Thursday doors

Thursday doors, today the flavour is from Perth, Ontario.  A quiet, picturesque little town about an hours drive from Ottawa.

PL calendar day 6    Past,, present or future, always remember to be sincere and honest.  At any time, the place where you  are standing at that moment is the stage upon which you must express yourself.  At each moment in time there is sure to be a way to express yourself in relation your your position or status.

pick a door, any door, they all lead somewhere

and some are already open.  Interesting that altho’ this door was open, and on a main street, I would not have just gone in.  Without knowing more about it, I would have knocked or taken a good look inside from the street, before entering..

Enjoy another Thursday, exploring  more doors.

Signs

PL Precept # 15  All is a mirror

Happy Tuesday everyone

Treasures found yesterday, wonderful bricks, a sign with history, and a set of doors to a root cellar.

Does anyone know what these doors are called?  I want to say trap doors, but.. I am not sure?  I found wonderful doors, but will save them for Norm’s Thursday Doors.

It was misting off and on, practically all day but that didn’t stop us from enjoying ourselves.  I have this lovely friend who I can always count on to get in touch at the last moment and suggest a road trip. Whooo hoooo out of the blue, we took off for an adventure that led us to a wonderful tea room in Perth, Ontario. We really  did well, we got there early enough to get a table at the lace curtained table where we could enjoy the street traffic on Perth’s main street at the noon hour.

I didn’t think of it, or I would have taken pictures of the delicate china our lunch was served on, Bonnie had a fancy tea, while I stayed with my ice water..  We both tried the Thai soup, while Bonnie had a sandwich I had a wrap, all delicious. YES we both indulged in dessert. Uh huh, not telling, calories were not counted.  Address will be shown below.

Doing something ..just because… can be a wonderful way to enjoy a mini vacation when none was planned.

Happiness is something that comes from within.  Doing something that brings smiles and a lot of chuckling is a super way to make a dull weather day, a whole lot of fun.  Good food, and great company Whoooo hoooo Katchoo.. =^_^=

When we live a life of “art” it does not only encompass you, but it affects the multitude of people around you.  When we express our artistic ideas, and put them into action, if it pleases others, as well as ourselves, we are on the road towards a more peaceful  existence.

DSC00208By now you know that I love to sometimes just drive, and let the road take me to wherever it leads.  I don’t mind taking a turn I’ve never taken before, or even stop on a side street, just to feel that ambiance of the area I am in,  It is interesting that when out, I can chit-chat and happily chatter away with total strangers. yet when I come home, shut the door to the outside, I can do a total 360 degrees.  Turn off the phones, and just bury myself in the quiet of the creative happenings in my studio/office.

photos taken in Perth, Ontario,Canada

a leap of faith

DSC00200

There is such beauty and grace

when a horse and rider

take flight and together

mount the challenge

and conquer the moment

DSC00204

the moment didn’t just happen

the rider and the horse

trained and trained

both were ready for the challenge

they both faced

and when the time came

they flew as one

that moment shared

DSC00205

that bond, that connection

once forged

is like the nature that surrounds us

it will flow and ebb

but it will never end

faith,

when one believes

new experiences

always open up

begin each day with faith

that all your experiences in life

will carry you through

whatever comes your way

Namaste        –        Oyashikiri
