Sunsets are always a bit easy, as they happen as long as the world rolls around. Since we all would not be reading this if the world stopped it is safe to assume that given is true. On the stormiest day there is still a sunset, you just have to move above the clouds to see it and take a moment to see the beauty in the day. So many times people focus on the negative not realizing that if they just raise a bit they will see the sunset they were looking for in their day. After all, we are not measured by the easy in life, we can be measured only by how we handle the difficult and how we rise above.

Sunset

  • The day ends soon and I do not cry
  • for as I leave and breath and sigh
  • I know the promise of new days
  • will soon be coming now my way
  • and if i should die before I wake
  • I know this day I did partake
  • of life and love and all that's true
  • and hoped on high for life anew

Storms Storms blow through our lives each and every day. As the wind blows and devastates us we must remember that even though the sun may set on a day, it will one day rise on a new day, with a promise that even the worst storms will end. I have weathered many a storm only to find that in the end, the storm was not so bad as the experience of riding the highs and lows of life, and going where the waves may take me or where I could power myself through to a new beginning..

You know, as the sunset falls on another day I consider the depth of what passion is to me. By definition passion is "strong and barely controllable emotion" however most people think passion can be controlled. In my opinion passion for your job, life, or loved one, is the most precious thing in the world, and without it we struggle to hold on each and every day. When you walk into a room and are passionate about something the room will light up. If passion is for a person, why can't it be the overwhelming kind we all want, and not the mundane mediocrity many people seem to accept?

"You mean, how long will I live? That no one can tell" - Klatue

I was watching a particularly awesome sunset over Lake Michigan when i considered the name of a series of stories, and a book of hope. I consider a lot of books and stories as my mind is literally flooded with them, but this one meant a little something more. As the sun waned I realized most of us rarely see 79, and it seemed like a good age, hence the 29,000 number, based on just shy of 80 years.

So I push, to enjoy every one...
