*Deus Natureza (Maria Aldinria M.Martins)
Obrigado Oshioya-Sama Por me ensinar amar assim. Por ver Deus dentro de mim E em qualquer lugar.
Thank you Oshieoya-sama for teaching me to love, to see God within me and everywhere around.
*Excerpts from God and Nature, sung in church Sunday, (page)
I can harmonize with you with nature and humankind. I am happy living like this, a rich feeling hard to find. Harmonizo-me contigo, com os homens e a natureza. Viendo assim sou feliz E nao ha maior riqueza
With love and blessings, great the world with your smile and presence.
Driving through the take out lane, I saw the fog was lifting. earlier, not even an hour or so, I could see only two car lengths in front of me
I was heading back towards the city now, with each passing mile, the sky got brighter
bright enough, that I thought to stop to take a picture. Usually I am driving by this site during the work day, and the road is just too busy. I may have mentioned that I have been wanting to get a picture before the whole building disappears. It has happened before, I am driving along a road I travel many times a week when suddenly I realize that a building has disappeared.
The world around me is in constant flux. For some reason, the demolition, began at a time that for whatever reason, I missed it. I happened to go to the post office one day (it is across from this location) and when I drove out, it was a “WOW when did that happen???” That was in the fall, and here it is February of the following year, and there it still stands.
I did see an opening in the fence. However, my common sense, held me in check. No hard hat, and not wearing my steel toed footwear. Maybe I’ll get a chance another day. LOL if I were to find rust I would be in 7th heaven.
This adventure took place last week, today, I am looking forward to what’s ahead.
PL Calendar 18 Look Forward to What’s Ahead.
There is no use brooding over the past. Always try to begin each day anew with a fresh outlook.
What a good teaching to start a new week. Hope everyone is enjoying a long week-end, and is revving up for a stunning brand new week.
Shoes from China, to fit a Tonner 16″ doll. Finally a shoe collection I don’t have to wear. simply enjoy. It takes almost a month for them to get here from China, but well worth the wait.
Patience is one of the virtues, that I am continually working on. =^_^=
I know I am not alone in my “enjoyment” of shoes. These are manageable, and I don’t have to wear them….

OK I have no idea, what I was thinking of when I did this, but it happened. Years later, I still don’t know what it was that drew me to put this “idea” together. Knowing I did it, always gave me pause. I thought to simply throw it out, yet it sat in the back garden for some time, a reminder that not everything I do, or come up with is “picture perfect”
At the time, I really liked the idea. The glove, the hand, I’m not sure, but it still might be out back too. We are cleaning up back there, it is time for a change. I know if they are there, it will be time to “let them go”
I remember putting this “character” into the old wood bird house, so he would be out of the elements. It is all overgrown now, but I saw through the branches that he is still there. It would require cutting away half of the evergreen now to get him out… so… he’ll get to stay. Actually maybe it was a she..
The garden guardians have come and gone, they tended and hosted the wildlife that used our land to travel safely through the urban sprawl. There is beauty in all that nature provides, and there is an unseen world around us that some of us see, and other’s don’t. Never-the-less, the world of imagination and fantasy never fails to capture our attention, when we listen to the wind whisper softly through the trees, or hear it howl when it is voicing discontent. This week we’ve heard the heavens bowling in celebration of a summer’s eve. the bowling balls landing with loud thunder as they rolled across the skies.
Even the wooden sprite is peeking out from his curtain of ivy… (this was he, before this summer’s growth) The heavy rains clear the spider webs from his face, and wash the ants away… He’s happy too.
Hmmm when I review our motley crew of garden elves and faeries… they have done such a wonderful job of keeping our land lush, green and safe from urban predators, maybe, yes maybe… I need to be selective and rethink the changes in the garden, I need to remember why they are there. It is not their looks that count, it is their reason for being!

do egg rolls count as calories
only if you admit to having one
what if they are baked
and not fried
really .. would it still be an egg roll
OK, I will go back out to the garden
pretend we never had
no egg roll,
but then, what do I know…
so YOU know
they are homemade
a calorie, will never hide
there is no lying
the real you
will always know
whether you admit to it
bake for 30 minutes
What is this?
A picture gone rogue. Even with the best intentions, there are times, even when we do everything “supposedly” right… We don’t get what we were expecting. Happens.
Do we worry, stress about it.. Of course not, we simply either do it again, or move on to something else.
That works when we are dealing with objects. When we are dealing with another person, or plural, people, redoing something isn’t always easy peasy. In PL, Perfect Liberty, we see each new day, as a new canvas. the possibilities are endless.
I enjoy a good moan and groan, just like anyone else, but it is a moment in time, I move on. that is the beauty of Living in Perfect Liberty (Precept #21) We are given the tools, to help us maneuver the challenges we face on a day-to-day basis.
Perfect Liberty is unique in its way of offering personal guidance to members. We are all so different, with our own personalities and characteristics. Through consultations given by PL ministers members receive personal guidance tailored to their individual situations.
I already know that I plan on a wonderful new week. Each night is about having a good sleep so that I can begin my new “adventure”
Smiles and waves, how you doing today? how has it been so far? Had your morning brew yet? Blessings… have a super grand day, doing whatever it is you need or want to do.
Still revisiting pictures of Sharon Springs. NY while I have my breakfast. Wondering what I’ll find this year when we head out on another road trip. I’m drawn to landscapes with a “story”, at least one that speaks to me. When I take the picture, I’m trying to capture the thoughts, or story line that came to mind when I came across the “scene” Some are just my artistic expression, of a time and space, and others are like visual bookmarks for my “gray matter”
We are all different in how we catalogue information, for me .. I know… I’m visual… my desk always looks like gremlins came in the night and tossed everything looking for hidden treasures. Of course, it is the work of my lazy mind and my easily distracted attention. Smiles sweetly, and looks up with innocent eyes. Of course I know it’s a mess… but it is my mess, and I like it. that is what having one’s own space is all about. =^_^=
Now breakfast – small bowl of steamed rice, small helping of pickled cucumber (Japanese) and one lightly poached egg (omega) on my rice.

To Live is to Express One’s Self
We will each do this in our own unique way. Life will continually present you with new moments of wonder, awe, and surprises. Some you will delight in and other’s may not charm you as much, but each and every one of the moments, are moments we are living.. and part of. It is your choice, to live happy, when challenged, find a new creative way to overcome, to surpass, and go beyond.
