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.

be content

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 question of faith,
matter of time, physical being,
thoughts denied.
Whole-hearted wonder,
a worthwhile purpose not
always apparent. Moral or myth.
Humanity’s survival
a gift in kind. We are all seeking
answers, comfort, and
kinship within the spiritual realm.
Even those of us who deny
the existence of a higher power
find a source of contentment.
Eventually. Faith
remains a question, it must,
for daily we count on too much,
and have little else
to rely on. Our beliefs may falter,
or we within them. Examination
comes when you least expect,
care for the soul is
repeatedly neglected. Interpretation
of the self rarely leads to resolution.
We continue asking, seeking,
wanting and being. Listen.
Live your question.
