found VV July 10.18We 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..

found VV july 10These 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.

Look down, look up, look around, pleasures abound, waiting to be found.

              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”

banana's in PJs Feb.2017 AustraliaEl 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)

short story line

P1000082

he could hear the birds. feel the heat beating down through the trees, yet without opening his eyes, he knew he wasn’t in a park. the smell of rusted metal, and old oil and grease permeated the air.  his body was heavy, unresponsive, and whatever was on his chest was not going anywhere fast.

P1000085

his eyes still closed, he knew, instinctively knew, that the weight on this chest was alive, and it was gazing hard, accessing, patiently waiting.  Did he want to see what held him captive, sooner or later, he would have to look.  The weight on his chest shifted, but did not move away, he could feel the warm breath on his face. He was too stiff, tired and dazed, it would be unwise to move suddenly, if he could at all.  With a slow intake of his breath, he allowed his eyes to open.

P1000101

the sun hurt his eyes but he forced himself to keep them open, there was lush vegetation all around from what he could see, he was surrounded by the remains of vehicles, he was in a graveyard of scrap metal.  what he tried to avoid and was not succeeding were the dark emerald eyes flecked with gold that stared into his.  There was no emotion not human anyway that looked into his, just a pair of hypnotic eyes that spoke volumes, but none that he could recognize.

P1000088

suddenly the sun no longer gave him warmth.  now he felt a chill, it travelled from his head down to his feet.  This was something very different and very real, This was a she, he was sure, he was being held captive by a she, and he knew… she was wondering just what to do.  She wasn’t hurting him, she wasn’t gentle, she was exploring and sizing him up, but for what.  Why was he not afraid.  what was it that kept him still, and wondering, almost a partner in this unknown dance.

P1000087

life is what we make it.  how we respond to situations in life, can change the course or direction of our lives.  live being mindful of who you are and the opportunities around you. =^_^=

This is my story, that I’m sharing with you.  My mind likes to invent when I’m driving and waiting for lights or in traffic.

PL Precept # 2  To live is to express One’s Self

bom dia…bon jour…. hello!

6ecedfc5d214610718700258ff367a4a

life itself is simple

it really is

it is the human mind

that complicates

what IS

8e43cd752afd31dd59eb3660f7948efa

I am sometimes at a loss

not necessarily for words

but for the “music” or visual if you like

to accompany the words

in life, there is always a positive and a negative

you cannot have one

without the other

one person speaks, the other listens

the start of a conversation

one sees something, and captures it on film/photo

they have already seen it,

what they are doing is capturing the moment

to share, to show, to express

one picture, a thousand stories

not one person wil have the same reaction

CHINA-T-NATURE 1

however, we will each have a unique response

if we stop long enough

to allow the moment to speak to us

silver, gold, I wanted it all

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

6175dad517bd7f5ea86ca512d1538703

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

thank  you…

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.

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
