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.

I wish you peace.
I wish you love.
I wish for you
a little more of
whatever brings
you happiness
this day and beyond …

Oh, Come, All Ye Faithful

I am going to church tonight. It’s not something I often do.
I haven’t been in a while; I’m not what you would call one of the faithful.
I am not even what you would call religious… but I am spiritual.
I believe in humanity, and tonight I want to hear voices.
I want to listen to the choir.
I want to listen to the congregation.
I want to listen to the memories that come with the music, on this night of all nights.
I want to feel at peace.
I want to feel the peace.
I want to believe that peace is possible.
I want to wish you peace on earth, in your world and mine.

A few days away from the everyday,
time off (if you can get it) for reasons
religious, spiritual, or otherwise …
a holiday around a date.
Its significance means what you
want it to mean. Be truthful.
For many it is time with family or
friends; some will travel far and wide,
you may simply stay home.
Enjoy your moments.
Feel the comfort.
Happy Holidays.
