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.

Where Are You Going?
Posted on January 28, 2020 by j.g.lewisLeave a comment

It gets confusing, often
going the same direction or
moving at the same speed.
At times you don’t even know
if you are stepping forward, or
running away?
You might not even know your
true destination, or how long
you may have been avoiding
Where are you going?

Mondays are just young Fridays

Everybody has a story.
Everybody has an excuse.
Everybody has
something to gain,
everybody has something
to lose.

What is today’s story?
What is your excuse?
What is your
reason for being?
What has become
of little use?

Now is the real story.
Now is your time to move.
Now, think about
the possibilities.
Now is
your time to choose.

Wonder Of It All
Posted on January 26, 2020 by j.g.lewisLeave a comment

Curiosity overwhelms, overtakes reason, many times escapes logic, and all it will do is keep you wondering.
Curiosity has several levels, a range of qualities, and is the fundamental force behind any question. The wonder of curiosity can rarely be explained. Were it not for curiosity, little would have been discovered, except by accident.
That’s something else to wonder about?
