What happens, is I don’t get to walk, and the birds and the wee animals …they all take time to visit other places in the woods.
Strive to overcome obstacles by changing your mind-frame. things don’t always go as planned. When that happens, try changing how you look at the situation or how you are doing things. The outcome is in your hands.

Its Okay to think “This is where it starts” There is always a turning point. It’s important what you do from now.

It actually worked out.. with the filming crew at the site, it gave me time to come back early and do work that needed doing here at the house. I did catch up with a friend, and we did get to work on a project that needed doing. We hadn’t planned it, but life just presented us with the right ingredients. And had my day not been rescheduled for me, I wouldn’t have had time to have a “coffee break” with another friend. There you go! life is good! Not at all what I had planned and expected, but worked out even better, because I got to share it with friends.
PL Precept # 19 – Begin once you perceive. Faca ao perceber, Actue inmediatamente al percibir.
That happens to all of us at one time or another. I am no exception, the artist that did this installation many years ago, had me captivated with the sculptures used, I appreciated it at the time for the creativity, thought and ability to reproduce his/her vision in a virtual world for us all to enjoy. Now I have gone deep into my library files to find the pictures I took then because I can relate to them in a different way.
Always a very efficient and capable person, I prided myself on my organizational skills and my ability to carry out in an effective and efficient way, projects and tasks I’d undertaken. Now, years later, I find that I’m not so interested nor am I doing a very good job at multi tasking like I used to. In fact, (light bulb moment) I don’t want to. omg I’ve said it out loud, and I’m posting it in black and white. (goes thru papers looking for today’s calendar…)
Change your mind, thinking “it will be alright” – Do your best you can without being overly attached.

Ok this will be my mantra for the day. I have to work at accepting I am no longer in my 20’s/30’s and I no longer have the same drive or desires (ps. nor do I have the same stamina, but I still want to live like I do) (stamina that is)
i.e I liked doing everything myself… yesterday I had to ask my niece and nephew for help… Tide not only makes their products child proof, if you have arthritis in your hands.. forget trying to open their laundry jug. Bah humbug!
Ooops fell off the page.. sorry .. “change your mind, thinking “it will be alright“….. repeat …. LOL I’ll be fine.. will go walking in the rain.. it will wash away some of the cobwebs.. Do you know when its 9 o’clock pm on the west coast, it is midnight here where I live!!!!!! (yes someone had a late night!!)
Some evenings I sit in silence – my thoughts travel the distant shores
Often it is a brooding silence that haunts me, clinging to me, shouting for recognition
In far off lands, I walk a shoreline where the wind howls and the seas lash the rugged coast
there my spirit roams, the salty air wraps itself around me
the mist gathers me in, and I am free to simply BE -Q
Energy springs from your smile. A smile makes you and others cheerful and energetic.
Perfect Liberty 2021.4
A smile is something we feel inside, a smile plastered on your face, doesn’t mean you are happy – it is the simplicity of smiling from within that radiates from your eyes and your whole demeaner – being happy is an art.
Energy springs from your smile, when that smile is sincere ..
You can get all dressed up, do your hair, pretend its going to be a glamour day, but no matter how you cut the cake, if there is work to be done, or matters to be attended to that aren’t fun… You have to set your mind to the task and get it done.
Usually there is always a lot of hard work and effort that goes into putting/pulling something off in a seamless fashion, or presenting a “brilliant” feature documentary. For a brief time we can look very professional and maintain a certain air of efficiency and know how. BUT, we all need down time, and we all, each and everyone of us, needs time to regroup, to be still, to reconnect with our inner Selves.
The teachings of PL, the 21 Precepts and 21 Principles, are what help us navigate through the world we live in today… Stay in touch with what grounds you… what keeps you mentally and physically alert and positive. Life is too important to squander.
PL Precept # 15 All is a mirror Todo es espejo
PL Precept #11 Always be with God. Confie todo a Dios.
Obrigado PL por me ensinar amar assim Por ver Deus dentro de mim e em qulquer lugar
Thank you PL for teaching me to love, to see God within me, and everywhere around.
With one thought, “the world” will change. Changing your way of thinking will make a difference on how you perceive the world.
How many of us are spending time waiting. In my area, it seems that everyone around in different provinces or States have had their first, even some have had both of their shots. Meanwhile, we wait.
I’ve tried reading, I was as you know going out and feeding the birds, but now with the change in the weather, they are doing just fine.
Time is spent thinking, wondering when there will be a more balanced approach to how we spend our time, even catching up with friends in person, instead of by phone or virtual calls.
Even having the shot will not mean life will just return to “what it was” No, there will still be the need for masks and social distancing. Today there was segment on the radio about how the animals, especially dogs will adapt (not) when their humans return to working outside the home.
Now more than ever, we need to live being aware of the good, positive “things” “happenings” in our lives. The quote I posted yesterday, resonated with me then and even more today.
A thankful heart leads to happiness. When we really pay attention, we are surrounded by many things we can be thankful for, the society we live in, the kindness shown to us by others. You will be able to find true happiness when you can see and appreciate things.

Look forward to what’s ahead. There is no use brooding over the past. Always try to begin each day anew with a fresh outlook.
Past, present or future, always remember to be sincere and honest. At any time, the place where you are standing at that moment is the stage upon which you must express yourself. At each moment in time, there is sure to be a way to express yourself in relation to your position or status.

Each of the above pictures, I created to be the visual to a story line. I got as far as doing the photos, but never got around to doing the story, or piece to go with them. Years later, and I still feel that I will do it. Time will tell.
When I was a child, my father would take me to places that now are only distant memories. These memories come back to me when I explore Asian builds in the virtual world.
Don’t think overly about people. Instead of being excessively concerned about others, focus on what yhou should do.
Perfect Liberty 2021.31
During these times of restricted travel, virtual travel is actually a great way to learn about other cultures, and places you’ve never been before. In SL I have met so many wonderful and interesting people, I have been a virtual traveler since 2007. I’ve met people from all over the world, and I’ve expanded my ability to stretch my creative ideas in more ways than I can count. Bonus.. I’ve made friends, good friends who have crossed the border into what we call RL (real life). The reality is, we are who we are, no matter where we are, or how we are expressing ourselves.
If you are still looking for something to do, some place to hang out and listen to some great music.. She will be at Tango’s when she is done here at FogBound.
