Sunrise over the Indian River, Florida

I am a morning person.
Maybe because I grew up in farm country, maybe just because the wildlife I love is more active in the early hours just before and after dawn, but I love the sunrise.
At our place here on the Indian River in Florida, I watch the sunrise and watch as the river begins to come alive with fish, birds and the other early risers – the dolphins, the otters and my other fellow anglers.
I think about cousin Ralph Waldo Emerson’s thinking on the subject:
“I see the spectacle of morning from the hilltop over against my house, from daybreak to sunrise, with emotions which an angel might share. The long slender bars of cloud float like fishes in the sea of crimson light. From the earth, as a shore, I look out into that silent sea. I seem to partake its rapid transformations; the active enchantment reaches my dust, and I dilate and conspire with the morning wind.”
The dawn is a time of renewal and action, a looking forward to the day ahead.
May we all have a great day!
