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
well-rounded,
other times
dull or
occasionally
broken.
Still I write.

        What have you forgotten?
  What keeps you awake? What
could solve those few problems?
   What will it take?   What are
                              you missing?
What makes it real? What are you
thinking? What do you feel? What
   would be different if
          it actually could?   What is
holding you back from doing
   all that
you should? What could go wrong?
What makes you so sure?    What,
   for heavens sake,
     is the answer
                           or cure? What will
it cost you to change up the pace?
     What goes on behind the
smirk on your face?   What do you
remember?    What do you know?
    What will it take to let it all go?
                                                       j.g.l.
