The Indian

While out and about the other day, I saw this. It’s the Indian, one of the coolest motorcycles I’ve ever seen.

Wouldn’t it be fun to cruise the open road with no particular destination in mind on this?

Be good to yourself and others. Namaste’

TBT and Halloween

I haven’t been to the blogosphere for a while but today I wanted to observe Throwback Thursday and Halloween … double duty, if you will.

These images are ones I took a few years back in Tucson. Our neighbor was a single Dad of three and each year him and the kids would go all out for Halloween. Dad would take the kids shopping and they got to choose the decorations they wanted. Then it was their job to do the decorating. I think the oldest was only 11 and he was definitely the director of their endeavors. Such cool kids!!!

I always loved to watch the magic unfold and each day as I would walk the dogs, I got to see the evolution of their front yard. They would ask me what I thought and I always gave them a round of applause for what they had done. And rightly so. It was well deserved.

Theirs was the best house on the street. I hope they’re still bringing Halloween enjoyment to the neighborhood.

Trick or Treat! Be good and be safe. Namaste’

Wild Abandon

IMG_20150413_195311

Take your shoes off. Go outside. Feel the earth under your feet. Throw a tennis ball for your dog. Admire the trees and be thankful for the oxygen they give. Look up at the sky (not while driving … haha). Laugh uncontrollably. If there’s even the slightest chance of getting something that will make you happy, risk it.

Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, those with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let their spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this world a better than you found it.

It just might be time to live with wild abandon.

Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

 

Look for Signs

A few years ago, I started looking for signs. But not your basic street signs. I’m talking about signs that the Universe provides when you ask for them.

Try this experiment:

Ask for something small to start with, like seeing a red flower, a butterfly, or a certain color of car, etc., as you go about your daily life. Put a time limit on it, like 48 hours or even further out, but don’t make it too far in the distance or you might forget you asked and when it shows up, you won’t recognize it. Remember, we have to have “eyes to see.” Is it coincidental that my blog is named Eyes to See? You decide.

I have lots of instances where the Universe has provided. One day I asked to see a yellow butterfly, so I simply asked and went about my business. The next day I had to go to the supermarket and was walking down the cookie aisle when there it was!

Printed right on the packag04.18.17butterflye of Oreo cookies was a huge yellow butterfly!!!

What’s the lesson here? Be specific in your request. Maybe I should have asked to see a real live butterfly??? But hey, the Universe answered my call, didn’t it? The key here is to ask and then let go of “how” it’s going to show up. Just look for the signs!

(And who created the Universe? The One who sees all, knows all and loves all. He is also the One who said, “Ask and ye shall receive.)”

Succulent Horse

Yes, I know it’s been a while. I’ve been really busy with too many things to mention. Ugh!

This image is one I took the liberty of playing with. And you know me … I love to play! I used an image that I took of some succulent plants, applied a cartoon effect and used a horse overlay found in the BeFunky app. BeFunky is a very cool application for special effects on images. You can make collages, cards and all kinds of wonderful things.

I have the premium version ($24.95/yr) but you can do plenty of creative things in the free version. It’s also available as an Android app.

Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’
