Echos…

The sun sets on another day…

As the sun sets the colors light the night sky and cloud after cloud is filled with light,more or less. The light slowly dissipates and there is echo after echo until finally it is no more.

As I watched the sunset tonight and yet another senior picture photographer I was amazed at how the light played tricks. It ebbed and flowed back and forth until there was beauty across the sky. As I shared the portrait with a friend and many others I considered how we too are echos.

What we say, what we do, and how we approach the world leaves a mark. Depending on what we do we create a small or a large mark on all that we are, and depending on our children, we may have an even bigger mark. Some people will echo for most of time, some will only echo a short time, but we have a choice on how we want to be, and the more we do, the stronger our possibilities.

I would like to think I try to make a mark each day. It may not be perfect, but I hope I can make a few people happy, and a few more at least content.

Well, maybe.

So as the sun sets on another day, make a good mark. Leave happiness where you go, and let there be an echo of you in all the people you meet, no matter what.
