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...

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
I missed the part where the sun sets and does not come up, the world is horrible, and people are always just plain bad. Honestly, the number of people in the world that worry about "stuff" is staggering. Worse, the number of people who try to bring down those of us that are looking for positives and that inner power that they have a hard time feeling is staggering as well (Good word staggering). Those people try to hide the sun, make the world horrible, and try to make people feel bad or just be bad.
There is hope, and it is in every one of us. No, it does not involve you wearing a billboard and telling people your way is the right way, nor does it involve preaching from a pulpit and making people see your point even if you have to hammer it into them, it doesn't even require wearing a tutu across town. (Would look bad with my legs anyway). Instead it is very straight forward, maybe even easy: Show people you can be happy no matter what, and if you can, try to spread it.
