I am always waiting for the light..
to either photograph..
or paint, the light is so important...
but it doesn't matter whether you are an artist or not,
the light is important for us all..
"an awake heart is like a sky that pours light"
I have always been an early riser..
I love nothing more than than to be up with the birds
listening to their songs..
the mourning dove crying..
the crow reminding me to pay attention..
balancing my coffee cup
on the arm of my chair...
and marveling at the dew drops...
"I discovered the secrets of the seas in the meditation upon the dew drop"
just breathing in the serenity of the early morning
and thinking that all things come to pass..
not just the hardships..
but in our organic world,
even the beautiful moments..
and our special people..
and so I have been charging myself
with being willing to see it..
each morning with renewed appreciation..
a bittersweet surrender...
while I await the light...
