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

What are a few days between seasons? As if a shadow could tell of the time and temperature range from hour to day, today or tomorrow, or last season.
   Summer to fall. Now is not a fixed period, as was yesterday or last week. Those periods of time are fluid, ever changing, but still somewhat definite in our minds for the time being representing the periods or eras of our presence here on earth.
   How we measure our time, any time, always includes a proviso. The conditions we set will influence what is to come, as much as what has happened.
   How can you explain yourself when a short-term view overrides the obvious long-term accumulation of thought and experience.
   This time is yours; how you chose to share it will differ from day to day.

You wander.
We all do.

Uncertainty can often
blur your surroundings.


The map is always there,
the lines signify the path
you need to follow.

You simply have to find
the direction.

It is all in your hands.

               Anguish or confusion, 
        sometimes it is the way. 
      Anxiety takes over. 
        What else can you say  
     as you try to put aside all 
     the feelings that dog you 
   anyway.    No pain today.  
           Try as you might to
    see your way through. 
       No pain.    Not today.

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.
