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 . . .

Mondays are just young Fridays

Each morning, every morning, there is time to consider plans for the day, for the weeks, months, perhaps years ahead.
   Formulated in quiet thought, these goals might not be concrete, or complete, but they are personal reminders of what can be achieved over time.
   If I write them down they seem real; more than dreams and wishes. Maybe even more than I should ask for, or more than I am allowed?
   Only time will tell.

Comfort food,
as the temperature dips.


Restaurant special,
mom’s recipe or
make it up as you go.

Is there a better day
than today?

Be nourished.

Take the time
to enjoy.

Remember the leftovers.

Art is subjective,

graffiti destructive,

or is it

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

Daily Essentials

Posted on January 25, 2018 by j.g.lewis Leave a comment

I wake each day, full of ache or full of wonder. Sometimes it is the same.
  Some days feel like others, but really they are not.
  Each day contains approximately the same number of hours, yet it’s the science of the light, or the politics of the pavement, that will deceive even the most earnest disciple.
  Daily essentials; truth or trust, and the occasional coffee, are the only elements that will truly advance humanity.
  Don’t leave your dreams on the pillow, don’t let your faith flounder, and don’t bother repeating the basic mistakes you did Tuesday (or that night in December). If you do it again it will still be the same.
  It’s a new day, another way to discover physics, poetry, or the anatomy of circumstance.
  Own your resilience, honour your silence, and admit your deficiencies.
  Refill your coffee when you run out of reason.
