Maybe I am more affected than I thought by the few hours of light during this part of winter. Perhaps I am relieved at surviving a cold night. Perhaps I am just easily amused.
In any event, this morning I was inordinately thrilled to see almost see the sun above my horizon as I was leaving the cabin this morning. A few minutes out of my driveway I really did see the sun rising above the eastern hills.
I think part of my happiness here is simply that I can now again take morning photos for Roundtop Ruminations. From late November to, well, now, I have to take photos during the weekends and dole them out during the next week’s posts. I really don’t like doing that. I like to see something in the mornings, take a photo of it and then post about what’s in that photo for the day.
During these darker times, what I end up posting about on any given day may have nothing to do with the photo. Sometimes the photo feels like "old news" too. I might have a photo of the ice storm that melted away three days ago. I might have a photo of barren winter landscape when I have snow on the ground. I just don’t like that.
Now, with the coming of the light again, I can at least begin to return to taking photos in the morning and then blogging about that. Yes, I know I’m pushing it a bit. After all, it’s really not all that light in the mornings right now, and on a cloudy morning I likely still won’t be able to take a photo. But this is a start.
Happy Friday! On Monday morning sunrise will be yet another minute earlier than today.
