Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens,   Kahlil Gibran

“A man should never be ashamed to own he has been in the wrong, which is but saying, in other wisdom that he is wiser today, than he was yesterday”.  Alexander Pope

This picture was taken on a day trip exploring the back roads in the Gatineau Hills,  We never know what we will find when we turn a corner, or turn left instead of right.

Yesterday I was driving along  with clear blue skies when I came to a red light.  Instead of going left I went right and drove right into dark gray clouds, driving winds, and hail. In an instant the world went from, what a beautiful day, to Whoa!!! hello adventure.  Such is life.  For 15, 20 minutes or so, we drove in a gray snow blind. Barely able to see the road ahead. Then as quickly as it came, the storm left us.

Life is full of surprises, and how we accept and deal with them, is our choice.  Have a great day everyone.  Visit Norm’s blog for a link to more doors. Norm 2.0

Thursday Doors

 

This delightful learning tool was in a thrift shop.  Each door has a different key, keys are included.  The child learns to find the key and open the door it belongs to. Or goes to the door to be opened, then finds the key to open it.. then lock it.  If only I had picked it up when I saw it.  I had never seen one before.

next… a window view of the alps below.

Enjoy your travels today.  Walk through a few doors.  Create your own adventure.

Rain on the 417

October 19_004

Bom Dia, Good Morning,  For those of you who do not live in the area, the 417 is the highway that takes one from Ottawa, to Montreal. It is a divided highway, two lanes going east, and two lanes going west .  The landscape between here and Montreal yesterday was beyond spectacular.

oct 31_015

The weather forecast was rain and more rain.  Ottawa was predicted to have heavy rains most of the day.  Montreal less so.  When we left, we were not expecting a great sun-filled or colourful day.  There was no sun, not even a glimmer or hint of sun.  BUT the colours were out of this world.  Brilliant, rich, full of drama, it was often gasping wow moments. It truly was mesmerizing, I couldn’t get enough of it.  Never have I been so enthralled with a rainy, misty foggy day.

oct 31_008

My co-pilot was just as blown away as I was, our conversations were constantly being interrupted with our reaction to the scenery we were driving through.  Sorry no pictures it was raining too hard,  this is an extremely busy, highway.  Suffice to say, it was often surreal. The rain was so heavy that it drenched the barks of the trees, so that they stood out, like  inked ebony sculptures dripping with leaves of wet glistening golds, and often fiery burnished copper would stand out majestically against a stand of evergreens.

We don’t go out expecting to be presented with endless miles of Natural wonders…. but when it happens, friends, you feel truly blessed.  The ride home was foggy and we had the rush hour traffic for part of it, but the ride to our destination, was gift.  A picture would not do it justice, we had to live it.  Live it we did.  What a day, it was glorious, yeah, really… that great.  Neither one of us expected such a 3D high-definition all out mind-blowing show…but the heavens provided and we reaped the rewards.

Life can be exhausting, but it can also be simply divine, when you least expect it to.
