The sun sets on another day...

Outside is almost clear, but the smoke still hangs from the west coast. So far away but still an effect on us all.

I was thinking about the smoke as I watched the sunset. It was not big, but it added to the sunset as it swirled in the upper sky. I wondered if it added or took away from the sunset, but it was there. In the end it is there, and I need to accept it for what it is: Just another addition to savor, just another moment that I will overcome.

Wouldn't life be better if we have that opinion about most everything. We can accept those things that we have no control over? There is an old Indian prayer that covers many items but one is to accept the things you cannot change. Perhaps we would be better each day if we not only did that, but understood enough to know the difference. It is worth considering.

So as the sun sets on another day, perhaps Monday will bring new fun and excitement, and perhaps every day should have a little smoke, just so we understand that life is pretty good, because we are in it. Find your path and make it a good one each day, and don't worry about those things you can't change. Enjoy the day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy the haze...
