Your surroundings are a Reflection of YOU  PL Calendar day 9

Para pessoas preocupadas surgem fatos preocupantes  Para otimistas, fatos alegres e para os gentis, fatos agradaveis.

A person who constantly worries will always find things to worry about.  An optimistic person will attract happiness.  A kind person will always be blessed with kindness in return.


May the calm serenity of a peaceful moment  bless your day….

Happy Friday everyone..

Thursday doors 2.1.18

When you see a building off in the distance, you know you are going to get closer.  No matter the weather or the road conditions on that day,

A simple structure, not sure what it is for, I wondered if it is decoration or for children to play in while the parents enjoy a coffee break.


When I found the door I was excited.  Wow… it is all in the details.. rustic, charming, certainly a cheerful moment in an otherwise ho hum day .. (weather wise)  My husband and I enjoy this park, in the summer, it is not over crowded, and the breeze from the water is always refreshing.

We didn’t get there last fall, due to circumstances beyond our control, so this was a very pleasant surprise.  Put a door on something and all of a sudden, it becomes a much more interesting place.

PL calendar 1 – It is important to live in harmony with our surroundings.

This little house and door,  fit into the landscape just beautifully. =^_^=

Maintain harmony in your lives, daily, harmony is the basis of a peaceful society.



shades of gray


stark, cloudy, bleak, no, not bleak, just gray

what is there to say

the water looks dark, cold and uninviting

no need to test it with my toe

by the time I walk across the snow-covered grounds

my feet and toes will  no longer be cozy warm

I think I will pass, and not go near the water’s edge

that is something I can do on another day

meanwhile I will view from afar

the far away shoreline, before

I head back, following the path that I’ve taken

back to the truck.

Not really exciting, but refreshing, yes.

A winter’s day, shown in shades of gray


I found some colour to brighten the gray

I will come back another day

We are heading into a storm

for winter, this is the norm

after all this is Canada eh!

soyez tranquilles



moments pass

yet stillness


more lingering


Make every day special, we only live it once.

Wednesday 10.04.17

Good morning everyone, my thoughts are still lingering on the country roads.  What is your feeling when you have wonderful opportunities to enjoy land that isn’t really cultivated and reconfigured by developers.  We are denied access for our own safety,which in most cases, intellectually I understand.

I know that to many a well manicured lot is their goal. They work and slave to get it just right, to have each blade of equal height, and even cut in the same direction.  Myself I am drawn to the wild grass, full of colourful leaves and textures from odd ball ” weeds”

Even today the age-old controversy on weeds and their benefits to society continues.  Many cultures use plants that we call weeds, either in their culinary dishes, or as herbal remedies .. and and and.  Still we spend millions of dollars on synthetic medicine, a lot of it that fails and is not successful. (we don’t get to hear about that too much)  While what nature supplies us with, we question, and bicker over.  In all life there is purpose.  We need only look, or seek to see.

As humans, we seem to think that we are equal or better than Nature,  Nature provided us with clean pure air, and what have we done to it over time.

I am rambling, it is October, I have gotten out my broom, and will start to polish the handle, it is well worn, but still useable.  I certainly don’t sweep with it.  Good heavens! brooms are for riding!!!

I obviously want to trespass, where for my own safety,  I am to stay out. Norm, Cindy,  Alex, someone please lend me a telephoto lense.  Just kidding, I’ll be good, I know come Hallows Eve, I can wander, unseen, through the night  %^&* wrings knarled hands  long pointed nails painted inky black, with gleeful dielight,  and with a devilish gint in her slanted eyes  she hits – post- chuckling all the way…….

October 3 – changes

dark forest waer on acrylicAfter the events of the last couple of days, weeks, I welcome October and all its silly fright nights that build up to the end of October.  For weeks now, I’ve seen the fun and silliness that people have and enjoy when they plan their special outfits for the events that lead up to Halloween.  Not just the young, the older shoppers as well.

Stagecoach road 10.3

What IS behind the wall of trees, and mounds of earth.  At this location, as I neared I could hear the rumble of big trucks.

stagecoach road greely on the right of entrance

They were backing up and emptying their load of gravel and sand, the vegetation was so dense, I saw very little, but I did grab a picture on the other side of the roadway.

This with the water is what I see from the road, at the first No Trespassing Pit I come to. It is lovely, but the No Trespassing signs are everywhere.  I took this from the road.  All this to say, that although I started out thinking of ghouls and goblins, and painting spider and furry critters.. the drive out to Mountain, turned my thoughts around.

I am still going to  paint a howling scene and enjoy  the creative rush I get in October, but wanted to share with you, how easy it can be, to go with the flow.  NATURE is so good at drawing us in, and helping us to expand our horizons.  Help us turn a page.

Mid week everyone.  Make every day count.  Enjoy whatever comes your way, find appreciation in all you do.


PL Precept #18  Each moment is a turning Point.


Thursday, week 2 of treatments


Nature has many faces, depending on where we are at a given time, what we will see and experience , are miles apart, different in every way, yet beautiful at the same time.

With the many prayers and healing thoughts coming our way, how can we not be enriched in every way, by the thoughtful and caring generosity of our friends.

PL Precept # 11  Always be with God.

PL Precept # 7  Everything exists in Relativity
