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 . . .

Which way are you going?
What route will you follow?
Where will it take you?

Mondays are just young Fridays

The clock and the calendar move
forward incrementally, naturally
(as it should be) from a darker
winter we can’t leave behind to
something resembling spring.
In-between our seasons we take
whatever we can, where we are.
We have little choice.
A less-than-enthusiastic forecast
glares at me from a mobile device,
with greater chance of soakers
more than once or twice in the
week ahead as atmospheric rivers
come down to earth (a convenient
excuse for all it’s worth).
April showers still to come, as it
happens, as it is always done, we
keep moving forward step-by-step
mainly in spite of the weather.

of interest

your knowledge is
your currency

save up for what
you need or desire

there is interest
in your wisdom

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

The number of daily Canadian COVID-19 cases reported on the radio this morning was less than what this province was reporting in a day not that long ago.
Most cases reported were from Ontario, but they have been dropping pretty much daily for the last week.
This is a good thing.
We’re heading in the right direction.
Governments are loosening up restrictions, some businesses in some regions are reopening or realigning, and people are out and about.
It’s a good thing to see.
We’re. Still. Here.
These have been a trying couple of months and life might feel like it could be returning to normal, but we have to remember the facts.
This. Is. A. Deadly. Virus.
There is no vaccine. The corona virus can be spread so easily, and so carelessly.
COVID-19 kills.
Physical distancing and our social behaviors must remain habits.
Prevention is self-preservation.
This virus will remain a danger for some time to come.
Be safe.
Wash your hands. Wear a mask. Reduce your impact on how we are all living.
If we all do our part, we can keep this thing moving in the right direction.
