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.

Get Your Shot

Posted on June 10, 2021 by j.g.lewis Leave a comment

More than 60 percent of Canadians have received a first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, while eight percent of the country is considered “fully vaccinated”.
I know the number went it up slightly yesterday as I took my second shot.
Variants aside, and with a couple of weeks to allow this juice to circulate and be absorbed through my body, I will be considered fully vaccinated.
I’m relieved.
It’s a pretty big step.
I got a little emotional.
I realized that soon, while still taking precautions, we will all be able to gather closer with friends and family.
This shot allows me to dream a little more of soon seeing my daughter.
I’m now more confident than optimistic of months and weeks until travel, rather than the unpredictable inevitable.
We will be able to hug soon (soon being a relative term).
Remember, this vaccine is not just for you; it is for everyone.
Get your shot when you can, as soon as you can.
