The sun sets on another day…
Sunset was crisp and hazy, a series of contradictions within itself. Sunset made me laugh, smile, and it was at least, sunset.
I don’t use the word splendid very often, mostly because it is a word that has seemed to have lost its luster. Splendid is defined as magnificent, awesome, stupendous etc etc, and it never seemed to have that much luster in the words I have read over the years. Today I thought about that word as I passed through the day and a series of good events that made me smile. Now, I wish every day was splendid, but every day is at least great. Splendid seems to want to pack more of a punch, but it doesn’t as much because it is not used.
Let’s change that. On this splendid day I took a splendid walk and had a splendid time with splendid animals and people. I was saddened by the closing of the ice cream shop but had splendid ice cream there and enjoyed the splendid show Cobra Kai for a few. In the end I wrote and enjoyed the splendid air washing across the day, cooling all things in sight.
Well, it kinda works. I do have a point. I just want to say to everyone, have a splendid day.
So as the sun sets on another day, I wrote a much longer passage that turned into a rant and went a little wild, so I stopped, and I think it is easier sometimes to focus, use the right words, and have a good day. I hope you do, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and be splendid…
