The sun sets on another day...

Somewhere high above the raging winds and thickened clouds sunset was happening, but I could not see it between the trees reaching to touch the ground and the howling of the approaching storm. I knew it was there and enjoyed the moments, but could not see it with my eyes.

As I write each night I usually look up my topic and come up with a few things that are close, read them, and sometimes add them to the current post. It is funny, today as I did so I looked up "letting go". I came up with a lot then looked, noticed I needed to refine it, and as I refined came down to 2 items. 2 very different items here and here.

Anyway. As I worked on an AI program tonight I was lost in thought about the world. There is so much going on right now. I needed to clear my mind, so I smiled and started trying to let it go. Not letting go gives us all sorts of problems, from anxiety to heart disease and I am a firm believer that letting go is necessary, but I am not always as successful as I would like to be. After all, there are things we need to hold on to and like to hold on to, but we shouldn't.

There I sat thinking about letting go of things I was thinking about. Ever done that? It makes it harder and harder to let go of it, but I tried, and then I stopped. Went outside for a moment and listened to the wind. The trees were straining, and there was a creak to the wood as it bent but did not break. The grass rustled and there were rumblings of thunder in the distance. You know what it helped. 

How do you let go of stress and the daily rigors of life? Is it something simple, or complex? How can we all get better about the art of letting go and just move on?

For me, it will be to get back to basics, and of course find something to focus on will always win out, and the storm was perfect last night.

So as the sun sets on another day, let go. Enjoy your moments, don't focus on the past but instead embrace today, embrace now, and love every moment you can, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, have fun, and make each day amazing...

Sunset was, well, wow. It held my attention with colors and amazing moments, then faded away to the cyclic grays of twilight.

Step step step, another moment moves forward. Isn't it fun. We step through the moments and step through life so easily, but as we do we make a path. Is it a path for others to brave, or a path we can only ford alone. If you read 29000 sunsets from time to time and any of the 1850 or so posts I have put here you will know that I occasionally talk about key decisions. It seems not so long ago that I stood on the top of a hill and was confronted with three paths. One was easy but it would not fulfill me long term, one was hard and had no definitive outcome, and one was even harder but could have led to severe happiness. I chose and in the end it was a good choice that did not work out well. Why will escape me for a time, but I made a choice.

Sometimes we make choices and sometimes as we step through life the choices are made for us. Step step step, all we can do is keep moving forward and not let the choices we made slow us down any more than the choices made for us. Find the path that works each day, and keep stepping through it. those paths that are not as good? Set them aside, and in the end you might just find a happy place. My opinion. 

So as the sun sets on another day, what a great day, and a day for fun and excitement! Enjoy your days and make good decisions each and every day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and have some salmon...

I like cool words. There are lots of fun words in this rather strange language we speak, lots that mean a lot, and some that mean very little. Lets try a few:

 I lay supine in idyllic bliss surrounded by my solitude and the majestic sequoias. As I lay there I watched the aurora as euphoria washed over me. Breathes in the pleasant petrichor and smiled as I saw someone special and realized that the day would be magnificent.

Well, at least it sounds good.

Enjoy words, read, laugh, learn, and make every day and adventure.

So as the sun sets another day, sticks and stones can break my bones, aimed with angry art, words can sting like anything, but silence breaks the heart. Remember.

Sleep sweet, love life, and love some more...

Ever take a walk and just get overwhelmed by the beauty of it all. No it wasn't sunset, just a walk, and I tell you, it was pretty.

It is so easy to find beauty if you look for it, it is everywhere you know. I was going to set up a site once called hidden beauty, and just did not have the time, but I have taken so many pictures where a slice of the picture is amazing, but the entire picture does not lend itself to that striking awesomeness. 

A leaf in the middle of a trash strewn area. A flower next to a highway. Leaves and ivy over a broken house. There are so many options, and so many of them just make you go "wow". All you have to do is look for them, and remember.

Years ago I was in downtown Louisville KY not expecting much and found a park that had a stream in it. A small peace of heaven followed, and I could not have wished for better. The beauty would have been lost if I had not taken a chance, and looked.

So as the sun sets on another day, well, its there if you look. Open your eyes, find the beauty, and as you do remember you are a part of it. Enjoy the moments, enjoy it all, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live on...
