I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Quebec has to be the most beautiful Province in Canada. BC is great and so is Nfld. but Quebec has this rustic charm that never fails to enchant. AND because the further inland you go in the Province, the more you experience the cultural difference, the feeling of being “elsewhere” (other than in English Canada) is front and centre. If you ever want a special experience, visit “la Belle Province” – not for the big city experience tho’, unless you visit Montreal or Quebec City, but for geographical landscapes,(nature) rivers, lakes, skiing (winter) hunting/fishing during the right seasons… it is a breath of fresh air.
Always pray “for the happiness of others and Society’ Praying only for your own wishes is not the true way we should be. Strive to do things for the sake of others, and pray for their happiness as well.
There is something about the evolution of a tree, and what we have learned about how it grows, the different types of wood, hardness, texture, colour. I am captivated when I walk into a workshop where wood is being worked on/with. I love the many shapes, forms and characteristics of the different species.
In Wakefield the other day, the wood workers shop was not open when we went, but I got to explore his outdoor work space. Wood everywhere, it was a mini paradise.
I know that pictures are not the same as being there, but I’m sure for those of you who love this kind of “setting” as much I do… you can almost smell the wooden wonder of the place. In the back of this property is a babbling brook. YES I not only got a visual “high” I had the ambience of the running water and clear blue skies. YuppeeDoooo!!!!
We all have different ways of feeling and thinking. Let’s always accept others differences and respect one another. Remember that “different strokes for different folks” is the key to having harmonious relationships with the people around us.

Thank YOU for sharing my journey, allowing me into your lives, I truly do appreciate you, and for sure, I love all the comments and feedback.
Today, the 11th of the month, in Prefect Liberty we celebrate our Ancestors. Through the ceremony, we express our gratitude for the love and virtues of our ancestors and ask for their protection and guidance so we can continue to live the PL WAY. Service will begin at 10 a.m.
We are aware that many of you will be sheltering in place, we ask that you take a few moments at home to share in morning prayer with us.
All over the world, people are having to physically distance themselves from loved ones. In Canada this week-end it is our long week-end, a time when many of us would be gathering and sharing our table with our loved ones who do not live in our immediate “space”. May your creativity and love allow you to find ways to communicate virtually. Be grateful for the bounty we do have, and for the love and community we live in and belong to.
Be thankful to your parents and to your ancestors. You are here today because the “torch of life” has been continuously passed down. Always remember to be thankful.
It was a cool day today, there was a strong wind, and few people on the beach. Being a Saturday of a long week-end, the last before we march into the fall season, I expected there would be more people
Nice and quiet. There would be more people … the cars were pulling in steadily, with the promise of sun for most of the day, the scene would change soon enough. After all, it was not yet nine a.m.
Don’t give up!
Stick with it, as many times as it takes. Sometimes you want to just throw in the towel and say, “I give up” but that is the time for you to dig deep and push through. Your sincere effort will invite a good outcome.
Be Thankful at the beginning and end of each day. Each and everyone of your actions can inspire peace within your family your community and the world around you. This peace will eventually help lead to World Peace.
Believe me, the deer was very aware of our movements, in a flash it would have dashed away had we come any closer. Obviously used to human traffic .. the deer was not perturbed by our presence, but there was an awareness. Basically that is the way I am, when I encounter, new surroundings, or groups of people. Aware. At least I try to be, unlike the deer I can be distracted.
In my prayers, and meditations, I ask for guidance .. to be more aware, is to be kinder to other’s feelings, avoid accidents, be prepared to lend a helping hand.. and so on. How often do we become caught up in the moment, and miss an important message, or signal, that had we been “aware” could have altered an outcome.
Value your intuition. Be aware

Thanksgiving Service will be at 7 pm this evening. See you there.
The sculptures in the fall autumn settings were jaw dropping. The love of wood and what a craftsman can do with a piece of wood is something that I truly appreciate. Walking through the park I not only got to see real black bears, but the carvings of many woodland creatures.
It has been far too long since I have walked through the woods, surrounded by the falling leaves, and glorious views that are growing out of massive boulders and rock. Quebec has to be one of the most beautiful provinces in Canada (to me) when it comes to geography it blasts me away. It has a rugged beauty that can assail the senses 4 seasons of the year.
Since there is no getting out of your vehicle where the animals are, and I only had my Huawei the bears were cuddly little balls of fluff, and we know they were big waddling masses of muscles, teeth and claws. So the pictures are for reminders of that moment in time. only. We did get to see their dens, and how some liked to be social and others liked to maintain their distance This big ball of fur had a tan nose, and had placed himself high on a rock ledge overseeing his domain. Very imposing. Body language can say volumes.
Maintain a Positive attitude and wisdom will come to you
Worrying will prevent you from having good ideas. Stay positive and you will find a solution.
Good morning everyone. I was working on a canvas last night, when I found myself writing, LOVE IS AN ART……… ETCHED FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS
I started to correct it.. I read it and thought, oh it should be said this way, or what does it mean this way … of if I change this it will read better. All of us who write, know this little editor in our heads. Then I had a little flutter whisper… leave it.. look at it tomorrow.
So I did. I have decided to leave it. Love is an Art, and for me, it is etched forever in my heart, so… see waiting sometimes, is “good”
