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.

   Even in silence
  quiet speaks volumes.
     In absence of music
            melody remains.
     With uncertainty
     there can be harmony.
    When questions stop
    answers start.
      Even without light,
                 there is
                         still art.

night thoughts 3:16

Unredeemed promises
breathing down your neck,
signals from a different
place, a distant past.
Unworthy, still awake at
3:16 a.m., not knowing
what then possessed me,
and what I now need to do
to reclaim my place.
I’m not thinking like before,
so why would I even consider
it now. I’ve moved forward,
but can’t forget. Words still
remain on the page.

What beliefs, thoughts, or
random confusion, keeps you
awake at night?
Does it happen often?
How do you deal with it,
at the time, or in the days and
weeks that follow?
I don’t wish to believe in the
soul-sucking cacophony of
ego-battling ideologies,
but I’ve become drawn into
the debate simply as a means
of protecting my humanity, or
maintaining my sanity.
It’s not fair, and it is not
right, but at 4:04 a.m.,
I find myself searching for
ways to protect myself.
How do you keep yourself
safe from spineless demons or
or self-centered shareholders
concerned with only profit or
