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

So, I make mistakes.
   An oversight or three, here and there, or an error or lack of judgment can (and will) happen. My lack of foresight simply happens.
   We do not learn from our mistakes, but rather we learn from the experience.
   You cannot prepare yourself for all probabilities knowing a mistake is a likely possibility.
   Pay attention.
   Experience comes from noticing what you are paying attention to.

That Moon


Maybe this Moon

with the power it bleeds

      will illuminate more

      unnecessary violence

     and greed.

       Maybe this Moon

         has memories

    it simply cannot forget.

       Some of us will relate

    while others regret.

  Maybe that Moon knows

        what it is all worth

   and sets an example

       for those looking up

         from this earth.

it was so

     scarcely we remember
       humble beginnings

   the when
                the where

     not consequential

   the why
        a true miracle

     for a time
     it was so

                 until it wasn’t

there are no humble endings

     but we are humbled
     by even its existence

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

We live all across this magnificent planet: a global community.
We speak a multitude of languages and dialects, each of us calling another place home.
We are of different backgrounds, race, age, gender or orientation; each of us as different as the next.
We are who we are, and we are all here.
Where we are changes occasionally, if not geographically, then emotionally, or physically, politically or spiritually.
Who we are is what we are, wherever we are.
We are all different, yet we share more commonalities than differences. That, itself, is pretty amazing, but we can share more.
We can care more.
We can be more.
Now is a good time to begin.

This month, on this page, I have invited a group of writers to share this space with me.
This month, on this page, the topic is Where We Are.
The submissions are overwhelming. Some of the writers got very personal, others asked questions of themselves, or society in general. Yes, there are commonalities, but from different perspectives.
It is overwhelming.
It provides a complex view of where we are.
It provokes thought.
Please check back throughout this month and see how a group of writers from across this planet can define where we are, and, perhaps, help determine where we can go.
