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.

How You Play

It is hard to say it’s not a game, when
so many rules are sort of the same. Life
is much like Scrabble, you must play
what you are dealt. Always searching
for the right word, using what you have,
trying your best, hoping you don’t get
stuck in the end.

It’s not only how you play but what
you choose, which often determines if
you win or how you lose. Taking turns,
it is strategy that pulls you through,
other times sacrifice; not doing exactly
as you want because you don’t have
what you need.

You wait for opportunity when you have
something to say, then another player
gets in your way, or takes what is yours.
Unprepared you can’t find the words.
Sometimes there are not enough Ys
or a lot of whys, and then there are
too many I.O.U.s
