“Every morning was a cheerful invitation to make my life of equal simplicity, and I may say innocence, with Nature herself.”
Henry David Thoreau - Walden
I have never been a morning person but lately I rise early and take in the stillness and peace that a morning can bring. The time just before the sun wakes up to meet us is MAGIC, just as magic as the time just before she passes the light to the moon and goes to greet another. These are my favorite times of day to create a photograph. There are so many things to be grateful for in this place and a sense of HOPE each morning in what the day will bring.
May the blessing of light be on you—
light without and light within.
May the blessed sunlight shine on you
and warm your heart
till it glows like a great peat fire.
