Chop suey 9.27.16 -abandoned

There are times when I feel simply overwhelmed by the creativity of others.  Thus was the case here, my husband is used to my hollering “stop the car, stop the car” and having to pull over turn around and bring me back to the “whatever” that brought on this outburst.  I was totally taken by this building, it was once an antique car lot.  The detail, the whimsical  character of the architecture.  I would have loved to have met the previous owner.

See the tie man!!  I loved, loved, loved it.  I toured around the building, as much as I could without being an intruder.

The second floor balconies made me itch with curiosity.  Wanting a ladder or access to the inside to I could get closer..  I’ll post a shot from the road, so you can see what I first saw.

Like HELLO.. how could I just drive by and not get a closer look.  It was on getting closer that I saw all the details, and the charming way the owner had put character into the building.

This is what life is.  Think about it.  How often do you meet someone, or see someone and think, how interesting, I wonder??  But, we never follow through, we never take that chance .. we are polite, and go about our business. I was blessed that in growing up, I was encouraged to meet and greet the world in a positive light.

Not only in old abandoned buildings and lost,left behind vehicles do I see beauty and wonder.  I see it in my fellow-man.

There will be more pictures of this house, (Norm’s “Thursday Doors”  but before I sign off, please let me show you the car that was left behind. It was being textured by Mother Nature, she was looking “some” good…=^_^=

Beauty if in the eye of the beholder, isn’t it ….

For those of you who love “rust detailing” and the different patina that Mother Nature can bestow on metal

this car is showing a lot of promise

What was, is…

Abandoned or forgotten, is there a difference…

On the 11th of each month, we in PL (Perfect Liberty) celebrate Ancestors Day,

with a special ceremony.  Through this ceremony, we express our gratitude

for the love and virtues of our ancestors, asking that we ourselves, continue

to grow and learn to bring love and understanding to others in the world around us.

By  now, most of you know I love to discover an old abandoned vehicle, and capture it

to enjoy and add to my Pinterest board, the neighbours I’m sure appreciate that i don’t

bring them home to display on the front lawn, or the back forty.  Not all of them are left to the elements

some like the one above have been lovingly restored, and are happily on the road again.

We can do that with an object, but with a human  heart, no……

Once the love and laughter is gone, and the body fails to carry on

we are left with an empty space, all that will remain is a memory in its place

Appreciate and love .. today…

In expressing appreciation to God in our daily lives, with sincerity (makoto)

we renew our determination to follow and practice a way of life  that ensures

our memories and our quality of life in the moment, will be good ones.

Seek to retain focus in  your faith and connection with God

Always – Forever

Namaste     –    Oyashikiri
