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.

Letters from friends: news not only
from another part of the planet, but
stories of what’s going on in another
person’s world.
  We receive fewer letters in this age
of instant, so when one arrives in the
mailbox you appreciate what is in
the envelope.
  You realize someone has taken a little
extra time to sit down, actually slow
down, and record the moments with
paper and pen. There is a certain
intimacy to the sharing of thoughts,
or stories; a more organic connection.
  It is uncommon communication, now,
and you read the sentiment differently
than you would off a screen.
  You know a reply will be received in
the same manner when you write back.
Do write back. Send a message.
