no words needed

Not one person walked by this car without whipping out their phones to take a picture. I did wait awhile to see if the owner would come out.  But no, so I captured a few myself and left the area.  There was a whole theme on the top too.  It would have been hard to get a picture without the other getting another person in the picture.  That is how much attention this car was getting.

The hours, the attention to detail, this was  a dedicated passion. That edging is coins, pennies, dimes and nickles.  There was something to see, everywhere you looked. Kudos to the owner of the car, that is what I call, personal expression!

=^_^=  What will you do today to make someone smile….

fall day, 9th. Nov.

Sometimes it is hard to see where one part of a picture begins and where it ends. Is it one or is it two.  It all comes down to perspective.

some leaves fall and retain their grace, other’s wither and fade away, yet still there is beauty, for when they live, we so enjoyed all they provided. In the brand new light of a sunny day, we know that with today’s change, it will be fleeting, for tomorrow, the cycle begins again.

Today this house still stands, but soon the new owner is going to rebuild, and what I saw today, will never be again.

My memory will be of the aging couple who lived here when we moved in next door.  I am sure they had to adjust to our totally revamping their previous neighbours home and garden.  Now many years later, it is our turn to adjust.  The new owner is a developer, and where once stood a single family home, will be a multiple structure.  Infill.

What will tomorrow bring, your guess is as good as mine.  What is fact, is that no change is permanent, change is the only constant in life.

lost in the wilderness

Ok I’m not in the wilderness, but I could be.  Right, I’m not lost either, but just because I know where I am doesn’t mean I’m not lost. If I was an ant wandering around down there amongst the foliage, it would be a wilderness. (perspective)

Especially if I had to find my way home, and back up the tree. Would the rain hamper my progress?  Certainly in a downpour in the truck, when it comes down in sheets, it is very difficult to see, even with the window washers going at full speed.

Picture perfect isn’t what the day is all about.  I guess basically my thoughts are wandering, and tho’ I’m in a familiar place physically, my gray matter is heading for the wilderness, to find some breathing room.

Sometimes it is best, to let life around you, sway and  bend as it may, tomorrow will be another day.  So when you wake, it will be a brand new day.

I knew

45b8fb72417e38a7376d6b4f0be36fd7

I knew I had gone in before

but today, I met with a closed-door

no matter how hard I pushed

I couldnt get in

We encounter daily problems

in similar ways

they just seem to plague our days

yet, if we step back

and take a different tack

we often find we were on the right track

only our approach needed new perspective

we did in fact, know

only our focus was inactive

it is important in life

to stop and allow your mind to chill

your body to relax

so that each day can really begin

brand new.

71 bronco

hey.. wow … need  HUG

gosh, you look like you could use a HUG

Actually I have friends that would be in utterly fantastic bliss to be out there on a beautiful day, sharing their off road experience with friends, and no they aren’t in need of a hug, they are having fun.  Perspective.

7172510-r3l8t8d-650-cute-big-dogs-and-babies-5Awwww now this is a true hug

wrapped in a warm embrace by a friend

relaxing and just sharing bonding time

What, no?  Oh you have allergies, and you can’t be that close to an animal, dog, cat etc. So this wouldn’t be your idea of a nice happy moment…. ahhh…. Perspective

We are all unique in our own ways, and we each and everyone of us goes through life trying to understand our selves and the world around us.  It is when we share our dreams and differences, that we learn about someone else, their culture, their world, in doing so, we broaden our own.

Please come by for tea, the door is always open, careful on the way over, it can get rather steep, but I’m always happy to meet and greet a friend, we can chat and exchange views (smiles), visiting and getting to know you, will be a very special kind of “hug”…sincere sharing/caring… is a hug in itself.  Blessings.

Panda,Kunming,China @wong campion newsroom Reuters

How we adapt and adjust to the changes around us says a lot about how we manage/cope in life.  This Panda was not deterred by a bit of snow.

These roses were spotted by a photographer (@Reuters/Cathal McNaughton) pushing through the snow after a storm in a city cemetery in Londonderry, Northern Ireland, 1.14.15

snow, Pitlochry, Scotland  1.14.15With the snow came promises of a toboggan ride, it was a great adventure, building snow forts, snowmen, skating, in the young there is just the innocence of a new adventure. (Pitlochry, central Scotland 1.14.15) (Reuters,Russell Cheyne)

Even grown ups can have a good time, how we see and perceive the day is how we will proceed.  Our perspective determines the outcome of our day/nights. These men are enjoying their fun in Pyeongchang-gun,South Korea (Getty Images)

This of course is would could be in store if we are not focused and being aware of the road we are traveling during or after a winter storm has descended on us. (Reuters,cathal McNaughton, Ireland)

This is all that could be seen of buildings  and cars during a heavy smog day from an observatory tower in Beijing, I’d heard of the smog there, but not seen just how heavy and dense it is.

Is this how we want to live our lives, do we want to wear face masks when we step outside our doors.   This is how people in Beijing have to protect their lungs during polluted days in their city.

This beautiful picture was taken in Tuscaloosa, Alabama after winter weather plunged the area into a deep freeze and broke records Jan.8.2015. note the clear blue skies, and how the light makes the ice and snow look picture pretty. (Michelle Lepianka Carter/Tuscaloosa News/AP Photo)
