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.

your destination

By mission,
or mistake,
this became
your destination.
Millions of people
don’t have a choice
where they end up.
Think about it.
You are here.
What are you
going to do
about it?

We all have to answer…

Is it a question of the ages,
or something asked of each
   Right now, both experienced
old men and novice wannabes
are being questioned about
their purpose, potential, or
   Don’t we all have to answer
to something or somebody?
   Instead of questioning
authority, what should we be
asking of ourselves?
   Find your own solution.

uneasy relationship
Posted on February 23, 2022 by j.g.lewisLeave a comment

   Year three settles in, months and weeks of
pandemic pain, what little
    has been gained.    Still unknown how much
    we have lost.
Social distancing affected all of us, isolation increases
   the uneasy relationship between
    propaganda and fact peddled by social media and
supported by those unwilling to accept the truth.
   Them who claim it to be freedom
     show no empathy
   to those who have lost
    partners, parents and possibilities.
