no tropical blues,
just simple flowing waves,
happily rolling in to cool
on a hot humid day
when no one wants to come out to play
it is just one of those days =^_^=
PL calendar day 21 – Let’s be thankful for everything we have rght now
Now is an accuulation of every moment leading up to it and everything that continues to progress and develop to become NOW. Be thankful for everything.
oh hello, almost missed you
I felt your stillness
it drew me back to you
sometimes in life,
this is something we need to do too
yet for reasons, beyond comprehension
we keep racing ahead
then wonder how in the world
we find ourselves in over our heads
thank you.. for reminding me
to stop and simply BE
Welcome to PL where your environment and the things that happen in front of you are all materials for your self expression and learning =^_^=
Good afternoon everyone…
Bright and early I too myself off to the cemetery to cut back the evergreens that I planted there some 30 years ago. I had intended to take a before picture, but by the time I arrived at the cemetery the heat of the day was already beginning to show itself. Shy flower that I am… I went over, pulled the weeds, and gathered up the dead leaves for the mulch bag with a determined dedication of purpose.
How is your day so far? The hot weather is to continue on here for the rest of the week. Good time to stay indoors and work on projects in my studio.
I have had many ideas these past weeks, but not had the chance to get started. Today is the day.
How to live an Artistic life...
The PL Principles(21)are the practical guidelines for our daily lives. As PL members they assist us in practicing the PL Precepts (21) The 21 Principles are specific guidelines on how to live the PL Way (an artistic life) and teach us how to reach a positive state of mind, so that we can express ourselves more harmoniously and joyfully
Principle #14 I will not have a mind to be lazy. I will not have complaints while working, nor be overly concerned and complain about others.
Reminder, Ancestors day, July 11th. service will be at 10 a.m.

Door lovers, I cannot tell you the joy I felt when I looked into a jewelry case, and saw this brooch. Pewter.
I drove food up to the food bank some 30, 40 miles from home. I always wander around a bit and try to find something that catches my eye in their “boutique” or “home decor etc”…. this time… I felt truly rewarded. A pewter door, brooch. YaHOOOOO

Fishing, although I don’t fish, is something I think would be a quiet, comtemplative type of activity. I have seen pictures of people kayaking along shorelines, alone, silently cutting through the water, seeing the lake, river, from a totally different angle. If fishing, is there really a need to catch or “hook up” with a fish, or is it the very activity itself.
My son an avid kayaker, loves to fish. Not to bring the outdoors home, but to communicate with nature in his comfort zone. The water is still cold, we have not had any seasonally warm temperatures..yet already he has been in swimming.
IF I had a bucket list, a lazy drift in a kayak would be in the top twenty. =^_^=
PL Calendar day 15 Live with firm determination, thinking that “this will turn out for the best”
Everything in this world progresses and develops. Always be positive, knowing that everything will turn out for the best.
PS I don’t swim (son’s kayaks)
