when white is the colour of the day

choice – spend time outside or inside
snow is pristine and beautiful against the contrasting bark on the trees

I wrote this back in the late 70’s… found it today while looking for something else.

Freedom is – a state of mind

Through each moment of the day

We experience, joy, happiness, sadness, anticipation and frustrations.

Emotions, are part of our core

With each breath comes an emotion

How we cope and accept, encounters and interactions with others…

is how much freedom we allow ourselves …

in our journey through life.

To see fragments of life shatter before you

in a glittering array – transcending joy

a new dawning.

thoughts taken from a page of a book I’d stored visual artwork and thoughts such as the above.

It is interesting to see how I captured my thoughts then, & to reflect on them, I think I still see life much the same way… will have to give it more thought though,

I like the contrast of the snow and the quiet moment of reflection in my beach house .. in the virtual world, the weather is always comfortable no matter where we visit, or the terrain we travel. In this world of constant change, we are gifted with new adventures and back drops for our “stories” and “travels”… the newness, the constant discoveries of what IS… makes for a world of wonder. Ours to discover !!!

Thursday’s magic

To say it was was a picture perfect day, would be an understatement. It was magical. The trees were bowed under with the snow .. I was glad I had made the effort to get to the feeders. It was rather fun to put my hood up and then reach up and shake snow off the heavily laden branches so that the tree could raise itself up again. I managed some of the branches, not all, a few were just too heavily burdened, and too high for me to get at where I could shake and be productive.

I did get to clear the feeders tho’ and replace seed in the ones that had been depleted … It was interesting that a few of the birds found I was being a tad too slow and almost shoved me along or landed on my arm and tried to reach down and take the seeds/nuts from my container. The area where I sit was in an area that was covered by heavily snow laden branches.. I cleared the space and sat anyway, I simply put up my hood so that the wet snow wouldn’t cause a chill on my head. I’m surprising even myself at how I am adapting to being otudoors. I told one reader, I am thinking I’d like to have a folding lawn chair in the car, so I can just sit and bask in the warmth of the sun… away from the feeders.. but where I can still hear them chatting away, squabbling or just being cheerful. Why not. Will have to hunt one up.

Let’s find the joy in everything. are you looking for things to complain about? Let’s change our perspective and live a cheerful and joyful life.

Nature in abstract

I have been going often enough now.. they don’t fly away when I am working around the feeders, they don’t get chummy, but they do stay where I can get a good look at them. I’m close enough that I can see that each one of them has its own unique colour pattern, subtle, never-the-less some have more brilliant yellow, some more mustard colour, there is even softer shades of the golden hues. The contrasting black can be like an ebony while a few have more of a charcoal black, then of course there is the blinding white that stands out so dramatically.

This was my morning visit. After I pruned back broken twigs and branches that were in the way, and filled the feeders that needed tending to. I just stood there, letting them come and go, fly by, settle and eat. It was fascinating to see them at such a close range. It is a wonderful feeling to know that I’ve been able to gain their trust enough that they allow me to be so close.

The forest floor is covered in an array of shapes of all sizes, the snow that blankets the fallen timber and dead branches makes for natural abstract visuals. I come away feeling very pampered that I have been able to enjoy not only the fresh air, and clear blue skies, but the company of active birds, squirrels and ….. the odd human that wanders past .. heading out on one of the trails.

I must ask next time I see one of the photographers, where all the cawing and squawking is coming from that I hear off in the distance. Or… maybe.. just maybe, one day I’ll take the walking poles and head out for a stroll. So much to look forward to.

Listen carefully and speak clearly. A good relationship starts from truly understanding each other.

photo art, a dark dream

it was a dream…………….. a black dream………………….

I had gone to a club called Dark Alley Blues.

No one was there, except the washed out and passed out derelicts in the darkened alleys

Had I gotten the date and times wrong

There were no identifiable sounds coming from the club

Doors were barred, windows dark

my mind caught the stark neon light that flashed off and on

I wanted to escape, to run away,

Why wasn’t I waking up, what held me back

Can I trust the rabbit who came out of the dark to hold my hand?

There is always a solution. Always believe that there is a solution to any problem that comes your way, and work with conviction to solve it.

I felt totally out of place. Somehow I knew this was not where I should be….

But… life happens that way…. it is what it is..

Don’t think “I Can’t” from the start. Begin by taking the first step, then you’ll be able to see what comes next and a path will open.

When I first saw this “capture” the face that looked back at me .. with its hands in protection or exclamation mode, said ” What!” “you’re kidding”… since then I have not been able to see anything else but that one personality. Right hand up, covering the mouth, and the left grasping the elbow of the R. arm.

The beauty of chasing the forest “personalities” is that depending on the daylight, shadows and the season, they are not seen. I don’t think anyone else will see them but you. IF you see them at all.

believe

There will always be a way. If you persist and be creative without giving up, you will find solutions that you had ot considered before.

days like today, when the heat blankets the body and all else around you.  Moving take concentrated effort. Blah.  Only on such days, do I wish for a small section of water to sit submerged in a shallow area where there is a bit of a shade. and the water is lapping gently all around me, cooling and refreshing.

IMG_20190704_113333_resized_20190704_054308823

of course #1 choice, is to stay inside, where I have air climate control.  No need to think about getting out of the water, getting dry, and finding my way back to the car.  This too shall pass.

Happy week-end everyone.  I trust wherever you are in, you are enjoying a wonderful memory making day.
