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 . . .

Mondays are just young Fridays

The clock and the calendar move
forward incrementally, naturally
(as it should be) from a darker
winter we can’t leave behind to
something resembling spring.
In-between our seasons we take
whatever we can, where we are.
We have little choice.
A less-than-enthusiastic forecast
glares at me from a mobile device,
with greater chance of soakers
more than once or twice in the
week ahead as atmospheric rivers
come down to earth (a convenient
excuse for all it’s worth).
April showers still to come, as it
happens, as it is always done, we
keep moving forward step-by-step
mainly in spite of the weather.

of interest

your knowledge is
your currency

save up for what
you need or desire

there is interest
in your wisdom

all my flaws

Who can you blame?
Are the feelings unjust when a decision is a matter of knowing you must find fault or favour with the ill winds of change?
It is never enough to simply rearrange plans or predicaments. It is like making a prediction of all my flaws with my faith as fractured or fragile as it is, or has been.
Far easier to see what I haven’t been doing.

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

Multi-tasking has not only become the bane of our existence, but the way we exist. Each week, the ever-increasing demands, distractions, and obligations can totally deplete our energy or essence.

By breaking it down, day by day, you make the week more manageable.

Acknowledge one situation in your life that’s taking away your power and make this a priority for the day. Give yourself time to think deeper on the task or circumstance. Find greater understanding of its importance.

You may not be able to devote all of your time to this one single activity — and you might not conquer or complete the task — yet by making it a priority, you’ll more mindfully be able to go about the day. You will gain greater perspective of the situation and, in doing so, more effectively handle whatever else comes your way.

By concentrating your energy directly on one situation, you are better able to deal with the other issues, as they become a priority every other day of the week. Finding more time for one specific task may also mean finding more time for you.

Make your self the true priority.
