PL calendar day 30

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 will go.

Thursday Doors

 

This delightful learning tool was in a thrift shop.  Each door has a different key, keys are included.  The child learns to find the key and open the door it belongs to. Or goes to the door to be opened, then finds the key to open it.. then lock it.  If only I had picked it up when I saw it.  I had never seen one before.

next… a window view of the alps below.

Enjoy your travels today.  Walk through a few doors.  Create your own adventure.

Thursday Doors – 9.20

 

Charm of days gone by.  There is so much to take in when you travel a back road. You have to know that you will not get anywhere fast, you simply accept the moments of discovery.  This was the scene that beckoned loud enough for me to stop and actually get out.  It is aged, tired and worn, but yet it is standing proud. Wind, snow, ice, rain, yes they have left their mark, but the place, for me , still had a quiet dignity.  It stood, just off a paved road, but the surrounding land, was rich and bore the remnants of a bountiful crop.

I left today, open to the possibilities, and the Universe  provided  “seek and you shall find”  PL Precept #1   Life is Art

The day was a happy one, and totally productive in a very creative way.  I hope you enjoyed the same.

Thursday doors -windows

houses 2x

Good morning everyone, the holidays are fast approaching.  We are busy trying to settle back into a routine, and I am once more running the roads on errands.  I am especially trying to beat the rush that will take place closer to the week-end, it will be impossible to find parking in the shopping mall parking lots.  Already there is a sea of cars as far as the eye can see in the bigger centers near us.

Norm’s Thursday doors, is a huge interest to me, doors being so much a part of my life over the years.  I am a keen  buff on older homes, doors, windows and all that go along in the inspiration of my creative spirit.

The I found this collection of hand stitched works of art, sitting waiting to be framed in a  thrift shop of all places.  Someone had spent hours carefully building these charmers stitch by stitch.  That to me is a true love of houses, windows and doors. Having attempted at one time this craft, I had full appreciation for the hours spent on putting these together.

If I have learned anything during the last few weeks, it is that what we see on the outside is not necessarily what is going on “inside”  Our bodies house our “souls” the vibrant and vital energy this is our “lives”.  The windows and doors, are the way we look out, and how we maneuver the in and outs of our journey through this life.  In some ways they reflect our personalities .. many times, they are merely shelters.  It is what goes  on, inside the house, that makes it a home.

PL (Perfect Liberty) celebrates every 21st of the month, with a Thanksgiving ceremony.  The service is dedicated to giving our appreciation and gratitude for the blessings we have received through the month.  Think today as you read this, just how many blessings you have received in the last few days.  There are always positives, we need only be receptive to them.

At first I was sad that the beautiful work someone had done was now in a Thrift Shop, then I realized that it was the joy in stitching that was the person’s pleasure, and now, I was happy in the discovery.  Sharing his/her work with you, is also a “happy”… May the many little windows and doors open for you today.

Find the sunshine, find the happy, in your day.  You will be blessed in many ways.

retreat 10.7.17a

Imagine the sun streaming in on a cool fall day.  Isn’t there something wonderful about the way, light is transformed when it penetrates and shines through  a stained glass panel.

even the high ceiling is mirroring the colourful hues, giving the  room an aura of light.  When the organist plays, what divine inspiration must flow from his hands to the organ itself.  A true delight for all who are embraced by the sound,

Sunday Oct. 1- musing

window to the pastA window from the past

looks out into another world

when looking in,

there is left only decay and ruin

I drove along the highway today,

and saw where a building such as the one above

once alive and vibrant

was now shuttered and vacant

the vegetation was fast reclaiming the

once well tended lawn.

I had a fleeting  memory of days gone by

and wondered how come I’d missed

the encroachment of another phase

for the sign, standing tall near the street

announced that soon, a multi unit would be going up

The world is changing, and changing fast

where once we planned and looked forward

to a yard of our own,

now the buildings offer small rooms. and many units

to accommodate a number of families

where once, only one family lived,

and children ran and played with wild abandon

safe in their own backyards.

What happened?  Where is that time in space gone?

What was I doing?  How did I  miss it?

October 1st. in a flash it will be the 31st

lazy day

There is something to be said about a cold sunny day, when you can see the shimmering bling of the icicles as they hang from the roof edge.  I have been trying to listen to the good advice from friends, “stay in, stay out of the cold, REST”, I think I’m soon going to be able to say, its been 4 weeks now! cough, cough, splutter, sneeze, wheeze and darn I’m tired.

windows-iceThis is a much better shot of the beautiful sculptured ice.  The sky was the beckoning blue that makes me want to be outside.  I don’t care it is cold, I’m happy outside, I layer up and I’m toasty warm.. the air is so fresh, crisp and deliciously brisk.

Thanks for the great feedback on the Sludge project, thought I’d show you a sneak peek.

This is a piece of a cover that I was very taken with.  I liked it so much I kept the magazine for ages.  Doing these “Art” journals has given me a new way to display and keep the pictures I like, without keeping a whole magazine.  Eventually some time in the future, I will add to the pages.. this is the fun of it all.. there is no rush, no deadlines, just a great way to have quality time with myself doing “stuff” I like.
