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.

Home For The Holidays

Posted on December 22, 2019 by j.g.lewis Leave a comment

Last Friday was the busiest travel day of the year at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport with more than 170,000 people headed in different directions. The travelers and their families were going on vacation, or going home for the holidays.
This is an important time of the year to get together with loved ones, an important time to go the distance to feel the love you feel you’ve neglected, or avoided.
Whether you are going or coming, welcome home. I wish you safe passage.
For many, it is not always possible to get home, or to find home. As our lives change, our perception of what is home, or where we live, is transformed.
Home is not always a place or destination, but a feeling.
Home is a place you can visit without leaving where you are.
Home can be that kind of place.
Home is a place where we feel the warmth and memories of those who are no longer with us, or can’t make it home.
You don’t have to travel far.
Be at home with yourself.
Happy holidays.
