Sunrise at the Gate

This morning’s walk to the gate felt like an injection of spiritual stem cells.

I was mesmerized by the shadow of the open gate and the sunlight on the tree trunk  as it rose through the branches, changing darkness into light.

Thanks to writer Richard Gilbert, who posted an excellent, thought-provoking series called Christopher Hitchens, God & me earlier this year. It was in that series that I first heard Joan Osborne sing the iconic One of Us. Not surprising, really, to think of it this morning. Enjoy.

    1. Thanks, Richard — & thanks for turning me on to Joan Osborne. I checked into what she’s doing these days and just downloaded a new back-to-her-blues-roots album, Bring It On Home, which I’m enjoying right now.


    1. Thank you P-Mouse. I sometimes think all I do is walk back and forth from house to gate. What is so fascinating about that? But then, I’m bashed senseless with the beauty and symbols all around me that I don’t always fully appreciate. I think the fog added to the mystery!


Thanks for stopping by. What are you writing about today?
