The sun sets on another day…
I watched the sunset scroll across the sky and slowly disappear in the western sky. I was fascinated by a cloud in between but as the sun crossed the cloud the sky was lit up again and beauty was all around me.
I like going to events because I get to interact with people. Sometimes that’s a good thing and sometimes it’s not. I enjoy learning about others and in doing so usually learn something about myself. Today was amazing.
I was at an author event at Barnes & Noble today and I am not the type of person to sit behind the table and wait for people to come talk to me. Instead I found myself wandering between authors and readers and enjoying the conversation and learning more about the world around me.
It’s funny, even if you think you know everything people can astound you. Even if you think you know how they feel you can suddenly be lost in a moment or more. Today was one of those days.
I found myself interacting with a newer author who wrote an autobiography about their father. The book is a lot of fun and he is excited and happy about all the he is doing. I also talked to a woman who wanted to write a book and she told me a very heartening story where she was compelled to move while sitting in a diner and after she did the spot she had said in was destroyed. I talked to a man of faith who was positive yet reserved and I would love to see him interact with others as I’m sure that I drove him quite crazy. All these and many more.
My point is that no matter how much I think I know I know nothing. No matter how positive I can be about the world I can’t be positive about it all. This is really hard for some people to believe.
Take a moment inside yourself and consider everything around you. Are you sure? I’m not asking any particular question I am just asking are you sure. If you are, well reconsider.
So as the sun sets on another day, today was an amazing day. Not because I made some money selling books or enjoyed giving out nearly a hundred cards to people who might be interested in my books, but instead because I enjoyed the people around me and had a good time interacting. It’s awesome to interact with people. I hope you find your day just as fun all the time, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and good to meet you…
