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.

Life Requirement
Posted on August 22, 2020 by j.g.lewisLeave a comment

Art does not need to be understood as much as it needs to be created. For the moment art is conceived, captured, or undertaken, there is more than an understanding. There is a will.
Creation, in any form or media, demonstrates ideals and vision, its satisfies curiosity and proves a worth greater than any material possession.
Without question, art stands on its own. The statement it makes — however elementary or complex — does not need to be appreciated as much as it simply needs to be.
Art is like breath, it happens organically and is required for life to continue moving forward.


What Can You Say?

What will you write when
there is nothing left to say,
when your thoughts are as
empty as a thin wanting page,
or the meaning has been lost
somewhere along the way?
What can you write?
What can you say?
If you begin with the truth
you can accept this new day.
