The sun sets on another day...

As I watched the sunset the waves pounded the rocky shore and sprayed mist high into the sky. I was amazed at the power and the tenacity of the waves, and smiled as the sun crept to the far side of the sky.

I was happy today as I passed 40,000 words in Silent Sister. I am creaming Nanowrimo now but also lost with my characters in the edge of the story, looking at them as real in the back of my mind and thinking about what they would do in their situations.

I have found that characters are like the waves in the ocean as I write. Strong and powerful and pushing out to the pages I am building. I can honestly say I have written an evil person in my newest book, I can also honestly say that it will be good seeing face justice. As I continue to write I can be nothing but amazed as the words dance in front of me, and as each of the characters grow and take on a life of their own. 

So as the sun sets on another day, I believe that the waves tell a story of their own, and I was glad to listen to their story. Now I have a story to tell, so I am off to write. Have an amazing eve, and love every moment.

Sleep sweet, love so deeply everyone knows, and remember to love no matter what...

The sun sets on another day...

Sunset was beautiful and Powerful I'm truly beyond belief. I watched in awe has the sun set in the Western sky and was overwhelmed by the crimson shards of light but covered the horizon.

Today as I was taking a long walk I passed the woman running in the very very hot weather. She was well kempt and it was apparent she was just starting her run with a power that only a few people perhaps understand. I may not have noticed her except she ran into the frame of my picture as I was taking one of the area . As I walked I got hot quickly and began sweating and completed my circle drenched and returned to get a cart and go to the beach I am visiting. I took another route and thought nothing about this woman.

Fast forward 45 minutes as I am reaching the beach from the top of a hill here was the same woman running towards me oblivious to my very existence but covered in sweat panting and still pushing forward. Normally I would say that this is unimportant but on this day it meant something to me as I watched this woman I realized that every one of us set a goal and decide if we  make it. Perhaps I didn't realize it as much as remember it but I needed to see this again. I said nothing and she would not have noticed me anyway because she was pressing forward to her goal and was going to make it.

Maybe we all just need to press forward towards our goals and not worry about the rest of the world. Sure there are goals that include the rest of the world or depend on the rest of the world but our part is important to us and we need to make it happen. As this woman did so should we all and even if we end up drenched in our own sweat or beaten to the end of it all we can make it. We can make it because our will is indomitable. We can make it because it is who we are.

So as the sun sets on another day did you set a goal? Are you pushing that envelope and making things happen? I know you can as can I as can we all no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and keep pushing...

The sun sets on another day...

The sunset was striking today. Lost in the clouds, then out, then in, and then in full brilliance. There I sat in a light mist, watching and taking pictures. In front of me a sunset, behind a rainbow. So much to choose from. So many things to do.

You know, often I want just a little more. There are so many things you can look at and wonder, if only a little more. This week it has been writing. I just want a little more time. Another few words. A few more sentences. I can remember so much that felt the same. A little more time in my car. (Silly huh) A few more minutes with my son or daughter. A little bit more time with a friend. Another kiss when the last one was just not enough. Life, in general. A little more of the sunset.

As you ask yourself what you would like a little more of think about the things you want and figure out why not? Don't limit yourself at all, but instead reach out, press the envelope, and find the more you want, and need.

So as the sun sets on another day, perhaps i had enough of tonight's sunset, perhaps the colors were enough, the feelings that washed over me were plenty, but in truth, it would have been nice to have a little more. Maybe even more than that. So I will hold on to this last moment and make it mine, and feel it forever, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and feel it forever...

The sun sets on another day...

I watched the sun set today full of anxious energy as I have been writing a lot today and yesterday and likely the week.

silent Sister has fun characters, lots of action, and a different story line. I am enjoying writing and looking forward to this book!

So as the sun sets on another day, enjoy your night, while I write, in low light, it is quite a sight.

Sleep sweet, love often, and read a book!
