Another Ossining sunrise taken with my crappy cell and a little added enhancement!

Another Day…

My place of employment for the last 18 1/2 years.

Waiting for the clock to strike 6:30 am so I can enter the building.

The view just outside the door of my first US History class of the day.

Looking up at the tower at Ossining High School. Many years ago classes used to be held here.

The Calm Before The Storm…

I usually get to school around 6:30 am every day. At this time it is pretty much guaranteed that I am the only person walking the second floor where I have been situated now for almost 11 years. Within an hour, this same hallway will be swarming with teen angst. A diverse cross section of humanity waiting for the day to begin, waiting to see what the day will deliver. Sitting next to their lockers, they talk about their day, their classes, their friends and the weekend. As crazy as it sounds, the energy that the kids give off is infectious. That is why working in a high school is the best job you could ask for.

Truly the calm before the storm.

The Sky’s The Limit

When I pulled into the parking lot at work yesterday, the clouds were the color of cotton candy. Hovering above the building was a huge pink mass that appeared to be motionless. Even with the lack of motion and the beauty of the clouds, the photo conveys more in that single moment than I could ever put into words on this page.

When I am lucky enough to see a sunrise such as this, the Terence McKenna quote at the beginning of this post makes perfect sense. Would being trapped in either photo be such a bad thing? An interesting quote to think about….

It was an excellent way to start the day!
