life notes; flaws and all

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

Each morning, every morning, there is time to consider plans for the day, for the weeks, months, perhaps years ahead.
   Formulated in quiet thought, these goals might not be concrete, or complete, but they are personal reminders of what can be achieved over time.
   If I write them down they seem real; more than dreams and wishes. Maybe even more than I should ask for, or more than I am allowed?
   Only time will tell.

Enjoy

Comfort food,
as the temperature dips.

Favorites.

Restaurant special,
mom’s recipe or
make it up as you go.

Is there a better day
than today?

Be nourished.

Take the time
to enjoy.

Remember the leftovers.

Expression

Art is subjective,

graffiti destructive,

or is it

expressive?

I'm like a pencil;
sometimes sharp,
most days
well-rounded,
other times
dull or
occasionally
broken.
Still I write.

Postcards From Afar

Posted on June 16, 2020 by j.g.lewis Leave a comment

We have all been a little preoccupied by this virus thing.
We’ve spent more time at home than we have in years.
With all the social isolation and physical distancing, our wanderlust has been clipped.
Travel has been restricted, but not the mail.
Send me a postcard from home.
Tell me something about where you live; a little-known fact, something significant or another thing you think somebody needs to know (maybe even a secret). Perhaps a poem, limerick, or haiku. . . tell me what home means to you.
Don’t just send a card; send a message.
Postcards will be included this October during homecoming month at mythosandmarginalia.com
During October, contributing writers will offer impressions of home, where it is and what it means to them.
Postcards From Afar is intended to add a global perspective and make this planet a little smaller, and a little closer.
I’d love to hear from you.
For coordinates and further information on the postcard project, email
soultalk@mythosandmarginalia.com
I will write back.
