NH fever

IMG_2952

Spring fever, the desire to be outside, to be part of the awakening vegetation.  I could almost see the grass turning a deeper shade of green right before my eyes,

I probably passed this drain many many times, last year, but this year, Wow, it popped up, and mesmerized me with its geometric design.

Of course I’ve seen the brilliant yellow early flower of the forsythia bush, but in NH it was even brighter and more beautiful against the green of its companion Juniper or was it a Yew.  Who cares, it was a delight.

AND really have you ever seen a better piece of art.  Made in the good ole USA. =^_^=

Art is everywhere.                Discovering in NH (New Hampshire )!!   what a great way to spend leisure time.

Spring comes once a year,

it lasts 3 months and then it fades away

Life is an accumulation of efforts, that we make every day

whether it be spring, summer or fall

our lives take place  NOW

967d6facd499d9ca5e43360b6d541e28we accept that the blooms will bless our days

then fade away when their time is over

why is it so difficult to let go of love

that no longer breathes life into your day

Life is precious

you will live through your own personal seasons

enjoy the changes

make them your own

live in the NOW

Buen dia, Bonjour,Merhaba,Buongiorno

Hello, Hallo greetings to you in every way!  Isn’t it a lovely day, we had a new blanket of snow over night.  Everything looks so “winter wonderland” white! Looking out this morning, it was hard to imagine the trees with their fall colours of crimson, gold and multiple shades of russet and fading greens .Being that we are already into January, the days are getting longer, and soon, yes soon, in a couple of months the same trees that are looking like  wooden bark sculptures of gray/browns dipped in  crisp white snow crystals, will be showing off their new dressings of mint & apple greens, buds of tender pale shoots will be breaking through the branches that will have soaked up the nurturing rays of the sun, providing them with the nutrients they need to open up to their full splendor.

The PL calendar today, is about not being swayed by the past.  It says ” It is what you do from now on that count”  Another way of saying to live in the moment.  So much time is often spent on dwelling what was, or what could be, and again, if only….   We can’t relive the past, but we have every opportunity to make each day a day we will enjoy so that come end of day,  we feel that it was a day well spent.

The internet is abundant in quotes and sayings.  Where do they all come from.  Some are very good and thought-provoking, others….  Again it is all in the eye of the beholder isn’t it.  Today I plan on having a great day… what about you!!

This is not my back yard… LOL…. but I sure wish I could gaze on this vista with my own eyes.  Be there, to hear the water cold and clear slowly  make its way over the rocks.  New Zealand, the more I see of this beautiful country, the more I want to explore.  Maybe someday.  Who knows.  Meanwhile, thanks to you, I get to research and find destinations, we can visually enjoy from our desks.  Life is for sharing, thank you all for allowing me into your homes, I so appreciate you all.

Goooood Morning everyone!!!

8a05040ff63bf636578dce8a44dcf019I have no idea why, but I woke up this morning and the found a song running through my head.  “It’s Saturday night and I just got married la la la”  I have no idea where that came from, why its there,   I’m trying to recall if I had a vivid dream, or what I was thinking of last night, but it escapes me.  I don’t even think I watched the telly last night… chuckles… oh well, at least its a peppy song, happily I don’t recall any of the words to the song except the first few lines.

It produces a wonderful, fresh and rather enticing picture for us to look at =^_^=.  How was is your day so far?  Are you enjoying it? The PL lesson for the day is about being proactive and flowing with the “joys” and never ending challenges of  life.  It is about being present, mindful, and honest with yourSELF in your reactions to what comes your way. Hmm  doesn’t look like Mother Nature is going to give me outdoor sunshine today,  BUT, my day starts with sunshine, because.. you ready for it.  I’ve started my day with YOU.

e1aa40ffc0eb9fbd1dcb9225c571640fEvery bloom holds a hug and prayer, just for you.  Happiness is sharing.  Its LOVE pure and TRUE > Oyashikiri

“Mine is the joy that comes from the path of liberation, and my secret I share with all, for in giving it I do not lose it” (Buddha-the Quest for Serenity)

Keep your eyes,mind and heart in tune with the changes, learn to deal with them proactively, and always keep a smile in your heart, share it as often as you can.

The colours of spring

9360114a654471448445137c7a20c93aToday  without the sun shining brightly through my office window, I went in search of a picture of flowers.  When I chanced on this picture of the Keukenhof Gardens in the Netherlands, it was a BINGO the moment I saw it.(  a WOW moment).  The riot of colour is laid out in such a symmetrical pattern. The synergy holds one eye.  The attention to detail, the planning that had to be executed to give these results, mind-blowing to someone like myself an abstract artist and a lover of the natural landscape.   The picture held me in utter fascination.  Art comes in many forms, this picture gave me an appreciation of the work /labour that had to take place for me to be able to behold and enjoy such man-made beauty, using nature’s provisions.

Today’s PL lesson is about how our smile/expression can make everyone around us happy.  It makes sense, if we do everything with a smile, we feel good, but we also spread that happiness to those around us.  I’m smiling now and I share it with all of you.. Be Happy!   A smile is contagious! Oyashikiri
