Though outwardly a gloomy shroud,
The inner half of every cloud
Is bright and shining:
I therefore turn my clouds about
And always wear them inside out
To show the lining.
~Ellen Thorneycroft Fowler
The glory of light…
From the first blush of sunrise, to the bright colours on clear summer days, from the rich golden glow of late afternoon, to the soft kiss of sunset, light is a glorious thing.
“Light is the first of painters. There is no object so foul that intense light will not make it beautiful.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Come into the light of things. Let nature be your teacher.” ~William Wordsworth.
Early on a summer morning
Early in the morning, while it was still cool, I took a walk in a local park. Here are my favourite photos. Click on an image to view the full size gallery.
Walking uplifts the spirit. Breathe out the poisons of tension, stress, and worry; breathe in the power of God. Send forth little silent prayers of goodwill toward those you meet. Walk with a sense of being a part of a vast universe. Consider the thousands of miles of earth beneath your feet; think of the limitless expanse of space above your head. Walk in awe, wonder, and humility. Walk at all times of day. In the early morning when the world is just waking up. Late at night under the stars. Along a busy city street at noontime.
