Oct.2.Tuesday

yoda 3Good morning, bom dia, a quick doodle, or sketch this morning, of a little character that has caught my fancy.  You may or may not recognize Yoda, he was brave and intelligent, I like those characteristics.  Above all I appreciate creativity and  how when it is used for good, can do so much of a positive nature to the world around us.

Lately I have had to turn my attention away from watching media that  (in my view) is negative and confrontational.  We seem to no longer promote or share stories of goodwill, and /or positive interactions between the people who live on this planet.  We seem to see only politics, religions (all man-made) and use them to batter the people who make up our communities.  Our neighbours, friends, family, coworkers, why is it always, we against they/them, even within small units of people.

Watch the shift that will come, as the holiday season approaches, and the marketing  goes into full gear.  Then goodwill towards all will be played in the malls, over the media. glittering and shiny new toys and household gadgets will appear, Spend spend spend, then you will be happy…..right, till the bills come in

Yoda where are you, we need you now.. where are you with your clone troopers, come out of the fiction, we need you here and now.  Evil isn’t in the skies and outer worlds, it is here, living amongst us now,

oh dear, oh dear, I am having a rant. quick my coffee, get me to a store so I can shop, change my focus…… unfortunately that is a temporary distraction.  I still believe we need a Yoda.  What do you think?

PL Principle #2  I will not have complaints about others,matters,nor the weather.  Rather I will always be creativce and will look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.

Obviously this will be my mantra for today.  Blessings all, huge hugs.

Lego reality

 

lego harry potter fanastic beasts

Meet the Lego Harry Potter Fantastic Beasts Mini figures, this set can be purchased retail.  In it you get the complete set of 22 Factory sealed character pieces.  If you decide not to invest in the whole set, and try your luck at  purchasing individually, then you have to take your chances and purchase a single pack, for 3.99 and hope you get the hero that you want.  Otherwise you keep trying.  I believe that the set in Canadian dollars is about 180$ give or take.

The figures are rather cute, the collector that I am thought,  I want one.  I liked the figure third from the left, front row.  My first bag, I got Harry himself along with his owl, my second try I got #11 (yes they are numbered,) the character with the red hair and green  uniform holding a tea cup. 2nd row, to the right of the other figure I would like, the one with the pointed ears.

My next bag I tore open to find that I got #6, he is standing behind the one I want, in the back row with the green plant.  So far three tries, and each one is  3.99 with tax.  Do you see where I am going with this. By the time I am done, trying to get the two or three that I want, I will likely end up paying for the cost of the full set.  but then what do I do with the other figures?

They are darn cute,  I see the attraction, my reality is, with arthritic  fingers, and often diabetic numbness that visits these same fingers…. I ask myself if this is a collection that I really really want to start  playing with.  Of course the one option is that I find others who would want to trade.  LOL.. somehow I think that the age group I usually “play” with, won’t have any interest in mini Lego figures.

Oh!!! I was smitten by the dragon and figures in Lego #75951 (Fantastic Beasts)  why?  One figure looks like a Chinese magistrate, and the other is a an older character who looks dignified with his white hair.  Grindelwald’s Escape, it is 132 pieces, suggested for ages 7-14.  Take the hyphen away and turn the numbers around, maybe……  the characters are Gellert Grindelwald, and the other is Seraphina Picquery  I did get it, how long will it take for me to put 132 small pieces together.  It is anyone’s guess.  =^_^= will I try?

Some people never grow up, I could be one of them.  However, where my mind might be willing to explore  the opportunities, The body will often give me hints on the realities of actually following through.

Tuesday Chop Suey

IMG_1150 - Copy

What is this?

Como se chama isto?

It is the start of a new season, the flower will grow and bloom, then fade and slowly retire till another season follows.

Some plants are prolific and will show up in groups, they love gathering and rejoice in their moments of sunshine and light.

IMG_1150 - CopyWhile another will come on its own,

Happy to take its time, before reaching high to take its place in the sun

birds on a wire 3.14 2017While all of this is going on somewhere down below on the ground

Many of us are high above in buildings and in other places totally oblivious to the new growth and the life that is happening out of sight of OUR daily lives.  But life does go on, flowers do appear, trees branch out, and the man made buildings are softened, shaded and more welcoming.  People rejoice, take holidays, bask in the sunshine, swim in the refreshing waters and for a short time, commune with or in nature.

Val pink flowers Australia

Depending on where we live, the landscapes and geography will vary and be different. We, however, continue to work, play, eat and sleep in our man-made constructions.  Seldom do we contemplate the ground. Yes, I include the gardener, why, because the gardener is either focused on his plantings and reaping of the rewards, and the landscaper is trying to control the space, shaping and ripping our what in his/her mind does not belong.

When do we let go of what WE want, to allow the unique life expression of another take form.

Tuesday – friendship!

hydrangea 3

When a friend lets you down

there is disappointment along with a frown

it won’t last long,

never-the-less it smarts

or hurts that someone you care for

so casually drops the ball

thinking nothing of how you feel

and appears not to care at all

hydrangea 8.20.17

on the surface

nothing seems changed

yet, I know now

that altho’ we had/have plans

my friend will again,

drop the ball

if a more attractive offer comes along

not a pretty reality, is it

I am thinking that

our definition of friendships

are not the same at all

sad..

Doll Story 7.10.17

bottles on the drawer stand

Rosie stood back and looked at her chest of drawers.   It looked like she last saw it, yet it seemed that some of the powders were not as she had left them.

Meanwhile, Breeana was outside fussing with the vines along the fence.

breanna 7.10.17.JPG

She had carefully made her way down the path, pulling out as many weeds as she could along the way.  Listening to her music, time had slipped by it was probably time for her to go in.  She sensed that Rosie would be looking for her, and made her way towards the house.

Sure enough just as she reached the back door, it opened and Rosie was standing there, ready to call her in.  Realizing they had once more found their way to the same place at the same time, they both laughed and greeted each other.

Ever since they had met, they just seemed to be on the same wave length. it was a comfortable feeling, and the beginning of a fast friendship.

“Breanna” Rosie asked “did you dust my chest of drawers today?”

“No, I thought of it, but didn’t want to go into your room without permission, why?”

“Nothing really, I just have the feeling that something was moved, or changed” both turned to look back towards Rosie’s room.  To Breanna it all looked the same, but to Rosie, although it appeared to be the way she left it, something didn’t feel right.

It often happens where two people see the same thing, but each has their own impression of what it is they are seeing.  They each will have their own realities, that is why it is important to have open dialogue and to think before we speak or make assumptions.

PL Principle #2  I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather.  Rather I will always be creative and will look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.

PL Principle #7  I will not have a mind to be hasty, worry nor be pessimistic.

Keep your options open and be flexible

Leonie and ChenMay who had been listening, looked at one another, they had not gone into the room themselves, but they had wondered about the bottles lined up in a row, and they knew that Kit and China, like them had given the room more than a passing glance. Soon they hoped Rosie would tell them about the “secrets” in her room.  Did Breana know?

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)

IMG_0632

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.

IMG_0631

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.

IMG_0647

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
