These two pictures were taken by award winning photographer Darrell Larose. You see more of Darrell’s work by visiting his Instagram account, DarrellLarosePhoto. I am new to his work, & very taken by his pictures of the wildlife he encounters. You know I tried to get a picture of the muskrat I saw at Sarsaparilla Trail, to no avail. When I saw Darrell’s photos of a muskrat I asked permission to share them. (his pictures were taken in the west end at Mud Lake) so its not the save critter.. but just as cute.
If I’m learning anything these past months, its that the dedicated photographers out there that capture the wonderful wild life that is around .. are not only patient and skilled at their craft, they will occasionally share . From my experience they are also willing to help a beginner =^_^=
Enjoy… the one on the ferry is a fun capture, how often have I ridden a ferry, but not thought of taking a picture of the doors. I know Chris was focused on the Zoo advertisment… but HEY I’m a door chaser.
I’m usually easy going, I do have an opinion, when asked, I have always done my best to be honest with my reply, if I disagree, I tend to soften my stand, unless it is something that really is important.
Today I was asked about whether or not our church should open for Thanksgiving service on the 21st. Contrary to what was said by someone who does not come to the church at all, I feel it should be open for those who would like to attend, observing of course, social distancing, and the wearing of a face mask. Because our members are scattered all across Canada, the actual numbers who can or would physically attend has always been low in number.
Those of us who find comfort in being in the church, some have been with the church since it was built. (the new one).. It is our home, our sanctuary . PL has always been unique in how it offers personal guidance responding to problems of our every day lives.
It is through consultations given by PL ministers, the personal guidance tailored to the individual character and situation that makes PL such a bonding experience.
That the question even needed to be asked.. (.. WOW..) Needless to say, I disagreed with the statement that we stay closed, … and I spoke out. These past weeks have made me realize, that too often, doors are closed, and the support that should be available is withdrawn.
Ministers are front line care givers. Not only the physical body needs to be addressed, now more then ever, we need to feed, heal and nurture our spirits.
The above picture immediately reminded of a dream I had years ago. Yes the picture took me back to a hike that my Mother had organized when she was a leader in CGIT, (Canadian Girls in Training) My Dad had come with us to share in the experience and take pictures. Taking pictures was his passion, this picture is much like the interpretation of the moment, he would have shared,
Canadian Girls in Training, or CGIT, is a church-based program for girls and young women aged 11–17 throughout Canada. Girls who join the CGIT vow to “Cherish Health, Seek Truth, Know God, Serve Others and thus, with [Jesus’] help, become the girl God would have me be”. (Wikipedia)
My education began at an early age (to be of service, and dedicate my life to helping and being there for others) I don’t know why Dave chose to publish the photo in these muted tones, but he did and for me it was breath taking. I wanted to share this picture of his for two reason.. one because I found it to be so touching and poignant. And 2, I feel it will “talk” to others in a way, words can’t.
Good or Bad it is your mirror. Sincere expressions invite good results, but insincere expressions can lead to unexpected trouble.

The hike was in the Gatineau Hills, Quebec, Canada, the photo Dave took was in Pennsylvania. USA =^_^=
Appreciate the colourful personalities of the people around you and enjoy their uniqueness to the fullest
Life’s journey is never a super highway, it is full of unexpected stops, and detours along the way. Remember it is not the destination, but the journey itself that is rewarding. When we are faced with the unexpected, stop and appreciate the diversion, it is happening for a reason. The details might not be clear to you at the time, but if we believe, and have faith, God/Universe will see us through. Love is unconditional. Love sometimes is having to be different. Let Go… Let God.
Tranquility is where we find it. We recognize the moment that the world around us is blanketed with the right harmony of visual, audio and sensual input.
This view of the world through the lens of Dr.Enz (PA) a musician who has taken up photography as another way of expressing his passions. I have permission to share some of his works with you. Hope you enjoy. The soft greens and the reflection in the water came together beautifully. For me, it was/is visual music.
Not everyone will share my pleasure, and that is what makes life interesting.
Appreciate the differences in others, you don’t have to agree, but you can perhaps learn to understand.
