The sun sets on another day...

As the sun sets, well, if you chase it, it is fun, if you chase the seagulls, it is fun, if they chase you back, well, there are a lot of them. It is still fun.

I always giggle a little about just about everything. There are few things that really do not have a humorous side. I think George Carlin said it best, almost anything can be funny, it depends on the exaggeration, how much you exaggerate details the funny level. To me everything seems like an exaggeration, hence it has some funny built into it. Can anyone do it, absolutely.

We often laugh at things that are over the top. Sometimes it is that pain of someone dancing on a table, and falling through, sometimes it is the baby being held by his father and made to dance like Michael Jackson, and sometimes it is just a few words put in the right order.

So, speaking of seagulls...

A man in a movie theater notices what looks like a seagull sitting next to him.

"Are you a seagull?" asked the man, surprised.

"Yes." said the seagull (Yeah, he can talk)

"What are you doing at the movies?" The man asks curiously.

The seagull replied, "Well, I liked the book."

So as the sun sets on another day, don't wait for the book, have some fun now. Make the world a better place witha  few extra laughs, and enjoy the moments you can laugh, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, laugh hearily, and love as deeply as you laugh...

The sun sets on another day...

As the sun passes in the sky over our head it brings inspiration to a mass of people. Some see it as inspiration, some as more, some as an annoyance, some write about the light, some about the shadows, but most find some sort of inspiration. The words describe some of what they see, and some of what they don't see, but can words really give us a pure picture?


Words can give us a taste that is so clear that you can develop an appetite, the savory taste of a salty snack can bring to mind dozens of images, and the ideas allow our imaginations to be set free.

Words can describe a sound so precisely that our ears may ring in anticipation at the thought of a high pitched whine, a spoken word, or a train whistle coming in the distance.

Words can describe a picture completely and give a viewer some point of reference on how something looks.

Words can describe a feeling, and give that feeling a taste of reality and power and life, and make someone cringe or melt in anticipation.

In the end, they are just words. Words can excite emotion and so many people use words as weapons to spread positive thoughts, and some to spread hate.

Perhaps today we should all try to take a more positive run at life, perhaps today we should all realize that if you embrace hate, you become hate, and yes, there is a certain power there, but it is not a good one. Perhaps we should realize that if we embrace love, we become love, and all the goodness that is built into love and all that it holds for us. The only problem I see, is that is sometimes mutually exclusive. Don't let it be, there is a time and place for everything, and use words to make the time the best it can be, not just today, but every day!

So as the sun sets on another day, be wary. We are hunting words and phrases and sentences and more. All of them will show us a new beginning, and a way to a better place if we let them. Use your words wisely, and let them show your passion and your positivity, and let hate and anger slide to the side, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, find a higher road, and live it, each and every day...

The sun sets on another day...

Chasing the sun the clouds appear, there is a fork in the road, one mysterious and full of hazy fog, the other dark but clear, which one do I choose?

In reality, the fork in the road was a mess, and both were full of fog and dark and mysterious, but as I sat at the end of a street, wondering which way I should go I considered all the times in life I had been at such a fork. How many times did wants intersect needs, and passion intersect reason? How many times did truth battle with righteousness, and well, for lack of a better word, the need for adventure set aside the mundane every day world.

If you look at it a certain way, we are always at a question point, always at a crossroads and it is up to us to determine the best path. We sometimes have to be tough and stay the course, and sometimes, well sometimes we have to go the difficult way to make the right choice. How do we know which choice is right, well sometimes we don't. Sometimes it is a best guess, and sometimes it is self evident. This makes it a difficult choice at best, and sometimes a choice that has repercussions. Don't despair, inside the right choice is there, we just have to pay attention to what it is, and what we should do.

So as the sun sets on another day, there is a light that shines, and it shines on the fork in the road. Sometimes it shows us the right path, but more often than not it is up to us to make the right choices, to find our way, and to make our 29000 sunsets the best possible days they can be. You can do it, I know you can, just pay attention to what is right, and find your way, no matter what.

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

The sun sets on another day...

Epic. The word brings a lot of things to mind. Some people think it is a moment, some think it is just a synonym for greatness, but many know that it is a journey that is well past the norm, a story or poem or work of art that transcends time and space, and maybe a little bit more.

As we pass through 29000 sunsets think of the epic story we tell, a ballad or a poem that would make Homer shudder. His small acts of demi-gods and men paling in comparison to what we are and what we have become. Look at how we soar the skies, talk across the world in an instant, share voice and video, and so much more. For their time it was epic to fight off Scylla and Charybdis, but for us, those are now rocks and tide-pools, mastered by modern ship designs and the power of men. How much the world has changed.

For us, the moments can be defined as easily as back in Greek and Roman days, at our core is a story of who we are, and our epic is those we have interacted with, those we work with, live with and of course those we love. As Hercules bore his mighty quests, so do we struggle each day to find our way and look to the light that leads us forward. I know, this can be read a variety of ways, but it is simple: the world is a challenge, and all of us are up to the challenge each day until we are no more. In fact we must be up to the challenge each day because it defines us, our past, and our future.

In the process, what do we leave behind? There are our children, our words, and our photos and artifacts of the journey we are on. Tonight I saw 2 epic photos. You can see them here and here. Two sides of the same scene, two moments that converge on a place. We all have an opportunity to do something but people like these and the many who have sent in photos  to 29000 sunsets truly leave an epic tale behind, a tale of beauty and more. Quite honestly, a tale to remember.

So as the sun sets on another day, consider your epic story, and find a way to leave it behind for others to share years from now. Tell the story with photos or words or video or something but make the story one that is truly epic. Sure, it will have ups and downs, but as Virgil wrote there were always tragedies before their could be peace and happiness. Show the story, and make the world a better place, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and make the world a better place, one moment at a time...
