The sun sets on another day...

The sunset was good, then gone, then good, then gone as wind and clouds rocked the area, but the days have been so beautiful it really was not big deal, the days have been beautiful indeed.

I sit tonight looking over the last few days, amazed. I can smile, laugh, and even tear up a bit, not for bad, but for all the wonderful people in the world, and all the people I have met in the last few days, seen again in the last few days, or just enjoyed over the last few days.

Have you ever considered for just a moment the profound effect we have on each other? Just a few words can open our minds, our hearts, and much more. A few words and the world seems like a good, or better, or best place?

I thought a lot about effects this weekend. I will continue to do for some time just because of the last few days.

As I interacted with hundreds upon hundreds of people each had their own story. From the man who laughed about all he had seen, to the young wanting so badly to see more, each had a story to tell and each was a fantastic journey. I listened, I talked, I listened some more.

I was fascinated at how people see the world, and as I listened my view of the world shifted slightly, or perhaps a little more. I can only say I appreciate everyone I met, each person I spoke to, and each moment I spent with a lot of wonderful people. There could be few better days.

Do you see it? Do you see how you fit in the world? How you fit with others? Can you see how a few moments listening can be s good, or a few moments sharing can be even more?

In the end, the world is a better place when you share, or listen, or just interact. Don't believe me? just ask the people you interact with. You can make their day, or take it away. Choose to make their day!

So as the sun sets on another day, I could not easily list all of the people who were awesome today but I can say that today was good. Grab on to the moments, laugh at the ups and downs and find the way for people to mean more. You can do it.

Sleep sweet, love, and be amazed...

The sun sets on another day...

Sunset was striking, and the evening sky filled with colors and supplemented by leftover fireworks. In the end, the beauty was memorable and maybe a little more.

Obscure movies 101 (well, me in this case) say that talent does what it can. Today I was surrounded by talent of many different types. Writers were all around and as I interacted I was excited that each of them was unique in one way or another. 

This post will be shorter today but I will make up for it tomorrow as I interact with the amazing authors at the Muskegon Art Fair. 

So as the sun sets on another day, talent does what it can, and the talented people I was with today did a lot. They have made their imaginations part of something bigger. If you know a writer, let them know you appreciate them, if you are a writer, keep writing, and make the day yours, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy your imagination...

The sun sets on another day...

Sunset was crisp, and clean, and full of color as the clouds melded with the sun making a beautiful picture to enjoy. I smiled as the clouds obscured the end of the day and waited for the upcoming fireworks.

I have read a lot of posts today about the Fourth of July. Some are thankful, some are intense. Some state blatant opinion as fact, and some tether fact to opinion. In the end it is interesting to watch, but scary to consider all the opinions that are out there about the fourth, and about how we started this country.

Now I could get into this and spend a lot of time quoting sources and facts and make this a really boring post but instead I think we need to remember a few easy things.

  • A great many people put their lives on the line and lost their lives to create the USA
  • Today is a celebration of the creation of the USA
  • If you live in the USA, be thankful

I hope you have/had a safe holiday.

So as the sun sets on another day, enjoy your day, enjoy every day, and make days like today special, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and thank you for reading...

The sun sets on another day...

As I tried to rest the sunset came and went, beautiful as it could be, and an amazing spectacle in itself.

I have said many times this blog or treatise or thing is for my children. Today's statement is easy. Don't overdo it or if you do, be ready to face the consequences.

So as the sun sets on another day, we all have some type of limits, mine appear to be pretty scary, but they are still there. Find your limit, work it forward as you can, and enjoy the sunset, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and push as you can...
