we wander to the right

but get tempted to venture

to the left

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

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


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.

he shoots, he scores

Even if we are not hockey fans, at some time in our lives we have seen, heard or even gone to a game.  If it wasn’t or isn’t hockey it could be some other sport, soccer, baseball, there are a lot of people who are enthusiastic fans.

In hockey, like in soccer, there is a goal keeper, or tender. obviously there are other positions, but it is the goal tenders that I seem to have a special interest in.  they function differently than the other players, and their training and  skills sets are honed in a different way.  There powers of observations tend to include a lot of mental agility that they spend hours developing moves to instinctively kick in with what computes with their visual intake.  I can watch a good goalie in action and be totally mesmerized by their performance. (soccer since this is what I have watched the most of)… now I have an interest in a Penguin player, Matthew Murray who has made 47 saves to lead the Penguins in a 3-2- victory against the Capitals, giving Pittsburgh a 2-1 series lead.

I know it takes a TEAM to win a game, not just one player, the spirit and the fabric of their cohesiveness is at the core of a TEAM’s overall performance.  Whether it is Sidney Crosby (centerman) or Kris Letang (defenseman),  Pat Hornqvist spoke after game 3,  Murray has been interviewed,  the players all seem to have a sense of confidence and speak of their performances during games in a positive way, even when discussing what happened during a game where they loss.


Nooooooooooooooooooo for all of you who know me wondering if I have fallen off a glacier.  I have not taken to hockey… but I do appreciate teamwork, and in this case my love of penguins, and a bit of friendly competition, has me rooting for the Pittsburgh Penguins, that they have good goal tending is bonus.  When my son thought he wanted to play hockey, he wanted to be a goal tender. So I heard all about the goal tenders of the day.  Watching Soccer honed this interest …  for me the “specialist” on the teams are the goalies

In every day life, we are our own goal tenders.  Do we let challenges that are coming at us, around us, affect our lives are we passive….. no, to be happy, and to live the way we want to live, > in a state of happiness< ( the best antidote to stress and stress related disease)  a dedicated athlete, practices daily, it is a way of life… so too must we, focus and live in the NOW.

caught in time


There are moments when I am caught up in what I see.  We were in a drive through, when suddenly an ordinary moment became one of dimension and depth.


I was drawn into another world, each blade, each stem took on personality of its own. I wanted to capture that moment, and I did.  It all took place in probably less than a minute.

Begin Once you Perceive

Even now, hours later, when I look at that moment in time, these pictures, speak volumes to me. I want to experience every blade. each leaf, and discover the marvel of the textures in the bark

How awesome.  Simplicity, I was inspired, I took action, and I’m blessed now with the happy feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction… Life is good.I so love being part of it.  Thank you for sharing the journey with me. =^_^=
