When you get stuck, go back to the beginning. Could it be that you have forgotten what initially sparked your enthusiasm? By remembering what inspired you in the beginning you will feel a renewed enthusiasm.
I was in rural Ontario and Quebec yesterday, it was an awesome day for discoveries, colours were vivid and bright in many areas, but when I reviewed the pictures I had taken, I found that most of my interest yesterday was in the places we came across with a past.
Enjoy whatever the day has to offer. Reflect on the past, for it is the “history of what was’ that we build on our tomorrows – Live life with “makoto’ (sincerity).
Some doors are more inviting than others.. Photographer Ian Mitchell has been out exploring.. he’s found some interesting doors for us.
Mind you Ian, I’m not sure that these doors are what I would call welcoming, but you did find us a red door in Quebec city.
You’re happy, I’m happy. Have the mindset of “good for you, good for me”. Express yourself in a way that makes others happy.

I’m off to try and catch a glimpse of the wild turkeys that I’m told like to hang out in a parking lot in the very, very west end. If I’m lucky you will see pictures of them soon. I was told they are there very early, so dear readers.. have a grand day.. enjoy the fall weather ..
This manse stands beside the big church in a small town on the way to Cornwall. I’ve seen the church for years, but I’d never gone down the street beside the church. the other day I did. It is amazing what we find when we venture down a side street, turn a corner or simply look in a different direction.
I thought today I would focus just on the one “set” of doors that lead into the manse on the way to Cornwall, it was such a lovely old home, well kept, and very inviting. The church it sits next too is full of character, it stands proud along the highway, and is always a “joy to behold” driving towards it and past it. The corner were the church stands, always feels special. You arrive there, and always there is a welcoming feeling.
A church is but a building, true, it is the community and the people that give it life, and character, but the above architecture and overall lay out of how it is situated and been maintained, was a pleasure to discover and now share with you.
Good morning, took many more, but.. this is a sampling, the charm is everywhere. In our walk, we thoroughly enjoyed the parks, what was especially nice was that there were seating areas everywhere along the way for the “explorer” to sit a spell and simply enjoy.
Good morning everyone! What a wonderful day, overcast, rain, clouds, now is a prefect time to get out before the rain starts to come down in earnest. First I would like to share with you this wonderful collection of doors taken by one of my very best friends who surprised me this past year by asking me if she could show me her doors. Have known her for decades (yes plural) never knew she loved doors.!!! She had been catching up with my blogs and saw our Thursday Door feature. She told me “hey I have doors too, I love doors, can I share them with you?” You all know my response to that.. and I asked permission of her to share them all with you. =^_^=
This s today’s quote from the PL Calendar..
Tell yourself “Things happen” Even if something is inconvenient, once you accept it you will be able to move onto the next step.

This is an example of how wonderful life is, to know someone over the years who has become special and part of your “family” then discover that >once again, you have found another common interest< and you realize that even when we think we know it all, or assume “we know”…. we don’t. Every body around us is a multi faceted diamond. More to love and appreciate when we live with an open mind and heart!!
Doors lead us to new discoveries, about the world around us.. and in turn, about ourSELVES.
I was heart broken today when I went to visit a wonderful old “lady”.. a charming homestead on a back road that I drove by many many times. I met a young man while I* was waiting for my car the other day.. surprise we had common interests and memories.. He told me how a home he’d known for years had been vandalized, because it had stood vacant, and a blogger wrote about it .. giving its location.. This brought unwanted attention, windows were broken beautiful old doors were smashed, anything that could be taken was stolen. I felt a shudder when he told me about it, and wondered if we were talking about the same “grand lady”… Today I found out we were.
All around there are new houses going in.. I took pictures around the grounds, even tho’ the house has suffered the disrespect of looters, the family home and out buildings still hold the charm of yesteryear. It was quiet, I could imagine what it would have been like when children ran and played on the spacious lawns. Animals would have been lingering and enjoying the wonderful country sounds. Farm workers would have been tending the fields (in the back of the house) I could even imagine the smell of fresh baking wafting from the open kitchen windows.
The reality of the moment came crashing down around me when I heard a car driving down a road that was not too far from the driveway to the farm. Change is evident, we can’t stop progress, but I hope that a time will come when respect for the world around us, will eliminate the kind of unnecessary damages that were done to this fine old home. Not to mention the heartache to the family who have had this homestead in their lives for years.
Each person’s peace leads to world peace. First of all you have to be happy. That happiness will spread and be the foundation of World Peace.
