The sun sets on another day…
Wow, icebergs and cloudy skies can make for an interesting picture, but I sure don’t want to be swimming right now. It might be a good and pretty picture, but not a good and pretty situation.
Funny how that works.
Sometimes the pictures that look the most amazing, simply are not. That beautiful happy place you see in front of you may turn out to be a serious nightmare, or maybe a baby nightmare. Like the fantastic sunset with the edge of an iceberg in view, a beauty can sometimes be treacherous.
Take the rose. A rose by any other name, may smell as sweet, but if you don’t take the thorns off of it, it will smart when you pick it up. It is up to us to see things as they really are, and make the best of them. So, if a rose smells sweet, enjoy it, but don’t pick it. If a scene looks awesome, enjoy it, but remember you may not want to live there. After all, an erupting volcano is super awesome, but a log cabin there may have a little trouble.
So as the sun sets on another day, well, beauty is only skin deep, but it is still beautiful, so just make life as happy as you can, and take a few pretty pictures to enjoy each and every moment, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and be happy with all you can…
