The sun sets on another day...

As I arrived at the beach the car next to me noted the sunset may be less than spectacular. It was golden, and becoming pink and red, and calm, very calm. To understand you must know the lake is rarely as calm as it was today. True it happens, but often Lake Michigan has waves that are awe inspiring and formidable. Tonight it was calm.

As I took a series of pictures I decided to fly the drone as well, and the world opened up. It was calm, and cool, and stunning, and maybe a little more. There was a peace in the air that reminded me of how calm life can be, and if you take a moment, you can understand how beauty is born, and consider that in spite of the turmoil all around us, that we all need a little calm.

You know, we sometimes are always looking for conflict. If you disagree, well, that is my opinion and you are more than allowed to have yours. I in fact encourage it. Let's calm ourselves though and not argue our opinions, but instead enjoy them. We are allowed our diversity and no one has the right to say another person is wrong in the realm of opinion. Why? Because it is opinion. Facts are different, but we still can remain calm. In this world we need to find the calm at the center of our souls,a nd stop and enjoy the moments and beyond, and just be at peace for a few.

I have opinions about a lot of things, and look for facts about a lot of things, and have a lot of facts floating around, but I truly want to understand more than I want to argue when it comes to opinion because it builds diversity, and allows me to stay calm, perhaps, just perhaps, we all should listen a little more, be calm, and enjoy our day. As we do, let's find days like this, and just enjoy the sunset.

So as the sun sets on another day, there will always be things that are difficult. There will always be conflict, but find your center, find your calm, and make it real for you. Then enjoy the moments and make the best of everything, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love to the moon and back, and the stars beyond...

The sun sets on another day...

Holy rusted metal Batman, we are going in full speed and knockin' their socks off with radical waves. Well, something like that. 

The sunset tonight gave birth to the expression of a sunset as it set. It was not just a sunset, it was a projected expressive glow of light that actually looked like a second sunset, but was actually a further away sunset projected on the clouds. It was, well, wow. At one point, and in the picture, the setting sun and the reflecting setting sun looked more like a nuclear blast than a sunset at all. I was impressed, and I have seen a lot of sunsets.

In my opinion a lot of times that is all it takes. A simple expression to make you feel more complete. Maybe not everything that is real, but everything that is not so real protected by what is real. Sometimes things seem real but are not, and vice versa, so we have to look for those expressions that are really making a difference to us, and help them along. Sometimes you have to believe, even if you see the mirrors, and sometimes a surprise is a good thing, even if you know it is coming.

In the end, maybe we should all express ourselves a little more and make the world a better place, if only for an instant.

So as the sun sets on another day, wow, it was a great sunset, and even though the last part of it was a reflection, it was maybe even better for that moment. (and it made it last a little longer too!) Find a moment, live your moment, and make today the best day by expressing yourself and letting others express their thoughts to you. You may be happy at the result.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live it every day...

The sun sets on another day...

For a moment the sun was out, and there was the promise of a sunset. As I waited for a short time, the clouds rolled in, the lightning began, and it was a storm.

It was funny, I had no effect on the world, yet the world had an effect on me. I thought about the storm, and it was bad for a sunset picture, but it was beautiful, amazing, stunning and downright pretty. It was just like Life can be, so I enjoyed the wind, enjoyed the storm, and smiled at my fortune for being a part of it.

Sometimes life is the same.

You smile for a moment, enjoy the way things are going, think they will go super, and then something bad happens. It seems bad, it looks bad, it may even hurt bad, but in the end it may not be that bad. (Might be, but let's say its not). I remember the song, "Unanswered Prayers" and I think a lot about the things that we want, and the things we need, and what we miss out on may not be where we can go.

So as the sun sets on another day, and I miss the sunset, and enjoy the storm, perhaps we should all take a moment, and take stock of the wonderful moments we have had, and the wonderful moments we will have and put it all together and just enjoy the evening. After all, life is a serious bit of fun of we let it be, and the world is a better place because you (yes you) are in it. 

Sleep sweet, love with all your heart, and live for the moment on the way to beyond...

The sun sets on another day...

Tonight is story time. 

So, I worked hard today and went to see the sunset. As I did so the fog rolled in thicker and thicker and when I got to shore, the fog was so thick I could barely see the water. I could see no end, 15 minutes to sunset, I headed home. As I drove away further and further the sunset began to come out. I have seen this before where at the lake itself was covered but at a distance it was amazing. I got home, rolled out of the truck and set the drone up in seconds. I sent it off with the only micro card in my hand, it rose to the sky, the sunset was amazing and then the dreaded "Card Full".

Ooops.

To be fair I was not planning on flying the drone, but it was silly of me not to leave it fully ready for flight. I had 3 batteries and 4 for my camera, I just had not put a micro card in the camera for the drone.

You know in life we sometimes plan for everything and it just does not work out the way we want it to work out. We can get mad, get frustrated, go a little crazy, or maybe we can go a different direction. Maybe we can just find another way and make it work the best we can. There is never a reason to let the world close in on us, maybe we just need to take a moment and stop, then laugh a little, and find another way. Even if it doesn't work out the way we want, maybe we can find something else that is as beautiful, in my case, a picture of a tulip from Holland today. It all works if we can keep our head and realize it is not worth getting angry over.

So as the sun sets on another day, I wish everything always worked out the way we wanted, but sometimes life throws us a curve ball, so we have to swing a little low and to the side to hit it out of the park. I know we all have the ability to do so, let's make it happen, each and every day no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy all you can...
