The sun sets on another day...

Today the rain fell, and fell, and fell some more. Somewhere the sun set, and I am sure it was glorious, but from my perspective there was just a change in the clouds, and a few less drops of rain. In the end, I knew it was there and believed it was beautiful.

Often in life we are not sure of everything but we have to believe one way or another. It is easy to see the world through one telescopic tunnel visioned view, but hard sometimes to believe the things you cannot see. I have been as guilty of this as anyone else and it is only as I have grown old (yes I am old) that I can make the jump believing some things without proof. the world is quite complex, but sometimes that little thing called faith can take you a long way, and sometimes we just need to believe for the sake of believing. It will help you get through today, and not worry about yesterday or tomorrow so much. Take a second and think about that. (I won't say I'll wait, because I am tired of those memes)

So as the sun sets on another day, today was a beautiful sunset somewhere. No, I did nto see it, but I have faith and you should as well. Have faith in the world, have faith in yourself, and have faith in life, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy the night...

The sun sets on another day...

I considered calling this post intersecting circles. I consider a lot of things. Today was a day when the sunset was early and the clouds were earlier. It made me thing of the chords that measure intersecting circles in life as the clouds above swirled above.

People are interesting all over. They come and go into our lives like leaves on a tree, some hold fast, some fall off and are gone, and some just stick around forever. (Well, on pine trees they do) It is amazing to me to consider the number of people who have come in and out of my life over the years, the number that have touched me in some way, and the number I have felt were important in my life. Our lives were a series of circles, and we intersected at times making us better people, and rarely worse.

No matter how you approach those amazing concentric circles, we always have to remember that good or bad, we learn from everyone we meet. That makes it good! We need to realize that people build up their circles with people that are like minded or that appeal to them in some way, and people remove from their circles, well, for lots of reasons. We must hold on to the good as it is easy to feel the bad close in on us, and we must find a way each and every day to make our chords not let go those people who are meaningful in our lives.

I am not perfect. I have watched people walk in and out of my life. I have fought hard for some, not hard enough for others. In the end I sometimes trusted too little, and sometimes trusted too much but always had what I felt were good intentions. I hope each of you had the best intentions in the world as you experienced the amazing people in your life.

So as the sun sets on another day, remember how important you are, and how special other people are, and find a way to be happy each day, no matter what.

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

The sun sets on another day...

Sunset is striking, amazing, awe inspiring, it takes your breath away, and opens your mind to a new day, or it doesn't. 

Oh no, that could be negative, but it truly is not. We are bound each day by our perceptions of life, and as we are bound our perspectives build our realities. No, it is not a bad thing, a good thing, or even a thing, it is what we our and by definition, our reality binds us to our how we handle nearly everything in life. (Well, that is my opinion, or if you take the line from Blade, "That's what Frost says...")

Even if we don't agree, we cannot escape the simple fact that there are those who flock to beauty, and those who overlook it. Why? Beauty is everywhere, passion is everywhere, we are surrounded by it, bound by it, and we can find beauty in some things that we cannot fathom as beautiful, and suddenly whoomp there it is. (and we can sing the song compliments of Tag Team)

So whats my point, yes, I do have a point and it is not just on the top of my head. My point is sometimes people do not see eye to eye, and in the process they forget that they have no way of seeing eye to eye.

Too complicated, well, consider old school math, not the new silliness that is more like chismbop than real mathematics. If you have fractions like 2/3 and 3/5 you have to find the lowest common denominator that both have in common before you can add them together. So to do we have to find some common ground before we can agree on beauty. Otherwise two people can wander around each other and never truly understand what the other is seeing.  If I saw someone as a princess, they may well see me as a frog, and vice versa until we find some common ground, then we could realize we were both frogs and that would be that. Well, it all sounds good.

So as the sun sets on another day and I consider this rather interesting post, remember your reality may not line up with anyone else's. Your love for someone does not mean they love you, or at least not in the same way. Your vision of a wall does not mean anyone else sees the wall as you do, only that you call it wall together. Find a common denominator, and build on it, then we can see the world at least a little more closely, and in the process enjoy the sunset, no matter what.

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

The sun sets on another day...

As the sun set I went to a new place to fly the drone and found that flying the drone near a whole lot of metal poles is not the best idea. They played with the GPS and in the end, it ended up upside down. Yes yes, I will do it differently next time and not be near all the poles. For now, it made for some good pictures!

Every once in a while in life, life just seems upside down as well. There are so many things going on at once that we often don't know which way is up, or which way we should turn. It is in those days we need people the most, they can help us find out center, and help us find a way back to right side up. People can show you a way, and even if they show you the wrong way, they can show you a way to be better through their err.

Funny thought huh? Getting better through someone else's errors. 

So as the sun sets on another day, look up, look down, know where you are, and take a moment and get your bearings. People are here to help if you let them, even if they are not, find your center, find your best, and make it even better. In the end, you can be the best you ever every day if you just let yourself. Do it, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, smile, and make life grand...ddd
