The sun sets on another day...

There are few perfect days in the world, some would say there are none, others would say they are all perfect. Either could be correct, but only how it applies to them. As I felt the breeze blow through the window today I felt good, and as I drove to watch sunset that feeling was still there. As I arrived the clouds had closed in and only a little color was evident, but I saw a thin glimmer on the horizon, I knew a great moment was coming.

As we waited for the edge of night the color suddenly blasted out of the far away clouds. Unleashed it painted the sky and clouds, and the result was stunning. Many people had left the strip to the side of the lake, but those of us that remained gasped and were excited by what lay before us.

Sometimes you just have to enjoy the breeze, have a little patience, and see what comes. Often the world shows or gives us something amazing, but we were already moving on to something else and miss it. I am going to suggest we stop for a moment, listen, feel the cool breeze and don't run away, but wait for something fun to come along. Sometimes it will, and sometimes it won't, but when it does, wow, it will be worth it. Patience, it works.

So as the sun sets on another day, sunset was fantastic. I feel bad for the people who left and missed it, but am glad I took the time. Take the extra minute, enjoy the sunset, enjoy all you can every day of everything you love, and make today a great day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love deeply, and live for the positives...

The sun sets on another day...

The clouds rolled in, but not the rain. Still the twilight was fun as the haze crossed the sky.

I enjoy watching life. Life is amazing, and grand, and in the end life is a series of fantastic moments tied together with, well, us. After all, without us there is no definition for anything that is happening, no definition to life in general. The old joke is of course "If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?" and the revised joke should be "If the sunsets pass fay by day and there is no one there to view them, do they matter?" An odd thought huh? It is a thought built on a simple idea, what is life if you don't enjoy it. What is your day if you do not see it.

Just think about it for a few.

So as the sun sets on another day, life is here to be seen, to be experienced, to be lived. Make your life the best ever each day. Make your days memorable, and in the end it will be worthwhile, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and keep an eye on it...

The sun sets on another day...

Sunset was again stunning. The sky was filled with color, and the people sat in their cars and watched the sun fall behind the clouds, laughing, smiling, crying and more all the time.

I live in the country. Not far from the city, but not on the beaten path either. The temperatures have been cool this year, perhaps cold until a few weeks ago. Now the area is green, luch, and continues to bloom. This week the ferns rose, and it is a sight to see.

The ferns are between 2 and 3 feet tall, some taller, and blanket the forest as far as you can see. A few weeks ago there were fallen trees, limbs, sticks and more, but now there is a thickening blanket of green just above the ground, and that blanket does a few fun things. First, it makes the forest look uniform. Every where is beautiful, if you like ferns. Second it keeps moisture in the ground, and things grow, boy do they grow, third it hides small animals. the area is full of hawks, owls, eagles and more, and the squirrels and chipmunk are now beneath the canopy. Last, silence abounds. The ferns absorb a lot of the sound. What was quiet in winder is as quiet now save for frogs, toads and crickets, and even they are quieter because of the canopy.

Who cares, right? Well, my weird point is as I watched the ferns I thought of all the people who have walls up, and how those walls tend to do the same. They hide us, make us look better, and quiet the things rolling around about us simply because they are a cover. It looks good and all, but eventually, it all uncovers again and you will have to clean it up. That is the bad thing about ferns, they are seasonal.

Something to consider at least.

So as the sun sets on another day, it would be better if the ground were clear under the ferns. It would be better if we didn't need our walls to hide who we were. Maybe we need to clear out our selves and use the cover just as decoration, and make our life as real as it can be. After all, if we only have 29000 sunsets, maybe our best time would be used enjoying life, not covering it up, but instead making it beautiful. Make your life full of beauty, and enjoy the sunset, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love always, and be happy all you can...

The sun sets on another day...

As you see the picture you will know, sunset was spectacular. A small veil of clouds added a fiery blanket to the slowly descending orb, and as I sat at my car I smiled at the beauty around me.

I would say there isn't much to say, but there is always a lot to say. The couple in the next car were talkative, they were almost giddy with the opportunity to see another amazing sunset. Then, in the midst of it all, a care stopped in front of me, deposited a person, parked, and ran out in front of everyone to stand and take a picture of the sunset.

There are two sides to this. One of course is they were oblivious to all of the people behind them taking pictures and enjoying the sunset, the other is of course that we were oblivious to their joy in seeing this most perfect sunset in front of us. Of course I smiled, laughed, and got a good picture and I hope they did as well, but it is cool either way to be focused on the beauty around us.

It is easy to see either side, or quite a few morte, but my only suggestion today is that you, I and everyone else try to see beyond themselves for just a moment. See it from someone else's viewpoint, and perhaps this will allow us to see a little more. Don't be oblivious to the world, and don't let the world be oblivious to you. It works, it would make the world a better place.

So as the sun sets on another day, be aware we are not alone. It is a big world. Be aware that other are here, and try to be nice along the way, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and see the world...
