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 . . .

future progress

It is often history that clouds our judgment, and even prevents us from seeing the true and right path we must take going forward.

   The steps we have already made, even those unplanned, play a meaningful role in the direction we have chosen. But, they do not always have to chart the course of future progress.

   Progress, yes, it is what we must do, even unknowingly.

The coldest morning of the winter
reminds you what is truly important:
– a warm parka
– garbage mitts
– a positive attitude
– good coffee

Spring is coming.
So is the weekend.

cloud songs

        Our dreams, scattered
     amidst our memory, last night
            or the one before.
     The dream, the day
     inconsequential as
          the music that plays
            in the coffee shop.
            It is all noise
       cluttering the silence
       we think we want to hear.

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

We’re going to take flashlights, illuminate the darkness, shine light into the corners of our mind, check for monsters under the bed, and then find time to cast shadow puppets on the wall.

We will write with yesterday’s crayons, tomorrow’s pencil, and the blood of our ancestors as we tear open the memory banks, clean off a few dirty secrets, and polish up the windshield for the meaningful journey ahead.

Pack a big lunch, bring along all your baggage, and prepare to make friends with a few strangers as you re-familiarize yourself with your self.

Is a 24-day guided journaling program that will work wherever you find yourself in this life.
Explore the W5 of the self, healing and feeling, breathing and believing while you discover more reasons to continue the process of journaling.

Beginning June 30
VOICE/CHOICE is a great way to kick off the second-half of the year.
The days are longer, and brighter, and there is a little more time for your self.

Visit Soultalk: The Essence of Self on Facebook for more details, or to sign up for this soul-nourishing exercise.
