Beautiful Day in Paradise

 

Life is Long and Time is Short

(VIRAL VIDEOS: U2 and Coldplay)

A star falls from the sky and into your hands.

Then it seeps through your veins and swims inside your blood and becomes every part of you.

And then one day, far from now, you will have to put it back into the sky– and that will be the most painful thing you’ll ever have to do.

But for now, what’s yours is yours.  Whether it’s up in the sky or here in your hands, it’s real.

You’ve got this life and while you’ve got it, treat it well and gently.

Don’t think too much about making life better for those who don’t care.  Simply take what is good and make it better.  Make your life the best, for yourself and those who love you.

Kiss like you only have one moment.  Hold someone’s hand like you will never see them again.  Look into a person’s eyes like they’re the last person you’ll ever see; watch your children sleeping like there’s no time left.

Every rose loses its bloom.  When the time comes that we become that star again, a drop returning into the vast ocean, you will look at yourself and see you were suddenly more beautiful than you ever were before.

    Someone needed to say that to me when I was ten years old. No truer words were ever spoken.

  2. Have any objections about me publishing this on twitter?

      Thank you for asking. Of course not, please go right ahead and share the love! We appreciate our articles going out to others, shared and forwarded, and kept alive by folks like you.

      And comments, suggestions, and more friends and followers on Twitter and Facebook always boosts our volunteer morale. We’ve seen our readership rise over the years despite the fact that the two local Big Dogs on the Block– the North Coast Journal and Lost Coast Outpost– jointly choose to blacklist us off their roster of blogs denying Humboldt County the very notion that the Humboldt Sentinel even exists, although we’ve been up and running daily for 9 years on a shoestring budget and with a high degree of excellence standing up for independent media.

      Local media censorship is alive and well here in Humboldt if you didn’t know it, so we appreciate you spreading the word and sharing our work. Thanks.

    “Local media censorship is alive and well here in Humboldt if you didn’t know it, so we appreciate you spreading the word and sharing our work. Thanks”

    And that’s why I support you. The reason “censorship is alive and well” is directly attributed to Hank Sims. Your so-called “Big Dog Blogs” only attract a certain kind of clientele, not the kind of people, by and large, I want tracking their garbage into my home. Keep up the good work.

    Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. Inspiring stuff and made my dull day better.
