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 . . .

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

As You Wander

Gather your thoughts,
be calm
through the day.
Find balance
and confidence
as you wander
your own way.
Be curious
and open-minded,
for the wonders
will never cease.
Let go
of all your worries,
pick up the peace.

we apologize
for the things we do not do
for the wrong reasons

You Never Know

It’s a new day.
Some of us went to bed
with disappointments,
others woke to surprises.
You never know
what each day holds.
Couldn’t we all use a good day?
Try today to make something
happen, maybe for yourself, or
maybe you could help
someone else?
You can do that.
We all can.
Humans need humans.
It all begins with kindness.
If you are reading this, I hope
something great happens
to you today.
