shades of gray


stark, cloudy, bleak, no, not bleak, just gray

what is there to say

the water looks dark, cold and uninviting

no need to test it with my toe

by the time I walk across the snow-covered grounds

my feet and toes will  no longer be cozy warm

I think I will pass, and not go near the water’s edge

that is something I can do on another day

meanwhile I will view from afar

the far away shoreline, before

I head back, following the path that I’ve taken

back to the truck.

Not really exciting, but refreshing, yes.

A winter’s day, shown in shades of gray


I found some colour to brighten the gray

I will come back another day

We are heading into a storm

for winter, this is the norm

after all this is Canada eh!


PL Principle # 1_edited-1

words we say,

we can never take back

once spoken

they linger

time may erase the pain

but, long after

the scars remain

TRUE love given

no matter the distance

will remain true

 and, should there be pain

pure love will see us through

words can lie

real love is felt

often unsaid

yet the bond transcends

above and beyond

always and forever

today, tomorrow and always


no more, no less





IMG_4112Shadows cast their imprint on the forest floor, not looking up, I wanted to read the storyline that played out on the fallen pines and organic debris that carpeted the way

IMG_4113autumn sun was high in the sky, so that the filtered light cast beautifully defined lines against the rusted shades of brown and grays that lay textured, the perfect foil for the images being projected for our viewing.

PL Precept #1     Life is Art.

How we creatively interact with the challenges and opportunities that come our way, if we were to see them only visually, it would be like the shadows shown above. dynamic and static meeting as ONE.

violet 10.17

Wishing I could reach out and comfort you,

I saw your tears begin to flow

you tried hard to be composed

but the sadness in your heart, needed to let go

You looked out with eyes, that brimmed with pain

your tender heart was bruised and weary

so many senseless deaths, how much more

could you be expected to endure.

Life is not always easy, rainbows appear only after the rain

it isn’t always easy to understand

why there are times., when God calls home the chosen ones

and how it happens, isn’t always  or easy to comprehend

each flower has its time in the sun, then it fades away

and is gone, life simply flows along,

I reached out to wipe your tears

of course you were miles away, yet I know you felt the love

of all who shared your pain that day.

Everything we say and do, is for  reason

sometimes we know right away, and other times

the light bulb comes on when we least expect it to.

Know that always,  LOVE will be there for you

journals are merely earthly tools to help us

mirror what is in our hearts

I send this wish out to you tonight

may the blessings of the moon and stars

bring sweet dreams to you this night

so that tomorrow, all will be sunny and bright.


a prayer for you my friend.



Happy Saturday

pig dish 9.29.17

This little piggy was at the market

but was not brought home

This little piggy stayed on the shelf

where passers by, looked and smiled

Rest assured, this little piggy

will not be travelling for miles

to visit you soon

But the smiles and happy chuckles  he

passed on to people who passed by

I hope will stay with you

way past noon

Happy Saturday all !

smiles a  mile long….  and pass them on


sky high – Monday

festival winds bondi beach 9.17


look at me – flying so high

I am in the sky

riding the free-flowing breeze

oh… to never touch ground

yikes, if I do, will I be found

go away negative thought

God pilots my path

and in God’s grace/love

I have faith and know

wherever I go

it will be where I am bound


for God is always with me

I am never alone

Happy Monday


Bright, colourful, a visual delight

I am wishing with all my might

that this week

will be an endless maze

of happy days

whether  skies be blue or gray

I earnestly pray

each and every one of you

will find that God’s grace will visit you

and you will be rewarded

with the best life has to offer you

for dreams and wishes

to come true

we need only believe

love belongs to me and you
