I have a soft spot for rocks. There is something about a rock that seems to be so attractive and mysterious at the same time. I have never come across a rock that I have not enjoyed meeting. They come in all shapes and sizes, for sure some are more valuable than others.. depending on their composition… For me.. they are story tellers. Each one has its very own unique story line. This group with the water as a backdrop appealed to me, I studied it for some time. There was a seating area near by…
I dared not sit .. I wanted to badly, but I was not dressed for the brisk freshness of the early morning. It will be my “destination” on another day. the above rocks are just off to the left of this wonderful chair. I picture myself there on one of our famous “indian summer” days lazily allowing the day to wash over me.
Treat today as if it your first time around. Just because you succeeded in the past ti doesn’t guarantee that things will go as smoothly this time around. Every day, each moment, there is a new challenge to face.

I will get to see the rocks in a different light, I will be curious to see if the same images appear. Enjoy the coming week… Sleep sweet dreams this evening, and if it is morning when you read this.. have a stunning day!
LOL I have no idea why the name.. well I guess I do. The rose is the fluff upper left. I had to rewind and ball of wool that was so tangled I was only able to save 4/5ths of it. Never one to waste a good piece of knotted and fluffy wool, I balled it up and put it on the doodle card I was working on.
While drying it took on the look of a wet rose. Of course the ultra matte gel used to sculpture it in place, changed the effect somewhat.. but in person, I can still see the outline of my rose. My lion is in the pieces of discarded paper that I ripped up from some notice or other… and layered it in a rolled ball that obviously flattened and mushed around. it is the Distress oxide inks that shade the papers that gave my Lion its life.
Beauty as you know is in the eye of the beholder. I can tell you with certainty that playing with mixed media.. making colourful messes is very therapeutic for me. =^_^= … A good night’s sleep works wonders too.
The everyday t hings you do will show when it really counts. If you have a tendency to be careless about everyday matters, you cannot expect to perform well at crucial times.

a little this and that… Eliza or anyone else out there, have you had experience with bromelaids? I found a beauty the other day, and brought it home.
for my other friends, I was up packing up a box of cleaning supplies shortly after 6 a.m. from under my kitchen sinks. I no longer have duplicates and half full containers.. Tidy now yes, but will I make use of the products??? ah… that is another matter.
You have heard of writer’s block. The fall season for me unleashes ideas and thoughts like the rushing of water … such as you see above. It is the opposite to writer’s block, yet in some ways it is the same. Why. The ideas are so many and the desire to create so strong, nothing happens.
Time to step back and assimilate the many incoming thoughts and messages. Put some order into the thoughts so that you can process how best to express what is happening in your “head”
Your surroundings are a mirror of your thoughts. when you think “this is going to be hard” then your situation will become difficult \, instead think “let’s do this!” and face your situation with determination. then you will be surprised to see how smoothly things go.

I am so blessed with the thoughtful caring friends n my life. Two such angels arrived yesterday, seeing them, sharing with them and enjoying their so cherished gift of friendship, has already started to open spaces in my mind, allowing for some sense or order.
In stepping back from my “self” for awhile, how I want to express all these ideas that have come with the fall season and the various displays of colour, will start to appear in a way that I can explore and experiment.
It is exciting I have been gathering canvas, pulling out my paints, we shall see.
Meanwhile, this has not been a wordless Wednesday, but it is Wednesday the 16th. Have a wonderful day enjoy whatever you do… Share a smile,your inner beauty will shine through.
Fishing, although I don’t fish, is something I think would be a quiet, comtemplative type of activity. I have seen pictures of people kayaking along shorelines, alone, silently cutting through the water, seeing the lake, river, from a totally different angle. If fishing, is there really a need to catch or “hook up” with a fish, or is it the very activity itself.
My son an avid kayaker, loves to fish. Not to bring the outdoors home, but to communicate with nature in his comfort zone. The water is still cold, we have not had any seasonally warm temperatures..yet already he has been in swimming.
IF I had a bucket list, a lazy drift in a kayak would be in the top twenty. =^_^=
PL Calendar day 15 Live with firm determination, thinking that “this will turn out for the best”
Everything in this world progresses and develops. Always be positive, knowing that everything will turn out for the best.
Ok really, trains passing, going at a clip, for one reason or another, I just wasn’t getting what I wanted. Some times like this morning. I was looking for a picture of “nothing” You know, emptiness. But .. all I could find were pictures of this, that and whatever.
OH, how about this empty lot, in the spring, before it became an active fresh veggie stop, no that didn’t work, I’ve used other versions of it before. These long week-ends are soooo long, on Friday I was thinking it was Sunday, on Saturday a non holiday, I thought it was Monday, Sunday was Sunday, then Monday, a regular day for us, but a holiday in the States, I was thinking it was Wednesday.
There is really no such thing as an empty space, nothing, there is always something. we need only really look, we have all heard the expression, “seek and you shall find”
and here is another one, “perception is reality”

btw. I do know its Tuesday, and I’m off to Montreal
