The sun sets on another day...

Rain rain, fog is here, its that special time of year, mist and ice and snow all night, tomorrow may be quite a fright but warm I'll stay and toasty too, its just not worth my feeling blue.

If you are anywhere close to where I am then tonight and tomorrow may well be Armageddon. "This here air mass is gonna hit this other air mass and the result is gonna be an inch of ice in this model, or in this model we will have 2 inches, and in this here model it will miss us and head to eastern Europe."

Fun huh?

Well, I took the time to be ready and now I'm just not gonna think about ti anymore. Why? Well, easy. Why should I? If it comes it will be here and I will deal, and if it doesn't, well, I have a small stack of stuff to clean up, but no lost thoughts.

Truth is, and I know this is scary, it is hard to predict the weather. It would be amazing to see people betting on weather predictions because I am pretty sure the odds are in favor of the house. Truth is, life is about the same way. If you think you know what tomorrow is going to bring, well, think again. tomorrow is about as unpredictable as the weather. Why not prepare a little if you see something coming, and then face it as it comes? Why not enjoy right now? (I really like this idea)

So, as the sun sets on another day, I will watch a movie and doze while the ice creeps in, and probably find that there is nothing coming. It could be fun, or it could be a pain, but it is always coming, good or bad, no matter what. Enjoy it, react to it, and live it each day!

Sleep sweet, stay warm, and watch the horizon...

The sun sets on another day...

There was no sunset I could see tonight but I knew it was still there. Sometimes you just have to feel and know and realize that eventually you will see it again and it is there now, beyond your sight.

If you haven't guessed by any of my writing I am a hopeless romantic. I feel strongly that there are people who feel unbridled passion for each other. From a romantic standpoint this means there is no end to the excitement and powerful feelings between these type of people.

To be driven by passion means that there are other things that are highly powerful as well. To be driven by passion sometimes means there is disappointment in your life. It is hard for me to relay some of the more difficult times where passion was just not enough. In those moments you realize how rare and special passion can be.

So where are you? Do you have passion that cannot be contained or do you struggle the find even a little passion in your life? Do you feel so deeply that the world fades away or do you feel numb and cannot find what others are talking about? Are you so powerfully engaged that you see everything or does the world pass you by like a ship in the night?

I'd like to say that there was some point of reference for anyone. So far I have not found that. I have found only a few people like me that feel so deeply they want to squeeze every moment out of the world. More often I have found people just want to get by. Those people give what they can get away with in a relationship and in their lives and do not understand the depth of the passion they could be feeling. I am sure there are many many more out there I just have not found who feel passion deeply, I just don't find them often. All I can suggest is find your passion and latch onto it. Whether it be a person a place or a thing the power of passion 10 truly make someone feel even more.

So as the sun sets on another day, passion is what gives us discovery, passion is what gives us peace, passion is what gives a spirit, passion is what makes the world a better place. Live for passion everyday and I feel you will live a very satisfying life, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love with all your heart, and live with even more...

The sun sets on another day...

Sunsets and snowflakes are as unique as, well as they are. If you think about it though there are so many other things that are unique.

Our fingerprints are unique as well as our retinas. The grain in wood is unique and no two trees are exactly the same. The waves coming across the ocean or the lake are unique and even though they may be similar the patterns will always be different. Our voices and the sounds of animals are unique and you can pick someone out just by their voice. (I guess if you were a bird you might be able to pick out another bird). Come to think of it maybe unique is unique. Maybe just maybe there are more things that are unique then there are things that are the same.

I am often in awe of all the wonderful things in the world. I am thankful for those things in my life that have been unique. Mostly I am thankful for people because people are the most unique things of all. There is no way that anyone could have predicted all of the wonderful people in their lives and there is also no way anyone could have predicted those people that, through perhaps not so wonderful, made us learn great lessons. Be thankful for them both.

So as the sun sets on another day, remember there is only one you. As the sun sets on another day remember there is only one of each of the people who are important to you. As the sun sets on another day remember it is up to you to help everyone understand how unique they are to you and to the world. Work hard to do so and be happy all you can, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and just wow...

The sun sets on another day...

Here I sit, trying to get ready to plan a year, or at least a few months. Trying to consider what I do not know for a moment in favor of what I can do now, and what I can do going forward. 

I have stated over and over not to live in the past or the future, but sometimes you have to plan. So now I am planning for this year. To sell books and hopefully spread a little happiness along the way. It works. I will plan it and set it aside and go back to the present until the future presents itself. (Play on words eh?) That is a way to work out life, maybe not the best, nor the worse, but it is a way.

How about you? Are you ready for today or tomorrow? Do you pine about the future or do you plan it and let it come? What mysteries are you ready to experience? What life will you lead in the today and the tomorrow?

I would like to think we can all live the best life possible. I know I am not perfect, not by any means, but I try to do what is right. Sometimes what is right for me or for you may not be right for everyone, but it does not make it less right. Sometimes what is right for everyone may not be the path for you. Choose wisely. 

So as the sun sets on another day guess what the secret is? It is you. It is you choosing a path that is right for you. It is all of us going down a good path and finding a way to be happy each and every day, not because we make good choices always but because we make the choices good for us, sometimes in spite of our choices, sometimes with the help of our choices, but always our choices, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live on...
