Chev Truck -favourite finds & people

birthday-grillWhat is this?

It is a gift from my son,& his bf & partner, wonderful Brig,  who is patiently holding it so I can see it.  The question was did I want it all.  Hmmm tough decision.  In the end I went with the fender and logo.  I would have loved the whole truck grill, BUT I did have to be somewhat realistic.  I don’t live on land with lots and lots of room, we are on a city lot, walking distance from the city’s core.  It now sits in the living room where I can see it every day.

PL Principle # 3   have a mind of appreciation towards others and things.

I am grateful that my son and his Brig are so thoughtful, they are such blessings in my life.  I appreciate that he spared me going out to the metal yards to round this up for myself.   I was planning on have a go at going there with the tools to harvest whatever I could find.  But lovely Brig and he went out on their own, and found it for me. =^_^=

prince-edward-2011-sand-banksA day of adventure, at Ontario’s Sand Banks.  It was on the cool side, the summer tourist and cottage season over, the beach was a paradise of sand and surf.

prince-edward-sand-banks-2011There is something hauntingly beautiful about spending time on a beach that at times is so crowded with human energy, that it is buzzing…  and finding it quiet and peaceful.  The land simply “BEING”.

prince-edward-sandbanksWe will be heading out at the end of this week, to go where-ever the road leads.  I love my memories of a time that was, but I am keen to discover, the world that will unfold as we take roads less traveled in our quest for new places to appreciate and enjoy

PL Precept #18  Each moment is a turning point

Learn to appreciate all and everything in your life, everything happens for a reason.

To wander and discover

all there was to see that afternoon

would have been impossible to do

what time I did have

amongst the rusted tarnished metal

was pure and simple joy

each piece told a story

each shade of rust and weathered paint

presented me with a genuine

connection that I found intoxicating

my encounter with

the treasures

was not sophisticated art

but it animated

my heart

What is it that attracts me to old trucks, cars, motorcycles, and bikes?  I haven’t a clue.  In recent years I’ve noticed that more and more I am drawn to pictures where one or more are featured.  Driving along hwy 37 in NY State past farms with old barns, I found myself searching for sight of a rusted out car.  More in the States than along the highways here, I’m rewarded by vintage vehicles being driven or for sale.  Some are covered in rust and barely standing, yet they have an allure for me.

Be still my heart, how this rusted decaying, bucket of metal can stir my emotions, I’ll never know.  But how I love to look at it.. the vibrant colours that takes place as it goes through its changes.  the way nature welcomes it back into her embrace.  So far I’ve only been able to gaze in wonder at the wonderful pictures I’ve found posted on Pinterest or other social media sites.

These are the colours I want to wear this fall.  In redoing my fall/winter wardrobe, I am searching out these colours.  There is something rich and satisfying about this palette, in the States I have been able to acquire a pair of old faded and worn, army fatigue pants and the matching long sleeve lite. jacket/shirt.  Obviously I can’t wear then at the same time, I look ridiculous since, I’m obviously not of an age that I would be in service, but the blended colours are soothing to the eye, and calming when worn with colours that harmonize. (mixed casual attire)  So, I’m eccentric, I’m happy =^_^=.

I am not alone with this old truck/car passion, there is an abundant source of art pictures that capture the beauty of the aged vehicles. Enjoy whatever makes you happy today and everyday.  When we do something we enjoy with Makoto (sincerity) we reap the rewards 100 fold.  Have you thought about the colours you wear and why you wear them?
