The sun sets on another day…

Sunset was lost again behind the clouds. I enjoyed it though as I sat in my warm room reading a book.

I've been reading a lot lately and will be posting a lot of reviews pretty soon on another page. My thoughts behind all these reviews will be to show people that I appreciate their writing and give other people some idea of what they're in for when they read. With that in mind I thought about my books for a moment and more importantly the first book in the Masterson Files series: Vengeful Son.

Some fun reviews are:

“Andrew is a super-tight writer. I knew that going into this book. Andrew understands the twist ending like few others I've read. I knew that, too. What I didn't know was that Andrew also knows how to give you depth of emotion and layers of intellect, without making it seem like the characters have something to prove. These are real people he writes about, confronted with extraordinary circumstances, that in truth, simply make up their ordinary lives. Having that glimpse into their motivations - and the lack of the necessity to explain themselves - is refreshing and alluring.”

“Took me a bit to get used to reading it because it’s written in third person. I’ve been reading a lot of first-person books and they make you feel like your right there watching it all happen. This book made it feel like someone was telling me the story. The story was interesting and kept you guessing.”

“If you like action packed crime fighting stories this book is right for you. I would say this book reminded me a lot of the Bourne movies and a little of Mr. and Mrs. Smith I look forward to picking up the next book in this series, Sinful Father, and seeing what the characters get themselves into next.”

“Vengeful Son is a wild ride into the tormented life and times of Michael Masterson, part assassin for hire, part government operative- is he a villain, a hero, or both? If, as you enjoy this intriguing novel, you think you've figured it all out, think again. The twists and turns are endless and the action begins on page one. Well done, Mr. Smith; Well done!”

“Unrealistic action hero but a really fun read. One of the few books of this genre that actually gets most of the gun details right. Michael, the common man's James Bond.”

Who knows I may give a whole lot more.

So as the sun sets on another day, remember that every writer likes to see their reviews and there's so much to enjoy if you actually read . Take a moment , read a book and enjoy the plot and the journey to another world , no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and read more…

The sun sets on another day…

Sunset was amazing again and as I watched it was pretty cool. I mean how else can you say it except that sunset is always pretty cool.

It's amazing to me the things that people think are cool and the things that they don't. Sometimes people look at the wild and crazy as just the coolest things in the world while they overlook the plain and ordinary not realizing that the plain and ordinary is more likely more exciting then that craziness they're obsessing over.

I remember watching a commercial when I was a kid about a present the child wanted. The child kept begging and begging and the parent became more and more haggard. The child made a good case and said over and over how wonderful it was going to be until finally the parent relented and got the toy. Once the child got the toy the lights dimmed for a second and then you heard the amazing statement “that wasn't very fun after all”.

I think about that commercial occasionally simply because there are so many in the world that are so involved in that thought of how fantastic something is going to be that they miss how fantastic something else is. If this post is to mean anything it should mean open your eyes and pay attention to more than just the surface of everything. If you do that I have a feeling you're going to find a lot more fun out there than you ever expected.

So as the sun sets on another day the sunset was pretty cool and I think you are too so take a moment and don't think that you're plain think that you're plain amazing and be happy with yourself every day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and believe in you…

The sun sets on another day…

Sunset was high and bright and sparkled the sky away. As it fell across the horizon I can think of nothing but how lucky the day had been.

There's an old song called “walking on sunshine” that comes to mind quite often. The song is a lot of fun because it points out how being sure of things makes us just feel great . In the case of the song it is the feeling of being in love and knowing that there is a day coming when two people will be able to be together. In my case it's often far more simple. Another day with another solution and a few exciting moments in between makes me feel like I'm walking on sunshine.

How about you? What makes you feel spectacular and like the day couldn't be any better. What is that fantastic solution that solves your incredible problem?

Pretty awesome to think about isn't it.

So as the sun sets on another day let's take a moment and be thankful for all the things we have and think about all the things we can do to make life a little better, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and sunshine is amazing…

The sun sets on another day…

Sunset was seriously scrumptious and I enjoyed watching the giant globe slide into the western sky like an overly yellow moon pie.

Numbers have always been a fascination of mine. My Grandfather was a professor at a college and while I stayed there during the summers I was always given complex math problems every day. I thought of this is tremendous fun at the time and still do. I learned how to use a slide rule and an Abacus very early and still think the ten key is the fastest way to add numbers.

If you think about all the numbers that we face in life it is the basis of this site and the thought process behind this site. If you live an average life expectancy you will get 29,000 sunsets in your life. That means you will get 6,960,000 hours in your life. Which translates to over 417,000,000 minutes that you are spending on this earth. Seems like a lot doesn't it.

As I'm thinking about it the minutes are passing 1 by 1 and as I'm thinking about those numbers more minutes are passing, then hours, then days. It doesn't take long to realize that the world is spinning with or without us and those days slide away all too easily. As I say in the start of this entire series of blog posts if today Wednesday 28,999 would you do anything different? Is there that one person you would see or that one thing you would do? Is there the one sorry wish you'd said or the one thing you wish you had said that you never had a chance to say out loud? If you would do anything differently perhaps you need to consider why you're not doing it today.

We are full of excuses often and sometimes we need to set aside those excuses. I had a discussion with someone special recently about the time they had spent and how many hours there are in a week and what they were focusing them on. What is important to you? How much time do you spend making that important? Is it enough?

All good questions and I will keep asking until we are all living a life that we're happy with.

So as the sun sets on another day the math problem is easy. Solve it for today not for tomorrow and let's make every day count , no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and today counts…
