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 not young Fridays

Where you are is not where you will always be, physically, spiritually, emotionally and fundamentally.
Even your location will change, even if you stay in the same place (few of us do). Forward is not always a destination or direction, but rather a state of being.
Where will you go today?

future progress

It is often history that clouds our judgment, and even prevents us from seeing the true and right path we must take going forward.

   The steps we have already made, even those unplanned, play a meaningful role in the direction we have chosen. But, they do not always have to chart the course of future progress.

   Progress, yes, it is what we must do, even unknowingly.

The coldest morning of the winter
reminds you what is truly important:
– a warm parka
– garbage mitts
– a positive attitude
– good coffee

Spring is coming.
So is the weekend.

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

Bedtime Stories

Posted on March 2, 2017 by j.g.lewis Leave a comment

One of my greatest memories, both as a child and a parent, is story time.
  Right before bed, freshly bathed and all snuggled in, the time spent sharing a story is a ritual that began with my mother, and then continued with my daughter when I became a parent.
  A bedtime story is one of those traditions that grows with you from childhood on up. For many of us, time spent reading a book before bed is the relaxing way to traverse from day into night. A good book can fire up the imagination and fuel dreams, while others can put you to sleep (and I mean that in a good way).
  Another tradition is sharing the same childhood favorites from generation to generation. Today, March 2, we celebrate the memory of the most fabulous authors, Theodore Seuss Geisel.
  The man brought smiles and laughter to homes across the planet with classics like Cat In The Hat, Fox In Socks and How The Grinch Stole Christmas.
  Outside of nursery rhymes, Dr. Seuss was probably the introduction to poetry for many, many people. His books and tales shared between parents and children helped launch a lifetime love of literature over and over again.
  A great way to say Good Night.
