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.

Be Thankful For The Time

There are thousands of languages, and millions upon millions of words, all formed by only 26 letters.
At times it is difficult to find the correct word to express what we wish to say.
We ponder all the options, we can struggle and edit, or write and rewrite, and still not be entirely satisfied with what ends up on the page because we place so much importance on the message we are trying to convey.
Sometimes what we over think what we choose to say, or how we choose to say it.
Other times the words and thoughts flow easily.
Most times, what we want to say can be expressed simply.
Thank you is what I wish to say today.
Eight letters.
Two words.
Two words that can sound different in each of the languages, but the sentiment is always the same.
Sometimes is does not say enough, but every time you say those two words you express gratitude, respect, and kindness.
Thank you: these are words we don’t say enough, or hear enough.
Today, and every day, we need to take time to say thank you to someone else.
We need to take time to say thank you to our self.
There are 60 seconds to each minute, 60 minutes to an hour, and 24 hours a day.
A thank you takes only a few seconds, but those two words can brighten the remainder of the day.
Find the time.
Make the time.
Be thankful for the time.
