The sun sets on another day...

The sun came in and out today, playing tag with the clouds and the moments, showing itself like a small child, then running away giggling taking the light with it for a moment. In the process the weather played a joke again, snow and ice writing across the horizon, struggling to be free if only for a moment, closing in on their moment before it is taken away.

We all close in on moments from time to time. We need to take a moment and determine when we close in on the moment. What is the moment? It can be almost anything, It can be a moment that last only a moment, or a moment that opens up a lifetime. As we close in on that moment it will be important to recognize it, then seize it as necessary. 

It is funny though, sometimes the moment you think need to be seized may not be the moment that needs to be sized, so choose well, and pay attention to the moments.

So as the sun sets on another day, consider the moments in your life, consider all the wonderful possibilities and wonderful outcomes, and as you close in on a special moment, greet it with open arms and work towards the best moment you can have, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and remember, it only takes a moment Barnaby....

The sun sets on another day...

I can ask, "Did you have any fun today?"

The question seems easy, but the complexity is both in the base of the question and the further complexity of the answer. So why is it complex at all? Well, if you answer "No, I did not have fun" you are in a moment in time where you have to question your moment in time. The bigger question is why. Why in the world did you not take the time of even a moment to have fun. Then it begins the examination of the moments and that "ah ha" when you realize that maybe you did have fun for an instant, and so it goes, until suddenly, you are not having fun realizing you had fun? Eeeek, This all sounds to complex, to involved, and perhaps even assumptive in the idea that you may well have had a moment of fun. I find I ask too many people that question far too often. So let's slap it away.

There is the other side, how did you approach the day. Was the day another in a miasmic maelstrom of never ending days serving anyone besides yourself, Icky, that sounds bad too. Let's scrap this whole idea and get back to basics.

It is morning, you wake up, there should be joy in that moment. For me, it is painful, but it passes a little as I move. Perhaps you have morning hot tea or coffee, the flavor washes over you, there is joy in that moment, or at least there is to me. You get into your car and drive and take in sights, and suddenly you are smiling to yourself. Perhaps you listen to music and sing along, and suddenly again there is a little joy. Perhaps even there is another second, a laugh, a cry or more, and more joy. Did you have any fun, maybe, or maybe not, but there was joy in some moments, so hang on to it, feel it, and remember it all through the day.

So as the sun sets on another day, pay attention to the joy of your moments, they are there, holding onto you, smiling with you, laughing with you, and going where no one expects. In the proces, try to have a little fun, and when you talk to a nut like me, say, "It was ok" and in the process enjoy a day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and make joy every day...

The sun sets on another day...

The sun came out today in all its brilliance, and along the way really really got bright thanks to the massive layer of pure white snow. In spite of the weather the sun filled the horizon with color, but was taken before the end of the day by cloud upon cloud. At least it was for me, for someone out there, there was an amazing sunset that filled you with joy and amazed a mass of people as the doors of night closed in on us.

It always interests me when I see nightfall, sometimes it is a slowly closing door, and others it slams shut quickly, taking the light with it. I prefer the slowly closing door of night as it gives us light and introduces us to the darkness, a moment at a time.

In life we often have similar doors. Some are open to us and slowly shut and we barely notice them go away. Some are quick and either painless or painful as the cut us off from whatever lay behind. Both may be positives depending on how we handle change, and both may be negatives. No matter how we slice it it is what it is.

I was in a relationship once that drug on forever. We both knew it was over, but we hung on, kept trying, even though there was nothing left. No passion, no love, not even a feeling, just the comfort of being around. That was painful for me, but comfortable for them as each day we grew further apart until it was just time to go. It worked, and we both survived.

Consider the job, the relationship, the car, the house, that move, all those things you should do but have avoided. How can you shut the door and move on, or do you need to? Consider well, and make a good decision, after all, life is what you make it and you are the caretaker to your own present, the keeper of your own past, and the key tom your own future.

So as the sun sets on another day, consider the doors that open and close for you daily. Consider them as you move forward, and determine how to approach those doors. Sometimes you will need to close them, and sometimes you will need to let others take the lead, but in the end, watch your doors and remember, they close for a reason. Be happy with life and the decisions you make, no matter what.

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

The sun sets on another day...

I just wrote a 500 word post on country music and how prophetic it can be, only to have it deleted by an internet blip. Oh well.

Rather than bore you with mudane mediocrity as I try to improve the massive post and all the thoughts behind it, I would like you to consider a few songs.

Burning house by Cam is what I was listening to, and Country Boy can Survive, and Love, Me, and Don't Take the Girl and a few more. The idea is, that many country songs are quite prophetic and show us a little wonderful philosophy, and in the process, make us think a little.

So as the sun sets on another day, just listen to a good country song, and remember the best door may contain a key not turned, or vice versa. So take a moment, check your doors, and enjoy your moments, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and open a new door...
