There is one thing to say about snow that I really enjoy. As soon as I wake, I can hear the difference, The world (on the street around me) is quiet.
The leaves, and colour that remained on the ground is now. A blanket of white.
Bom dia a todos.Utilize all of your potential!
Utilize todo seu potencial. Don’t hold anything back, Give today and every day your all.
PL calendar day 16… Always approach things with full enthusiasm and energy. Then things will develop in a new direction.

We leave a trace everywhere we go, it seems impossible to enjoy without some how taking or leaving something behind. Some harmonize better than others. A wound may heal physically, but it will never be the same, ever. Life does go on, we are blessed in ways that we will never truly fully understand, Nature will soon blanket the scarred and littered land around us with the beauty of fallen snow.
The fairy tale world of a winter wonderland, will lull the weary, allowing for time to recharge and erase haunting memories. Right now she is blessing us with a wonder of colours and vistas of raw umber and burnt sienna interwoven with deep golden hues interspersed with rusty reds,
Today, I am the birch, patiently waiting for you to drive by, tires rolling across the asphalt, and the quiet to reappear till the next motorized vehicle comes along. Please do not be offended, it is simply time for us to hibernate.,
Bom Dia, Saturday has rolled around again. I thought to share some of the colours I have captured in the last few weeks of roaming
Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. I couldn’t resist driving over to the other end of the parking lot to discover the myriad of colours I could see.
I am sure everyone was wondering what this elderly lady was doing behind the liquor store with her camera. But I was having fun, and isn’t that what life is all about.
The other day I was trying to explain that I am not a photographer, but an artist that uses her camera to capture textures and moods, that I can reuse, recycle into one of my expressions. Whatever right.. it is my fun, my hobby, and I love it. Just like I enjoyed trekking the harvested cranberry fields the other day in the rain.
Theses are trash bins I found in Chinatown the other day. My son and I had a philosophical conversation last night about life. It is always interesting to listen and learn from someone who has a different perspective on life. We take turns in being the grown up. LOL today’s PL Calendar, says it all.
Day 27 Put all your efforts into the NOW. You can only do your best right this moment, not in the past, not n the future, but now.

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
The 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.

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.
I never know if I will be overwhelmed with an emotion, or find myself wrapped in a cloak of silence.
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.
PL day 11
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.
