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.

What Do You Believe?

We are, or should be, driven by curiosity.
  Our innate inquisitiveness should be the force behind all our learning as we seek to understand the people, policies, or parables we deal with each day.
  How often do you ask yourself why, or how?
  Do you accept the explanations, excuses, or rationalizations provided? What about those you tell yourself?
  Sometimes we don’t ask the right questions, or any at all. Often the reasons seem logical enough, adequate, or simply palatable at the time or in the moment.
  Maybe it’s just the answer we want to hear.
  We should know the difference, or try to learn. It’s not always what you believe, but whom you believe.
