Together…

The sun sets on another day…

The sunset was striking and amazing today. Somewhere between crisp and just plain over the top. As I watched the sun set from a distance I was astounded by how many people might be watching it with me from anywhere, from everywhere.

I thought a lot today about people and the past. Those people you wonder about from time to time that are not as big a part of your life or who have left your life for a different path. There was an animated movie a long time ago that stated simply “it helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star.” That makes sense if you feel it, but I like the even more direct thought that if you remember someone, you are together with them. Nifty huh? If you remember someone you are together.

It can be a hard lesson. Together is something we want, we crave, we want more of always, but if we consider remembering people with the positives and not the negatives, maybe, just maybe, we are together with them for a little while. Together is a good place to be.

So as the sun sets on another day, it is not fair having people go in and out of our life. Maybe we can go a little further and understand that remembering the positives about someone keeps them alive. Perhaps if our children, and our children’s children remember us, well, maybe it is more than just being together, perhaps it is even a small slice of immortality. A good though, a good thing to think about. As I consider some people I have not seen in too long, I hope that in some special way, we are together if on for a moment.

Sleep sweet, love life, and wish upon a star…
