The sun sets on another year...

No, not a day, but in this case a year has passed and we move from one year to another as easily as we moved from one day to another. Today let's all take a moment to consider the year, the positives and negatives we have experienced. The changes we have undergone. The people we have lost, and those we have found. Take a moment and consider the fantastic moments of 2015, and as you do so, set aside those defeats you had, and turn them into lessons of life you can use to be a better person. Mostly, define who you are in life.

Close your eyes this eve as we pass into 2016 and make a promise to yourself to be a better person, to live for truth, to live for love, to invest the time necessary to make them a reality, and to be the lady or gentleman you should be  and make the world a better place. As you listen and hear this song consider the words:

Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old lang syne?
 
CHORUS:
 
For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
And surely you’ll buy your pint cup!
and surely I’ll buy mine!
And we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
CHORUS
 
We two have run about the slopes,
and picked the daisies fine;
But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,
since auld lang syne.
 
CHORUS
 
We two have paddled in the stream,
from morning sun till dine†;
But seas between us broad have roared
since auld lang syne.
 
CHORUS
 
And there’s a hand my trusty friend!
And give me a hand o’ thine!
And we’ll take a right good-will draught,
for auld lang syne.
 
CHORUS
 
Have a great night and a happy new year, live life fully, Believe in yourself, don't sweat the petty things, nor pet the sweaty things, Hold on to love and abolish negativity. Tomorrow is another day...er year!

the sun sets on another day...

It is amazing to see the flurry of iridescent colors that make up a sunset. As the sun passes into the horizon, the color is spread through the skies and lights us all with a different amazing view each day. Similar, as each day passes, the exact location of sunset shifts ever so slightly as well, moving the location enough that by that view as well, each sunset is different. Even more, unless we put an X on the ground, we too are different each day, and we find that we too are a factor in making things different.

So as we look upon today's glorious sunset, remember tomorrows will be fresh and new for all to see, and all to enjoy.

No deep meanings today, just enjoy the sunset and each other...

The sun sets on another day....

Each day of our life is a series of decisions that create a series of decisions, that create a permutation of our decisions and the decisions of others to make a complete picture of a life. some are easy and happen without intervention, we add to the complexity as often we make decisions that directly influence the outcome, even though the outcome is not totally within our control. If you think about any one decision in a day it can give you a headache. If you consider how a large decision can positively or negatively affect your life, and consider all the permutations of such, you may be headed to Bellevue. 

Each sunset we experience, whether we see it or whether it is above the clouds is a series of random points that include water vapor, pollution, angle of incidence and a host of other factors that create a different sunset each day. This makes each sunset as complex as a life, full of possibilities, and always unique.

By definition a labyrinth is "something extremely complex or tortuous in structure, arrangement, or character", so by chasing sunsets are we part of an infinitely complex labyrinth in an infinitely complex labyrinth being who we are in this world?

I for one feel that if we think about the infinitely complex sunset we are viewing, we will loose the beauty of it, just as if we consider how complex our lives are, we lose the beauty of them and in the end, shouldn't we just sit back, hold someones hand, and enjoy the moment, and if we chase the sunset to the end of time, be like Don Quixote, and "be willing to march into hell for a heavenly cause". If we are not willing to put our lives out there for our Dulcinea, can we truly say we have lived?

More questions than answers, and I have opinions. So should you all.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live every day like it is your last...
