Sense and Sensibility
(Not Unrelated to Procrastination)

mornings observing sunlight or foggy
mist, rain, sleet or snow, the feeling is...
let's say luxurious or maybe enticed with promise
or aspects of freedom accompanying the daily coin pouch

with unspent hours
that might leisurely be traded later
to achieve needed & desired task completions in
some efficient order yielding a sense of accomplishment

much different than at mid-
night's turn with the pouch light in
emptiness and the weight of tomorrow's not
yet sensed, with the sense of another opportunity;

not necessarily so if your
days are filled with torture, imprisonment,
misunderstanding or perhaps the slow painfully
wasting away into death from a cancer that knows

bounds nor respect.
In truth, we see dimly through
the imperfect lenses of our lives.
Reality, not apart from opportunity,

not easily recognized
nor appreciated in thankfulness
for what it is. We must not, you see,
be in one place without prayerfully seeing another.


(From the December 18th 2005 Entry
 in the Journal of a Computer Jockey
 by James I. Petersen,


Many of our cards are also available as art prints…
the perfect blend of poster and prose
suitable for framing.
