a daily breath...

A thought du jour, my daily breath includes collected and conceived observations, questions of life, fortune cookie philosophies, reminders, messages of peace and simplicity, unsolicited advice, inspirations, quotes and words that got me thinking. They may get you thinking too . . .


When it’s not right, we see
only what is wrong instead
of trying to make it better.

Look past the faults.
See possibilities.

Keep moving forward.

So, I make mistakes.
   An oversight or three, here and there, or an error or lack of judgment can (and will) happen. My lack of foresight simply happens.
   We do not learn from our mistakes, but rather we learn from the experience.
   You cannot prepare yourself for all probabilities knowing a mistake is a likely possibility.
   Pay attention.
   Experience comes from noticing what you are paying attention to.

That Moon


Maybe this Moon

with the power it bleeds

      will illuminate more

      unnecessary violence

     and greed.

       Maybe this Moon

         has memories

    it simply cannot forget.

       Some of us will relate

    while others regret.

  Maybe that Moon knows

        what it is all worth

   and sets an example

       for those looking up

         from this earth.

I'm like a pencil;
sometimes sharp,
most days
other times
dull or
Still I write.

What do you promise yourself, or deny, day after day?
  What do you put off doing, even when you know you should, but don’t?
  Each of us has something more we could do for our spirit, mind or body, yet we don’t follow the call, for whatever reason.
  We may feel tired, physically or emotionally. We may have thought about it long enough and convinced ourselves we don’t need it now, or that now should be later.
  We may have become so settled in our ways that we can only put it off for another day (or the one after that). The pages on the calendar turn, and turn again and we no longer think of the why, but the when.
  Physically we need to breathe, mentally we need to see, and emotionally we need to be. All parts of the whole you need stimulation, not hibernation. Trying something new, or picking up where we once were (when it comes to just about anything), can put it all in perspective.
  It’s a new day, of a new week.
  Begin now.
