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

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
