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 . . .

Look

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
well-rounded,
other times
dull or
occasionally
broken.
Still I write.

What Now Mr. Trudeau?

So what will you do now, Mr. Trudeau?
   Monday’s results show that very little has changed since you called the election a little over a month ago; but reality is deceiving.
   Canada is hurting.
   My country is hurting more than it was when you called this election in August.
   So what will you and your minority government do now, Mr. Trudeau?
   Certainly you thought you could do more when you called this election in the middle of a pandemic. Somehow you thought that you could gain more power by calling an election when you did.
   But you didn’t.
   You now, as you did before, require the backing of another party to do anything you want to do.
   Just like before.
   But it is not like before.
   You have weakened your position by weakening this country.
You, Mr. Trudeau, have weakened this country spiritually, morally and financially.
   My country is more fractured, more polarized, more confused, and a lot less healthy than it was a little over a month ago.
   It is more about what you have done than what you will do.
   This election did not help.
   So, what now Mr. Trudeau?
