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 . . .

these days

tomorrow is another chance

but what about today?

Mondays are just young Fridays

Morning fog limits perspective.
As much surprise as wonder,
as isolating as illuminating,
we naturally want to see further.
Your vantage point stays the same.
Captivated throughout the day,
you may well stand where you are,
only the focal point broadens.Daylight eventually finds its way,
you can easily see the difference.
Darkness will come, it always does,
the view will be different tomorrow.

hold the image
speak the silence
feel the clarity

I'm like a pencil;
sometimes sharp,
most days
other times
dull or
Still I write.

I often question whether the darkness heals more than it hurts, or if night provides enough rest for the weary.
   Lately, I am tired.
   I believe we are all a little run-down right now. The past couple of years have been draining, wearing the psyche right to the soul. Society is hurting. We all feel it.
   It seems we have lived a period of prolonged darkness in which the shadow will live with us for quite some time.
   We can’t ignore what has happened, or what is happening, but at some point we will have to look past whatever is going on personally if we want to get ahead.
   We must emerge from the difficulties and despair of the past and find hope for the future.
   Spring is a time of renewal
   Step forward into the light.
