The sun sets on another day…
Sunset was again stunning. The sky was filled with color, and the people sat in their cars and watched the sun fall behind the clouds, laughing, smiling, crying and more all the time.
I live in the country. Not far from the city, but not on the beaten path either. The temperatures have been cool this year, perhaps cold until a few weeks ago. Now the area is green, luch, and continues to bloom. This week the ferns rose, and it is a sight to see.
The ferns are between 2 and 3 feet tall, some taller, and blanket the forest as far as you can see. A few weeks ago there were fallen trees, limbs, sticks and more, but now there is a thickening blanket of green just above the ground, and that blanket does a few fun things. First, it makes the forest look uniform. Every where is beautiful, if you like ferns. Second it keeps moisture in the ground, and things grow, boy do they grow, third it hides small animals. the area is full of hawks, owls, eagles and more, and the squirrels and chipmunk are now beneath the canopy. Last, silence abounds. The ferns absorb a lot of the sound. What was quiet in winder is as quiet now save for frogs, toads and crickets, and even they are quieter because of the canopy.
Who cares, right? Well, my weird point is as I watched the ferns I thought of all the people who have walls up, and how those walls tend to do the same. They hide us, make us look better, and quiet the things rolling around about us simply because they are a cover. It looks good and all, but eventually, it all uncovers again and you will have to clean it up. That is the bad thing about ferns, they are seasonal.
Something to consider at least.
So as the sun sets on another day, it would be better if the ground were clear under the ferns. It would be better if we didn’t need our walls to hide who we were. Maybe we need to clear out our selves and use the cover just as decoration, and make our life as real as it can be. After all, if we only have 29000 sunsets, maybe our best time would be used enjoying life, not covering it up, but instead making it beautiful. Make your life full of beauty, and enjoy the sunset, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love always, and be happy all you can…
