The sun sets on another day...

If you want to see the sunset, you have to be able to have clear glass from inside, or be outside in the fresh air with nothing but air between you and the sun. 

We often have glass in front of our lives that is either clear or cloudy. It is up to us to keep that glass as clear as possible in order to let us see the world around us. Many people let the grime of their lives cloud their windows. Things last past relationships, rough times and even good times can sometimes create grime that does not let us see beyond ourselves and in doing so we often miss the sunsets and sunrises of our lives, simply lost in the moments that pass us by.

There is of course hope. There are people who try to lift us up, people who can show us a new way, people who love us and have our best interests at heart, and people who care, if only a little, about what tomorrow will bring, We seriously need to gravitate towards those people and find a way every day to have the best view possible.,

So as the sun sets on another day, consider your life, and all the things you have as good things, even if the felt bad. Brush away the negatives in your life and instead embrace the positives that will guide you forward always. Keep your "windows" clean and clear, and see the world for the wonderful place it is. Sometimes though, look through those windows and watch the sunrise, welcoming a new day. Watch the sunset, giving us closure for the night. Make every day the best it cab be, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, wake early, and love life!

The sun sets on another day...

Some when long ago as the sun set across the land someone decided today is a good day for something. They marked that day so they could celebrate it. So Holiday's were born.

Normally Holiday's don't tend to mean much, but we are here on All Saints day, sitting in the cold rain, watching the world go by, and I considered all the Holidays we see daily, and those we cherish, and worse, those we ignore. Today, we can celebrate national cook for your pet day, family literacy day, deep fried clams day, world vegan day, or even national vinegar day. All these holidays have meaning to someone, and some of them have meanings to a great many people.

Today I kinda like National Authors Day where we should all write to our favorite author. This Holiday has been around since the 20s, but I was not even aware of it until today and I have read an ungodly number of books searching for knowledge. As I read about this Holiday and a lot more I considered that Holiday's are special not because of the Holiday, but because of the people that surround them. As each day passes, we build upon it simply by being a part of a day that is important to us, and making it special to others. It doesn't matter if that is the most well known holiday in the world, or the least, what matters is how we celebrate.

So as the sun sets on another day, Happy National Authors day! Happy Day that we celebrate those who make something of nothing and try to open our minds to move. If that doesn't work for you, how about Happy Day, and make that Happy Day a day that you will love for you, and maybe for those who are important to you. Spread the word, make it real, but live it with all your heart, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, Happy Authors day, and love life....

The sun sets on another day...

This evening the skies were dark, foreboding and the air crisp. The cool air grabbed at those who dared go outside, and seemed to rip and rend at the skin of any who had the courage to venture out. Another Halloween, come and come again. Each year a little different from the year before, each night unique in its own way.

It is not surprise there are two holidays I love. Christmas of course (I sing carols all year round) and Halloween. When I was a kid I was often stuck at home giving out candy because no one else was there to do it. My Halloween runs were late and often very fulfilling as people dumped bags of candy in my simple pillow case just to get rid of it. More than anything I loved watching scary movies and listening to radio shows on Halloween, why, because I loved the thrill of the thrill.

So this Halloween let's take a shot at fear with 3 stories I wrote, made for the season:

  1. Alone and Afraid - Where technology has different ideas for a girl and her cat.
  2. Weeds - Where our hero is a fun loving country boy with dreams of the stars.
  3. Protect his heart - A popular story that I wrote for last Halloween that explores the joy of bar dating.

So as the sun sets on another day hope you can take a second an enjoy one or two, and have some fun with a little suspense, or laugh because I couldn't get your blood rolling even a little bit. I don't mind. As this October comes to an end, my biggest hope is that you have fun all the time, and on this day have a little more fun, no matter what.

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

The sun sets on another day...

Today I sat in a planning meeting looking at the future of a truly magnificent area. I enjoyed the moments and as I took a break for a short time looked out through the storm to see a brilliant blast of light shinning down on the other side of the lake. This was not a small light, this was over the top even for someone like me who is over the top. As I watched, a rainbow formed and lit up the lake light a kaleidoscope. As I went back in, I was given new inspiration, and the meetings went well.

Sometimes inspiration comes from the most subtle of sources, but sometimes inspiration is truly a massive press to show you exactly what you should be looking at, and will lift you not only high, but higher! (and higher and higher) When we see a sign to give us inspiration we truly need to take a moment and consider what we should be doing! To do any less would be a difficult attack on ourselves. So today, I took the moment, wrote a three page suggestion and got fired up for Nanowrimo and wrote a blog article, and then this! It is all amazing if you look at it the right way, and it should not take a rainbow to inspire us to be better.

So as the sun sets on another day and this confusing post, well, look for a rainbow, but if you don't see it, make your own rainbow. Build a fleet of rainbows and be the person that find the pot of gold underneath them all!

Sleep sweet, chase the rainbow, and find happiness no matter what...

(Oh, and yes, the picture is real and it was awesome!)
