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
well-rounded,
other times
dull or
occasionally
broken.
Still I write.

The True Undertaking

Posted on October 22, 2017 by j.g.lewis Leave a comment

Aren’t we always negotiating over something?
  Daily, with others, with the universe, with our Gods or ourselves, we are always trying to get the best deal, improved situations or circumstance, something better than what we have now.
We deal in privacy, and trust, negotiations over time, space, or price; our morals and beliefs are often tested or exploited. Giving an inch, taking our time, we continue trying to get past, or through, conditions or clauses, spelled out or implied.
  We try to keep our feelings out of the art of the deal, but many times it is all about emotional consideration. Consolidation is a goal.
  We give. We take. The results do not always show the true undertaking.
  Is it a commitment, or a contract?
