Morning Is Breaking

Here in the west, we have great sunsets. I have seen the most spectacular sunsets here of anywhere I have lived in the world. Especially in winter, when we have interesting clouds to add to the glory, the sunsets are rich, ever-changing canvases of pure color. We stop almost every evening to admire them. Each year, as we are sorting through pictures taken the previous 12 months, we inevitably have hundreds of sunset pictures, each more dramatic than the next.

But, this week, My Beloved broke the early morning's sleepy calm by exclaiming, "Quick! Look!" and capturing this image of Mt. Tamalpais bathed in pink sunrise light. A moment later, it was gone. No two days are the same here. We are blessed.

First Cookiecrumb gets "12 Days of Christmas" stuck in my head. Now you have me humming Cat Stevens. Of course, that is better than the former. And lovely photo.

Zoomie: I'll take a dawn picture on Dec. 21. Snore, grumble. Shortest day of the year.

Dagny: I invented a service called Catster to help rid you of tunes stuck in your head. Unfortunately, the song Catster suggests is Morning Has Broken.
(Me, I've got Hansel und Gretel -- Engelbert Humperdinck, the original composer -- in mine.)

Dagny, glad I didn't choose an artist you hate!

Cookiecrumb, can't wait for the Solstice myself! I'm a confirmed Druid and I love it when the light starts to come back!

Rev.Biggles, you're so full of it your eyes should be brown! I see better sky pictures on your blog all the time! :-) xo
