The sun sets on another day…

Sunset was spectacular and filled with colors. The waves of Lake Michigan slapped the shores as the sun slowly descended in the western sky. it was an amazing sight.

I have access too many memories. I sometimes think memory is a fickle beast simply because on one hand I can remember such a detail from so long ago and on the other hand I sometimes don't pay much attention to what happened yesterday, and I can't easily recall it only to be able to recall it in massive detail six months later. Because of this strange way that my memory works I am sometimes haunted by old memories and sometimes remember strange things that others would set aside.

For example, I am haunted by the train set that was going around a doctor’s . tree when I was only 5. By that same token I remember very clearly the smell of the fresh spring air when I was two and about to tip over an iron pot on my leg. I can still smell the perfume from a girlfriend I had in college. I can still taste a milkshake I shared even before college and see the vibrant colors of the sunsets in northern Michigan when I was very young. Some of these memories make sense but some of them don't.

A lot of times I remember high school, and Lexington. As I arrived tonight I was lost in the memories, and all the special people I have known here. All the special times I have had in this city.

My question is what makes some memories so easy to remember and some more elusive? Why is it that some of the most amazing moments I have had in my life I have to think about well others I try hard to forget?

I find most people hang on to negative memories better and I have worked hard to hold on to both but I have found the memories that have the deepest meaning are sometimes the ones that are a little more difficult. Sometimes it can only be described as a stitch in the mind and perhaps something that I felt I should remember. No matter how you slice it I feel good knowing I can remember so much and I'm happy that my memories will not die easy.

So as the sun sets on another day let's consider for a moment how important memory is and even though we live each day with the promise of making today the best that it can be it's nice to be able to remember all the amazing days you've had. Hold on to the good memories and enjoy the moment , no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live hard...

The sun sets on another day…

It did today and will tomorrow. Each and every day the sun will set and each and every day the sun will rise. There are no choices for some of the time, half of the time, or 1/5 of time. Instead, it is a cycle that will happen until it happens no more and when that day comes everything will be no more.

The world itself happens. It doesn't just sit around and wait for people to decide when it's time for it to happen, it happens. If you miss a moment or set aside something you want to do it will not come again or will likely not come again. we don't get the opportunity to live in a perpetual Groundhog Day trying things over and over until we get them right, instead we have to make decisions and, in the process, push forward even in the face of adversity.

What is keeping you from doing that today? What is it that keeps you from being that person you should be? What is it that holds you from being you? It seems like an easy question but so many don't know how to answer it.

All I can suggest is that you be yourself 110% of the time because who else would you rather be? Find the path that works and in the process let's make that path one to live by, not a portion of the time, all the time.

So as the sun sets on another day, we have one whole day each day let's use it and make it the most powerful day we can , no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and push on…

The sun sets on another day…

The sky was dark and foreboding but still some colors escaped and lit up the twilight sky. I was impressed and enjoy the moment as much as I could.

People talk a lot about the wild side. Adventure and excitement seems to beckon to us all but often people are not willing to make that step or that walk to truly embrace the wild side. Some people think the wild side is a bad thing but perhaps the wild side isn't necessarily bad but instead embraces things we need to consider anyway. Sure , there are some wild things that some people shouldn't consider but there are as many that people need to get behind I realize that the wild side is a side worth walking.

So get out your motorcycle , learn a new hobby, try something new, or just become a part of each and every moment that you can and then take it one step further. After all you will never see a gravestone saying “they kept their couch warm well” but instead it will announce “they lived life” and perhaps a little bit more.

when I started 29,000 sunsets it was because there always seems to be something missing and a lot of people just aren't willing to reach out, grab it, and make it theirs. stop living for excuses start living life each day.

So as the sun sets on another day let's all go a little bit harder and a little bit further to walk the wild side and maybe sing a song as we do it. Make your day the most exciting it can be , no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love hand, and live wild…

The sun sets on another day…

Sunset was beautiful and I could count the instants of pure excitement galloping across the horizon. I am always excited to see the colors that play across the Sky.

I suppose you could guess that I am fascinated by words. All words have such important meanings associated with them with very few exceptions. Some words are overused by people who barely understands what they mean and other words are used improperly and people struggle to understand the depths of words in a conversation with a wacky wordsmith.

It is interesting and fanciful to consider the fantastic times that words create and the impressive imagery that can come from the thoughts of a skillful writer. We can be painted with a brush the change is who we are while shifting to another world for just a few brief hours in the depths of a book or movie. Take a moment and feel the excitement and love every moment that you can as the words flow.

Are you affected by words or just actions? do you see the words that bound across the pages of a book or just read them to understand. I would like to think the best books and movies are the ones that leave you thinking for weeks and months if not more after you read or watch. I would like to think that the books there open our minds are truly the books we should all be reading.

So as the sun sets on another day let's all pay attention to the words we use in the words we read. Words can open a life and amazing world if we let them. Open your mind and change the world, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy…
