The sun sets on another day...

It could have been the worst sunset ever, it could have, would have, should have, but no, as a friend and I waited, we knew, there on the edge of the day sat a sunset waiting to happen. The clouds were thick and like a dark blanket, covering up all but the most minimal light. We watched and in the distance, far across the freshwater ocean, there was a clearing. We waited, we knew. Where usually there are dozens of photographers, there was a smattering, only a few, and even less with real cameras, most playing with their smartphones, hoping. Cars came and left while we waited, their patience not there, 

This was a moment of patience, we waited, and suddenly the water was lit up like Christmas in, well, in December. We waited and watched. Slowly the sun worked it's way down the horizon, and the sunset did not disappoint, it was awe inspiring. It was fantastic and amazing, and worth the wait.

Sometimes in life we are faced with long and short waits. Some people are quick to see what they think is a situation, make a decision and move on, some are very slow and pass the decision completely, while others see the possibilities, and wait patiently until what they want comes along. Now sometimes this is difficult, but usually, if you are paying attention, it is worth it. All I am trying to say is pay attention, and if there is a possibility for something, be patient. If there is not, move on.

So as the sun sets on another day, thanks for all the concern about my hand, I am fine. It was just a fun time last night. More than that, pay attention to how you proceed in life, if it is good, go with it, bad, find a way around, but if you pay attention remember patience sometimes pays off, and you could come out way ahead. Find happiness no matter what you do, and laugh the night away.

Sleep sweet, love life, and find your way each day...

The sun sets on another day...

So many people see pain as the worst thing in their life. Pain can hurt, unless you are Patrick Swayze in "Roadhouse" getting stapled. Pain is to be avoided, to be feared, and it builds us each and every day, and makes us avoid the little and the big things in life.

So do we have to? Is pain in any form enough to drive us away always? The firefighter knows the pain of the fire, but he rushes forward. The Policeman knows there is a possibility of pain always, but he overcomes. We all know that there are so many things that can hurt, but sometimes we have to go back, sometimes we have to feel and experience before we can shy away, and even then it is not necessarily bad enough to make us avoid the world, instead we embrace it and go past the pain.

Now, honestly this whole idea is superficial, because if you are having your teeth drilled, well, it is not something you want to rush into, but if you have ever loved and lost, it hurt, and it hurt a lot. We should not run away from that, we take another chance, or chance becoming a hermit. A friend can be an amazing thing, but it sometimes hurts, but we keep going because the positives outweigh the negatives. So it goes, and sometimes, we chance the pain. After all, sometimes it has to hurt for us to understand how great the feeling is not to be hurt. Sometimes it just does. I thought about this as the metal pierced my skin tonight and tore flesh like butter. Was an interesting feeling.

So, anyway, as the sun sets on another day, don't keep touching the hot stove, it hurts. If however, you find there is something great in your life, take a chance, and even though you might get hurt, it may be worth it,

Sleep sweet, love life, and pass the aspirin...

The sun sets on another day...

If you look at the wheel of the sun crossing the sky, it is rolling all the time...

So then are we, rolling through our days of life. The only difference is with the sun and the earth and the myriad of other celestial bodies, they are for all intents, immortal, while we have to hold on to every precious moment (Not the figurine) to ensure we have a life that is what it should be. We need to hold on to every moment, and enjoy all that we can to be the best we can be each and every day. Sometimes it is hard to see the forest through the trees, or the whole elephant because of the size, but if you quantify and consider that you might only have 29,000 sunsets, just how many did you enjoy?

Personally I want to enjoy them all, I want to feel the excitement of life every day, and not get lost in the negatives. I suggest everyone look for a positive, just one, and well, like the song says, take that little light and let it shine. We tend to put those lights out too easily, and instead we should smile and rise above.

So as the sun sets on another day, I am rollin again, making tracks in the snow, and finding a way to see the world more effectively. All I request, perhaps implore, is each of you do the same, and in the process, find a little light, and let it shine.

Sleep sweet, smile brightly, and laugh all the time...

The sun sets on another day...

It is a good day, a long day, well, it is cold, and wet, and icy, but that's OK. The sunset was probably beautiful, but we could not see it as millions of tiny flakes fell on us and grew on the ground, and yes, there is a foot of snow on the ground.

For me, in life, it is all in how you look at it. We can see the snow falling and the cold and the pain it could bring, or we can get out the sleds and start pounding snow into submission and extracting fun all day. This afternoon I saw dozens of accidents. Most were small, and frustrating, with only a few larger ones that were less than pleasing. All in all, if people would just pay attention to each other, well, wrong subject.

The point is, you can decide to hate today, or love today, but it is and will be your decision. No one else has the power to decide for you, no one else can change who you are, that part is all you.

So as the sun sets on another day, take a moment. Survey the surrounding area, is it really that bad? I doubt it, I bet it is pretty awesome if you look at it a certain way. Maybe it is time to look at it, and turn the page from negativity. (maybe)

Sleep sweet, love life, and get out the sled...
