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

Each morning, every morning, there is time to consider plans for the day, for the weeks, months, perhaps years ahead.
   Formulated in quiet thought, these goals might not be concrete, or complete, but they are personal reminders of what can be achieved over time.
   If I write them down they seem real; more than dreams and wishes. Maybe even more than I should ask for, or more than I am allowed?
   Only time will tell.

Comfort food,
as the temperature dips.


Restaurant special,
mom’s recipe or
make it up as you go.

Is there a better day
than today?

Be nourished.

Take the time
to enjoy.

Remember the leftovers.

Art is subjective,

graffiti destructive,

or is it

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.
