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.

The traffic patterns of daily life; the
congestion on the streets and sidewalks
can be overwhelming.
We have all got somewhere to go,
somewhere to be, today as with any day.
Moving far too fast, as if it is expected
of us, we struggle to keep up.
Stay safe.
Try to stay in your own lane.
Let others in; be courteous to those
who feel they need to get there faster.
Try to enjoy the journey.
We’ve all got somewhere to be.

Dawn will come, it always does.

It may take a little longer, depending on your mood.
It might not be as bright as expected, but few of us are.

It will last such a brief moment.

Dawn is like that.

You may have to wait through the darkness for some time,
full daylight arrives, except soon the moment will disappear.

So much left unsaid.

So little to say for yourself.

It comes without thinking, yet
there is so much anticipation.

Dawn appears just like that.

You have waited long enough.
