Where does all our/your excess end up? That is material things, what about the baggage that can’t be seen or held?
What was, often still is. How often do you review, and tidy up. We think we do, but how deep do we dive.
What are your true intentions, Not just with others, but towards your “self” ??
PL day 24 Listen and see with careful attention. Not only to your words, but to your actions.
Bom dia, Uma maravilhosa quarta-feira a todos! (thank you Suzana for the translation) =^_^=
Happy Wednesday to you all, may the day be bright and welcoming.
We begin our journeys with such innocence
so many dreams, hopes, genuine happiness
we find ourselves discovering something new every day.
Why do some of us stop discovering, and allow routine to take over..
These dolls I found the other day
Have been around, the top one probably more so than the other one
Where have they been, what stories could they tell.
These little treasures will come with me to the next Doll meeting
hopefully I will learn more there.
For the moment they have a new place to stay and experiences to acquire.
Every day is a new opportunity to live another story line, every day is a new beginning.
Look down, look up, look around, pleasures abound, waiting to be found.
PL Calendar day 15
Being Attentive Makes Life More Enjoyable
Live life paying careful attention to every detail, be it big or small. By doing so, you will be able to experience the subtle joy in things.
David Bowie on roller skates————————————- Roller disco dancing
Another time another place. I loved roller skating to music, feeling the beat, and if you had someone to skate with, you could waltz and two-step doing some pretty fancy stuff. I believe the David Bowie advert, was for a big disco roller event in Australia. I didn’t get to Australia to strut my stuff, but I did head for the board walk in California along the ocean. Such exhilarating times, you met others with the same interest and you got to chat and just hang out.
Now I’m told, social interaction is not allowed or thought to be a safe thing to do. When out at gatherings, or in parks, it is advised to stay in pairs, and not talk to strangers. I hear on the radio and television news broadcasts, always about shootings, robberies, and lately, accidents due to people texting or answering their cell phones.
It is common to show movies and have television series(s) that include violence, abduction, shootings and fights. And we wonder why there is a rise in gun shootings, stabbings and gang violence ?? Really?
Lately here, there is a hue and cry about the legalization of marijuana as if it has suddenly thrust itself on our society, ?????????? to my knowledge it was around long long before my time, and I’ve been around for a while.
There is a spoke missing in the wheel of “common sense” it seems to be all about stirring up rather than bringing peace or a state of calm. When it appears that the media, the box office – entertainment (movies) is always after sensational, or totally outlandish behaviours to bring in the monies or “ratings”
I don’t know readers.. as one cartoon character used to say “thatttttttsss all folks”
El momento en que percibs es la oportunidad
A chance esta no momento e que se percebe
The moment you notice is the best timing
Procrastinating will only weigh you down. The best time to do something is when you notice it. You will feel lighter both physically and spiritually. (PL Calendar # 19)

silver and gold, I wanted it all
treasures of jade and jewels in all the different hues
cold cut diamonds and semi transparent pearls
sapphires, emerald, the bling, dazzle and sparkle
how hard it was to resist the glamour and false dreams
that in collecting and hoarding material wealth
I would find the happiness that had eluded me
Turned out I was wrong….
It was in letting go of material things that I found inner joy
Yes, I still admire and enjoy the jewels of yesterday
Only now I enjoy them in a different way
It is in sharing with others, and giving of myself
that there is a true appreciation of what a genuine treasures is
the sparkle of a well cut diamond is reflected in a friend’s smile
The depth and warm glow of a pearl
is felt when I see the love reflected in a friend’s eyes
I find gold in the sun’s warm balm
and silver in the stars and moon at night
when I look up and see a twinkling star I am filled with awe
these gifts have been there for me since the beginning of time
Let’s make each day we live a memorable one
Let’s stop squandering our precious time
unconditional love, is ours to give
I appreciate you all, you are my treasures, each and every one of you
believing in each other will see us through
whatever cones our way

PL Precepts # 15 All is a Mirror
PL Principle # 16 I will not have a mind to be arrogant nor conceited
These are the two lessons i am working on this morning.. I found myself thinking some very surprising thoughts this morning. Recollections of my unbidden thoughts from last night seem to be wanting attention. You know where a thought comes up about something that happened at another time that is disturbing … yet at the time, you hadn’t noticed just how much the experience was affecting your thought process.
Today’s calendar “lesson” says, that if we face a situation head on, a path will open up“…. hmm sits quietly and reflects on the niggly thoughts that are lingering. I didn’t like learning I had a lazy mind, but after it was brought to my attention, I did eventually see that I do have a lazy mind, LOL and it sneaks up on me when I least expect it.
This ahHA moment will also be a good lesson for me. Smiles, life lessons are ongoing, guess I’ll be a “work in progress” for some time to come.
Thank you for sharing with me -I so appreciate you all, may your day be blessed with blue skies and happiness.

I would like to do something a little different today, I wrote this in January 1995. Thank you for allowing me to share a past moment with you.

Looking out into the night, with only the shadow of dusk on the horizon, the fading lights of the car seemed to draw his mind to another time in space. He could have stopped her from leaving, but then instead of being alone with his thoughts,he would have had to listen, and be attentive. No,he no longer cared if he had to eat alone, or wake up with no one by his side, for once he was happy by himself.
He looked down at his hands,. Such sensitive hands, at least he thought them to be… he remembered how his hand had looked against the whiteness of her skin…. how when he reached out to draw her to him, his fingers had felt the softness of her hair….If only she had not spoken. Why was it that whenever he began to feel close, when the fiery warmth began to grow within him, words would render him cold.
There was a time when he would easily have pushed aside the momentary irritations of speech and continued on into paradise. Alas, that time had passed. With time he had learned that sooner or later the “words” would come, there was no escaping them…
With the dusk casting long shadows on the road before her she found her thoughts floating back to the silent figure at the window. She could have stayed, she knew how wonderful it would have been. How gentle his hands, how loving his touch. When he reached to hold her, she had felt her body respond to his need… his closeness catching her breath. such contentment, he wanted to share “all” with him. He’d stemmed her words wanting only to pursue the moment.
She felt her hand on the wheel… the smoothness of the leather, the power of the engine as it purred along. There was a tightness in the pit of her stomach that longed to be eased… her mind was caught in that space of time, when she so easily could have succumbed to the melting passion that balanced so precariously on the brink of her consciousness.
Somehow she had pulled away, she needed more… words were part of who she was, she was fine on her own, she liked having the bed to herself at night. Over time she had learned that she could not live in a world void of “‘words”.
To experience life we must venture beyond our horizons and explore the unknown… in transcending boundaries, we find oneness with the Universe.
The words, pictures and thoughts are mine alone.Q

Day after day, time after time, we get to do some tasks over and over, or hear the same complaints, thoughts, musings from friends, family, co-workers, its a daily grind, getting up going to work, sigh… there are days when the mind just won’t stop babbling away. Then we take a walk, go hiking, or drive by a something new, something we haven’t experienced before. Do we take the time to stop and explore or do we keep on going? When I saw this picture, I stopped! what a WOW factor. Arizona is on my bucket list. My husband surprised me one year by allowing me to think we were going on a trip maybe 10 days) down into the States to see a friend who lives in Montana. What he didn’t tell me was he had mapped out a way to get there showing me a number of States I’d never been to, and then coming back from the west coast so that we traveled back to Ontario,Canada through the Provinces. Now that was an amazing time for me, we didn’t get to Arizona yet, seeing this picture has increased my anticipation. =^_^= ( 9 States and 5 Provinces later we got back home) See the pond that looks like a footprint. Reminds me of the poem Footprints. Put your heart into all you say and do. When we do something over and over, it can get boring, revisit how you do it, put a smile into it. Thanks for sharing this moment with me.. Blessings be…… Namaste ……. Oyashikiri ……..
