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 . . .

these days

tomorrow is another chance

but what about today?

Mondays are just young Fridays

Morning fog limits perspective.
As much surprise as wonder,
as isolating as illuminating,
we naturally want to see further.
Your vantage point stays the same.
Captivated throughout the day,
you may well stand where you are,
only the focal point broadens.Daylight eventually finds its way,
you can easily see the difference.
Darkness will come, it always does,
the view will be different tomorrow.

hold the image
speak the silence
feel the clarity

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

In my pack I carry a notebook,
day planner, a paperback, often
my camera, occasionally a
sweater, usually a sandwich,
and always a piece of fruit.
These are the things required
to get me through the day.

In my mind I carry thoughts,
a never-ending to-do list,
residual dreams, a purpose,
memories, and lessons
I have learned thus far.
Hopefully it’s enough
to get me through life.

Travel light, or as light as
possible. It’s pointless
carrying around too much
baggage, or too many things
that hold you back. You
should know what you need
to keep moving forward.

At the same time, always leave
a little room for the unexpected.
Whether it’s time, space, or
mindset, you have to allow for
new thoughts, adventures,
people, and the treasures you
may find along the way.
