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.

How wild does their garden grow

wow I don’t know said Mr Crow

For years now I come to explore

each passing year brings new colour in the rows

 see the roses are in full bloom right now

&  cherries are forming on the trees

come back in a week or two

the Saskatoon berries will be a feast

bring friends, this garden is here for us

nice meeting you Mr Crow,

my  name is Jay

in a flash of blue he was off

cawing as he flew

I’ll be back to  see you soon

Rosco chuckled as he flew higher up the tree

life is good when

 friends drop in showing appreciation and enjoy their visit

he liked being called Mr. Crow

Mr. indeed, and he chuckled some more

could he be getting old

in full voice, he cawed and called out

Happy Sunday everyone!

Thursday doors

p1000379

doors can be so inviting, complex or just plain in your face

whatever, when you see a door that is closed,

you want to go inside, especially if it is in a location

where had you come at another time,

it would have been open to visitors.

 

p1000384

p1000373

or like this old fire truck, we could look,

but access was not an option

p1000428

I encounter doors, in all shapes sizes, and

in very different places

p1000460

always a door that presents itself

is one of curiosity and intrigue

p1000485

just imagine all the stories that can be told

thanks for visiting,

another Thursday Doors.

Pl Precept #7  # Everything exists in Relativity

breakfast – steamed rice, poached egg

sharon-springs-15

Still revisiting pictures of Sharon Springs. NY while I have my breakfast.  Wondering what I’ll find this year when we head out on another road trip.  I’m drawn to landscapes with a “story”, at least one that speaks to me.  When I take the picture, I’m trying to capture the thoughts, or story line that came to mind when I came across the “scene”   Some are just my artistic expression, of a time and space, and others are like visual bookmarks for my “gray matter”

sharon-springs-abandoned

We are all different in how we catalogue information, for me .. I know… I’m visual… my desk always looks like gremlins came in the night and tossed everything looking for  hidden treasures. Of course, it is the work of my lazy mind and my easily distracted attention.  Smiles sweetly, and looks up with innocent eyes.  Of course I know it’s a mess… but it is my mess, and I like it.  that is what having one’s own space is all about. =^_^=

Now breakfast – small bowl of steamed rice, small helping of pickled cucumber (Japanese) and one lightly poached egg (omega) on my rice.

PL Precept #2

To Live is to Express One’s Self

We will each do this in our own unique way.  Life will continually present you with new moments of wonder, awe, and surprises. Some you will delight in and other’s may not charm you as much, but each and every one of the moments, are moments we are living.. and part of.  It is your choice, to live happy, when challenged, find a new creative way to overcome, to surpass, and go beyond.

Learn from everything – aprender que tudo

IMG_1802

In life, if we are present in our daily activities, we soon discover that all in life is a mirror. When we are faced with a choice, the easiest way is not always  the choice that will make you happy.  Just because you think you know something, doesn’t mean that you do.

I took my camera to Japan, intending to come home with pictures galore.  I barely had time to think of having my camera out, nor had I the inclination when time was available to me. C’est la vie.  I had a wonderful time, even though the long traveling time and the change in atmosphere/weather proved to be a challenge for me. More once the jet lagged has moved on. With no internet I have missed your visits, I will look forward to catching up when I can.

Thursday Doors –

P1000199

Doors of old buildings that have been maintained

given fresh paint

always give me pause for wonder

b.t.w thr building wasn’t crooked

I was trying to avoid cars

so managed an artist slant =^_^=

P1000194

my friend and I were waiting across the street,

we didn’t get to go across to see

just what was behind the open window

it made for an interesting effect

closed-door, wide open window

two wild and crazy guys

traveling with us in Japan

a place to pray and meditate

seen from the window of the bullet train

as we flew by on tracks of iron

as if it was yesterday

the energy and drive

remains with me today

WP_20130729_008

we came from lands far away

to learn and to pray

what I found most amazing

was that these teachers spoke not one word of English

The majority of the listeners

spoke (Brazilian)Portuguese, Spanish and a very few of us English

WP_20130801_009

we gathered to pray for World Peace

to this day

the energy from this last visit

drives me to work harder every day

to become a better person

one who can dedicate and focus on

living in a way to bring about

World Peace

In  Japan while there, it was hot the vegetation was lush

it was growing everywhere

where ever there was space

the green buds would push their way towards the light

LOVE is what nurtures growth

LOVE is what will see us through

LOVE should be part of everything we do

WP_20130801_032

LOVE is beautiful

LOVE IS YOU
