The sun sets on another day...

We have all heard many times how still waters run deep, and turbulent waters as shallow, things are as clear as mud, and some water is not fit to drink. We even know you can lead a horse to water but you cannot make it serve alcohol at a bar, or something like that. My point is you sometimes have to go beneath the surface to get to the truth. (and find a horse that serves alcohol if you like that stuff)

To us the setting sun seems like a ball of light but if we really saw it, it is a serious bunch of multiplied to the nth degree actions and interactions that we doubtfully could comprehend. That being said, most people are the same. Never assume you know what is going on beneath the surface until all the cards are on the table and you can be sure. Sometimes the boisterous insulting little people are so self conscious that they likely should fade into a hole if they are confronted. Similarly the quiet easy going ones can be a seething force of nature under the hood.

Take your time, get to know people, don't burn bridges and instead listen. If they are out of line, sidestep and move on and remember that: "sticks and stones can break your bones, aimed with angry art. Words can sting like anything, but silence breaks the heart."

So as the sun sets upon another day, get to know people, and know them well like you know yourself, and if you don't know yourself, look in the mirror, introduce yourself, and enjoy the time you have with yourself. It too is good.

Sleep sweet, love life, and feel passion every day, it is worth it...

The sun sets on another day...

Hidden but not hidden by the clouds the sun worked its way out into our lives as it set on another fun and spectacular day! The hues were warm and bright, and in the end, there was no doubt that we were to be amazed by colors and light, and given peace.

It is amazing (and spectacular) when you meet someone and they are vibrant and alive.It is even more amazing when those people are engaged and try to make a good situation out of any situation. I implore anyone and everyone who is readying to take a moment and consider new people when you are out as they may well be the ones who open up new light and warmth to the world. There is a lot of talk about millennials today and how different they are but I met one today that was driven and passionate about the world and was engaged in conversation, not the pradle of semi-social technology.

So as the sun sets on another day, spend the time to know and meet people, and hope for the best, in the end we are social creatures and need to feel it. To the young man I met, keep pushing for the stars, and reaching those goals you know you can reach and striving for the ones that everyone says you cannot.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live it, truly live it...

The sun sets on another day...

I am sure I would not be popular if I refereed back to Bill Cosby as anyone role model as it sure looks like he was not a good boy, but he did have a comedy album a long time ago that asked the question "why is there air?" The answer, of course, was to blow up basketballs. 

Seems a little silly, but no more silly than the myriad of items people put out in the world to try to explain easy questions. So as you hear people say they can't do something because they are afraid, it may as well be to blow up basketballs. Or if they can't because it would be too easy, same answer, or too hard, same answer. A old acquaintance recently explained to me how good it was to be miserable because it would pay off in the end. Pbbbt. (that can be pronounced a few ways, I leave it to you to figure out)

The truth is, being miserable, living in fear, or falling prey to any of the baser emotions in our lives (not emojis) is just about one of the most ridiculous things that can be rationalized. Being afraid or miserable, just means you are afraid and miserable. Period.

So as the sun sets on another day, realize the world is a better place because you are in it, and make the world a better place by being a part of it, not that random lump on the wall. Oh, and when someone asks "why is there air?" simply say "So I can breath it and live my life like I am supposed to!"

Sleep sweet, catch a falling star, and put it in your pocket....

Today while searching for the perfect sunset I came across tracks in the sand that I did not recognize. Now, there were lots that I did recognize and as I sifted through the dog, bird Adidas, and barefoot human tracks I was mystified at the tack before me. After walking through the tracks and thinking about it, I agreed with another suggestion, perhaps it was a deer that had changed. As I studied it, I became certain it was exactly that. A deer track that had widened with the water and become a different sort of track.

In life we sometimes see the same. As we are paying attention to how someone is doing something, watching their tracks so to speak, suddenly the racks change and we have something completely different. (Not to be confused with Monty Python) Perhaps if we paid more attention at the beginning we would see the true nature of a person, but often all we have to go by is their "tracks" and those sometimes deceive us. How many people have ended up in a relationship with someone they thought was true, only to find the have been played, or been in a relationship they thought was passive, only to find the love of their life. How many "friends" have turned out to be more, and how many friends have turned out to be less?

No matter how you slice it if we had really paid attention to the tracks we would have found the truth before we walked in circles as I did tonight, looking for a source that may never have been there at all.

So as the sun sets on another day, let's take a moment and look at the tracks around us, and make sure the tracks we leave are true, or better yet, not leave any tracks at all.

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