The sun sets on another day...

I suppose if we use age as a guide the sun would be the wisest thing in our solar system.  It has been here since the darkness left and its light began to shine. If we used time, the sun wins because it is always there, always shining, no "sleep" "rest" or anything similar. The sun exists, and though to us the sun sets, it never sets on our planet.

For people wisdom is not age, nor time, but experience. As we experience more and more we understand more and more, not from TV, or social media, but from actual real life experience. When people experience, they set aside fear,and rather than feeling anxiety they find a way and then they just know. After all, the wise old man or woman didn't get that way by sitting in a char for all their life, they did so by challenging themselves in new and exciting ways!

I knew a friend once that seemingly was afraid of everything, and though they showed some insight, their depth of experience was minimal. They hid from life, and watched it go by, never engaging to the level they could in favor of something much less. 

At the same time I know a friend now that has "been there, done that" and though we disagree sometimes, they have wisdom that I can always respect them, even if it does not always match mine.

So as the sun sets on another day, why not grab onto life, experience everything, find your way not around a problem but through a problem, and in the process spend your time wisely. Along the way, embrace everything, enjoy all you can, and be happy every moment of every day, no mater what...

Sleep sweet, dance a lot, and laugh like you own the world...

The sun sets on another day...

In the grand scope of humanity perhaps one of the greatest things we do is sing. Sing for happy times, and for bad, for amazing, and depressing items. Our voices can give us a view to our souls, and bear those souls to us so easily. There is such passion in many songs, and in that passion we find ourselves, or sometimes lose ourselves.

To me it is interesting what motivates singers, the imagination, the feeling, the passion, and the despair that make us who we are also make for a good or even great song. I can name numerous examples, but I am sure you can as well so all I can say is you should sing, sing a song, and not worry if its not good enough, for anyone else to hear. Just sing, sing a song. (Sounds familiar)

Anyway, as the sun sets on another day, and the colors bath us in the miracle of ever changing colors, take a moment and sing with the sunset, and realize how great it is to be alive.

Sleep sweet, love life, and have fun, each and every day...

The sun sets on another day...

They say that on a clear day you can see forever. It is funny if you think about it, a  sentence looking for a unit of distance gets a unit of time. Tonight though, as I looked out upon the sunset, I really could see for forever, and maybe beyond.

So as the sun sets on another day, take a breath, enjoy the moment, and let's see how far forever is and make it a beautiful trip.

Sleep sweet, love life, and forever is a long time, but you can get there if you believe...

The sun sets on another day...

Albert Einstein once said "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough." I think he was right but can take it a step further: "If you don't explain it simply, maybe you need to see it from the other side."

Why is it so difficult to communicate? Perhaps we just aren't saying it simply enough, and maybe we don't understand well enough or maybe we take things too far and don't realize who we are talking to at the time. We need to make an effort to understand all aspects of a situation before we try to explain it, no matter how simple it may be. By the same token we need to understand who we are talking to, so they can understand and learn from us, or vice versa.

So as the sun sets on another day, let's try to communicate more and more simply. Speak to the lowest common denominator, take the moment to make life better by speaking what you know but consider the audience, and in the end, just try to make people understand, no matter what. (and make them happy too)

Sleep sweet, and have a simple night...
