                           *I took this photo of a sunset!*

A lot of the time, years just go by without really anyone noticing. I guess this is why everyone always says ‘Wow, it’s December already!’ or the frequent ‘You son of a gun Winchesterz, you stole my year waiting for your next blog post!’**

It’s crazy how fast time flies, especially when you’ve already got a routine set out. Wake up in the morning, go to work, go to the gym, sleep, eat in between sometime, somewhere. I’m always encouraging people to break the routine, and to do things they haven’t done, or to simply just stop at the end of the day for a good half hour and just…be. I normally do this; I am lucky enough to live in a place where the sun sets at around 7:30 pm, lucky enough to work at a place literally a stone’s throw from the beach, so even if I finish work at 6, I still have enough time to enjoy the sun setting over the glorious Indian Ocean. I’m starting to see more and more people doing the same, and I can tell you right now, in that span of half hour to an hour of watching the sun set, everyone who is watching in that moment has never felt more serene in their entire life. It’s as if all the troubles in the world are gone, a weight’s off your shoulders, and it’s just you (and well I guess the others who are also in your vicinity). It’s important to have this moment, as with the way the world is going, everyone’s beginning to forget how to breathe.

Wow-wee, didn’t mean to get all zen on you guys like that, but what comes to mind, goes onto paper. Or well, web post. If you’d like, please, read on. If not, happy holidays, stay safe and I’ll be seeing you on the side of 2015!

Wishes

If you’ve ever been a child, you’ve made a wish. Whether it be upon a shooting star, a wishpuff (I don’t know what they’re actually called, I just call them wishpuffs…they’re the little plant / weed that you blow on and all the little things fly off of it), blowing out birthday candles, finding an eyelash and blowing on it or 11:11, you know for a fact that you’ve made a wish. Come to think of it, a lot of wish-making involves blowing on something. I wonder why that is, hm. Oh shush, you naughty bunch, I know exactly where your minds went. So back on topic, the one cardinal rule to follow in order for your wishes to come true is to never reveal the exact details of what you wished for to anybody. Whoever came up with this is extremely cunning; now the only person who will ever know if their wish came true is the person who made the wish. There can be no bystanders or witnesses to such an event, simply because the wish-maker has practically been sworn to secrecy. The real questions I have for you guys are: do you believe in wishes? Have you actually ever made one and stuck to one? How’s that worked out for you?

Do tell me, because I’m pretty sure I’ve rarely ever made wishes, and the one time I made a wish with all my heart, it came true. Miracle, right?
