wandering

Seek and ye shall find. What a glorious day, Keeper and I did our trip to the food bank, (keeper is my female whippet). It was mild with a bit of a nip, but we didn’t mind, the roads were dry and the sky and bright blue, not a cloud in the sky. The kind of blue one gets on a soon to be winter day. The vegetation was colourful in that rustic faded autumn colours that seem to charm me, with the muted shades of brighter days.

I saw fields of harvest gold inter spaced with black wet earth. another field of a crop that was being harvested tempted me, the big machine was in motion, turning a corner as we sped by. There was enough traffic going south today, I didn’t get much opportunity to stop. I could only soak the delightful scenes in for future processing. Made a mental note to come home a different route so that I could search out, a souvenir of our expedition.

Happiness is standing on a quiet road, off the roadways that travel from town to town, and enjoying the quiet of the day. This is the property I found the tree on. You can see that for the most part, all the snow we got the last week or so, is gone. I hope that you had a restful day, that you managed quality time for YOU.

Be in tune with the changing times and evolving society The world is ever changing always strive to refresh your mind staying in step with the changing times.

come one come all

come one come all, come to the ball, it is open to all..

the winds whispered and sang through the trees,

hoping to catch someone, anyone’s ear,

but, the lazy river and the foliage basking in the sun

paid no heed, there was no rush, fall wouldn’t arrive for another couple of months.

Too soon, they awoke to found that the ground was covered in snow, and the cool wind that blew, was in no mood for a ball,

It had come in with the fall, ready to blow the leaves down, and was ready to whip itself up into all it could be, to ensure a clear path

for what was to be. High above from her vantage point above the snow queen polished her wand, making sure her stars were sharp and ready to dispense of all of her glittering diamonds of flakes. With a sweep of her wand, the land below would be covered in snow…

Then, what a glorious landscape it would be. she would call back the wind and open the days to the majesty of the winter sun… Only then would her handiwork be shown at its best. Her diamond flakes would sparkle and amaze, she loved this time of year…

Once more the call would go out, come one, come all, it is time for the ball.

Seasons come and go, we need to flow with the changes. In this way, we will always rejoice at what there is before us. Always be in the NOW.

a little cheer

multicraft gifts – Thurston Dr. Ottawa, Ontario,Canada

Did you just groan. LOL, get ready, it will soon be in your face. Crafters are already preparing, and many like myself have started the various projects mid October. There were several craft shows happening this week-end, I suspect from now till mid December there will be a craft show happening somewhere every week-end.

Whether you are prepared or not, you will be drawn in, the festive season is one too bright and merry to avoid. For Americans their Thanksgiving is this month. Double fun, and a lot of home cooking.

Accept everything with appreciation. Appreciate not just people and society, but everything that comes your way. You will experience a deeper joy in life.

Today I have a deep appreciation for my friend Bonnie, she is a wizard when it comes to organization and planning, I was lucky enough to get some of her time, to help me with my “scattered files” When my husband passed away, (he had been the master planner and keeper of the files) for me it was a mountain of a task to apply myself to what needed to be done.

Wonder woman arrived with her big blue scarf, her cape was in the wash, and giving me time to gather my wandering mind… she gently pushed the procrastination file aside and began in earnest to put some order to the disorder. A big thank you Bonnie.

I have finally reached a maturity where I can acknowledge that I’m not good at everything. >will wonders never cease< =^_^=

Express your feelings without hesitation. If you hold in all your feelings, you will feel heavy. Just say what is on your mind without hesitating.

the mist within

IMG_1470

We leave a trace everywhere we go, it seems impossible to enjoy without some how taking or leaving something behind. Some harmonize better than others. A wound may heal physically, but it will never be the same, ever.  Life does go on, we are blessed in ways that we will never truly fully understand, Nature will soon blanket the scarred and littered land around us with the beauty of fallen snow.

IMG_1477The fairy tale world of a winter wonderland, will lull the weary, allowing for time to recharge and erase haunting memories.  Right now she is blessing us with a wonder of colours and vistas of raw umber and burnt sienna interwoven with deep golden hues interspersed with  rusty reds,

IMG_1475Today, I am the birch, patiently waiting for you to  drive by, tires rolling across the asphalt, and the quiet to reappear till the next motorized vehicle comes along.  Please do not be offended, it is simply time for us to hibernate.,

changes

With the blistering heat and the high humidity, I scanned through back files to find a picture that was more welcoming to my wilting enthusiasm for another summer day.

Good morning everyone, how are you all doing this July 2.  In the States I guess you are winding down or up for the big celebrations coming your way in a few days.  Here In Canada we are recovering from the sweltering heat wave that lasted for all of the Canada Day celebrations.  Last night I was outside when I felt the change in the air, the build up of clouds, and the whipping of branches as the non descriptive breeze turned into a very expressive energy that was very interesting to see.

I stood stock still, wanting to take in this explosion of dynamic vitality that surrounded me.  I could smell the moisture that was building, I knew that it would only be seconds and it would start to pour.  Lightening flashed, thunder rolled, and then, only after seeing the light flash across the sky, did I move.  Just as I closed the door, I heard the drumming on the windows.. the rain had arrived.

Thinking it is coming.. makes me feel a whole lot better. =^_^=

A start to a new work week, continuing your summer vacation, whatever your plans, stay cool, don’t overdo, and most importantly, be happy.

quiet reflection

a moment of silence

a prayer for peace

a prayer for understanding

join in prayer today

reach out

show you care

kindness, love and compassion

communications that come from the heart

is how we start

to do our part

world peace

begins with us

we can make a difference

Believe, have faith

it can be done

seasons come and go

“life is art”
