Sky

Last evenings sunset proved to be one of the prettiest I have seen in a really long time. It bid me to stop and take notice, am thankful I did.

“The grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.” John Muir

“COMPASSION IS THE WISH FOR ANOTHER HUMAN BEING TO BE FREE FROM SUFFERING, LOVE IS WANTING THEM TO HAVE HAPPINESS” – Dali Lama

“Frodo: I can’t do this, Sam.
Sam: I know. It’s all wrong. By rights we shouldn’t even be here. But we are. It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.
Frodo: What are we holding onto, Sam?
Sam: That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo… and it’s worth fighting for.”

JRR Tolkien

Some days it’s just a deep breath and a good look at the sky.

The only limits are the one’s you set before you. When all possibilities of doubt and disbelief deteriorate, a new definition of what’s possible arises.
