The sun sets on another day...

A few more words. That's what I need

A few more words each day

A few more words to set the tone

A few more words to drive the day

A few more words to set a course

A few more words to make it right

In the end a few more words is good, but our actions make it right

Way past 15,000 words now, and flying fast.

So as the sun sets on another day. Words are great but actions speak louder. Make your words as powerful as you can, and make your actions even more so, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy every day...

The sun sets on another day...

It is cool, crisp and snowy, really snowy.

So as I sit I wanted to update for this short post today. I am pressing hard and at over 13,000 words on Silent Sister.

Fateful Friend is in stores waiting for you or available online.

Burial Ground is complete, but I need to run through the edits a few times.

And a partridge in a pear tree. (Just so you know)

I hope you have a super night, and maybe even better. Power just came back on, and I am catching up, so have a good night, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love, and enjoy the day...

The sun sets on another day... 

I have been very lucky and have known a lot of very amazing authors in both Kentucky and Michigan. Their imagination brings joy, happiness, sadness, or fear, or a dozen dozen other emotions.

As I thought about the authors I considered that we are all authors, each and every one of us. We are authors of our own fate, our own life, our happiness, our sadness, and everything in between. I have found that many people don't see their involvement in their future. The truth is we are responsible for our lives and only we can make them either good or bad. 

As an author of your life are you doing everything you can to make the best story possible? Are your bits of prose things that you will remember fondly for all time? Are you proud of the tome you have created?

If your answer is no perhaps it's time to start an edit and build a new story. Perhaps it's time take control and make your life and every sunset from now on the most amazing it can be. After all if we only have 29000 sunsets and these are counting down how can we afford to miss a single one? 

So as the sun sets on another day it is a great day. As the sun sets on another day we have written a good story. As the sun sets on another day let's make it even better, no matter what.

 Sleep sweet, love life, and live it everyday...

The sun sets on another day...

Sunset was wet and gooey. As I drove I looked to the sky and a triangle appeared. Blue and pink sky in a field of darkness. I considered for moment how in every darkness there was a light.

There can't help but be darkness from time to time. We run from it, avoid it, chastise it, hide from it, deny it and a lot more. As I watched sunset last night I thought about the roller coaster ride of life and about the ups and downs that happen inevitably in every persons life.

I have to start by saying some are self imposed. There are people who find darkness in the noon sunlight, and those that find light in the midnight moonless sky, those people are surviving, but doing so as they can, and perhaps not taking all life has to offer and digesting it. (Or maybe they are and have a secret, only time can tell). For most of us, darkness is tough and light feels good, and we ride a small or large ride going up and down and controlling what we can.

My point today, besides the one on my head, is that we cannot appreciate the light without the darkness. We also cannot be wary of the darkness without the light. It makes sense but some people avoid one and in doing so avoid the other. You pretty much have to realize that for every super massive awesome high, there may be a super massive oops oh my goodness fall. 

I have been there and done that a lot. There are some things that have been fantastic beyond belief, only to fall so hard I was worried I would not find myself. You know what, the rises come back, and I find my way to the high side again. How about you? Have you seen those falls that hurt? Have you seen the highs that elate? Those are more about life than a lot of other things simply because the highs and lows let you know you are alive. The positives bring you up, and negatives down, but the ride is where we live.

So as the sun sets on another day, the triangle of light in our life may well be a door to push us higher. We can push ahead, find a way to see the good in anything. Yeah, the bad is there. It lets us know how great the good is, and we can embrace every moment and live it, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy the ride...
