was quiet, in the summer months when we dive by, it would be difficult to even find a place to park.  We stopped here to let the dogs have some outdoor fun.

This was the colour of the day, yes sunshine is nice, but I love the rather subdued and subtle shades  of an over cast day, if every day was sunny, we wouldn’t get to see the full palette of Mother’s Nature’s diverse and endless inventory of wonders.

Here is another Found? or Lost? for you….

DSC00086

While visiting a Tim Hortons (on the American side of the border, I came across the above dime and penny, laid out just as you see them  … I didn’t touch them.. I looked and found it interesting that someone would just leave them on the vanity, especially sitting there so neatly.  Were they in hand, and just laid down while hands were being washed…  Maybe a child had them, and left them when they were being tended to by a parent.. I didn’t know… but I wasn’t going to disturb them, so, I took a picture.

Life is interesting, fun and intriguing, how we accept our daily challenges and adventures is up to us..  Accepting, enjoying and letting go of moments.. is a life long challenge, sometimes it is easy sometimes it is not…. knowing that whatever it is, it is OUR life. Yours and mine… I’m just so happy knowing that you are part of my world,  In loving, sharing, caring, the exchange of ideas, thoughts,sights and sounds,.. WOW… what gifts.

looking back

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

It really was just another day on the road.  We stopped, and I got this feeling that we were being watched.  You cannot see in this picture, but in the darkness of the woodlands, was a deer checking us out….  well ok, I can’t say for sure it was a deer, but it had four legs, and piercing eyes.

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

I tried for another look, at that time I was using a digital Minolta, I confess that I am not a stealthy hunter when I cross over brush and fallen logs to get a closer look.  At the time, I didn’t know about  phone cameras where I could see what I was stalking.  It is in clearing an area on a shelf for a new acquisition ( an airplane clock) that I found the delinquent disk, with pictures from “another time”- labelled Bancroft.

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

From the pictures of the interior of the darkened woodland, I see I was determined .. and was not going to just walk away.  I’m  happy to say that this stubborn streak is still with me, much to the chagrin of others.   Now looking back many years later, what I have to show for this adventure of mine, is pictures of a forest woodland that held on to its mystery and mystic, why share the pictures, it’s a case of you had to be there… really there to appreciate the moment. =^_^=

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA  – gone gone gone, replaced many moons ago.

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

I have no idea what this last picture is all about, but decided to include it since there is so much black in the other pictures.  As a photographer, you have to accept that some of your artist captures, are not always, A1, but for sure, they all capture that moment in time, when you thought Ah Ha….

some one, or some thing

watched in the shadow of the trees

drawn to the feeling of being watched

I let myself be captured by the slight movement of the leaves

as always when totally caught up in the moment

my heart did a little dance

my sense of awareness went into over drive

would we connect

would my lens find its mark

no matter, I had to pursue my  need

to capture what I couldn’t really see

this adrenalin is pure, it comes from within

the artist in me is alert

for in a nano second, I’ll press connect

to the instrument in my hands

the moment passes, the thrill happened

will the climax be complete

when I look at the

picture on the screen

no matter what

I lived the moment

and the picture

that I will see

will be

a forever reminder

that in that second

I was part of life

in that space and time

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Do you believe that you are always connected to the Universe, and that, there are times, you are drawn to produce, or create something, because it just feels right..?  I believe that we are all artists in our own way, sometimes, what we do, is clear, the picture, a “master piece”  It conveys something to the artist and the viewers alike.  Other times, it is a reflection of a moment that came and went.  No more, no less.

Just be

harmony

Years ago I had a thirst for knowledge on the mystery of the Rapa Nui civilization and the statues called moai.

Easter Island

Today, I still have to pause when I see pictures like this one.  Theories have been bounced around for years.  Locals say the statues walked.

Mystery of Easter Island, is a NOVA-National Geographic special – it was on PBS, the page I saw did not give me a year.

Together in Harmony
