"We ourselves cannot put any magic spells on this world. 
The world is its own magic."

 Chilly walk, watching the sun rise. Beautiful solitude. Planning my day.

 Thoughts, suspended. Hurt on hold. Only beauty and love exist in this perfect moment...

"The excursion is the same 
when you go looking for your sorrow 
as when you go looking for your joy."

 Happy Birthday, Rodney...
“He smelled the garden
the yellow shield of light smote his eyes, 
and he whispered, "Life is so beautiful."
Yes, he thought, if I can die saying, 
"Life is so beautiful," 
then nothing else is important.” 
~ Mario Puzo, The Godfather

"Live strong and live with passion." 
~Tony Robbins

Sometimes the day gets away from me and I forget to post my sunrise. It is either still in my camera, or ready to go, but I have gone on to another project, thinking I have already posted to this blog.

Here is yesterday's sunrise. It was so beautiful and I think I shot 100 photos with both my cameras. I also was chopping vegetables for turkey stew as I watched the light shine through my kitchen. The colors and clouds were spectacular and really flavored the stew deliciously. 

I never get tired of this morning miracle. Do you?

Each Friend

"Each friend represents a world in us, 
a world possibly not born until they arrive, 
and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born."

Susi and Bev are meeting in Seattle today. Tell me again why I did not join them?
