It takes effort and willpower to maintain a healthy body and wholesome outlook. Restraint is needed on the amount of food and what we drink. Balancing, exercise activity against the intake of calories consumed. Learning what is beneficial for us and how to cope with the stress of modern life.

People respond positively to a smile. When we are in pain or suffering in any way it is not easy to smile and a stressed look is often interpreted as unfriendliness. So it is very important not to look dejected but smile and not complain. Do not burden other people with your problems.

An unsmiling face is not always a sign that a person is unfriendly. People in unfamiliar surroundings, amongst strangers, can feel pressures the locals are unaware of. They need a friendly smile and a kind word of reassurance. Vary rarely will this bring a negative response.

To travel in foreign lands makes one realise simple things like shopping for groceries can be stressful. It is easy to get lost or commit a faux pas in a foreign land. So a traveller is cautious and can look unfriendly.

A smile can transform an old wrinkly face into a charming beautiful one. A smile makes the whole interconnected world sparkle. We realise we are one in the cosmic creation and all the silly differences vanish.

A Fantastic Art Gallery.

The food and the views are great at the café.

You don’t have to die to go to heaven I am in heaven, live and pumping. I am back home on the Gold Coast biking down to the beach. There is about 20 km in  both directions from Burleigh of flat bike track adjacent to a string of beaches. I have been about six months without my pushbike and it is good to be back in the saddle and visiting my favourite gym just across the road from Burleigh beach.
There are beaches from Surfers Paradise, a tourist play ground, to Coolangatta and further on north and south.

This post is in the Tweed Valley a short drive from the beaches.

This house is in the Tweed Valley a short drive from the beaches.

It is call the Gold Coast because of the golden sand, or is it because of the bustling entertainment and commercial interest there.
This is the best of both worlds the American style theme parks and then there is the lush hinterland rain forest, the high escarpment has beautiful views of the coast.
It is only a short drive to Tweed with its lush World Heritage rain forests and dramatic mountain ranges and more unspoiled world-famous surfing point breaks beaches.

This spider has a wonderful view through a gallery window.

Yesterday we, with friends, visited a remarkable art gallery nestled in the beautiful Tweed Valley. Visit Pauline’s blog to get a detailed view of this gallery.

As usual I got carried away, inspired by the project. I joined in the fun like all the other children.

I was feeling so inspired, encouraged by our two, too kind friends while waiting for lunch, I did some sketching.  Also for inspiration see Zeebra post for inspirational people.

We are now planning to do some trips back into the area to practice our art. As June is very talented and as you probably know Pauline has created some really beautiful paintings. As for Rex we will supply him with the equipment and we may get a surprise.
I will keep you posted and so will our pommepal.

The Blues

Fitness out of the fog.

Fitness out of the fog.

I woke up with the blues the Robert Johnson blues. No sun-beams flooding through my window, it was cool and foggy out there. I knew exactly what to do, to sing is the thing. I popped out of bed like a Champaign cork with the bubbles of enthusiasm pushed me to Pauline’s door. “Come on Sweet Heart, out of the cot we got things to do, me and you!” She needed no prompting, she knew what great opportunities a foggy morning brought.

Professionals knows fogs are photo opportunities.

Professionals knows fogs are photo opportunities.

I could not keep her from the Burl Ives ‘Foggy foggy dew’.  On with our cloths and up up and away like Wonder Woman and Clark Kent, I am being mild-mannered and modest. Don’t get carried away, we took off in the car; I want this to be believable. We parked at the lake and took flight on foot. Two fast guns shooting all in sight, here are some of my trophies. To give you an idea of what Lake Burley Griffin, Canberra is like at seven, on a foggy morn. Pauline will show more in her blog and put more information.

Today is first day of Canberra’s Floriade day.

We return the sun now shines,

We return the sun now shines,

Christen and Spencer are visiting us to see this spectacular flower display.  After breakfast it was back to the lake but by now parking was limited but Pauline had it all planed to we parked at the gallery and walked back across the bridge. I just go with the flow, wu wei, Pauline is the planer. I go with the flow and trust my luck, I got heaps of that.

At the gate our meeting place.

At the gate our meeting place.

Meet back here at the gate at 12.30 if we get separated Pauline suggested. I was back at the trysting place early and people watched for ten minutes and they were ten minutes early.

I suggested back in a taxi as we had already done a fair hike. Pauline had also taken the dog for its walk while I did the washing up and set the fire, ready for a match tonight. No taxis allowed into Floriade area well it was not in Pauline’s plan anyway. What happened to my luck well we needed the exercise. Here are some photos to give you glimpse of Floriade.

Entrance to the museum.

Entrance to the museum.

We went to the National Museum of Australia, as they have a choice menu and it is a fantastic monument  of architectural splendour. We savoured delectable dishes while gazing out the windows on to the lake, the fountain was now pumping and sail boats and ferry were out there enhancing the scenery.

Feasting the eyes while savouring lunch, this is true nourishment.

Then explored this fair dinkum  Aussie museum .

With a couple of rest stops at the Revolving theatre with Aussie history and a lay-back relax in the there showing Aussie life style. My camera was clicking like a cricket hyped up on coke.  Get an eye full of this sample.

Next stop the Nishi building.

We drive to New Acton area for Cappuccino.

 We enjoyed the day, especially as we were with our friends. Back home they watched TV and chatted while I caught up with my blog friends, but get carried away with a You Tube video in Zeebra’s post. That got me tuned in on the Cajun swamp music and the Blues. All the old guys that I have enjoyed throughout the years, from our wild days, to now when the music still lifts us up and gets us revving.

 I was there with those blokes jamming, winding up with J. J. Cale till after midnight.  It was a real blues day, a blue skies day. With good friends who have travelled the world as show people, both musicians. Spencer actually jammed with Jagger when he was only a pebble not a big rolling stone.

A walk on the wild side.

Pauline’s walk on the wild side.

Change to Active.

This is really wild.

This is really wild.

In past posts I quoted The Buddha as saying all things are subject to change and I advise going with the flow of nature. We cannot deny the fact that all things change and water flows to the lowest place. Now you see me hiking uphill. So was that a lot of hot air? No I am letting off steam to lower the pressure, slow the heart rate and keep me fit. It is not exactly steam it is sweat, as exercise is not easy but it has its rewards.

After a walk a cool off is great for the muscles.

After a walk a cool off is great for the muscles.

Hiking up hill, swimming and bike riding are good cardio vascular exercises any thing that gets you puffing is good for the heart and circulation.  Low impact is best like swimming, cycling and the cross trainer in the gym are perfect examples. Start off at a comfortable pace and duration and gradually increase the resistance, cadence and length of time as your fitness improves. Like Yin and Yang a balance is needed. It has to be hard enough to make you puff but not to the point where you are panting and cannot talk. People with heart and health problems need a doctor’s advice on this.

Pauline enjoying a bike ride.

Hatha yoga, Pilates and tai chi are good for flexibility. Again gradually feel your way it is easy to injure muscles by jerky movements or pushing them beyond their limits. Do not hold your breath, breathing is important. Slowly go as far as you can and hold this position for at least ten deep breaths. Do three times it will be easier on the next stretch. This is how to loosen up.  If you have some disability or injury work around it, the rest of your body can be kept supple while the problem part has time to repair.

Not as good a out on the road.

Not as good as out on the road.

Weights and resistance exercises are needed to strengthen bones and build muscle. At my age I want low intensity that is light weights and more repetitions. The older one gets the harder it becomes to build muscle, but muscle condition can be improved and strengthened no matter how old. No matter what age or condition you are in, a sensible exercise program is a health benefit. Assuming you are not athletic take it easy. Pick a weight you can easily lift five times and do that three times. In gym jargon that is five reps x three sets. When you find you can do ten reps x three sets. It is time for a slightly heavier weight. This will improve your strength and build muscle.

Olga challenges herself machine walking.

Olga challenges herself machine walking.

There are three types of exercise, stretching for flexibility, cardio vascular for the heart, lungs and general fitness and resistance for strength. Exercise combined with a healthy balanced diet is the way to health. Balance the types of food and balance the amount the calories you burn in exercise against your intake of food. It is a complex study getting fit and one must not get fanatical or obsessed worrying too much. As worry creates stress and has adverse effects in every part of the body.

25 minutes varying the resistance gets the heart pumping.

25 minutes varying the resistance gets the heart pumping.

Live an active life doing things you enjoy. Eat slowly savouring wholesome natural foods. Highly processed food often have too much salt or sugar added, artificial colouring and preservatives. Beneficial parts removed and other parts concentrated. Salt, sugar and fat are like drugs, we become addicted to foods containing them and lose our sense of taste. Commercial enterprises are more interested in making a profit than your health. You have to be responsible for your own health.  Do not leave your health to doctors, medicines and pills, they are a last resource.

Twilight, between the night and sunrise.

Twilight, between the night and sunrise.

Ocean of Joy.

A sole surfes.

A sole surfer.

The earth orbits around the sun. The knight dresses in golden armor, refreshed after a vacation in the land of oblivion. Beta waves with amplitudes of varying frequency signal consciousness this is a better way to be, to feel, to think, and to act.

Oh what a beautiful morning.

Oh what a beautiful morning.

The big swell, light offshore wind, the surf is up. I am up and the conditions are ideal for being with nature. My bare feet touch the wet sand, I earth-out, bearing my board to face the challenging waves. The battle starts the turbulent white-water has to be overcome, to reach the trysting place, where the engagement takes place. This is the challenging moment where man and nature connect, to go with the flow,in the now. Wu wei, this is the breaking, or the making moment of ecstasy, living in the now, with the force of nature.

Early birds of a feather.

Early birds of a feather.

People fight life wanting, grasping, and hording not understanding all material things are impermanent and everything transient. Like the passing wave, we can only go, with the flow of nature. The time is now, the wave will not wait, life is now do not waste it. The most important thing is what you are doing now; the most important person is the one that is with you now. Travel light laiden down with pockets full of coins the surfer would drown. Some possessions we use, the ones we do not use are a burden needing protection and maintenance. To the needy and the greedy flaunting wealth causes envy, jealousy, and hate. Enjoying nature’s free gifts, sharing our gifts is in tune with nature way.

Just another day in Paradise.

Just another day in Paradise.

Beginning your day in the twilight you will catch the sun’s brilliant display. This is the photographers ‘Golden Hour’ at sunrise and the brief time of long shadows and warm glowing colour or sometimes misty affects, a challenge to capture and keep to share with others. Any activity that inspires you to rise early full of enthusiasm will enhance your life. I have always been an up with the birds sort of person. I enjoyed my work, there was no drudgery in doing what I liked, building dams, power stations, bridges, pipelines and roads. An occupation should be chosen that does service, rather than harm. That was my pleasure in getting my nourishment working not purely for money.

Self sculpture, Jack and hot little board.

As a youth I got an adrenalin buzz riding the crane hook or feeding my ego up in the purlins. Today safety regulations have taken the excitement and the expertise out of rigging and construction work. A young man has to get his excitement from less practical activities. Does the way you ‘earn a crust’ bring you joy and satisfaction? Do you work for ‘big bickies’ to buy status symbols and luxuries beyond what you need? I am not averse to earning large sums of money as long as it is earned in an ethical way and spent on unselfish things.

A boy at heart.

A boy at heart.

At the end of the day what have we achieved, can we sleep with an untroubled mind? A joyous day full of good activity aids a restful night. Enjoy today in a pleasant way for it will pass. Leave no more than foot prints in your travels and take only pictures. Have respect for age, Mother Earth is extremely old. Some say about 5 billion years others only 6,ooo years, let us not get diverted, extremely old we can all agree on. We must be mindful of the beta wave frequency and amplitude.

Natures sacredcathedral.

Natures cathedral.

Take a walk in natures garden hear her music the rustle of the leaves caressed by the gentle breeze aware of her breath of life. Breath in the life-giving air, exhale the negative waste. You can focus on your breath; you can count on this to calm an agitated mind. Your emotions becoming tranquil, you can now see the beauty everywhere. Conversely an angry person cannot taste the food in his mouth. This is meditation on the breath, concentrate on the breath of life and you will appreciate what a wondrous world we live in. this is to love life and all creation.

Not wasting time on fighting over who has found the truth. The truth is elusive and is also subject to change. The irony is the only thing that does not alter is the fact that ‘everything is subject to change.’ I will be generous and say to the waiter accept the change.

Those Autumn leaves.

Those Autumn leaves.

Why would anyone leave their home in tropical Queensland, to go to Tasmania in autumn, the beginning of winter? Well it gets you out of your comfort zone, we need challengers and on the Gold Coast it is golden sand not golden autumn leaves. A change could be the reason although everything changes. So the reason is Pauline my <pommepal.wordpress,com> wanted to go and when she asked me I gave her my usual answer, “What ever.” I like to cooperate and go with the flow. I have found things run smoother when we are obliging. Thinking along these lines I wrote this.  Hit the above link for photos and more of our adventures.

Logging in on big things.

Logging in on big things.

Life’s  Highway.

Cruising in the afternoon sun, all our work has been done.

We have both paid our dues, we have nothing to lose.

Where ever we hang our hat is home, this wonderful world is ours to roam.

To drift along with the flow, we have found is the best way to go.

Just like the birds in the trees, we are floating along with the breeze.

Smiling at everyone on the way, we make new friends every day.

We were up with the dawning, watching the sun rise this morning.

The days seem to rush past, how long can the blue skies last?

Rain must come you know, to make the flowers grow.

Rain will come and rain will go just comply go with the flow.

Rain makes the rivers run then a boat would be fun.

If the weather decides to storm, we will find some where cozy and warm.

Today we are out in the sun, meeting and greeting everyone.

As the sun sinks over the hill, I am feeling I have had my fill.

As the day finishes in a blaze of glory, I will leave behind my story.

We all have only this one life to live; it is not what you take but what you give.

If you push and shove and hurry, you only invite trouble and worry.

A helpful, kind and sharing human race would make the world a better place.

Make this your main aspiration, to be a real inspiration.

 The art of enjoyment.

Rosny Cottage front view.

Rosny Cottage front view.

 

I avoid work yet I have got a lot done. I rarely ever toiled doing something I do not want to do. I have played all my life. As boy I enjoyed helping my mother on our poultry farm. It was a pleasure feeding the fouls. Chickens are a joy to look after. On cold nights our chickens were kept warmed by the heat of an oil lamp. It was nice and warm in the brooder shed and Mum let me sleep in there so I could stop those fluffy yellow chickens from huddling and crushing up too close to keep warm.

I was not all that happy about school education. I only did seven years interrupted by as many excuses as I could find. I liked the social side of school as I was the biggest boy in my class consequently I never experienced any bullying.

My first steady job was in a bakery that was a nice job the smell of bread baking is one of my favourite smells.  Up early you never miss a sun rise, and that is a good habit to get into, baking completed you have plenty of daylight left to play.

Then I found a livelihood I loved and Rigging became my game. Before the safety regulations, now carried to extremes, spoiling a challenging job. When a man could climb around on the steel without being unencumbered by a safety belt and ride the crane hook I enjoyed being a dare-devil now the young have to do things that endanger others to get their buzz.

What I am getting around to saying is, “Find something you like doing and you never have to work for a living.” Rigging was my game out in the fresh air getting good exercise and some excitement and being paid to do it. When I becoming an overseer I enjoyed passing on easy safe ways to get the job done. I held classes on wet down time days, making them into productive days.

Some P C help.

Art, if you can call what I do art, is just another game I playing with the things available at hand, in the now absorbed in art. Let me show you the fun I had with my drawing, for me it is all learning.

Sketched with 4B and 8B.

Sketched with 4B and 8B.

I learn to be more observant trying to record what is before me with a simple sketch pad and pencils. You can use all the range if you like. From H being hard to B black softer and darker to B 8 there is no end to how you can play and learn. I play with whatever is at hand.

Flowers inhabced.

Flowers enhanced.

Without a printer I used my camera to convert my sketch to the computer. Now the fun starts it needs a bit of contrast, Photoshop is used.

Then why not have a game with the other tools available, learn what these graphic designers use to make their advertising look irresistible.

Added enhancement, same drawing.

Explore more with the yellow and green highlighter pencils could give my flower a lift, may be?

Greeting another wonderful day.

Greeting another wonderful day.

Just Do It.

The heading for a previous post was, “Go before you go.” It is not a reminder to visit the toilet before you leave on a journey, although that is a good policy. I meant it as a reminder that life is like a candle in the wind. Any moment life’s journey could be cut short. So do not procrastinate, act now, go and carry out those ideas, dreams and plans without delay. Do not delay, this could be your only chance, strong and gusty winds are always a possibility.

On his way to greet the day.

On his way to greet the day.

To travel and experience is only one shallow aspect of this warning about inaction. There is a down to earth quote, buried in my jottings; I will dig up for you. “If I have anything coming to me, now is the time to slip it to me, because I cannot read my tombstone when I am dead.” Never miss an opportunity to show your appreciation. Spend precious time with the ones you love. The people around you need to be told of your love and admiration.

A good way to start the day.

A good way to start the day.

Displayed on a T-shirt were these words “Just do it.” A lot can be read into those words. We can intend to do all kinds of wonderful things and do nothing. It is wise to not say hurtful nasty things. But it is unwise not to pay complements when they are due and neglect to communicate kind thoughts. Better than kind words are kind actions, just doing that will make a difference in friendship and the world around us will improve. If enough people adopt this idea it is possible the world at large will become less turbulent and may become free of greed, hate and war.

Still doing it.

Still doing it.

I often write cryptic words, or words that are ambiguous. I wrote “Go before you go.” instead of “Go today don’t delay.” As a heading that would arouse curiosity I endeavor to attract many followers. Not to make money or to gain fame as an ego trip for me. I want to try and share some of the joy and contentment I have found. Things I have found that allow me to smile and appreciate the beauty of this fantastic, ever-changing world. Life is a magnificent ride if we know how to travel. I could find writing this blog hard work or as a challenging way to pass on some useful knowledge. I look on this blog as a pastime to convey some helpful tips to making life a joy.

They are just doing it too.

They are just doing it too.

The effect I make may be insignificant, but if everyone put a little more effort into being a better person the effect would be immense. The drip would soon fill the glass and our thrust for peace would be a reality. The irony of the effort I put into my writing is I am benefiting, growing and learning, keeping up, to some extent, with the fast changing technology of today. Good deeds have a boomerang effect, like karma both our good and bad actions come back. Try out my ideas, just do it, and see if it works. With practice I am sure it will be beneficial.

Life has its ups and downs.

Life has its ups and downs.

The most important person in your life is the person you are with right now. Pay them attention, show them you care. The most important thing you are doing is what you are doing this present moment. Do not ignore this opportunity give now the importance it deserves. It is these moments that make up your life. To hasten to a future occasion, often only to be disappointed, is to waste the experience of the activity you are engaged in. It is easy to get lost in the past or long for a coming event and not realize you are missing the importance of now. We rush through life wanting and longing for an unknown future experience. Stop and realize we are hastening to the same unavoidable unknown final outcome. Realize life is the appreciation of the opportunity you have to live to the best of your ability now.

A wave from Pauline.

A wave from Pauline.

I know nothing but what life’s knocks have taught me and what I have read and learnt from recognized authorities, following good roll-models, avoiding bad influences and choosing carefully what I read and watch on TV and the movies. That is how our character is built on the experiences we encounter. If you absorb negative rubbish you will suffer. If you make an effort to improve yourself in body and mind by following ethical, educated, wise and caring people you will learn and improve and find life a joy. Now you know how I do it, all you have to do is take my advice, just do it.

a refreshing way to start the day.

Good outlook, heigh position.

The big question.

Philosophers ask the big questions, here are some small questions and ironic answers.

Great job.

Why are we working long hours? The answer is to pay for time and labor saving devices. Why do I need a car to go to the gym? Because we get no exercise driving a car. Cycling or walking in the open air with the world unfolding at an enjoyable pace is worth considering.

Skys the limit.

Why do we need a car that travels faster than the legal speed limit? Same reason people smoke. We need to slow down and look at the flowers you do not see much at fifty km/hr through a smoke haze.

No gym fees low cost transport, no smoke.

Why do we buy expensive equipment and not read the manual on how to use all the available features? Because we do not need all the features we have paid for.

Why do we discard things that are still useful and serviceable? The reason often is because they are not the latest fashion.

We have it all.

Why do we waste our time on material things we do not need? Because we do not value our time that is an irreplaceable commodity.

We may think he has it all.

Why do we want everything? Because we are lacking something.

Why do people argue with us? It is because we are disagreeable. Why are we too short of time to relax? Because we are too busy making money.

On reflection this one has it all.

Why do we worry because most of the things we worry about never happen?

Why do we try to convert others to our beliefs? Because we will not consider changing our beliefs.

Why do some people want for nothing? It is because they are contented with having what they need and real needs are not extravagence.

Which one is the best?

It is a poor man that needs to greedily hoard material things in an effort to be happy. Modern technology can never surpass, in any field of mans costly endeavors, natures gifts. Nature’s wonderful gifts are free to those that respect and appreciate what she offers.

I think I’ll go by train.

This entire futile struggle needs to be questioned and a more leisurely approach, in balance with the flow of nature, is required. 

Bikes are best.

A tree with it’s hands full.

For what it is worth.

To a follower who is experiencing a time when the Dynamic Lifter has hit the air conditioning. Dynamic Lifter is the trade name for chicken manure, I am tempted to use a shorter word but four letter words have lost all their shock value they are too often used offhandedly and inappropriately, consequently they do not grab anyone’s attention anymore. We all experience these times in life when we feel totally over whelmed and cannot see how we are ever going to survive. We feel like breaking down and weeping, this may help but it is not a lasting fix.

Would flowers help.

Ask anyone who has lost a loved one, perhaps a child, a mother, a husband or wife. When someone dies that has seen them at their best and their worst and still supported and loved them. They can tell you what helped them survive their crisis but only time will heal.

A Galha cannot talk it only mimic our speach

Nothing any one can say will fix your situation; it is your problem, what saw them through may or may not work for you. Letting you know they care, their compassion and love is of real value. Their advice, though well meaning, may or may not work for you. Words are like water on a ducks back, it runs off with little effect. To realize these people do care is comforting.

Yes Banksia flowers are nice.

Time seems to pass slowly but time never stops and in time all things are subject to change, this is an undeniable fact. Only time will heal your wounds, the scars will remain, to remind us that we survived by our own strength. You are then aware of the strength within you that can then be drawn on in times of disaster.

These pots suvived heat of the kiln turned them into solid useful pottery.

When you have been dealt a bad hand can you bluff it out and win? A load of Dynamic Lifter has been dumped on your garden; can you do the work needed to use it to make your garden grow again? The excreta has hit the fan you cannot run for cover, are you going to be a survivor or are you going to drowned in your own tears?

Banksias survive without fertiliser.

I believe you are strong you have a worthwhile goal in life. You may feel the pressure and shed a tear drop and ask for help but you know it is up to you and you will not give in, you have too much to offer, to give in is absurd. You just have not realized how strong you are; when this has passed you will know the truth of the strength within you.

From the mud the Water Lily opens to the light.

Give it your best shot and do not worry about tomorrow but concentrate on the best action right now to achieve your goal. The future is beyond our control so the outcome is governed by the now. Concentrate on now it is your best option to achieve your PhD.

In Buddhism the Water Lily is highly regarded.
