04.27.2018 Moody Bridge Oaken Dawn

Yep…I’m still here but not into blogging all that much for a while now.  I enjoyed this morning’s experience  and thought I would share it.

Sometimes things happen that you aren’t expecting and this definitely fits that category.  It was socked in overcast when Bentley and I made our 4 a.m. trip into the backyard, not even a single star was visible, and it seemed the sun would be a no-show.  But for a few minutes some light penetrated the thick clouds and lit the sky.

Happy Spring everybody.

    Great to see you back, and with such a colorful morning! Really nice. Even without a camera these are the sorts of experiences that for me add so much enjoyment to life. But capturing an image of them is always nice, too. 🙂 I’m glad you were out there to see this.

    • Hi, Todd. I think the first consideration for most of us is the experience. I’d much rather be out, even on a less than colorful morning, than sitting inside. Even yardwork is better. 🙂

    I thought of you this week when I was trying to get myself down to the beach by sunrise. Perhaps next week I’ll make it.

    I’m certainly glad you’re still in the habit of greeting the dawn. This is a memorable image: tree and colors both. And I’m glad you mentioned Bentley, as I’ve thought about him a time or two, as well.

    • This tree has given me a couple of nice shots including one similar and another in a thick fog. 4 seems to be coming earlier all the time and I guess age is catching up with me in that regard. Just harder to get out.
      Bentley is doing great. We’ve got him down to a reasonable weight but he feels so deprived for being denied endless meals.

      • Your comment that “4 seems to be coming earlier all the time and I guess age is catching up with me in that regard” reminded me of Henry Austin Dobson’s poem “The Paradox of Time.”

        Time goes, you say? Ah no!
        Alas, Time stays, we go;
        Or else, were this not so,
        What need to chain the hours,
        For Youth were always ours?
        Time goes, you say?-ah no!

        Ours is the eyes’ deceit
        Of men whose flying feet
        Lead through some landscape low;
        We pass, and think we see
        The earth’s fixed surface flee:-
        Alas, Time stays,-we go!

        Once in the days of old,
        Your locks were curling gold,
        And mine had shamed the crow.
        Now, in the self-same stage,
        We’ve reached the silver age;
        Time goes, you say?-ah no!

        Once, when my voice was strong,
        I filled the woods with song
        To praise your ‘rose’ and ‘snow’;
        My bird, that sang, is dead;
        Where are your roses fled?
        Alas, Time stays,-we go!

        See, in what traversed ways,
        What backward Fate delays
        The hopes we used to know;
        Where are our old desires?-
        Ah, where those vanished fires?
        Time goes, you say?-ah no!

        How far, how far, O Sweet,
        The past behind our feet
        Lies in the even-glow!
        Now, on the forward way,
        Let us fold hands, and pray;
        Alas, Time stays,-we go!
