new arrival

This little lass arrived on my doorstep yesterday, all the way from China. She was tired and a little weary from the long voyage, and the environment she found herself in was vastly different from what she has known. After much thought, we decided her name would be Yumi. I have a young friend in Japan that she reminds me of… She graciously accepted her new name. It pleased her, since previous to arriving here, she was simply a stock number. I will let her adapt to her new environment before I try to involve myself in her life.

Today is the 31st, there will be celebrations , depending on the age group, I suspect it will be a busy evening, with a lot of fun and frolicking. Energy levels are very high all over the world where “witches and warlocks” play. How well do you know your neighbours. =^_^= I myself, will meditate and pray for all to be safe in their enjoyment of the night.

I loved this piece when I did it, October 2015, now I can’t even recall what had inspired me, or what I did with it. Life is in constant motion, what we feel is so thrilling and important today, in time, the intensity fades, and unless we learn to let go, we will be facing frustrations and hurt. Places, people, everything changes.

In PL (Perfect Liberty) we are given the tools and the encouragement to live our lives in a way that allows us flexibility, and teaches how to adapt to changes.

Don’t look for excuses to say “I can’t”. If you let your situation control you or you fear failure, you will not be able to feel enthusiastic about anything.Take on any project with a firm conviction that you will succeed.

Another Saturday =^_^=

How many Saturdays can one have in a week. Obviously I can. When you are retired anything is possible.

Look at the marvelous day we had. The colour palette was subtle and vibrant at the same time. Truly amazing to be out in the majesty of the day.

Today being the 21st of the month we will be celebrating Thanksgiving with our PL service at 7 PM. Today’s calendar message..

Let’s be thankful for everything we have right now “Now” is an accumulation of every moment leading up to it, and everything that continues to progress and develop to become”now”. Be Thankful for everything.

Oyashikiri

Please take a moment in silent prayer today for loved ones who have done their time on earth, and are now going “home”…. Thank you.

Life is

Iife is

Yesterday I was jolted out of my musings by an artist(Seth Apter) I was unfamiliar with. I had received an e-mail about 3 days of workshops with him in the fall. Attending workshops is not something I am apt to do, but I am a regular at this particular store, and have found that the owner there, keeps up with the latest in the mixed media news.  The store is a treasure for art/craft supplies.

I was sufficiently motivated, that I dressed and headed out the door in search of a stamp that he had used, and to research his embossing powders.  My first stop was about 50-60 miles from my place.  Heading out towards Montreal I suddenly realized that on my left in the lanes coming into the city,  were not a few dozen but miles of cars bumper to bumper inching their way into the city.  Commuters, people who live on the edges of the city trying to get to work,

It was jaw dropping to see so many people patiently making their way west.  As far as the eye could see, coming along the major roadways every vehicle one can imagine.  I am retired, and know to leave my house after the “rush hour”  It was somewhere between 8:30 and 9.  I gave thanks right there and then, that I am now in a different phase of “life”. It was very appropriate when I saw this little sign in the Dollar Tree, when I dropped in.

Please dear reader, if you, like I, have the freedom to explore, discover and live a less structured day to day.  Say a prayer of appreciation today, thank the Universe for your life as it is now, and include prayers of support and energy for those who live along beside us, coping and dealing with the phases in their lives that is their “moment in time”

Day 8 of the PL calendar

First accept Everything

Life is filled with moments, sometimes happy and at times inconvenient.  It is important to first accept every situation as it occurs and try to accept and understand it for what it is.

Bom dia!! Greetings on another bright sunny morning.  Mid week already, where doe the time go.

It was  fantastic day yesterday to travel the roads, the trees along the highway are starting to bud, I could feel the anticipation in every direction.  The water levels were still very high as we approached the West Island (heading into Montreal).  We observed that the water was still half way up the trees that would usually be above the water line on dry land.

Please take time to remember that tho’ the weather is currently dry, there are thousands who have suffered severe water damage over the last weeks, and need our prayers.  Not just a few, but many people have lost year of memories and accumulated treasures, and are finding themselves in a place of sadness with weeks and months of rebuilding and hard work just to regain a sense of “normal”

Life is a succession of lessons, which must be lived to be understood– Ralph Waldo Emerson

accidents happen

IMGP2660 Nick

Sorry everyone   I didn’t get to church today, was busy being hit by a car, and dealing with having to do an accident report, and getting my car towed etc.

PL calendar day 31    Someone who is mentally prepared is strong

Even when things look grim, if you take on the situation with determination, you will be able to make a fresh start with a positive outlook.

Sometimes, things happen that are unexpected.  Living in the NOW, you deal with it and move on.

PL Precept #7    Everything exists in relativity

PL Precept # 4  Being annoyed limits your expression

I won’t refuse positive energy being sent this way.  =^_^=   Thanks!!

lost and found

butterfly huawei1

If I were an object, I would say I was lost

if broken I would hope to be fixed

found by a stranger, I hope they would rescue me

but, \I am not an object,

I am not lost, nor am I broken

So I don’t need to be found, or fixed

Life is not playing a trick on me

I am in mourning, lost in my own thoughts

realizing that I am in uncharted territory

like a butterfly I am buffeted by the wind

there is no place to hide

on the outside I shimmer and shine

while inside I dip and dive

from the sublime to mediocre moments

while I wait for the  painful reality of now

becomes tomorrow

and another day.

I miss what was

no more no less

Q


Do I feel stressed, no, but tonight I am sad, in May it will be a year since my husband passed…I am overwhelmed at times, at just how much awareness I have of how love is a blessing in all its forms. Thank you my dearest friends, when you reach out, it is a balm and a reminder that love is Universal – You are appreciated and fill my heart with gratitude.  I love you!

PL Precept # 11 Always be with God
