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.

This day is important

Today, September 21, is
International Day of Peace.

Think about it; not so much
the actual date, but think
about peace.

World Peace.

Inner Peace.

Peace amongst people.

People amidst peace.

International Day of Peace
was established in 1981 by
the United Nations.

This day is important, but
shouldn’t everyday be about

Is it possible?

Think about it.


“If everyone demanded peace
instead of another television set, 
then there would be peace.”
-John Lennon

Mondays are just young Fridays

It is Election Day in Canada.
   It is the end of a short, nasty federal campaign that will — in all likelihood — make very little change to the political landscape.
   That’s sad.
   Voting is important.
   We vote because we can.
   I’m more comfortable knowing that I am exercising my democratic right than I am thinking that I am participating in the politics of it all.

intermittent stops
Posted on September 19, 2021 by j.g.lewisLeave a comment

where have I been?
my mind takes me
places, now and then,
intermittent stops
between cities where
I have been and
somewhere I have
never traveled.
only in dreams
have these realities
where can I go?
