Word of the Week: Perception

path photo black and white

From a distance, a “time out” from our usual routine thoughts… what do we perceive?

“Perception appears to be automatic, but in fact it is a learned phenomenon. The world you live in including the experience of your body, is completely dictated by how you learned to perceive it. If you can change your perception, you change the experience of your body and your world.”

from the book:

Ageless Body. Timeless Mind by Deepak Chopra

What a hopeful and inspiring message this is.

I read this book several years ago; it’s one that I can highly recommend. 🙂

Written many years ago, but the insights and wisdom of this author still ring true. 

Have a Wonderful and Insightful Week!

Three Haiku Poems on the Cusp of Winter

image004

Pulling up the quilt.

Heavy snow, all through the night.

Winter on the way.

***

A chill in the air.

Wrapping my scarf, one more time.

Snowflakes from the sky.

***

A windy, cold night.

Branches strewn across the path.

Winter on the way.

PS: We had a bit of snow here in Interior BC, the past couple of days, but it’s melting now.

Winter IS on the way though.

Hope you enjoy these three haiku poems, on the cusp of this magical season to come. 

What is your weather doing? Any snow?

Have a wonderful week! 🙂
