dreams

f4af79db6c796300f3bc58ba0f756dfcThe last few nights I have had the strangest dreams..  Well .. really if I think about it, they are not all that strange, the themes in most of my dreams are multi-coloured and always, I seem to be drifting from one “act” to another…usually I’m in the same locations, but the back drops are different.  Players change in appearances but in the long and short of it all, they bear similar personalities to the actors I’ve interacted with in the past.

I found this picture in my files, and thought it appropriate for this post.  The colours are cheerful, however there is something about the picture that although I like various aspects of it.. For me, the total doesn’t really pull together properly.  And that, dear reader, is what I am “feeling” this morning.  My dream, my recollection, the moment, etc. is OK, but there is a BUT.

Ever happen to you, can you relate.  It is Tuesday after all, not Thursdays when I usually like to participate in Norm’s Thursday doors. link to Thursday Doors

What else to do but go forward with the day and see what transpires. Exciting eh~!

wandering

9.25 SL_001

sometimes,

we wander to the right

but get tempted to venture

to the left

sometimes

we wander right into the fire

where there is nothing to do

but close our eyes

nice and tight

till our thoughts

wander back into the light

only we ourselves can define our reality

wherever you wander,

you are NEVER alone

Down Under -Thursday Doors

down under by Shirley Keen

Isn’t this just the greatest natural doorway into a small paradise.  Maybe not what we usually call a door, it does not open and close, but, Wow, I have to say congratulations Shirley, this is a stunning piece,.  I look through and see so much that captures my imagination.

A lazy bear, resting in the afternoon sun.  His nose pointing towards the sky as he breathes in the clean fresh air.  The water so calm and blue, I wonder if I’d dare to wander through the doorway in case I am tempted to dip a toe in the sparkling water or like the bear become part of the amazing natural wonder that is calling to my senses. I want to find a place, sit and while away the rest of the day.

Dreams and magical vistas await us every day.  It is up to us, to make time to go out and play.

lost in the wilderness

IMG_0671

Ok I’m not in the wilderness, but I could be.  Right, I’m not lost either, but just because I know where I am doesn’t mean I’m not lost. If I was an ant wandering around down there amongst the foliage, it would be a wilderness. (perspective)

Especially if I had to find my way home, and back up the tree. Would the rain hamper my progress?  Certainly in a downpour in the truck, when it comes down in sheets, it is very difficult to see, even with the window washers going at full speed.

Picture perfect isn’t what the day is all about.  I guess basically my thoughts are wandering, and tho’ I’m in a familiar place physically, my gray matter is heading for the wilderness, to find some breathing room.

Sometimes it is best, to let life around you, sway and  bend as it may, tomorrow will be another day.  So when you wake, it will be a brand new day.

Namaste     –      Oyashikiri
