353: A walk at sunrisePosted: September 11, 2011
I know a lot of people are blogging about 9-11 today. I’m not going to do that. I haven’t read or watched or listened to the news at all today.
Instead, I’m going to take you on an early morning walk around Breezy Acres. I’ll try not to spoil it too much with a lot of words.
It was foggy with a heavy, drippy dew covering everything. I went barefoot for part of the walk. The feel of the cool dew on my feet was soothing and refreshing at the same time. I like being in touch with the earth that way.
I walked through the meadows and down to the pond.
It was incredibly quiet. Even the birds had little to say. There was the occasional rustling in the grass and the sound of dew dripping from the trees.
Down at the pond I turned around and looked back at the house. The sun was just beginning to rise up over the trees, the light shining through the fog in long beams.
As the sun moved a little higher, things really began to sparkle and shine.
There was a garden spider sitting in the center of this web. It moved before I had a chance to capture it with the camera, hiding somewhere below until I walked away.
The sunlight on the morning dew makes pretty bokeh.
And the dew was so thick it almost resembled frost.
I went back up the hill towards the house and the sun, grateful for the early morning gift of peace and beauty.
Thank you for joining me on my walk today.
