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 . . .
Gentle thoughts, harshly
written on whatever
scrap of paper available.
This is your life.
This is an attempt to
make sense or make do

What is of one’s concern
need not translate into a
narrative easily understood
by others. You may not
fully comprehend its true
meaning yourself, at least
not in one sitting.
Give yourself the time.
You need to find the clarity
you need. A daunting task…
you need not ask for any
opinions from others, Each
of us sees things differently.
Today I sit with a stack of blank holiday cards in front of me, and a dog-eared address book full of names, phone numbers and/or addresses from across the globe.
The names are familiar, and the extent to which I know each person varies in time and in depth. Yet, with each name, there is a friendship shared but not acknowledged as often as it should be.
A Christmas card allows me an opportunity. I will write messages of varying length to the people on my list to acknowledge the season as well as the person.
The true meaning of friendship goes beyond words.

Still I write.

A little rain, here and there, will not discourage me, or hold me back. My vision may be blurred today, but I proceed anyway.
Each one of us deals with impairments and obstacles — physically, emotionally, or temporarily — but we have to keep moving forward.
To give up, or to step away from a vision, will forever alter your path.
Acknowledge your troubles, and seek the answers that are not provided.
Keep asking the questions that matter, and keep asking yourself why.
The solutions to your problems are not always apparent, and it make time and research to further determine if the answers are acceptable, but don’t stop.
Don’t let a bad day ruin the weeks ahead.
The rain will stop, the sun will shine, and you will dry off.
The cycle of experience will better prepare you for all that is ahead.
