Finally, there you are.  I’ve missed my dates with  Norm 2.0   (click link to visit more doors)  .. it was bug infested trek but I persisted!!  I was the  buffet!!

Vicinity Stagecoach and Old snake island road, ON.Canada

past, present NOW

Quiet picturesque little lane that takes one down to the Seaway.  Old and new stand along the shoreline.  What was, will no longer be.We face this every day.  For the last many days I have not had a computer, I have learned from trial and error, that a laptop is not the way I like to fly.  Handy they may be, but for what I want and need (feel I need) is to be back on a desktop.  I would only come to this having made previous decisions that at the time, seemed necessary change.

One learns in life, that choices made at one time, may not always be what we most prefer, some we can easily change, others not so easily.  Some are impossible to change and go back to.  For example.  every time one changes our hardware (for working on the internet) the newer improved technology is one we have to readjust to.

Recently a display I had made in my garden, was vandalized. A grandparent thought it was ok to give his granddaughter a display doll that I had put out of reach of little arms. I am a doll collector and doll artist, the display was put well out of reach, it was high on a wall, and behind a big rain barrel.  Getting at it, meant one had to reach over and be tall enough to get at the doll.

It has been interesting to hear the comments when I retell this little story to friends, one even scoffed and told me it was only a thing.  I wondered how he would have felt had I gone into his well tended and beautiful garden and began trying to move his plants around because I felt that the roses should be next to a bee balm plant.  OR decided his lowers were so beautiful, I should just pick them and bring them to a friend who loves flowers.

Is consideration of other’s property a thing of the past, is the ability to recognize that rearranging a display in another space other than your own, is OK.  ???

All things, deserve respect, your car that gets you to where you need to be, the doors that open for us to enter, the shoreline that contains are precious rivers, lakes and oceans.  As an artist I don’t expect everyone to like my style of expression,  but I do expect RESPECT for my property if you are on it. I now understand why people put up DO NOT ENTER or PRIVATE PROPERTY up on their lands

(sorry took off  on a little rant there)  however it is all the same message.  Changes happen in life, some we can make choices on, and they affect us directly, others it is not as easy.

PL calendar day 29   Use what you need to use without hesitation. 

YOUR things, your money, your knowledge, and your strengths are all a part of you.  Utilize them to their fullest potential without any hesitation.

Feelings

IMG_20190816_105614_resized_20190816_122906333.jpg

Poetry in vision, someone one day said, lets do something with these great pieces of rock we have .. and wow… they placed them, planted trees and let nature help them as the years rolled on.

Even the shadows that are cast when you visit, show form and beauty.  Silent poetry that fills me with wonder … brings feelings to the surface and calms weary  eyes.   The environment on the given day, can lift my spirits, and bring calm to the ripples that have begun to churn on the surface of my adventurous mind.

PL calendar day 22, 2019   Appreciate the strengths as well as the shortcomings in others

Even though you may not agree with someone, complaining about it doesn’t help.  Remember, “we are all human”, and accept each person for who they are.

Feelings are part and parcel of who we are.  Get to know yourself, you will like what you see =^_^=   You are pretty special to me.

Chop Suey Thursday

with Bonnie 11.23

Why not.  I am on a bit of a rant today.  Where are all the farm toys.  Where does one find a small John Deere tractor, OK it doesn’t have to be John Deere, any old tractor will do. How about an old truck, a hay baler, one of those thing a-ma-bobs that make rows in the earth …little chicken coops, barn, toys that help depict farm life, or life on a farm.

Is that passé .. I guess I have not looked at children’s toys lately.  I found construction, firemen, police, lots of race cars, and space stuff, no farm equpment, or buildings. (second hand, and thrift shops)

Busy trying to locate items for a friend who is doing a diorama of life on a farm, I didn’t get to my doors.  Sorry.  Wait… maybe I have a barn.

After traipsing around town the last few days.. I feel like the door on the right.  Oh dear, I just flipped open an old PL calendar, it reads.. Your surroundings reflect your state of mind.    Think it is time for a nap.

Happy Thursday everyone.  Tomorrow is another day.

Thursday door

IMG_20190717_130104_resized_20190717_023249771

HELLO ?  anyone home,

years have come and gone,

somehow, somewhere along the way,

the grass,. just grew and grew,

no one walked this way.

now there is no path to this door

it waits patiently to be opened again

so please come again another day

Thursday doors

door pewter 1

Door lovers, I cannot tell you the joy I felt when I looked into a jewelry case, and saw this  brooch.  Pewter.

I drove food up to the food bank some 30, 40 miles from home.  I always wander around a bit and try to find something that catches my eye in their “boutique” or “home decor etc”…. this time… I felt truly rewarded.  A pewter door, brooch. YaHOOOOO

PL Calendar day 4

Follow your heart while also thinking about the happiness of others.  Always be true to yourself in your words and actions.  Strive to make others happy with a sincere heart.
