The sun sets on another day...

I was sitting for a few minutes tonight watching television and an old movie came on. It was not the best movie in the world, nor the worst but it quickly reminded me of why I like one of my favorite quotes.

In it a character asked "Will you love me for the rest of my life" fully knowing they would die soon, and the answer came back with conviction, ""No, I will love you for the rest of mine." There was a lot more to it than that, but the unbridled passion that a simple statement like that says makes me feel better inside each and every day. So what, right?

Well, I would like to think that defining love, or happiness, or a dozen other items should not be done by your relationship, but by how you feel. I would like to think that somewhere inside that definition sets a boundary that is unlimited, meaning, there can be no end to a feeling once you know it is there. I now I know, it seems sometimes that this is just marvelous dribble, but if you consider, do you still feel those things inside that defined you when you were younger? Why or why not? Isn't it possible that those selfsame feeling give you access to the unlimited feelings you could be feeling right now? Could be? Should be? Are?

So there I sat, thinking for far too long. Thinking about life, love, my kids, my friends, and those that I have loved before. Thinking about hobbies and passions and the feelings inside that take us tot he next level. Thinking and somewhere in the middle of it all, I found a moment where there was no limit.

I know this may seem like an incomprehensible bunch of prattle, but maybe just about everything is just that, incomprehensible. I hope though, for just a moment, that we all find that piece of us that is unlimited, and take it to the moon and back, no matter what.

So as the sun sets on another day, sorry for the less than clear treatise on the limitlessness of what I feel, but I certainly hope somewhere inside you feel the same.

Sleep sweet, love life, unlimited...

Still going strong writing on the home stretch. A few gotchas but this has been a good week. Talked to a perfect editor, need to work out details and proceed! 

Tomorrow will resume normal 29000 sunsets. Have a super evening!

The sun sets on another day...

Only a few chapters left.

I have been impressed with my progress this week, but there have been some setbacks. Life sometimes intrudes. I set high goals, and knew I could pull them off, and then a few things happened that took my time. Now I am OK with completing one task at least.

I am putting the last few touches on Fateful Friend now, and will get a good start on Adam, but I am not far enough. This will be a challenge for the next few weeks, but it is a good challenge and I am happy with it.

All the chapters I removed have been replaced, and a lot more has filled the void. In the end, I am happy with the result. What more could you ask for.

Thanks for reading, and making my days better ones by being there.

Sleep sweet, read all you can, and laugh the night away...

The sun sets on another day...

As the day went on the sun shone bright in the sky it filled the world with color. It was not just the color of the sky and the pure sunlight but all of the colors they did on veiled in the magnificent countryside while I drove.

It is always amazing to me how quick the world changes. There can be so many things that mean so much that change in an instant. Take the landscape I drove through today. Only a few short weeks ago it was cold and desolate and looked as though it could be easily in some Tim Burton movie where trees and branches were reaching for our very soul. Now as I look out over the countryside it is lush and beautiful and full of leaves and plants and pure greenery.

I would like to think that this type of change is something necessary in the world. We are constantly challenged with task after task that seems to be desolate and take away from who we are. It only takes a moment for that to change and for us to see the lush and fantastic positives that we have in life. It only takes a moment for us to realize did our lives are lush and full of color, if we look.

As I drove today I thought about all of the positives in my life. These positives are both people and places and yes even sometimes things. I appreciate every one of them and appreciate most all of the people that make my life special and unique. When the drudgery, the monotony, or the chaos attempts to attack who I am it is to all of those people did I feel kindred and to all of those people I am thankful for having them in my past or present. Can you say the same? What are the things that have made you see ore, and understand that the world is pretty awesome if you let it be?

So as the sun sets on another day, change is good. Change opens our minds to new possibilities. Change is that thing that allows us to see the world, and be part of a world bigger than ourselves. Are you one who embraces change or fights it? Give in, see the world, change what needs to be changed, keep what needs to be kept, and live the fullest life you can, no matter what.

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