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 . . .

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.

Mondays are just young Fridays

We tire of unpredictable weather, the damp morning chill, wet socks and lost mittens. Winter keeps reminding it is not through with us.
   We have suffered long enough.
   The streets are tired and dirty and the time change only makes things darker in the morning.
   We need a brighter view.
   We need, now, the renewal that comes with spring.

Progress comes less from planning than participation.
Dreams and wishes require action and attention.
Start moving.

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.
