The sun sets on another day...

...and I guarantee it is going to rise in the morning or we won't be here to see it!

Actually, there are a few things you can be sure of in life, death, taxes, more taxes, mosquitos, hard biscuits, and a host of others that are pretty sure. There are some that are more sure than that, like the sun rising and setting each day.Everything else, with a few exceptions, may be pretty much a crap shoot. After all, how can we really be sure of anything except that anything is unsure, right?

Perhaps there is something that some of us can be sure about, perhaps passion is a sure thing, if you find the right person to share it with. Perhaps passion is one of the few sure things we have in life. Passion for life and the will to live is as big of a passion as the passion everyone considers for each other. The point is, passion is a driving force to make us move forward, and should be a driving force each day and each moment of your life. Hopefully you find that person who feels the same level of passion you feel, and between you, you change the world.

So as the sun sets on another day, embrace the passion you feel and know it is real and something that you should hold on to each and every day. Once you have that passion, don't let go, so it will always be with you.

Sleep sweet, love life, and wish upon a star, your wish may come true....

The sun sets on another day...

Ever consider a moment in time? Like let's say the moment of the perfect picture of the perfect sunset that can be perfect each and every day. Ever stop to consider how any of those moments there are in life? How precious those moments are, and (this is important) how much control we have of the moment? We have far more control than we think. Then again, we may have far less control than we think. There are those in the world that believe it is preordained and part of a divine plan, but the divine plan includes free will, so how can there be a divine plan? There are those that think that everything in life is chance, but so much seems to happen for a reason, how can that be?

I do not pretend to have all the answers, but I have a few. I do not pretend to know all the questions, but I keep coming up with them. I know without a doubt, that we are the sum of a mass of moments that made us who we are, and those moments continue to make us each day. More, we define our moments AND they define us until we are that sum of moments that we have become.

This is not a destination, this is a journey and we will set goals along the way and hope we can shape the moments and the moments shape us until we become who we want to be. (Or at least I hope so)

This week I have met one such goal. My first novel with final proofs on the way. Sometimes next week I will open a box with 5 brand new books to review and perhaps start a journey that began with an idea, an idea spawned from a moment, a moment that defined me, and a moment I took control of, and defined.

So as the sun sets on another day, seize the moment (That would be carpe momentum, though i prefer carpe carpum, sieze the fish) live your moments to their fullest, and try to make life something more for you, and for those who are with you. Hold on to passion, and make your life something more.

Sleep sweet, enjoy the moments, and live a full life, no matter what....

The sun sets on another day...

...or so we think. As I sit working on an issue that I have kept alive for a long time, I wonder how we see the permanence of the sun and how it will be at the end of it's life. Funny how we consider so many things as forever, and perhaps only a few really are forever. Perhaps we should consider everything as finite. After all, if we have 29,000 sunsets or so, how many items have an order of magnitude more, or less. 

Perhaps a computer will not live forever, but maybe we should consider that love can live forever, and in the process, love can take us further  than we have ever been before. Perhaps passion should be on the list of forever, as who cannot feel the passion of Melville or Bach. 

So as the sun sets on another day, let's consider that we should look for forever, in everything we do.

Sleep sweet, love life, find a way, each and every day, and love as often as your heart allows....

The sun sets on another day....

...and it was successful.

Have you ever considered how the world would be if the sun was not successful in its climb from sunrise to sunset. Ick, that would be awful.

For us there is not always a clear path to success and instead we have to find our way with a little more difficultly. Sometimes it is our fault, sometimes it is just that change is not so easy for some people, and sometimes, well sometimes we just fail. Winston Churchill once said, "Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm" and this is our salvation. Sometimes we just need to keep failing, knowing there is success in there somewhere, even if it hurts, even if it is not good, we need to strive forward and succeed. I had a comic framed on my wall for some time. An issue of an old comic "X-Men" where one of the antagonists was called out "Get up, and I will knock you down again" while the antagonist simply replied: "You still do not get it, knock me down 100 times and I will rise the 101st as strong and as fresh as ever."

It is in that vein, even from a bad guy, that we must react and make the world our place to succeed, knowing we may fall, but nothing will get us down, and in the end, we will be more than ever as we will truly be able to say we worked for our success, no matter what.

So as the sun sets on another day, live life like you cannot fail, and when you do, allow yourself to learn and fail again, for eventually you will succeed...

Sleep sweet, love as you can, and live for the moment that you will have success...
