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.

be content

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.

We seek comfort in all that is familiar.
We, for lack of words or without a sense of place, will step back into the habits which built our reality.
A room full of books will quiet my mind.
I have flown from Toronto. A Sunday afternoon and I am at the Winnipeg Millennium Library.
This is a familiar place. So often, in the past, I have come here with my laptop or notebook and have been consumed by the empowering library silence.
I used to spend vacant afternoons writing in this space.
A room full of books will quiet the time.
The library has inspired me in the past, and it is again.
Today is a day to be grateful for places and people who inspire. We can’t always get to them, but we know they are there.
Happy Thanksgiving.
