“Every moment, a voice, out of this world, calls on our soul, to wake up and rise.”
Every time I look at this photograph, I get the same feeling I did when I first hiked the trail. The instructions for this challenge say to, “share a picture that takes us on a journey into the unknown.” Although I have done a great deal of my hiking in this area, this one was a new for me. As I headed up the road, I couldn’t see anything much farther than where I was walking. As the minutes passed, I began to get a strange sense that something could be lurking just around the next corner or off the side just off of the trail.
Of course I knew that their was (almost) no chance that anything could actually be lurking in the woods, but this picture invites you into the unknown and out of this world.
Taken after several days of rain, I was out hiking and when I stopped for water I looked up and saw the most beautiful blue sky with puffy white clouds mixed in. Since all I had seen for days were grey skies, the sense of relief I got when I looked up was remarkable.
As you know, I love a good sunrise! So even though I have posted sunrises before, I couldn’t resist taking these pictures this morning on my way to pick up some bagels for breakfast. Of course I left my camera at home so I had to take these with my cell phone.
“This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.”
“Rest but never quit. Even the sun has a sinking spell each evening. But it always rises the next morning. At sunrise, every soul is born again.”
“We need to be reminded sometimes that a sunrise last but a few minutes. But its beauty can burn in our hearts eternally.”
“The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you. Don’t go back to sleep.”
“Yet even the brightest of sunrises must come to an end.”
