Spring yay!

To walk where no one has walked before

P1000645

I wish, =^_^= but I was the one to make a new trail

down an unused road, that led me to another time

P1000643

a family home, once filled with laughter

now stands silent, waiting

this was not the structure tho’ that had caught my attention

rather I was drawn to a building that called out

to my searching ” eyes”

P1000641

“look, look, see my charm”, I got a picture in full sunlight

but this one with the little building half in the shade

I found had more to say

I sensed this is where the children played

on rainy days, on sunny days

this little structure captured and ignited

their imagination in every way

P1000659

this pretty face

was also part of yesterday =^_^=

It was an amazing day !!!

In PL (Perfect Liberty) we do our best to live each day doing our best to be creative in every way.  Make every day count, rain, snow, sunshine, it doesn’t matter. Do your best every day.

Thursday Doors 3.10.17

door 2 march 9.17

drums beating a steady rhythm

a deep droning chant

accompanied the talking drums

somewhere within the lush vegetation

there would be a path

leading towards the origins

of the mesmerizing communication

behind each door

is a the total sum

of what “Nature/Universe”

has in store for us

find the door

open the door

and walk through

for all you do

each passing day

if look to find the door

meant for you.

Thursday doors – the door

The Door

Inspired this reaction from

one of my dearest of friends..

Is that that darn Avon lady again or is it those people pushing religion.  Don’t answer it!! 
Friends are very special
each one is so unique and so good
at offering us a mirror
or a totally different perspective
to where we are at any given moment
Norm’s – Thursday Doors
is a long time favourite of mine
doors have held interest for me
as long as there has been time
What is it about doors the keeps us
all, so enchanted by their shape
construction, size, and “personalities”
inanimate they may be
but a life of their own
is often found
when we the viewer
chance upon a door that
calls out from its frame
and no way can we  just walk away
a door holds mystery
inspires imagination
today’s door
was indeed inspired by
wall paper
and thoughts of elves
fairies and woodland
gardens where
little “ones” and their
forest friends
enjoy happy days under blue skies
and thriving vegetation
the mossy carpets under foot
a perfect place to play
and while the day away.

voici le moment

au fond de moi, j’en suis certaine

at this moment

I am certain

from deep within

my spirits stirs

I feel the warmth

of recognition

the comfort of knowing

a new day has begun

somewhere near

the sun is bright

even tho’

I am here in the night

God is everywhere

day and night

we are ONE

shades of white

white-banksia-rose-flowers-1s white against a back ground of green

what a lovely picture you’ll see

the fragrance of a flower in bloom

will  touch your senses

with a magical sensory tune

cloud-and-sky

white against a sky of blue

a sigh will escape your lips

as you dream of a place

under tropical skies and

lazy sun drenched afternoons

img_0332

yet white against a sky of gray

can make for a very dull day

the white is still white

but we see it in a totally different way

think about it

how many times

have you looked at someone in a different way

only because

their background

coloured your way of seeing them

img_0158

my sister painted me a hobbit house

sometimes, I think

yeah, this is where I want to stay

lost in a meadow of sheep

where I can while away the day

and at night, turn in for

a fitful sleep.

everyone needs a place to stay

when they need time

away

from a world that can in disarray

snow moment

DSC00122

Snow what a  blessing

from above, crystals

with prisms that catch the light

an art form,

that can  dazzle and delight

bear,brown

it is true, we can’t fall asleep

in plain sight,

enjoying the sun the same way

we can in summer

5a701bd593efe64e15011440fa8e4b83

oh, but other delights await us

and the winter fun can begin

the slops are being groomed

snowshoes  are being readied

I can smell the baking pies

and anticipate the wonder

in the children’s eyes

the    happy smiles

when they fly down a hill

all bundled up, on their first toboggan ride

oh dear.. there is always

an old bear, who wants us to know

winter or not

he will have his time in the sun

truth be told

he is right of course,

no matter the season

there is never a  good reason

to get out and enjoy

the day no matter what

I for one

will wear my new dress

and have fun

Picadilly Theatre

Taken from Wikipedia.. cut and paste

Theatre or theater[1] is a collaborative form of fine art that uses live performers, typically actors or actresses, to present the experience of a real or imagined event before a live audience in a specific place, often a stage. The performers may communicate this experience to the audience through combinations of gesture, speech, song, music, and dance. Elements of art, such as painted scenery and stagecraft such as lighting are used to enhance the physicality, presence and immediacy of the experience.[2] The specific place of the performance is also named by the word “theatre” as derived from the Ancient Greek θέατρον (théatron, “a place for viewing”), itself from θεάομαι (theáomai, “to see”, “to watch”, “to observe”).

The pictures themselves are part  of my collection of places that speak to me.  We have driven by when the doors have been open to air the place.  But, I have not been inside.

p1000565

It sits on a main street, there are houses close by, where people still live.  When I stopped to take the pictures, a walker  walked past, and greetings were shared. There was no concern or interest in my standing there, taking pictures.  Just another “tourist’ taking in the sights.

I have spoken to the lady who owns the building, she operates a small antique and knick knack shop near by.  In her plans, somewhere  down the road, she would like to fix it up and do something with it.  Meanwhile it sits.

Sometimes I feel like my body and mind are like the building.  I am here, I function, just don’t know how brilliantly I’m handling the day.

Today, I was searching through the “arts and crafts” section in a chain Thrift Shop (it is for profit, and gives a big percentage to the Diabetes agency in our area)  I came away with some great finds.. Things that  had I gone to the local “big store” Craft, hobby, or Stationary shops for, would have cost me 3 – 4 times more

It works for me, because over the years, I have worked with these products and purchased them at full price for “work” in a Corporate or Health Care Setting. People pass them on because something newer has come along, name has been changed, and it has a fancier package, and important here… it is marketed to the consumer by Crafting, and Hobby specialists  via You Tube or the company’s own website.

250 envelopes at 2.99 less 30% discount, is more appealing to me, than a box of 100 for 15$ plus taxes.  The drafting paper I got, 18 sheets for 2.99 less 30%  works for me, does the same job as the pad of specialty paper for 24$, and a real find was photo paper, gloss a package of 50 for 50 cents… versus 1 sheet for  89 cents

The relic that I am, had a darn good day.  I am excited about trying my goodies out, just as a theater goer is primed and eager to see a new movie or play. The Picadilly theater still stands,  the  sign above the door, still sits proudly announcing the function of the building. Every time I go by, I will wave, and wish it continued success  that it will go on  standing proud, no matter how the years fade and wear its facade down.
