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 . . .

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

The inner voice,
an inner choice
to hear what matters
amid the distractions and
less-than-intimate interactions
life lays out
before you.
Suffering the indignity of
less space to feel or see,
you know you must
keep moving forward.
Surrounded by noise, day
after day, you continue
trying to listen
wanting to say
all of those thoughts, and
words stuck in your soul.
Own your emotions.
In a world full of shouting
a whisper will find its way.

The Space You Occupy

Pay attention to your self.
Care for your body and soul,
mindful of the place and
the space you occupy on
the crazy mixed-up planet.
