The sun sets on another day...

As I drove today I watched the sun set (Probably not the safest thing to do while driving, but I was careful.) As the sun set the thin bank of clouds was illuminated by a plethora of colors that seemed to be pulled from every known warm palette and the sky shun like an erupting volcano.

I was both in awe and frustrated by this turn of events as I expected a minimal sunset, and was once again surprised when the super beautiful jack in the box sunset jumped out upon us all and said "nya nya" (Well it was a rough translation).  I of course had no way to stop and safely get a picture, so I committed it to memory to share.

It is the same in life sometimes. Often we are deceived into thinking things are bad, and in the end life can give us a "Nya Nya" and surprise us with something amazing. This night I was amazed positively, and if you watch correctly, there really is no other outcome. As long as we are alive, and can strive for more the layers of clouds will never keep us down. We can be the ones that rise above and say "Nya Nya" and prove to the world we are a positive force in whatever we do. 

So as the sun sets on another day, consider that what you may think of as a negative may turn out to be something different and maybe sometimes be a positive paintbrush to your life. 

Sleep sweet, love life, and paint the wind if it makes the world a better place...

The sun sets on another day...

The misty breeze blows upon us all and gives us a breath of sweet air. Crisp and cool the breath is at the core of our lives, and makes us whole as we feel our lungs inflate with the sweetness. The pungent Lilac adds it's flavor to our lives and gives us pause to consider how flavorful life is, and how much we should appreciate each and every day, and as we exhale, the worries of the time are released, and hopefully will no longer be on our thoughts, haunting us with their barbed innuendo.

Wouldn't it be nice if every breath we took was an adventure? That every inhale showed us something amazing and every exhale made us feel complete and took the stress from us? Perhaps it is that way, perhaps we are the problem and just don't let it be that way. I remember the movie "Karate Kid II" where the sensei told Daniel to consider the center of life, breathing, when life was out of balance. Maybe it is that simple, when everything is out of balance, maybe we just need to breathe. 

So as the sun sets on another day, breathe, enjoy the moment, and let a little stress out, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, breathe, and love breathing, you pretty much need to do it...

The sun sets on another day...

I watched tonight as the sailboat glided through the sunset and remembered an episode of Star Trek I saw a long long time ago. In it a computer was replacing man, and Kirk was explaining the passion of being a sailor and a captain when he said:

"20th-century Earth. "All I... ask is a tall ship, and a star to steer her by." You... you could feel the wind at your back in those days. The sounds of the sea beneath you. And... even if you take away the wind and the... water, it's still the same. The ship is yours. You can feel her. And the stars are still there, "

Too often we let technology get in the way of our passion, our lives, and even the depths of our souls. Somewhere in the grand scope of life there are so many things that so many found to be important that they stepped aside and forgot the importance of passion and beauty, or did they?

As I took this picture tonight being passed by cars on a medium traveled street, and as the colors passed upon us I watched as cars slowed, and shared a moment with me, then, as the picture below happened a car pulled over and just watched, no cell phone, no selfie in the background, they just enjoyed. As I dropped the camera, and breathed in the last moments of today, they smiled, oblivious to me for a moment, then looked over and smiled at me, then drove on.

There is hope.

So as the sun sets on another day, consider every moment an adventure, and don't give up on technology, but instead, balance it with you and occasionally, stop to see the sunset with me.

Sleep sweet, love life, and remember love is always at the core of who we are, no matter what...

The sun sets on another day...

On this day many years ago a lot of good things happened, and a lot of really bad things happened. Hard to know which mean more in the grand scope of things. If you consider that we would not have known the quote "To me, every hour of the day and night is an unspeakably perfect miracle" (Walt Whitman) Nor would we have seen Big Ben go into operation. There are so many things that happen each and every moment that are awe inspiring and amazing we tend to overlook them. There are so many opportunities to learn, that today, lets take a moment and absorb a few.

So as the sun sets on another day realize every day is special, and every moment an opportunity to be more and learn more, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, enjoy your moments, and love life, more then ever....
