Reading between the lines…

The sun sets on another day…

Sunset was once again dark and cloudy but I again felt happy at the proposition of the light show going on far above me.

A lot of people talk about reading between the lines. It’s an old expression born out of The possibility of invisible ink between printed word on pages sent to others. The meaning is clear if you think about that but today reading between the lines is more about the implied and the ephemeral and those things that you don’t have written down. It is about that little bit extra that you weren’t expecting that was being said even though it wasn’t really there.

I know that sounds horribly confusing, but it makes sense if you think about it. A great many people in their conversations with little dramatic statements like “or else” or “you know” and those things imply far more than they say.  In fact if you don’t read between the lines anymore a lot of times you can’t even find out what’s going on simply because there is more unsaid than is said. who cares right?

Well I’m pointing this out today because I try to be relatively direct. I write each day and try to keep everything up to date so that each day there’s something new to read. Last week I had to repair PHP before I could post this last batch But usually I try to post and try to show at least one person something.

When I started 29,000 sunsets it was to help give my kids a reference and other people a place that they could go to see a little paragraph that might be uplifting. Now , several million hits later, I write for the fun of it but pretty much to do the same thing. My point is that if you think anything I write is about you please read between the lines and realize it’s probably about my kids or about some of you that are close to me and sometimes something that someone has written to me or sent into me. Still if you ask me I’ll tell you if it’s about you or if it’s not about you. I have to admit did some of my short stories were inspired by people who had inspired me or deflated me. Either way my purpose was to think through an issue or create a unique world based on one of my experiences. Here I just want people to see beyond.

So as the sun sets on another day I hope you read between the lines and realize I’m just trying to make everybody’s day a little better and along the way have a little fun, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and it’s all you…
