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 . . .


As it is, not
as we wish it to be.

You have days
to think back on,

and you do…

always with the questions

Is what you do enough?
For who?
For you?
Is it selfish to think mainly
of what I need to do for me,
myself, and I?
When will I find resolve to
my never-ending queries?
Will it be enough?
Do you still doubt?
Do you struggle with answers,
as much as the questions?
Can you decide?
Are you trying?
Is that enough?

                          Library of memories;
      pages and paragraphs full of history
          and biography, essay or adventure.
                            Which story should I tell?
               Is it one you would well know or
                   a tale I still have no ending for?

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

Three Years In

Posted on December 29, 2017 by j.g.lewis Leave a comment

Three years ago I opened up this website, and each day, every day since, I have been writing and posting something right here.
  In many ways it still surprises me. Three months before I began this project, I really had no idea I would be doing this. In fact, I questioned the need or the purpose.
  This has been a total learning process. I knew, coming into this, about graphics and design, photography, formatting and coding, but only from a newspaper perspective. I was very familiar with layout pages, and pica sticks and marking up pages by pencil. I soon learned, first hand, there were few similarities.
  Three years in, I continue learning, and relearning, about this vast digital world and the growth and evolution of social media. I’m always learning, and I’m still trying to keep up.
  The learning keeps me interested, but is still secondary to the purpose.
It is all about communication.
  We, as humans, now have more ways to communicate than we ever have had before. It is fast, it is furious, and it is right there.
  It is instant, and I like to think it is important.
  Thank you for reading, thank you for liking, and following, and commenting.
  Thank you for being here.
