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.

Those moments when you heal,
   occasions when you feel
     it is all opening up.

       It might not last
       as long as you like.

Take notice of those emotions.



        This is what you need.
I wish you one of those days.

Take A Stand
Posted on June 2, 2021 by j.g.lewisLeave a comment

An active pacifist,
I am                        resilient, steadfast,
passive,                  yet passionate
about all that inspires me.


                         at times confusing,
       we take a stand when we can
but not always
when we should.
                                                  Do we
choose to ignore
the significantly unsettling actions
of them who believe in something else?


How can we know
the truth untold, but
exhibited so many ways?

Are we not blessed
with perception?                    Can we
know the ignorance evident
in public displays of rejection?

Stand up for what matters.
Make it matter.          More.

                                                  Can you
believe in your heart, in
your soul?            In me?

There is so much more to say.
Will you?              Speak up.

something to think about
Posted on June 1, 2021 by j.g.lewisLeave a comment

It is the first day of June, and it is Tuesday.
While it is the second day of the week, it is the first day of the month; that doesn’t happen often. In fact, it will happen only once in 2021.
A month began on a Tuesday only one other time in the past year.
September 1st, 2020 was a Tuesday. Now it is history, like today will be tomorrow.
Today is the day, or it is that month?
There are seven days to the week, but Tuesday is the only seven-letter day in the bunch. Is it coincidence, or was it planned that way?
That’s something to think about all day.
