It's all about the Sunsets

Sunset from the Mooring
My friend Jeff always tells me "it's all about the sunsets".

Life is rushing by lately. I haven’t been able to do, or enjoy the things that are important to me.
The year end crunch is starting sooner than usual.
It always seems to be windy when I’m working. And I always seem to be injured when it’s going off.

Life has me pretty stressed right now. I’m not built to deal with stress: I barely sleep, and only with the help of sleeping pills.
I seem to be working all the time. And it always seems to be windy and warm when I'm at work.
I am missing the things I want to do; so I can pay the bills for things I don't need.
I missed Monday’s meeting with the State. Instead; I was here at work dealing with those things that will seem unimportant on my death bed.

I don't even have time for my family. When you don't come home from work till 7:30, then fall asleep on the couch at 8:00; that's not much of a family life. I will not even have the time to make the trek  to Chatham to see my Parents for Thanksgiving this year.

This is the time of year I should be going to the gym regularly, to rehab the damage I do to my aging body.  I can’t slack off on that. Besides, it's kinda' hard to do an after work session in the dark, so I should actually  have the time for rehab now.  But I'm not even doing that. Instead I'm up at 4:00 doing this.

Something has got to give. I'm just too close to the edge. I can’t keep up this schedule much longer...

So while we go through this stressful time of year. I thought I'd share a few of the sunsets. The Camera phone doesn't do the greatest job; But it is enough. Some are from a sail I had the other night with LL; some from my night with Phil, and the others just various nights the last few months.

Hey Carter!
I guess no matter what you do for a living, it can make you lose perspective.
Great to hear from you. And thanks for visiting.
