Look past the faults.
Keep moving forward.

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 . . .
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.
Experience comes from noticing what you are paying attention to.
Maybe this Moon
with the power it bleeds
will illuminate more
Maybe this Moon
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;
Still I write.

There is the black, the white, and the combined grey of the everyday obligations, rituals and responsibilities that (somehow or another) rob us of hints of colour outside of the periphery.
We all do all that we need to do, yes, but we can interrupt the momentous shades with bursts of colour here and there.
Do something each hour, or day, to open your eyes. Read foreign poetry, pick up a new hobby, call up an old friend, walk an unfamiliar path and look at the magnificent flowers or street murals. Life is all around us, but we fail to take the time to dip our brush into the well.
See all that can be when you step off the grey scale, even temporarily.
Life is not all black and white.
Add colour when you can.
