tomorrow is another chance
but what about today?

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 . . .
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.11/28/2022 j.g.l.

Make a sound; make a statement,

make up your mind,
make it matter, make up for
lost time. Make it clear, but don’t
make it tough. Make a little extra,

make it home, but you will
make more of your life, by

April 27th is Poem in Your Pocket Day
a day to celebrate poetry by selecting
a poem, carrying it with you, and
sharing it with friends and strangers
wherever the day takes you. In the
workplace, coffee shop, shopping mall,
or out on the street, poetry can brighten
up the world around you. You may have
a favorite poem you wish to share, but I
offer you this one, in case it’s not handy.
