PL Calendar day 31 Don’t hesitate to show kindness to others
Do you ever find yourself hesitating to show kindness to someone? It is when you put your thoughts into action that you can show others what is in your heart.

Back from our short stint into the States. We had damp weather, some rain, not much, but I had a new experience that had me talking to myself and the strangers around me, who were wondering about my state of mind, Although I have seen the signs, as we have driven by other locations in the States, I have never before stopped and gone in.
What I was wishing was that I had thought to whip out my camera and take a picture. I missed the moment, because I was totally awed by the sight of wall to wall cartons of cigarettes. When we drove in, we did see the long and I mean long line of cars, driving up to the “take out” window. Still I was unprepared for the sight that greeted me when I walked in.
I have never seen that many different kinds of cigarettes, it was so well-organized, a whole wall of cigarettes, with people channeled through lines so that they went through designated lines picked out what they wanted, and then followed the queue to the cashier. The lines are well-defined, keeping the buyers between metal type fencing, Once in the lineup, you have no where else to go but follow the buyer in front of you.
It was amazing how efficient they were at getting customers in and out. No being a smoker, it was like watching a foreign film No smoking inside but the air outside was blue with smoke.
Life offers us new experiences when we least expect it. I went in there for information on the Native territory we were on, but was so “blown away” with what I did find… I left, without the needed information, and didn’t care. I had a super “holy smokes artichokes” WOW moment.
I wish I could have given you a visual, wishing won’t make it so… but believe me… I was thrilled…. (ok ok, it doesn’t take much.. I know.. =^_^= ) If you are ever in the NY,Onadaga area… have a look…
Tomorrow is Wordless Wednesday… and yup I did get great picture to share, I liked it enough to holler…stop the truck!!

PL Precept # 1 Life is Art
I knew no one was home
so I took time to roam
explore, and enjoy the decor
she’s had her doors done up out of wood
I turned to the Ford
I admit it had a charm
and, it wasn’t in a barn
this is the babe
who welcomed us in
when these ladies, give with the charm
I can’t help but beam
I raise a glass to the bad ass
owners who track them down
and give them new life
PL Precept #7 Everything exists in relativity
each picture, shows a piece of art, someone made time, to reconstruct, or build
these gems for us to enjoy.
on my part, appreciation, and gratitude is sent out to them for their time and efforts
just reliving my visit brought back a big smile.
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.

Grasp what is most Essential
Have a great day everyone!!
There are times, when no matter which direction we turn,life throws us a curve. We can see these times as tough times, or as opportunities to challenge our creativity. Countless books, and lectures have been given on “how to deal with adversity”.
PL Precept #1 – Life is Art
It really truly is. Each time we’ve driven by this little display in Potsdam, NY, I wonder out loud, what, why, and where, the whole idea came from. This time, we stopped so I could take some pictures. The display has been there for some time, flowers are weather faded, and weeds well established. There is also a similar display in another part of the town. It is a University/College town, so I’m guessing, that it was some kind of project. Whatever, it is most fun and interesting.
Toilets, flush away waste, bath tubs, wash away daily grim. At one time, the display would have been fresh and innovative. Today it is obviously still a source of interest or it wouldn’t be there, taking up such prime real estate. Some day, perhaps I’ll hear what prompted such a display of tongue in cheek creativity. Does anyone out there know?
No matter how tough times get, we all have the potential and possibility to achieve something positive. The whole project here, was about waste being recycled, and what “fun” it is.
