pass it along

Remain true to yourself. Where do you stand on an issue? Always strive to get the clearest picture possible, and then do not be afraid to express your true feelings.

acceptance

storms happen,
at the time, we deal with it,
acceptance is how we move on

Tell yourself “things Happen” Even if something is inconvenient, once you accept it, you’ll be able to move onto the next step.

Perfect Liberty 2021.8

Once something happens it can’t be undone, nor should it be forgotten, we learn from our mistakes, our past choices may have given us unpleasant results. It is by accepting what it, that we can look at the situation with fresh eyes, then move towards positive resolutions.

Embrace the new day, Avoid being trapped in a mindset. Free your mind to consider other possibilities.

Top photo I took during a big ice storm we had in 2009, yes there was a lot of damage, that was then, this is now. WE (the community, cities/towns) cleaned up, we all moved on.

It’s here!

big fluffy white snow

Finally the snow lovers who were waiting to put on their snowshoes, and X-country skis can snap them on and glide out over the trails. The parking lot was full .. families with children all decked out for their adventure were preparing to hit the trail. I got there a little later, so the feeders were in need of topping up, and I had diners ready to partake as soon as the goodies got deposited. I was thrilled to see several blue jays making ready to swoop down to feast. Guess who had a battery failure… yup.. red light went on.. camera closed up. Kamuwaza! Skies were bright and blue too.

Smile and the world smiles with you.

Be a person who can say “I like it”. Find what moves you the most and express your appreciation.

Always think that “everything will work out”. when you allow yourself to be pessimistic, your thoughts and actions become sluggish. Approach everything optimistically without hesitating.

NCC trail #22

Everywhere, under, in and around the trees, branches, rocks, there was a variety of birds.. and squirrels, there had to have been a “zillion” of them, grays, beige, rusty, tiny, wee ones, medium size, they were so busy gathering seeds and then running to hide them, they ran across your path, behind you, and unless you actually advanced towards them, you were ignored. People sat on fallen logs, benches like the one above, big boulder rocks strategically placed… human visitors have made small wooden shelters almost like teepees under the protection of big evergreens around the trunks of deciduous trees.

The forest floor looks quiet, but just before I stopped to capture the moment, there had been at least 5 squirrels playing hide and seek in this section of the woodlands. next This bird was being camera shy, I did get another picture of her, but this is the one I thought was sooo cute.

She positioned herself behind the branch, but I could still see her looking at me, watching to see what I would do, what direction I would go.

Today I visited the NCC Sarsaparilla Trail https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1GCEA_enCA880CA880&sxsrf=ALeKk00YgyhdKFyantIpFJr4phjcfbZiSw:1609457695037&q=Sarsaparilla+Trail&stick=H4sIAAAAAAAAAONgecR4hJFb4OWPe8JSuxgnrTl5jXEzIxdXcEZ-uWteSWZJpVAAFxuUpcIlKMWrn65vaJhkZpyck11ersEgxc-FKiSloMTFW76HQVr04JMzl7SEONcn_2zL-nfWR9DnybPuHWwCOUrBRu67Lk07x-YoyAAEn6oCHaQ0tYS42D2LffKTE3MENxjXfl3oX26vJczFEZJYkZ-Xn1spyPDzf_23_-_tlTg5Qbpeley212Jo2rfiEBsLB6MAA88iVqHgxKLixILEosycnESFkKLEzBwAbXu9JN8AAAA&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjC6cWRsfntAhWlnOAKHTNiDKoQ6RMwGXoECBUQAg&biw=1280&bih=711

Dec 30

My friend had enough. We were getting along swimmingly, then people started to gather, ohhhing and ahhhing and in a huff, he just turned and walked away.

New encounters can help you change. Be up for anything, even if it’s out of your comfort zone. This is a chance for you to improve yourself as a human being.

Perfect Liberty, 2020.30

I was going to delete the last picture, but then, it was what it was… he/she simply after being happy posing, just turned and left. Like us, birds know when they have had enough of “people”.. If ever you have occasion to see the program Nova on your telly, there is a whole segment devoted to the “bird brain”. I watched fascinated as birds worked out how to get food using “tools” or by observation and then working out how to get what they wanted. They have memories! Researchers have been able to prove, that some birds will pass on information to their offspring or others in their “group”… so that years later, when that bird is not around, other birds will have knowledge learned from that original bird’s experience.

Smile… tomorrow is the last day of year 2020. You ready?

12.9 Enjoy the moment

while you wait

Enjoy the moment while you wait… Things come about when they are meant to happen, Think of what you can do for the time being, and don’t rush the outcome.

quiet comfort

You might want to make the bed… but I’m comfortable
try it, you might like it

Habit is.. get out of bed. Make it.. Someone had a different idea, after her morning outing, she decided she hadn’t finished with her “bedtime”. I had to leave to get to church. Did she get to stay on the bed, or was it made before I left?

The key to solving problems is within you. the problems that appear before you can surely be solved. give it your best effort, and the answers will come to you as long as you remain strong in your conviction that all will turn out well.

a quiet reflection

allow your heart to mend

we sometimes don’t realize just how “busy” we are… or how “noisy” our mind can be.

I awoke to the white sounds around me, gentle, steady, familiar, yet constant and comforting. Still, only in sleep do they disappear from my conscious awareness, to be replaced by the chatter of unknown voices, electronic media, and traffic during the day when I am away from home.

Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision for the limits of the word

Arthur Schopenhauer

The search for God is the riding around on an ox, hunting for the ox.

Buddhist proverb

Today I will think about what is important in my life. Beginning with gratitude for now. YOU are part of my now, for this I am so blessed.

silence that wasn’t

trees all around me, standing waiting
the trees filled the woodland

from the pictures, all looks stark and bare – however that is not what was, what could not be capture in the frame, were the sounds of children laughing, crying out in glee at their discoveries. The happy songs of the chickadees that were swooping and landing with graceful delight at the offered treats.

I captured the trees in the late autumn wardrobes, as they patiently waited for the forecasted snow. There were people all around, dressed for the November chill, colourful jackets and scarves could be seen dotting the skyline as they emerged from their cars in the parking lot some yards away.

It was a happy day, everyone knew what was coming this way. You could feel the icy fingers of the teasing taunting wind… oh yes… snow would be here later that day.*

One should never assume that what you see at first glance, is what IS.

It is easy to misinterpret the situation and jump to conclusions. Always have a humble attitude and double check to make sure.

Perfect Liberty 2020.13

Be easy going and live your life cheerfully and flexibly. Strong emotions can be the cause of various troubles. Always strive to have a cheerful and calm state of mind.
