The sun sets on another day…
Funny how things go through your mind. Scary how the clouds can creep up on you, but amazing when they do and the sun shines through.
For those of you who were not even close to where I am, tonight’s sunset was somewhere between wow, and awe inspiring. As the clouds closed in and were broken on the horizon the sun broke free and made the entire sky light up like fiery cotton balls doused with napalm. The flickering lights and uneven sun made them appear to dance in the sky, and in the end as the sun set I got to see another phantom sunset, where the sun set and was projected on the clouds as though another sun was setting. All this, and my camera sat in its bag at home, alone without me.
I try hard to get across sometimes that the clouds are sometimes a good thing, that rain is not as bad as you think, that winter is like summer only different, and that you can’t feel how good the good is without a little bad. Sometimes people agree, sometimes people think I am a little off. If you think about it though, it is true, each day if it is good, we know good from the bad days we have had, and if it is bad, we know it is bad because it is not like the good days. In the end, at least in my opinion, the good far outweigh the bad.
It just makes sense. How can you know that a moment is great without knowing what is not, how can you know the depths of anything.
Some days I just want to smile because I feel good about the world. some days, I have to fight above what is given to me. Each day is a gift so I will do it, no matter what.
So as the sun sets on another day, without the clouds you don’t get the most beautiful sunsets, and according to science, without a little pollution and silliness in the sky, you don’t get the striking colors that we sometimes see. I know the world is not perfect, but I don’t think I want it to be, instead I would rather the world be a little imperfect, so I can have good and bad, and see all the beauty in between.
Sleep sweet, love to the moon and back, and enjoy your night…
