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

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 . . .
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.

We, generally, question ourselves daily, but more specifically on days like today or the one before, or a few weeks before that.
The resounding questions of why are overwhelming and obvious.
Sadly the solution is not.
It seems so insane to say we have ot have greater faith in humankind when the tragedies we see and feel are neither kinda nor humane.
But what else have we got if we don’t have faith?
It becomes harder and harder to have faith in the self, in the system, in spirituality or religion, but we must.
Now is the time to be strong; questioning our faith will only make us weaker.
