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 . . .

Mondays are just young Fridays

What are a few days between seasons? As if a shadow could tell of the time and temperature range from hour to day, today or tomorrow, or last season.
   Summer to fall. Now is not a fixed period, as was yesterday or last week. Those periods of time are fluid, ever changing, but still somewhat definite in our minds for the time being representing the periods or eras of our presence here on earth.
   How we measure our time, any time, always includes a proviso. The conditions we set will influence what is to come, as much as what has happened.
   How can you explain yourself when a short-term view overrides the obvious long-term accumulation of thought and experience.
   This time is yours; how you chose to share it will differ from day to day.

You wander.
We all do.

Uncertainty can often
blur your surroundings.


The map is always there,
the lines signify the path
you need to follow.

You simply have to find
the direction.

It is all in your hands.

               Anguish or confusion, 
        sometimes it is the way. 
      Anxiety takes over. 
        What else can you say  
     as you try to put aside all 
     the feelings that dog you 
   anyway.    No pain today.  
           Try as you might to
    see your way through. 
       No pain.    Not today.

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

Commencement of an idea: a blank canvas.
    What you think and what you believe, at times, are on non-collinear planes.
    Separate thoughts.
    The concept is not clear, but there is a distinct vision. Time is required to sort out the polarities.
    I know I need colour, right now, to breakout of the homogeneous pattern of darkness I have settled into; a forced change might best state the obvious.
    An interruption at least, a new perspective at best. Figurative or metaphorical, abstract thought equals diversion.
    Random colours introduced, aware of the concept, but more or less tentative. Time is required, further consideration, to see what will dominate because, proportions aside, each colour is equal.
    The divergent nature of complimentary contrasts is not colorfast.
    My mood or mindset, over time, will sort out what goes where. Spontaneity has its place but has yet to show itself.
    It is a process as much as it is progress.
    No concern yet with accomplishment because, some days, simply picking up the paintbrush is as much an achievement as anything.
    Thinking is believing.
