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 . . .

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

I will, as the day progresses,
encounter negative attitudes, become
distracted by unfulfilled dreams, and
make numerous attempts
to silence the imagination. All is
to be expected and none can be
explained, thus I will continue to
make my way.
  It is not without want or intention,
and at certain points over the next
24 hours, I will find some clarity
and acceptance; often reminding
myself to be grateful for what
I have or where I have been.
  Sure, certain things need to be
improved, or forgotten, but these
are only parts of what I am and not
the total me.
  I am the sum of all my parts. I am
what I am and keep trying to be
all I can be.
  I will continue to find
a future for the unexplained.
So goes my life, so goes my day.
