If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning, torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day... EB White

Subtle and sublime start to the day
Isn't it great the way the sun gradually rises to start the day? It doesn't hammer us over the head, suddenly glaring at us in full force. Rather it slowly creaps up over the horizon, giving us ample time to acclimate to the start of day. I'm growing more appreciative of this rhythm of life. Nature's slow, steady beat is in dramatic contrast to our new electronic pace of life, which is 24/7, go, go, go.
This morning when I took my camera down to the pond I was surprised to find a Great Blue Heron practically right beside me on the shore.
I had to be still with the camera, which was difficult while giving about half a pint of blood to the mosquitoes during the process.
