The sun sets on another day...

I know I know, I may be weird, but I like the smell of pine and balsam. Some people do and some do not, but I feel pretty good about it!

I remember as a child smelling balsam fir incense, and it being a happy memory. The woods and all the things in the woods rushed back to me every time I smelled those smokey scents. I found a little bit of peace in the moments, and a lot of the time I would just smile and feel the moments go by.

So what is it that gets you? Is there some special scent that brings out a special peace in you? Is it something that you can just feel inside? I can only say that those smelly moments are actually the most memorable sometimes, and those moments often are the most peaceful.

So as the sun sets on another day, listen, feel, smell. Well, it sounded good for a moment. Find a way to get your pleasant past memories back, and enjoy every day you can, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and laugh with it when you can...

The sun sets on another day...

I am stopping writing for a moment so I can write. I hope you can take a second and figure that one out.

I read a post by a fellow writer that struck me tonight. I read a lot, perhaps more than a lot, and as anyone reading is aware, I write a lot as well, sometimes to the point of silliness. Sometimes just to be silly. If you write, you know how that is.

So, tonight someone wrote about some good books and how the incite and inspire. their starting statement echos what I have said a lot since my first book, not everyone will like what you write. It is true, It is why I try to read so many other choices and give people honest suggestions beyond me. I digress. 

The point of the post in my opinion was to show that if you are debating a  book, discussing a story, talking good, talking bad, or just talking about a series of words put together by a writer, they have succeeded. We are inspired by words each day, many spoken, some unspoken, but we have to look quietly into the possibilities and see that words alone are not what inspires us, but the passion and imagination of the talented writers that touch our souls.

So as the sun sets on another day, and with that in mind, I will turn my head back to Fateful Friend, and then Silent Sister and more. I only hope the words I receive from fans I never thought I would have keep pushing me, and all the other writers out there, to a place where we succeed, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and embrace your imagination...

The sun sets on another day...

Home again. I worked and pressed before the rain, and got lost in the moments as I got yard, wood, and more completed. There never seems to be enough time. I was doing several things at once and suddenly I heard a screeching cry. As I looked up a majestic eagle circled, then dove somewhere in the woods and I stopped for a moment and smiled.

Sometimes something needs to shake us out of the long and tortuous world we are in. Sometimes there needs to be a cry from the skies that just makes us pause and realize the world is bigger than just what we are doing. We need to pay close attention, because, well, what we think is a mountain today, may well be a molehills tomorrow. Take the extra minute, smile, and laugh, and set aside the apprehensions, preconceived notions, and anxieties holding you back.

Today, as I worried about who to call next, what to do next, and all the things that have to be done, I heard that eagle, and I stopped, then got one thing done (I burned a lot of brush). Now it is on to the next challenge. Now i is a new focus and it to will fall.

So as the sun sets on another day, as the world pushes your head down there will be a call from the skies to raise up. Pay attention, know what is going on, and in the process realize how good you truly are at being you. No one else can do it. Then overcome your obstacles, whatever they are, and have a better day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and listen for the eagle...

The sun sets on another day...

A warm rain is far better than cold snow. Or is it? Perhaps today the warm rain that became the cool rain will be as icy as anything else we have faced with snow.

I was in a discussion today about how people generalize and how people apply words and phrases to large groups of people. I have been caught several times generalizing for far too large a group but I learn from that every time I do so. I say often, if you speak in absolutes, you should sell insurance.

In that vein, to put it simply you cannot say that all warm rain is better than snow nor can you say that all of a certain group of people react in a certain way. Instead we have to take each thing we face as we face it and determine the good or the bad or the indifferent based on the situation and based on what is being faced at that time.

I have said many times we are the sum of our experiences but I have also said that sometimes we should listen to others who have had larger groups of experience and learn from them. Simply, sometimes we need to listen more than we talk.

So as the sun sets on another day consider well all the things you say you never know if you are understanding the situation completely. Consider well when you are listening to someone that you may not have a similar experience. Consider well how today offers new possibilities and each day offers us oh the ability to grow. Grow as you can, learn even more, and listen to people no matter what.

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