              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”

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)

Charm of days gone by

charm and character of Sharon springs

This was taken in New York State, a few summers ago.  It was a sunny day, and I was out exploring,  in fact, this was my first time to this part of the State, I had read an article on an abandoned health resort, it was so intriguing I wanted to see it for myself.  I blogged about that trip the year I went.  This is one of the pictures that in that file.

Timing in life, is so important,  PL Precept #19  Begin Once you perceive and   PL Precept # 17   Grasp What is Most Essential  

 

Had I not been in the States on that day, enjoying the sights, and wandering down a side street I would never have been able to capture that picture.  The home was bathed in sunlight and shade, the breeze was just right, lifting the flag for almost picture perfect memory.  Whenever I see this picture I’m reminded of that trip, and I want to explore  more of the small towns in  that area.

Rev. Eisuke and I were talking yesterday of how it is so easy to “perceive” something, yet not take action… for whatever reason, we don’t follow through, guess what “something” doesn’t get done.  Or we miss something that was essential in the grand scheme of things.  We didn’t look at or take into consideration the full picture.

In the teachings of PL, we try to encourage and show why following the Precepts as best we can, is so important to our own quality of life and the happiness of not only ourselves but those around us.

Make someone happy today,  SMILE  share the  LOVE  include it in your day, it will radiate in your smile.

timing

street phot by Dave Hoefler,flickrBeing in the right place at the right time, having your camera at the ready, and the lighting  just what is needed to capture a moment in time.

When I saw this photo, taken by John Westrock, posted on Flickr, I thought, “what a good capture? and moved away, but something drew me back to look more closely. I must have contemplated on this picture for some time… I saw how the graffiti in the background sat like a halo over his head.

I wondered if the two shoes on his feet matched.  Some how, I felt that this man was having a peaceful morning smoke and was contemplating life in his own way. I decided he was content just basking in his solitude.

Of course this is totally a fabrication of my own.  I wasn’t there, I don’t know the man and have no idea just how long ago this was taken, or where it was taken.

What I do know is that the artist/photographer had a talent and a good eye to see what he did and click that shutter when he did.  I thought I’d visit his page to see what else he had posted.  Hellooooo..  not what I expected at all.

Timing, patience,total focus on the moment, these are the ingredients of  a good capture, a moment caught in time, some are worthy saving, some are not. Some moments will change you forever…

So it is in our daily lives, I began my thoughts this morning with the 1st photo, that I now know was taken sometime in 2013, research and dedicated time to search precious moments, a luxury, no I don’t think so.  I believe we owe it to ourselves to make each moment count, in a way that allows us at the end of the day to say, “thank you God” I had a wonderful day.

When we live practicing the  Precepts and Principles of PL (Perfect Liberty) we grow to know that no matter what the day brings our way, we can deal with it, we can embrace the moment and learn just what it is about ourselves that caused that moment to take place.

In PL, there is a Precept, #7, Everything exists in Relativity –  Precept # 11 is – Always be with God, two of my favourite meditations.

Timing

when we find ourselves truly embraced

and caught up in the moment

we often will find that we have come face to face

with  an unspoken fear

and in that very moment

the fear is no longer buried by layers of the past

for you have recognized it, at last.

the tree that was

Q sculptureWhen we first moved to where we live now .. I had a blank canvas to work with (landscape).  I enjoy a white birch, so I planted a young 5 footer  in a corner of our property… Every year i watched it grow and blossom into a beautiful graceful shade giving tree.  Have you ever heard how a breeze can create the sweetest of sounds as it dances its way through the branches and leaves?  It is the softest of whispers.

birch,waterclolor -The first snowfall by aud Rye

This is a water color done by the artist, Aud Rye called “The first Snowfall” (chrisbeckstudio.blogspot.com)

Artist love to paint, sculpt, photograph, landscape with it, it is a tree that has its own flair, and character.

Used in a garden or landscaped setting, the birch provides a contrast to the vivid color of the flowers, and/ or the many shades of green that are planted around it.

Even in the winter its sculpted beauty is a welcome sight,

We lost our birch to some kind of disease, for whatever reason, it just started fade, the leaves fell away, till eventually even the branches began to show their desire to move on, I was told nothing could be done. I had watched that tree grow from a young sapling to a princess, but one does have to let go and let nature do what it must.  So… I cut it down so that only the stems remained and using sculpting materials, I used it as a base for the outdoor garden structure you see  in the first photo.

For several more years .. it had a place of honor in the garden.. while its core disintegrated .. the weather meanwhile kept changing the face of the sculpture… with each passing season,I saw how the changing temperatures and many rain and snow storms took its toll.

Now in the garden we still have an arm of the tree here and there placed in different corners of the garden so that when I come across them I’m reminded of what was.  To visitors they are whimsical pieces, faces emerging from the greenery, to me, they are part of all that I am.

Some of my pieces are posted on Pinterest, those that I still have, and some that of course I no longer have because they were sold or adopted,…. but always over the years, i get word, or a reminder, of another time and place in my life.  Like today, when I got a notice that  the above picture of my expression had been repinned twice. and liked.

When we do something, say something, we don’t always get immediate feedback, but know … please believe me… each and every thing we do… has a consequence.  The timing may not be what you want or expect, but nature travels, works in its own way, Nature is always in motions, Nature/God is always with us.. we need only be aware and listen.

Enjoy each moment of your day, cherish the experience the adventure of life.  Embrace your creativity.  Life is Art.
