This post is for Lorrie Bowden.
She lives on a more southerly eastern coast.
Yesterday’s Morning Is Broken post brought about many conversations and insights.
She and I agreed to take a morning sunrise photo today and compare.
Just for grins.
This morning I woke to rain.
Discouraged, I rose anyway and checked the forecast.
Rain was moving out.
This gave me time for coffee,
and quality time with my dog.
The ocean was calm, like a lake.
The first thing I saw was a small fishing boat scurrying across the horizon.
Reminded me of bass boats pre-dawn on the lake during bass tournaments.
Not a common sighting on the ocean.
The next thing I noticed were the gnats.
Calm winds = biting gnats.
I know this and have dressed for the occasion.
Although I agreed to this fun exercise I didn’t forget yesterday’s epiphany.
Few photos were taken.
Much walking and meditation occurred
in between swatting biting gnats that dangled in my hair.
The metamorphosis was grand.
Cool, grey morning blossomed into a golden, bright sunrise.
Late in coming and glorious.
