Skywatch Friday: Tones of Gentleness

I believe that people who get up early in the morning do it for the light.  Maybe they have to go to work at that hour, but the work they're going to puts them in the path of this light--a light the night shift doesn't know anything about.  Morning people are morning people for a lot of reasons.  And every time we press the shutter button on our cameras, we are saying, "I love you," to that light, to the gentle swelling of the air in that light, to the clear sounds that move through that light.  Ever picture says, "I wish this were forever."
 It is, of course.  That these and other sky images appear in memes on so many digital platforms speaks to the pervasiveness of this passion for morning.  Which is to say, a passion for life, for the living, for every being that moves through this air and this water and this light.
As time moves on, the light becomes more intense and harder on the eyes.  So it goes.  We turn around, we complete the circle, and the soft air cools are bodies.  Morning is filled with tones of gentleness.  I wake up for this, and then I keep going.
