Thursday Doors 3.10.17

door 2 march 9.17

drums beating a steady rhythm

a deep droning chant

accompanied the talking drums

somewhere within the lush vegetation

there would be a path

leading towards the origins

of the mesmerizing communication

behind each door

is a the total sum

of what “Nature/Universe”

has in store for us

find the door

open the door

and walk through

for all you do

each passing day

if look to find the door

meant for you.

Stop  Hesitating  – Abandone la actitud reservada y vacilante –

When we travel, we pack up our suitcases with our destination in mind.  When we are being moved because we are at a stage in life where we need more care than can be had if we stay on our own.

Packing to go away, I never know just what I’ll need, so I take some of this and two pairs of jeans, etc.  Especially if we are to travel in our own vehicle, we can take more, “just in case”

But if someone else is packing for you, you find yourself watching, listening to the activity around you.  I am the person packing, the person watching and listening was my Mother who will be 96 on May 1st.  There was no hesitation on my part, I needed only to know what it was she wanted with her.  BUT my Mother who has travelled the world, toured China, walked the cities of Greece, bought opals in Australia,always independent and full of curiosity to see where she would visit next, now knows her destination will be to a health care facility miles away from her home city.  Temporary, never-the-less I know it is a trip she would rather not make, wanted very little.

My Mother has always been strong and stoic, whatever challenges the Universe sent her way,  she dealt with it.  She didn’t dwell on how, she simply did what was necessary to get what she wanted done.

Her attitude is.. bring it on, I’ll deal with it.  She never hesitated to live her life, so while we her daughters,  do our best to make it happen in a way that is best for her.  I believe that the Universe will watch over her.  The most important thing in life that she will need, won’t need to be packed, because God has blessed her with the Divine presence that lives within her.

when time stands still

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Times stands still when I spend time with you

some how the air is cleaner

my breathing lighter

the environment calms me

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

no neon lights

no blaring noises

just the singing of the breeze

as it gently weaves around the leaves and trees

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

the play of sun and shadows

a gallery of  visual wonders for my eyes

the symphony of the wild life that abounds

music to my ears

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

All dear God/Nature/Universe

because you are with me

now forever and always

loving YOU is my life

When Time stands still

my morning meditation/ prayer

Q

pictures were taken exploring lac Rupert, Quebec

looking back

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

It really was just another day on the road.  We stopped, and I got this feeling that we were being watched.  You cannot see in this picture, but in the darkness of the woodlands, was a deer checking us out….  well ok, I can’t say for sure it was a deer, but it had four legs, and piercing eyes.

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

I tried for another look, at that time I was using a digital Minolta, I confess that I am not a stealthy hunter when I cross over brush and fallen logs to get a closer look.  At the time, I didn’t know about  phone cameras where I could see what I was stalking.  It is in clearing an area on a shelf for a new acquisition ( an airplane clock) that I found the delinquent disk, with pictures from “another time”- labelled Bancroft.

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

From the pictures of the interior of the darkened woodland, I see I was determined .. and was not going to just walk away.  I’m  happy to say that this stubborn streak is still with me, much to the chagrin of others.   Now looking back many years later, what I have to show for this adventure of mine, is pictures of a forest woodland that held on to its mystery and mystic, why share the pictures, it’s a case of you had to be there… really there to appreciate the moment. =^_^=

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

I have no idea what this last picture is all about, but decided to include it since there is so much black in the other pictures.  As a photographer, you have to accept that some of your artist captures, are not always, A1, but for sure, they all capture that moment in time, when you thought Ah Ha….

some one, or some thing

watched in the shadow of the trees

drawn to the feeling of being watched

I let myself be captured by the slight movement of the leaves

as always when totally caught up in the moment

my heart did a little dance

my sense of awareness went into over drive

would we connect

would my lens find its mark

no matter, I had to pursue my  need

to capture what I couldn’t really see

this adrenalin is pure, it comes from within

the artist in me is alert

for in a nano second, I’ll press connect

to the instrument in my hands

the moment passes, the thrill happened

will the climax be complete

when I look at the

picture on the screen

no matter what

I lived the moment

and the picture

that I will see

will be

a forever reminder

that in that second

I was part of life

in that space and time

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Do you believe that you are always connected to the Universe, and that, there are times, you are drawn to produce, or create something, because it just feels right..?  I believe that we are all artists in our own way, sometimes, what we do, is clear, the picture, a “master piece”  It conveys something to the artist and the viewers alike.  Other times, it is a reflection of a moment that came and went.  No more, no less.

Just be

Bonjour, hello how are you today?

IMG_1101

Good Morning, thought I’d show you the snow outside the house today, it isn’t so pretty today. After the huge storm of the other day, dropping over 50 plus centimeters on us, we still have a lot of it piled on the streets.  It is cloudy and overcast, and with the sidewalk plow having gone by, well this is what we can see. This is the pile along the street, and below is the snow on our front lawn.

IMG_1107

 

The blue spruce is playing peek-a-boo, happy that we put a barrier between it and the sidewalk.  Not every day is sunny, and not all days bring out the crystal lights in the snow.  But it is still the same snow we love to see when the sun shines merrily on it, dazzling us with its glittering display.  I’m not a skier, but when I did do X-country, the wet snow of day such as this, was sloppy.  Temperatures are going up and the snow out there is being rained on.

Even the house has lost its country cottage charm this morning. A positive here, I see the bird feeder needs more seed.  Actually, I loved the vintage, look when we bought ther house, and even today, as I see her braving yet another winter…I admire how she has stood the test of time.   They the weather forecasters, tell us it will be a cloudy wet day, all day.  As the temperature rises, the streets will really get mushy.  Hmmm choices, stay in, go out, its darn warm and cosy inside, and I certainly have a lot of projects and things to do… isn’t it wonderful to have all these choices.  =^_^=  we can sit and share a cuppa tea/coffee..

Luckily I share my world with other bloggers who travel the globe and live scattered all over the world.  I know they’ll be dropping in during the day with stories of their own.  Many will bring a ton of sunshine they’ve captured here and there.  No matter where we are in the world, we are always sharing life/the Universe with others.  In today’s world of the internet and social media, we can cultivate and explore all parts of the world, make new friends, and best of all, we thrive, we grow when we allow friendships to blossom and bloom.  In exploring the various dimensions of ourSELVES through the friendships we make, our world as we know it, expands, we know that what is outside our door today, is only a moment in time.. in this very same moment and time, a friend is basking in sunshine on a mountain top or sandy beach.

Does anyone, can anyone remember or recognize these little give aways?

2013-02-23 brown eyed Susans 001

I once had these Black eyed Susans in our garden,  over time, they simply disappeared.

C’est la vie, such is life.

Wonders

d10fe73a282e40f1a5eb0c1c61d92df4

Feel the heat, know the hunger

that mixes with the wonder

of discovering that Nature can be so beautiful

yet, so complex, and full of mysteries

an ice cave, inside a volcano

could this really be

yes deep down inside under the crust of the earth

Nature’s awesome wonders

continue to be a fascination

that are forever bending and challenging

my understanding and appreciation

of what IS

china,red beach

because it isn’t in my immediate reality

does not mean it does not exist

or that it isn’t so…

it simply means I have not been there yet

or the experience is one I have not had

mars,atmosphere

Love is much like the above

we tend to want to categorize and romanticize love

yet time and time again

we learn, that only in letting go of preconceived ideas of what it should be

do we discover that it wasn’t that at all

when we allow love/God into our lives,

we thrive

no matter who we are, where we are, ” what” we are

all living entities/beings, respond to love

kindness, understanding towards one another

can change the world

when we explore what is beyond our known reality

we discovers the wonders, the glorious, the unfathomable

star forming,hubble

Love transcends our realities

be open to the wonders of life

looking up

snow magic

when walking through my dream

it seems, that all I did was walk

I searched, had no idea  what I was searching for

but on, and on I went

down corridors, and carpeted halls

even ran up broad marbled stairs

this is not my first time in the maze

sometimes it feels like I’m lost for days

it’s the past, it’s the present

yes I talk to people

I ask for directions,

I’m realizing now as I recount

this tale, no one ever says good day

not me, or anyone else I meet

snow magic 1

we are all so busy, busy,busy

how can I be lost

I’m surrounded by people

yet I  am on this endless search

I can’t find my “room” my private space

everything looks the same, each corridor

I find, has numbered doors,

1st, 2nd, 21st. floor it doesn’t matter

no door is mine, besides, I seem to have lost the key

snow magic 2

what web have I created with my nattering mind

and multi tasked habits

oh please, why do I insist on constantly searching

when if only I would stop, just stop

and look up instead of rushing

from one place to another

looking up

snow magic 3

I will see the sky, the Universe

and in the vastness of the Universe

my spirit will find peace

from the chattering of my mind

of daily matters that blind me

to the inner voice with me

that tells me, I need not search

I need not worry that I can’t get home

I am always home

God/Tao/Universe is always with me

 I am never alone

I need only stop

and look up.
