A Thankful Person will grow as an individual    PL Day 21

When you are able to have a thankful attitude you will be blessed with good intuition and more enthusiasm, which will continue to move things in a positive direction.

Thanksgiving service is at 7 pm.  See you all then.


Picture was taken yesterday at beautiful Pansy park in Pembroke, Ontario. I have never seen so many black squirrels in one place.  A step back in time.

in the quiet stillness of the day, I found my way, to a very quiet moment in time. Q

IMG_0657The other day, I drove by a work site, and saw the mounds of earth, with their new growth.  It rocked with me  I loved it.  So much so, that I went back and drove into the construction site, to take pictures.

My very own treasure chest, the dry earth, the cracks, loved it all. I really do marvel at the way nature provides me with such wonders.  actually it is for everyone, but some how I don’t think everyone gets as chuffed up as I do about such things.

To have had a macro lens I would have been up there trying to catch every nook and cranny that took my fancy.

We are all different, we all take in the world around us in our own way.  That is what makes the environment and the populations in it, so intriguing and inspiring.

and we are all unique in our own way.  What bounty, what tremendous source of inspiration … live happy, be happy, learn, grow and pass it on.

Happy Ancestors’ Day everyone.  A month ago today, we had the service for Brian, it will be another couple of days, before he will have been “gone” two months.  Somehow, time has lost a place with me at the moment.  I am in a “temporary/holding” zone.  It is thanks to my wonderful friends, and thoughtful neighbours that I get through each day.

My friends seem to know just when to call or be present, for this I am truly grateful.  On the surface years of wearing a “public” persona,  has stood me well.  At times I feel like I am cast in stone, and watching the world go by, while other times…. the sunlight just quietly misses me, letting me hide in the shade.

I am thankful for who I am today, my world is evolving and changing, I am so appreciative of you my friends, who stand by me, help me in this time of such overwhelming emotions, uncertainty and uncharted tomorrows. Thank you.

Be thankful for who you are today.

You are standing here thanks to your ancestors, your parents and those who have supported you throughout your life.  Show your appreciation, by giving back to the world around you.

Each section represents a challenge or opportunity.  Is there a storyline  here, for me there is.  What about you…

As another year draws to an end, a new one is waiting in the wings.  The above will still be there, waiting to be found.  Every day, something new is added to our personal collage.  Some noticed, some not.  Never-the-less, seen or not, they become part of the puzzle that is “life”

Pictures do tell a story..

Colour riot Saturday

October abstract 5

If you haven’t guessed already, I love October, and the energy that seems to gather and explode in the shops around this time of year. I can’t at this moment in time, over haul our living quarters into a stage set, but I can dream about it. So, some of my time today was wandering the shops and taking pictures of items I’d want to collect and bring home, if this was the right time for me to do so.

October 2

How fun to have this at the back door to greet unsuspecting visitors.

October 3

Could it be the colours, the designs, or just the witching fun.

Back when I was  really keen on redoing the “home” with such colourful and creative items, we had to make them ourselves.  Now, they are all over in the shops and so available.  I love the black, the way it sets off the bright yellows and glowing oranges.

I have been feeling more creative these days, the top picture is my bedtime activity, some people write in journals, I like to paint.  I have art journals, and junk journals, they are everywhere, so when I feel an urge, I can just pick one up and add to it.  Even the act of preparing a page so that it will take paint, or other medium is joyful.

Ripping up a magazine for the splotches of colour that have caught my eye is very relaxing…. then to see it reborn in a totally “MY ” way  is absolutely satisfying.  Same applies to fabric, wool, threads, cord, ribbon, tapes, the possibilities are endless.

The best part of visual expression, is that it is very personal, subjective, and really only needs to be enjoyed by me, myself and I.  If someone else likes it, that is bonus.

Life is what we make it.  There is an artist in all of us. We all choose to express ourselves differently. What is important is that we do so.

When a challenge looms before us.  How we deal with it, shows are creativity.  We are offered so many possibilities during the day, I am always amazed that not every one gets the  feeling of satisfaction at having a full day.

If you are in Canada, you are well on your way to enjoying a long week-end.  I am looking forward to mine.  It is a daunting task, but I am going to try to rearrange my studio/work area.
