Good Morning 6.26.17

vwlro 6.17

Good morning, this is our whippet trying to sleep last night, doesn’t matter its summer, and hot, he likes to be covered.  Usually his head is snuggled into his chest or he is on his back, but for some reason last night, he was sleeping with his head on the arm of the chair.  For those of us with a whippet or grey *Greyhound” even though we see their often,  odd way of sprawling out, it never ceases to amuse or endear them  Their ability to contort their length into weird upside down and twisted posses, and then fall asleep that way, is really amazing.

They can in a split second, wake and jump up from the most awkward of positions to a graceful and show-stopping pose.  Why, because he can, he doesn’t think about it, he just does it.

Furniture has to be covered, he owns every chair in the place.  Almost .. Canaille (our PWD) has hers,  but that doesn’t stop him from trying to horn in.  Extra loads of laundry are done, sheets, towels, and his blankies.  Oh dear, does he sound spoiled…. yes…. I guess they both are.

All this to say, dogs, cats, pets of any kind, are usually accepted for who they are, we can justify almost anything they do, or get up to, and we deal with it. Accidents happen, we deal with it.  As they age, we learn to live with an aging pet, who after years of unconditional love (on their part) and ours, we adjust and walk the path with them.  We do all this without questioning why, they don’t interact with us like another human would, so our compassion, and love seems to just happen.  Another human has a voice and thoughts, that will come out and create a different “reaction” from us.

Throw a penny into a quiet pond, it will sink or skip depending on how you do it, then it will fall into the pond and become one with the pond.  We see gentle ripples, or if we threw the penny, it might make a small splash.  If we throw a rock, we will get a different effect. Either way, once we “action” into, or at the pond, the “reaction” happens, then the pond returns to the state it was in prior to our interaction with it.

When we live in Perfect Liberty, we are like the pond, we hum with activity of our own, life flows.  When something/someone interacts with us,  how they interact, will dictate what our response will be.  We acknowledge the activity, let it go, and return to our
centre” our “core”PW

Living in a state of unconditional love.. is a work in progress, that we must always strive to achieve, if we are to achieve “World Peace”

roses 6. 2017

Life happens.  The roses are in bloom now, tomorrow or another day, they will relinquish their time in the spotlight, to allow the nourishment to feed the roots, so they can return again.  Life is a series of cycles.  Acknowledge and appreciate every day. Life is good.

There is Joy in simplicity!

Wordless Wednesday – What?

IMG_20151118_083908781_TOP

We take pictures, that is what we do.. those of us with a camera at the end of our arms/fingers, we take pictures, some we use right away, some get filed away till we discover them another day.  Well this is Wordless Wednesday, and I thought, let’s have a look at previous files/folders.  There are several whippet owners out there, that have recently hooked up to my blog.  I thought I’d share a picture of our boy.  This is one that I couldn’t remember when I looked at the small previews.  I uploaded and there was the picture. While I was looking at the messy bed (he is great at messing the bed, our own whirling dervish) I saw this head behind him.  I knew it wasn’t me, I took the picture. I was I admit stumped for a second or two, wondering who was in the bed.

My hair is no longer that long, or black.  that did look like my pillow and it is where I would be.. What was going on ?  Then “bingo!” the light went on.  Those of you who know us, have probably guessed already. I couldn’t believe that I didn’t know, I really had to question what had happened.

There you have it, our secret it out…. the dogs have taken over the bedroom.  Wordless Wednesday it is…. Enjoy mid-week everyone… if you live with a whippet or Porti, be aware, they have minds of their own. Before you know it, they have you trained. =^_^=

I am blown away by some of the photographs that fellow bloggers post.  There are several who capture the most amazing pictures of flowers, not just the flower, but their artist reproduction of it as they see it through their lens is very interesting.

Living in the city, right next to the downtown core, the object of our landscaping when we bought, was to allow nature to grow and give us a bit of country in our own private space.  Perennials were fine while the trees and shrubs were growing, but as the bones of the garden grew, the perennials soon lost their place in the sun. Add two active dogs to the mix, and…  …. we now enjoy the serenity of an escape from the concrete and buildings around us, but have lost the colour of the annuals and perennials.

This is only the beginning of June.  The garden is only beginning its journey into the growing seasons.  So when I say “Wow, amazing” to my wonderful blogger pals, it is because I’m totally enjoying life through your photography and stories.  Thank you.

Life is gray without friends, my world is full of colour, I am truly blessed.

Life is Art

Start of a new year for those of us who follow the lunar calendar. Lots of celebrating, dancing, fireworks, colour and excitement. Do we carry the colour and enthusiasm into our new year?

I’d like to think that I do. Every day I try to bring colour of some kind into my days.  Whether it is creatively crafting, writing, problem solving, I enjoy the challenge of working something through from beginning to finish.  That said, what I want to do, and what actually happens,  hmmm let’s say, the stars don’t always align.

Do I get angry, annoyed, no…   Why?   Because getting angry, stewing and simmering about something that has happened, will not remedy the situation.  PL Precept #4 – Being Annoyed Limits your Expression.   PL Precept # 5, One’s  Self is lost by being Emotional.  Let’s be clear, that doesn’t mean I never snap, or get annoyed with something or someone, I do, but I also have learned to let it go.  Once I vent, spew off the negativity, express my reaction, puff, it is like a breath of fresh air washes over me, and it’s gone.  What, may take all of a few seconds, or a minute or two at most, and its gone.

PL Precept # 17    Grasp what is Most Essential.  Believe me, I am much happier, when I am at peace with myself.  Reread that last bit if you need to, I work at being at peace with myself.  It is only when I can be at peace with myself, that I can reach out and be useful and loving to someone else.  If we live our lives being angry, then we are not going to achieve love and peace for others, because it hasn’t begun within ourselves.

PL Precept #15   All is a Mirror.

Be content, be happy, share that love and happiness with others.

We are all blessed with the gift of life, love and the tools to maintain and express this love.

Life (Living) is an art form

May sunshine bless each and every day of the year

for each and every one of you.
