The sun sets on another day...

Row row row your boat, gently down the stream, merrily merrily merrily merrily nothing is as it seems.

A wise man once said that "we are such stuff that dreams are made of". I take it a little further, are we the stuff that dreams are made of or do we go further and make the dreams and our reality? I am a firm believer that we are better than any dream, stronger than any wish, more powerful than any nightmare, and more focused than any delusion. We are not just the stuff dreams are of, we are the stuff that is far beyond life, and we can transcend death, for we define a world that is both awe inspiring and amazing.

How can it not be so? Look at the worlds of art you see and notice even the lesser of them all is a masterpiece of imagination. Look into the mirror, and behold a miracle and more. I cannot easily describe the wonder I see each and every day, yet here I am, trying to describe it every day. This site may be 29000sunsets and it may appear it is focused on sunsets, but really, it is focused on the wonderment of all the people that touch the world, and all those people that I interact with, and a few hundred more that just make the world a better place. It is the idea of 29000 sunsets in a life, that makes life so precious, and the idea that we are wonderful, that makes you so precious.

So as the sun sets on another day, yes, it is a super day again and yes you are an amazing person, but mostly, we are the stuff that build dreams into realities, and make passion a thing that will not be set aside. Find passion, find life, find all that you desire and make it a good no matter what.

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

The sun sets on another day...

You know, we dance for a lot of reasons. Some are good, some not so good. Some inspire us, some cause us to perspire, and in the end, dancing adds fun to everything, well, if you enjoy dancing that is. forced ice dancing, where you have no dance to look like a complete buffoon, or fall on your bottom, is something else entirely. Today as the sun set on the western shore of Michigan saw forced ice dancing, and a few sore bottoms.

It always amazes me when people avoid doing something that might be fun. they find a way to pass it up, but don't realize that they could have been having fun doing it. Dancing is one, and I understand there are lots of people who don't know how to dance, or dislike dancing, but if you like it, why avoid it? Sometime though people avoid things just to not try it. It is like when my kids were young and I would ask them if they had something like Brussels sprouts before, they would say "I don't like them, I tried them at Mom's" and I am sure it went the opposite as well. Sometimes we avoid things for the sake of avoiding. When they finally did try it, they ate it a lot, or rode the roller coaster, or did the swings or whatever we faced, but it was rare when it was actually tried to find something that was terrible.

It is often the same way with older people. So set in their daily routine that doing something new is horrid, or horrible, or no fun, when they have no concept of what it really is. Dancing is one of those, but there are so many more. The point is, try it once for real to find out if you like ti, then go on if you don't, but at least you can say you tried.

So as the sun sets on another day, take a moment and add something to your bucket list, add something you have not done before, and make it happen, and if you get a moment, laugh, love, sing and dance, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, stay warm, and enjoy hot chocolate, it is yummy...

The sun sets on another day...

The sun appears to travel around unbound and furiously moving across the sky. In reality it is we who are unbound and moving about the sun's sky, but hey, who's keeping track.

I have been considering the anecdote that some people are unhinged. The means they are all over the place, slightly irregular, and passionate about everything and even about nothing. When this was presented to me initially, I was frustrated by the thought, but after considering it with far too much activity, I know that the idea of being unhinged is not necessarily a bad one. After all, being unhinged means you are free to explore possibilities. If being unhinged is linked to passion, so much the better, and passion is a little slice of heaven that everyone should have, but few people seem to have in their lives.

Perhaps being unhinged gives a better view to the world, perhaps being unhinged makes the world a bigger place filled with possibilities, or perhaps it is just a stage of life where you can see a little bit wider, and a little bit farther but I for one, will take being unhinged to being hinged anytime. I would rather not be lost in the confines of someones box, burdened by time, constrained by feelings if inadequacy or focus on everything except what is important. I would rather lose the hinges, and open the door to something a little more.

I have known quite a few people in my life that are "unhinged" and they live life for the moment and press it all the time. I have also known quite a few people who think they are unhinged, that wear big chains that hold them down. to me, unhinged now means simply not being so tied to any idea that there are not possibilities.

So as the sun sets on another day, lose the hinges and be more each day. Lose the hinges and take life to a new level by not focusing on the transient items that get us nowhere, but instead on the important things in life that you may be missing. Embrace passion, embrace the fire in your mind and heart, and embrace life. If you do, you may find a way to a new level of excitement, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and unhinge your dreams...

The sun sets on another day...

The sun sets on another day, ad yes, it is Fry-day. A day of rest, relaxation, er, more work, and more work until, well, we can rest maybe for a day, maybe two.

As the sun beats down on us all, I find we too are usually furiously frying ourselves, making the world a better place, and trying desperately to survive this thing called life.

Prophetic eh?

Maybe we need to focus a little, and try to have great days, and instead of furiously frying, perhaps we can take a few minutes and enjoy life a little more. Maybe we need to try to enjoy each day in spite of all the extra's put upon us. Maybe we just need to stop and enjoy a sunset.

See, this whole post to come full circle. If you can't enjoy all of your day, find a piece to enjoy, then another, then another and maybe someday you will enjoy it all, each day, with all the passion it deserves.

So as the sun sets on another day, we can't help but be furiously frying, but maybe we can take a few minutes, maybe a few more, and furiously enjoy our time, even if it is a little. Maybe we can enjoy our moments enough to find the passion to be more and more to the world, and in the end, make a better life for ourselves, no matter what. (I know I try each and every day)

Sleep sweet, love life, and fry eggs, not yourself...
