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 . . .

it was so

     scarcely we remember
       humble beginnings

   the when
                the where

     not consequential

   the why
        a true miracle

     for a time
     it was so

                 until it wasn’t

there are no humble endings

     but we are humbled
     by even its existence

Sadly, our voice
is not always
strong, or not always
there ,when it
is needed.

It is hard to know
what to say, or
how to say it,
so often we
remain silent.

Silence stops the
process of
but it does not
stop the thoughts.

Mondays are just young Fridays

A sign I’ve been glancing at, daily, since I noticed it a week back at a regular coffee stop where I try to begin my day with a dark roast cup of bravery.
   I try to take the time, every morning, to scribble out my current considerations, deliberations, and contemplations on images and memories that have come to me in my dreams and in reality.
   If your first meal of the day is the most important, shouldn’t your first thoughts be as well?
   Take time to write them down. It’s important. What you are thinking affects how you continue to navigate your self through the coming hours or weeks.
   “The bravest thing you can be is yourself.”
   How much courage is required to make it through the remainder of the day? Is a single cup of coffee enough to provide the fortitude required to step further into the day?
   It’s a good start.

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

What Catches Your Attention?

Posted on January 2, 2021 by j.g.lewis // 2 Comments

I’m on Pinterest.
Actually, I’ve been on Pinterest for quite some time, I’ve just never been as consistent, or organized, or as committed as I intended when I signed up a few years ago.
I’d add photos and content, in fits and starts, in random periods. I even forgot about it for a while, but realized yesterday that I had added more than I thought, over time.
There’s a lot to see.
Pinterest is inspiring.
What catches your interest?
I post photos, quotes, poetry, journaling info, stuff from my website, or things that catch my attention.
My user name is jg_lewis
Come and have a look.
What do you post?
I’d love to see your pins and boards. Send me your user name. Let me know what captures your imagination.

Pinterest fulfills my window-shopping cravings. I’m a serial browser from way back, because I don’t actually like owning a bunch of stuff, or the act of shopping all that much, but I LOVE looking at beautiful things, and I dig the convenience of having millions of beautiful things in my pocket. Mostly I pin clothes I’m never going to buy, projects I’m never going to do, food I doubt I’ll ever make, and quotes about procrastination…

I love to look, and read, as see the art (and fascinations) of other people. I just found you, followed you, and will look for ,ore inspiration. Happy New Year my friend. peace.
