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.

What’s Going On Now
Posted on August 1, 2021 by j.g.lewisLeave a comment

A voice from the past with a view from the present, Friday’s release of the first posthumous album by Prince is more than you expect from an artist who you never knew what to expect from.
   Recorded in 2010, during the Obama administration, Prince was writing and singing about what’s going on now.
   In the matter-of-fact lyrics on Welcome 2 America, throughout the album Prince explores themes of racism, religion, celebrity, corporate greed and life as he saw it, then.
   We get to hear it now, eleven years after it was recorded, five years after the man’s untimely death.
   It was worth the wait.
   Welcome 2 America has more than a soulful, lasting quality.
