"Truly it is glorious, our being here." 

So many different emotions evolve as the sun presents our new day... Some mornings the light is so bright, I must swallow it in many breaths.

7:13 AM Magnificent sky jewel. Burning gold into blue.

Perpetual Kindness

"Nothing can make our life, or the lives of other people, 
more beautiful than perpetual kindness."

Banana Pancakes

"Maybe we can sleep in
Make you banana pancakes
Pretend like it's the weekend now."

7:07 AM: Banana pancakes and my sky. These pancakes are leftovers, made six months ago and frozen and then I found great organic bananas yesterday at Ingles Market, so this was an easy meal fix. (I decided to pause and pamper myself -- still working on my taxes.)

This morning the beauty is a celebration of grays.

Rise to Greatness

"It is the nature of man to rise to greatness 
if greatness is expected of him. " 

6:54 AM: Glorious color and light in the clouds above Asheville this morning. And the trees stand firm against the honest sky...

The Excursion

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

Did I tell you that I bought a new chair for me to sit and watch the sunrise?

Hard Work

"Miracles come after a lot of hard work."
~ Sue Bender

Great delight this morning, working in my garden, moving rocks and mulch, listening to the birds sing, and watching the sun rise.

The Color of Shadows

"Daydreams, as it were… I look out the window sometimes 
to seek the color of the shadows and the different greens in the trees, 
but when I get ready to paint
 I just close my eyes and imagine a scene."
