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 not young Fridays

Where you are is not where you will always be, physically, spiritually, emotionally and fundamentally.
Even your location will change, even if you stay in the same place (few of us do). Forward is not always a destination or direction, but rather a state of being.
Where will you go today?

future progress

It is often history that clouds our judgment, and even prevents us from seeing the true and right path we must take going forward.

   The steps we have already made, even those unplanned, play a meaningful role in the direction we have chosen. But, they do not always have to chart the course of future progress.

   Progress, yes, it is what we must do, even unknowingly.

The coldest morning of the winter
reminds you what is truly important:
– a warm parka
– garbage mitts
– a positive attitude
– good coffee

Spring is coming.
So is the weekend.

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

Poetry: the language of life.
  A rhyme or rhythm like the days themselves, any time of the week or year, poetry is honesty.
  April is Poetry Month. That the month begins under a full moon is as exciting as it is inspiring.
  This is a time for open thoughts, reflection, and communication with those you love, those you don’t, and with your own self.
  It’s wonderful that Poem Kubili, which has been silent for too long, is coming back; a reawakening of sorts. I look forward to writing again with my international friends. Poetry matters. You matter.
  Poetry Month is always exciting for me. Yes, I often write poetry and prose (some may call it an obsession, but for the entire month of April, I write nothing else.
  Each day, every day, you will find my poetic thoughts here on
  Please drop by when you can as I share my life, my love, and my honesty.
