Thursday doors 2.1.18

When you see a building off in the distance, you know you are going to get closer.  No matter the weather or the road conditions on that day,

A simple structure, not sure what it is for, I wondered if it is decoration or for children to play in while the parents enjoy a coffee break.

When I found the door I was excited.  Wow… it is all in the details.. rustic, charming, certainly a cheerful moment in an otherwise ho hum day .. (weather wise)  My husband and I enjoy this park, in the summer, it is not over crowded, and the breeze from the water is always refreshing.

We didn’t get there last fall, due to circumstances beyond our control, so this was a very pleasant surprise.  Put a door on something and all of a sudden, it becomes a much more interesting place.

PL calendar 1 – It is important to live in harmony with our surroundings.

This little house and door,  fit into the landscape just beautifully. =^_^=

Maintain harmony in your lives, daily, harmony is the basis of a peaceful society.

Thursday door – dreams

Alexander Lautsyus January post

Door –      usually we think of a physical barrier that opens, closes, revolves, but what about the doorway to our dream states, or entrance to another realm.  When Alexander posted this picture in earlier January of this year, I was immediately transported to another place, a state of mind/Being.  I had no words to describe how it made me feel, it just spoke volumes to me.

I immediately texted him asking for permission to use this photo, this is a copy, to see his original post, please visit ice art Jan 22.18

The picture for me puts a visual on the “feeling” of some of my dreams.  His 1st picture in that blog, reminds me of when I am searching looking out, and this one I’ve posted, reminds me, or gives me a feeling of happiness and joy.  He was on Lake Ontario, he looked, he saw, and he captured.

Not a physical door, but definitely for me, a doorway, an experience of walking through to another “world”.  For “real” tangible doors, you need to link to Norm 2.0 and from there follow the links to all the other bloggers who post to this feature.

Thanks for sharing today, it is a beautiful day, and you are all part of my sunshine!

Thursday doors -windows

houses 2x

Good morning everyone, the holidays are fast approaching.  We are busy trying to settle back into a routine, and I am once more running the roads on errands.  I am especially trying to beat the rush that will take place closer to the week-end, it will be impossible to find parking in the shopping mall parking lots.  Already there is a sea of cars as far as the eye can see in the bigger centers near us.

Norm’s Thursday doors, is a huge interest to me, doors being so much a part of my life over the years.  I am a keen  buff on older homes, doors, windows and all that go along in the inspiration of my creative spirit.

The I found this collection of hand stitched works of art, sitting waiting to be framed in a  thrift shop of all places.  Someone had spent hours carefully building these charmers stitch by stitch.  That to me is a true love of houses, windows and doors. Having attempted at one time this craft, I had full appreciation for the hours spent on putting these together.

If I have learned anything during the last few weeks, it is that what we see on the outside is not necessarily what is going on “inside”  Our bodies house our “souls” the vibrant and vital energy this is our “lives”.  The windows and doors, are the way we look out, and how we maneuver the in and outs of our journey through this life.  In some ways they reflect our personalities .. many times, they are merely shelters.  It is what goes  on, inside the house, that makes it a home.

PL (Perfect Liberty) celebrates every 21st of the month, with a Thanksgiving ceremony.  The service is dedicated to giving our appreciation and gratitude for the blessings we have received through the month.  Think today as you read this, just how many blessings you have received in the last few days.  There are always positives, we need only be receptive to them.

At first I was sad that the beautiful work someone had done was now in a Thrift Shop, then I realized that it was the joy in stitching that was the person’s pleasure, and now, I was happy in the discovery.  Sharing his/her work with you, is also a “happy”… May the many little windows and doors open for you today.

Find the sunshine, find the happy, in your day.  You will be blessed in many ways.

Our ancestors lived with the land, they worked hard to cultivate and bring what they hoped would be lasting foundations for generations to come.

In Perfect Liberty we celebrate our Ancestors every month on the 11th. We offer our appreciation and gratitude for all that was, that made us who we are today.

Our ancestors built and walked through many doors.  Many still stand today.  A humble home with a solid door, one that opens in welcome,  and at night provides shelter from the cold.

Open your door today, welcome the opportunities that come your way, carpe diem …. seize the day.

Have a joy filled day, may your hours be filled with blessings that  stay with you forever.  Life is meant to be lived.

Thursday Doors 11.2.17

abandoned 7

Hello on Thursday!  This is the door I’ve tried to get to for the last month or so.  I remember when this house was occupied and the welcoming decorations that adorned the door in years past.

I chanced the drive up the long  drive way, but no… there was no  way I could closer or move the brush to take a clear picture of the door.  Such is life, it looks like the homes on the next door lot have also been purchased, and are being left to… waste away as the weather does its work on them.

Eventually  the contractor will come, tear them down,  some new buildings will go in, condos, or another type of multiple family building, with little to no green space for the children to play.  It is happening all over, I’m sure not only in our city.

A door was often a welcoming part of the home, during times of celebrations, or events, they would be  a place to decorate, with festive colours and maybe even a banner. Welcoming guests,  just being plain neighbourly.  People know their neighbours, children played with each other, learned about how each lived.  Learned to respect and enjoy another’s culture if it was different from their own, and even if it was similar, no two families were carbon copies of the other.

My doors today, have had life take over, and are no longer the symbol of welcome they once were.  Please, visit   Norm 2.0 for his blog and a link to other Thursday Doors

Does your door open to new possibilities, on a regular basis?

Every day we are blessed with new opportunities. For a healthy life, it is our responsibility to keep our passage way/doorway  uncluttered.

chop suey Thursday

IMG_4093Some times when we are travelling full speed down a Provincial highway, we admire the beauty along the sides of the road.  Same is true when we are on secondary roads.  My mind will pick up on a detail, that later brings me to another storyline.

Two very different landscapes, yet each sends me images and text.  I imagine that for many this is also true.  This morning, when I opened up my mail, one of the images I saw was this one.

Of course I thought immediately of Norm’s Thursday Doors.  His this  week is AWESOME Norm 2.0  For those of you who know my love of the “character” doors, you will appreciate why today he had me mesmerized..

My husband has been wanting to take me back for a visit to Newfoundland and Labrador, he worked there years ago when he was still doing radio/TV… I have also been there, but just to visit, now seeing Norm’s doors, you can bet your booties, I am going to be suggesting that YES, Let’s pack up the truck, bring the dogs, we are going exploring.

See that is what an image can do for me.  I love seeing the world through the lens of another, as well as my own.  When we focus, a whole new world opens up for us.

BE  present.  always.  listen giving full attention.  the rewards are   A MA Z I N G

I didn’t plan on a trip to the States yesterday, but there I was, having lunch in NY State, and adding to my fabric stash.

Life is good, life is great, being alive to see the fall colours, WOW, we are so lucky those of us lucky enough to experience Nature in  all her seasons.  Yes even winter.
