life notes; flaws and all

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.

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.

I am not now where I thought
I would be. Directions and
distractions have taken me
far afield, away from a path
I thought I would follow.
   I was certain, at one point,
that I would arrive in a new
place with new people and
fresh opportunities.
   I suppose it is a matter of
perspective.
   It now feels familiar.
   I feel, right now, that this is
the place I was meant to be.
   More importantly, I am
now where I want to be.
   Home was thousands of
miles away. Now it is here.
   I am happy with that.
   I am happy where I am.

Where is your home?
Send me a photo and tell
me something about the
place you call home.
