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 . . .

Mondays are just young Fridays

What are a few days between seasons? As if a shadow could tell of the time and temperature range from hour to day, today or tomorrow, or last season.
   Summer to fall. Now is not a fixed period, as was yesterday or last week. Those periods of time are fluid, ever changing, but still somewhat definite in our minds for the time being representing the periods or eras of our presence here on earth.
   How we measure our time, any time, always includes a proviso. The conditions we set will influence what is to come, as much as what has happened.
   How can you explain yourself when a short-term view overrides the obvious long-term accumulation of thought and experience.
   This time is yours; how you chose to share it will differ from day to day.

You wander.
We all do.

Uncertainty can often
blur your surroundings.


The map is always there,
the lines signify the path
you need to follow.

You simply have to find
the direction.

It is all in your hands.

               Anguish or confusion, 
        sometimes it is the way. 
      Anxiety takes over. 
        What else can you say  
     as you try to put aside all 
     the feelings that dog you 
   anyway.    No pain today.  
           Try as you might to
    see your way through. 
       No pain.    Not today.

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

It is not always clear; the details,
the deeds, the thoughts that intercede
are all-too-often too murky to believe.
  The why and the when, and what will
happen then, can be confusing.
  It’s not always black and white.
  The rules, the results, and life itself,
are full of areas that are not always
grey. We have to look for meaning in
the madness, and take a closer look
each aspect of what happens to us.
  There are grey areas, yes, but many,
many other colours will appear on
the scene, like a television test screen.
The green of envy, the red of anger
or rage and jealousy will mix with
the hues of blue associated with
depression, anxiety or disappointment.
  It can all blur the tone of what we
would like to believe is happiness
and well-being, all a part of the
emotional scale we wrestle with in an
attempt to find balance and clarity.
  We simply can’t be limited by black
and white, or the grey of everyday.
  Allow all of your emotions to heal
and to feel. By knowing, by accepting,
all of the shades in this technicolor
world, you are better able to deal with
the self, and the emotions of others.
  It’s all part of the big colourful picture.
