I have received many requests for memorial sunrise cards and
photos. I wrote this in response to those requests:
Shed not a tear on my passing,
For my love is still nearby.
Just look for it in the morning,
When the sun first meets the sky.

the mat as a standard inscription.

Life is so fragile, it hangs like a drop of mist on a blade of sea grass. It
would seem that the slightest breath of sea breeze would knock it off and yet it
clings to life, hanging in the balance. And inside the drop is a little world
all it's own. If you look closely, you can see that world reflected inside that drop,
so precious, so fragile, waiting. It clings to the blade as we cling to life,
fragile yet strong, a contradiction of its self, which is what life really is.
If angels come to earth,
to bring us love and light,
perhaps there's someplace special
they choose to spend the night.
To me it looks like an Angel might have slept here last night

On my 62nd birthday
Musings of an 'old' man
I guess first I should thank you for coming here today to
visit my website. It was twelve years ago today sitting on the buoy in Key
West waiting to turn 50 that I decided I needed to do something with my
Since then I have been trying to do it.
Today as I was waiting for sunrise, taking a moment to be
thankful and think of others less fortunate than myself, that this seagull
came soaring down from the north on the light breeze. I caught a glimpse of
him/her out of the corner of my eye. He flapped a few time right in front of
me close to the surface of the ocean then banked right and rose and turned
to head back north. I captured this movement and afterward thought of what
this might mean. I could go on about what I might read into this, I have
many ideas. A sign, a message, a visitation? Who can say.
if you are interested in more, please, scroll down, otherwise
just take a moment to enjoy this beautiful image I was lucky enough to
capture on my 62nd birthday.
So, you are reading on!
You may or may not know I do
some writing, examples of it are now on the Sunrise Today tab, but I often
come across others writings that touch me more than my own. Number one on my
list is Ekhart Tolle's The Flowering of Human Consciousness. Too long to
type here but it starts out "Earth, 114 million years ago, one morning just
after sunrise the first flower ever to appear on the planet opens up to
receive the rays of the sun ... One day a critical threshold was reached,
and suddenly there would have been an explosion of color and scent all over
the planet - if a perceiving consciousness had been there to witness it."
this makes me stop and think,
what and WHEN was the first sunrise?
I know this comes from a TV
show but take a moment to think about it.
"We are but visitors on this
rock hurtling through time and space at sixty-six thousand mile an hour
tethered to a burning sphere by an invisible force in an unfathomable
universe. This, most of us take for granted while refusing to believe that
these forces have any more effect on us than a butterfly beating it's wings
halfway around the world. Maybe the answer lies further from our grasp."
For me, I thank you for your
visitation. having come here for what ever reason means we have touched each
other's lives. As artists say when you purchase a piece of their art you
take home a piece of them. Likewise you leave a part of yourself with the
artist just by looking at their work.
On my birthday I wish
you the best!
