Here is the sun, coming up behind the trees on one of my morning walks. I adore that tall palm tree. My neighbor had it put in, and has since moved away, but I shared the photo on Facebook and thanked her for having planted it. Imagine the scene without it. Not at all the same. Think about that one tree that just illuminates your street. This one is it. Without it, you might not know I live in Florida. Our duplex houses all look similar on my street, with just a little variation. Our neighborhood is plain, but the greenery and trees make it so rich. This tree adds personality and character. It frames the rising sun so splendidly, don’t you think?
This post is in response to Jacqueline Obyikocha’s Thursday challenge over at http://acookingpotandtwistedtales.com/ Don’t you just love her name? I do! Head over and check out her blog! I suggest you follow her blog, if you are not already. I also suggest you take a sunrise walk, if you’re not already doing that. Of course, it being the height of summer, one has to get up really early to catch it. I am planning to do this a few times this summer, as it is so renewing and inspirational. Between my dog’s needs and my son’s early work hours, it should not be too difficult for me! A glimpse of that sun creeping up into view, whether it be the rays springing forth, or as in this photo, the gradual changing and lightening of the sky’s color, and I am again reminded, Life is good.
