I think if we took the time to consider the world we would take the time to consider a lot more then the slices of life we often look at.
My first published book was a book of poetry called “A Slice of Passion”. it contained a series of poems that I had written over a period of about 20 years at the time. This meant that many of the poems we're from me struggling to understand life at a relatively young age.
As I read through many of these poems recently I realized that I could see myself grow through my writing and through my understanding of the complexities of people. My life have been driven by passion since a very young age. People who know me usually see that. It is not that I focused passion on one thing or another but that I focused passion on a considerable number of things and sometimes seem well over the top to many people.
I have only met a few people that have some concept of what I feel. What is interesting is I saw in each of them the same thing that I feel but each one of them broke my heart in one way or another. Perhaps unbridled passion cannot coexist. Perish the thought. I would like to think that somewhere out there that there are two people with the virtually unlimited passion that I have they have found each other and in the process they have found a way to ignite passion beyond passion. At least I'll keep thinking that.
No matter how I look at it I know that my passion is what pushes me to do more, read more, love more , be more, do more, and to put it quite simply sometimes makes me larger than life. for that matter I am larger than life simply because I'm a giant as well. Funny isn't it? How that sometimes works?
I'm curious about you. Are there things that you feel passionate about? Passion being a near uncontrollable emotion? Are there things in life that you consider to be passionately important? Do you apply passion beyond the relationship between people? Are you passionate?
So as the sun sets on another day, consider all these questions and remember that I'll keep thinking that unbridled passion can exist, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and don't let go…
The sun sets on another day ...
Sunset was full of clouds and this little fluffy thing called snow. I feel like I have been shoveling for quite some time and driving my poor little tractor to the brink of brinkdom.
As I sat watching the snowfall, I thought about the marvelous knowledge that all of the snowflakes were different. It might be weird but then I thought about how unique everything was if you looked at it the right way. Then I remembered some experiments that we had done in high school and college revolving around solutions. Solutions were fun most of the time just because as you experimented with them you realized there was a lot going on beneath the surface. Well beneath the surface of the liquid.
There's always something unique in everything we do, but if we think about it there's always something else mixed in. I get a kick out of that too . Do you know I might get a kick out of just about everything if I sat down and thought about it simply because everything is so awesome. Still the idea that everything is a solution of some sort, meaning a bunch of stuff blended together with water, is pretty cool. As I sat thinking about the snow it made me feel good to go down this path.
So as the sun sets on another day, nothing is as black and white as you think. Except maybe snow and road dirt. everything else is some type of solution, well maybe. just take your time and realize black and white isn't is cool as 1000 Shades of Grey.
Sleep sweet, love life, and have a super eve…

If you haven't been paying attention there is a book festival going on right now . It's a virtual book festival hosted by Pages Promotions and the books or being read by the authors without the covers or titles. The actual festival is a lot of fun and I've had fun in this few days so far being a little silly and trying to make people laugh.
Tonight's special bit of fun was about horror. Personally, I'm a huge anti fan. I absolutely love horror but have read so much and seeing so many movies that I have become desensitized to it so as I watch it or read it, it is not so much for the horror as for trying to enjoy something new and exciting or a remarkable new twist. The problem is simple, there aren't a lot of new twists. I will say that the indie horror readers tonight were very interesting and one of them I have his book and it has been a unique read.
Have you ever come up with something that you are an anti fan? Something that you really like but don't expect to as much as you used to? Is there a point where things just become fun and don't necessarily give the expected result? Do you groan at comedy or laugh at horror? Think about it , I did tonight as I enjoyed the readers.
So as the sun sets on another day, take a moment and read a book. Better yet read an indie book and enjoy the marvelous world of your imagination, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and keep reading…
The sun sets on another day...
I was thinking today about the meaning of a drink. Several people had made statements to me that we should all be drinking today. seeing as I am not a big drinker I don't think that will happen but I did think about the name Cutty Sark and in the process had to check my facts on its meaning.
I had always thought the name meant “short skirt” but in actuality it comes from two words that mean something along the lines of “short dress” or “short shirt”. This is of course close but it's not exactly what I had always been told. I read the entire legend. I think everybody should look it up and get a kick out of how intricate tales like this were woven. I pause here for a second and let you look it up or don't and look it up later .
What is that thing that makes sense to you from a story but doesn't necessarily make sense to other people until they know the story? Is there a name we were given or nickname that doesn't make sense unless you know a little more? Think about it and while you do have a drink of whiskey it might be good.
So as the sun sets on another day each day is a legend in its own way. Each day tells a story and if you pay attention each day is a story being told to you. Pay attention , be aware, and have a super night no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and don't drink too much…
