The sun sets on another day...

Today, slow down for a minute and laugh. There are a lot of things to be happy about. Take a second and enjoy a few. If you can't, well, take a few more minutes and watch the sunset if it is out.

For me, today, I am going to celebrate Christmas a little, enjoy the afternoon, and laugh all I can and laugh even if I can't. After all, we decide if we will laugh or not, and no one decides for us. 

I was thinking today about a time quite a while ago. I had gone out to a bar, and was enjoying a drink (back when I drank occasionally), as I sat there I started talking to the guy next to me. To be certain I was not in the best of moods, but I was trying to work my way out. As I talked to this guy, we started going back and forth with movie quotes. It was late and pretty much became a trivia contest, and soon a few more people joined in. Before it was done we had a small group laughing and enjoying. Me, I forgot why I had even started being sad, and made the decision to laugh and laugh hard!

So as the sun sets on another day, if you day is taking off, hold the horses, make sure the day is not going anywhere and instead find a way to have some fun, or at least get past any less that super thoughts, oh, and find a few good jokes to laugh at, there are always a few out there and I know you can find them. As you do, make sure to tell them to someone, or at least try, then maybe laugh a little, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and hey, it is all good

The sun sets on another day...

The sunset tonight was breathtaking. The waves intense, the colors nearly overwhelming as the clouds were bathed in glowing red shining fiery like a kaleidoscope. The reflections from the shore as the waves ebbed and flowed was equally as intense as the glassy surface over the sand desperately tried to grasp as the colors, only to have them washed away by yet another wave.

As I watched I got out of the truck and snapped a few pictures, then a few more, then looked to the row of cars and watched people look out their windows, and watch the sun set, peaceful and blissfully patient as the sun was slowly devoured by the western sky.

I considered, so I wrote this:

I sit in the chair waiting for the world, and chair that waits for me
I watch the world pass and wait for a day when there is more for me to see
I watch as the world passes beyond and make me feel so well
I watch and I wait and the world goes by to fast for me to tell

I look and I see and I feel all around and I see what is meant to see
I see the world feel and feel the world see and know it I meant for me
I laugh and I cry as I see time go by as I try hard to tell
That the world goes on and I feel for the world and hope it all does well

My question today is are you the one sitting in the chair watching, the one out there pressing the envelope, or the person wondering why I reverse the rhymes in a weird pattern in that short poem? If you are the one in the chair watching, I hope you find the courage to step out of the chair, or have someone step to you, and live today like never before. If you are the one living, that is super, keep living and loving and enjoying life, if you are the one who wants to see me well and tell, well, have fun with that, and enjoy the moments each and every day.

So as the sun sets on another day, why not look at the sunset, and live it, enjoy it, and hold it in your heart not just for today, but for every day, and tomorrow add another, and another until you are overwhelmed by beauty and have no choice to share it, it could be the difference we all need.

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

The sun sets on another day...

First, yes, I think I am lost in letters today, and after going through my car and finding a gift for someone I haven't seen in a while, I got stuck on the letter Q, and the quips that follow. After all in this quaftacular world where quips don't make me quackle, well, I just want to write for a second and run away from all the Qs. (By that way, yesterday I know the song was from "The Way We Were", but I was thinking of "Fame", where it was the audition song, I got 4 emails about that)

Funny, when you look for something you can almost surely find it.

Tonight I sat in a meeting until well after sunset. It did make me a little sad, but as I sat there I thought of all the wonderful sunsets I enjoyed, and as I left at dark I knew someone got to enjoy a sunset, and maybe took a lot of pictures. When I got online later I saw that one person took an amazing picture of the sunset, you can see it here.

To put it simply I found what I was looking for quickly and efficiently, and didn't have to search far, instead I looked at people I knew took pictures, and quickly got to several that were amazing. As I sit here tonight, I consider all of those and laugh a  little at how great it is to be able to find anything, if you look for it.

I think we all need to do that sometime. Whether it is happiness, a free moment, peace, or a dozen other things, we do have the opportunity to find it if we just look. I don't necessarily mean looking under the rug, but truly looking for something fun and exciting to enjoy and in the process finding it! We can all find something special if we just look!

So as the sun sets on another day, start your engines, and go out and look for something just so you can find it, in the process, enjoy that something, and maybe have a letter or two to have fun with along the way, try Q, or maybe S, they are both pretty cool!

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

The sun sets on another day...

As the sun sets it inspires feelings though us consistently and constantly. Giving us new hope, new moments, and a new and exciting ways to look at the world. There is a song engrained into my mind by "Fame" that calls to me today, part of the lyrics are:

Can it be that it was all so simple then
Or has time rewritten every line
And if we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me
Would we
Could we

Memories, like the corners of my mind
Misty watercolor memories
Of the way we were
Scattered pictures of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another
For the way we were

 I thought about a lot of things today, much of it about a tumultuous past, but even more about today, not tomorrow, today. If we spend a little more time thinking about today, maybe today has a chance of getting better. If we skip worrying about yesterday, if we skip worrying about tomorrow, perhaps we have a chance to make today better. It is nothing more than a thought, perhaps nothing more that a wish, but truly it should be action. We should take action to make today better, do that thing we thought we should do, spend that time we thought we should spend, and in the process, find a way to skip the memories and instead make some memories. 

So as the sun sets on another day, don't let time rewrite every line. Instead, rewrite your life to the best life ever. It is nothing more than a moment, and make those moments count. In the process, spread a little happiness too. It is well worht it, you might even have some fun along the way making some great memories.

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy every moment...
