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 . . .

What are a few days between seasons? As if a shadow could tell of the time and temperature range from hour to day, today or tomorrow, or last season.
   Summer to fall. Now is not a fixed period, as was yesterday or last week. Those periods of time are fluid, ever changing, but still somewhat definite in our minds for the time being representing the periods or eras of our presence here on earth.
   How we measure our time, any time, always includes a proviso. The conditions we set will influence what is to come, as much as what has happened.
   How can you explain yourself when a short-term view overrides the obvious long-term accumulation of thought and experience.
   This time is yours; how you chose to share it will differ from day to day.

You wander.
We all do.

Uncertainty can often
blur your surroundings.


The map is always there,
the lines signify the path
you need to follow.

You simply have to find
the direction.

It is all in your hands.

               Anguish or confusion, 
        sometimes it is the way. 
      Anxiety takes over. 
        What else can you say  
     as you try to put aside all 
     the feelings that dog you 
   anyway.    No pain today.  
           Try as you might to
    see your way through. 
       No pain.    Not today.

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

I need to make some changes this week.
   There are a few things on my list (this goes well past resetting the clocks), all of them intended to change, in some way, the way I live or have lived.
   I feel it is time.
   We have all come through a year of change. Many of the changes were unexpected, some of them demanded of us, but nevertheless it was change. We didn’t know it would take this long and, for a while, it seemed it wouldn’t, or it wasn’t.
   And we are still changing. We are adapting. We are adjusting.
   We are (or we should be) evolving.
   Change doesn’t need to be a complete transformation, in fact; the slightest change may end up as your sweet salvation. But you need to change. You may need it more than you think; you might not even realize what is required or why it is necessary.
   There are so many reasons for change and they change, as we do.
   We need to change even if for no reason other than change.
   The things that might have worked may no longer be working. Or could it be we are no longer working for change? The answers may differ, but the questions are always about change.
   Time changes, the seasons change and we have all changed before (whether we care to admit it, or not).
   Change is inevitable. Change is undeniable.
   Change can be a wonderful thing.
   Or change can be frightening.
   Welcome the change.
