The sun sets on another day...and there is beauty hidden here...

As I drive I am often amazed at the number of things I see briefly, and then realize they are beautiful in a sea of less than beautiful. There are so many places where beauty exists that it is not noticed. As we drive, walk, fly or just pay attention we can often see a sight that many others would miss. Often when I am in the car with people I ask "Did you see that" only to find they are lost in other things, phones, or mild daydreams and not paying attention to the world.

In life, we should pay attention to everything always. I know it is easy to disagree, but I feel strongly that there is beauty to be seen, not just in the things we see, but the people as well. Last night I met a host of really amazing people who were trying to make a difference, their imagination unfolded in front of me as I talked to them and they were truly beautiful. At the same time I was visited by many people and I found quickly that some friends and family truly believe in who and what I am, as much as I believe in them. 

So as the sun sets on another day, pay attention, and look for the beauty in everyone and everything, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and be happy with it everyday...


(Oh and the hidden beauty, is at the top of the picture, blown up here)

The sun sets on another day...

Ever notice how sometimes when the sun sets your shadow gets longer and longer until finally all that is left is shadow? As the sun sets, that shadow grows as the light fades from the sky, and in the end, you cannot easily see where your shadow ends and the darkness begins. Most people don't as usually their shadow is behind them.

In life there are lots of people who shine great light upon us all, and cast shadows as we walk through. Those people can show us the light in ourselves and we need to remember to leave the shadow behind us, and always take the high road. We should all focus on the light in our life, and enjoy the moments and the positives we have each and every day, no matter what.

So as the sun sets on another day, set the shadow aside, and if you can, be a light that shines on us all, and gives us hope, maybe, just maybe, we won't have to worry about nightfall, and instead the light of our happiness will shine on

Sleep sweet, love life, and live it, each and every day...

The sun sets on another day...

Sometimes as the sun sets you can feel the emotion. Sometimes it is nearly overwhelming. Caught in a moment you can almost feel the feelings swirling around like marshmallows it sticks to you but feels good at the same time. (Well, maybe not, but it is a try)

People are sometimes equally capable of making emotions flow as powerfully. Today as I watched a powerful presentation about a youth center I considered how so many people do not get a chance in life to see beyond themselves and would do near anything to break free. It is in this that we as a people need to help each other up, and in the process lift ourselves up further.

So as the sun sets on another day, remember you are not the center of the universe (This may be a tough one), but you are the center of your universe, and if you have the privilege to help someone, do it, and that privilege will help you see a new tomorrow, perhaps to the moon and back, and the stars beyond.

Sleep sweet, love, and live, simple words to live by each and every day.

The sun sets on another day...

 It starts in the morning, first a wave of light, slowly rising, a spark that becomes a fire, and a fire that becomes a flame. The sky ignites with light, far more intense than can be believed until all that exists is revealed by its illumination. It folds us, envelopes us with warmth and caresses us with power and humility. The day passes and we are safe in the light. As time wanes, slowly the light fades until we see the colors attack the skies, fighting for every moment, holding on with every passing second, trying, yearning to be alive still, and not to fade.

Perhaps this is true for each day, but perhaps it too is true for us, a spark can start it all, and the passion of a flame follows, no matter what.

So as the sun sets on another day, find the passion of your light, and never let that flame fade. Hold on, and keep the time until the end, and be a keeper of passion, for all time.

Sleep sweet, love life, and believe in the passion each and every day...
