The mornings
always seem so promising
I start every day
with a clear slate
that means
I can get straight to my work
but first I have to do this
and that
and then
another thing
and then
something else
pops up suddenly
that needs tending to
NOW
and before I know it
the morning is almost gone
and I’m thinking
“the afternoon looks promising…”

Here Comes The Sun

I joined my friends Ken Gray and Kim Sherman at Radnor Lake for the sunrise on Sunday, January 12. Waiting for the sun to appear… this is probably as good a shot as I got…

Of course, as is usually the case, I saw what the other guys came up with and think they got the best of the situation.

Ken really nailed the actual sunrise, and got some great shots of the wildlife as well.

AndI love what Kim did with the sunburst through the trees.  Now why didn’t I think of that??

I wonder if that’s the way it goes with this business… does it always seem like the other guy got the better shot?  I’ll have to take that up with my therapist…
