The sun sets on another day...

Blue skies, shining on me, nothing but blue skies are what I see.

I was driving home to drive to somewhere else and marveling at the color of the sky, and I started signing a song.

You can guess what it was, but the blue skies are infectious right now, and wow, the world is a beautiful place.

Smile, reach out to others, count your blessings, and be that person that leads others when you can, and follows as a necessity. Be that person that makes a difference every day.

So as the sun sets on another day, well, I think it is cool you can be that person. find your way. Find a path to seeing the blue skies, even when they are grey, and enjoy your moments, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live it daily...

The sun sets on another day...

Sunset was coming, then it was not, I watched as the diligent clouds swallowed away the evening sky and brought night down around us.

I was driving a lot today. Off to clients, off to solve problems, off to adapt to the needs of the many. As I drove I considered passion a great deal and ended up laughing and listening to music about passion. I concluded several times that passion is often persuasive and drives us to our destination more fervently than many other catalysts in our lives. In fact, I felt passion can single handedly be a driver for most of the positive and negative outcomes we have in our short lives.

This is nothing new. I consider passion a lot and consider the powerful positives we can drive ourselves towards, and in the process, understand that passion drives us, good and bad, towards an outcome. Passion persuades the powerful and pious alike with equal force, keep moving.

All I give today is to be aware of the persuasive passions at play, and consider where those passions drive us daily. Consider how effective those passions are, and consider the outcomes we may soon reach. Use those passions to drive the powerful positives in our lives, and find out way, no matter what.

So as the sun sets on another day, what are you passions? Where do they push you and persuade you to go. How can you get there, and in the process, how can you find the happiness you deserve each and every day. I know it is there for you, find it, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, press forward, and love the night away...

The sun sets on another day...

Missed a movie tonight I wanted to see. Why? I won't bore you with details, but it was not fulfilling. Missed sunset too, as the wind blew and the clouds ate the evening sky.

Sometimes we just miss. It is not fair, nor right, nor anything we want to do, but it happens. I am not a big fan of missing, but it seems to happen way too much. Too many responsibilities, never enough time, even if I am going full speed all the time. Don't fret, I will continue today as I can, and make it as good as I can, and in the end, it is always a solid solution. Thankfully I have good friends, and can find a way all the time.

Still, missing is a pain. I suggest we all find a way to miss less, laugh more, and have some serious fun along the way. 

So as the sun sets on another day, (Small post today), take a moment, enjoy your day, and try not to miss the little things, the big things, or any things. If you do, find a way to do it anyway, and enjoy the cool breezes every day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, will see the movie soon, and make today the best it can be...

Sunset, wow. I say again, wow. The end to a very long day, but worth it. Wow. I know, broken record.

 I was thinking today about paradoxes and a lot of fun things that seem to happen each day. I was also thinking about writing, and getting my books complete. I have created a semi mess right now, and I wanted to take a second and get it straight because it is about to all break free. 

1- I am nearly complete with Fateful Friend - Book 4 of the Masterson files. I will be completing it first by the end of this month.

2- I have an outline and a complete story in my head for Silent Sister - Book 5 of the Masterson files - I do not have an end date for that, but if I get on a roll it may too be done by EOM.

3- I have a shell and some of the work completed for Adam - Book 1 of the Eternal Forever - My daughter is pressing me for this story because just what I have written is way over the top, and the entire series will be first person. This is to be completed by mind June.

4- I have a complete Novella for Burial Ground - a young adult story. This is complete but I intend to add a significant amount to it as it has grown a life. This one is pretty exciting as I like the story and the characters and have reached out to a local tribe for some clarifications.

5- I have a novella due for a compilation this month, I wrote quite a bit to it, but it will be a surprise.

6- I have an outline for Fiery Family - Book 6 of the Masterson files and this one will be exciting as it takes place in Eastern Kentucky and follows Ronnie.

There are numerous other items floating in my head that are nearly impossible to finish quickly unless I win the lottery.

So how can I do this? Well, I am taking a week off this month to write. I have found I can write quite a bit once I get i the groove, and I intend to do so. It will be a task but my intention is to complete 1-3-4 at a minimum. I am hopeful for more. I will post daily as I do so to ensure everyone knows what is going on. FB has a few followers but I get quite a bit of mail, and hope to create a big buzz. 


My goal is to have editing done and print copies available at the Muskegon Art Fair for the First sale, and an additional press at Once Upon a Book. Then a premiere at both the book nook and Lakeside Emporiums Treasure Alley. Once the books are complete, it is my hope to travel to Kentucky as I have worked that out as well.

I hope this is acceptable. Book 4 has taken far too long but I think it will be worth it. I pulled out nearly 10 chapters because I was going the wrong way, now I am on the right track, and this will happen quickly. 

I really appreciate everyone who reads 29000 sunsets, and I appreciate all of the people who have read the Masterson Files or have visited ShortStorySite and enjoyed those stories. The story "The Statue" has a great number of hits as well as "Protect his Heart" and I enjoy some of the mail I get from those.

So as the sun sets on another day, read, laugh, love, and have a little fun. I know I am trying every day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy your passions every day...
