tomorrow is another chance
but what about today?

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 . . .
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.11/28/2022 j.g.l.

Art is everywhere:
structured or unstructured,
amateur or accidental,
professional and circumspect,
confrontational or mundane,
curated and manipulated,
it is right there.
take the time, each day, to
take it in, wherever you are.
appreciate it, consider all
the implications of
the expression of life.
Today I am off to see
THE ART OF BANKSY
at a pop-up gallery in Toronto.
This is the largest Banksy exhibit ever assembled, with more than 80 pieces on display (one was recently stolen as the exhibit was being set up – shame).
Of course I will take my camera, but between here and there I will surely notice something that will catch my eye. I may photograph it, or it may inspire a poem; you can never tell how art will affect you.
What I do know is that I will keep my eyes, and my mind, open to art.
Art reminds us where we are, where we have been, and where we are going.
Art is not only a reason to go somewhere, but a reason to feel something.
Enjoy the art of everyday life that surrounds us, consumes us, and makes each day more bearable.
