expectations

Kit July 20.17

Kit took the hats outside, they would be perfect for the visit back to the early 1900’s what was it she heard, 1934, or was it 1944.  Whatever, she knew that when they called her in, she would be ready for the part.  She had carefully taken them out of the storage box, and cleaned them.  They had been outside drying in the hot heat of the afternoon sun.

Inside, Nellie, Ivy and Elizabeth were busy making their plans too.  They had been called in earlier and told that they were going to be assigned to the project that was heading back to the mid 1940’s .. They would have to study and read up on all the information that they had so that they could interact in the best way possible.  They would also have to talk to Kit, since that was her special time period.

The did wonder how come Kit had not been included in the assignment, but it was not their decision to make, nor their place to ask questions.  They had over a month to prepare.

When they saw Kit come in they couldn’t wait to tell her their news.  Each was so excited, that at first it didn’t register that Kit had gone very quiet.  It was only when Ivy asked Kit, if she would like to sit in and help them in their planning.  that they noticed, that she hesitated.

Kit excused herself, saying she had something to do, then fled to her room.  Alone in her room, she felt sad and disappointed.  She was not going with them.  She brooded for a while, then thought, she would talk it over with her friend ChenMay.

In talking it over with her friend, she realized that it wasn’t her friends fault that they were given this assignment.  She knew they would be good at it, and that it would give them the opportunity to visit and experience something she already knew.  AND they had asked her for help to plan.  She would be involved, just not going.

That meant, as ChenMay had helped her to realize, she would going on a different adventure, something brand new to her.  Now that was exciting.

She felt so blessed that she had such good friends and team mates.  The gloom had lifted, and her appreciation for her friends grew. It WAS a beautiful day, her smile lit up the room.  ChenMay was happy too, she had  shared quality time with her friend, so she was smiling too…

Happy Ending

Expectations, when we allow ourselves to build expectations, we leave ourselves open for disappointment.  Wait till you have access to all the facts, and believe that you will always be where you should be when the time comes.

Happy Monday

How nice, another birthday card.  Rosie sipped on her tea, and listened as the movers grunted and called out to each other about the best way to get whatever it was they were moving into the house.  Her birthdays usually came and went without much fanfare, but this time, she had to admit, all the activity of getting the “girls” settled in was a lot of fun.

Each was so different, and the luggage and pieces of furniture that were arriving each day, was so fascinating.  So far, the silver dragon sculpture had been the best, although the very old roll top desk was also interesting. packages of odd sizes and shapes arrived day and night.  She was so glad she had accepted the offer to be here.

Even her old chest of drawers fit in, her room was big enough for her to enjoy the privacy of her room when she needed it.  Yet close enough to the kitchen and public area, for her to keep an eye on the coming and goings of the participants in the project that had brought them all together.

Birthdays were such happy times.  She wondered how old she was… but then, catching sight of herself in the mirror, she smiled.  Who cares she thought.. It is how I feel, and darn it all, I feel pretty good.

roses for Rosie

*knock *knock…” Roses for Ms Rosie”…. said a voice…

The day just couldn’t get any better thought Rosie.  Every day was so full of surprises.!

We hope you had a grand day dear friends… join us again for tidbits on Rosie and her friends.

a dragon appears

dragon 1

Yes she knew he was not real, of course he was made out of pewter, and the blue gemstones were not the best… or so she was told…  then why did she feel that he watched her every move.  She wanted ChenMay to be there, but ChenMay was not with her, ChenMay was in another part of the grounds.

She hadn’t seen him at first, and now she didn’t know what had made her look down.  As soon as the sunlight had gleamed on his eyes, she had known to stop.  She searched her mind to try to recall what ChenMay had told her about the dragon.  The dragon was part of the Wizardology   classes that ChenMay gave each fall to new Apprentices.

dragon 2She looked closer, and saw the defined scales all over his body, he was majestic.

“Oh there you are” ChenMay’s voice drifted towards them, as she approached where they were standing.  “You’ve met ” she smiled as she bent to pick up the dragon.

Leonie would say later, that one minute the dragon was on the ground, and the next he was gone.  ChenMay bent down, and when she stood, the dragon was gone. ” I saw him” she would exclaim, “he really was there, his scales shone in the sunlight. ”

ChenMay would only say, “dragon’s play, dragon’s fly away” then chuckle and turn away.

oh dear, oh dear,

PL Precept # 20 Live Maintaining Equilibrium between Mind and Matter

There is a world of wonder all around us!

Dreams

 

sleepingPeaceful sleep, a deep slumber, or simply resting, our bodies need the down time.  Time where physically we can just let our bodies relax in whatever way is comfortable. This way, not having to thinking of anything in particular, we can allow the mind to drift.

There are some who find that it is easier to have low lighting, and quiet, and others will tell us they like quiet music.  Their mind latches on to the melody and they float off into space.

Back when… we used to call wandering in space astral projection.  Are you familiar with that expression.  Dreams are a form of memory recall, but in a code known only to the Universe.  Eartha* and I touched briefly on this during our last outing, From very different backgrounds, and cultures, we still … as human… relate pretty much to LIFE in the same way.

As writers, a dream world is ever-present in our daily lives, as an artist, dreams explode into colour, pattern and textures  if we paint, if we are musical, our voice, or skills with musical instruments, take us beyond our own realities.

Imagine a world with out dreams.  Let go of day-to-day drudgery, allow your spirit to soar and take flight.  Explore in the night, your inner Universe will bring a kaleidoscope of worlds, past ,present and future  to you, open your mind to new possibilities =^_^=

PL Precept #1   Life is Art

—————————————————————————————————————————————— the day started at an easy pace, we were all still worried about Sam’s delay, the estimated time of arrival was July 11th. mid day.  Finally when we still had not heard, we had no choice but to wait till today.

The surprise was that  Celine arrived a day early… so time was taken getting her settled into her rooms.  Her hair was a fright.  Nothing would do but she wanted time at the spa.
