Thursday doors 7.14.16

WP_20130730_014

Windows and doors.  always fascinate, a glimpse, a peek, sometimes it is the door itself that holds our attention.

WP_20130727_010

There is always a hint of mystery, when I see a door that interest me.  I want to peer inside, better yet, I want to step over the threshold and go inside.

I always knew that behind a door would be something new.  No matter how many times I would push open the door, another “happening” would occur.

I will be exploring new dimensions of time in Japan while I am away.  I hope to have more to share with you on my return.  I may or may not get time to post over the next weeks, so know this.  I am going to miss you, each and every one of you who share my world.

may God keep you safe, happy and healthy

may each new day bring joys for you to enjoy

Till soon, I love YOU

Thursday doors 6.23. Japan

20130727_224818

Good morning, thought you might find these doors interest, the whole concept actually.  I have only seen this arrangement in Japan.  They are little toilet areas for children travelling with their parents.  As you can see, the child goes in has his /her privacy (more or less) to attend to his/her business.

BUT, the child size area, has an observation area for the parent(s).  This way the child is able to have the secure knowledge that the parent or guardian is right there, should they have any problems.

My thanks to the Reverend and his wife for being obliging models for this  picture  =^_^=    These could have been in the Tokyo airport or the depot for the Bullet train, I’m not remembering this morning.  Suffice to say, it is Japan.

You live where?

Switzerland, Vals

I’ve heard the expression, it’s just “a hole in the wall”, but this house in Vals, Switzerlannd, is certainly different.  For sure you are not in view of your neighbours, and you are not disrupting the surrounding landscape.  I also wondered what the view out was…

house,upside down trassenheide Germany

This house is in Trassenheide, Germany, and if you think that it is a stand alone, it isn’t.  There are many more such homes in other parts of the world.  Why anyone would like to live in a house that appears to be upside down, I don’t know, but if you  research it, there are such homes, and people do love them, live in them and enjoy them.

This next picture has nothing to do with houses/architecture, but it is an interesting find.  don’t scroll down right away … see if you know what it is.

body snatching prevention 18th 19th centuries Scotland

The above is called a mortdsafe and is a unique Scottish invention.  It came about in the 18th and 19th centuries to prevent grave robbing.  Scotland  was rampant with body snatching,  thus a way to crate and deter.  Examples have been found close to Scottish medical schools.!!

home, small Japan,Tokyo

This delightful build in Tokyo, Japan, is by architect Yasuhiro Yamashita,crowded cities, with small lots means that creativity is a must.  Home is where the heart is, home is what you make it.  No matter where you live or how you live, it is what or where you chose to be … or why are you there.  We can enjoy other landscapes, we can travel the world, we can fly, take boat cruises, there is a lot to see when we venture outside our familiar environments.  In the end though, no matter where we land, we are always still ourSELVES. No physical distances or weird and unique inventions will take away the fact, that you are who you are.  How you adorn your life, is of no matter, when you look in the mirror, it is YOU, you will see.

Mountains,Tianzi, used to filn Avatar

Tianzi Mountain, so uniquely tall and thin, they were used by James Cameron in the filming of the movie “Avatar”.  Some of the columns of stone pillars have reached over 4,000 feet above sea level.100e3b47ad44526ead38f80036de9140

Be at peace

Wherever you may be

For it is only in loving me

The me inside of you

that you will find inner peace.

Hey it snowed last night!

Ahhhh don’t we wish it could be so, idyllic fresh fallen snow, the crisp country air and evergreens looking like sugar-coated fantasy trees in a Disney movie.

This was a picture found on social media after the big storm in the Buffalo area. (Yahoo  news)  Somewhere between the two lies the different realities of a winter day in the part of the world that enjoy the wonders of nature’s four seasons.

 

 

Sadly even those who know that winter comes every year, and have been how to drive in snow, forget or choose to  do it “their own way”  Often drivers have not even prepared their cars for winter driving.

This picture was taken of a snow-covered street in Tokyo  during a heavy snowfall.   Remember the stalled vehicles in Kansas City in 2013.

We are not all in positions where we can avoid being out when Mother Nature gives full expression to her capabilities, however, as in all situations in life, if we are prepared, and focused on what we are doing, challenges are always easier to deal with.  When we deal with situations out of our control in creative ways, ingenuity lights the way,

Believe you can do it.  And know without a doubt, that God/Tao  will see you through. (picture of a commuter during a bad storm in London in January 1988) – below is a picture taken Dec.13.2013  of snow in Egypt, the first time in 112 years.
