When the landscape beckons .. I listen … sometimes I don’t realize just exactly what I’ve captured till I get it home and see it on my screen. This is a progress (change) that i really enjoy. At one time I would see something, then have to wait till my roll of film was done, and then processed before I could see my “capture”

We are not always wanting the “changes” that develop around us, but the acceptance and the inevitability of change is something we cannot change. Change is constant. We can refuse to accept or use new technology, that is a choice we make. I can vividly recall, my horror at using a bank card. now.. well now the horror is when I can’t find my card.

Saying never, is a limitation we place on ourselves.

Friends we meet, near and far, the internet friends we have never met in person, some are as dear to us and sometimes, even more, than the world we walk in everyday.

So saying I would like to thank all the new readers and welcome you to the community that shares this “webspace” with me. To my blogger friends, your sharing is an inspiration, my world is enriched 1000 fold, having you in it. May the holiday season be a happy and joyous one for you. We are always a keystroke away. =^_^=

we are share the same root system =^_^=

journals, art and

journals 1

Good morning, Bom dia… How are you all, this lovely Friday morning. The teasing aroma of simmering pork riblets is wafting in from the other room.  Ahhh another day begins.

What you see is another start-up collection of journals, I have gathered them and put them in one spot. The couple that I am currently working in, are still in my atelier.  According to the Oxford dictionary (yeah hey guys, remember the dictionary, hard cover with actual pages)  a journal is a newspaper or magazine dealing in a particular subject.  A daily record of news and events.  A diary.

Mine are mostly art journals, prior to the art journals I was having fun in “junk” journals.   The art journals allow for me to play with my paints, and inks, experiment with various techniques, and truth be told, play around and have fun with medium that allows for visual expression.

new tool 2.16

This spatula is a fun tool that I found at DeSerres the other day.  I have used it now in my ways, I amaze myself at how much fun I can have with one new addition to my tool box.  Had it not been on sale, I would have passed it by, it had a red sticker, and I was checking out the sale items.

That happens all the time, we are so focused on looking for what we are wanting or think we want, that we will miss other gems along the way.  That day I was inspired to bend down to check out items below the usual area of my search and find gaze.  It is amazing what we can find or discover when we let go of “patterns” and try something different.

rusted vs reality

 

rusted memory

rusted metal & chrome

look at those lines

oh to have you for my own

time has not been kind

still I wish you were mine

be my July valentine

Q

july 19

oh do get on with it

I am trying to sleep

tsk, groaning and moaning over metal and chrome

honestly woman, you have me

 I am here with you at home

appreciate what is near and dear

metal and chrome, are cold

I am soft and warm

best of all .. I don’t rust

my words you can trust

It is true, I do have conversations with my dog.  she inspires some good ideas with her feedback.  It can take me a day or two to unravel her wisdom…but if she can get me to understand the jumble that often tumbles from my mind, why not…

PL Precept # 17  Grasp what is most essential

words are only words

sometimes they tell a story .. sometimes they don’t

It is the listener / reader that gives them meaning

me and you

april 25. Q china dream

There are days when I am not really the person that I think I am.  Instead I am far away in another land.

On one hand, I feel no pain, and roam free across the plains

On the other, I am grounded, focused on the sounds all around  me

who am I really, I can be here and everywhere

nothing can hold me back, there is nothing that I lack

china April 25_008

Take my hand, let us bond in forever land

you and me, me and you

dreams are part of who we are, and no matter where we are

the stars above, shine on us all… … Q

“PL Calendar day 1 ” Harmony leads to World Peace

It is important to lie in harmony with our surroundings.  The basis of a peaceful society is to maintain harmonious relationships.

It is true, no matter where we are, how far the distance, I will always love YOU.

Happy Saturday!

baby banana's

Baby bananas how cute is that.

Come on now. Baby bananas.

Have a banana-rama  Saturday everyone.  Catch the rays, ride the trails, simply kick back relax and enjoy what the world has to offer.

Listen **    See **  Accept ***

PL calendar #24    Focus your “eyes” and “ears” towards the expression of others without any preconceived notions.  Then you will be able to see their true intentions.

Listen and See with Careful attention and Accept Each Other
