Positive Imagery Messages

Keeping in the same vein of positive thoughts here are some photos that I saw that;

make me smile,
make me think

speak listen love

Dream to make it so

People See,
but they do not Observe!

Sunbathe like Nobody is Watching

.

Each of us Sees differently, what did your eye find first?
green leaves, rain drops and single yellow flower

Look for the little things in life they will surprise you in their simply beauty, rain drops like a breath in the cold morning

Live Simpler
Look Closer
See what others Miss! 

rain drops in water, close up

R.., I included the photo of Zelda for D..
hoping it makes you both smile!

These are my goals for the rest of my life. Does this mean I want to live alone and grumpy like a Hermit in the woods. NO !

I do wish to live in the Bush up North, live simpler, create my own food, build my own Home and enjoy Life. Since some have wondered, some have criticised and some have complimented. Well now this post will be filled with links on a regular basis that show that others have the same dreams and aspirations.

So if your offended, go back to your HUGE carbon footprint life, walk away now! Others will find some of the links to be enlightening and peaceful.

Gun Control real Stats

True Costs of Gun Restrictions to Law Abiding Citizens !!
beware this is real, not political fiction
Australian Gun Law Update�

Here’s a thought to warm some of your hearts….
From: Ed Chenel, A police officer in Australia

Hi Yanks, I thought you all would like to see the real
figures from Down Under.

It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by a new law to
surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by our own
government, a program costing Australia taxpayers
more than $500 million dollars.

The first year results are now in:
Australia-wide, homicides are up 6.2 percent,
Australia-wide, assaults are up 9.6 percent;
Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!

In the state of Victoria…..
lone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent.(Note that
while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not
and criminals still possess their guns!)
While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady
decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since the criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the elderly, while the resident is at home.

Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public
safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in ‘successfully ridding Australian society of guns….’ You won’t see this on the American evening news or hear your governor or members of the State Assembly disseminating this information.

The Australian experience speaks for itself. Guns in the
hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws affect only the law-abiding citizens.

Take note Americans, before it’s too late!
Will you be one of the sheep to turn yours in?
WHY? You will need it.

FORWARD TO EVERYONE ON YOUR EMAIL LIST. [I DID]
DON’T BE A MEMBER OF THE SILENT MAJORITY.
BE ONE OF THE VOCAL MINORITY WHO WON ‘T STAND FOR NONSENSE

Barnyard Textures

Since I have been waxing poetic lately due to remembrances of times long ago and re-collecting people from my past today I indulge myself. Sorting papers and pictures from my past I thought that giving a go today with my little Cell Phone, would be a good re-start to create photography.

Island

I am never as alone as when surrounded by Family and Strangers
~Wild_E 2013

Island in a Sea of People

Lonely, said I was lonely to someone recently;

Was told to look inside;
always felt like an outsider
always felt alone unless with someone special, Male or Female, special is special
when sick
when injured
always alone when out in the world of Man
with Relatives who are excluding
judging – cause problems

Never Alone
in the Bush
in the wilds
observing nature
camping
hiking
exploring
or with a real friend
or hanging out and playing with my Dog, my Fur Child

Perhaps,

Alone, alienated, outcast, set apart, apart sometimes rejected;  would be better words to use than Lonely. Either way you look at it, it is not like most people feel I dare say. Since I have been living on my own for over 3 years now, perhaps 4 years, it is safe to say that: Yes I do get Lonely sometimes,  Yes I do feel Alone.

This happens when I am near others, like a City or Town though put me in the Bush and for months I am not Alone or even Lonely unless I want to show someone something particularly nice or interesting.  

odd person out

it is time to shut the door!

Allergies

Allergies;
yesterday I was at an important event in my life, sad though important.
Too bad people can still not get it through their stubborn, thick skulls to not wear.. perfume, cologne .. some of them were wearing it like a shroud at a distance of over 3 ft-5ft affecting others.

Today… I suffer, it will take another 2 days to get over it and only because of the Natural Allergy pill I took!

Take a bath,

………..have a shower,

……………………………..wash..

—>                                         .. no need to layer yourself or spray yourself with that junk, it Hurts others !!!

pain … suffer … hurt … effect … joints … hot … miserable .. sitting here in the Sun, not enjoying the day, damnation ..

Emotions

Lonely was me up to last month don’t get me wrong, love the Dog but she can not talk, then bam friends out of the woodwork are showing up. Sweet..

While Sitting on the Couch chatting with a very Dear and Special Friend R, from back in the Days of my Military time in Germany, looking up info on the computer and Bam.. D & M Facebook message me! They were also my Military Buddies, close military Friends actually.

A few weeks ago, P from BC, two months before another friend P from up North, said move up here now or come up in a SHFT situation. As well, re-connecting with a few others from the Military. The clouds are parting and the Sun is peaking through. I welcome the changes, I welcome what the Universe is now tossing my way, thank you Universe/God/Great Spirit, truly thank you!

Wow.. nice changes

Sadly

It has been an emotional week and a half for me, losing my last Grandparent, that is 3 grandparents in the last Year and 3 months. Lost 2 Uncles, 1 Aunt, 2 cousins, my Mother is dying of an incurable condition and has maybe 2 yrs left, Dad’s not doing good from the diabetes and medication that he took, 7 military buddies in the last Year alone and one was shot by the RCMP while in the backyard at his BBQ. Then finding out that 35+ Military buddies have gone already due to a medley of reasons, PTSD related, medical from service issues, to name just two reasons . Personally for me some weird Medical conditions and situations in the last few years, take a toll on this old boy.

On the positive side though with the positive connections and very special connections at that, my Heart is Lighter and brimming with emotion. Now being a Dude, not sure how to even deal with emotions properly, but muddling along.

R said open up, be more communicable  be more emotional, share, open your heart, express your feelings to the world. OK,, but damn shutting the door again is like trying to shut a door to the barn in a Wind Storm! Sharing is fine, but right now the full barn doors are open and I would prefer to have that little Human sized door to be open then allow the bigger barn doors to open when I need them to be. I had been opening up and sharing since starting this blog, which is just for me by the way, so ..

Now sharing seems to be all I do, yuk.. touchy feely stuff ! Soon I will be putting flowers in a vase and looking for lace curtains to decorate with. Naw.. just want to plant veggies and stuff in the earth and make my own home from the materials on the land, build a home from scratch, for the future.

100% honest feelings here below caution the weirdo from within is loose from the cage!

Emotions;
afraid of breaking down tomorrow when I deliver my Eulogy about my Grandfather
afraid of loosing touch with the people who are now in my life
afraid of sharing too much and loosing them as well (O.. just like now, btw)
>afraid of getting all choked up just looking at photos of people I admire like General Dallaire at the Museum the other day (met him in Cyprus)
afraid of outside events tearing it all up
on and on… see whine here !

well for a fellow who was not afraid of anything before, had only 3 emotions, bweww… i is dun tuckered out with these emotions and stuff !
so.. open mouth, insert foot seems to be the order of the day for me
so.. if your still reading, that is just some of what I felt that I needed to share, if you’re not chased away by now, why not.. LOL

(ps wish I could spell as good as I can think of words or the level that I read at, plus the whole grammar thing)
ps… again.. wish WordPress would not edit out all proper spacing and replace it with dumb code.. so here I sit again editing it back so it looks normal.. waste of time !!
