It is hard to know
what to say, or
how to say it,
so often we
Silence stops the
but it does not
stop the thoughts.

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 . . .
A sign I’ve been glancing at, daily, since I noticed it a week back at a regular coffee stop where I try to begin my day with a dark roast cup of bravery.
I try to take the time, every morning, to scribble out my current considerations, deliberations, and contemplations on images and memories that have come to me in my dreams and in reality.
If your first meal of the day is the most important, shouldn’t your first thoughts be as well?
Take time to write them down. It’s important. What you are thinking affects how you continue to navigate your self through the coming hours or weeks.
“The bravest thing you can be is yourself.”
How much courage is required to make it through the remainder of the day? Is a single cup of coffee enough to provide the fortitude required to step further into the day?
It’s a good start.
I'm like a pencil;
Still I write.

The Mystic Muffin is open again.
The humble downtown Toronto shop at the corner of Jarvis & Church has been COVID closed for two months, but the store’s owner had to get the place back up and running for its 27th anniversary.
“I don’t even look like I’ve been here 27 years,” Elias says with wry smile.
Mystic Muffin is one of those places you just happen upon, and then keep going back. Many people do. It’s more than a coffee stop.
A sign on the building boasts about the “World’s Best Apple Cake” and, after tasting it, who is going to doubt it? The muffins are wonderful and the pasta salad is a favorite.
Mystic Muffin is fresh, fast and friendly. Pick up something when you are in the neighbourhood.
Where else are you going to get a medium coffee, muffin and love for $3.50?
