Feliz domingo

Good morning all, if you live with dogs, you know that getting out of bed in the middle of the night can lose you your place in bed very quickly.  Pulling up the covers didn’t help, they simply repositioned themselves so that your entry back under the warmth of the blankets can’t be managed without their help.  You will note that neither one of them has drifted back into a deep sleep.  The little mischief makers are patiently waiting.

Thank you, yes, I did manage to get back under the covers, all three of us had a very fitful sleep.  And now.  Another day begins.

paint time

Good day everyone….

No two artists when looking at a blank canvas see the same thing.  Two photographers looking in the same area, along the same street, will each have a different “capture” in their lens.  Ever heard these words.. ” you were there, didn’t you see bla bla bla”   Well, you both might have been there at the same time, but you both very likely didn’t see the same things.  Each would have viewed the scene or circumstances from his/her own perspective.

Now the word “artist” what does it imply?   Or the word “crafter”  are they one and the same… hmmmm. you thinking about it?

Does it come down to how quickly you want your pant to dry?  No two mediums dry the same way ,even when choosing an ink pad, you have to know what you want to do with the ink you are using.. if you use the wrong kind, your inks can bleed or run… even when you thought it was dry… kinky right..

That is why I love life and all the artist challenges it provides.  When I make the wrong choice, .. I get to start over or try to work with the results of my 1st choice. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it just doesn’t.  A friend draws in chalk, she lives the moment, when it is gone, she has lived the experience,  and moves on.. that is a beautiful way to let go.

I loved the play of shadows and light on the bramble above.  It struck me at that moment that it was full of intrigue. Today should I see it again, I might not give it a second glance. It would simply be a mass of twigs and branches waiting for spring  and rejuvenation.

La vie est belle, it is our perception that can cloud or colour our view.

I prefer arylic and water colours to oil… why…. paint time… =^_^=

PL Precept #1  Life is Art

walking in a daze

So much to see, so much to do, there are times when it feels like one is visiting Alice in wonderland.  Only we aren’t sure how we got there, or just what to do next.  It happens, you are still being social, getting things done, but somehow you have lost the connection to your modem.

You know something is amiss, just can’t put your finger on it. We’ve all heard the expression, “one door closes, another opens”..  Sometimes it just isn’t obvious where that other door is.  Some doors are not what we expected, but then that is the beauty of life isn’t it.  To grow and develop our knowledge base, we have to explore beyond our known borders.

Is today a day we will open a door, or will we admire the door and keep walking.  Do we lean towards doors with history, or do we wait for that one door that will beckon. ???

Admittedly some doors are well boarded up, so do we really want to go inside.  In my world the answer would be, probably not, I tend to live in the moment, and going back isn’t an option for me.  I have discovered that life will bring me the lessons that I need to relearn, perhaps in a different format, but I recognize the lesson.  Maybe not at once, but at a given moment the light bulb goes on, and I just know, I’ve been in this space and time before.  Perhaps the players are different and the location, however the lesson is one that I’ve faced before.

PL Precept # 7 (of 21)   Everything Exists in Relativity

PL Precept # 12   Everything has a way according to its Name

When I hit a phase of walking in a daze, I “Let Go” and just try to slow down so that I can regroup.  In the car while going to the gym, instead of going to the one closest to me, I took a left and drove to the one further away.  This meant driving several miles out of my way, but on open road. Driving can be therapeutic.

This is what I heard when pushed the play button – it made a difference in my mood, and set the pace for the rest of the day.

Choreograph your day, your way!

Namaste – Oyashikiri
