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.

Get Your Shot

More than 60 percent of Canadians have received a first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, while eight percent of the country is considered “fully vaccinated”.
I know the number went it up slightly yesterday as I took my second shot.
Variants aside, and with a couple of weeks to allow this juice to circulate and be absorbed through my body, I will be considered fully vaccinated.
I’m relieved.
It’s a pretty big step.
I got a little emotional.
I realized that soon, while still taking precautions, we will all be able to gather closer with friends and family.
This shot allows me to dream a little more of soon seeing my daughter.
I’m now more confident than optimistic of months and weeks until travel, rather than the unpredictable inevitable.
We will be able to hug soon (soon being a relative term).
Remember, this vaccine is not just for you; it is for everyone.
Get your shot when you can, as soon as you can.
