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.

Canadian Music

Posted on June 29, 2019 by j.g.lewis Leave a comment

The Canada Day weekend: three
days of rest and relaxation. I’ve got
nothing planned, but enjoying the
sunshine, some barbecue and beer,
Scrabble, and the fine music of this
wonderful country.
I’m looking forward to a Toronto
Symphony Orchestra matinee on
Sunday (you simply can’t beat a live
performance), but yesterday I began
dipping into my record collection
and selecting some of the great
Canadian albums I’ve amassed over
the decades.
This is my all-Canadian weekend, a
celebration of this country’s culture.
There is a wealth of Canadian talent,
and music has long been one of our
greatest exports.
I’ve been flipping through my vinyl
and compact discs, and playing the
stuff that strikes a chord. There is
always memories in the music.
I’ve been posting album covers on
Instagram as I go:   jg_lewis
I meant to post more last night, but
simply got caught up in the music.
Drop by my feed, and let me know
about the Canadian music that
appeals to you.
Enjoy your weekend, as I will be
enjoying mine. Turn it up!
