I'll be honest...

I have not always been the one that asked for peace, I have not always been the one who worked for peace, but I have always been the one who would step out and protect those around me so they could have peace. Often that was with whatever means were available and sometimes at my expense.

In spite of that peace does find a way. However quite often that way is not an easy way. Sometimes the road to peace can be a difficult path, and sometimes it can be a nearly impossible path. In the end, peace is a destination more than a journey in my opinion.

So as we look out over the sky and watch the sun set on another day, let's look for the destination of peace and realize that the path towards peace is sometimes a turbulent one. Sometimes the path to peace is less than peaceful but we can find ourselves at peace in the end. Isn't that the goal? Wouldn't it be nice to enjoy each moment peacefully and without conflict?

Enjoy life, sleep sweet, and love every moment so that all of us can find peace together and in the end bind happiness to that...

The Sun sets on another day...

No matter when the Sun is setting the colors are always there. Sometimes the colors are unreal and become covered by clouds and not so exciting. Sometimes the colors are very dim and suddenly an explosion of light and color covers us up with its maelstrom and we are overwhelmed with beauty.

This is true in life as well. Sometimes it seems as though everything is going well and suddenly we think it's not. The colors just aren't there. Sometimes we think things are going poorly and suddenly it's a fantastic day and it ends in an explosion of color and excitement.

The trick is to live every moment as though it would be the best possible moment you could have. In that we have the ability to see beyond that small slice and look at the bigger picture where happiness can exist independent of what life seems to be.

So as the Sun sets on another day take a moment and realize if the day looks bad it may turn out fantastic. And remember if the day looks fantastic it may not turn out as good but underneath there is something to be thankful for. No matter what everyday is yours to cherish.

Sleep sweet, love life, and wish upon a star every night...

The sun sets on another day...

Yesterday as my arm dangled helplessly in front of me I thought about control a lot. It is funny how so many people feel hey are in control. In control of their lives, other peoples lives and a host of items that can make a person's head spin like a runaway top. It is very rare we really have control of very much but ourselves. Controlling people is about as effective as controlling the sunset, now matter how hard you try, life goes on.

Don't fret, influence is another thing entirely and if we influence in a positive manner perhaps we will see positive results in the world. We can all move in a positive direction if we just remember to stay look at the bright side of every coin and skip the dark side, or better, eliminate it from our lives. Let go of your illusions and live your life well, enjoy each moment and we will all find people to enjoy the moment with us.

So as the sun sets on another day lets let our illusions of control go, and live our lives the best we can and have hope others come along for the ride.

Sleep sweet, love life, and wish upon a bright star, someone will be wishing on it with you...

(Oh, and I am OK the cat is out of the box)

The sun sets on another day...

Today I am not writing this post, I wrote it Thursday night, and set it to post tomorrow so it would seem like today but it was actually done yesterday. At some point today I was in the deep sleep that only anesthetic brings. Hopefully a deep peace will come over me and I will be happy and fulfilled and my arm will be repaired. Funny huh? Right now I am a literal Schrodinger's Cat, existing in a vaporous state until I post again tomorrow or have enough presence of mind to do so later tonight. Fun huh?

As the sun sets tonight, and this post is set to be at exactly sunset (No more virtual time travel talk it will give us a headache), let's be thankful. Thankful for those people who make our lives
