This morning I was driving to work, and the sun was rising across the bay. It always does. It always takes my breath away. I wish that I could describe it. The water is sometimes the color of flint, but looks soft, somehow, like a silk gown on a woman’s stomach blown ever so gently by a fan. And then the sunlight looks like yellow diamonds, scattered across it that have begun to melt into each other, as if you need to blink but don’t want to.

Every day I see this, and every day I try to come up with words to describe it. It’s like a game I play with myself. Today, the word I thought of was horizon. When you look straight towards the sun at just the right time, the horizon bleeds into the sky. The line between sky and water is blurry at best, as if the sun has reached out to the water and held on, for just a few minutes.

I was struck by the thought that this is the same, every day. Sometimes the colors change a little, but it is always there. It is always beautiful and magical. And somehow, just a bit of that seeped into me, and I felt like today is a new day. Some things are the same, but something is different. I smiled, and I put on bright pink lipstick. My line blurred. Some of what was there is gone, and of course some will stay. But right now, right this moment, things are okay. And tomorrow morning they will be too. And the day after that, and the day after that.

That was a lovely description and I know the struggle of seeing or feeling soemthing and struggling to find the words. And often, especially where Mother Nature is concerned or the sensory experience of a woman, the words seem to feel just a bit inadequate, but I keep trying. With your descrition I could see the pictuer and feel the emotion. Thanks.

Well shibuza, no, actually you are incorrect. If you would please direct your attention to the time stamping versus whatever time it really is. You will note that the time stamping is done in Pacific time. I am on Eastern time, thus the time stamping is 3 hours behind me. So I actually wrote this at 9:31am after settling in at work.

All better now?

And even if it were artistic license, last I checked, this is my blog.
