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.

If I had all the answers,
I would have to know
every question.
If you know
each question,
it leaves little room
for curiosity.
Without curiosity,
there is nothing left
to ask?
We learn by asking,
we live by learning.
We question,
and then question
each answer. Every
Time itself provides
questions, and the
answers are not
always there. So we
keep asking, or waiting
for the answers.
Keep questioning
the how and why, and
the when, and who;
always mindful that
some questions are
not worth asking.
If you ask the question
you must be prepared
for the answer.
I do not have all
the answers, and still
have so many
questions. There is
so much to learn, and
so much to live.
The more you know,
the more you grow.
