what was

waku,Japan 2016

Sterling, handsome young man, caught in a suit.  Would we think this was the norm…  we could, he carries it so well. Confident, charming, years from now, this will be what was in 2016 on the day that picture was taken, it will not reflect anything else, but that moment in time.  We are often reminded of what was back in … pick  a year, any year…  What we discover is, that what was back then, although still part of our “make up” is in no way where we are in the “now”

Will this young man remember the day he was off to play golf and was caught in the moment.  Maybe.  Life is filled with so many wonderful adventures, and we get to live each and every one.  I am often asked if I remember something that happened some many years ago.  My honest answer, is probably not.  If the person is able to give me enough information, I might catch a glimpse of what that person is remembering,  however often my memory is not the same as theirs.

People come together for a reason, strangers meet and become friends, or not..    But the encounter is one that often leaves a lasting impression, sometimes, it is felt right away, and other times not till sometime yet to come.  When you live in the NOW (present) you are living in the moment, and that moment will be with you forever.  Even if you are lost in thoughts of the past, what is happening to you in the present, is still happening, you simply are missing the moment, and that is too bad, why, because you can never get it back.

Like the exhilaration of fireworks,  they happen, then they are gone.  It is our decision whether or not we go forward, or try to hold on to the past. Whether you want it  to or not, life will continue to flow in and around you.  One season will roll into the next, enjoy  the changes, you will blossom and with each season, your blooms will change.

Facebook has a habit of popping the past at you.  This morning, I found this on my FB page.  I wondered what on earth !! then I read the notation at the bottom, they had provided that too.

Do you recall what you did 6 years ago?  And the next question, Do you really want to know?

Curious, that’s all.

Personally I care more about what I’m doing now and how I live now, PL Precept # 16  All things progress and Develop.  Every moment counts, I love the experience of living.  The past.. yes it was good at the time, but the reality is, I don’t even know where Mr. Spud is today, what happened to him. OH and the spuds, were they significant?  who knows, that was then, this is now.

Enjoy the day everyone!

It is full of such potential and possibilities

going nowhere

Wakefiled 7

Sometimes, we dream of far away places,

Sometimes these events do take place,

Other times, what was, was

and the time comes when

our dreams are shelved.

live with hope in your heart

remember the journeys

the past is what your present is built on

live each moment to the fullest

PL Precept #7  Everything exists in Relativity

discover the true meaning of life

only then will you find true happiness

PL Precept # 16   All thing Progress and Develop

The only constant in life is Change….

Whoa, hello… unexpected company for breakfast.  Wow.. what a shot, the photographer had to be right there, camera/cellphone  in hand. Click, Gotcha!  What a moment right. Do you know we have such moments, several times a day, we just don’t always catch them.  It hits the conscious mind “ping” .. after that actual moment passed us by.

We get one chance in life to live a moment, once it is passed, it is history.  In the blink of an eye, you have moved on. Love with all your heart today, appreciate the blessings you receive daily, because you do.  See the positives in life, they are in abundance. Believe, have faith.

My son just called to tell me that a man he thought highly of (Larry Lord) passed in his sleep during the night.. R.I.P. Mr. Lawrence Lord.  I didn’t know this man personally, but I certainly know his daughter who has been part of our family for  many years now.  I know the love and dedication this man inspired in those who loved him.  Even in his last years, my son spoke of how he loved to sing, smile and be happy.  This man knew about being in a happy “state of mind”.

When we live being true to ourselves, in everything we do, with love, sincerity, and appreciation of what we have,giving joy, sharing a smile, a hug…. our lives will be blessed in so many ways.  Death is an ending in this life… it means our bodies are laid to rest…  a new door opens..

somethings simply are

one day, it simply happened

I looked up and there you were

obviously you had been there before

but .. somehow.. I missed seeing you there

nature has a way of reclaiming

what man has tried to take away

there is no tomorrow or yesterday

only today

one day you wake and find the floral essence of the bloom

enjoy it while it comes alive

for all too soon, the flower fades

to shrivel and begin its journey

to another space and time

no, not into  the gloom

it has come, lived, and gone

no more  no less

Still is ………. only now

Ciudad Perdida, pre-Columbian site, founded about 800AD

the passion, the love

is a memory 

that haunts the visitors

of today

history

Can we obliterate the past

If we turn the other away

will the memory be erased

like a brush wipes away the chalk marks

on a well used blackboard

We edit, rewrite, correct and revise

even with all the amendments

the past is still present

in our minds, even echoed in

perhaps diluted form, but repeated

never-the-less

for even when a lesson is learned

lt only gives birth to  yet another

phase of the adventure we embarked on

when we were first conceived.

no more…   …no less
