what was, now is

Sometimes we open a door, and we are hit with an unexpected view.  One we had no control over, but we’re now faced with the “What the ?!?!?!”

The camera of course was the first thought, take pictures, details, catch it before it is touched or anyone comes.   Then talk to the workers, who are pretending not to be aware of your actions.

Keep calm, ask for an explanation.  PL Precept #4 Being annoyed limits your expression.

Listen with intent.  Pay careful attention to what is said.  Appreciate, and remember to say Thank YOU.

Then return to your office, make notes, and then  # 1. call the city,   #2 call the owner of the property who the workers are working with.  Being polite, and asking for answers and suggestions to the problem will usually inspire others to be helpful.

PL Precept #5  One’s self is lost by being emotional

Sincerity, faith and trust … are important ingredients to a life that is “balanced”

I’m not saying it is always easy, but they become part of your daily responses to opportunities when they are practiced on a regular basis.

Blessings of the day to each and everyone of you.  May much happiness shine on you day from morning to night.

Welcome day 25

val ocean wavePL Calendar day 25      There is no reason to hold  back

If you skimp on the paint, then your painting will not turn out well.  Live a fulfilled life every day, by utilizing things, money, your knowledge or energy to their  fullest


Not every day is a rainbow of colour, but every day there is movement and changes. Nothing in life stays the same.  Let Go, Let God.

PL Calendar #23   Appreciate Our Differences

Appreciate the colourful personalities of the people around you and enjoy their uniqueness to the fullest


Life’s journey is never a super highway, it is full of unexpected stops, and detours along the way.  Remember it is not the destination, but the journey itself that is rewarding.  When we are faced with the unexpected, stop and appreciate the diversion, it is  happening for a reason.  The details might not be clear to you at the time, but if we believe, and have faith, God/Universe will see us through. Love is unconditional.  Love sometimes is having to be different.  Let Go… Let God.

being YOU

Remember the saying, “the glass is either half full” or “the glass is half empty”  Is this fellow walking on the bottom, or is he coming up for air.  Some days it is hard to tell, if its a good day, or we are just used to the “ambience” and tempo.

“I am so busy” I heard someone say, ” I just can’t get anything done”

I would wonder, then what have they been doing that they are so busy. If we are focused on the moment, then each moment we live through, is an accomplishment.  When we go out to lunch, after we have had our lunch, didn’t we accomplish what we set out to do. We ate lunch.  We actually “do” things all day.  Is it that we don’t acknowledge our accomplishments, that we are always looking ahead, and not satisfied with the present?

Have I been listening to too much Pi.   Unless you have heard of the book, seen the film or listened to the CD  you might not recognize my reference.  That’s OK, my musing can be confusing.  Life of Pi

PL calendar day 20    You are YOU, Others are Others

You have your own way of doing things, and others have their way of doing things. Don’t worry about what other people will say.  Simply take care of the task at hand.

Can you believe we are already mid month.  Please have yourself a grand day tomorrow.  Enjoy it to the fullest.  Make each moment count.  A moment wasted on negative energy, is a moment you are not smiling.  Happiness makes for a great day.

When you smile, others will too.

a winter’s day

winchester fog

Driving through the take out lane, I saw the fog was lifting. earlier, not even an hour or so, I could see only two car lengths  in front of me

I was heading back towards the city now,  with each passing mile, the sky got brighter

building across from po

bright enough, that I thought to stop to take a picture.  Usually I am driving by this site during the work day, and the road is just too busy.  I may have mentioned that I have been wanting to get a picture before the whole building disappears.  It has happened before, I am driving  along a road I travel many times a week when suddenly I realize that a building has disappeared.

The world around me is in constant flux.  For some reason, the demolition, began at a time that for whatever reason, I missed it.  I happened to go to the post office one day (it is across from this location) and when I drove out, it was a “WOW when did that happen???”  That was in the fall, and here it is February of the following year, and there it still stands.

building across from post office

I did see an opening in the fence.  However, my common sense, held me in check.  No hard hat, and not wearing my steel toed footwear.  Maybe I’ll get a chance another day. LOL if I were to find rust I would be in 7th heaven.

This adventure took place last week, today, I am looking forward to what’s ahead.

PL Calendar 18    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.

What a good teaching to start a new week.  Hope everyone is enjoying a long week-end, and is revving up for a stunning brand new week.

A greeting that is sincere, is one that is heartfelt.
