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.

define your inner chorus

pay attention to many voices

occupying the mind


opposition or harmony

think out loud each thought

speaking in the moment


be not cautious in pronunciation

sing out your observations

chorus to verse


words take on new meaning

when allowed to reverberate

through a soul

Give yourself permission to take the day off.
   No explanation needed, no guilt required, it is your choice,
   It’s okay.

It is step-by-step, day-to-day,
walking or wandering, simply
trying to keep pace. Moving
purposefully at the speed of
life, one way at a time. Now.
Any distance between here
and there is dependent mainly
on your attitude. Keep moving,
despite uncertainty of direction.
Pay attention to the landscape.
Be mindful of your approach.
Take it in stride. Breathe and
believe in the journey and you
will surely find a destination.
Continue forward. Walk on.
