First Flash of Eden

The upside to having cats who absolutely MUST be patted, skritched and otherwise cosseted to hell and back at 5 AM, is that I’m up. Coffee gets made and I'm able to hit our little beach in time to witness the brill colors and peace of dawn. I can also motor down to Nantasket for same. Either, both!

These last two mornings, the tide’s been way the hell out so I’ve gotten in a couple really fab beach walks. With the cooler temps of mid/late September, most vacas are done, kiddles are back at school – the beach is nearly empty at that early hour. It’s just me and a few fellow sunrise watchers, walkers and joggers. Molto tranquillo and shit.

There's always a story. It's all stories, really. The sun coming up every day is a story. Everything's got a story in it.
~ Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky

Not knowing when the dawn will come I open every door.
~ Emily Dickinson

There is only one day left, always starting over: it is given to us at dawn and taken away from us at dusk.
~ Jean-Paul Sartre
