Rain on the 417

October 19_004

Bom Dia, Good Morning,  For those of you who do not live in the area, the 417 is the highway that takes one from Ottawa, to Montreal. It is a divided highway, two lanes going east, and two lanes going west .  The landscape between here and Montreal yesterday was beyond spectacular.

oct 31_015

The weather forecast was rain and more rain.  Ottawa was predicted to have heavy rains most of the day.  Montreal less so.  When we left, we were not expecting a great sun-filled or colourful day.  There was no sun, not even a glimmer or hint of sun.  BUT the colours were out of this world.  Brilliant, rich, full of drama, it was often gasping wow moments. It truly was mesmerizing, I couldn’t get enough of it.  Never have I been so enthralled with a rainy, misty foggy day.

My co-pilot was just as blown away as I was, our conversations were constantly being interrupted with our reaction to the scenery we were driving through.  Sorry no pictures it was raining too hard,  this is an extremely busy, highway.  Suffice to say, it was often surreal. The rain was so heavy that it drenched the barks of the trees, so that they stood out, like  inked ebony sculptures dripping with leaves of wet glistening golds, and often fiery burnished copper would stand out majestically against a stand of evergreens.

We don’t go out expecting to be presented with endless miles of Natural wonders…. but when it happens, friends, you feel truly blessed.  The ride home was foggy and we had the rush hour traffic for part of it, but the ride to our destination, was gift.  A picture would not do it justice, we had to live it.  Live it we did.  What a day, it was glorious, yeah, really… that great.  Neither one of us expected such a 3D high-definition all out mind-blowing show…but the heavens provided and we reaped the rewards.

Life can be exhausting, but it can also be simply divine, when you least expect it to.

Norm and fellow door chasers, there is a door in one of these pictures, with activity happening in the room beyond,  You can see through the windows.. Actually there is more than one ..

Till next time… you are loved!!!!

two of me? or is there more

 

 

Sometimes I am good, and other times, well… I want to play.  The picture on the right is of me where I accepted the challenge of wearing a bikini.  I was nervous being half-dressed like that, and couldn’t stand still.  So the picture is a bit fuzzy, but then that’s ok, cuz you can’t see all my  fat and bumps.

These were outfits I made to sell in my little shop.  The avatar is a Dinky made by a very talented artist in Second Life (Etheria Parrott)  She has  variety of dinky avatars to pick from, I happen to be a sealpoint and sometimes a lilac point Siamese.

The creative side of me can spend hours exploring the artist creations of others on the grid, and when not exploring, digital photography.

Q (that is me) can spend hours touring, taking in the sights and sounds, visiting different countries .. and never leave the comfort of my home office.  I like being Q, she is fearless, she can do almost anything,  she loves exploring and meeting people, and learning about the world around her.  I on the other hand, can be a bit of a recluse.

Awen 2008This is my friend Awen who introduced me to designing and building in/on a virtual platform.  It was a whole new world, and I was open to the challenge.

Life is unpredictable, our creativity, how we pereive the world around us, and how we want to express our individuality, is all part of a whole.  We are blessed by being given a new canvas every day.

Seize the day, make art!


PL Calendar, day 31   Your world will change when you look at things in a positive light.

Everything you encounter is an opportunity for you to express yourself.  What you choose to make of the situation is entirely up to you.

Oct.19 evening @ Pacifique_001

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.,

relax

1.4.17_006… so easily muttered, relax, relax…

Relax. I said, relax, sometimes the word itself is like an exLax

ever notice that

you are being told to relax,

when all the while you thought you were relaxed

maybe to some the word relax could be replaced by passed out

no somehow I doubt that

next time I should ask

please be more specific I will say

and just maybe, they will go away

then I will really be relaxed, eh!!

dreams

 

8.28_001Once more I saw the open doorway, showing me the path to the other side, this time I dared to wander closer.

8.28_003

There was a silence in the air, yet, there was a breeze and the bird (on the right) made a soft cooing sound as he flew by.  His bright feathers so fitting against the blue skies

8.28_004

As I walked my feet made no sound, yet the grass beneath my feet was soft and lush.

8.28_005

The pathway was inviting, I gladly let it lead the way.

8.28_010

Around each corner a new discovery.  Can you imagine my delight.

8.28_007

I felt rather than saw the light that seemed to guide me along through the growth that surrounded me on all side.  I knew no fear, I felt content and aware of the life around me.

8.28_009

There was much to see and take in. Such creativity, such vision.

8.28_011

When I entered a great hall, I felt small, I was one of many to stand  within the walls, I stood alone at that moment in time, yet in my heart I knew, I was not alone. I was surrounded by each and every one of you.  See you are here now. . Just not at the moment I was there. (smiles and winks)

8.28_014.png

There is much to see, enjoy, learn, and share as we grow as human beings and wandering souls.  Don’t be afraid to share and love the ALL that you are.  Dreams are part of our reality.  Whether you believe, or not.

the artists in the virtual worlds, are creators, and imaginaries

Wisdom is a divine endowment – not a human acquisition

Happiness is not the absence of conflict, but the ability to deal with it

Found this quote in one of my profiles.  I for some reason, did not note where I got it from, but the words aren’t mine, however, at the time, I must have connected with the sentiment.

There are days when I feel like “ I am” on a stage … that I am rehearsing or going through a chapter that is “in progress”.   For sure, what I am living is my personal experience.  Today while in meditation, I revisited, or tried to, my interpretation of an event that is yet to happen.  Then the spotlight shone down on me, and I knew I had to be in the present.  To succeed I have to be present.

Every frame of the “scenes”  being lived, needed my focus on the present if I was to even “live” to experience the pending “event”

Ah life, it is a beautiful exhilarating happening, isn’t it.

Enjoy the first day of a new month.

Happy Canada day everyone!June 15_005

PL Precept # 11  Allways be with GOD

 

marriage

 

Shinzen Japanese Garden, Yosemite_002

Marriage between two individuals, is a sacred bond.  It is a commitment of Oneness in a world of constant change. Like friendships that last, it is a growing of hearts, a learning in understanding, and a blessing of life, lived to its fullest potential.

Partners learn and grow together.  Without knowing it they help shape and form their loved one’s knowledge and wisdom of what “togetherness” is.  No two people are alike, and no two couples are the same.  What is constant in love that stays true, is unconditional faith, trust, caring, and acceptance.  Respect being a key ingredient.

Love is a four letter world, with endless definitions.

I have been overwhelmed with the thoughtful, caring, sharing you have all showered me with.  I know I am not alone, and never will be, you all fill my world with such support, kindness and affection.

For those who have asked, service will be on PL Ancestor’s day (the 11th) we will do the service at the church (10a.m.) for Ancestor’s day,  then Rev. Eugene will do a special prayer for Brian.  Brian took such solace in prayer,  when he was still able to read, he read the Precepts and Principles regularly.  Prayer brought comfort and consolation.

camp fire

Unconditional Love lives on forever

the earthly flame may flicker and die

but we, like the majesty,

of the Universe

will live on, in the mountains, lakes and streams

for all Eternity

Q
