How much more you can appreciate a sunrise after a good night's sleep.
How for a brief time the rising sun can set the sky afire, and then so quickly fade to gray.
How easily one could miss such a show.
I was up at seven this morning, not my usual hour, but feeling good after a real night's sleep. Instead of getting going on the day, I planted myself in front of my computer, to catch up on blogs. I have a window that looks out through the trees toward the southeast.
I suddenly caught a glimpse of glowing red. I hurried downstairs, grabbed my camera, and was out on the front porch. But with so many trees and houses in the way, I had to walk farther. I grabbed heavy slippers and found myself standing at the end of our long driveway, in my robe, out in the street, in the cold gray dawn, taking pictures of a fiery eastern sky.
By the time I got back to the house, it was gone.
The saying goes " Red sky in the morning, sailors take warning", and I do know it is going to rain later. That's OK. I have indoor activities planned.
But I greeted the day in a spectacular way!
And I even picked up the newspaper while I was about it.
