Consider the Dawn: A Writer Wednesday Post

In retreat mode my words are going elsewhere now, but my eyes remember you, dear Reader. On my way to an early yoga class this grace appeared. Retreat offers time to consider the dawn–the glorious humility of daybreak.

It made me reflect on the common phrase “Ushering in a new dawn.” Do dawns need to be ushered? Aren’t all dawns by their very nature new anyway? It’s never the same old dawn, after all. Yet dawn itself is very old indeed–perhaps our oldest earthly truth.

Whatever the answers, I do want to say that your ongoing attentiveness has helped occasion a new dawn for me as thinker, writer and creator. It is my joy to share light with you; know you do the same for me.

    Thanks for calling attention to dawns. I love them, too; constant renewed possibility, and quiet, and extra special because I am usually sleeping and miss so many of them!

    • IreneOGarden

      Thanks dear Pat–I love to think of you scurrying about on the occasional one!

    That’s another beautiful photo… time for a retrospective? Would love to see the “COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNES” of a grouping of your photos —– I am supposing their juxtaposition / display would be a thinking language all its own….

    • IreneOGarden

      Much appreciated Mark–One of these days an exhibit would be fun!

    There is a glory to the sun whether dawning or setting. And it is, likewise, never the same old sunset. Photo taken in the oldest of new world discoveries, the Dominican Republic.

    Trying again with photo … Alas no luck

    • IreneOGarden

      Too bad–it’s a lovely shot! Perhaps if you put it on FB people can see it! Have a marvelous time!

    On this snowy, rainy, February morning I have just taken the time to celebrate this new dawn in January. No, no two dawns are exactly the same – yet the same hope for what each dawn prevails.
