St. George Island Sunrise Guest Blog

It’s a Silent Sunday with a shout out to Kristin for this gorgeous photo of sunrise on St. George Island Florida,  Thanks for sharing this beautiful image to start the new week.

St. George Island Sunrise Florida

Salutation to the Dawn

A friend sent this beautiful video to me in a text.

After I pressed the arrow, the video began to play.

I knew it would come.

I was patient.

Expectant.

You have to wait for it. I thought of past sunrises I’ve seen in person on other beaches. Alone or sometimes with friends or family.

He captured the scene perfectly, with zero camera shake. I thought I’d post it for Silent Sunday but then I remembered in Sixth grade we had to memorize and recite The Salutation to the Dawn

Salutation to the Dawn

Listen to the salutation to the dawn,

Look to this day for it is life, the very life of life, 

In its brief course lie all the verities and realities of our existence. 

The bliss of growth, the splendour of beauty, 

For yesterday is but a dream and tomorrow is only a vision, 

But today well spent makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope. 

Look well therefore to this day. 

Such is the salutation to the dawn.

Sunrise from Savannas Ft. Pierce Florida Guest Blog

How about this gorgeous photo?  Marlene (Erika’s mom)  just sent me this beautiful sunrise from the Savannas- Ft. Pierce Florida to us in Ohio.  I messaged right away and asked if she would be guest blogger. She agreed and here is the sunrise.

Found Rainbow at Dawn

A found rainbow at dawn.

Right on my polka dot sheets. I’ve put away the flannel ones until next winter.

This week’s challenge is your place in the world.

My comfortable bed seemed a good place to start the day, finding my place in the world.

The Ocean, A Beach: WPC

“Share your happy place” asked Cheri Lucas Rowlands at WordPress.

A place you want to return to again and again. A favorite place.

Sunrise at a beach, the ocean waves rhythmic sound, and the added bonus – knitting and coffee.

Carolina Beach Dawn

Weekly Photo Challenge- GLOW created by Jen H. this week.

This photo glows to me. Here are Anna and Maura greeting the sun. (Unretouched image)

Just happened to have spent last weekend with the family at Carolina Beach, NC and we got up each morning to watch the sun rise .  One day was overcast but we enjoyed our early breakfast and waiting for the light to come.
