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.

Mondays are just young Fridays

I took a walk through the downtown early yesterday morning as the city’s first snowfall began to accumulate.
   The temperature and the wind-chill have been chilly in Toronto the past couple of days, but the precipitation seemed to officially mark the change of season. Winter has arrived.
   The fluffy “Charlie Brown” snowflakes seemed to warm things up.
   The snow continued through the day and the world of white outside the window somehow seemed silent and safe.
   It’s a nice feeling.

We Are Fearful
Posted on November 28, 2021 by j.g.lewisLeave a comment

News of another COVID-19 variant is spreading fast.
   Omicron, has only come to light over the past few days and already countries across the globe — including Canada — are announcing international travel restrictions
   This is another setback with a potentially more contagious variant two years into a pandemic that has killed millions of people and disrupted our lives on every level.
   We have experienced too much disease and death to not take this seriously.
   Of course we are fearful.
   Is it the fear of what we don’t know, or the fear of knowing?
