Once upon a time, in a kingdom far away, (I always wanted to write those words) there lived a beautiful princess and a handsome prince. But this story is not about them. We already know they lived happily ever after, as is the way with such things. This cute and sweet, yet powerful and moving […]Bloggaria ~ A fairy tale of bloggers! Introduction
The Colors of Our Creative World
First things first, I’d like to wish everyone very happy holidays and a Merry Christmas.
So here’s my why about this thought of the day:
I believe the colors of our imagination are far greater (and mysterious) than simple primary templates such as nature itself illustrates. It’s the greater profusion of multiples of blendings and shadings that actually create the multilayered complexity of life (as we assume it to be).
To share ourselves more fully, when we can, it is then needed to dive deeply into this beautiful and imaginative array of colors. This be where the hidden underbelly of creativity within reality can, perhaps, more fully reveal mysteries we’re surrounded by and a part of but have yet to discover.
Whimsical? Maybe or maybe not. In any event I suggest we color ourselves as beings filled with curious curiosities. Such then may our creative thought and expressiveness be more fully formed, revealed and realized.
I wish you most well, dear creative souls. This means you, of course.
With much affection,
The Way Forward
It’s been an interesting time period, I’m thinking. There’s a palpable unease in the air filtering through our emotions, thoughts and actions.
We’re feeling uncomfortable about a wide range of things (most related to what I refer to as “a money thing” but that’s a whole n’other story) and politically speaking it doesn’t matter where you are in the whole conservative/liberal spectrum. It really doesn’t. What matters (at least to me) is that there is too much division between friends, communities, states, countries. This current state of affairs is most unhealthy – rather obviously, one would think … so how best do we move forward.
In my humble opinion I like to think it’s a matter of going back to the root of things. Nourish the base. In our case it’s families first. What can we do to positively improve our families immediate culture. After that it’s community. What can we do to positively impact others that are needing support.
So often it’s small things that make a huge difference. One person, one thing, one day at a time. This is the way forward. Not finger pointing, shaming, or blaming. Just getting out there and making what you do count. In a positive proactive way.
The strongest roots of the healthiest trees are deep and kept fertile. Time to go back to our roots. remember some basics that we each can accomplish. Values in a home environment. Support in a local community. Love and concern and action for those less fortunate. We can each become the nourishment to strengthen our human roots.
So doable. So possible. We can do this. Yes we can.
Think well of yourself. Think well of others. Begin from there,
I wish you most well,
Welcome 2018, A Look Ahead For We “Creatives”
Welcome to a new year. Currently it’s winter on my part of the planet, but for many of us it has felt like we’ve been living an entire year of winter within our creative hearts. Last year we were extremely reactive in terms of relating to negative social/news media and our overall creative input/output.
This year will bring positive changes with much greater ‘action’ as opposed to ‘reaction’, thus the nature of our ‘human cycle of changes’ or the flux occurring as a result of cause and effect continues. Many of us are exhausted from reacting to a turbulent previous year, pacing ourselves to ‘hang in there’ in those final months.
This will be a year refocusing on our future actions, ideally coming from a higher moral fiber, and most definitely coming from within our beautiful, creative thoughts and ideas.
From a macro perspective, the powerful will seek more power; the rich will seek to become richer; the poor (encompassing the majority of human life on our beautiful planet Earth – Why Is That?) will seek survival from the overreaching powerful and wealthy; and we creatives (which are found in each sector of human existence) will continue to create. Some to become more powerful, some to become rich or richer, some to make a positive difference to humanity and some because when all is said and done, regardless of the reason, we just can’t help ourselves with the need to create.
The human cycle of life is still at play in spite of our, seemingly, natural inclination towards self destruction yet I most humbly believe it can be we creatives who inspire more of us to do and be all we can be in this new year.
In the “micro” of things never forget you are unique, you are gifted, you can accomplish so very much. Just remember one thing … to believe in yourself! You are your very best supporter (as you should be) so carry on with your dreams and your goals.
Welcome to this great new year. One filled with possibilities, capabilities and potentials. We can make it so!
I wish you most well and prosperous in 2018.
The Weight of Human Gravity
We (all of us) prejudice our thinking processes with our human expectations. Consciously or not, our lives revolve around personal perspectives of how things should be or how we would like them to be, individually or socially speaking.
This is most definitely a part of the human condition. “Human Gravity” is the predilection (guided by various emotions) to weigh ourselves down with the “how comes“, “what ifs“, and “why nots” and the ever popular “it’s not fair“. But then most of us know that life isn’t intentionally unfair or fair.
The ability to reach fulfillment of our hopes, wishes and desires absolutely resides within each of us. What might be of assistance is recognizing we are in complete control of the degree of human gravity we chose to allow.
And perhaps human gravity might not become so heavy and burdensome if our view of freedom came from an expanded viewpoint. That being:
“Freedom isn’t only a thought, an ideal or an expression. Freedom is allowing the manifestation of all our human being/senses to open completely to life experiences, witnessed by and with full and complete cooperation from heart & soul! Now that’s freedom, unfettered and released. There is no gravity. None what-so-ever!” ~Plh
Wishing you a wonderful holiday season. One with a minimum amount of human gravity.
With sincere affection,
And So It is Today
Today’s not yesterday and it’s also not tomorrow, even though it seems we spend part of each day dwelling on those past and potential future events.
Perhaps it may be wise to live more in the ‘right now’ of things where we can and do effect, potentially many, of the events shaping our everyday lives.
“When all is said and done
what today we have begun
is the single thing
that tomorrow brings
through yesterday’s recall
those memories from us all.”~Plh

I wish you well.
Seasons of Change
Wisdom enters gently
within these changing days
to always walk among us
in myriads of ways.
With change does come renewal
as nature always knows,
and the seasons of our lifetimes
ever onward flows.
Thank You For The Song You’re Singing
Everyday wisdom is indeed hidden in plain sight, but it is humanity’s songs of life, each unique to an individual that points the way, often illuminating a hidden wisdom, revealing a greater understanding and awareness for many, and so …
” I thank each of you for the songs your singing. May you sing loud and strong in your life sharing wisdom and beauty with each beat of your heart.” ~ Plh
Thank you for stopping by, Have the best weekend possible. I wish you well.
With sincere affection,
Darkness in the Light of Day
In the still of every night
The stars may still be shining bright
But Darkness in the light of day
Makes hard to keep our fears away!
I do not know from when to where
Cannot conceive how we can’t care.
What we’ve become to darken ways
darkening all tomorrows days.
Where have gone the love and joy
for every single girl and boy.
STOP, stop no more I say
THIS, this is not the way.
Brothers, Sisters are we all
All together or we fall
and fall and fall
and fall and … fall!
Tomorrow’s Mysteries and Our Dance of Life
In a poetic manner one might say we dance our way through life, in spite of our concern for tomorrow’s unknown and the burden of those heavy laden pieces of our yesterdays creating missteps within the flow our momentum.
Yet our momentum will still carry us forward. It cannot be halted. It is the unknown that continues to propels us – the hidden mystery of our purpose. Truly. It is this same mystery that inspires. The creative/imaginative power inside our heart and soul incessantly resisting negative tides, overcoming, moving beyond a myriad of unanticipated obstacles in our way – along our way.
Never doubt your individual power and ability to overcome and move onward. It’s always there, just waiting for you to activate. Know that your unique dance of life is singular in it’s purpose, stronger than you can imagine, blending as need be with others revealing diverse and exciting discoveries which lay at the universal heart of life’s mysteries.
“Sing me to the moon
then love me far beyond,
all of this and more
Life’s universal song.” ~Plh
“Believe in yourself, your individual self worth, understand that your uniqueness is the special gift of life. You are far more than you can imagine, making your worth priceless.”
Thank you for being you, thank you for stopping by,
