The sun sets on another day...

I was thinking a lot today about how we approach life. How we approach each other, and how we all fit together. As the sun set in the western sky it was a spectacular show, but today I thought about lighthouses as much.

You would think it would be common sense to be a light for others if you can do so. You would think it would make serious sense for us all to lift each other up all the time. Well, it does. I could rant and rave about all the people who say one thing and do another. I could slide serious slaps to those who promise and then fade away, but I won't. Instead let's focus on those people who are there no matter what. Those people that say they will be there, and then like magic they are there. Those are the lighthouses we should focus on in our life. We should be looking for the lights and not the darkness. We should be looking for truth, not searching out the lies. We should be mindful of love, and not embrace hate.

Take a moment, laugh a minute, then be the light for someone else. It doesn't take much. Tell a joke, laugh with someone, listen, smile, listen some more, then just be there. You don't have to be a star to be a light, even a firefly can light a path, and guess what, if we all shine little lights it will get brighter. It is easy to get pulled into all the sidelines and silliness that abounds right now. How about we start by looking at a flower, reading a good book, or telling a fun story. Let's set aside the hate, and be something more.

So as the sun sets on another day, some people make it easy to pick on them, but when you do, you are just as much a negative as they. Why not look for the positives and set aside the negatives completely. Why not make the world a place where Superman's truth, justice, and the american way are more than just words. Be a positive light in the world, you know what, it will mean something, if only to you. Thanks for being you and I hope you had a good day today, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, live hard, and make a great path...

The sun sets on another day...

As it sets I am overcome. Emotions run rampant and all I can share is the words from a song that means a lot. No, it is not the words that will carry you, but the tune that will rend your soul if you understand what it means.

Day is done, gone the sun,
 From the lake, from the hills, from the sky;
 All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.

Fading light, dims the sight,
 And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright.
 From afar, drawing nigh, falls the night.

Thanks and praise, for our days,
 'Neath the sun, 'neath the stars, neath the sky;
 As we go, this we know, God is nigh.

Sun has set, shadows come,
 Time has fled, Scouts must go to their beds
 Always true to the promise that they made.

While the light fades from sight,
 And the stars gleaming rays softly send,
 To thy hands we our souls, Lord, commend.

So as the sun sets on another day, I know I know, not a normal post, but sometimes you have to feel, and I feel very deeply. I hope your day was the best day ever, and if not, lets make it the best day ever. After all, as the sun sets in the western sky, we can appreciate the beauty, the power, and the purity of the sunset, and in that find a little truth and happiness to guide our day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love with all your heart, and keep your heart open to love...

The sun sets on another day...

Another wonderfully colorful sunset, another massive group of people watching it slowly set in the western sky. Dramatic, impressive, amazing, stunning, awe inspiring, these are all ways to describe the day. In the end, they are words, and the reality is greater.

I have always been fascinated with the power of words. I have been equally as fascinated with the immense power of living and living in the moment. In the end, it is an art to live and an art to relay your life to others. My suggestion of the day, live life like there is no tomorrow, and if you can, tell people about your life.

So as the sun sets on another day, spend your days living, loving and laughing, and let people know if you can. In the end, life is an amazing journey, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and keep on living...

The sun sets on another day...

Sunset was again wonderful fantastic and amazing and I am always appreciative of all of the people who show up to wherever the sunset Falls.

Where I live the beaches stretch for miles without end. It is a rare day not to have many people at the beach watching the sunset right now. In the winter there are just a few but in the summer and spring and fall people are packed in and parking places are hard to find. I rotate from place to place and still it is the same. People are there watching and enjoying the moment.

It is something simple to watch the sunset. Perhaps in that foundation of simplicity we can all find a way to come together. In this world that is so divided right now we also see people watching sunsets playing with puppies enjoying their kittens and having an amazing fun life. Together but the same. Why not try to focus on the good and make everything a positive experience. Why not focus on all our similarities and skip the differences. Ask yourself why, and consider well how wonderful life would be if we just had that link.

So as the sun sets on another day we do have common ground. Strip away all the differentiators and you will find that they are the smallest part of our existence. Strip away the silliness that we get caught up in and we are all the same more than different. Let's spend a little time enjoying sunsets and while you're at it play with a puppy and a kitten too. It'll make your life a lot of fun. Try to enjoy your days each day no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy it with me...
