Illusion

library wall

Our eyes make of what we wish to see.

We see a library full of literature and education.

Doors partially opening inviting us to come in and experience this knowledge.

However, this is nothing more than an architectural model, within a picture frame, of a library with fake books and two passages at either side leading nowhere except the imaginary.  An optical illusion.

They are mirror reflections giving us a false perception of reality.

Our lives are filled with illusions. What is real and what is not.  It is easy to be mislead.

After all, life is an illusion!

Munich Germany Train Station

Munich Germany’s Central Train Station’s Location is for the Adventurous & Simple Travelers

29_Munich Train Station

Imagine eating the most delicious ham and cheese or Camembert and cucumber sandwich between two scrumptious all grain wheat breads in a train station, as you observe the excitement of travelers rushing past you on their way to their destinations in Munich Germany. In the meantime, you have been captivated by all the energy and you still have not stepped outside the station to a world of pure adventure, history and culture that awaits you, in this great city, all the while in a train station. You are fascinated by its grandeur, diversity of shops, food, its function and the smell.

As We Contemplate Some Peace and Freedom

20160911_082858The water ever so calm

My Thoughts so clear

The seagulls breeze by spanning their wings

Free at Last!

The boats idle in the wake

The buoy is left behind as the engines roar pass them in total excitement, into the open sea, its vastness, in infinite directions.

Ah, Freedom!

The coconut trees stand overlooking the water , as if they were guarding their territory with such pride, knowing that where they stand is such a divine place for they know the greatness of their being, their nature.

The sun glitters on the water in the horizon.

Its warmth illuminates my being.

You can almost hear it sizzle on the water while a bird crows in the background, reaching out to its fellow mates as they are all too thrilled, and respond back.

Oh yes, free to communicate to one another in their language. Free, to express in a song.

A fish flies out of the water in total joy as it swiftly dives in and wanders on.

The flight!

20160911_102009

A breeze begins to blow past my face as I hear the branches of the palm trees briskly brush up against each other.

The smell of the air

The peace!

Endless Lifetimes

As time passes, I feel I have loved you in endless lifetimes.

20160731_174708

As I watch my heart flow with the clear water stream, I can’t help but wonder where our heart has wandered.   As it glides through new adventures, where is it going to now?

20160731_174751 20160731_174814 20160731_175007

 

 

 

The passage is clear, surrounded by all of God’s fruits as it meanders through the green brushes sweeping over the water, going with the flow.  Allowing itself just to be in the NOW.  Whatever happens it will keep pumping towards full happiness and LOVE.  We have been through many lifetimes together, which has brought us to this reality.  God only knows how many thousands of lifetimes it took to reach this moment in our lives.

So the heart continues to flow with all its ups and downs through this illusion we call life.

20160731_175054

Where we are headed now, God only knows.  I can only say that the ride has been  fulfilling and await the endless Love this era has in store for us.

As the heart finds its Truth.

Serenity

Early Sunday morning in Miami Beach.

Out for some morning exercise.

Surrounding me, peace and tranquility.

You can hear but the wind faintly rustle against my ear.

The morning breeze and coolness make for such a pleasant summer moment.

Seagulls aimlessly wander about, ever so often.

The smell of the ocean, and its salt.

The sun has risen from beyond the abyss while it meander’s behind some clouds, it tries to poke its great round eye out.

20160619_074638

A few spectators watch while they capture the morning serenity and soak in the water while they take it all in.

20160619_075201

The equipment awaits me.

20160619_075230

I couldn’t ask for a more perfect start to my day.

 

 

 

Horse Country

Welcome to Horse Country!

Horse Country

An area in Miami that many may not be aware that even exists.  It’s not really known, for it is in the outskirts of the city.  It is not an area tourists would pay to take a tour of yet may like to know that not everything is along the East of Highway US 1.  Miami is not only buildings and night life it too has some country living in the suburbs.  As the city continues to grow, peace and relaxation can still be found, you just need to know where to go.  Among all the hustle and bustle horses wander among the green acres not dominated by urban sprawl.  It is nice to take a drive through here when you want to change your mind a bit and breathe a bit of air.

There are horse farms, lamas, chickens, cattle and landscape nurseries all surrounded by a residential area and churches. Not to mention that yearly the Oktoberfest is celebrated in this neck of the woods.

Whenever you are in the mood to take a drive away from the city and maybe are heading down South to the Keys, swing by and see what else there is to see in Miami.

The Gate to the West

 Golden Gate 

Spice! Scarlet Red! You are cold yet hot! 

Rivets and bolts intertwine your spine.

You are our daily destiny to near and far away places. 

Your arms span between two bodies of land and embrace red, orange and yellow shadows of golden sunsets. 

Golden Gate Bridge wallpaper #19172

Your salty scented breezes briskly pass through our hair and skin. 

Your grandeur and beauty continues to amaze us.  Other worlds come to visit you. 

You stand so proud! 

You are the backbone of this colorful city. 

You are its gateway and its strength!

Love: A Father’s Eternal Passage

FatherGuidingLightQuote1Love is what I give to you.

The Love of a Father, which always kindles inside.  The love that will NEVER die, for it is eternal.

When you wish to feel my presence, just listen to the music of the masters.  You will feel me here for you know that music is my passion. Find the time to share your ideas.  Create for it is why we are here.  You SHALL find an abundance of love if you follow your passion.

I may not have always known how to express my love except for the only way I knew how.  Remember my nagging and whining for it is the way I knew how to express my love, my concerns and how I hoped you would hear me.

I left you with tools on how to survive.  This is what a father does, right?  I taught you to walk so you would know the way.

It is my duty to start you on your path, life’s journey.  This is what I know to do.

Forgive me if I lost each other at times but my work was essential and so I was tired.  I have only been a parent once in my life.  I guess I did the best I could.

Teach my grandchildren that there is nothing greater in life than love.  It is ALL you will take with you and not the material things.

Therefore, plant your seed and blossom for this you need to thrive.  It is the temple within you!

Remember to water along the way for strength, is sure to follow.

Share your journey along the way, it is I which WILL lead you, my light has not burned out.

Listen to your heart for I shall continue to grow with you here.  My physical being may not be here but my soul definitely continues to glow.

Listen to the music for you shall always find me here.

So, I leave you now but remember time does not exist.  Soon one day we shall be together for the light in front of me glows with glory!

We do what we think is best. We do as our parents would want for us to do.  Remember, we are human and we will wander into our destiny’s path, which is what we came to fulfill.  Life is difficult yet if we listen then we will always understand why and what we each came here for, after all each journey is different and we are here to learn from each other.  Our existence here is but a flash before our eyes, so make the best of it.  Your light within your heart will always glimmer, this is the eternal love a father leaves us with.  The light which will never burn.  As we continue in our life’s path remember, one day you too will leave your light behind to continue glowing. So set a good example of love so that we may all learn from this.

“My father is an angel that will always live on.  His souls existence continues to carry the light.  The light which he instilled in me.  The kindness, gentleness and unconditional love towards all of LIFE.  May God bless you always!”

To my father and all fathers, Happy Fathers Day!

Forces of Nature

Nature really is wonderful!  It never seizes to amaze me how a lizard can change its skin tone to blend in with the environment, camouflaging itself.

And how such things as gravity takes over no matter if we want it to or not.  It’s so much more overpowering that from it great inventions such as, electricity can be achieved from the power of water.

There is no doubt that the Forces of Nature are greater than us and that there has to be something greater than us to achieve such beauty and perfection!
