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

What are a few days between seasons? As if a shadow could tell of the time and temperature range from hour to day, today or tomorrow, or last season.
   Summer to fall. Now is not a fixed period, as was yesterday or last week. Those periods of time are fluid, ever changing, but still somewhat definite in our minds for the time being representing the periods or eras of our presence here on earth.
   How we measure our time, any time, always includes a proviso. The conditions we set will influence what is to come, as much as what has happened.
   How can you explain yourself when a short-term view overrides the obvious long-term accumulation of thought and experience.
   This time is yours; how you chose to share it will differ from day to day.

You wander.
We all do.

Uncertainty can often
blur your surroundings.


The map is always there,
the lines signify the path
you need to follow.

You simply have to find
the direction.

It is all in your hands.

               Anguish or confusion, 
        sometimes it is the way. 
      Anxiety takes over. 
        What else can you say  
     as you try to put aside all 
     the feelings that dog you 
   anyway.    No pain today.  
           Try as you might to
    see your way through. 
       No pain.    Not today.

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

Beyond all else,
it is the people in our lives
that give this life
the sparkle and substance
we all deserve.

I am a father, only once,
but that is all it has taken
to provide me with
a reason to rise
each day.

Every day provides a
further reason for joy.
Today I celebrate
more, because today
it all began.

My daughter’s birthday; every year
it is a reminder that I have done
something right in this life.
As the decades pass, we both grow
older, each year becoming more
significant in one way or another.
Our relationship changes, our roles
are altered over time, the love grows
stronger, and I continue to become
fortified by the spirit that has allowed
me to see what I have become, and
who I truly am. I am a father. I am
both proud and humbled. I’ve only
done this once, and I had no idea
what to expect when it all began. I
never knew how rewarding it would
be and every day I am reminded
of this blessing.

      A season of heightened
  emotions, and reminders of such,
look past inconvenience
       and disputes
with family or friends.    It is
  a time to swallow truths and make
amends with those who cared, or
      those who dare to look back
            on what mattered.
              is always easier
