Distant Thoughts

Distant thoughts
I could hear the rustling of the leaves
As the wind capriciously blew through the trees
Not affected by the gravity pull my spirit lifted high
Like a bird swishing its wings on the face of the sky
My longing gaze on a forth coming smile
A love extending a distance of a thousand miles
Outstretched arms touching of souls holding tight
Beneath a romantic raven velvet starlit night
I shall fly upon the wing of a vast silver bird of love
Gliding through the air and white fluffy clouds above
I shall dream of land so far away and make it a reality.


What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow: Our life is the creation of our mind.

Buddha (563 BC-483 BC) Founder of Buddhism

Watch your thoughts, for they become words.Watch your words, for they become actions.Watch your actions, for they become habits.Watch your habits, for they become character.Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.

We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.
Buddha quotes

Vancouver ... The visual memory!

This was an exciting trip for me. I had never travelled this kind of distance alone, therefore it was an adventure.
My friends were there to greet me when I arrived at the airport. Between the three of them they managed to show me the sights.

I was invited to a Thanksgiving Dinner. The mother of the house had a lot to be thankful for. Her son had a horrific car accident in May this year. The doctors had brought him back to life again 7 times and here he was sitting with us at the table. Sometimes miracles do happen.

These are some of my photographs from my trip to Vancouver. Vancouver has the best of all worlds. The mountains ... the parks ... the Pacific Ocean ... the great city ... the bays ... the beaches and the people.
the Photographs working down are
Wood sculptures on Grouse Mountain
Mountain views
