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.

Mondays are just young Fridays

It’s worth taking time to enjoy
a home-brewed cup of coffee
from a special mug, a leisurely
game of Scrabble, dashing off
a few Christmas cards to
faraway friends, or reading a
couple of favourite poems while
listening to a symphony you
haven’t heard in a while.
In these days where ‘busy’ seems
to take up all your time,
you need to step away from the
everyday stuff and do the
things you want to do.
Give yourself a time away
from all the big responsibilities
that occupy your life, and
enjoy the little things,
even just for a moment or two.
It is the little things, especially
this time of year, that will
surely make a big difference
in how you feel.
