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.

A pencil and paper, cup of coffee
or tea, a moment to yourself for
inexpensive therapy.
  Take a sip, then pick up the pencil
and begin writing everything that
comes to mind.
  Don’t think so much as write,
don’t think of the reason why or
think about time, just write.
  Stream-of-consciousness, let it
flow, you might be surprised at
what you know or what spills onto
the page. Write on. Let it bleed.
  Random thoughts or something
less specific, problems you have
faced or promises that once were
made, each thought or word carries
some sort of meaning. You might
even question the reason for being,
but some sort of narrative will slowly
come to be.
  Important, however, to let out the
thoughts, and to read and see what’s
been taking up space. Once it has
been written out you are better able
to comprehend, or just acknowledge
a lot of stuff you’ve been ignoring.
  Give it some time, perhaps every
Monday, or try for a week. Just write,
just see. Just be.
