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

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.

of interest

your knowledge is
your currency

save up for what
you need or desire

there is interest
in your wisdom

all my flaws

Who can you blame?
Are the feelings unjust when a decision is a matter of knowing you must find fault or favour with the ill winds of change?
It is never enough to simply rearrange plans or predicaments. It is like making a prediction of all my flaws with my faith as fractured or fragile as it is, or has been.
Far easier to see what I haven’t been doing.

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

What Catches Your Attention?

Posted on January 2, 2021 by j.g.lewis // 2 Comments

I’m on Pinterest.
Actually, I’ve been on Pinterest for quite some time, I’ve just never been as consistent, or organized, or as committed as I intended when I signed up a few years ago.
I’d add photos and content, in fits and starts, in random periods. I even forgot about it for a while, but realized yesterday that I had added more than I thought, over time.
There’s a lot to see.
Pinterest is inspiring.
What catches your interest?
I post photos, quotes, poetry, journaling info, stuff from my website, or things that catch my attention.
My user name is jg_lewis
Come and have a look.
What do you post?
I’d love to see your pins and boards. Send me your user name. Let me know what captures your imagination.

Pinterest fulfills my window-shopping cravings. I’m a serial browser from way back, because I don’t actually like owning a bunch of stuff, or the act of shopping all that much, but I LOVE looking at beautiful things, and I dig the convenience of having millions of beautiful things in my pocket. Mostly I pin clothes I’m never going to buy, projects I’m never going to do, food I doubt I’ll ever make, and quotes about procrastination…

I love to look, and read, as see the art (and fascinations) of other people. I just found you, followed you, and will look for ,ore inspiration. Happy New Year my friend. peace.
