sunrise: 6:56 blog time remaining: 27 days
Another monochromatic, drizzly day that surprised me with stirring loveliness. Is it just me, or is there really something special about the light and the layout of this day? The brightness of the sumac, sparkling raindrops, multi-hued grasses, geometric tree designs, the sound of a little rushing creek in our back field, the soft squish of mud under my boots...it all delighted my senses this morning.
Phenomena like this one are among the many reasons why I have been anticipating the end of this blog year with some angst. I don't want to let go of these mornings or the many benefits they have offered. On the other hand, I CAN'T WAIT TO SLEEP IN!!
Some of you may have already noticed that I made a change yesterday and have prepared to carry on with my sunrise outings in a new blog after Dec. 31st. It will continue to be based on communions with sunrise - just not every day. It's called the sunrise blogger. In creating it, I learned that blogspot.com only gives you one "about me" profile for all of your blogs, so you'll see there that the "about me" is changed on this blog as well.
The year of getting up to meet the day will be over, and must end. However, I would love to have my regular readers move on with me to the sunrise blogger. I'd even love to have them make sunrise contributions of their own. Check it out.
