When I visited the rapids the other day, I was telling my friend how it was many years ago, people sitting on the rocks, enjoying picnics on the grounds.  Now access to the water is blocked off for safety reasons.  The water is constantly churning and thunders down the channels between the rocks with a deafening roar.

It was gray and overcast on the day the pictures were taken, and I hadn’t expected the pictures to be almost monotone, shades of black and white.  They just turned out that way.  I find the pictures have a timeless quality to them, I am enjoying them, and allowing the memories to slowly filter into the present.

Today April 14th. the calendar reads..

Be a person who invites happiness

Live your life with good timing and respond quickly to whatever appears in front of you.  By doing so, things will keep getting better and better.

I believe that.  I drive by on the bridge you see there, often, sometimes, once or twice a week.  I travel that way to get to a part of the west end … I don’t even look at the rapids. With the truck windows up… one doesn’t hear the water.  Making time to actually stop and visit the park, was unplanned.  But in doing so, I have created another great memory. a “happy”

“Happy” makes me smile, “Happy” is a feel good.  May your day be filled with lots of “HAPPY”

Love is-

looking out across the water on a dull day, and seeing a crystalized tree, thanks to the cold mist.

there is beauty in every day, every moment, and every second, we need only look with our hearts.

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.

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

IMG_0104

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

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…….
