The sun sets on another day

The fury of the storm obscured the sunset. The storm was swift. The storm was brutal. Mostly the storm was beautiful. 

Sometimes the things that we find beautiful in life have a little danger associated with them. This is not necessarily a bad thing, beauty and danger have always been close bedfellows. Imagine a rose without a thorn, not really a rose anymore.

Anyway, I was fascinated at how brutal this storm was tonight. The lightning came in wave after wave as the wind rocked my poor little car from side to side. Any other time it would have been scary but I was calm. I enjoyed the moment and laughed with the storm and not at it.

 Is there anything in your life then you find beautiful but that is dangerous? I know many people define fear in many places either because of the past or because of apprehension over the future. Do you see things like this? Is it a good thing or a bad thing? 

I think we should try to embrace all that we can and when we find the beauty that is within our grasp maybe we should enjoy it even with a little danger. So yes I will sit outside with my tripod and try to catch the lightning. Yes I will enjoy the fury of the storm. Yes to so many things that may bite back but are worth the risk. Sounds like fun. 

So as the sun sets on another day try hard to see past the danger. See the beauty in all that you can. We should all try hard see the best in everything and enjoy ourselves each and every day, no matter what.

 Sleep sweet, love life, and find your way to happiness...
