The sun sets on another day…
It's the end of the month and at the end of a month of writer workshops and writer readings and a lot of just plain fun. After all hanging out with a bunch of people with unlimited imaginations is always fun.
As the day came to an end we all got together one last time. This time was filled with lots of playful banter and more than a little pure imagination.
I'm a huge fan of imagination. For a great part of my life I lived there. When the world around you is closing in all the time sometimes the only place we have is our imagination. This made life difficult sometimes, not because it was any harder but because imagination can sometimes give a false sense of security. Still I enjoy the opinions of other writers and enjoy seeing inside their hearts and souls.
This is an end of the line but it is also the beginning. It is the beginning of friendships and understanding, of new readers and old readers reading again, of incredible highs and scary lows, all in the depths of pages and ink.
I hope some of the readers out there joined me and I hope some of you had fun every day, I know I did.
So as the sun sets on another day, the world is a fantastic place mostly because people with imagination helped make it that way. support writers and support people who support writing and reading because that is the doorway to a better future.
Sleep sweet, love life, and keep reading…
The sun sets on another day…
Sunset was once again amazing and the day was a very good day in so many ways. It is often the little things that define what is good and what is bad. for me there is no bad just a series of better days and sometimes less better ones.
As I considered the sun and basking in its glow I was surprised at how happy I could be. There are many things that have kept me from being super happy but few that keep me from being amazingly happy. This is not because I'm special in any way, or at least I don't think so, but instead it is clearly because I make a conscious choice every day define some positive in the day. I will admit that some days this can be difficult and often it leads me to concede far more than I should in life. Still as I sit on this magnificent Saturday I have to say the day was pretty good.
A big to the why was simply because during this fun time of spring or end of first winter the thaw has been rather slow. This has eliminated flooding it made my life a lot easier. I'm good with that. it also has started getting sunnier again. I am good with that too. I'm actually pretty good with any day that shows me positives and keeps moving forward. Really what more can you ask for?
How about you? can you find your way to a fantastic day even when others don't necessarily see it? can you see the good when others simply see the bad? it's there if you only look.
So as the sun sets on another day, it's a good day and I'm hopeful that you're enjoying it too. I will keep on going no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and happy day…
The sun sets on another day…
Sunset was cloudy today, but I knew it would rebound and eventually be beautiful. Towards the end I saw it beat me to it and it truly was an amazing sight.
The human spirit is far more resilient than we give it credit for. Somewhere inside we can easily overcome practically anything. This makes me smile. Truly the only limitation we have are the limitations we put upon our self. I have seen the impossible become possible and I have seen people who were challenged overcome more than anyone thought they could.
Still, as the number of days before us becomes less than the number of days behind us we consider the power of our spirit more and more. It is in that indomitable will to be more that we have the opportunity of changing time itself. all I can suggest is that you take a moment and consider just how strong your spirit is and if it is suffering take a moment with me and let's get it to a positive place.
We make the choice every day to be the version of us that we want to be. in spite of all that so many believe there is nothing that defeats us more than ourselves. Believe in yourself as much as I believe in you and let's make this day spectacular.
so as the sun sets on another day if you defeat yourself the day is already done. If you start with an idea of success you will succeed. It really is that easy. You may stumble but the idea of success cannot be defeated. Make that idea yours, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and be amazing…

Sunset was once again amazing and filled with spectacular colors that lit up the sky. the clouds dotted the horizon and changed from puffy white to black as the sunset lit them from behind.
I'm always amazed by how short and long time is perceived. I read a story by Stephen King that I have spoke about several times. in it a family member explains time to a child who has been cheated at hide and seek. You would think the story was very thinly veiled but it was actually quite complex has the family member explained life as a whole. As I read this story I was fascinated by how people perceive time and how I perceive time.
I have always thought that a single moment can last a lifetime. There are so many moments that seem as though they never ended in still every day there's something new and exciting to consider. It is in those moments that are new and exciting that I still find fascination and moments that last forever. The giggling laugh that seems to never end, or the snuck kiss that was only a few seconds but seemed like a lifetime. Either one becomes something special and still there is more.
This is another case where you may be saying “So what” but humor me a moment. if we can make the exciting and fun moments in our life last longer doesn't it make sense that we will enjoy our days more fully? This month I had the honor of spending time with a significant number of authors and readers and enjoying each moment that I could. it wasn't as though I was going to make a mint but it was a lot of fun. Some of the authors shared much more and gave of themselves to give others knowledge. Some authors just read and moved on. Some readers found that book that they just would never be able to put down. These moments were long and enjoyable moments and I am thankful for them. there was even a moment where someone expressed negativity towards me, I am used to that. Even that turned out to be a positive. Again I am thankful for this time.
so as the sun sets on another day, enjoy your day like no others and make it as though this is the first best day you can have. In the process let's all have a little fun and make our moments positive ones that are longer than most, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and wow what a day…
