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.

Autumnal Equinox
Posted on September 23, 2021 by j.g.lewisLeave a comment

Autumn now,
it gets darker

Autumnal Equinox.
Daylight hours equal
to the night,
for a while.

Nightfall provides
more time to think
                or to rest.

Darkness offers silence.

Where will you go
in the night? What will
you do with your light?

What Now Mr. Trudeau?
Posted on September 22, 2021 by j.g.lewisLeave a comment

So what will you do now, Mr. Trudeau?
   Monday’s results show that very little has changed since you called the election a little over a month ago; but reality is deceiving.
   Canada is hurting.
   My country is hurting more than it was when you called this election in August.
   So what will you and your minority government do now, Mr. Trudeau?
   Certainly you thought you could do more when you called this election in the middle of a pandemic. Somehow you thought that you could gain more power by calling an election when you did.
   But you didn’t.
   You now, as you did before, require the backing of another party to do anything you want to do.
   Just like before.
   But it is not like before.
   You have weakened your position by weakening this country.
You, Mr. Trudeau, have weakened this country spiritually, morally and financially.
   My country is more fractured, more polarized, more confused, and a lot less healthy than it was a little over a month ago.
   It is more about what you have done than what you will do.
   This election did not help.
   So, what now Mr. Trudeau?
