The sun sets on another day...

As I stated yesterday, I was going through a bunch of stuff and found a small composition book. I thought I would share some of the items I wrote in it so long ago.

 

Essense

Silence of a thousand words Spoken from you to me

I tremble with excitement as you know just what I mean

 

Chasmic feelings cross the distance from me to you

Now you know for sure that my true love is true

 

seeing is believing or so they sometimes say

hearing is not dreaming nor does it keep the truth away

 

Feeling is much better but now from me to you

knowing is the best thing and knowing I love you

I have always believed in the depth of love, and sometimes I wonder the reality of it all. There are times you see it as real, and times that it is less than positive as it wanes or worse. It is an interesting thought to say the least. In my opinion real love is always there and never fades. Real love is being away from a long time and walking into a room with someone and still feeling beyond the depth of it all. My opinion, I could be wrong.

So as the sunn sets on another day, the little composition book is fun, I will have to post another tomorrow, just to share and have a little fun. Enjoy your night, and love life, just because.

Sleep sweet, feel deeply, and live every day as though there is no tomorrow...

The sun sets on another day...

I am going through a bunch of boxes and throwing away things that have been in boxes for a long time. Well, mostly throwing away papers and things that meant a lot once, but now mean little or things that meant nothing and still mean little. As I was going through papers I found a mini composition book.I knew it right away and opened it to a few writings I had played with so I thought I would share.

Sunset

The trees reach hungrily for the descending crimson orb creeping ever so slowly from the sky

Their once green leaves now dark with the shadows of the night to come

colors play across the now magenta horizon as once again dusk passes us to the embrace of the dark night

Peace transforms the night and silence is upon us as only twilight can deliver

---AAS 2001

So as the sun sets on another day, I guess I have liked sunset for a long time. Well, my whole life. After all, if you only have 29000 why not enjoy every one.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live your passion...

Sunset, wow. Fantastic is all I could say, and it was so, but the moonset last night was equally as amazing.

Funny huh? Considering a  moonset on a site called 29000sunsets. I am the guy to walk that tightrope.

We all seem to walk a tightrope sometimes, between what we should do, what we need to do, what we must do, and a few other paths. I find it funny that we all have lots of paths out there, but we don't seem to always choose which path is the right path.

I have talked often about being at the top of a hill, looking down on the paths before me, choosing one only to have it changed. The point is, I chose, but it did not end up being a viable path. We need to do the same daily and at least choose. Be that person that makes the decision, and even if the decision is wrong, we are off the tightrope and on to the next adventure. In it all remember that not making a decision is a decision within itself.

So as the sun sets on another day, maybe it is time to get off the tightrope and be on the ball. (Funny huh) Making decisions and moving life forward, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, wake up, and make a choice...

The sun sets on another day...

It is there, in the edge of the sunset. It is on the edge of a kiss, it is on the moment of understanding, the yearning to understand. It is there on the limits to overcome and in the song we sing without pause. It is there in the depths of who we are, and in the depths of who we want to be. It is not just something you feel, it is something that is part of your very being. It drives you each day, and inspires, antagonizes, scares, enthralls, envelopes, excites, terrifies, pushes, and pulls everyone around you.

Why a paradox?

I think you can answer that from the words I used. People with excessive passion can excite and scare in the same moment. Some want to be a part, others do not understand and are overwhelmed by the very idea of passion.I talk about passion a lot, perhaps too much, but it means a lot to me, perhaps too much.

What is passion? By definition it is "strong and barely controllable emotion" but I feel it is deeper than that. A person of passion does not just do something they are passionate about, they overdo it. They live to the edge of the moment and maybe a little more. For me, if I am passionate about something I will drive it hard and know it inside and out. With people, passion can be more than intense and if both people are passionate it is something to behold. It is also very rare. Passionate people are often with people who love the passion, but cannot give their own.

Still, all a paradox and I have not done enough to explain it, I am not sure I ever could. After all, passion is also personal. My passion for reading is over the top, but many people think I just have too many books. My passion for learning is the same, but some people think I am overconfident and arrogant. My passion for understanding people is high, but it makes me too friendly. My passion for weapons make me violent, my passion for photography nerdy, my passion for movies, geeky and so it goes. I guess the paradox to remember if for each passion we have, someone has a negative feeling about it, but in definition, perhaps that is just another face of passion.

So as the sun sets on another day, here I am, passionate about writing, so I write. I write a lot and love to write. I hope you enjoy it, and I hope you feel the passion I do if only for a moment, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love deeply, and fill the world with passion...
