You didn’t stop, you simply passed me by. I had to follow you with my eyes and stay focused on bringing you back. Finally you turned and came back to find me. It is not easy to get your attention when you are busy passing time with someone else. Sigh. Here i am, I am really always here, YOU simply need to remember to LOOK, be AWARE, stay connected. I the Universe is always here in and around you. Always, I am in the air you breathe, I live in every molecule of your BEING. The frequency of YOU and ME is LIFE…aka LOVE
Good or bad, it is your mirror. Sincere expressions invite good results, but insincere expressions can lead to unexpected trouble.
Once upon a time a dragon came to visit. “Oh” said I, ” what pretty colours you are! ”
“hmmmp” he said, “I’m just passing through”
So, I took a picture of him and posted him on Instagram, I went about my day and didn’t think much more about him. I was having a “dragon” kind of day, and really wasn’t that interested in what he had to say.
The next day, I was busy with activities that I couldn’t put away. Today was the day, so I had to be present and social in a “family” kind of way. By mid day, after guests were gone and I was now back home on my own. All I could think of was that I wanted to pray. It was pouring rain, the clouds were bleak and gray, but nothing was going to stand in my way. The quiet, tranquility of the church, the peace of love and community, was drawing me, like a moth to a flame.
Silently I prayed, my words and thoughts, came, they flowed, they flew into the air, the heaviness, the pain, slowly drained away. PL Precept # 11 Always be with God.
PL Precept # 5 One’s Self is Lost by being Emotional
PL Principle #2 I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather. Rather I will always be creative and will look for short comings in my own thinking and actions,
When I came home, the dragon looked at me and winked. The brat I thought. I reached out and with steady hand, and knowing actions, his friends came to light.
Just like that… the dragon smiled, his friends pranced and I was smitten with their charm. My grin went from ear to ear… life is good when we believe and trust in God
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… =^_^=
Facebook has a habit of popping the past at you. This morning, I found this on my FB page. I wondered what on earth !! then I read the notation at the bottom, they had provided that too.
Do you recall what you did 6 years ago? And the next question, Do you really want to know?
Curious, that’s all.
Personally I care more about what I’m doing now and how I live now, PL Precept # 16 All things progress and Develop. Every moment counts, I love the experience of living. The past.. yes it was good at the time, but the reality is, I don’t even know where Mr. Spud is today, what happened to him. OH and the spuds, were they significant? who knows, that was then, this is now.
