An Early Morning Calm

An early morning calm. The photo came to me via text from my brother in-law, Parker. He took the photo with his iPhone yesterday early morning from his backyard.  Ana and Parker's house sits on a bay in Shalimar, Florida. 

On special days like yesterday, the water before sunrise pure, accomplished, absolute, almost stainless and calm.  

The vistas challenging the senses. 

The beauty grand, the peace natural, present, you can almost inhale the emotion with every breath. 

And there is power, power in the splash of sky, the clouds announcing their participation, their collaboration in this awesome portrait of nature. 

Thanks for sharing this awesome photo Parker !

THERE WAS NEVER 
A NIGHT OR A PROBLEM 
THAT COULD DEFEAT 
SUNRISE OR HOPE.

I started early, took my dog,
And visited the sea;
The mermaids in the basement
Came out to look at me.

FOR WHATEVER WE LOSE 
(LIKE YOU AND ME) 
IT'S ALWAYS OURSELVES 
WE FIND IN THE SEA.
