The sun sets on another day…
The last week has been full of rain and mist and other things, and the skies were full of amazement. No matter how many times the sun rose and set I was not sure how the next moment would be. It made me smile.
There is a movie called Parenthood that I refer to from time to time. In the movie there is a portion that focuses on how life rolls forward and on how we should enjoy the ride. As I think about how some people go round and round and others or thrown about in random manners, I still believe I would rather have the unpredictable life then something that I knew was going to happen.
Today as my workday ended, I was not sure if there would be a sunset that I could take a picture of. I considered it well and a friend and I went out to the beach as the sky opened wide and gave it beauty to the world. I was very impressed with the sheer magnitude of beauty and as the sun finally closed over the west, I could do nothing but feel at peace finally for a moment.
Even when you love the sheer chaos of a spectacular ride occasionally you need a little peace. I found it and closed my eyes as I took a picture and enjoyed the sound of the waves gently lapping against the beach.
If you can, enjoy the ride. If you can’t, enjoy the ride anyway. And as you do so find a little slice of peace and take a deep breath. It will be worth it.
So as the sun sets on another day, it was a fantastic day and I enjoyed it very much. Find your way to amazement and keep being you every day, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and that sound is deafening…
