meaning

While walking the grounds at parc Omega, we came across this bench. I didn’t have time to meditate on it too much at the time, so I grabbed a photo. Looking at the photo I wonder why I took it at such an angle when perhaps doing it another way would have been “prettier”.. ie. no picnic bench or tent in the background.

It is the bench I wanted .. why because of the detail and the craftsmanship. There were many carvings, for sure I will return to see them all again. I wondered how many artists had been employed, I know what a connection I get to a piece when working with wood. I an NOT good at it, but I love handling and getting to know the piece that I am working on. Over the years, I have realized that I prefer instant gratification .. i.e. I work with acrylics and not oils. The medium suits my temperament and style of expression.

Wood has a rhythm of dance that requires a different focus and attention. My tools are still waiting, some within reach, and always somewhere is apiece of wood… patiently waiting.

Things that happen to us all have meaning. Everything that happens to us, happens for a reason. Each and every occurrence is a chance for you to improve yourself.

Remember this piece, I found it while walking that day. I badly wanted to bring it home, my friends, encouraged me to leave it in its resting place. I did, I knew that it was my passion for collecting that was”itching”.. but a captured memory,, will make do. The little woodland charmer, will be there for someone else to enjoy.

We all see the world through our personal lenses, whatever you discover, and decide to do.. make it worthwhile. Everything in life has meaning!

sharing

Two rocks, standing side by side, companions for life.. no more.. no less. Love is.

There will always be a way. As long as you are serious, there is no reason for you to give up. Move forward one step at a time and things will always turn out for the best.

peek-a-boo

The sculptures in the fall autumn settings were jaw dropping. The love of wood and what a craftsman can do with a piece of wood is something that I truly appreciate. Walking through the park I not only got to see real black bears, but the carvings of many woodland creatures.

It has been far too long since I have walked through the woods, surrounded by the falling leaves, and glorious views that are growing out of massive boulders and rock. Quebec has to be one of the most beautiful provinces in Canada (to me) when it comes to geography it blasts me away. It has a rugged beauty that can assail the senses 4 seasons of the year.

shall we share a cuppa ?

Since there is no getting out of your vehicle where the animals are, and I only had my Huawei the bears were cuddly little balls of fluff, and we know they were big waddling masses of muscles, teeth and claws. So the pictures are for reminders of that moment in time. only. We did get to see their dens, and how some liked to be social and others liked to maintain their distance This big ball of fur had a tan nose, and had placed himself high on a rock ledge overseeing his domain. Very imposing. Body language can say volumes.

What will yours say about you today?

Tuesday

Colourful Chinese Lanterns, to celebrate the news that friends are coming up this way to see the fall colours. First they will go to Nova Scotia, the fall colours there will be amazing especially around the Cabot Trail.

Thinking of the good news, and the wonderful artist array that Mother Nature is laying out these days, I am off to see what of her beauty I can capture. Yay another new day!

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.

Another Saturday =^_^=

How many Saturdays can one have in a week. Obviously I can. When you are retired anything is possible.

Look at the marvelous day we had. The colour palette was subtle and vibrant at the same time. Truly amazing to be out in the majesty of the day.

Today being the 21st of the month we will be celebrating Thanksgiving with our PL service at 7 PM. Today’s calendar message..

Let’s be thankful for everything we have right now “Now” is an accumulation of every moment leading up to it, and everything that continues to progress and develop to become”now”. Be Thankful for everything.

Please take a moment in silent prayer today for loved ones who have done their time on earth, and are now going “home”…. Thank you.

the wind blows

While the corn just sits, waiting for what comes next

When we flow with life around us, our flexibility is often helpful in the choices we make. Standing still and never looking around, means much of the world will pass you by

Then of course you can find yourself in this situation, where the rest of the world is simply crowding your space, and it has nothing to do with you at all. You are in the crowd, but you do stand out. =^_^+ challenges, choices and decisions. Here we are, starting another day!

rust you say!

Nay it is art…

under the majesty of the sky

the temperament of the clouds

the treasure lay,

surrounded by a crowd of flowers

lush and green waving in the breeze

cheerfully saying hello to passersby

oh… for a closer look

checking mirrors back and front,

I pulled over to seek my treasure out

IMG_20190831_112744_resized_20190901_123148650

not gems that gleam in the sun

but a sturdy piece of artwork

that has been lovingly blessed each day

by natures wonderful expressions

(most call it weather)

set in concrete for all to see,

this piece of art has grown lovelier with each passing season

I can’t say for sure, but I would guess

that not many are struck by its beauty

or come to admire, yet pass it each day

such is life, in French there is a saying

“to each his/her own”

You see rust, you say! Lad show me the way!


PL calendar day 3

Instead of worrying, do something about it..

It doesn’t help to over think situations such as, “What if this happens?” or “Things might end up that way.”  Instead be proactive and change how you see and do things in each situation.
