The sun sets on another day...

I walked a little today and looked over areas I had not seen. It is amazing what you can find when you look, and more amazing what you overlooked when you were not looking. I find every day I see and experience something new. Every day I try to see, but sometimes there is just too much.

I was winding my grandfather clock today and mused about the similarities in life. Ever think that sometimes we don't reset soon enough. The clock pendulum swings until the weight runs out, and it is up to you to wind it or the pendulum will stop. There are actually several pendulums, and each is responsible for its own part of the clock. Perhaps if we thought of things to consider like pendulums we would understand. You call people and you keep things going, you do things, even little things and you keep going. Some you have to wind often, some last a long long time.

Hmm, it is an interesting thought. Consider it a little, and perhaps think of how you are winding things now.

So as the sun sets on another day, I am glad I would my clock, and glad I figured out why the site didn't auto post. Next time I am busy I will test it again! I hope you have a terrific night, and enjoy every moment, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and wind your clock...

The sun sets on another day...

This will be a short post today. It was a good day at Silver Creek. There were a lot of great people who read books. Some think it is rare, but today I believe people may be reading more!

I hope today was good for you. I hope you did things that made you happy, made you smile and laugh, and let you see how precious life is each and every day. 

Thanks for keeping up, and thanks for being you always. You are the reason your world is, and don't forget it.

So as the sun sets on another day, find ways to make the world happy, and be that person who understand that life is about what you put into it, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and thanks...

The sun sets on another day...

I watched the sunset tonight and marveled at the fluid nature of the world. It was stunning, and I was in awe for a moment. As I watched I saw people milling around, some watched the sunset, some paid it no heed, lost in their own moments, finding their way.

I believe people have lots of reasons for being who they are as, well, people. Some are good, some are bad, some are good and bad, some are bad and good, and so forth. Personally, I know I am a spread of a lot of things.I have been good, and I have been bad, and I am probably normally somewhere in between. Today I thought a great deal about all the good and bad I have done, and how each has affected my life. In the end I remembered it was Friday the 13th, and laughed a little at all the bad in the villains for Friday the 13th, and thought I would come up with 13 reasons to be bad today. (Umm, this is supposed to be funny, so laugh with me)

  1. You get to wear cool stuff. Hockey masks and knife gloves are just the start.
  2. You might get to have the coolest lines. Villains always get to say the cool speeches. (Except Jason, he is a quiet kinda guy)
  3. You usually get the girl. Well, usually, unless is is Jamie Lee Curtis, she always gets away.
  4. You get more lives. I mean, how many sequels can you have?
  5. If you are really bad, people like you more. Who will forget the villains made famous by John Lithgow, Ralph Fiennes, or Alan Rickman. (Or the many they played, not seen the movie Blowout? You should!)
  6. Laundry is easy, you either have it done for you, or you skip it completely.
  7. You get to think up cool ideas for ending your enemies. If you are Jigsaw or Phibes, you are the coolest!
  8. Money is never an object. (Or you don't need it at all) Sorry Gru, you just weren't bad enough)
  9. People remember you more than the good guys! (Yeah, you know its true, well, most of the time)
  10. If you are lucky, you get to change into cool stuff. Dragons and Orgres and Old Lady's oh my!
  11. People trust you, even when they shouldn't. Don't take that apple.
  12. You are remembered in peoples dreams, or you live in them.
  13. Whether in truth or memory, you almost get to live forever. Eeek

So on this Friday the 13th that happens oh so rarely with a full moon, watch a few scary movies, have a lot of fun, and make the world a better place, and as the sun sets on this day, remember, the dark isn't bad at all, but what is in it, well....

Sleep sweet, fight for life, and have a good night...

The sun sets on another day...

I'm sitting here watching storm clouds roll in and out waiting for a moment when they all clear. Soon it will be a fantastic day. Soon it will be another day to be remembered.

I write a lot about sunsets. Sunsets can divide the day and show us all how beautiful life can be. Well, sunrises do this as well. Many years ago I toyed with the idea of creating 29000sunrises as well as 29000sunsets. I thought someone would be able to welcome the day and someone could also say goodbye to it in the evening. The idea was to try to inspire at both sunrise and sunset. 

Honestly there is and was not enough time in the day.

I'm getting to a point. The idea behind 29000 sunsets was that this day, today, is a gift. We should not be spending our time overdoing it unless we are over doing on our passions, the people around us, and those things that we love.

The question I ask many is If today was your 28999 sunset what would you do different, if anything? I follows if it is not your 28999 sunset why aren't you doing that thing that you would do on your last day? I know it probably sounds morbid but today could be anyone's last day and the greatest gift of all in life is to live it. 

So back to my point. If I were to do it alone, doing 29000sunrises and 29000sunsets  would be a hefty job. I would rather live life today and share my passions with only a portion of that life. Yes I love to share. Yes I love to put out short little sentences or talk to people about those things that incite and Inspire them. At the same time I like to be inspired. I like to incite myself to enjoy my time. I leave this for my children and anyone reading, find your passion, and live your passion, but know when to say when. Don't get so lost in taking a picture that you forget to enjoy the scene. 

So as the sun rises on another day and the sun will eventually set on this selfsame day I wish to you that ability to press the envelope, to love life, and to squeeze out every moment that you can, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and wow what a day...
