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 . . .

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

night thoughts 12:43

A shifting shadow, the curious
moon, drop of rain resting on a
gentle leaf, a song or sound
from a passing car, laughter
caught in the night’s slight
breeze. Exacting opportunities
like these just happen. Naturally.
Sometimes it’s the
simple things that inspire.
Be moved. All day you’ve been
waiting for this moment. Now.
Create when you can.


Your Choice

When will you speak out,
or speak up?
What are your choices?
What will you abide?
What will you decide?

The Heart Speaks
Posted on June 23, 2018 by j.g.lewisLeave a comment

don’t think about it

act on it

precious time is wasted
overthinking emotions
and ensuring
conditions are right

and that is all wrong

the heart knows
the heart feels
the heart speaks



through the heart
