The sun sets on another day...

As we wander through life we sometimes have to consider old words that will always make sense. Hence I give you the following quote:

There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

I would add to this famous set of words, "and there is always a time to live". I may also add "there is a time for the sun to rise, and for the sun to set" since it is one of my passions. In the end my purpose today is easy. There is truly a time for everything and today should be the time for us all to find our way, to be happy, and to make a difference in life, no matter what.

So as the sun sets on another day, let's take a moment and enjoy our time, live for our time, and make our days the best ever.

Sleep sweet, love, and love some more....

The sun sets on another day...

The sun seemed to wane tonight as the adults and children alike watched another day pass, and knew tomorrow started school in so many places. I listened well as I waited for an Ice Cream and the stories flew of children not being ready, of parents being overly ready, and of a myriad of cleanup items. The boats being closed for the season, cleanup of yards and other items flew in the air like the wispy breeze. It is comforting to know that summer actually ends far later in the month, but tomorrow will be the start of fall for students in this area at least, and I can only hope they get to enjoy the days and nights even more as friendships rekindle and new friendships begin.

So as the sun sets on another day, don't give up on summer just yet, and enjoy the sunset anyway, no matter what...

The sun sets on another day...

Each day can be an adventure if you want it to be. Today while at the top of the Silver Lake Lighthouse I looked down on the world, and smiled. The crisp and clear waters below called and no, I did not put on a squirrel suit and jump, instead I walked out to the beach and enjoyed myself after feeling like I was on top of the world, because maybe I was.

So as the sun sets on another day, enjoy the time and the moment, and take advantage of those moments, no matter what...

Sleep sweet, love life, and lay in the sun once in a while and watch it as it sets, then enjoy the moment some more...

The sun sets on another day...

For several years I have been toying with the idea of hidden beauty. Those places we tend to not see as beautiful and if we pay attention, there is beauty there. Tonight the sunset was awesome from the restaurant I had dinner at, but I watched and there were not the throngs of people waiting to see it like there usually are at the beach, just people coming and going, and the beauty passing them by. The point is, if you look for it, beauty is everywhere. I have an awesome friend who take a picture every day as well, and in doing so finds the most amazing picture sin the most un-amazing places quite often because he looks for beauty everywhere. I think we all should do the same, and pay attention to beauty no matter when we are at.

So as the sun sets on another day, pay attention to beauty, it is around you everywhere and try not to miss a sunset or a sunrise wherever you may be. (It is always worth it in my opinion.)

Sleep sweet, love life, and look for hidden beauty everywhere, no matter what...
