Look past the faults.
Keep moving forward.

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 . . .
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.
Experience comes from noticing what you are paying attention to.
Maybe this Moon
with the power it bleeds
will illuminate more
Maybe this Moon
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.

On each of my morning walks, during the past week or so, over the sidewalks and pick-marked pavement of downtown Toronto, I could not help but notice the sounds and sights of autumn.
Last Wednesday (or was it Tuesday?) a chorus of Canada Geese rang out above me as the sun was just rising. I looked up, of course, but could not see the birds above the canopy of trees in the park.
But, I did notice.
I also noticed the leaves, some of them, slowly shifting to the familiar autumn colours. Each day I noticed a few more, but I have not, not yet, been overwhelmed by a shock of orange and yellow leaves.
The temperatures in Toronto remain above average for this time of year, and we have not experienced an overnight frost, so the leaves will continue changing slowly.
They are not in a rush.
Neither am I.
Autumn, often, moves too quickly.
I prefer taking the time.
