The sun sets on another day...

As the sun set colors cascaded across the clouds and were quenched by the grey that surrounds them. Although brief, the sun shone so brightly for a moment it was practically magical.

In life we are often given a similar opportunity. We are given the chance to be magical and amazing, and to show others how wonderful life can be. We can do so by simple acts of kindness, helping others, or just leading by example when possible to show someone a happy way. We can all shine so well and so easily, we just have to try. When we are helping others it is then that we become practically magical as well, and truly make a difference.

So as the sun sets on another day, take a moment and shine, and in the process show the world what you have to offer, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and make it yours everyday...

The sun sets on another day...

As the snow rolls in there is not much of a sunset. If you have a good one please send it in! You can send all sunsets to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Anyway, I was considering the song today, "Spinning Wheels" (Yes, it is an old song). In the song we learn that what goes up, must come down, and that spinning wheels have got to go round. I know this seems basic, but sometimes we forget the essence of what happens in life. The sun rises, the sun sets, the day may be good, but the next not so good. A happy person will sometimes be sad, and so forth. The trick is to realize that as you go down, you will come up as well and in the process understand the nature of things.

I posted an article about millennials and how they are not adapting s well as possible and at the core of the article is that they do not seem to understand the nature of things. You cannot be perfect all of the time, be the best every moment, but you can try. Thats the best thing to do, try and in the process open doors and succed, because without trying, there can neve rbe success.

So as the sun sets on another day, consider the order of things and how they really are, and in the process, consider that you can try, and in doing so, perhaps succeed at almost anything. (Just don't jump out of a plane without a parachute)

Sleep sweet, smile brightly and enjoy the night...

The sun sets on another day...

As I watched the sunset tonight, unable to take a picture as well as I liked, I was lost in the awe of the moment as it had been defined, in that moment I thought of the poem High Flight and a poem I wrote oh so many years ago.

As the wind buffeted I consider that I wandered lonely as a cloud above, watching the moments pass, feeling the wind, and feeling each breath that passed between, Somewhere in the depth of it all, I found peace in the moment, and silence in the chaos. 

At any rate, it was a great day, and each of us should have one!

So as the sun sets on another day, find your moment, and find the feelings inside, feel them , live them, then let them lead you to more good moments so you too can soar "where never lark or even eagle flew"

Sleep sweet, live for this moment and beyond, and love life every day...

The sun sets on another day...

Four more days remain in the year. This has been a year of many changes, many good times, some bad, but mostly it has been a series of wonderful sunsets. Four more days until we are given a new year, with new promises, and new hope, and four more days until I will unload the 2016 dark posts. 

I was looking through them and the posts were not so dark as I thought, and some insightful, but they are not what I would normally put up, even though they are as much a truth or opinion as any other post.

So as the sun sets on another day, I will sit and continue writing this big post referencing a lot of little posts, and be ready for the new year, clean and fresh, and full of hope for a better day, and an amazing sunset as you should be as well.

Sleep sweet, love life, and count to 4...
