being YOU

Remember the saying, “the glass is either half full” or “the glass is half empty”  Is this fellow walking on the bottom, or is he coming up for air.  Some days it is hard to tell, if its a good day, or we are just used to the “ambience” and tempo.

“I am so busy” I heard someone say, ” I just can’t get anything done”

I would wonder, then what have they been doing that they are so busy. If we are focused on the moment, then each moment we live through, is an accomplishment.  When we go out to lunch, after we have had our lunch, didn’t we accomplish what we set out to do. We ate lunch.  We actually “do” things all day.  Is it that we don’t acknowledge our accomplishments, that we are always looking ahead, and not satisfied with the present?

Have I been listening to too much Pi.   Unless you have heard of the book, seen the film or listened to the CD  you might not recognize my reference.  That’s OK, my musing can be confusing.  Life of Pi

PL calendar day 20    You are YOU, Others are Others

You have your own way of doing things, and others have their way of doing things. Don’t worry about what other people will say.  Simply take care of the task at hand.

Can you believe we are already mid month.  Please have yourself a grand day tomorrow.  Enjoy it to the fullest.  Make each moment count.  A moment wasted on negative energy, is a moment you are not smiling.  Happiness makes for a great day.

When you smile, others will too.

au soleil – in the sunshine

huntsman spider in australia.

A spider will play, the warm sun fondly warming his legs as he feels his way along the path he is on.  A beautiful day for a stroll, I’m sure he is focused on his search  for his catch of the day. Yet he will be ever vigilant of the world around him.  Of course, realize that it will be from his perspective.

When we are out and about on a sunny day, do we focus on the moment or the day ahead.  I was myself not focused on my day, only on the moment, when a friend knocked on my door, saying, “come out and play”  Left on my own, I would have had a boring day. Sure I would have gotten things done, but having a friend to share some time with changed the whole “colour” of my day.  Not that we did something extra ordinary in a way that would win us, ooohs and aaahhhs…. but, it was an absolutely different and wonderful day, because it was shared with a friend.  So for ME, it was a fantabulous day..

How many times have I used the word =day=   hmmm doesn’t matter this is not a literary piece, it’s a shout out.. saying ” YAY” today was a good day!

What a nice way to enjoy such an interlude in the middle of the week.

Make times my friends to do something that makes you smile. Don’t squander all your day, doing the mundane.

Jai eu beaucoup de Plaisir, I had a lot of fun “living” today.


no goblins or ghouls, I hope this “leaves” you with a smile.  Happy Thursday…

Wordless Wednesday


The attraction just happened

it was a piece in the ground,  we needed to dig out..

took hours to break and dig it up

when I saw it, I couldn’t let it go

it now stands in the garden

I’ll enjoy it all year round.


Thursday Doors 2.2.17


I’ve always enjoyed driving by this building, on this particular day, I was drawn to it, the sky behind, the sprinkle of snow…. it was eye-catching.  It has a practical use I’m sure, never-the-less it was “king for the day” in my day of photo possibilities.

A moment in time capture in a lens, without the surrounding buildings, or traffic on the roads, it could be on a desolate patch of land, in an abandoned airport..  Loved it.. Hope you find it stirs your imaginations too.

Happy Thursday everyone… PL Precept # 2  To Live is to Express One’s Self
