I wrote this back in the late 70’s… found it today while looking for something else.
Freedom is – a state of mind
Through each moment of the day
We experience, joy, happiness, sadness, anticipation and frustrations.
Emotions, are part of our core
With each breath comes an emotion
How we cope and accept, encounters and interactions with others…
is how much freedom we allow ourselves …
in our journey through life.
To see fragments of life shatter before you
in a glittering array – transcending joy
a new dawning.
thoughts taken from a page of a book I’d stored visual artwork and thoughts such as the above.
It is interesting to see how I captured my thoughts then, & to reflect on them, I think I still see life much the same way… will have to give it more thought though,
I like the contrast of the snow and the quiet moment of reflection in my beach house .. in the virtual world, the weather is always comfortable no matter where we visit, or the terrain we travel. In this world of constant change, we are gifted with new adventures and back drops for our “stories” and “travels”… the newness, the constant discoveries of what IS… makes for a world of wonder. Ours to discover !!!
Be thankful at the beginning and end of each day. Each and every one 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.

February 14, Valentine’s day – that works for some, for others not as much. Some years we stand alone in a universe totally different from our own. To all around, we look the same, but something is happening to us within. There are no words, no rhyme, just fragmented time.
Perfect Liberty calendar, day 14
Being considerate of others is just as important as what works for you
Always be mindful of the situations of others, not just your own. To have a good relationship with those around you, always think of what is important to them too.

“To fear love is to fear life, and those who fear life are already three parts dead.” Bertrand Russell
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.
Hey, how was your day? Decided to drop in to the Diabetes Fund raiser in Second Life. It is a good cause, of course since I was there, I felt I should look around. Found myself a fun costume.
I wasn’t ready to do a lot, change worry about hair style etc. so you can see, I chose accordingly, the virtual world, is no different from our day-to-day, we still have to deal with choices.
My ribs are showing. You can’t see how hard I had to resist having one of the special Halloween cupcakes I got for hubby. LOL it was hard, but knowing I had just committed to not having dessert for a month, and I mean JUST…. I settled for the plastic spiders on the icing.
I actually took up needle and thread today, instead of applying more bond, or glue to the fabric piece I was working on. I sewed the part of the roof that had not bonded properly to the background material
Now I’m at a dance with some fab music happening while I am busy sharing time with you. Multi-tasking at its best. You can see my avatar is dancing behind Nick, he and his wife Mel are dressed in identical outfits. They are rather clever. The party is just getting underway. Will go and be social. Meanwhile, we are ending October, tomorrow we start into a very busy month… some time soon we hope to here when the operations will be. I do know that we already have a lot of medical appointments set up for November.
Please understand if I am not as regular with my posts…. I will do my best, because sharing time with you all, is good for me. Over the years, you have all inspired me at some time or another. I love the connection we share. You are all the best!!!
My sister in law was a strong resourceful woman, she battled with medical problems what seems like forever. Yet she raised her family, say her children marry, and then the blessing of grandchildren. Had she stayed around, she and my brother in law would have celebrated I believe their 49th. anniversary.
The last few years saw her visiting the train station, more than I’m sure she wanted to, but an intelligent woman, she knew that a journey was soon to come. I never failed to marvel at her sense of “life” no matter her physical limitations, she always had an aura of vibrancy and life the emanated from her. Everyone who met her, dealt with her, enjoyed her presence. Even in the greatest discomfort, she made you feel welcome by her side. A “true lady”, genteel, she will be greatly missed.
She was a ray of sunlight that shone just a tad brighter than most.
The last few days, we saw the skies cloud over, we felt the murmur and call of the Universe.
One night the stars shone extra brightly, the next morning, we knew, she had spread her wings and flown home where she will shine down on us from up above.
The sunbeams that dance across the lakes, and caress the changing seasons, will always be a bit of Georgina, reminding us, she is not far away, Her legacy and faith in “life” will always BE.
Rest in Peace dear friend, you will never be forgotten..
Lizzie was an artist with a thirst to create, not just anything, everything she did was alive and vivid, just like her. Her creativity knew no bounds. When she first was told she had cancer, she said, OK, let’s deal with this.. and did what she needed to do, she beat the odds. Once, twice, the little vixen fought her way to live another day.
This last fight, she grew weary. She laid down her brush, with the quiet dignity of the true diva she was, she spread her wings and took flight beyond the heavens into the “night”..
We will miss you Liz, your energy and spirit, a diva warrior like no other, will forever glow in our hearts. Rest in peace.
