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.

Mondays are just young Fridays

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.

Canadians Expect Action

Posted on October 22, 2019 by j.g.lewis Leave a comment

The Liberals were handed a minority government last night, a weak mandate from a divided country.
  Justin Trudeau’s government will need the support of other parties to pass any sort of meaningful bill in the immediate future. This will require compromise and cooperation. It may require a coalition.
  Thing is, the leaders of all political parties didn’t seem to accept the results, or the message, that followed a long and often ugly campaign. In fact, most of the politicians sounded like they were still campaigning in their end-of-night speeches. Nobody likes loosing — and even the victor lost a lot in the 40-day race to the polls — but the results are in; now it’s time for our elected officials to get down to the business of building this country up. Again.
  Canadians expect action.
  We cannot afford to waste time, but more importantly, we cannot afford to go back to the polls anytime soon.
  So politicians, it is time to make it work. Show the citizens of this country what you are truly made of.
  Let’s make Canada great; not again, but always.
