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.

be content

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.

Frustrations often come and go,
some all-too-familiar, others more
on a need-to-know basis, a function
of life’s ebb and flow.
It is so.
A challenge to the here and now,
and who will care anyhow?
In its time you concentrate, or
meditate, even appreciate
what led you to this tiring state.
will not get the best of me.
Overwhelmed, I will struggle to
step over all I cannot change and
embrace the changes I have made.
Be calm,
always a mindful goal as you
question your being, and
search your soul. Answers apparent,
but not always there, take your time
with this truth or dare.
It’s not
out of sight, or out of mind, but
solutions arrive when it is time.
You know more than you admit,
or should, and always for the
greater good.
